About the JVC GY-HMZ1U

The GY-HMZ1U 3D Camcorder from JVC makes professional stereoscopic 3D image capture accessible to a broad range of users. Boasting 3D video, 3D still image and 3D time-lapse recording, the dual-lens, dual-imager HMZ1U plays back glasses-free 3D video on its 3.5" LCD screen. The camera also records high-definition 2D video as AVCHD, so you can use the camera with any of your traditional HD-capable video equipment and workflows.

The HMZ1U features twin bright HD lenses (f/1.2 at the wide end) that zoom up to 5x in 3D modes and 10x in 2D modes. The imagers are likewise twinned; at 3.3 M/p each, the 1/4.1-type CMOS chips capture dual video signals at Full HD 1920 x 1080 that can be recorded as a single file that's encoded as MVC. This is a variant of AVCHD's MPEG-4 compression that, with its left-eye and right-eye information, contains double the usual information of a comparable two-dimensional HD file.

Along with traditional 2D capture of AVCHD at several selectable bit rates, there are also modes for recording 3D as two half-sized images side-by-side, producing bit-efficient AVCHD files. The camcorder's Falcon bird LSI processing enables the recording of 3D video as both 60i, for smooth motion in fast-action shots and as 24p, for a film-like effect. Along with its capability to record cinematic 24p Full HD, what truly sets this camcorder apart from consumer 3D models is the audio section. With built-in "3D" stereo microphones and dual XLRs for high-quality stereo audio capture from a shotgun mic or wireless audio receiver, the HMZ1U enables the professional audio capture that befits a professional 3D video camera. (A shotgun mic holder is included on the camera's handle but a microphone is sold separately.) Audio is recorded in 3D modes as dual-channel AAC for biphonic 3D sound and in 2D modes it's recorded as two-channel Dolby Digital.

JVC GY-HMZ1U Features

  • Full HD 3D 24-p and 60i Recording in a variety of formats: The GY-HMZ1 delivers 2D or 3D recordings in either 1920x1080 Full HD resolution in a range of formats, including 24p
  • Falconbrid Engine: The newly developed FALCONBRID high-speed imaging engine makes possible the simultaneous processing of independent left and right Full HD 1920x1080 images at up to 34 Mbps
  • JVC 3D Twin HD GT Lens: Designed by JVC and manufactured to strict quality standards, the Twin HD GT Lens features several aspherical lenses and extra-low dispersion glass to minimize chromatic aberration caused by light refraction for sharp, high-contrast images even at the edges of the frame
  • Fully synchronized 5-times optical zoom in 3D mode with Auto Parallax adjustment: The GY-HMZ1 adjusts parallax while zooming keeping a natural look to the scene. This is accomplished by unique JVC algorithm that alters the 3D convergence point according to the distance of the subject from the lens
  • New Automatic Stabilization System: Automatic stabilization corrects the image displacement of the twin lenses and stabilizes the optical axis, resulting in smoother 3D images, even when using the 5x optical zoom
  • 3D Time-Lapse and Motor Drive recording: The GY-HMZ1 records one frame at a time at set intervals (1sec./10sec./80sec.) for stunning 2D or 3D time lapse video recording. The camera also offers Motor Drive Shooting similar to what's found on Digital SLR cameras
