JVC 4k2k consumer camcorder "just around the corner"

JVC president Yuta Ito has confirmed to SlashGear that the company's first 4k2k consumer camcorder is "just around the corner," bringing super high-resolution video capture to mainstream levels. The new model will be based on the same exclusive JVC Falconbird image processor as in the 3D Everio GS-TD1 camcorder.

Ito could not say exactly what specifications the camcorder would offer, nor the price point JVC expects to hit with the new model. Falconbird is able to record 3840 x 2160/60p video, or of course the Full HD 3D the GS-TD1 is capable of, and is billed as being 2.7x as fast as JVC's previous processing chips.
