The two new JVC Everio camcorders, the GZ-R70 and GZ-R10, feature JVC’s Quad-Proof structure – water resistance to a depth of 5m/16.4ft, the ability to withstand a drop from 1.5m/4.9ft, as well as dust-proof and freeze-proof down to –10˚C/14˚F – packaged in a familiar camcorder form factor.

JVC Announces New XTREME XPLOSIVES Series Headphones That Deliver Hard-Hitting Bass and Distinctive Rugged Styling
LAS VEGAS, January 7, 2014 – JVC today announced a new lineup of XTREME XPLOSIVES series headphones, including white around-ear and on-ear designs, as well as inner ear models.

The popular HA-M55X and HA-S44X are now available in white, in addition to the already available black versions. These headphones assure full range sound quality through the use of extra-large neodymium driver units: 1.57” (40mm) for the on-ear HA-S44X, 1.97” (50mm) for the over-ear HA-M55X. The combination of the large driver units and the Extreme Deep Bass Ports is what gives the headphones their impressive bass performance. Click here to continue reading...

WAYNE, NJ, September 19, 2012 – JVC today announced the introduction of the HA-S400 on-ear headphones featuring 30mm neodymium driver units with carbon nanotubes for the ultimate in crisp, clear sound. Other key features include soft-cushioned ear pads for comfort and sound isolation, a compact three-way foldable structure for portability, and a lightweight design with a soft headband for comfortable extended listening. The HA-S400 is available in two colors – white or black.
Carbon nanotubes diaphragms represent a breakthrough in headphone technology as the material provides a balance of strength and flexibility that cannot be matched by diaphragms made from either metals or plastics. Paired with 30mm neodymium driver units the nanotubes diaphragms enable the HA-S400 to deliver exceptionally crisp, detailed full-range sound, particularly in the mid-high frequency range, and vivid, deep bass.
The lightweight design and soft headband make the HA-S400 ideal for extended periods of use, while the unique three-way foldable structure makes the HA-S400 compact and portable. Additionally, the on-ear design helps to effectively block out background noise while also providing a comfortable fit with the soft cushioned ear pads. Other features include 1.2m cord with gold-plated iPhone-compatible slim stereo plug.
The new HA-S400 lightweight foldable headband headphones will be available in two colors in October 2012 for $39.95.

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.
