HAND-HELD PROFESSIONAL HD CAMCORDER
ORLANDO, FL (June 2, 2003) — JVC PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTS COMPANY announced today that it has begun shipping the industry’s first affordable high definition (HD) camcorder, the JY-HD10U. The general availability of the JY-HD10U is a part of a larger JVC initiative dubbed “HD for the Masses,” a series of currently available and upcoming products that bring professional-level HD shooting, editing, recording and playback to a wide range of professionals within the broadcast industry.
"With the release of the JY-HD10U camcorder, we have taken a solid step forward with our ‘HD for the Masses’ initiative,” said Robert Mueller, executive vice president of JVC PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTS COMPANY. “It affirms our HD strategy and our belief that high definition capabilities are not limited to the major broadcasters and large production houses. Affordable, high-quality HD products such as the JY-HD10U will be a major thrust in rapidly expanding the market for HD programming.”
The JY-HD10U camcorder and accompanying non-linear editing (NLE) software work together with the JVC professional HD D-VHS system and JVC HDTV display products, making it possible for producers to cost-effectively create and distribute programming in stunning HDTV. Users of high-end HD systems can also economically distribute their programming using the JVC Pro-HD D-VHS system, which provides a level of quality indistinguishable from their original masters. Using the JVC upconverter, even producers using standard definition can capitalize on the superior visual performance that HD playback brings to their material.
