Hi-def videocamera expected in March
3D TV content may be scarce, but consumer electronics companies mean to give consumers the tools to create their own 3D stills and videos, as well as TVs for watching them.The latest entry in the 3D camcorder space is JVC, which unveiled a camcorder that records at full HD on each eye and includes a built-in 3.5″ autostereo touchscreen for control and reviewing footage. The GS-TD1, skedded to ship in March for just under $2000, includes image stabilization that harmonizes the left and right eye images and automatic adjustment to set the “no parallax” (i.e., convergence) point for the most comfortable image. Bundled software lets consumers extract 2D video from the 3D recording. JVC’s roadmap includes for a consumer 4K/2K camcorder and the company will be showing a prototype at its booth at CES.
