The camcorders are also equipped with three digital interfaces for digital viewing: USB, HDMI and Firewire/i.LINK. By connecting the camcorders directly to an optional CU-VD40 HD Everio Share Station DVD Burner via USB, the user can burn HD 12cm DVD discs.

The HD6 and HD5 come with the CyberLink BD Solution software suite for Windows, but are also compatible with Apple iMovie HD and Final Cut Pro video software for the Macintosh.

The JVC GZ-HD6, offered in black, and the GZ-HD5, in silver, are available for $1,399 and $1,199, respectively.
