JVC Updates 4KCAM Line-Up With 3 New Cameras
JVC HM250SP includes sports score overlays facility.
JVC has announced three new additions to its family of 4KCAM cameras. Among other new features, the new GY-HM250E offers integrated graphics and live streaming, while the GY-HM250SP adds sports-specific score overlays. Also new, the GY-HM180E sets a new benchmark for professional compact cameras without built-in streaming or graphics.
Designed for enhanced single-camera production, the JVC GY-HM250E offers lower-third and full-screen titling solutions for recorded or streamed video output without an external CG or production switcher. Lower-third graphic overlays are generated and controlled using a browser-equipped device, such as a tablet or smartphone. JVC also provides a software utility that lets customers upload logos or icons that are displayed in the lower-third of the recorded video.
The camera’s score overlays for football, baseball, basketball, hockey, soccer and volleyball can be placed in various screen positions. Camera operators can update the score using an external Wi-Fi connected smartphone or tablet, or receive real-time scoreboard data automatically when wirelessly connected to a Sportzcast Scorebot that is integrated with the venue’s scoreboard.
Both the GY-HM250E and GY-HM250SP also feature built-in streaming with Wi-Fi and 4G connectivity that provides live access to CDNs like Facebook Live and YouTube. The cameras also work as part of JVC’s S.L.I.M. studio camera system – an affordable approach to multi-camera production that uses the RM-LP100 remote camera control as a CCU for JVC IP-capable cameras.
Other new features include 4:2:2 recording for 4K/30/25p and 4K/24p, as well as 4K/60/50p HDMI output. The new tele macro shooting mode on the GY-HM250E and GY-HM250SP provides better focus on close objects than previous models, while the new Zero Config function provides automatic, one-click configuration of the camera when it joins the same LAN as other cameras.
The new GY-HM250E replaces the current GY-HM200E model, while the new GY-HM250SP with integrated sports graphic overlays replaces the GY-HM200SP.
An upgrade to the popular GY-HM170E, the GY-HM180E still outputs live 4K via HDMI, but also adds a 3G-SDI output for flexible connectivity.
Beyond the upgrades, GY-HM250E, GY-HM250SP and GY-HM180E retain the professional features valued in the previous 4KCAM models, including a 1/2.3-inch BSI 4K CMOS imager and integrated 12x zoom lens with optical image stabiliser. The cameras record footage in a variety of file formats and frame rates (including up to 120fps slow motion) to economical Class 10 SDHC/SDXC memory cards. Users can record on two cards simultaneously for instant backup or use relay mode for extended recording time. Other features include dual XLR audio inputs, integrated handle with hot shoe, built-in microphone and dedicated shotgun mic mount, and viewfinder and LCD displays.
