JVC GZ-TD1 Full HD 3D Camcorder At CES 2011
JVC has introduced the JVC GZ-TD1 Full HD 3D camcorder at CES 2011, which is claimed to be the world’s first consumer camcorder to offer 3D recording in Full HD quality. The JVC GZ-TD1 uses a new JVC-developed high-speed processor that can produce two simultaneous Full HD images. This 3D Full HD camcorder also features two camera lenses and two 3.32-megapixel CMOS sensors to capture three-dimensional images. JVC’s new high-speed imaging engine 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 also provides other shooting modes as well, including the widely used “Side-by-Side Format” for AVCHD (3D) and conventional AVCHD (2D) shooting.
Additional features include a 3D optical 5x zoom, Optical Axis Automatic Stabilization System for disparity control to give depth to 3D images, JVC’s BIPHONIC technology for dynamic 3D sound and Automatic Parallax Adjustment to optimize the 3D-video comfort zone. The JVC GS-TD1 also features a 3.5-inch 3D touchpanel LCD monitor that displays 3D images without any need for 3D glasses. The JVC GZ-TD1 Full HD 3D camcorder will be available in March 2011 for $1,999.95 a pop. [JVC]
