JVC GY-DV550U Studio DV Camcorder

The GY-DV550U is perfect for broadcasters but priced within easy reach of webcasters, corporate studios, high schools, universities, cable access studios and churches. It has all of the features, performance and accessories expected from a CCU controllable camera, plus the ability to operate in an iso-cam environment. Add to that the fact that it works superbly as a standalone camcorder, and you have a JVC world's first. This is not just another camcorder with studio add-ons. The GY-DV550U is designed as a full bandwidth (800+ line) studio camera from the ground up! Plus, it's a full-blown ENG camcorder. Its recordings are compatible with DVCAM and DVCPRO, yet its performance is superior to any camera in its class. And in JVC tradition, we've priced the GY-DV550U well within the reach of our target customers, allowing them to Do More, Do it Better and for significantly less.
