JVC INTRODUCES KA-AS790G ASI MODULE FOR GY-HM750U AND GY-HM790U PROHD CAMCORDERS

WAYNE, NJ – JVC Professional Products Company today introduced the new KA-AS790G ASI module, which provides a compressed MPEG-2 output that is ideal for microwave transmission and long cable runs for OB vans – no additional encoding required. The module attaches to the back of the GY-HM790U or new GY-HM750U ProHD camera without external wiring or adapters.

Both HD video and audio are compressed using the camera’s built-in encoder (running at either 19.7 or 35 Mbps), which creates an MPEG-2 signal and then provides lossless transcoding to DVB-ASI. The module outputs the live signal from the camera, even while recording, via a standard BNC connector. When the camera automatically detects the presence of the KA-AS790G module, it switches to low-latency mode.

“The KA-AS790G is another example of how our elegant modular approach brings added versatility to our ProHD camcorders. It’s a great tool for broadcasters that need a reliable way to uplink video from the field,? said Craig Yanagi, national marketing and brand manager, JVC Professional Products Company. “It also eliminates the need for an external encoder on location, which simplifies the transmission process and helps reduce clutter.?

With a list price of $3,500, the new KA-AS790G module will be available in February 2011 and be demonstrated at the 2011 NAB Show, which runs April 11-14 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev. (Booth C4314).
