Launched this summer at IBC the new ProHD ENG 600 series cameras from JVC can shoot and deliver news footage faster than ever. These two advanced handheld cameras deliver exceptional imagery and features for news, sports, and independent production in an attractive form factor with intuitive user-friendly controls.
JVC GY-HM600 camcorder
The JVC GY-HM600 handheld camcorder is designed for fast paced ENG and production. Light, versatile and simple to use, it offers superb low light performance of F12 at 2000 lux, a 23x wide angle autofocus zoom lens, and file interoperability from acquisition to air.
It features three 1/3-inch 12-bit full-HD CMOS sensors (1920 x 1080) and records HD or SD footage in multiple file formats, including native XDCAM EX (.MP4), Final Cut Pro (.MOV), AVCHD and H.264, to non-proprietary SDHC or SDXC media cards. In addition to relay mode for uninterrupted recording, the GY-HM600 allows simultaneous recording to both memory cards for instant backup or client copy. It is the perfect tool for VJs and for news/media coverage.
Designed specifically for professional ENG applications, where fast recording in formats suitable for broadcasting is essential, the GY-HM650 ProHD handheld mobile news camera can shoot and deliver news footage faster than ever. Equipped with dual codecs, it produces full HD files on one memory card while simultaneously creating smaller, web-friendly files (1/4 HD or SD) on a second card. With built-in FTP connectivity, the GY-HM650 lets you deliver your footage back to a station for editing without the use of microwave or satellite connections - ideal for breaking an important story as soon as it happens.
The GY-HM650 not only supports MPEG-2, AVCHD and H.264 formats, but also the new AS-10 format (MXF for production). In addition, a built-in web server allows you to take full control of the camera, including focus, zoom, iris and metadata editing, via any browser-enabled device such as a tablet or mobile phone, with no additional software required.
4K workflow and the GY-HMQ10 2K/4K camcorder
With more broadcasters and production houses looking towards the future, JVC will be demonstrating its current 4K workflow with the worlds first handheld 2K/4K camcorder, the GY-HMQ10. It captures, records and plays video images at four times the resolution of high definition television. Powered by JVCs Falconbrid large-scale integration (LSI) chip for high-speed signal processing and a 1/2-inch CMOS imager with 8.3 million active pixels, the camcorder delivers real-time 3840x2160 footage at 24p and 50p. Using MPEG-4 technology and a variable bit rate H.264 codec operating at up to 144 Mbps, its possible to record up to two hours of 4K video to economical SDHC or SDXC memory cards. To highlight the cameras performance and how it can be used alongside existing systems, a 4K workflow based around the GY-HMQ10 will be on show, demonstrating both ease of use and the creative ways 4K material can be used as part of a full HD project. There will also be an area displaying our studio solutions, with the GY-HM790 fibre camera system, camera controllers and KM-H3000 digital production switcher.
