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 more
