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.

New JVC Video/Still Hybrid Camera Offers Pro-Level Performance and Features

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.

JVC GC-PX10

JVC GC-PX10

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.

Reviewer David Elrich scored it an 8 out of 10, and was very impressed with the camera’s image quality — “The  movies were top notch with trees showing excellent, deep greens and flowers just the right amount of yellow, pink and red.

Highs:

  • Outstanding video quality
  • Built-in 64GB flash memory

  • Superior image stabilization system
  • Good low-light shooting

Lows:

FLAGSHIP AMONG JVC HD EVERIO CAMERAS NOW AVAILABLE

WAYNE, NJ, April 6, 2010 ? A new top-end JVC HD Everio video camera is now available, JVC announced today. The new GZ-HM1 HD Everio offers a full slate of technologies to optimize picture quality and an array of manual controls for creative flexibility. The GZ-HM1 offers performance improvements in three key areas — low light performance, camera-shake compensation and digital still quality. As a result, the GZ-HM1, which offers 64GB of internal storage and an SD/SDHC card slot, is the ideal camera for video enthusiasts and semi-professionals.

JVC GZ-HM1

JVC GZ-HM1

In the area of low light performance, the GZ-HM1 provides superior results thanks to a new CMOS sensor that boosts sensitivity to four Lux (compared to nine Lux for the previous GZ-HM400) for brilliant recording of 1920 x 1080 Full HD video, with 1080/60p output through the HDMI connection. In camera shake compensation, JVC made improvements in wide angle performance, an area not typically addressed. While most stabilization efforts focus on effectiveness in high zoom ratios, camera shake also occurs at wide angle settings, especially when the camera user is moving along with the subject. In the new GZ-HM1, JVC uses prism technology to provide effective results at the wide angle end of the zoom range. And for better still image quality, the GZ-HM1 delivers real 10 megapixel stills for detailed images.
