JVC introduces at the CES 2011 the GS-TD1, the world’s first consumer camcorder to offer 3D recording in Full HD. It has two 3.32 Megapixel CMOS sensors and two 3D Twin HD GT lenses to capture 3D images much the same way that human eyes work. The camcorder is equipped with JVC’s new high-speed imaging engine that can simultaneously processe the two Full HD images – left and right images at 1920 x 1080i – within that single chip.
The JVC GS-TD1 also features 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. It has a 3.5-inch LCD display that can show 3D images without need for 3D glasses. The camcorder offers other shooting modes as well, including the widely used “Side-by-Side Format” for AVCHD (3D) and conventional AVCHD (2D) shooting.
Coming in March, the JVC GS-TD1 Full HD 3D Camcorder will be priced at $1999.95.
