Transcode and Import JVC GW-SP100 4K H.264/AVCHD files to Avid Media Composer

Step-by-step tutorial to edit your JVC GW-SP100 4K H.264 files/1080p AVCHD in Avid Media Composer smoothly.

The JVC GW-SP100 is a 4KCAM remote camera head and recording unit; Since the camera head is separate from the recorder, this opens up many dedicated applications for the system, including use for industrial or film applications, on special vessels/cranes/trucks, or as a high-resolution microscope camera and recording system. The mini 4K camera can also be attached to a gimbal option; this may be used with a helicopter system for aerial shooting, with anti-shaking and anti-blurring technology ideal when used with a handheld system. So, while the mini 4K camera produces images suitable for cinematic applications, the system also has applications for broadcast news and could open a whole new world for broadcasters.
