SMU TEACHING HD PRODUCTION VIA JVC & APPLE GEAR The Cinema-Television Division is located in the Umphrey Lee Building on the SMU campus and features dozens of Apple Final Cut Pro edit suites, plus graphics labs, digital audio editing and mixing suites, and screening rooms. David Sedman, director of technology and associate professor at the Meadows School, says the camera purchase was part of the school’s goal to transition to HD and solid-state media recording for a fully tapeless production workflow. Students are free to use the cameras, as well as the school’s video facilities, to produce movies, reality TV, documentaries, and other projects.

The GY-HM100 is a compact, handheld 3-CCD camcorder with a built-in Fujinon 10x lens. The GY-HM700 is a shoulder-mount model that ships with a Canon 14x zoom lens but features a 1/3-inch bayonet mount to accommodate additional lenses. Both camcorders feature native Final Cut Pro file recording to dual SDHC memory cards.
