American company Viewsonic, renowned for developing plasma displays, HDTV technology, CRT monitors and projectors has now just announced it’s latest offering in the form of the 3D 720p Camcorder. It seems with the lead up to the holiday season, we have a lot to look forward to with not only this, but another device the 22-inch Multi-Touch Monitor geared up for the European market.
According to Darren Murph at Engadget, the new pocket camcorder “3DV5” will be a 720p shooter with incorporation of 2.4-inch autosterescopic display and 10 megabytes of internal memory which can be expanded. Users will be able to make their own 3D movies with the touch of a button and function of switching between 2D and 3D recording modes, with the benefit of then plugging it directly into a 3D HDTV (via HDMI) or, with the advantage of watching it on-screen without the need for 3D glasses. For those of you who wish to upload your recorded videos, can do so by logging directly onto YouTube‘s 3D using the supplied “anaglyph” glasses.
In a recent statement from Viewsonic’s European Product Marketing Manager “James Coulson,” he said, “Everyone has watched 3D movies at the cinema, and lots of people are considering purchasing a 3D compatible display, whether a TV, monitor or projector. However, there is a lack of available 3D content, and people want to create 3D content that they will be able to watch for years to come. The Viewsonic 3DV5 makes it easy for anyone to create future-proof, high quality 3D home movies and also shoot in standard 2D. As well as being easy to use, the camcorder is also excellent value for money, and will make a great gift this Christmas.”
