WAYNE, NJ, April 5, 2010 – JVC Professional Products, a division of JVC U.S.A., will introduce the new flagship of its ProHD camcorder line, the GY-HM790, at the 2010 NAB Show in Las Vegas, Nev., April 12-15 (Booth C4314).

Plus, as a shoulder-mount camcorder, it delivers outstanding ENG and sports production performance with more features than ever.
The GY-HM790 features three 1/3-inch CCDs, which allow a lighter, more compact form factor for better maneuverability in the field and more flexibility with robotic camera control systems in the studio. It produces 1920×1080 images and can record in 1080i, 720p, and even SD (480i) for operations that have not yet made the move to HD. The camera records at 35 Mbps (HQ mode/variable bit rate) or 19 Mbps/25 Mbps (SP mode/constant bit rate). The camera ships with a Canon 14x zoom lens or without lens, as accommodates a variety of lenses with its 1/3-inch bayonet lens mount.
WAYNE, NJ, March 25, 2010 — Newport Television, which owns and operates 50 stations in 22 markets around the country, is upgrading its local broadcast news operations to high definition with JVC ProHD cameras for ENG and studio production. The station group is standardizing with GY-HM700 camcorders in the field and GY-HD250 cameras configured for studio use.
Based in Kansas City, Mo., Newport has 14 stations supporting local news operations. According to Dione Rigsby, vice president and director of engineering, Newport began purchasing JVC cameras in late 2008. Four stations have already been fully equipped with new cameras, and the transition is nearly finished for four other stations. Rigsby expects to have the company-wide conversion to JVC complete by 2011.
WAWS in Jacksonville, Fla., WKRC in Cincinnati, WOAI in San Antonio, and KTVX in Salt Lake City have a full complement of GY-HD250 cameras for studio production and GY-HM700 camcorders for ENG use. Each station has at least four GY-HD250s and 13 GY-HM700s. Stations currently upgrading to JVC include WHAM in Rochester, N.Y., KOKI in Tulsa, Okla., KLRT in Little Rock-Pine Bluff, Ark., and KGET in Bakersfield, Calif.
