LAS VEGAS—JVC is previewing a 4K camcorder with a list price of  $4,995, this week at the Consumer Electronics Show.

The JVC camcorder records 3840x2160 footage at 24p, 50p, or 60p.

4K resolution -- roughly four times that of high definition -- is building momentum in the professional and also now in the consumer space.

At CES, for instance, Sony is previewing a 4K home theater system, and LG unveiled a 4K x 2K 84-inch “Ultra HD” 3D Smart TV.

The JVC camcorder records to SDHC or SDXC memory cards. It is expected to be available in March.
