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.

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.

NEW FLAGSHIP JVC EVERIO HD CAMERA DELIVERS ENHANCED PERFORMANCE FOR VIDEO ENTHUSIASTS

New GZ-HM1 Full HD camera boasts gains in low light performance, image stabilization and still image quality.

LAS VEGAS, January 7, 2010 ? JVC announces the launch of the new GZ-HM1 HD Everio camera offering a full slate of technologies to optimize picture quality.  The GZ-HM1 offers improvements in three key areas — low light performance, camera-shake compensation and digital still quality.  As a result, the GZ-HM1 is ideal for high-end video enthusiasts and semi-professionals.

Everio GZ-HM1

Everio 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.  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.

JVC To Launch High Definition LED Billboard In Times Square

JVC To Launch High Definition LED Billboard In Times Square

New widescreen billboard is Times Square’s first true 720p hi-def screen.

WAYNE, NJ, November 20, 2008 – Early next month JVC will unveil a new LED billboard that will be the first true 720p high definition display in New York’s Times Square.

The focal point of the new billboard will be a high definition LED screen, but it will also feature a pair of LED tickers with animated programming synchronized among all three LED displays, plus large “JVC” letters illuminated by neon. The new LED billboard will be among the most impactful in Times Square thanks to the combination of its advanced technology and its location – just one story above ground level at Broadway and 43rd. Its close proximity to street level will ensure that Times Square visitors will fully appreciate the display’s crisp, high definition images, the brightness of its 1.2 million LEDs and the brilliance of the nine-foot red neon JVC letters atop the display. JVC, which has maintained a continuous presence in Times Square since 1979, will activate the new billboard on December 2nd.

With a resolution of 1280 x 720, a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio and 60 frames per second animated content, the new JVC billboard will be the first in Times Square that meets all the criteria for a true 720p high definition display. To further ensure a crisp image, pixel pitch – or the space between pixels of the same color – is a mere 8mm.

The main high definition LED screen will measure 19’ x 34’, and features a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. A new 71-foot LED ticker will run beneath the display and curve below the base of the JVC globe, which is encircled by its own 45-foot LED ticker. The JVC globe itself, a widely recognized fixture at the northeast corner of Broadway and 43rd Street since 1999, will be refurbished using high density fluorescent paint.

“Times Square might have changed a bit in the 30 years that JVC has had a presence there, but it continues to live up to its nickname as the ‘crossroads of the world’,” said Karl Bearnarth, senior vice president, marketing, JVC Company of America. “For many of the millions of visitors that pass through the area every year, the bright lights and billboards are a main attraction. We think our new high definition billboard will create plenty of excitement thanks to its stunning resolution and our creative use of all three LED display areas.”

The new JVC billboard, called a “spectacular” in industry parlance, was created for JVC by Clear Channel Spectacolor, with the LED displays provided by D3 LED.

“In rebranding their long standing Times Square display, JVC employed the same qualities that have made it a leader in the development of sophisticated audio and video products – innovation, quality and a commitment to the consumer experience,” said Harry Coghlan, president and general manager, Clear Channel Spectacolor. “The JVC display is a true ‘spectacular’ in that it delivers grand brand heraldry, an iconic centerpiece with the JVC Globe, state-of-the-art technology, and engaging viewer content. In terms of Times Square displays the JVC display is ‘The Perfect Experience’.”

JVC will showcase seasonal, promotional and product-related original content on the new billboard. To kick off the introduction, JVC will begin showcasing content related to an upcoming promotion, along with promotional messages for its camcorders, high definition displays and car entertainment products.

JVC UNVEILS 10 MEGAPIXEL ULTRA HIGH DEFINITION PROJECTOR

JVC UNVEILS 10 MEGAPIXEL ULTRA HIGH DEFINITION PROJECTOR
4K2K D-ILA Projector Provides Four Times the Resolution of Full HD

Denver, CO (September 3, 2008) – JVC unveils the world’s smallest 4K2K ultra high definition projector, the DLA-SH4K. Based on the company’s new proprietary 1.27-inch 10 megapixel D-ILA devices, the DLA-SH4K projects images at greater than 4 times the resolution and clarity of the industry’s latest full high definition projectors. The higher resolution will bring a new level of reality to aircraft simulators, medical analysis, 3D display, command and control, museums, theme parks, and ultra high-end home theaters.

The DLA-SH4K will be unveiled at CEDIA September 3 – 6, 2008 and will be on display throughout the show in the JVC Theater located at The Denver Center for the Performing Arts next to the Denver convention center.

The projector’s chassis achieves a remarkable 65% reduction in size compared with conventional projectors in its class. This was achieved in part by using JVC’s latest 1.27-inch Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier (D-ILA) devices and a new optical system. D-ILA is a proprietary form of Liquid Crystal on Silicone (LCOS), a reflective technology that offers far greater pixel density than competing devices.

New JVC HD Everio Line Includes World’s First 50-Hour AVCHD Camera And Dual-Format Models

New JVC HD Everio Line Includes World’s First 50-Hour AVCHD Camera And Dual-Format Models

 

Two new HD models offer both AVCHD and MPEG-2 recording

WAYNE, NJ, June 16, 2008 – JVC has added three new high definition cameras to its HD Everio line, including a pair of dual-format models, one of which records up to 50 hours of AVCHD Full HD video.

Two new models, the GZ-HD40 and GZ-HD30, are the world’s first AVCHD / MPEG-2 dual-format cameras, allowing access to the superior long time compression afforded by AVCHD, as well as MPEG-2’s superior editing and post-production environment. Both offer 1920 x 1080 Full HD recording in both formats to a 120GB (GZ-HD40) or 80GB (GZ-HD30) internal hard disk drive. The third new model, the GZ-HD10, offers 1440 x 1080 recording in the AVCHD format to a 40GB hard drive.

Technologies behind the scenes include new CMOS imaging chips with interpolation technology, the HD Gigabrid Duo chip that includes codecs for AVCHD in all cameras and MPEG-2 in the GZ-HD40 and GZ-HD30 as well as noise reduction technology, and 1920 x 1080/60P output for all cameras via HDMI™ (V.1.3 with x.v.Color). Ease of use innovations include Intelligent Grouping, which sorts and groups together similar themed scenes for easier access, and Digest Playback, which creates a video montage of scenes, much like a “coming attractions” clip, when they’re burned to a DVD.

JVC designed the GZ-HD30 to meet the needs of a broad segment of people who shoot video, including family users. More compact than the GZ-HD40, it offers all of the performance and nearly all of the features of that model, except it has a slim 80GB internal hard disk for a maximum 33 hours of Full HD recording, and does not come with a docking station. As of June 2008, it is the world’s smallest Full HD camera with 1.8” HDD.

JVC provided the GZ-HD40 with a 120GB hard disk drive for up to 50 hours of AVCHD Full HD video recording, and a docking station to meet the requirements of the prosumer or high-end enthusiast.

JVC designed the small sized HD Everio GZ-HD10 thinking of the needs of budget-conscious users, yet it offers a high quality KONICA MINOLTA HD LENS and a 40GB hard disk that provides up to 16 hours of high-definition recording. The GZ-HD10’s 1440×1080 AVCHD recordings are also up converted for playback at 1920 x 1080/60P via HDMI.

All three of the new HD Everio hybrid cameras can connect to the optionally available CU-VD50 Everio SHARE STATION with stand alone playback. The new HD Everios can also connect to the JVC CU-VD3 SHARE STATION to offer an even more cost-efficient archiving and playback solution. The combinations offer the world’s first PC-less solution for AVCHD and MPEG-2 burning and playback, with AVCHD DVD discs that can be shared with commonly available AVCHD compatible Blu-Ray players.

1920 x 1080 Full HD Recording
The GZ-HD40 and GZ-HD30 both have three AVCHD recording modes that all record Full HD 1920 x 1080 video. The only difference among modes is the bit rate, and while using the highest bit rate yields

the highest quality results, the image quality is remarkable even using the lowest bit rate EP mode. And since 1920 x 1080 is truly native HDTV resolution, it requires no conversion on the part of the display device to show high definition images.

The GZ-HD40 and GZ-HD30 also have the FHD mode for recording Full HD 1920 x 1080 MPEG-2 Transport Stream video with MPEG-1 Layer 2 audio. The GZ-HD10 records solely in 1440 x 1080 AVCHD format.

*For HDV compatible stream via i.LINK
Continuous shooting time and typical shooting time are approximate. To record video, a microSDHC card with Class 4 or higher performance is required. microSD memory cards (256MB to 2GB) and microSDHC memory cards (4GB and 8GB) have been tested for the following brands: Panasonic, Toshiba, SanDisk, ATP. Note that using other media may result in recording failure or data loss.

New CMOS Chips with Interpolation Technology
The image sensors used in the new HD Everio line are newly developed small size but high resolution 1/3” and 1/4.5” CMOS chips. This CMOS uses proprietary interpolation technology based on what JVC developed for its 3CCD cameras. This algorithm makes it possible to generate virtual pixel data from the red, green and blue physical pixels, thereby providing image information that actually surpasses what’s required for 1920 x 1080 Full HD imaging, or for 1440 x 1080 imaging in the GZ-HD10.

HD Gigabrid Duo Engine
JVC’s HD Gigabrid video engine, which processes in full 1920 x 1080 progressive video, was the result of years of experience in signal-processing technology, and uses five digital noise-reduction algorithms as well as signal processing to improve horizontal scan resolution by approximately 20 percent over JVC’s previous interlace technology, for an extremely clear and sharp image.

New this year with the HD Gigabrid Duo engine is its further advanced integration, adding the AVCHD codec (GZ-HD40/30/10), and incorporating all functions of the previous HD Gigabrid engine (including MPEG-2 codec for GZ-HD40/30), as well as the USB Host controller function for use with an Everio SHARE STATION.

1080p 60 Frame per second Progressive Output Function
Enabling output of a 1080p 60 fps progressive signal on all three models allows recordings to be enjoyed on high-end displays. Using the same high power Genessa technology as in JVC advanced displays, conversion to 1920 x 1080p at 60 fps provides seamless natural video, free of motion judder during fast action activities, jaggy lines on angles, and moiré patterns on fine detail when zooming. 1920 x 1080 HD discs played back from CU-VD50 SHARE STATION or via the camera from CU-VD3 SHARE STATION are also converted to 60 fps progressive.

HDMI™ (V.1.3. with x.v.Color™)
The new JVC HD Everio hybrid cameras record using x.v.Color™ technology. The universal standard xvYCC, known as x.v.Color, provides more accurate color reproduction with more detail and shades that look more natural to the human eye. It can display 100 percent of the colors that the human eye is capable of perceiving, whereas the traditional sRGB system can only display approximately 55 percent. The difference in color reproduction performance is especially noticeable in greens and yellows. These new HD Everio hybrid cameras output to televisions directly using HDMI™ (V.1.3. with x.v.Color).

Extremely Quick Response, Designed for High Quality Shooting
JVC’s new HD Everio models minimize the risk of missing an important shot with faster response time for many operations. For instance, the time lag from pressing the trigger to the start of recording is only 0.08 seconds (trigger sound set to off). That is nearly instantaneous, and a great improvement over the more common 0.6 second delay. Likewise, the time it takes to power-on the unit has been reduced to 0.6 seconds, whereas competitive models may take over 1.5 seconds. And to play footage, it takes only 3.5 seconds to display the playback picture, which is about half the time required for other manufacturers’ products. These improvements can mean the difference between capturing a crucial shot or missing it.

In addition, JVC HD Everio hybrid cameras include other functions that enhance convenience and quality: * Hybrid HDD and MicroSD Recording;

  • Auto Light;
  • Focus Assist and Manual settings;
  • Simultaneous to Video Progressive Still Shooting;
  • Quick power off;
  • 2.8”/ (2.7” for GZ-HD10) Clear wide LCD with Auto Backlight Brightness;
  • Mic input and Accessory Shoe;
  • Direct Backup button;
  • In Camera File Editing (AVCHD).

Innovations in Ease of Use
JVC has equipped its new HD Everio models with new functions to enhance usability. First is the “Intelligent Grouping” function that at the touch of a button rapidly sorts through and categorizes the recordings stored on the camera’s hard disk into different groups. Up to 1,000 scenes can be grouped in three seconds or less. With scenes categorized, users will have faster and easier access to desired scenes, a real convenience as the hard drive fills up.

 

As an extension of this technology, “Digest Playback” automatically generates a video montage of just the highlight scenes when HD Everio recordings are copied to a DVD. This digest version of the disc contents, looking much like a coming-attractions clip, will help the viewer get a general idea of what the disc is about, saving precious time.

PC-less Archiving Using Exclusive DVD Burners
By connecting the GZ-HD40/HD30/HD10 directly to an optional CU-VD50 or CU-VD3 HD Everio SHARE STATION via USB, the user can burn 12cm AVCHD discs from all cameras, or MPEG-2 data discs from the GZ-HD40 and 30 to make backups and permanent archives of selected scenes in any desired order with just a few simple steps.

There are several options for selecting clips to be burned to disc — all clips, manually specified clips, clip files not yet copied, by date, video playlists created in-camera and comprised of multiple user-selected clips, or by event type for those clips that have been tagged with an icon representing an event category (e.g. birthday, baby, graduation, vacation, etc.).

Created AVCHD discs can be played on AVCHD compatible Blu-ray players. The CU-VD50 can also be used as an external DVD drive/burner when connected to a PC. The CU-VD50 plays back on a TV via HDMI in 1920 x 1080 60p and with x.v.Color, analog component and as well in standard definition video. The slim CU-VD3 offers the same burning features, but with playback via the camera.

Full Complement of Interfaces
All three models are equipped with USB2.0 and HDMI digital interfaces on the camera. The Docking Station supplied with the GZ-HD40 is equipped with USB2.0 and i.LINK (IEEE 1394).

USB is primarily for file saving, HDMI for digital viewing on large screen displays, and i.LINK streams high definition video in full resolution or the 1440CBR mode. High definition video streamed by i.LINK in the 1440CBR mode is HDV-compatible and allows footage to be edited using HDV-compatible software (functionality might be limited with some applications). HD recorded material is down-converted for output in standard definition via the analog component/ composite output.

High Value Software Supplied
For editing and archiving via PC, the new HD Everio models come with the CyberLink BD Solution software suite for Windows. This includes “PowerDirector™ 6 NE” for HD video editing, “PowerProducer™ 4 NE” for authoring high definition Blu-ray discs, AVCHD discs and DVD-Video discs, “PowerCinema™ NE for Everio” for HD file management and playback, and “PowerDVD™ 7 NE” for playback of AVCHD discs.

The GZ-HD40/HD30 also come with a plug-in that allows HD Everio’s MPEG-2 files to be used with Apple iMovie HD 6 and Final Cut Pro 5 or 6 video software for the Macintosh. For all cameras, AVCHD files can be used with Apple’s AVCHD applicable software without a plug-in for the Macintosh.

JVC EVERIO HARD DISK CAMERAS OFFER ENHANCED USABILITY IN A COLORFUL LINEUP FOR 2008

JVC EVERIO HARD DISK CAMERAS OFFER ENHANCED USABILITY IN A COLORFUL LINEUP FOR 2008

New line features new touch-sensitive scroll bar, super-slim design and a selection of elegant body colors.

LAS VEGAS, January 6, 2008 – A new line of JVC Everio Hard Disk Cameras features a new, super-slim design that makes them the world’s smallest hard drive cameras* on the market. The new Everio line, unveiled today, also offers new functions that make operation simpler and more intuitive, and models available in four different colors.

For 2008, there will be Everio hybrid cameras available in sapphire blue, ruby red, diamond silver and onyx black, allowing consumers to choose a model based on features, budget and style. Also new is Laser Touch, a touch-sensitive scroll bar that simplifies operation, both 30GB and 60GB models, and a new design that’s some 20 percent smaller than last year’s entry-level model. In addition, a higher-end model offers higher-resolution digital stills by virtue of a 7 Megapixel CCD, making it unnecessary for people to carry both a camcorder and a digital still camera. This model is the first in the world to have an embedded 1.3” hard disk drive (30GB), which allowed JVC to integrate a large 1/2.5” CCD and its accompanying large optical lens section, without getting bulky — thereby providing the quality benefits of a large lens while maintaining a small body and offering large capacity.

A new innovation found on all 2008 Everio G Series models is the Laser Touch Operation user interface – a touch-sensitive illuminated scroll bar just to the left of the LCD monitor screen. Simply moving a finger up or down along the scroll bar allows the user to browse through and select video clips to view or edit, and operate menus for camera set-up. The 2.7-inch widescreen LCD’s high-resolution GUI is linked to Laser Touch movements, but the feature eliminates the risk of smudging or damaging the screen that users face with a touch-screen interface. And to provide better LCD visibility when shooting outdoors, the display features a new Auto LCD Backlight Control.

The Everio G Series offers a triple advantage of easy shooting, easy editing and easy archiving. Archiving is made especially convenient with the optional SHARE STATION DVD burner, which for 2008 sports a new dramatically slimmed-down design that makes it much easier to carry along when traveling. One touch of the camera’s Direct DVD button transfers footage from the camera to a SHARE STATION DVD burner or PC to automatically burn a DVD containing all the footage, selected footage or new footage only. The Direct Back-up button backs-up recordings to a PC through a USB 2.0 high-speed interface to free-up camera hard disk space. A DV (IEEE 1394: i.LINK, firewire) output is on the Everio dock to allow easy dubbing to DVD or hard drive recorders, and enables footage to be imported using many third-party NLE (non-linear editing) applications. But some basic editing can be done without a PC. Scene playback order can be rearranged within the camera, and 20 preset title screens can be inserted into the footage while viewing it or burning it to a DVD. These colorfully designed title screens are linked to the menu language setting, so they can be displayed in English, Spanish or French.

Picture quality is maximized by the use of an F1.8 KONICA MINOLTA LENS on most 2008 Everio G Series hybrid cameras. This high-performance lens, developed by the renowned camera specialist, captures precise, bright images, yet is small enough to have allowed JVC to develop a compact camera. Also adding to the picture quality is JVC’s proprietary Gigabrid Engine that integrates various noise reduction technologies to improve the signal-to-noise ratio by about 30 percent (3dB) over previous models without that technology.

Comprising the five-model Everio G lineup for 2008 are four 680K-pixel models and one 7 Megapixel model. The four 680K-pixel hybrid cameras include two 30GB models and two 60GB models. The 30GB GZ-MG330 offers a 35x optical zoom, integrated Auto Illumi. Light and is available in three “gem” colors: sapphire blue, ruby red or diamond silver. The GZ-MG335 (available in diamond silver) offers the same functions as the MG330 and comes with an Everio Dock for easy connection and charging. The GZ-MG360 (onyx black) doubles storage capacity with its 60GB internal hard disk drive. The GZ-MG365 (onyx black) offers the same functions as the MG360 and comes with the Everio Dock. The 30GB models and the 60GB model each weigh just 0.8 lbs. (360g), including the battery.

Capping the 2008 Everio G lineup is the 30GB GZ-MG730, which features a higher-performance camera section with a 1/2.5-inch 7.38 Megapixel CCD with Primary Color Filter. It features a more rounded design that shows off the F3.5 KONICA MINOLTA LENS. With the ability to shoot high resolution digital stills up to 3072 x 1728 (16:9 mode) or 3072 x 2304 (4:3 mode) in size, the GZ-MG730 is an ideal dual-use camera. Serious enthusiasts will enjoy the additional pro-style shooting features, including Auto Flash, Program AE dial with Shutter Priority and Aperture Priority, Auto Exposure Bracketing, Backlight and Spotlight compensation, Natural and Vivid color settings, and Histogram Display.

All models also feature PictBridge compatibility for direct printing, microSD card slot and USB mass storage compatibility, and come with a convenient remote control. The JVC Data Battery allows remaining recording time to be displayed on the LCD even when the camera is off. Power-Linked Operation powers up the camera and engages the standby mode simply by opening the LCD, while Quick Restart starts recording just about one second after the LCD is re-opened.

For use with PCs, Everio G Series hybrid cameras come with CyberLink’s PowerProducer™ 3 NE for authoring DVDs, PowerDirector™ 5 NE Express for editing, and PowerCinema™ NE for Everio to browse camera contents and enable the Direct DVD/Direct Backup functions. Macintosh users will have an easy time importing Everio’s video files using iMovie ’08.

An enhanced lineup of optional accessories also serves to increase the appeal of the Everio G Series. Among the most noteworthy is the CU-VD3, the super-slim Everio SHARE STATION DVD burner, which can be placed upright or horizontally. For the aquatically adventurous, there is the WR-MG100 Marine Case that allows waterproof operation of Everio hybrid cameras down to 131ft/40m under water. Colorful hybrid cameras deserve colorful carrying bags, and the compact CB-VM60 which carries the Everio hybrid camera with attached battery is available in black, blue and red. The larger CB-VM70 offered in black is also available to carry a full system. And a nice way to kick-start a wonderful relationship with Everio is the VU-VM90K Starter Kit, which includes the CB-VM70 carrying bag and one BN-VF808 data battery.

NEW JVC HD EVERIO HYBRID CAMERAS OFFER HIGH-PERFORMANCE, COMPACT DESIGN & 1080p60 HDMI OUTPUT

NEW JVC HD EVERIO HYBRID CAMERAS OFFER HIGH-PERFORMANCE, COMPACT DESIGN & 1080p60 HDMI OUTPUT

New GZ-HD6 and GZ-HD5 are the world’s first 1920 x 1080 Full HD hard disk cameras with 1080 progressive 60fps HDMI output for Full HD 60p displays.

LAS VEGAS, January 30, 2008 – JVC today announced a pair of new high definition Everio hard disk cameras that offer industry-leading picture quality in a dramatically reduced size. The new JVC GZ-HD6 and GZ-HD5 HD hybrid cameras are 45 percent smaller than JVC’s previous top-end HD hybrid camera, the GZ-HD7, without any sacrifice in image quality.

To provide the best possible quality, both new HD hybrid cameras feature a FUJINON HD lens, a progressive scan 3CCD imaging system and JVC’s HD Gigabrid engine that delivers 1920 x 1080 Full HD recording. In addition, they offer 1080p 60 frame per second output via HDMI 1.3 with x.v.Color™. Collectively these technologies capture and maintain optimum image quality for videos and stills through every stage, from the lens on through to recording. Both cameras offer a long recording time in 1920 x 1080 Full HD – 10 hours for the 120GB GZ-HD6 and five hours for the 60GB GZ-HD5. They record up to 24 (GZ-HD6) or 12 (GZ-HD5) hours in the 1440 LP mode. Recordings are stored on either the built-in hard disk drive or on an inserted microSD card (optional). Both models also offer a microphone input and a wide range of manual controls. The black GZ-HD6 also features a lens hood and headphone jack. The smaller silver GZ-HD5 weighs just 1 lb 3.9 oz with battery.

The GZ-HD6/HD5 also come supplied with a full set of Windows® applications for editing and authoring to DVD and Blu-ray disc, as well as plug-in software to facilitate data import into various Macintosh applications. And to make it easy to share and archive recordings, JVC will continue to offer the CU-VD40 Everio SHARE STATION for HD which enables one-button burning of video data to DVD.

FUJINON HD Lens
The HD Everio GZ-HD6/HD5 feature an F1.8-F1.9 10x zoom lens that offers nearly the same brightness throughout its 39.5~395 35mm equivalent (f=3.3mm~33mm) zoom range by virtue of its three aspherical lens elements, one made of indexed glass. In addition, the lens surface is coated with a new Electronic Beam Coating (EBC) that greatly reduces degradation caused by light reflecting off the lens surfaces, leading to greater light transmission and reduced flaring and ghosting. This HD lens was specifically designed by FUJINON, a leader in the professional camera lens market for HD moving images, in conjunction with JVC engineers to offer optimal characteristics for the camera’s Progressive Scan 3CCD system. In addition, to ensure precise prism/CCD registration, JVC has incorporated FUJINON mounting technology used in professional camcorders.

Progressive Scan 3CCD System
For bright, realistic colors the HD Everio hybrid cameras use three 1/5-inch CCDs – one each for the primary colors red, green and blue, incorporating 16:9 progressive scan CCDs. This voluminous raw information is then processed using pixel shift technology to essentially quadruple the pixel count to create an even more detailed image, providing 2.27 Megapixels total and 2.14 Megapixels effective resolution.

1920 x 1080 Full HD Recording
Using the highest quality FHD recording mode, the user can record approximately 10 hours (120GB model) or five hours (60GB model) of full HD 1920 x 1080 MPEG2 Transport Stream video with MPEG 1 Layer 2 audio. This is truly native HDTV resolution that requires no conversion on the part of the display device to show high definition images.

Also, because it records in the MPEG2 Transport Stream video format, HD Everio recordings can be archived onto Blu-ray discs using provided software and a high definition Blu-ray recorder.

HD Gigabrid Engine
  JVC’s new HD Gigabrid video engine, which processes in full 1920 x 1080 progressive video, is the result of years of experience in signal-processing technology, and uses five digital noise-reduction algorithms as well as signal processing to improve vertical scan resolution by approximately 30 percent over JVC’s previous interlace technology for an extremely clear and sharp image.

1080p 60 Frame per second Progressive Output Function
By enabling output of a 1080p 60 fps progressive signal, this function enables HD Everio’s recordings to be enjoyed on high-end displays. Using the same high-power Genessa technology as in JVC’s advanced displays, conversion to 1920 x 1080p at 60 fps provides seamless natural video, free of motion judder during fast action, jaggy lines on angles, and moiré patterns on fine detail when zooming. 1920 x 1080 HD discs played back via the camera from the CU-VD40 SHARESTATION are also converted to 60 fps progressive.

HDMI™ (V.1.3. with x.v.Color™)*
JVC HD Everio Hybrid Cameras record using x.v.Color™ technology. In this universal standard x.v.Ycc, known as x.v.Color™, provides more accurate color reproduction with more detail and shades that looks more natural to the human eye. It can display 100 percent of the colors that the human eye is capable of perceiving, whereas the traditional sRGB system can display only approximately 55 percent. The difference in color reproduction performance is especially noticeable in greens and yellows. These new HD Everio Hybrid Cameras output to televisions directly using HDMI™ (V.1.3. with x.v.Color™).

Optical Image Stabilization (OIS)
To preserve the Full HD quality, the HD Everios feature optical image stabilization, avoiding the signal degradation caused by electronic image stabilization, which might be particularly noticeable in HD footage. In short, HD Everio matches its high-definition recording capability with a proven HD lens section that has proven its value in the broadcast industry.

Various Shooting Assist Functions
While HD Everio hybrid cameras offer fully automated operation for point-and-shoot simplicity, they also offer a wide range of manual controls. These include a manual focus ring, manual white balance, exposure control, shutter priority mode, aperture priority mode and sharpness control. In addition, a Focus Assist function displays the edge of the in-focus elements in color while the rest of the image is black-and-white, making it easy to check which image elements are in focus. And a Zebra function displays a striped pattern across highlight areas on the image in the LCD monitor, making it easier to manually set the exposure.

High Capacity HDD (Hard Disk Drive)
Depending on the model, HD Everio hybrid cameras feature either an embedded 120GB or 60GB hard disk drive, allowing upwards of 10 hours (120GB model) or five hours (60 GB model) recording at the highest quality FHD mode. In addition to this mode, three more are offered to let the user choose the appropriate mode for any situation. There is an SP mode with a resolution of 1440 x 1080 and maximum bit rate of 22 Mbps., an LP mode offering the same resolution but at a slower maximum bit rate of 15 Mbps., and an HDV-i.LINK streaming compatible constant bit rate 1440 CBR mode.

PC-less Archiving using Exclusive DVD Burner
By connecting the GZ-HD6/HD5 directly to the optional CU-VD40 HD Everio SHARE STATION via USB, the user can burn HD 12cm DVD discs to make backups and permanent archives of selected scenes in any desired order with just a few simple steps. There are several options for selecting clips to be burned to disc — all clips, manual selection of specific clips, clip files not yet copied, by date, video playlists created in-camera and comprised of multiple user-selected clips, or by event type for those clips that have been tagged with an icon representing an event category (e.g. birthday, baby, graduation, vacation, etc.).

Full Complement of Interfaces
HD Everio hybrid cameras are equipped with three digital interfaces – USB, HDMI and Firewire/i.LINK. USB is primarily for file saving, HDMI for digital viewing on large screen displays, and Firewire/i.LINK streams high definition video in full resolution or the 1440CBR mode. High definition video streamed by Firewire/i.LINK in the 1440CBR mode is HDV-compatible and allows footage to be edited using HDV-compatible software (functionality might be limited with some applications). HD recorded material is down-converted for output in DV over Firewire/i.LINK, or in standard definition via the analog component/ S-Video/ composite output.

High Value Software Supplied
For editing and archiving via PC, the HD Everio comes with the CyberLink BD Solution software suite for Windows. This includes PowerDirector for HD video editing, PowerProducer for authoring high definition Blu-ray discs and DVD-Video discs, and PowerCinema for HD file management and playback. Also included is a plug-in that works up to 1920 x 1080i with Apple iMovie HD and Final Cut Pro video software for the Macintosh.

The JVC GZ-HD6, offered in black, and the GZ-HD5, offered in silver, will be available in March for $1,399.99 and $1,199.99, respectively.
