The new GR-DVM1 digital camcorder is based on the new DV format and takes all the incredible features of the DV1 and adds a super sharp LCD monitor.
The GR-DVM1, using DV cassettes (about the size of a matchbook) will enable you to record up to 90 minutes of high-quality video. All the incredible features of the DV series packaged into one of the smallest camcorders in the world.
The GR-DVM1 represents a colossal boost in the video evolution. With the development of the new DV format and, in particular, the ultra-compact Mini DV cassette-- it now possible to redefine how we look at the video camera. By shrinking the mechanical and electronic components, JVC has succeeded in reducing the camcorder in weight and size similar to that of a 35mm photo camera.
Moreover, the GR-DVM1 can now function as a convenient "digital notebook," carried everywhere! Besides being ready to record your favorite video moments, it can also serve as an invaluable tool for your audio-visual presentations in the mode business world. In addition, the fact that it's digital means that editing and dubbing can be performed with virtually no loss in picture or sound quality. The addition of a high resolution swivel LCD monitor make the GR-DVM1 the citadel of higher technology.
Several technical and engineering advances lie behind the development of the DV series. Its downsized high-performance lens with optical 10x zoom weighs in at just over 1 ounce(35g) and is less than 2 inches (50mm) long! The miniaturized mechanism with "glide loading" is the key to the camcorder's compact design. Our Low-voltage operation reduces power consumption allowing the use of a battery slightly larger that a AA battery.
Our miniaturized components make it possible to create a high-performance camcorder that weighs in at a mere 1.4lbs. The camera with its high-tech aluminum finish, will fit easily into a pocket or small purse. And because the vertical size is symmetrical, the GR-DVM1 can be used with either hand or eye.
The 570,000-pixel 1/3" CCD ensures the highest quality recordings with enhanced detail and clarity. This technological marvel can also operate in extreme low light situations: with less than 1 lux in slow-shutter mode. In other words, the GR-DVM1 can record images with light as little as 1 birthday candle!
The sound quality is digital! There are 2 PCM Digital Audio stereo recording modes: either 2 channels with 48kHz sampling and 16 bit-quantization, or 4 channels with kHz sampling and 12-bit quantization. What does all of this mean? Your audio recordings will be CD quality!
Technically perfect. Perfectly simple. We're known for designing products that are easy to use! With the GR-DVM1 we've designed a Menu System to keep controls and switches to a minimum. The Tele/Wide zoom lever is used to make menu selections as they appear in the electronic Color Viewfinder, which slides back to engage standby mode. Manual control over focus, exposure and white balance is available, however most will opt for the Full Auto mode. And, our 5-sec. Rec (QwikPix) feature simplifies operation, ensuring a lively scene-to-scene tempo while allowing the user to concentrate on what they are recording.
In addition to the high-speed 10x optical zoom, there is a 20x digital zoom for close-up shots, and for even greater magnification there's a 100x Super Digital Zoom. Plus, 12 Digital Effects - including Slow Shutter, Echo and Sepia modes - and 18 Scene Transitions are available during shooting.
For added flexibility the GR-DVM1 has a Snapshot mode, which freezes the image with a white border -- like a still photograph -- with an accompanying shutter sound effect. These can be later collected with the automatic Snapshot Search feature, enabling the creation of a video album for viewing or printing. And the Motor Drive mode allows shooting of these "snapshots" in rapid succession. The user can also select a Wind Cut Filter for improved audio recordings, and Squeeze Mode for adapting to a wide-screen (16 : 9 ratio) televisions.
The DV series can easily connect directly to a TV monitor for playback. Besides standard VCR controls and other features such slow-motion playback, the user may choose from a 6 Digital Effects (Pinpoint Digital Zoom, Echo, Black & white, Sepia Strobe and Classic Cinema) during playback.
Fitted with its own audio and video output jacks (including S-video) for full TV/VCR connectivity, the Docking Station offers control and out facilities for precise editing with flexibility normally found only in a professional editing studio. In addition to insert editing and audio dubbing, there is the new R.A. Edit (Random Assemble Editing) function, which can be operated via remote control. This enables the programmed rearrangements of up to 8 scenes at a time with selections of 5 Digital Effects and 17 different Scene Transitions.
The key to unlocking the GR-DVM1's potential for multimedia applications is our Joint Interface Protocol. This JVC development allows the interconnection of AV equipment and personal computers. (Optional accessories required)
The digital format thrives in producing luscious color images of whatever it's aimed at. Then the images can be downloaded to your VCR, TV, or PC. The DV series allows for near instant web publishing of your digital photos. (With optional capture device.)
Because it's digital you can edit your images with intense resolution and accuracy. Never before has a machine of such opportunity been so widely available. JVC GR-DVM1 - the only limitation is your imagination.
