WIS-TV joins ranks of Raycom Media stations relying on GY-HD250s in new studio

WIS-TV, the Raycom Media-owned NBC affiliate in Columbia, SC, is the latest station in the broadcast group to upgrade its news production studio with new JVC GY-HD250 cameras, KA-HD250 studio adapters, remote control units and camera control units.

WIS-TV follows the HD conversion of Raycom stations WOIO-TV in Cleveland and WXIX-TV in Cincinnati, OH; WSFA-TV in Montgomery, AL; WAVE-TV in Louisville, KY; WAFB-TV in Baton Rouge, LA; WECT-TV in Wilmington, NC; WCSC-TV in Charleston, SC; WMC-TV in Memphis, TN; and WTVR-TV in Richmond, VA. All of the stations are using the GY-HD250 cameras as their primary studio cameras for news broadcasts.

According to group VP and CTO Dave Folsom, Raycom Media is pleased with the images produced by the JVC ProHD cameras. In some markets, the group has stations going up against competitors using more expensive cameras, but “it is not at all evident that the cameras we’re using are less expensive,” he said.

Raycom Media was looking for a camera that provided high-quality video imagery at a modest price, something that is particularly important when converting 30 stations to HD news, he said.

The broadcast group plans to upgrade its additional stations to HD with JVC ProHD.
