THE NEW SCHOOL PURCHASES 8 GY-HD110 PRO
FOR DEPARTMENT OF MEDIA STUDIES AND FILM
Wayne, NJ (January 23, 2007) — JVC Professional
Products Company today announced that The New School, a university made up of 8
schools, located in New York City, has purchased eight ProHD GY-HD110Us for use
in the school’s new graduate certificate in Documentary Media Studies.
“The GY-HD110 allows our students to produce professional
documentaries and integrates perfectly with our existing film equipment and our
new digital editing lab,” said Dawnja Burris, Associate Chair, Department of
Media Studies and Film, The New School.
“We looked at many different cameras and chose the GY-HD110 because we wanted
to shoot in HD at 24fps progressive scan.
JVC’s camera was the only model with all these features plus the Fujinon
lens and Anton Bauer battery pack was a huge bonus.”
Media Studies program provides intensive, graduate-level training to aspiring
documentary filmmakers. Using New York
City as its laboratory, students learn about
documentary history, theory, and video and film production and then produce,
direct and edit an original 30-minute documentary. With just 20 students
enrolled each year, the program allows for extensive one-on-one instruction
from a core faculty of working professionals as well as renowned visiting
artists such as D.A. Pennebaker and Peter Davis.
“JVC is very excited
with the implementation of our ProHD professional video equipment at The New School,”
said Craig Yanagi, National Marketing Manager, Creation Products, JVC
Professional Products Company. “The Documentary Media Studies curriculum is
ideal for taking advantage of the synergy that has brought together the latest
in camera, lens and editing technology designed for HD independent
production. The experience gained from
using these tools can be immediately applied to their future careers as this
equipment is being used by production professionals today.”
Burris also commented on the camera’s manual lens. “Being fully manual and including back focus
is a very important feature to us; it enables our students to experience real
world lens work.”
