If you live life to the extreme, and want to document it, then you need to check out the new JVC GC-XA1 ADIXXION camcorder. It has a bunch of features, and the ruggedness of this device will let you take it with you anywhere.
Set to be released in February, the JVC RD-R1 and RD-R2 portable recorders are meant to be used to record outdoor performances, hence the large stereo microphones. You can also use them to record interviews, if you want to intimidate the person you’re talking to.
If you are the early adopter sort, you know being the first to get your hands on a gadget that is the world’s first this-or-that is never cheap, and often that stuff you pay out the nose for just doesn’t work like you expect.
I know that there are a bunch of geeks out there that strip out the factory audio gear in their new car as soon at its parked in the drive way. I can understand that, the factory stuff tends to not sound that great for the most part, and is often feature limited.
If you’re a regular reader of Technabob, you probably know that I’m a big fan of LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) based projectors. In terms of image quality, contrast and lack of visible pixel structure, they’re second only to good old CRTs.
Here’s a unique digital media player from Japan’s Victor/JVC. It’s a completely self-contained waterproof audio system that can float in your tub.
When Victor’s XA-AQ33-W media player isn’t swimming around the bathtub with you, it can head to dry dock in a stand that sits on your bedside table.
JVC took the wraps off of its latest series of widescreen LCD televisions today. The new sets range in size from 37 inches to 47 inches, and from $1600 to $2700.
First off, there’s the 688 series, consisting of a 37-inch model (LT-37X688) and a 42-incher (LT-42X688.)
Japan’s JVC is showing off a monster of a television this week, with a whopping 110-inch diagonal screen size.
Just look at how much bigger this TV is than that “tiny” 37-incher on the left (and the life-sized woman to the right for that matter.)
Coming this April, JVC’s new Everio GZ-HD7 camcorder is the first consumer video camera to feature full 1920x1080i resolution hard disk recording. The camera records up to 5 hours of 1080i MPEG2 content on its internal 60GB hard drive.
If you’ve been intrigued by the excellent image quality of LCOS (liquid crystal on silicon) rear projection TVs, but don’t care for the depth of these screens when compared to LCD and plasma sets, you’re in luck.
Every few days, I report on a “world’s largest” or “world’s smallest” thingamabob, and today should be no different.
JVC has just shown a new D-ILA (aka LCOS or SXRD) rear projection set that measures a whopping 110 inches.
