New JVC ADIXXION Camcorder Ready for Action
WAYNE, NJ, June 28, 2012 – A new “action camera” announced today by JVC offers unmatched versatility right out of the box, with standard features that have JVC’s new GC-XA1 ADIXXION camcorder ready to capture the fun in most any situation.

The new JVC GC-XA1 ADIXXION ups the ante in the action camera category by offering a range of features and capabilities that outpace competing models. Truly pocket-sized and weighing barely a quarter pound, ADIXXION is waterproof to a depth of five meters (16.4 feet), shockproof to withstand a fall from two meters (6.5 feet), dustproof and freeze-proof, all without the need for a separate housing. In addition, ADIXXION includes built-in Wi-Fi, 1.5-inch LCD monitor, image stabilizer and offers full HD 1920ื1080/30p and 1280ื720/60p recording.
With the introduction of ADIXXION, JVC brings its decades-long expertise in digital imaging to a category that has seen growing popularity recently as more people want to capture their snowboarding, surfing, mountain biking or just about any other activity, whether on the slopes or with the family at the waterpark. What JVC brings to the category is a camera that comes loaded with standard features compared to competing models and one that can tackle a wide range of activities right out of the box, with no need for an optional housing. ADIXXION comes with two mounts – a goggle mount and a flexible mount suitable for a wide range of applications, including use on a helmet or surfboard. A wide range of optional accessories are available, including specialized mounts.
In addition to its water/shock/dust/freeze-proof design – what JVC dubs “Quad Proof” – ADIXXION features a 1.5-inch LCD monitor built into the side of the camera so it’s easy to check footage in the field without the extra weight and bulk of an external monitor. The camera body features a scratch-resistant rubber texture, and there are two standard tripod sockets for easy mounting in a variety of locations. It weighs a mere 0.28 lbs. (126 grams).
Built-in Wi-Fi opens up a range of possibilities, including wireless connection to a smartphone that can be used to monitor the image – great for framing the shot when the camera is mounted on a helmet or other location where the user can’t see the LCD. Wi-Fi also makes it possible to send images live to a PC or mobile hotspot, or transfer data to a PC for sharing via social networks. What’s more, ADIXXION can stream live high definition video in real time to USTREAM without a PC. Android and iOS apps are available for free download, while Wi-Video PC software is supplied with the camera.
Video recording resolutions range from Full HD to WVGA, and all video is recorded as QuickTime-compatible MP4 files that can be easily viewed on computers and smartphones. Digital image stabilization minimizes camera shake, and the camera includes rolling shutter cancellation that corrects the image skewing that can occur with CMOS image sensors. The result is distortion-free images, even during fast-moving scenes.
A built-in HDMI terminal allows easy connection to HDTVs. Other features include ultra-wide lens, time lapse recording at intervals of 1 or 5 seconds, digital 5x zoom, 5 megapixel stills, white balance (auto/manual), exposure (auto), and self-timer functions.
The GC-XA1 comes with a goggle mount, flexible mount, two lens protection covers, a USB cable and battery. A wide variety of optional accessories is available, including roll bar and handle bar mounts.
The JVC GC-XA1 ADIXXION action camera will be available in late summer for $349.95.

Re: New JVC ADIXXION Camcorder Ready for Action

Thanks for posting. Looks like a great camera. I would like a higher bitrate as 15mbps is kind of low. All those features and they are leaving the codec area a little short imho... since GoPro will be adding a higher bitrate option.

JVC don't know what the POV market wants yet, neither do Sony. Both have some catching up to do.

With Gopro upping its bitrate soon to 35mbs I hope the competition will do the same.

Sony and the JVC are too big and don't have the mounting flexibility GoPro has.

That said, I may try the Sony because I'm tired of GoPro's bait and ignore tactics.

Re: New JVC ADIXXION Camcorder Ready for Action

I wish I'd look here a week ago as I've just bought a GoPro Hero2 but the JVC seems to have all of the things the GoPro lacks for my work - I don't do adventure or underwater - and records at the same, albeit low, bitrate.

The Go Pro might be heading for Ebay.
