JVC's New HD Camcorders Feature Built-In Hard Drives

JVC is introducing a new series of consumer camcorders that record up to seven hours of DVD movie-quality video at 9 Mbps using built-in hard disk drives. The benefits of recording video to a hard disk are the same benefits that have made hard disk-based audio players so popular -- random access to quickly locate desired material, the ability to effortlessly delete unwanted material, and easily rearrange the playback sequence. The camcorders will feature multiple connections for TV playback, dubbing to a VCR or DVD recorder, or transferring video to a PC or Macintosh for DVD creation, editing, or posting to the Internet.
