JVC INTRODUCES GY-HMZ1U PROHD
3D CAMCORDER AT NAB 2011
- WAYNE, NJ (April 11, 2011)
– JVC Professional Products Company, a division of JVC Americas
Corp., unveiled the new GY-HMZ1U ProHD 3D camcorder today at the
2011 NAB Show (Booth C4314),
which runs through April 14 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in
Las Vegas, Nev.
With an integrated 3D twin lens design powered by JVC’s
proprietary large-scale integration (LSI) chip for high-speed
processing of HD video, the GY-HMZ1U can simultaneously record each
left and right image in full 1920x1080 resolution.
- The handheld camcorder features dual 3.32
megapixel CMOS sensors – one for each lens – and delivers 34
Mbps AVCHD recording in 3D or 24 Mbps in 2D. Video can be recorded
with timecode at 60i to provide smooth motion (for sports and other
fast action) or 24p for a film-like effect. The GY-HMZ1U can also
capture 3D time lapse and 3D digital stills.
- “With the new GY-HMZ1U, video production
professionals get true 3D with full HD resolution,” said Craig
Yanagi, national marketing and brand manager. “3D production can
be extremely complex, but JVC’s new ProHD camcorder makes 3D more
accessible to independent filmmakers, commercial and corporate
production houses, and even educational markets.”
- Equipped with an advanced image stabilizer,
the twin F1.2 HD lenses offer a 5x optical zoom in 3D and 10x
optical zoom in 2D. Video is recorded to non-proprietary SDHC or
SDXC media cards or to the camera’s built-in 80GB internal memory.
The GY-HMZ1U’s 3.5-inch color LCD touch panel offers glasses-free
3D viewing and built-in tools like zebra pattern. Other professional
features include a handle with dual XLR mic inputs and shotgun
microphone mount (mic optional).
- The GY-HMZ1U will be available this fall and
market priced under $2,500.
