for Pioneering Development of Consumer Camcorders. JVC Executive Vice President

and COO Harry Elias accepted the award, which was presented by the National

Academy of Television Arts and Sciences at a ceremony held in New York on

October 16.

The beginning of consumer camcorders started with JVC introducing the world?s

first portable video system (Vidstar) for consumer use in 1977. For the first

time, users were able to produce their own affordable color videotapes with

impressive results. JVC has maintained the tradition of creating

technologically advanced and affordable camcorders. This tradition started with

JVC’s 16.5 lb. HR /GC-3350 in 1978, which was used by broadcast professionals,

and evolved to JVC’s newest camcorder, the GR-DVP3 which is the world’s smallest

and lightest Mini DV camcorder, weighing less than .78lbs. These camcorders have

become an integral part of society and are used for everything from capturing

family moments to business applications.
