ProVideoCoalition has coverage of a few JVC announcements from IBC. JVC will be launching an add-on for its HD200 and HD250 cameras which adds a single SXS slot recording in some sort of XDCam format. They’ve also launched a JVC branded version of the Firestore FS-5.
It’s pretty exciting to think about the possibility of other manufacturers adopting the SXS format. It’d be nice to see prices come down further on the cards, and more flexibility to move between devices.
By the way, anyone got a Focus Enhancements deathwatch yet? The stock’s down to 7 cents a share… if I had $6 million, I could buy the whole company!
