JVC Offers Free Upgrade for HD MPEG-2 Encoder
Customers who buy the DM-JV600U before December 2004 can get a free 4:2:2 upgrade worth $5,000.
Introduced at NAB2004, the DM-JV600U is being used for HD satellite backhaul and contribution as well as ENG and electronic field production (EFP).
"The DM-JV600U is already a popular cost-effective encoder designed for ProHD D-VHS ASI mastering, reviewing dailies and press and preview screenings. With the 4:2:2 option, the encoder is now ideal for higher-end content and satellite backhaul," said Lawrence Librach, JVC's assistant vice president Business Development Broadcast and Entertainment.
The multiformat encoder accepts SMPTE-292M HD-SDI signals and encodes them into HD MPEG-2 format and provides a transport stream (TS) through its two DVB-ASI interfaces.
