JVC Everio Camcorders With Built-in Wi-Fi

LAS VEGAS, Jan.  2012 /PRNewswire/ – New JVC Everio camcorders announced at International CES offer built-in Wi-Fi that allows video clips and still images to be emailed, wireless transfer of files to smartphones, and a range of other functions.  The new Wi-Fi models are part of an all-new seven-model Everio line that spans a wide range of needs, from point-and-shoot simplicity for the casual shooter to full manual control for the serious videographer.

All new Everio models record in 1920 x 1080 Full HD based on the AVCHD format, and offer high quality recording in UXP mode with a 24 Mbps sampling rate.  Also, all models offer HDMI® output for superior results when viewing on the latest large-screen TVs.

The Wi-Fi feature is available on four 2012 Everio camcorders that combine the benefits of a conventional camcorder, such as superior image quality and a powerful zoom, with the communication convenience of a smartphone.  Several unique features are available thanks to the built-in Wi-Fi.  A free app for an Android device or iPhone/iPad makes it easy to wirelessly transfer video and stills to a smartphone for quick sharing via the internet. It also allows the phone to be used as a remote control for the Everio and offers geotagging of video and photo files in conjunction with the smartphone’s GPS.  Video Email allows 15-second video clips (640 x 360 pixels) to be sent directly from the Everio to up to eight email addresses. Live Monitoring allows real time monitoring on a smartphone or computer of images taken with the Everio.  And Auto Photo Email automatically emails stills taken using Everio’s movement detection function to a computer or smartphone.

“With Wi-Fi models, JVC fills the gap between a traditional camcorder and a smartphone by combining great image quality with advanced photographic features, such as a powerful zoom and excellent communication capabilities,” explained Dave Owen, vice president, Consumer Video Division, JVC Americas Corp.

The 2012 JVC Everio camcorder line is available in the first quarter of 2012, with some models available immediately.  Prices range from $229.95 to $899.95.  For further product information, visit JVC’s website
