Waterman Broadcasting Buys JVC’s GY-HD250 Cameras
Waterman Broadcasting has bought JVC’s GY-HD250 ProHD cameras for the station’s ABC affiliate, WZVN-TV in Fort Myers, Fla. They will be the station’s primary studio cameras.

“The GY-HD250 is the perfect choice for our ABC affiliate because of the camera’s native 720p format and the HD-SDI direct output,” said Dan Billings, director of engineering and technology at Waterman Broadcasting. “We also chose JVC because the GY-HD250 integrates well with our Telemetric robotics. The performance of the camera is truly amazing, especially at its price.”

Billings said that the WZVN-TV studio has “three floor televators, which can pan, tilt, raise and lower.” Its Telemetrics system also controls the cameras’ CCU functions.

“We have two additional GY-HD250s that we can lower from the ceiling using custom built Telemetrics hardware,” said Billings. “The GY-HD250s are perfect for our setup because they are compact and will allow us to move forward into HD with the ideal format for ABC.”

Billings said the cameras are frequently used on the water or during hurricanes because they are so lightweight and durable, and perform well in extreme weather conditions.
