Rusty O'Neal Acquires GY-HC500U CONNECTED CAM™ Production Cameras

Chairman of Monticello Baptist Church's TV and Sound Committee, Rusty O'Neal has acquired GY-HC500U CONNECTED CAM™ production cameras from JVC Professional Video.

Monticello Baptist Church has been using JVC cameras since 1989. With the latest upgrade, the tech team now has six GY-HC500U cameras located throughout the sanctuary. Three are mounted on the balcony and operated by volunteers of the church, and one is located on the floor on a rolling tripod, also manned by a volunteer. The remaining two are stationary: one mounted under the balcony, providing a front shot, while the other is in the control room pointed towards the stage for a wide-angle shot. "These cameras really are the best option for churches," said O'Neal. “The features ensure that we have high-definition, broadcast-quality video production in an easy-to-use format, while the price point helps us stay within our budgets, even with the addition of so many cameras."

Aside from wanting to upgrade its production capabilities to high definition, the tech team also needed a solution that was easy-to-use, as a majority of the cameras are operated by volunteers of the church. To address this, the church's production team relies on the cameras' built-in IP control features, especially for the remote zoom and camera setting adjustment capability.
