GrasscamcorderIBC 2005 is on in Amsterdam – the European answer to NAB. Grass Valley (now part of the French company Thomson) has just announced their new professional camcorder that can use multiple compression codecs including DV25, MPEG 2 and JPEG 2000 in SD and HD.

The camcorder uses Iomega REV and REV Pro disks or Compact Flash cards to record. The 35 GB Rev disks will store up to two hours of SD material or 45 minutes of HD. At this point, a ten pack of Rev Pro disks is priced at around $70USD per disk – but is bound to drop if and when Iomega regains market share in the consumer market. A Rev Pro reader is expected to be in the $500USD range. Check out  the info here and download this file.The camcorder is expected to be in the $20K US range.
