JVC unveils its new hand-held professional HD camcorder
JVC has launched a new hand-held camcorder with full HD recording capabilities: the JY-HD10U.
The JY-HD10U provides format-conversion while playing back through its analog component outputs.
The JY-HD10U (1 CCD, 1.18 million pixel, 16:9), enables broadcasters at all levels to enter the HD production market.
With the JY-HD10U, users can record in both HD and standard definition in three resolution modes; HD at 720/30p and SD at 480/60p or 480/60i. The two progressive modes (720/30p, 480/60p) use native 16:9 from the CCD with MPEG-2 compression, and the standard mode (480/60i) is 4:3 with DV compression. All recording is on common MiniDV tape.
The JY-HD10U provides format-conversion while playing back through its analog component outputs. It can upconvert or downconvert into virtually any format, including 1080i, 720/30p, 480/60p, and 480/60i.
Utilizing MPEG-2 compression, the JY-HD10U provides the optimal balance between full bandwidth (1280x720 pixels) with negligible artifacts, and all within a modest 19Mbps data stream. Also included is a new nonlinear editing (NLE) software package that permits frame-accurate editing of the MPEG-2 footage.
