WKRC-TV Launches in HD with JVC ProHD Cameras

WKRC-TV, a Newport Television station moving to HD, has added
JVC’s ProHD GY-HD250 studio cameras.

“One of the main reasons we chose the
GY-HD250 was the multi configuration abilities. The camera could be
configured as a true studio camera with CCU and RCU controls whereas other
manufactures didn’t have that complete capability within this product
range. Another major concern for us was the flesh tone detail ability
which exceeded our expectations. The cameras are versatile from many aspects
and lightweight, which is an important feature for our ENG production,” said
Kurt Thelen, director of engineering, WKRC-TV. “JVC enables us to operate
in an SD environment with the ability to transition seamlessly, with a simple
setting change, to HD next year.

In addition to the station’s daily newscasts, the GY-HD250s
are utilized to produce two half hour programs, “NewsMakers” and “Make Peace
with Nature.”

“In the very near future, we’re planning to upgrade our ENG
cameras with JVC’s GY-HD250s,” added Thelen.
