JVC Showcases New Sports Production Streaming Camcorder At CES 2016

JVC Professional Video demonstrated its new GY-HM200SP 4KCAM camcorder with embedded score panel graphics at CES 2016. Designed to enhance single-camera HD sports coverage, the camera produces a real-time score overlay on recorded and streamed video output without the use of an external CG and production switcher. The GY-HM200SP receives score information directly from a mobile device connected wirelessly to the camera, or interfaces directly to the sports venue’s own scoreboard controller through a wired or wireless interface. The camera includes basic layouts to cover a wide variety of sports, but JVC can also customize the overlay with the names and logos of teams.

“JVC’s new GY-HM200SP provides an easy, innovative, and affordable way to produce professional-quality, single-camera sports coverage. One person can shoot, insert graphics, record, and stream the production live directly from the camera.” explained Ian Scott, vice president, Professional Video Division.

Beyond its built-in graphics overlay, the JVC GY-HM200SP includes all the professional features of the GY-HM200, including an integrated 12x zoom lens with optical image stabilizer. Its built-in HD streaming engine with Wi-Fi and 4G LTE connectivity allows live HD transmission directly from the GY-HM200SP to the ProHD Broadcaster server powered by Zixi, Wowza Streaming Engine, other hardware decoders, and CDNs like Ustream and YouTube. The camera features dual XLR audio inputs and an integrated handle with hot shoe and dedicated microphone mount, and offers a variety of 4K, HD, and SD recording modes to Class 10 SDHC/SDXC memory cards.

“Local sports coverage is often produced by schools or public access channels with limited resources, so multi-camera productions or a dedicated CG are frequently not an option,” said In Scott.

JVC Professional Video, a division of JVCKENWOOD USA Corporation, plan to ship January 2016.

The scores can be input wirelessly to the camera from a mobile device like an iPad

JVC will also demonstrated a prototype of its new “Sports Coaching System” at CES. Designed to help coaches analyze athletic form and skills, the multi-camera system documents a player’s golf swing, pitcher form, or other movements from different angles. Up to four high-speed HD video cameras (300fps), each equipped with 10x zoom lenses and controlled through Android OS, send video to a computer via Wi-Fi for instant, synchronized slo-mo playback.
