CNN TO REPLACE AGING,
TAPE-BASED DV CAMCORDERS WITH JVC PROHD
- WAYNE, NJ (November 17, 2010)
– JVC Professional Products Company today announced that CNN has
purchased 177 GY-HM100U ProHD camcorders, which JVC understands is
the first step in a process to replace hundreds of aging, tape-based
DV camcorders now in use throughout CNN’s global operations.
Additional cameras are expected to be purchased by CNN in 2011.
- A compact, handheld
3-CCD camcorder, the GY-HM100U records high definition video at 35
Mbps in the MPEG-2 format compatible with the XDCAM file-based
workflow used throughout CNN. The JVC camcorder records 1080i files
in the MP4 format directly onto SDHC memory cards.
- “The GY-HM100 ProHD
camcorder is well suited for a fast-paced newsgathering
organization,” said Larry Librach, JVC vice president, Broadcast
& Public Sector. “Its lightweight form factor, sturdy
solid-state recording, and high-quality imaging make it an ideal
complement to CNN's traditional shoulder-type ENG equipment.”
