JVC introduces KH-F870U CMOS HD POV camera

JVC Professional Products Company has announced the launch of the KH-F870U HD-CMOS high-definition (HD) camera.

JVC's newest box-style HD camera uses three next-generation 2/3-inch CMOS chips to deliver full 1080i or 720p (switchable) HDTV output. The KH-F870U provides uncompromising HDTV performance for a wide range of applications including point-of-view (POV) for broadcast television, live conferencing, speaker enlargement, remote sporting events and distance learning.

The KH-F870U features three 2/3-inch 2.1 megapixel ProCam-HD CMOS image sensors, which provide 1936x1086 image capture area, on-chip 12-bit ADC and a signal-to-noise ratio of 54dB. The KH-F870U is interlace or progressive switchable, offering 1900x1080i or 720p/60 HDTV specifications and a high dynamic range of more than 68dB.

Offering a high data rate -75MHz at full HD resolution- the camera offers low-power consumption levels, about 20 percent that of a comparable CCD, which is similar to those of standard definition cameras.

Three highly integrated CMOS image sensors give the KH-F870U extremely high sensitivity, negligible blooming, no visible smear and low fixed pattern-noise. CMOS chips avoid skew lag, where an image does not have a true vertical appearance on the screen from top to bottom. By accessing the pixels directly, the KH-F870U lets the videographer quickly pan the camera without skewing the images. For high-end production on HDTV screens, CMOS imagers correct the skewing flaw, producing more natural movements and a more natural image. The camera provides two SMPTE 292M HD-SDI outputs.

Eleven FCC Scenarios for The 600 MHz Band Plan
I suspect that the estimated $44 billion of auction proceeds do not take into account the fact that some spectrum the FCC will buy cannot be resold because it must be used as guard intervals in the 600 MHz band plan.~ Charles W. Rhodes
