(Pocket-lint) - Japanese electronics company JVC has announced the launch and release of two products: a 3D HDTV with Smart TV capabilities and a £11,300 4K camcorder.

JVC has partnered with Taiwan's Amtran to launch a flagship HDTV series called BlackSapphire SL. The new models reportedly feature a slim design, thin bezels, edge-lit LED with an "adaptive backlight" and a half-pipe stand. As for software, the Smart TVs will boast built-in Wi-Fi and an array of apps like Pandora and Netflix.

The sizes at launch will include the 42-inch model for $799 (JVC SL42B-C) and the 47-inch model for $899 (JVC SL47B-C), although Amtran revealed to CNET that it's working on larger sets.

The BlackSapphire SL series will land in summer 2013.

The interchangeable lens camcorder offers only manual focus, but users can control the f-stop settings for lenses that have no aperture band. It captures AVC/H.264 4K video at 60 FPS using four SDHC cards that record HD with a data rate of 144Mbps. It'll also shoot 1080/60p video at 28Mbps using just one card.

Other specs include a JVC 4K file manager for converting video, 4K time-lapse recording, 4K 60 FPS output to a monitor, stereo XLR microphone inputs and more. The JY-HMQ30 is now available for £11,300 in Japan, but it's unclear if the camera will launch elsewhere.
