Hi All,

 

I will be shooting HDV with the JVC GY-HD111E. Does anyone know if the camera outputs SD while recording HD?

 

Thanks!

Hi Chirs,

 

If I remember correctly, the JVC HD line has a built in downconverter for composite or component SD output. You can set the output to auto / composite / component within the menus.

Chris,

 

I checked with my JVC sales rep here and while recording in HD, he said that Composite is SD and Component is HD. I would double check but that's what I seem to remember. I was not flying it so I really didn't have to much hands on... It was on a short I DP'd.

Thanks,

 

I've had it confirmed now too. So, in theory, it should be OK. Of course, in theory, there's there's no difference between theory and practice, but in practice, there is.

 

Whatever, I can always just point-and-shoot.

Chris-

 

I've got the JVC GY-HD110, same thing as yours, US Version. You can have all of your settings set to record in HDV, then just plug in a composite (RCA) cable into the top (yellow) Video/Y Output, and it will deliver an SD output signal.

In the menu, you have to select whether you want it to be "squeezed" or "letterboxed"(preferred)

If you wanted to output in HD, you would simply get a set of RGB HD cables and plug them into the corresponding outputs on the camera.
