Vice President – Broadcast Sales

Hi and welcome to the JVC Broadcast website. We’re delighted you’re here and like to share the reasons why so many broadcasters have chosen JVC for their ENG and studio applications. Of course the picture quality of a camera is number one on the list of items to be considered when moving to new equipment.  But, with today’s cameras, it’s more than picture quality.  Workflow is mostly what differentiates ENG cameras, and JVC is leading the industry with an IP based workflow that enables broadcasters to be first on-air, and first on-line with breaking news.


JVC technology used to produce our latest ProHD broadcast cameras predates back to the very first affordable HD camera produced by JVC. Introduced in June 2003 the JY-HD10 Camcorderrevolutionary JY-HD10U camcorder utilized high quality MPEG2 encoding and native 1280×720 resolution. The development of this advanced technology was nurtured by customers with broadcast needs and a vision of the future economic reality broadcasters were facing with the transition to HD. Our customers today, benefit from nearly 10 years of product development of MPEG2 and smaller advanced image processors that have developed beyond expectation. Today MPEG2 is utilized in ENG/EFP cameras from JVC, Sony and Canon and supported by leading editing manufacturers including Apple, AVID, Adobe and Edius. JVC’s vision and years of experience have provided the basis for todays advanced JVC ProHD cameras that have been adopted by the top broadcasting groups and stations throughout the United States.




First on-air, First on-line  is the nexus that brings JVC ProHD value to our broadcast customers. Our unique IP based workflow allows news crews to stream live content from a breaking news story directly to air, or to a website while recording a full HD file for later editing and broadcast.  Files can be uploaded to the station directly from a JVC field camera giving the broadcaster a competitive advantage over other stations in the market.


Our ProHD Broadcaster is a IP hub that allows multiple cameras to stream to a single ingest point, and then be routed to various decoders, and even to other stations within the group.
