JVC Professional launches GY-HM790 camera and 24" 3D production monitor (2/9/2010)
New technology for the 3D and studio markets at IBC2010.
The new GY-HM790 camera is the flagship of the ProHD product line, offering new features for both studio and ENG applications, while implementing popular features from established ProHD models. In the studio, its modular design creates a cleaner integration for multicore or fibre-based production. In the field, its three 1/3-inch CCDs allow a lighter, more compact form factor for better manoeuvrability. It produces 1920x1080 images and can record in 1080i, 720p, and even SD (576i) for operations that have not yet made the move to HD. The camera records to solid-state memory at 35 Mbps (HQ mode/variable bit rate) or 19 Mbps/25 Mbps (SP mode/constant bit rate).
With broadcasters facing an expensive transition to digital television, and consumers wanting more high definition programming, JVC identified the need for affordable HD production equipment for local, regional and national network news. Since the inception of the ProHD product line, JVC has had a clear vision for ProHD and has remained true to its objectives. All three cameras in the ProHD range (the hand-held GY-HM100, the shoulder-mounted GY-HM700 and the new GY-HM790 studio/ENG camera) use industry standard long-GOP compression with a low bit rate, creating manageable data streams and file sizes. They record to inexpensive SDHC solid-state media cards, and customers love the convenience, reliability and low cost. The GY-HM100 and GY-HM700 have again been chosen by IBC TV News for filming this year’s event; the multi-media nature of IBC TV News means that a quick shoot-to-edit workflow is essential and was a key factor in their choice of camera.
3D is one of the hot topics at IBC2010 and JVC again is leading the industry with its GD-463D10 46-inch 3D LCD monitor, which was introduced last year. It has already been installed in several production and post-production facilities, and has become an indispensible tool for medical facilities and government agencies. JVC is also unveiling a new 24" 2D and 3D professional-grade production monitor, the DT-3D24G1. Equipped with proven technology from the DT-V Series of monitors, the new 3D monitor accepts and processes signals from dual camera systems, stereo-rigs and coded Side-by-Side and Line-by-Line 3D signals. Uniquely, the monitor has a built-in 3D scale function that allows you to measure the amount of binocular disparity by pixels or percentage in real time. This is critical to broadcast delivery specifications, where they are very strict with positive and negative parameters. The 3D production monitor can also be battery operated for true field use. IBC will also feature the IF-2D3D1 3D Image Processor, which serves as a 3D L/R mixer for real-time monitoring of 3D content on location and works as a real-time 2D-to-3D converter in post.
A leader in professional flat-panel displays and D-ILA projectors, JVC is spotlighting its new DT-V G Series of professional LCD monitors, which feature 3G and dual-link HD/SD-SDI (1080p/50 4:4:4) inputs. Designed to provide accurate colour reproduction for critical image evaluation, G Series monitors feature a built-in waveform monitor with over-level function, vectorscope with selectable size and position, advanced audio level meter, and LTC/VITC time code support. A new, non-glossy LCD panel provides improved picture quality, while JVC's 10-bit 1080p processing ensures the highest picture quality with less than one frame of latency. In addition, JVC are introducing two cost-effective broadcast studio monitors, the new DT-R Series. These are multi-format monitors with essential features for studio applications, providing high picture quality in a simple, reliable and robust design. Available in both 17" and 24" models, the monitors feature IPS (In-Plane-Switching) LCD panels and 10-bit signal-processing, delivering excellent detail, high contrast and brilliant colour reproduction. The monitors, together with the KM-H3000 digital production switcher and its new multiviewer function, will feature on board the ‘JVC Creation Truck’, which takes centre stage at this year’s show.
Finally, JVC has expanded its line of professional combo recording decks with the new SR-HD1500 and SR-HD1250 Blu-ray disc and HDD recorders. These standalone Blu-ray recorders feature a built-in hard disk drive for easy duplication and disc authoring without a PC. Advanced MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 (H.264) encoding provides support for HD and SD sources, and a built-in format converter can downconvert HD content for recording to a standard DVD. The units support BD-R or BD-RE (erasable) Blu-ray discs.
