Florida broadcaster relies on ProHD cameras for ENG

Waterman Broadcasting in Fort Myers, FL, is using JVC Professional ProHD cameras for field news acquisition at the company's ABC and NBC affiliate stations.

According to Dan Billings, Waterman Broadcasting director of engineering and technology, the broadcaster was attracted to the GY-HD100U because it could record an MPEG file to tape that could be directly ingested into the Canopus editing system.

Waterman Broadcasting uses the GY-HD100U to capture footage in both HD and SD and currently broadcasts in SD. According to Billings, capturing footage in HD and saving to SD provides improved picture quality while saving disk storage space.

Waterman Broadcasting Corporation owns WBBH-TV (NBC) and WZVN-TV (ABC) in Fort Meyers and WVIR-TV (NBC) in Charlottesville, VA.
