HD Studio Systems From JVC

JVC's ProHD puts flexibility and affordability to the fore; whether setting up a new HD studio or upgrading one from SD, a comprehensive set of studio remote control equipment and other studio accessories, plus a range of LCD monitors for HD monitoring and viewing, offer the means to create an HD studio to suit both operational needs and budget.
JVC’s range of LCD professional HD monitors offers 9”, 17”, 20” and 24” sizes, with the 24” model DT-V24L providing native 1920 x 1080 resolution. They are all ideal for studio, broadcast and post production facilities. Professional features include gold-plated BNCs, high contrast, wide viewing angles and faithful colour reproduction.
Continued success of the GY-HD251 ProHD camera from JVC, particularly within the ENG market, has encouraged JVC Professional to deliver the same qualities of flexibility and affordability to studio applications. The newly developed range of studio accessories means the ENG camcorder can be reconfigured as a studio camera, providing an affordable transition to HD studio operation
The KA-HD250 adapter converts the GY-HD251 to a studio camera. In addition to the HD SDI and SDI outputs, a standard 26-pin multi-core cable can be used to connect the adapter to the new JVC camera control unit, RM-HP250.
The CCU is rack-mountable with HD/SD SDI and 26pin inputs. Although it is digital, the CCU can operate purely as an analogue controller. An additional operator control panel, RM-LP25, can be connected to the CCU, as well as directly to the remote control socket on a 200 series ProHD camera.
This 8.4” high-resolution colour LCD viewfinder operates with the well-received JVC patented Focus Assist feature and supports digital and analogue HD inputs. Connecting directly to the KA-HD250 studio adapter, it takes its power from the JVC camera via the 20p-20p cable provided.
The GY-HD251E camcorder can deliver uncompressed HD footage in HD/SD SDI format at both 720p and 1080i.
For the broadcaster, however, an advantage is the camera’s MPEG-2 encoder which compresses the 1280 x 720 progressive signal to a bit rate of just under 20Mbps, which is ideally suited to cost-effective microwave and satellite HD transmission. This process is optimal for live, remote recording as this level of compression neither visibly degrades the quality of the broadcast signal nor result in the generation of artefacts.
The GY-HD251 and the DT-V range of LCD monitors have already enjoyed much success amongst European and US broadcasters over the last year. A further significant success for ProHD studios has been amongst the more cost-conscious production studios, such as those that operate within educational establishments.
Across the range of HD production, there is always a case for going ProHD for all or part of the process.
