SANTA MONICA, Calif. — The new Center for Media and Design at Santa Monica College has a new design itself.
The production studio at the college will feature three JVC ProHD GY-HM890s paired with JVC FS-790 ProHD fiber-optic system modules, which connect directly to the camera body via a hidden 68-pin connector. Each camera is mounted on a Cartoni pedestal and is equipped with a CueScript prompter.
Gail Fetzer, associate professor, said the cameras will be used to teach multicamera production, with students producing talk shows, music videos and other content that is shared on YouTube and Facebook.
“They’re awesome,” said Brad Lemonds, media coordinator for media production. “I wouldn’t expect any different. I wanted something that would deliver bang for the buck and hold up for 10 years, and that’s why I picked JVC.”
