Full HD 3D 24-p and 60i Recording in a variety of formats
The GY-HMZ1 delivers 2D or 3D recordings in either 1920x1080 Full HD resolution in a range of formats, including 24p. Compatibility with existing production systems is maintained thanks to JVC's unique L/R Independent format as well as the widely used Side-by-Side format. Supplied software splits the 3D file into separate left and right image files for Non-Linear Editing workflow support.

The newly developed FALCONBRID™ high-speed imaging engine makes possible the simultaneous processing of independent left and right Full HD 1920x1080 images at up to 34 Mbps. The single-chip processor is also responsible for calculating the image displacement and adjusting the parallax for accurate and sharp 3D image recording.

Designed by JVC and manufactured to strict quality standards, the Twin HD GT Lens features several aspherical lenses and extra-low dispersion glass to minimize chromatic aberration caused by light refraction for sharp, high-contrast images even at the edges of the frame. The result is an industry-leading super bright F1.2 lens that delivers a remarkable level of detail and clarity, resulting in stunning 3D images.

Fully synchronized 5-times optical zoom in 3D mode with Auto Parallax adjustment
The GY-HMZ1 automatically adjusts parallax while zooming keeping a natural look to the scene. This is accomplished by unique JVC algorithm that alters the 3D convergence point according to the distance of the subject from the lens. Manual adjustment is also possible.
When recording in the 2D mode, the zoom range is 10:1.

New Automatic Stabilization System
Automatic stabilization corrects the image displacement of the twin lenses and stabilizes the optical axis, resulting in smoother 3D images, even when using the 5x optical zoom.

3D Time-Lapse Video and Motor Drive Still Image recording
The GY-HMZ1 records one frame at a time at set intervals (1sec./10sec./80sec.) for stunning 2D or 3D time lapse video recording. The camera also offers Motor Drive still image shooting similar to what's found on Digital SLR cameras. In the High Speed mode, as many as 11 still images are acquired in 3D at approx. 12 frames per second (fps). In 2D High Speed mode, up to 40 images can be recorded at approx. 12fps. There is also a Low Speed mode which captures images at approximately 4 frames per second (fps).
