WAYNE, N.J.—Despite being billed as the podcast studio, Houston Community College TV has recently installed JVC equipment into one of its studios for streamlined productions. The new studio space now features three JVC-KY PZ100 robotic PTZ network video production cameras and the ProHD Studio 4000 live production and streaming studio.
With most of the school’s productions being one-on-one interviews or talking head segments, the JVC equipment allows for such productions to be handled by a one-person technical crew.
The ProHD Studio 4000 offers a complete control studio in a compact form and includes an integrated production switcher and internal CG. Programs are directly recorded to the ProHD Studio 4000, with audio feeds delivered to the system through USB.
The JVC-KY PZ100 cameras are mounted on C-stands with Matthews gimbal heads and controlled with a JVC RM-LP100 remote camera controller and virtual CCU. The RM-LP100 features a joystick and zoom rocker for precise camera movements, as well as a 7-inch touchscreen panel to control camera groups, presets and camera settings.
In addition, two new JVC 24-inch LCD monitors were added to the studio.
The studio space is used by HCC students, for a series focused on veterans and interviews for a project related to the school’s 50th anniversary.
