JVC's Booth

Like about every other consumer electronics giant, JVC too has their own 3D TV, the GD-463D10, a Full HD resolution 46-inch screen with an Xpol polarizing filter built in. This makes the TV compatible with inexpensive polarized glasses for flicker-free reproduction of 3D content with better color than the anaglyphic glasses.

Fancy the possibility of viewing existing 2D content in 3D formats? JVC's IF-2D3D1 unit does real-time conversion using the company's proprietary algorithms for stereo video output. It also has parallax and 3D intensity adjustment to provide you the desired intensity of 3D effects.

We caught this demo showcasing the real-time conversion of 2D content shown natively on the smaller right screen and being output to the conversion box, which outputs the 3D converted content to the bigger screen on the left. The effect is not visible on this photo capture, but it certainly does work.

Speaking of other TVs in their lineup, JVC also launched their updated Teledock series, now in the third generation. This series allows you to dock your iPod to your TV and easily output audio, video directly to your TV. Navigation is now improved with a more iPod-like interface and better overall usability. The dock also doubles up as your charging station. Seen here is the 42-inch, 42P510 model supporting Full HD resolution, 120Hz Clear Motion Drive and triple HDMI ports; the inset picture is the flip open dock.

Other than TVs, of course JVC is well known for their Everio camcorder series and for 2010, one of the most important updates is in the camcorder's advanced image stabilizer. Demonstrating side by side with their 2009 model on a rocking platform and outputting the captured feedback on a TV, it was visibly evident that the 2010 model is much better in its anti-shake technology. The model shown here is the GZ-HM550B and its specs include the following:- 10.6MP CMOS sensor, F2.8 Konica Minolta HD lends, 32GB internal flash memory, SD/SDHC card slot, Bluetooth support, 15x dynamic zoom, AIS, Super LoLux, Direct DVD creation and Direct YouTube upload.

The new JVC NX-D2 mini stereo system does all the expected functions of its class, but it also has a dock for your iPod, USB connectivity and get this - motion sensor for gesture controls. Even the touch interface is on the system is an advanced variant that JVC dubs as the Laser Touch.
