LAS VEGAS, March 2, 2003 - JVC Company of America announced its 2003 digital camera models, including the compact GC-A55 and GC-A33, and the ultra compact GC-A50. All three cameras feature a sleek new design and offer both still image recording and Webcam capabilities.

"JVC's 2003 dual-mode digital cameras offer state-of-the-art digital imaging technology for every type of consumer, from first time digital user to experienced pro," said Rob Payesko, JVC Merchandising Manager, Consumer Video division. "This year's models also feature Web camera capabilities and make it easier than ever to send digital stills and video clips."

All JVC 2003 digital cameras come equipped with a USB connection that allows simple, high-speed transfer of image data to a PC. Further, the cameras are equipped for use as Webcams, feature built-in flash memory with an 8MB capacity, and include software for downloading and viewing images.

With JVC's 2003 digital smart cameras, capturing high quality images is fast and easy. The GC-A55 and the ultra-compact GC-A50 are equipped with a 1.3 mega-pixel CMOS, capable of capturing images with a resolution up to 1280x1024 pixels. Both can also shoot video clips. The GC-A33 is an easy-to-use dual mode digital and PC camera, capturing pictures with a resolution up to 640x480 pixels.

The GC-A55 features a 1.5" inch full-color LCD and 2X digital zoom, allowing the user to easily frame the photo and preview recorded still images and video.
