Broadcast giant JVC has launched the world's first consumer 3D HD camcorder. The GS-TD1, which works via a processor using two camera lenses, and two 3.32 megapixel CMOS sensors to capture 3D images, aims to record pictures in the same way human eyes see them.
As well as producing 3D shots, viewers will be able to see their scenes in HD using JVC's compression scheme called 'LR Independent Format', making it the first camcorder released for consumers that is capable of creating both HD and 3D films, reports Prokit.
It also comes with a touch-panel LCD monitor, which allows people to watch the movies back without the aid of 3D glasses. This news comes after JVC produced the first 3D recording to be shown at the Royal Albert Hall, when it shot the Prince's Trust Rock Gala event in December 2010.
