JVC has introduced the GY-DV5100 12-bit ADC Pro-DV camcorder featuring enhanced image quality and improved operational functions. The three-CCD camcorder is intended for electronic newsgathering and professional production. Using a newly developed 24-bit digital signal processor that produces higher resolution images with dramatically less visible noise than previous models, the camera takes advantage of an integral 12-bit analog-to-digital converter to provide color details throughout its 400 percent dynamic range. The GY DV5100U provides increased clarity and the ability to produce details and colors in both shaded and highlighted areas.
The camcorder is also tightly integrated with JVC's Direct-to-Edit (DTE) disc recording module, the DR-DV5000U. DTE provides all of the advantages of tapeless acquisition, with the added benefit of being able to edit directly from the files created by the camera. The optional DR-DV5000U attaches to the rear of the camera without cables using a built-in 52-pin connector and works in conjunction with the camera's CPU.
