NAB 2012: JVC To Expand ProHD Camera Lineup

JVC will expand its ProHD camera lineup, with plans to announce details at NAB. Renowned for outstanding image quality, feature-rich shoulder-mount, and handheld models, native file recording, and a shoot-to-edit workflow that uses inexpensive, non-proprietary solid-state media cards, ProHD cameras are currently used by hundreds of stations around the country.

The new GY-HM150 ProHD handheld camcorder, making its NAB debut, is built to handle demanding production environments. It records to SDHC or SDXC media cards, offers simultaneous recording to two memory cards for instant backup or client copy, and provides HD and SD recording options. The new ProHD Compact Studio configures the GY-HM150 for a studio environment using the HZ-HM150VZR ProHD remote lens control and the DT-X71 ProHD monitor.

Also at NAB, JVC will introduce a number of new professional monitors, as well as the SR-HD2500US, its latest Blu-ray disc and HDD recorder, which features HD/SD-SDI input and output for compatibility with most HD cameras, recorders, and production switchers. The company will also showcase the world’s first handheld 4K camcorder, the GY-HMQ10, which captures, records, and plays video images at four times the resolution of HD.
