JVC is now shipping its HD camcorder, the JY-HD10U.
The JY-HD10U can upconvert or downconvert into virtually any format, including 1080i, 720/30p, 480/60p, and 480/60i, allowing users that shoot in HD to playback on any display with component inputs.
The JY-HD10U camcorder and accompanying NLE software work together with the JVC professional HD D-VHS system and JVC HDTV display products, making it possible for producers to create and distribute programming in HDTV. Users of high-end HD systems can also distribute their programming using the JVC Pro-HD D-VHS system.
The hand-held HD camcorder records in both HD and SD in three resolution modes: HD at 720/30p and SD at 480/60p or 480/60i. The two progressive modes (720/30p, 480/60p) use native 16:9 from the CCD with MPEG-2 compression, and the standard mode (480/60i) is 4:3 with DV compression. All recording is on common MiniDV tape.
The JY-HD10U can upconvert or downconvert into virtually any format, including 1080i, 720/30p, 480/60p, and 480/60i, allowing videographers that shoot in HD to playback on any display with component inputs.
Using MPEG-2 compression within a 19Mbps data stream, the JY-HD10U records full bandwidth (1280x720 pixels) with negligible artifacts. MPEG-2 is compatible with D-VHS for archiving and distribution; and in the 480/60p mode, for DVD mastering.
