BYU-Hawaii Says Aloha to Hitachi SK-HD1000

Brigham Young University-Hawaii purchased four Hitachi SK-HD1000 native 1080i HDTV studio/field production cameras to produce HD programming for its Website and BYU Television.

Sister colleges BYU (Utah), BYU-Hawaii, and BYU-Idaho all produce their own programming for BYU TV, and the universities acquired the Hitachi cameras to respond for increasing demand for HD fare.

The SK-HD1000 units—outfitted with five-inch black-and-white viewfinders and Canon HD lenses—are usually mounted on tripods in the campus TV studio.

BYU-Hawaii has used the Hitachi SK-HD1000 cameras to produce several Seasider men’s and women’s basketball games, which were streamed on its Website, as well as transferred in real-time as video over IP to BYU TV. The university will expand its game offerings in the fall to include Seasider women’s volleyball and men’s and women’s tennis.
