New JVC HD Everio Line
JVC designed the small sized HD Everio GZ-HD10 thinking of the needs of budget-conscious users, yet it offers a high quality KONICA MINOLTA HD LENS and a 40GB hard disk that provides up to 16 hours of high-definition recording. The GZ-HD10’s 1440x1080 AVCHD recordings are also up converted for playback at 1920 x 1080/60P via HDMI.
Continuous shooting time and typical shooting time are approximate. To record video, a microSDHC card with Class 4 or higher performance is required. microSD memory cards (256MB to 2GB) and microSDHC memory cards (4GB and 8GB) have been tested for the following brands: Panasonic, Toshiba, SanDisk, ATP. Note that using other media may result in recording failure or data loss.
New CMOS Chips with Interpolation Technology
The image sensors used in the new HD Everio line are newly developed small size but high resolution 1/4.5” CMOS chips. This CMOS uses proprietary interpolation technology based on what JVC developed for its 3CCD cameras. This algorithm makes it possible to generate virtual pixel data from the red, green and blue physical pixels, thereby providing image information that actually surpasses what’s required for 1440 x 1080 imaging.
HDMI (V.1.3. with x.v.Color)
The new JVC HD Everio camcorders record using x.v.Color technology. The universal standard xvYCC, known as x.v.Color, provides more accurate color reproduction with more detail and shades that look more natural to the human eye. It can display 100 percent of the colors that the human eye is capable of perceiving, whereas the traditional sRGB system can only display approximately 55 percent. The difference in color reproduction performance is especially noticeable in greens and yellows. These new HD Everio camcorders output to televisions directly using HDMI.
Extremely Quick Response, Designed for High Quality Shooting
JVC’s new HD Everio models minimize the risk of missing an important shot with faster response time for many operations. For instance, the time lag from pressing the trigger to the start of recording is only 0.08 seconds (trigger sound set to off). That is nearly instantaneous, and a great improvement over the more common 0.6 second delay. Likewise, the time it takes to power-on the unit has been reduced to 0.6 seconds, whereas competitive models may take over 1.5 seconds. And to play footage, it takes only 3.5 seconds to display the playback picture, which is about half the time required for other manufacturers’ products. These improvements can mean the difference between capturing a crucial shot or missing it.
In addition, JVC HD Everio camcorders include other functions that enhance convenience and quality: * Hybrid HDD and MicroSD Recording;
Focus Assist and Manual settings;
Simultaneous to Video Progressive Still Shooting;
Quick power off;
2.7” Clear wide LCD with Auto Backlight Brightness;
Mic input and Accessory Shoe;
Direct Backup button;
In Camera File Editing (AVCHD).
Innovations in Ease of Use
JVC has equipped its new HD Everio models with new functions to enhance usability. First is the “Intelligent Grouping” function that at the touch of a button rapidly sorts through and categorizes the recordings stored on the camcorder’s hard disk into different groups. Up to 1,000 scenes can be grouped in three seconds or less. With scenes categorized, users will have faster and easier access to desired scenes, a real convenience as the hard drive fills up.
As an extension of this technology, “Digest Playback” automatically generates a video montage of just the highlight scenes when HD Everio recordings are copied to a DVD. This digest version of the disc contents, looking much like a coming-attractions clip, will help the viewer get a general idea of what the disc is about, saving precious time.
Full Complement of Interfaces
All three models are equipped with USB2.0 and HDMI digital interfaces on the camcorder. USB is primarily for file saving, HDMI for digital viewing on large screen displays, and i.LINK streams high definition video in full resolution or the 1440CBR mode. High definition video streamed by i.LINK in the 1440CBR mode is HDV-compatible and allows footage to be edited using HDV-compatible software (functionality might be limited with some applications). HD recorded material is down-converted for output in standard definition via the analog component/ composite output.
