JVC has developed a "Dual Codec Compatible HD Signal Processing LSI for Camcorders" that supports two high-definition signal compression formats.
This technology makes it possible to choose while shooting between the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC format which is suited for long-time high quality recording, and the MPEG-2
format which offers high bit rate stability as well as compatibility with the current environment for video editing.
JVC improved picture quality for low bit rate recording by fine-tuning the codec algorithm. The LSI offers long-time recording of Full HD (1920x1080 pixel) using just 5 Mbps.
The LSI is also equipped with interfaces essential for camcorders such as IDE, SD card slot and USB.
