JVC Professional Products Company further expands its reach in the professional HD marketplace by introducing the new 720p and 1080i signal selectable GY-HD200UB ProHD camcorder. Since the introduction of the ProHD professional high definition system at NAB in 2004, JVC has continued to provide advancements in product technology and production efficiency.
The new GYHD200UB ProHD Professional HD camcorder provides selectable live transport stream output capability of either 1080 60i and 50i signals or 720 24p, 25p, 30p, 50p and 60p through the IEEE 1394 connection. The selected IEEE 1394 output signal can also be recorded into the ProHD DR-HD100 Hard Disk Recorder as either .m2t or .mov QuickTime™ files.
"The dual 720p and 1080i live transport stream capability of the new GY-HD200UB provides unmatched flexibility and efficiency in a professional shoulder mount HD camcorder," states Craig Yanagi, National Marketing Manager, Creation Products, JVC Professional Products Company. "Combined with the DR-HD100 Hard Disk Recorder with Native File Recording capability, the GY-HD200UB camera system becomes the fastest and most efficient ‘shoot-to-edit’ professional HD camera system in the industry."
The GY-HD200UB also offers full-frame 1280 x 720 progressive imaging and 720p recording as well as a 14bit A/D converter and a 14.4v power system standard. The selectable 60p and 60i acquisition capability of the GY-HD200UB is ideal for HD news and sports acquisition, while filmmakers and HD dramatic productions will appreciate the native progressive image capture and the "overcranked" recording for superb slow motion images during 24p final output.
JVC’s renowned line of ProHD cameras have been used in many television and film productions including America’s Most Wanted, 24, and The Inconvenient Truth, and by organizations such as The Miami Dolphins, Raycom Media, Scripps Television Station Group, and Waterman Broadcasting.
