WAYNE, NJ, March 9, 2012 – The first model in a line of JVC Wi-Fi camcorders is now available. The new Everio GZ-EX250 is one of four new JVC camcorders with built-in Wi-Fi that allows video clips and still images to be emailed, wireless transfer of files to smartphones, and a range of other functions.
The Wi-Fi feature is available on four 2012 Everio camcorders that combine the benefits of a conventional camcorder, such as superior image quality and a powerful zoom, with the communication convenience of a smartphone. Several unique features are available thanks to the built-in Wi-Fi. A free app for an Android device or iPhone/iPad makes it easy to wirelessly transfer video and stills to a smartphone for quick sharing via the internet. It also allows the phone to be used as a remote control for the Everio and offers geotagging of video and photo files in conjunction with the smartphone’s GPS. Video Email allows 15-second video clips (640 x 360 pixels) to be sent directly from the Everio to up to eight email addresses. Live Monitoring allows real time monitoring on a smartphone or computer of images taken with the Everio. And Auto Photo Email automatically emails stills taken using Everio’s movement detection function to a computer or smartphone.
Like all new Everio models, the GZ-EX250 record in 1920 x 1080 Full HD based on the AVCHD format, and offers high quality recording in UXP mode with a 24 Mbps sampling rate. It also has an HDMI® output for superior results when viewing on the latest large-screen TVs.
Everio E/EX series models offer basic point-and-shoot simplicity as well as a number of helpful features. Using either of the two EX models, even beginners can shoot excellent videos with the help of Smile Meter, which shows how big a smile is in percentage points, Smile Shot, which automatically takes a digital still when it detects a great smile, and Pet Shot, which automatically shoots stills when a dog or cat faces the camera. Various animation effects, such as ribbons and glasses that correctly superimpose onto people’s faces, and handwritten titles, can be added to decorate any shot. The KONICA MINOLTA HD LENS assures high quality images, while a 40x Optical Zoom enables close-up shots from far away, with no sacrifice in optical quality. Advanced Image Stabilizer effectively counters camera shake. Another new feature for 2012 is a zoom microphone that changes the focal point to match the picture so that what’s seen can be more clearly heard. There’s even a Silent Mode that lets the user mute camcorder sounds and darken the LCD for those times when unobtrusive recording is advised, such as when recording school plays or lectures. A Windows® application to support image management, simple editing and easy sharing is supplied.

LAS VEGAS, January 10, 2012 – JVC is exhibiting a working prototype of a new “Live Stream Camera” at this year’s International CES. The technical exhibit is a demonstration of a new camera that streams live video over the Internet, complete with pan/tilt and zoom operation controllable from a remote location.
This addresses one of the prominent trends in video — the growing need for more immediate image sharing. What began decades ago as tape dubbing evolved into burning DVDs to share footage, and more recently uploading to video sharing sites on the Internet. With each progression, the time from image acquisition to sharing has shrunk dramatically. And now as demand for the ultimate in immediacy, real-time sharing, gains momentum, JVC seeks to offer a superior solution for such users. Launch of the product is expected sometime this year.
LAS VEGAS, January 10, 2012 – New JVC Everio camcorders announced today at International CES offer built-in Wi-Fi that allows video clips and still images to be emailed, wireless transfer of files to smartphones, and a range of other functions. The new Wi-Fi models are part of an all-new seven-model Everio line that spans a wide range of needs, from point-and-shoot simplicity for the casual shooter to full manual control for the serious videographer.
All new Everio models record in 1920 x 1080 Full HD based on the AVCHD format, and offer high quality recording in UXP mode with a 24 Mbps sampling rate. Also, all models offer HDMI® output for superior results when viewing on the latest large-screen TVs.
WAYNE, NJ, October 3, 2011 – JVC today announced a new digital camera that uses a new high speed imaging engine to shoot both high quality digital still images and stunning Full HD video. The JVC GC-PX10 is a true hybrid camera that shoots 12 megapixel stills and Full HD 1920 x 1080/60p video. In addition, it offers such professional-level capabilities as 60 shots per second still image shooting, 300 frames-per-second video recording for high-quality super-slow motion and the ability to capture pristine still images from video.
At the heart of the GC-PX10 is JVC’s new FALCONBRID high speed imaging engine, first seen in JVC’s Full HD 3D camcorder, the GS-TD1. FALCONBRID is a single-chip technology with the processing power to allow the GC-PX10 to record Full HD progressive video at 36Mbps for rich, detailed images. In addition, the camera can shoot 8.3 megapixel stills while recording Full HD video for clear, high-quality still images from recorded video. The camera’s image sensor is a 1/2.3” 12.75 megapixel back-Illuminated CMOS sensor.
Digital still shooting in real time offers up to 12 megapixel resolution (4000 x 3000). An ISO6400 mode is available for increased sensitivity when shooting in dark environments. Rapid-fire still shooting of 8.3 megapixel (3840 x 2160) stills is possible at 60 shots-per-second, up to 130 shots total per burst, or 12 megapixel stills at 30 frames-per-second. This surpasses the capabilities of digital SLR cameras currently available.
For super-slow motion shooting, the GC-PX10 can shoot video at 300 frames-per-second. Image resolution is VGA (640 x 360), making it more than sufficient for online posting and viewing. But more importantly, this mode can be used for approximately two hours straight. So, to offer an extreme example, it’s possible to record an entire soccer game in super-slow motion.
WAYNE, NJ, March 7, 2011 ?JVC today announced the availability of a new 3D consumer camcorder, the first on the consumer market that offers 3D video recording in Full High Definition. The new JVC GS-TD1 uses two camera lenses and two imaging sensors – one for each lens – to capture three-dimensional images in much same way that human eyes work.
3D video shot using the GS-TD1 can be viewed in 3D on any 3D TV. What’s more, the camcorder can shoot 3D video that can be burned to a Blu-ray disc or DVD-R for 3D playback on a compatible Blu-ray player.
UPDATED — January 25, 2011: The price of the JVC GS-TD1 3D camcorder has been revised to $1,699.95.
LAS VEGAS, January 6, 2011 ?JVC today announced the world’s first consumer camcorder to offer 3D recording in Full HD, thanks to a new JVC-developed high-speed processor that can produce two simultaneous Full HD images.
The new GS-TD1 uses two camera lenses and two 3.32 megapixel CMOS sensors – one for each lens – to capture three-dimensional images much the same way that human eyes work. JVC’s new high-speed imaging engine simultaneously processes the two Full HD images – left and right images at 1920 x 1080i – within that single chip. The newly developed “LR Independent Format” makes the GS-TD1 the world’s first consumer-oriented camcorder capable of 3D shooting in Full HD. JVC’s new camcorder offers other shooting modes as well, including the widely used “Side-by-Side Format” for AVCHD (3D) and conventional AVCHD (2D) shooting.
The camcorder uses a JVC 3D Twin HD GT Lens that sets a new standard in high-resolution lenses with extra-low-dispersion glass for crisp, high-contrast images, as well as multiple aspherical lenses for fine image reproduction. The GS-TD1 also features round iris diaphragms that enable beautiful bokeh effect (background blurring) shooting of video and stills alike.
LAS VEGAS, January 6, 2011 ? JVC today announced a new HD Everio camcorder line that offers a range of sophisticated features to deliver top-quality high definition video and unprecedented ease-of-use. The new line includes technologies that deliver outstanding low light performance, superior image stabilization and advanced scene analysis for optimum image quality. Other features found on most models include 40x optical zoom and touch panel LCD screens. What’s more, the line’s top model offers on-the-fly 2D-to-3D conversion for 3D viewing on the camcorder’s LCD screen or any compatible TV.
“This is our most advanced HD Everio line ever and clearly demonstrates that not all Full HD camcorders are created equal,” said Dave Owen, Vice President, Consumer Video Division, JVC U.S.A. “Looking back at 35mm film cameras, if you had a single lens reflex model and a snapshot camera both using identical film and capable of the same resolution, all would agree that the SLR would produce a better quality image. Similarly, Full HD is merely a measure of resolution. Quality differences among Full HD camcorders result from the camcorders’ optics and image sensors, which generate each pixel that creates the image. It’s these components that set our new HD Everio line apart from other Full HD cams.”
WAYNE, NJ, August 24, 2010 ?Two JVC pocket cameras announced today bring a new level of fun and ease-of-use to making and sharing videos and photos. The new PICSIO pocket cameras, the GC-WP10 and GC-FM2, both feature Full HD video, excellent low-light performance, a three-inch touch screen for easy operation and playback viewing, and compatibility with Eye-Fi cards for Wi-Fi connectivity. And for the ultimate in versatility, the PICSIO GC-WP10 is waterproof.
To produce stunning photos, PICSIO’s CMOS image sensor captures stills at up to five-megapixel native resolution without interpolation. It also records up to 1920 x 1080p/30 fps Full HD video with image stabilization for enjoyment on an HDTV via the camera’s HDMI output. Users can select from four different recording resolutions: Full HD 1080 (1920 x 1080/30p), HD 720 (1280 x 720/60p), iFrame (960 x 540/30p) and Quarter High Definition (960 x 540/30p). The new PICSIO cameras also offer time-lapse recording, which reduces hours-long segments to mere seconds.
The top model in the HD Everio line, the GZ-HM1, recently received top honors in a prestigious worldwide photo and imaging awards program. The GZ-HM1 was named the Best Expert Camcorder in the Technical Image Press Association’s (TIPA) TIPA Awards. Here’s the press release issued by JVC in Japan.
