JVC 1080i Everio Camera

Sony has largely held the leadership of HD-capable video cameras. JVC would like to challenge that supremacy with its new Everio model announced today in Japan, which promises to outperform Sony's Handycam models in image quality. Despite claims of supporting 1080i resolution, most Handycams manage the resolution only at a standard aspect ratio of 1440x1080; widescreen usually requires lowering the recording quality. The new Everio model uses a pixel shifting technique to interpolate a higher-quality image from its 3-CCD sensor and get a true, 1920x1080 widescreen interlaced picture. JVC adds that the new camera is also the first to use the company's FUJINON 10X optical zoom lens, which has until now been reserved for professional cameras, and stores its video on hard drive. A prototype of the Everio is expected at Japan's CEATEC convention next week, suggesting that a final version will ship early next year.
