JVC Expands All-Weather Camcorder Line; Boosts Performance and Battery Life

JVC Everio GZ-R450B

Top model offers 1080/60p AVCHD Progressive Recording

WAYNE, NJ, June 23, 2015 - Capturing life’s adventures on video isn’t always smooth sailing, which is why JVC today announced two new rugged, weather-proof camcorders that can endure foul weather, get bounced around and still be ready to shoot. Their all-weather features, five-hour battery life, powerful optical zoom and other advanced functions offer opportunities to create unique videos that can’t easily be captured with a smartphone.

The two new JVC Everio camcorders – the GZ-R450 and GZ-R320 – feature JVC’s Quad-Proof structure that is waterproof to a depth of 16.4 feet, can withstand a drop from 4.9 feet, is freeze-proof down to 14° and dust-proof. What’s more, both camcorders float.

All this durability comes in a camcorder form factor with video recording functions such as high-powered 40x optical zoom, advanced image stabilization and large LCD monitor. In addition, the GZ-R450 offers 1080/60p AVCHD Progressive Recording for pristine HD video.

The battery is internal for superior water resistance, which eliminates the risk of damaging the camcorder when exchanging batteries in bad weather. The battery’s five-hour life is easily extended thanks to the camcorders’ compatibility with third-party portable batteries* – the type widely available for smartphone charging.

DLA-X500R Projector "Highly Rated" by Projector Central

The latest review of a JVC home theater projector comes from Projector Central, which reviewed our DLA-X500R and awarded it a "Highly Rated" ranking, with five stars for performance, ease of use and value, and 4.5 stars for features. They were impressed with the projector's black levels, noting, "The projector's black level is deeper than deep, to the point where its black level rivals that of solid-state projectors that can turn their light sources completely off," and "It has some of the best black levels and on/off contrast performance we've seen on a lamp-based projector..." And as for picture quality: "...the projector delivers an image that is life-like and crisp, with tons of fine detail evident in high-quality HD material."

Tech Review Site Declares: "The quest for running headphones that don't fall out is over."

TechRadar.com recently took our HA-ETR40 sport headphones for a test run -- literally -- and despite some initial skepticism, the reviewer was sold! As he put it: "...when it comes to headphones NO pair of earbuds will ever stay in without surgical attachment. Until now."

JVC HA-ETR40 Sport Headphones

Apparently, reviewer Gareth Beavis has a problem getting headphones to stay in his ears. So he was very doubtful about our claims for the HA-ETR40. But he pressed on, went for a run and...."they didn't fall out. So I ran faster. They refused to budge. Lather, rinse, repeat: these JVC earbuds are the best fitting headphones my terrible expanses of skin I have for ears have ever encountered, locking in for any run type I tried over a week."

The Gumy Sport headphones, the HA-EN10 and HA-ENR15, are both sweat proof and feature a Nozzle Fit earpiece made of soft silicone and a unique shape that provides a comfortable and secure fit. The HA-ENR15 includes an in-line remote control and microphone. The HA-ETX30 and HA-ETR40 Extreme Fitness headphones feature JVC’s Pivot Motion Fit, a soft rubber rotating hook that fits within the part of the ear just above the ear canal to provide an ultra-secure yet comfortable fit. To tailor the fit to each user, the hook rotates and its position can easily be adjusted while wearing the earpiece. Both headphones are waterproof, and the HA-ETR40 includes an in-line remote and microphone.

Capture Outdoor Adventures With JVC Rugged, Weatherproof Camcorders

SALT LAKE CITY, July 31, 2014 – Smartphones might be the best choice for shooting family videos, but when it comes to capturing outdoor adventures, it’s best to stow that fragile phone and instead go for a JVC weatherproof camcorder that’s waterproof, shock proof, freeze proof and dust proof.

JVC is here at Outdoor Retailer, the largest gathering of the outdoor industry, demonstrating its full line of rugged, all-weather camcorders, including conventional full-featured models and a wearable point-of-view cam. The company’s new Everio camcorders feature JVC’s “Quad-Proof” structure – waterproof to a depth of 5 meters/16.4 feet, the ability to withstand a drop from 1.5 meters/4.9 feet, freeze-proof down to –10˚C/14˚F and dust proof – packaged in a familiar camcorder form factor. Rounding out their all-weather versatility, they float. And for extending outings on the water, the internal battery can provide 4.5 hours of recording.

The new Everio line’s Quad-Poof technologies were first offered in JVC’s Adixxion action camera, designed for shooting point-of-view action video. The Adixxion GC-XA2 offers the same weather-protection specs, but it can withstand a drop from 2 meters/6.5 feet. It features a built-in LCD monitor and Wi-Fi for streaming video to a smartphone, uploading to YouTube and still image transfer.

JVC’s Quad-Proof Everio camcorders offer a combination of performance capabilities and innovative features for those who want to take their videos beyond what a smartphone or other camcorders can deliver. In addition to their weather- and shock-proof attributes, JVC’s new Everio camcorders feature a KONICA MINOLTA HD LENS with 40x optical zoom, 2.5 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS image sensor, audio technology that reduces wind noise, and compatibility with third-party editing software, including iMovie and Final Cut Pro X.

WAYNE, NJ, May 14, 2014 – New JVC headphones designed specifically for children offer a comfortable, fun and safe alternative to adult-sized headphones for kids who want to enjoy their music, games and videos. The new JVC HA-KD6 headphones are an on-the-ear design, sized for kids and feature a volume limiter to prevent hearing damage. They’re available in four different bright color combinations and come with stickers so kids can personalize their headphones.

The HA-KD6 headphones are designed to fit children ages three and older. They come with a 2.62-foot (0.8m) cord, an ideal length for use with portable devices. A volume limiter prevents output volume from exceeding 85dB to prevent damage to young ears.

Soft ear pads make the headphones comfortable to wear for extended periods. The wide headband also contributes to comfort and can be decorated with the included stickers or a child’s own stickers. No painted parts are used, another feature that makes them safe for use by children.

The HA-KD6 headphones come in four color combinations: pink/purple, red/yellow, purple/green and yellow/blue. They will be available in April 2014 for $29.95.
