JVC recently announced world’s first consumer camcorder to offer 3D recording in Full HD at CES 2011. Named GS-TD1, this Full HD 3D camcorder works on a new JVC-developed high-speed processor that can produce two simultaneous Full HD images.

GS-TD1 uses two camera lenses and two 3.32 megapixel CMOS sensors – one for each lens – to capture three-dimensional images much the same way that human eyes work. JVC’s new high-speed imaging engine processes two Full HD images simultaneously – left and right images at 1920 x 1080i – within a single chip. The newly developed “LR Independent Format” makes GS-TD1 world’s first consumer-oriented camcorder capable of 3D shooting in Full HD. JVC’s new camcorder offers other shooting modes as well, including widely used “Side-by-Side Format” for AVCHD (3D) and conventional AVCHD (2D) shooting.

Camcorder features JVC 3D Twin HD GT Lens that sets new standard in high-resolution lenses with extra-low-dispersion glass for crisp, high-contrast images. In addition to this, there are multiple aspherical lenses as well as for fine image reproduction. GS-TD1 also features round iris diaphragms that provide beautiful bokeh effect (background blurring) shooting of video and stills alike.

Additional highlights include 3D optical 5x zoom, JVC’s BIPHONIC technology for 3D sound, Optical Axis Automatic Stabilization System for disparity control to give depth to 3D images, and Automatic Parallax Adjustment to optimize 3D-video comfort zone. A 3.5-inch 3D touch panel LCD monitor displays 3D images without any need for 3D glasses, making it easy to check 3D images while shooting and watching 3D playback in the field.

JVC’s other new HD Everio with 3D capabilities is GZ-HM960. Similar to other HD Everio models in size and features, the GZ-HM960 is distinguished by its 2D-to-3D output function, which can turn any 2D footage into 3D. Output can be viewed without glasses on camera’s 3.5-inch 3D LCD monitor, or by connecting camcorder to an external 3D television. Inbuilt Bluetooth wireless technology lets you integrate with other devices, such as smartphones, to synch images with Google Maps.

The GS-TD1 and GZ-HM960 both use Everio MediaBrowser software for full management, editing and sharing of content. In addition to still image editing and full-fledged video, files can also be uploaded effortlessly to social media sites such as YouTube or Facebook. In GS-TD1, the software allows 3D video to be shared on YouTube.

JVC GZ-TD1 Full HD 3D camcorder will be available in March for $1,999.95, whereas JVC HD Everio GZ-HM960 will be available in February for $949.95. Keep checking Techpl.us for more new releases at CES 2011.
