The JVC GY-HM200SP’s built-in score overlay, which supports user personalized team names and logos, produces game graphics without the use of an external CG or production switcher. Once integrated with the scoreboard at a venue, the Sportzcast Scorebot receives and processes the score and game sequence information, then transfers it wirelessly to the camcorder in real time. As a result, the camera operator does not need to manually input score information.

Beyond its built-in graphics, the GY-HM200SP includes the extensive professional feature set of the GY-HM200 camcorder, one of JVC's 4KCAM product line. Its built-in streaming engine with Wi-Fi and 4G LTE connectivity allows live HD transmission to the JVC VIDEOCLOUD, Facebook Live, and YouTube, as well as broadcast IP decoders. Its integrated 12x zoom lens includes an optical image stabilizer and 24x dynamic zoom in HD mode. Other features include dual XLR audio inputs, integrated handle with hot shoe and dedicated microphone mount, and a variety of 4K, HD, and SD recording modes to economical Class 10 SDHC/SDXC memory cards.

“With the GY-HM200SP, JVC has significantly improved production values for single-camera game coverage for high schools, colleges, and PEG channels with limited resources. Our affordable GYHM200SCOREBOT is the industry's only end-to-end, single-camera sporting event coverage system that provides a built-in score overlay and an interface with the facility scoreboard, so scorekeeping is updated automatically and the camera operator can stay focused on the action.”
