Quincy Media is standardizing on ProHD and 4KCAM camcorders for news operations across its television broadcast stations, JVC Professional Video announced today.
The broadcaster owns and operates 22 television stations in seven states, including 19 that produce local news. The Quincy, Ill., -based media company is expected to buy about 200 JVC camcorders over the next two years, JVC said.
Quincy Media initially is ordering 31 of the cameras, including 12 GY-HM200s 4KCAM compact handheld camcorders which will be used by multimedia journalists, and GY-HM890s ProHD shoulder-mount camcorders for ENG, Brady Dreasler, corporate director of engineering for Quincy Media said.
“We needed to standardize on one brand for purchasing power and support. JVC has stayed close and supportive of Quincy Media as a customer, and their products fit exactly what we’re trying to accomplish,” Dreasler said.
