CES 2011: Show Floor Coverage (Part 6)

JVC's Booth

JVC's Booth

Seen at JVC's booth was this next generation ultra high definition (4k2k) reference camcorder. It is equipped with the next generation picture engine called FalconBrid to enable such high resolution captures and is the industry's first one-chip solution to process videos and stills.

More stats and specs of the reference UHD camcorder. At the show, they've got a reference UHD screen to showcase some of the captures from this camcorder. One word to describe it: Life-like. 

JVC claims the GS-TD1 is the world's first Full HD 3D consumer camcorder (and so does Sony with their version). It sports twin 3.32MP, 1/4.1-inch back-illuminated CMOS sensors, 5x optical zoom in 3D mode, ultra fast f1.2 lens opening, 3D glasses free 3.5-inch LCD, 3D audio capture, 64GB built-in memory and expandable via SDHC/SDXC cards.

JVC also has a line of new camcorders using normal lens with built-in 2D to 3D conversion output. The GZ-HM960 is the top of the line of these camcorders with a 10.6MP back-illuminated CMOS sensor, 3D glasses-free 3.5-inch LCD and 16GB built-in memory and expandable via SDHC/SDXC.  These cameras also excel in low-light recording.

A demonstration of JVC camcorders' ability to excel in capturing in low lighted conditions.

JVC showcasing its 65-inch E-LED polorized LCD panel, Of course the notion for going with passive glass technology is to capitalize on the less troublesome, low-cost 3D glasses. Other notable features include dual-band WiFi IPTV, built-in VUDU internet apps and HDMI 1.4 support. Just below the TV, is JVC's new two-way, six-speaker ultra slim soundbar - a design aspect that's often overlooked by several soudbar makers.

JVC's new ultra-thin LED backlit LCD, 1:1,1,000,000 dynamic contrast ratio, HDMI 1.4a support, anti-glare hard coating and Helios sound subsystem with rear-firing woofers. Shown here is the 46E910, a 46-inch model.

We saw JVC's real-time solution for 2D to 3D conversion last year, but this year they've revised the solution and it produces even more convincing 3D output with better depth, separation and intelligent processing.

The JVC DLA-X9 is the world's first 3D THX certified front projector powered by tri-chip full HD D-ILA technology. It's not new for CES, but we couldn't resist highlighting it.

And something else shown at JVC's booth is this cool GPS device utilizing 3D technology that doesn't require glasses. The best part is how some of the intended 3D arrows, landmarks and other areas of focus are practically floating out of the screen - it's a surreal experience.
