JVC Unveils GY-DV5100E 3-CCD Pro-DV CamcorderFeatures enhanced image quality and improved operational functions (January 17, 2005)
JVC Professional Europe Ltd introduces the GY-DV5100E 12-bit ADC Professional DV camcorder featuring enhanced image quality and improved operational functions.
Using a newly developed 24-bit digital signal processor (DSP), the signal-to-noise ratio has been significantly increased enabling the camcorder to produce clearer and more distinct images.
The new JVC GY-DV5100E camcorder also takes advantage of an integral 12-bit analog-to-digital converter to provide fine color detail throughout its 400 percent dynamic range.
The three-CCD camcorder provides increased clarity and has the ability to produce details and colors in both shaded and highlighted areas. It is ideal for use in, professional production electronic news gathering and videography.
Improved image quality
The new DSP function gives variable detail enhancement with the addition of three user-selectable settings for contour frequency giving the optimum level of image detail (or edge) enhancement.
The DSP offers users a single-line read-out ?High Res Frame Mode. This mode can be switched on to give an increased vertical resolution for still macro shots and can be used to give a cinematographic look and feel to video recordings.
Where widescreen is a requirement, the DSP also enables electronic picture squeeze. 16:9 pictures can be captured in standard definition without having to acquire an anamorphic lens adaptor.
Added features and extended durability
The new camcorder is easily integrated with the optional DR-DV5000E hard disk recorder. Providing all of the advantages of tapeless acquisition, the unit allows the direct-to-edit (DTE) functionality from the files created by the camera. The DR-DV5000E has a disk capacity of 80GB and docks to the rear of the camera via the 52-pin interface connector and works in conjunction with the camera's CPU.
The rear panel incorporates the DV input select switch (for when docked with the 52-pin DR-DV5000E) and two XLR audio sockets (for added flexibility).
Enhanced recording performance
The auto error correction system operates on a frame-by-frame basis to assure accurate image error compensation under any conditions. Accurate and consistent suppression of block noise and reliable, professional standard performance at all times is achieved. Newly designed video heads also improve recording performance.
To add to its appeal, a standard GY-DV5100E camcorder package, with 1.5 b/w viewfinder, includes a new Fujinon lens, model S17 x 6.6BRM and is list priced at just £4,950 (7,420) plus VAT.
Nick Fletcher, Marketing Communication Manager at JVC Professional Europe Ltd comments, ?The addition of this new camcorder to the existing range of JVC camcorders clearly offers our customers three benefits: improved image quality, enhanced features and extended reliability. JVC has certainly reached a high point in picture performance with the GY-DV5100. As long as theres a demand for professional SD recordings, then the GY-DV5100 will be there to provide the ultimate in high resolution and affordable digital recording solutions.
