U-T TV Adopts Integrated Media Strategy, Relies on JVC ProHD Cameras for News Coverage
The TV station is using six GY-HM790 ProHD cameras for ENG and studio work.
WAYNE, NJ ? JVC Professional Products Company, a division of JVC Americas Corp., today announced that U-TV TV, the in-house television station for U-T San Diego, the newspaper previously known as The San Diego Union-Tribune, is using six GY-HM790 ProHD cameras for ENG and studio work.
Manchester Lynch Integrated Media, which purchased the Tribune in late 2011, built the U-T TV operation from scratch earlier this year. Housed on an upper floor of the U-T San Diego facility, the studio houses three sets and is used to produce 12 hours of live programming each day.
?Our studio was built with an open floor plan and actually is in the middle of the U-T San Diego news floor,? explained Paul Forgét, U-T TV production supervisor. ?Part of our morning set looks directly into that newsroom as the background. It?s an appropriate backdrop for the blending of print, television, and Web, which exemplifies the new strategy of an integrated media platform.?
