JVC has released version 1.02 firmware for its GY-HM660 ProHD mobile news camera. The upgrade provides users with two channels of IFB, one for the camera operator and a separate feed for the talent. As a result, news teams can communicate with the studio while streaming live HD reports from the field. The GY-HM660 is the industry‚Äôs first streaming camcorder with integrated IFB audio channels.

The GY-HM660 is a replacement for the GY-HM650 and features three upgraded 12-bit CMOS image sensors 
with improved F13 (50Hz) sensitivity for superior low-light performance. The camera also includes an upgraded 3.5-inch LCD display, which can be swivelled for use as a talent monitor, as well as a 1.22 MP LCOS colour viewfinder. The integrated Fujinon 23x auto focus zoom lens offers a wide 29-667mm (35mm equivalent) focal range and includes three ND filters as well as manual zoom, focus and iris rings.
