JVC Unveils First Consumer Camcorder With Full HD 3D

JVC is expanding its lineup of HD Everio camcorders with the addition of the GS-TD1 - the world's first consumer camcorder to offer full-fledged 3D recording in Full HD thanks to a twin-lens structure.
A second model, the GZ-HM960, provides enjoyment of 3D images using a special 2D-to-3D conversion function. The GS-TD1 will be launching in March and GZ-HM960 in February 2011.
The new GS-TD1 uses two camera lenses and two 3.32 megapixel CMOS sensors - one for each lens - to capture three-dimensionals images much the same way that human eyes work. JVC's new high-speed imaging engine FALCONBRID simultaneously processes the two Full HD images - left and right images at 1920 x 1080i - within that single chip.
The newly developed LR Independent Format makes the GS-TD1 the world's first consumer-oriented camcorder capable of 3D shooting in Full HD. JVC's new camcorder offers other shooting modes as well, including the widely used Side-by-Side Format for AVCHD (3D) and conventional AVCHD (2D) shooting.
The camcorder uses JVC 3D Twin HD GT Lens sets a new standard in high-resolution lenses with its extra-low-dispersion glass for crisp, high-contrast images, as well as multiple aspherical lenses for fine image reproduction. The GS-TD1 also features circular iris diaphragms that enable beautiful bokeh effect (background blurring) shooting of video and stills alike.
Additional highlights include 3D Optical 5x Zoom, Optical Axis Automatic Stabilisation System for disparity control to give depth to 3D images, JVC's BIPHONIC technology for dynamic 3D sound and Automatic Parallax Adjustment to optimise the 3D-video comfort zone.
There is nothing difficult about using the GS-TD1, which operates like other consumer-friendly camcorders from JVC. A 3.5" 3D Touch Panel LCD Monitor displays 3D images without any need for 3D glasses, making it easy to check 3D images while shooting and watch 3D playback in the field.
JVC's other new HD Everio with 3D capabilities is the GZ-HM960 camcorder similar to other HD Everio models in size and features; the GZ-HM960 is distinguished by its handy 2D-to-3D output function, which turns any 2D footage into 3D. Output can be viewed without glasses on the camera's 3.5-inch 3D LCD monitor or by connecting the model to an external 3D monitor. Bluetooth wireless technology enables integration with other devices, such as smartphones to synch videos and photos with Google Maps.
The GS-TD1 and GZ-HM960 both use Everio MediaBrowser software (for Windows) for full management, editing and sharing of content. In addition to full-fledged video and still image editing, files can be uploaded effortlessly to social media sites such as YouTube or Facebook. The software provided with GS-TD1 allows 3D video to be shared with YouTube.
