WAYNE, NJ, April 15, 2013 – JVC today announced the availability of a new premium camcorder designed to capture high-quality video of fast-moving action. The new JVC Procison GC-PX100 offers high bit rate progressive recording to deliver high resolution HD images, plus high-speed recording for super slow-motion video. The camera’s high performance combines with Wi-Fi connectivity and specialized apps to make the GC-PX100 ideal for capturing and analyzing fast-moving action.
The camera shoots Full HD 1920 x 1080/60p video at 36Mbps, a bit rate that allows Full HD slow-motion playback, perfect for motion analysis or special effects. Premium performance is further assured by the fast F1.2 lens with 10x optical zoom, 1/2.3” 12.8 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor and optical image stabilization. Multi-format recording offers the flexibility to choose the HD format that best suits the situation.
Five shooting speeds are available, ranging from 120fps to 600fps, easily selected using a dial conveniently located next to the lens. It’s also possible to grab bursts of nine still images from video at the touch of a button, similar to what can be done using the motor drive on an SLR still camera. Other shooting modes for capturing action include high-speed digital still recording at up to 60fps and variable speed time-lapse recording. Zoom Position Memory, ideal for analyzing sports plays, allows quick switching among three angles of view — Full Wide, Full Tele, and a user-settable position in between. Go from full field team formation analysis to a tight shot of a goal being scored, with instant switching of focus, zoom and exposure. Click here to continue reading…
WAYNE, NJ, April 8, 2013 –Five new “XX by JVC” headphones launched today, with around-ear, on-ear and DJ-style models joining the current line-up of inner-ear models in the company’s XTREME XPLOSIVES series.
The new headphones feature the series’ signature rugged styling, high gloss finish and durable construction, plus heavy-duty Neodymium driver units and Extreme Deep Bass Ports, that together have made the XX series by JVC a favorite among music fans who like their bass delivered with a punch.
New for 2013 is a one-button remote and microphone compatible with iPhone, Blackberry and Android devices. Three models – HA-MR77X/HA-MR55X/HA-SR44X – include this feature, as well as a Smart Switch that allows for compatibility with most other smart phones. The microphone is housed in the inline single-button remote that allows users to play, stop and skip tracks, as well as answer phone calls. Two of the five new models are available without the remote and mic – the HA-M55X and HA-S44X.
Full range sound quality is assured through the use of extra-large neodymium driver unit –1.57” (40mm) for the on-ear HA-S44X/HA-SR44X; 1.97” (50mm) for the over-ear HA-M55X/HA-MR55X; and 2.24” (57mm) for the DJ-style over-ear HA-MR77X. The combination of the large driver units and the Extreme Deep Bass Ports is what gives the headphones their ability to reproduce deep bass.
WAYNE, NJ, March 18, 2013 – Two JVC live streaming cameras that can be remotely controlled via tablets, smartphones and PCs are now available, the company announced today.
The new JVC GV-LS2 and GV-LS1 combine the video performance of a top-quality conventional camcorder with the unmanned capabilities of a high-end security camera and roll them into a compact device with Wi-Fi and remote control.
The JVC GV‐LS2 and GV‐LS1 live streaming cameras offer a number of advantages over other types of streaming cameras. Their pan/tilt/zoom operation can be controlled remotely from a PC or smart device, and is quiet compared to gear‐driven mechanisms. This silent operation in the GV‐LS2 is achieved through the use of low‐noise DD motors to move the camera, while the GV‐LS1 pans/tilts/zooms electronically. Android and iOS apps for remote operation are available for free download.
At the heart of both models is a 1/2.3” 12.4 Megapixel Back‐Illuminated CMOS sensor and JVC’s FALCONBRID high‐speed image processing engine, which allows Full HD quality to be maintained even when only part of the entire image is used for lossless image stabilization (both models) or pan/tilt (GV‐LS1). The GV‐LS1 maintains Full HD resolution at up to 2x zoom, but is capable of up to 4x electronic zoom. The GV‐LS2 offers 10x optical zoom. This makes both models an ideal way to stream images and sound from live events as they are unobtrusive and won’t intrude on the performance. Besides HD streaming, both models offer Full HD quality AVCHD video recording onto an inserted memory card.
The newest JVC Adixxion athletes are:
• Derek Garland – professional FMX (freestyle motocross) rider who has competed in every major FMX tour.
