HQBlue director, producer finds satisfaction in an HD world


HQBlue's Aven Dawson uses JVC's JY-HD10 HD camcorder on a shoot in Mexico.

HQBlue's Aven Dawson is a progressive director and producer who has embraced high definition in large part because of JVC's JY-HD10 HD camcorder.

Dawson said the company has been extremely satisfied with the image quality produced from the camcorder. He said the JY-HD10 is the only HD camcorder in the market that has enabled HQBlue to produce programs in HD.

The compact camcorder is a single CCD professional high-definition camcorder offering 1.18-million-pixel, 16:9 performance.

It records from the CCD at HD resolution 720p and will output both 720p and upconverted 1080i signals - with an MPEG-2 HD compression - directly onto standard-size MiniDV cassettes. The camcorder also incorporates a standard mode with 4:3 compression of MPEG-2 at 480/60p or 480/60i.

During post-production, footage is edited to an MPEG-2 transfer stream using Ulead Media Studio Pro 7 HD on a PC, and de-multiplexed using Lumiere HD for Apple's Final Cut Pro 4.5 HD.
