JVC announces at the CES 2007 the first consumer full High-Definition 3-CCD camcorder capable of shooting and recording full HD images (1920 x 1080i).

The JVC GZ-HD7 uses three 1/5-inch 16:9 progressive scan CCDs designed for HD use in a diagonally offset pixel configuration to generate the high resolution image for recording in full HD. The Red and Blue imaging CCDs are shifted a half-pixel both horizontally and vertically relative to the Green imaging CCD.
Because the pixel-shift system uses progressive scan CCDs, signals are processed first as 1920 x 1080p progressive signals, then converted to 1920 x 1080i interlace signals for recording.

JVC also is the first to use the Broadcast HD Video Camera Fujinon Lens in a Consumer Camcorder.
The new HD Everio GZ-HD7 to be available in April 2007. No pricing information available yet.
JVC already previewed the HD Everio at the IFA 2006 in Germany.
