Every monitor offered by J/KAM will be JVC’s
J/KAM Digital recently converted its entire supply to DT-V Series field/studio monitors from JVC Professional Video, a division of JVCKENWOOD USA Corporation. With more than 20 years of experience offering rental, edit suites and technical support services, J/KAM’s clients range from network television and streaming to feature film production.
According to the press release, J/KAM chose JVC monitors based on the range of applications, outstanding company support and affordable price point: “Over the years, we’ve come to realize that an important piece of the editing workflow is having a reliable monitor — specifically one with color accuracy,” said Erik Beauchamp, CTO, J/KAM Digital Editing Solutions. “This is critical because footage is shot very systematically. It’s then processed in a daily’s facility with a color grader, which applies a certain look to a production, and subsequently goes to the editors who must ensure what they see on the monitor is what the DP envisioned. Having monitors that offer color-accurate pictures is crucial to a project and is why we standardized our entire fleet on JVC’s DT-V series of field/studio monitors.”
J/KAM Digital purchased more than 50 JVC DT-V series monitors — G1Z and G2Z, as well as the lower-cost DT-R models, to manage its 50-plus edit systems in various environments across a variety of applications: “It’s important to standardize our monitors from one vendor as this gives us a consistency between our edit bays,” added Beauchamp. “With JVC monitors, we know that our clients will never call to say that the unit needs to be calibrated or that there’s an issue. It’s just one less thing to worry about, and also lowers our support overhead.”
