VC Professional Products Company, a division of JVC Americas Corp., today announced that Baltimore’s Loyola University Maryland has completed a three-year transition to HD production for its Communication Department, which is built around a variety of JVC ProHD cameras.
Loyola has one GY-HM150 and four GY-HM100 handheld ProHD camcorders, which are used for broadcast journalism courses and Film Club projects. Three GY-HM790 cameras, purchased last summer, are used mostly as studio cameras, while three GY-HM750 cameras, purchased in February 2012, are used as ENG cameras in advanced classes as well as for community service productions. The department is planning to purchase six more JVC cameras during the 2012-2013 school year.
“We were very impressed with the performance of the GY-HM790 camera in the studio and purchased additional GY-HM750 cameras for field productions,” explained Herbert Jay Dunmore, television operations manager. “The cameras are very user friendly, and the similarity of menu structure allows for a smooth transition between models.”
