EBU approval for latest JVC cameras
The recently released GY-HM600 and wi-fi-enabled GY-HM650 camcorders are now fully EBU-approved for broadcast use for news and journalism. The EBU recommendations are designed to provide a common set of performance standards for broadcast production across Europe.
The testing of the GY-HM600 and GY-HM650 cameras was carried out by Alan Roberts in accordance with EBU guidelines.
Gustav Emrich, European product manager for JVC Professional, comments: “We are delighted that the GY-HM600 series has easily met the EBU standard requirements for broadcast journalism. We are pleased with the reports for these cameras which were designed to be innovative new tools for mobile news gathering in challenging situations. JVC believe that the 600 series cameras are a big step forward for both us and our customers in terms of ease of use and versatility, as well as features and functions, and EBU approval is a validation of this.”
