JVC Announce New Cameras

JVC have announced that they are to ship what they describe as the "world’s first 4K camcorder" this year.
Last year at IBC the camera was only a concept model but at CES, a consumer technology trade show held in Vegas, the company announced that they hoped they would be able to start selling the new camera in March.
This comes at a time when the 4K image standard for cinema projection is 4096 x 2160 pixels. This represents four times the resolution of 2K digital cinema and High Definition images.
In the film world, smaller-grain structures enable more detailed images to be exhibited. In the move to digital, pixels replace grain as the basic elements of an image. The smaller the pixel size and the greater the number of pixels in an image frame results in the ability to display more detailed and realistic images.
It is understood that the camera, which is similar in size to GY-HM150 model, can output 4K images to a monitor or projection system.
Meanwhile JVC also announced the launch of its new Everio Camcorder line-up featuring models with built-in Wi-Fi.
The new Wi-Fi models are part of seven models in the Everio line-up that spans a wide range of needs, from point-and-shoot to full manual creativity for the serious video enthusiast.
Most notable is that key models throughout the line-up are equipped with a new Wi-Fi wireless feature, providing unique functions such as Live Monitoring, Auto Photo Email, Video Email and Smartphone Linking.
JVC fills the gap between traditional video cameras which offer great image quality and zoom capability with limited communication options, and smartphones which provide excellent communication with limited image capturing capability. Everio’s EX, VX and GX series models offer an advanced solution for today’s communication needs and provide new ways to bring wireless visual communication into everyday lives.
