JVC Model: GY-HD100U
On the red carpet and behind-the-scenes at the hottest entertainment, sports and fashion events throughout Los Angeles, New York and London, WireImage is the leading digital photographic press agency and wire service for the entertainment industry. They supply high-quality photography and interviews to the world’s professional media on a daily basis.
WireImage’s video division, WireImageVideo, utilizes JVC’s GY-HD100s for their A-roll interviews and B-roll footage. Recently, WireImage was the official videographer/photographer of the 2006 Sundance Film Festival. WireImage shot all the festivals’ events and attending talent in HD using the GY-HD100U camcorders, producing top quality imagery to its worldwide client base.
“We looked at every camera in this space and JVC’s ProHD camera was the only one designed for both ENG and studio shooting. It provides amazing picture quality without any visual loss and we can even pull stills from the HD footage. Our videographers love this camera because of its form factor and flexible lens options. The GY-HD100 truly is a professional camera that answers all WireImage Video’s needs,” said Justin Kahn, co-founder and VP of WireImage.
With access to all the award shows, premieres, film festivals and concerts, WireImage provides premium content to its clients, which is why we need a professional camera like the GY-HD100U. WireImage recently provided video footage from the Sundance Film Festival, the Toronto International Film Festival, Olympus Fashion Week and for NFL Kickoff.
Kahn added, “The GY-HD100U enables us to deliver the highest quality footage to our clients, which is the most important thing in our business. The GY-HD100U shoots true progressive -- delivering 30 solid frames per second of fabulous looking video. We’re thrilled with the work we’re creating.”
