JVC announces ProHD Compact Studio System for JVC ProHD handheld camcorder
JVC today announced its ProHD Compact Studio solution, which configures the GY-HM150 ProHD handheld camcorder for a studio environment using two new accessories, the HZ-HM150VZR ProHD remote lens control and the DT-X71 ProHD monitor. Specifically designed for the JVC GY-HM150 by VariZoom, the new HZ-HM150VZR plugs into the 3.5mm remote connector on the right side of the camcorder. It offers professional-style zoom control via a wide sweep variable rocker. It also provides focus and iris adjustment, as well as start/stop operation. Beyond typical studio setups, the HZ-HM150VZR is ideal for operating the GY-HM150 when it is mounted to a jib, crane, or boom.
The new DT-X71 Series of portable seven-inch AC/DC ProHD monitors includes three models with scaled I/O options and adjustable 16:9/4:3 display for specific system operation needs. The LCD monitors produce 1024×600 resolution with a 160-degree viewing angle and 900:1 contrast ratio, plus they include front and rear dual tally lights and safe mark display. When mounted to the JVC GY-HM150, the DT-X71 serves as a full-size studio camera monitor. Introduced last fall, the JVC GY-HM150 ProHD handheld camcorder is built to handle demanding news and production environments. With its 3-CCD imagers and built-in Fujinon 10:1 HD zoom lens, the GY-HM150 records full HD 1080p, 1080i, and 720p (as well as 480i SD) at a variety of frame and bit rates to non-proprietary SDHC and SDXC media cards.
