Plans to release micro-four-thirds camera systems with 4K video, under the JVC and Kenwood brands, have been announced today.

JVCKENWOOD announced a ‘4k mini camera system equipped with a 4K super35mm image sensor’ at the National Association of Broadcasters show in Las Vegas, USA.

Kenwood merged with JVC in October 2011, to form JVCKENWOOD, which is based in Yokohama, Japan.

Joint statement issued by Olympus and Panasonic on 7 April 2014:

‘The JVCKENWOOD Corporation, which manufactures and sells video, audio, and radio equipment globally under the JVC and KENWOOD brands, has joined the Micro Four Thirds group and will soon be introducing an exciting new line of advanced new Micro Four Thirds products.

‘The release of these new products will add to the growing diversity of the Micro Four Thirds System line-up, which now consists of a wide range of products that represent the unique characteristics of each participating company.’
