EXPERIENCE CHURCH.TV IMPROVES MULTI-CAMERA PRODUCTION WITH JVC GY-HM600 PROHD CAMERA
Posted on Wednesday, October 23, 2013
WAYNE, NJ (October 23, 2013) – JVC Professional Products Company, a division of JVC Americas Corp., today announced Experience Church.tv, based in Puyallup, Wash., is using a GY-HM600 ProHD handheld camcorder as part of a multi-camera HD production that provides image magnification (I-MAG) for its live congregation during services and streaming video for online viewers.
Known for its high-energy live services, Experience Church.tv embraces AV technology as a tool to help share its message with its local congregation and its ministry around the world. The church purchased the GY-HM600 in May and has mounted the lightweight camera on a jib for dynamic moving images. The camera’s built-in BNC connector for SDI output provides a reliable connection for jib use.
“For us, it was about the lens quality and the size of the camera to use on our jib,” explained Dennis Cummins, pastor. “It’s a huge lens in a compact frame. That keeps the weight down for use on the jib.”
The church’s multi-camera setup also includes two Grass Valley LDK 4000s on sticks, one handheld JVC GY-HD250, and two GoPro cameras, which are positioned on stage to highlight musicians in cutaway shots. “I was amazed how good the JVC looks in comparison to the LDK4000s,” Cummins noted. “The colors are rich and vibrant, and it reacts well to our lit stage. We purchased one, but will be adding to it soon. With the quality of the lens, we are looking to use it in more places.”
