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.

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.

First of JVC Wi-Fi Camcorders Now Available

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.

Everio GZ-EX250 Features

• Wi-Fi Wireless Functions

• Built-in Memory 16GB

• AVCHD & Standard Definition Dual Format

• Advanced Image Stabilizer (A.I.S.)

• 40x Optical Zoom (KONICA MINOLTA HD LENS)

JVC Demonstrates Live Stream Camera At CES

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.
