Sinclair Broadcast Group Orders More Than 70 New JVC GY-HM890 ProHD Cameras with Built-In Live HD Transmission

(Wayne, New Jersey–March 24, 2014) JVC Professional Products Company, a division of JVC Americas Corp., today announced Sinclair Broadcast Group, one of the largest television broadcasting companies in the United States, has ordered more than 70 of its new GY-HM890 ProHD shoulder-mount cameras for local news operations. Introduced earlier this month, the GY-HM890 features a built-in streaming engine that allows live HD transmission directly from the camera.

Sinclair Broadcast Group, which already has almost 100 JVC ProHD cameras in the field at stations like WRGB in Albany, N.Y. (pictured), has ordered 70 of the new GY-HM890 cameras as the first phase of the company’s planned standardization on the camera for local ENG operations.
