PMA 2010 Report
JVC announces the launch of the new GZ-HM1 HD Everio camera offering a full slate of technologies to optimize picture quality. The JVC GZ-HM1 offers improvements in three key areas - low light performance, camera-shake compensation and digital still quality. As a result, the JVC Everio GZ-HM1 is ideal for high-end video enthusiasts and semi-professionals. In the area of low light performance, the JVC GZ-HM1 camcorder 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.
JVC announced a new dual-use camera that shoots high definition video and high resolution digital still images. The new hybrid Everio GZ-X900, or Everio X, is a small, light, all-in-one camera that offers the powerful shooting combination of Full HD video and nine -megapixel still photos, plus creative shooting functions such as slow motion video and high speed “motor drive” still photography. Small enough to easily slip into a pocket or purse, Everio X Hybrid Camera weighs just 0.66 pounds (including the internal battery and a memory card) and measures 2.6 inches tall, 4.88 inches long and just 1.46 inches wide.
The 2009 line of JVC Everio camcorders offers innovations in video sharing, dual storage memory models and hi-def camcorders no larger than their diminutive standard definition counterparts. For 2009, what the JVC Everio camcorder line offers is choice - in storage medium, color and sharing. The new JVC camcorders includes hard disk drive (HDD) models, memory camcorders, and for the first time dual memory camcorder models, including standard and high definition dual SD memory card camcorders, the world’s first dual card slot models. There’s also a standard definition camcorder that combines SD card recording with internal flash memory.
