Sanyo releases a new Full HD, slim type dual camera Xacti, VPC-CS1, available in February, 2010. The Sanyo Dual Camera series aims to provide customers with more enjoyable video experiences, by offering cameras that allow users to easily capture both photos and videos in daily life, rather than devices that are merely used to record important events. By utilizing a convenient video format that can be easily handled on PC and Internet environments, and even on home TVs, the Sanyo Xacti VPC-CS1 camera is more than just hardware for capturing, viewing, and saving images. The Sanyo Xacti CS1 is a convenient product for sharing videos online, on blogs or on other multi-media sites, and they are able to easily import images to portable media devices.

The Sanyo VPC-CS1 is undergoing certification to be compatible with iFrame, a next generation video format that has been designed to allow users to easily import, edit and share high quality video. Sanyo is offering new ways to enjoy images after they are captured, and the Dual Cameras have been well received by consumers all over the world. The Sanyo Xacti CS1 digital camera has a great degree of portability in a compact, lightweight and slim design. The Sanyo CS1 is a new style of video camera that can record events and occasions as well as capture unforgettable scenes or single frames from daily life in Full HD, just as easily as taking a snapshot.

Sanyo Xacti CS1 compact camera design
Product development for the Sanyo Xacti CS1 has been carried out with an emphasis on a compact design that can be taken anywhere and anytime, using the concept of a handy device for recording the moments of daily life. In order to make the Sanyo CS1 even more compact than previous models, Sanyo has developed a slim sensor module and a new super slim lens. With its compact size (approx. 126 cc in volume), lightweight design approx. 5 oz), and slim body (1.06” in thickness) for superior portability, the Sanyo VPC-CS1 is a new style of video camera that will radically expand the situations where it can be used. The original vertical ergonomic style enables a slim body with usability.

Capture HD videos with the Sanyo CS1 camera
The Sanyo VPC-CS1 not only features a super slim and compact body, but can also capture Full HD videos with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. The video format used is “MPEG-4 AVC / H.264,” which is easy to use on PC and Internet environments, as it is a single file format, similar to the one used for still photos. Consequently, video files are displayed in the same thumbnail format as still picture files, and they can also be played back directly with Windows Media Player, and editable with Windows Live Movie Maker, and are Device Stage compatible. This makes the files even more convenient for use on computers.

Sanyo Xacti CS1 camera supports iFrame
To enhance its versatility, the Sanyo Xacti CS1 is undergoing official certification to support iFrame, a next generation video format that has been designed to allow users to easily import, edit and share high quality video. This format enables the camcorder function to record in the same format used for editing on a computer, dramatically speeding up the processes of importing, editing and sharing movies across multiple platforms and devices. iFrame is a computer-friendly format, and can be used with both Mac and PC compatible applications due to the use of standards-based technologies such as H.264, AAC, and MP4. When combined with iMovie in this capture mode, it is possible to realize even greater convenience in the procedure of capturing, uploading to a computer, editing, and sharing.

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CS1 incorporates 3 microphone modes
Sound is an important element for increasing the realism of videos. The Sanyo Xacti VPC-CS1 has three microphone modes for recording clear sounds according to the scene and purpose.
• Wide Mode: Stereo recording with high channel separation
• Gun Microphone Mode: Recording that focuses on sound emanating from the direction that the camera is pointing, while reducing sounds from other directions.
• Zoom Combination Mode: Automatically changes the directivity and sound gathering format according to the zoom positions.
