Gannett Broadcasting standardizes on Sony XDCAM EX for ENG
Gannett Broadcasting is standardizing its news field acquisition operations with Sony’s XDCAM EX solid-state memory camcorders as its primary ENG technology.
The group will roll out Sony shoulder-mount EX camcorders across each of its stations, including a combination of Sony’s PMW-350 2/3in and PMW-320 1/2in shoulder-mount cameras as well as the PMW-EX1R and HXR-NX5U handheld camcorders.
The first Gannett station to convert to the Sony technology was KUSA in Denver; the next to convert are Republic Media in Phoenix, WLTV/WJXX in Jacksonville, FL, and KSDK in St. Louis.
