HD250 Color & When?

Does anyone know what the color resolution will be on the SD & HD video outputs, 4:1:1, 4:2:2?
And when will it be available with the CCU Dock? I really want to see what the camera looks like in a studio environment.

Dan,

The output of the GY-HD250 are 4:2:2, for the analog outs, and the SDI/ HD-SDI out. For the compressed firewire out, it's 4:1:1 in the DV mode, and 4:2:0 i nthe HDV mode. Of course, most people would use the analog outs or SDI/HD-SDI out for a live application.

The camera is available now in a studio configuration. When you add the KA-HD250U Studio adaptor to the GY-HD250U. you now have a studio-type camera head. Then you can add CCU, studio viewfinder, rear lens controls, ect. Please see these web pages for details:

At DV Expo in LA a month ago, JVC had one of the 250 cameras with the complete studio setup, including pedstal, on camera monitor, teleprompter, JVC zoom and focus controllers, etc. etc. etc.

It all looked great and worked well. Some people may prefer a different zoom controller, rather than a rocker arm type like the JVC, but all in all the setup was quite impressive.

I don't have any, but somebody might have photos of this setup from this or another show.

Will the CCU for the camera send out an HD signal? Or would I have to run a set of cables caring the HD signal from the camera? And if so what would be the max distance that the camera could push?

Does anyone have or know of a place where I could see a screen grab of the camera. I want to see it in a studio environment. Or even a good church setting.

Thanx for all your help.

I know a lot of sports guys prefer using a manual crank-style controller, but I doubt many of them will be using this camera. Or what kind of controller are you talking about?

I don't have a particular one in mine. However, for a studio setup, depending on what is being shot and how the zoom is used, the JVC rocker zoom may not be adquate or give enough control, and, yes, a hand crank zoom handle (if one is available) might be better. If you are doing slow zooms on products or zooming in or out to a set spot while pushing the pedestal across the floor, the delicate rocker zoom might be a little hard to handle and get to the exact wanted zoom quickly.

Or the standard varizoom VZ-PGF might be better in some setups (with the option to control speed separately from the rocker). http://www.varizoom.com/products/controls/vzpgf.html

I don't have a specific choice but just think this is something to look at tryout because it can greatly affect the result. I have always seen the crank style on studio cameras where I have worked (e.g. NBC) on on the cameras used to shoot stage productions for PBS.

Perhaps someone with experience as a studio camera operator can comment.

Dan,

There are three ways to do a full studio config / CCU package with this camera: Multi-core, Camplex (coax and fiber), and Telecast Fiber.

With the multi-core option, you would have to run a separate coax cable for the HD-SDI signal. This is not that big of a deal - you just cable-tie a coax cable along side the multi-core. This solution is good for up to 330 feet. This is the lowest cost colution.

With the Camplex option, you use a cable that is a combination of coax and fiber in one jacket. The coax carries all of the SD signals, CCU commands, genlock, intercom, and power. The fiber carries the HD signal. This solution is good for up to 1400 feet, and it adds about $8,000 to the package price per camera.

With the Telecast fiber, you use a SMPTE fiber cable for all signals. This soultion is good for up to 5000 meters, and it adds $14,000 to the package price per camera if you have local power, and $21,000 per camera if you want remote power.

The many possible configurations of the GY-HD250U in studio can be quite complex. I suggest that you contact an authorized JVC Pro reseller in your area for exact packages and pricing.

You can also arrange a demo by contacting your local JVC Pro representative. If you need to need to know who this is, please send me a private e-mail.

There is a picture of the studio config shown in our color brochure. Here is the link:
