JVC unveils GY-DV5100 12-bit ADC Pro-DV camcorder

January 10, 2005

JVC has introduced the GY-DV5100 12-bit ADC Pro-DV camcorder featuring enhanced image quality and improved operational functions.

The GY-DV5100U three-CCD camcorder is intended for electronic newsgathering and professional production. Using a newly developed 24-bit digital signal processor that produces higher resolution images with dramatically less visible noise than previous models, the camera takes advantage of an integral 12-bit analog-to-digital converter to provide color details throughout its 400 percent dynamic range. With increased clarity and ability to produce details and colors in both shaded and highlighted areas, the GY-DV5100U delivers images previously found only in field production cameras.

The camera is also tightly integrated with JVC's Direct-to-Edit (DTE) disc recording module, the DR-DV5000U. DTE provides all of the advantages of tapeless acquisition with the added benefit of being able to edit directly from the files created by the camera. The optional DR-DV5000U attaches to the rear of the camera without cables via a built-in 52-pin connector and works in conjunction with the camera's CPU.
