JVC LSI camera tech has 3D, 4K2K capabilities

JVC this week announced it will soon introduce the first LSI chip technology in its consumer camcorders. The 40nm chip will bring with it high-speed processing of HD video, the ability to shoot in HD in 3D, and high-resolution 4K images that are nearly four times higher than 1080p images. LSI technology is also less power hungry and expensive by hosting all these features on one chip.

The LSI chip will make processing 2.7 times faster than previous CPUs, JVC said, with camera-signal processing 1.7 times faster. This enables 8.3-megapixel video at 60 frames per second. H.264 video processing is twice as fast as well, allowing for 2.07-megapixel images at 60 frames per second.

A consumer camcorder with the LSI tech will be shown off at the CES expo early next month, though no details are known about it other than that it will probably fit into the Everio line.

    4K is impressive

    but the size of the imaging chip and the glass are still more important.

    I'll take a 1080p image shot by a camera with a quality lens and 3 chips over a really big image that doesn't look very good.
