JVC GY-HM650 ProHD camera saves WWSB thousands in satellite truck costs with one assignmentNik Wallenda gained national attention last month when he completed a 1,400-foot-long tightrope walk across the Little Colorado River Gorge near the Grand Canyon in Arizona.

The event was shown live on the Discovery Channel on June 23, but WWSB, an ABC affiliate based in Sarasota (DMA #14), used the built-in streaming capabilities of the JVC GY-HM650 ProHD mobile news camera to provide live coverage of press conferences and other events from Arizona for Wallenda’s hometown fans. With only a two-person team, anchor Lauren Dorsett and creative service producer Charlie Yeagley, who handled shooting duties, the station provided live coverage of Wallenda’s arrival and press conferences, as well as stand-ups from the event.
