Our take on the JVC CU-PC1 by Crutchfield's Woody Sherman
Command your camcorder's field of view from a distance
The JVC CU-PC1 Pan Cradle is the perfect home monitoring accessory to have when you need to keep an eye on things at home. Even when your camcorder is set to its widest angle, it's not always possible to get an entire room in view. Now you can use your compatible smartphone or tablet to automatically pan your camcorder 180 degrees via your home Wi-Fi® network. The secure base also tilts manually 40 degrees up and down. The device can mount on a tripod as well. And it works with all 2013 Wi-Fi equipped JVC Everio camcorders.
