The U.S. Coast Guard has standardized JVC Professional Products’ GY-HM100U ProHD camcorder for the Coast Guard’s public affairs program, JVC says in a written statement.

The Coast Guard purchased 20 GY-HM100U cameras during October 2010, which were distributed to public affairs offices, detachments, and training commands, JVC says. Public affairs specialists now use the camcorders for a variety of projects, including training videos, interviews, and B-roll footage of Coast Guard operations, the firm adds.

A compact, handheld 3-CCD camcorder with a built-in Fujinon 10x lens, the GY-HM100U records HD video (1080i, 720p, or 1080p) to dual non-proprietary SDHC memory cards, JVC says. In addition, with JVC’s native file recording technology, it can record in ready-to-edit file formats for Apple Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere (.MOV), as well as other NLE systems that are compatible with Sony XDCAM EX files (.MP4), the firm says.
