WSET-TV Delivers Local HD News with JVC ProHD Cameras

WAYNE, NJ – WSET-TV, the ABC affiliate in Roanoke-Lynchburg, Va. (DMA #66), has transitioned to local HD news with new ProHD cameras from JVC Professional Products Company, a division of JVC Americas Corp. The station recently purchased eight GY-HM790Us and eight GY-HM750Us, which will be used for studio and ENG work.

Affiliated with Arlington, Va.-based Allbritton Communications Company, WSET-TV is one six Allbritton stations that is standardizing on JVC ProHD cameras for studio and ENG work. The new cameras are part of an overall transition to local HD news production for all stations in the group.

This summer, WSET-TV connected three GY-HM790U cameras via fiber optic cable in the studio, avoiding the need for triax and additional cable bundles. “It was a huge quality upgrade for us in our studio,” said K.C. Spiron, WSET-TV director of operations and engineering. “We get plenty of power to run the monitors we need and it works well.”

In September, WSET-TV starting shooting ENG footage exclusively with its new ProHD camcorders. Spiron said the shooters quickly embraced the use of non-proprietary SDHC media cards and JVC’s native file recording technology, which provides ready-to-edit footage for the station’s Adobe Premiere CS5.5 NLE workstations.

“They love the ease of use and the flexibility. Focus Assist is a big help,” Spiron added. “From an engineering perspective, the quality is very good and they are very easy to configure. We were still tape based until this switch, so this has vastly improved our workflow. We use the JVC ProHD Clip Manager [software] for logging as well.”

With a lightweight, shoulder-mount design, the GY-HM750U delivers outstanding 1920×1080 images and can record HD footage in 720p, 1080p, and 1080i, as well as SD footage (480i). Ideal for ENG news, sports, and other location shoots, it offers the industry’s fastest shoot-to-edit workflow by recording native HD or SD footage in ready-to-edit file formats on low-cost SDHC memory cards. Plus, a new feature allows simultaneous recording to both SDHC cards for instant backup or client copy.
