JVC introduces hand-held professional HD camcorder into European market

JVC have announced the world's first professional hand-held camcorder with complete HD recording capabilities: the JY-HD10E.
Programme makers on a limited budget, in such industries as events, education, broadcast, medical, corporate communications, advertising, and government, can now produce in high definition without having to invest significantly in new equipment.
This single CCD (1.18 million pixel, 16:9) professional camcorder offers the unique ability to record at various resolution modes. It records at HD resolution 720p and will output at both 720p and up-converted 1080i signals.
Recording is performed using native 16:9 from the CCD with a MPEG-2 HD compression algorithm (GOP - 6) directly on to standard size Mini-DV cassettes, which is at the same mode of recording DV in standard definition mode. The camcorder also incorporates a standard mode with 4:3 DV compression of MPEG-2 at 480/60p or 480/60i.
The JY-HD10E provides format-conversion while playing back through its analogue component outputs, so it can upconvert to 1080/60i or downconvert into 480/60p and 480/60i to instantly view images on the viewfinder.
This is particularly useful if no HD display is available on which to view the images. Programme makers now have the flexibility to shoot in HD and then play back HD recordings to any display device with component inputs.
For added performance and flexibility utilising MPEG-2 compression, the JY-HD10E provides the optimal balance between full bandwidth (1280x720 pixels) within a 19Mbps data stream. MPEG-2 is compatible with D-VHS for archiving and distribution; and in the 480/60p mode, for DVD mastering.
Images captured are able to be displayed at high resolution using JVC's range of HD monitors (DT-V range), the DLA-SX21 projector and JVC's range of XGA plasma screens.
