DXG Unveils Consumer 3D Camcorder

Quote:


New York - Value camcorder manufacturer DXG USA unveiled here Tuesday an expanded line of digital camcorders, highlighted by one of the industry's first consumer models capable of capturing images in 3D.

The DXG 3DView pocket 3D camcorder, model DXG-321, will be bundled as a $600 suggested retail kit that will include the camcorder and a 7-inch LCD glasses-free 3D "media player" viewscreen

Quote:


DXG sales and marketing senior VP Paul Goldberg said the company plans to market several versions of the 3D camcorders, although the DXG-321 will be the first to market. It will offer only standard-definition resolution pictures, but will capture both video and stills in either 3D or 2D.

$600.00

That's a lot better than the Toshiba 3D VHS-C camcorder which cost $3000 when it was released 21 years ago!

The article doesn't specifically note what format the video is stored in. The fact that the video is standard def makes me want to guess one of the optional playback formats like squeezed side-by-side. I'd also be interested to know what format the video is stored in just to find out if it would be editable in a "standard" (non-3D) NLE application.

I am wondering, however, how these two statements can be reconciled:

...playable...on most 3D TV displays available from many manufacturers this year...

...No HDMI 1.4 output is included on the camcorder...

Playback via the SD card no doubt. Will most 3DTVs have SD slots?

The 3D camcorder utilizes side-by-side lenses to capture images from two different perspectives. Stills are captured in resolutions up to 5 megapixels, while videos are saved in AVI format on an SD card. The camera lacks an HDMI output, however.
