Samsung hard disk based HDTV cam on its way
Looks like there could be yet another format war looming this time in the high definition camcorder market. While Sony with its HDR-HC1 is championing mini DV the existing tape based standard, JVC has already made it clear that it sees hard disk models like the Everio as the way to go for HDTV cams. Now JVC looks to have a powerful ally in the guise of Samsung who yesterday revealed to Tech Digest that it will launch its first HDTV camcorder next year and that it will record footage on to hard disk. The company also confirmed that at the upcoming IFA consumer electronics fair in Berlin it will debut new models in its Miniket flash memory based video camera (pictured) series.
