Aven Dawson opts for JVC JY-HD10 High Definition camcorder

Aven Dawson of HQBlue, a progressive director and producer who has enjoyed a distinguished career, has entered into the High Definition (HD) world with JVC's JY-HD10 high definition camcorder.
Dawson's impressive portfolio includes ultra high action programmes such as 'Cannonball Run', 'Bike Knights' and 'Terminal Velocity' and documentaries such as 'Children of the Aztec Kings'. Additionally, in association with Nigel Sheppard (PlaybackHD) he has filmed a behind the scenes collage of the Edinburgh Tattoo ceremony.
Dawson said: "We have been extremely satisfied with the spectacular image quality produced from the camcorder. I have specific and limited budgets to adhere to and, within these parameters, the JY-HD10 is the only HD camcorder in the market that has enabled our company to produce programmes in HD. With this camera users benefit from HD resolution at the same price as DV!"
Launched in to the European market in August 2003, the compact sized JY-HD10 is commonly known as the world's first affordable professional high definition camcorder. It has a single CCD (1.18 million pixel, 16:9) and can record at various resolution modes. It records from the CCD at HD resolution 720p and will output at both 720p and up-converted 1080i signals, with MPEG 2 HD compression, directly on to standard size Mini-DV cassettes, which is at the same mode of recording as standard definition mode. The camcorder also incorporates a standard mode with 4:3 compression of MPEG2 at 480/60p or 480/60i.
Dawson added: "We have found that the demand for HD content is certainly growing and it is becoming easier to sell HD content. I predict that HD is the future as I hold a strong belief that HD will eventually be the chosen format for broadcasters and in a timescale far nearer than expected. JVC have been smart enough to recognise this move in the market."
