New York School Purchases JVC Camcorders
The New School, a university consisting of eight New York City area schools has purchased eight JVC GY-HD110U ProHD camcorders. The camcorders will be used in the school's Documentary Media Studies program.

"We looked at many different cameras and chose the GY-HD110 because we wanted to shoot in HD at 24fps progressive scan," said Dawnja Burris, associate chair, Department of Media Studies and Film at The New School. "The GY-HD110 allows our students to produce professional documentaries and integrates perfectly with our existing film equipment and our new digital editing lab."

The school's Documentary Media Studies program provides graduate level training in documentary filmmaking. Students are taught documentary history, theory and production techniques. They then produce, direct and edit original 30-minute documentaries.

Burris said that the JVC camera was the only model with all the features needed for student, and that the Fujinon lens and Anton Bauer battery pack were bonuses. The manually focusing lens was also cited as a plus feature by Burris, as it allows students to experience real world conditions.

The New School is located in the Greenwich Village section of Manhattan and has an enrollment of 9,300 undergraduate and graduate students and offered its first film course in 1926.
