West Virginia University improves football practice video with JVC PROHD Cameras

West Virginia University Football is using five new JVC GY-HM620 ProHD cameras to record practice footage for coaches

JVC Professional Video, a division of JVCKENWOOD USA Corporation, has announced West Virginia University Football in Morgantown, W.Va., is using five new JVC GY-HM620 ProHD cameras to record practice footage for coaches. The new cameras were delivered in mid-July in time for use during the team’s first practice of the season on July 30.

 

According to Kyle Butler, video coordinator for WVU Football, up to eight cameras are used during practice. Operated primarily by student volunteers, the cameras are positioned behind the end zone and near the sideline to provide multiple angles of all practice activities.

 

While a couple of handheld cameras provide field-level coverage, most cameras are kept on tripods and positioned on scissor lifts or permanent towers near the sideline and end zone to capture higher angles. “The higher angles allow coaches to see more of what’s going on at one time than a field-level camera,” Butler explained.
