JVCJVC GR-X5 MiniDV Camcorder introduction : JVC introduces its first 3-CCD MiniDV camcorder, a uniquely-designed compact model that also delivers 5-megapixel digital still image performance. The new JVC GR-X5 features individual CCDs for red, green and blue to produce vivid images with true-to-life colour, and advanced pixel shift technology to deliver 5 megapixel-class stills. To further enhance performance, the new Mini DV camcorder includes JVC’s proprietary Megabrid imaging engine that separately optimises image quality for video and digital stills. This technology is packed into a fresh, new design that is both compact and comfortable to hold and operate.
JVC GR-X5 MiniDV camcorder introductionJVC GR-X5 - Performance
The GR-X5 creates sharp and vivid images by dedicating a 1.33 megapixel CCD to each colour. JVC’s advanced prism optics and filterless 3-CCD pixel shift technology quadruple the pixel count to record 5 megapixel-class stills. The broad dynamic range delivers videos with realistic colours and photo-quality digital stills up to 2560 x 1920 pixels for A4 prints. JVC optics using three-dimension angle mounting technology assures high precision CCD registration with accuracy on the order of one micron.

JVC GR-X5 - Innovative design
What sets the GR-X5 apart from other consumer 3-CCD camcorders is its design, with a shape similar to that of a traditional SLR camera. Smaller than most 3-CCD camcorders, the GR-X5 is palm-sized, yet large enough that all controls are easily accessible and the camcorder easy to hold securely. The LCD is at the rear of the camcorder, where it can be opened and viewed in the “down” position directly behind the camera body, or flipped up above the camera and swivelled around to both the left and right. Mounted at ones fingertips, the combined Manual Focus, Exposure and Programme Auto Exposure Dial provides direct access to key adjustments.

JVC GR-X5 - Megabrid imaging engine
To make the most of the GR-X5’s image gathering capabilities, it uses JVC’s Megabrid imaging engine that separately processes video and still signals, providing optimal processing for each. This results in high sensitivity and a high signal-to-noise ratio for moving pictures, as well as clear, high resolution still images. This JVC-exclusive engine works in conjunction with JVC’s proven Super High-Band Processor that restores the high-band components of the luminance signal to ensure a crisp, clear picture. It also offers JVC’s 3-Dimension Noise Reduction (3D NR), proven picture improvement technology used in high definition digital VCRs that’s now available in JVC camcorders. This circuitry reduces video noise by up to 30 percent, especially when shooting in low light.

JVC GR-X5 - Photo quality stills
Thanks to the high quality lens, 3-CCD/5-megapixel performance and Megabrid engine, the GR-X5 is able to shoot photo-quality digital stills up to 2560 x 1920 pixels in size, which make beautiful A4 prints. And since the GR-X5 offers PictBridge support, prints in the size and quantity desired can easily be printed directly from the camcorder, with no need for a computer.

JVC GR-X5 - Convenience features
The GR-X5 camcorder offers a full range of convenience features for easy operation and versatility. An innovative new feature is the Data Battery system, which displays remaining battery and recording time on the LCD screen (using supplied battery pack or other compatible JVC data battery). Auto Flash makes it easier and more convenient to take still images in low light or nighttime situations. Choose from either AUTO, On or Off in either standard or red-eye reduction mode. To make image composition easy, the 2.5-inch Dynamic Backlight LCD offers much clearer images than ordinary backlit LCDs by harnessing the ambient incoming light. So even in bright outdoor situations the image is crystal clear while the LCD’s backlight can be turned off to save on power consumption. The Multi-Language On-Screen function offers a choice of English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, Russian, Arabic, Persia, Traditional Chinese, or Simple Chinese for on-screen menu displays and messages.

JVC GR-X5 - DVD authoring applications
The CyberLink DVD Solution bundled with the GR-X5 includes two applications that make it easy to make full-length DVD movies. PowerProducer 2 Gold offers easy saving and authoring of video clips in any order to DVD, even directly from an i.LINK-connected camera, so users can share original DVDs with anybody who owns a DVD player. Saving to DVD requires only a PC with 128 MB RAM, 700MHz or above Pentium III, i.LINK terminal and a DVD burner. PowerDirector 3 offers feature-rich non-linear editing so users can flex their creative muscle with titles and even mix stills with videos. PowerDirector 3 also converts movies to a variety of file formats to send via the Web or e-mail. Supported formats include DV-AVI, Windows-AVI, MPEG-1 and MPEG-2, as well as Windows Media Video and RealVideo that can be streamed over the Internet.
