Miami Dolphins produce 'Game Day Live' with JVC camcorders
This season the Miami Dolphins have used a variety of JVC’s ProHD gear to produce its “Game Day Live” sports show and several JVC HD100 series cameras to capture fan action in the parking lots and throughout the stadium. To do this the Dolphins purchased several GY-HD250 cameras as well as the company’s DM-JV600 video encoders to provide 720p HD video to its internal TV network of more than 850 video monitors in the stadium.
For the Dolphins live in-studio HD broadcast of “Game Day Live,” the GY-HD250s are set up in a studio configuration with JVC’s KA-HD250U studio adapter kit, which is filmed at Dolphin Stadium’s Sprint Fantasy Lounge. All the video footage that is recorded and broadcast live for game day is also used on the Dolphins Internet site.
The new “Game Day Live” studio configuration was designed and installed by Videoscope, a Miami-based broadcast and professional A/V dealer and systems integrator specializing in professional sports broadcast HD solutions.
The video crew records on tape when roaming the stadium and transmits the video images back to the stadium control room for processing and use in the game on the video screens and internal video network.
The Dolphins have been using JVC ProHD 100 series cameras since last season and also used them during Super Bowl XLI and FedEx Orange Bowl.
