JVC Ships Versatile GY-HM600 PROHD Camera


WAYNE, NJ – JVC Professional Products Company, a division of JVC Americas Corp., is now shipping the GY-HM600, its next-generation handheld ProHD camera. Introduced earlier this year at the 2012 NAB Show, the new HD camera features a built-in 23x zoom lens and delivers superior low-light performance with excellent sensitivity (F11 at 2000 lux).

With a 1.22 MP color viewfinder and color 3.5-inch LCD, the GY-HM600 is versatile enough to handle tripod-based shots and run-and-gun situations. It is equipped with three, 1/3-inch 12-bit CMOS sensors, each with 1920x1080 pixels. The built-in Fujinon HD lens features a wide focal range of 29mm-667mm (35mm equivalent) and has manual focus, zoom, and iris rings, along with three ND filters. Other features include auto-focus with face detection and an optical image stabilizer.

The lightweight camera records HD or SD footage in multiple file formats, including native XDCAM EX™ (.MP4), Final Cut Pro™ (.MOV), and AVCHD, 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. Plus, the Pre Rec (retro cache) feature continuously records and stores up to 20 seconds of footage in cache memory to help prevent missed shots of breaking events.

Equipped with a LANC-based remote connector and compatible with JVC's ProHD Compact Studio seven-inch monitor, the GY-HM600 can be used for an affordable studio system. The camera also includes a time-code synchronization input as well as HD-SDI and HDMI outputs. A built-in stereo microphone is ideal for capturing natural sound, but the GY-HM600 also includes two XLR inputs with phantom power, shotgun mic holder, headphone jack, and additional input for a wireless mic receiver.

“Our new GY-HM600 delivers innovation without compromise,” said Craig Yanagi, manager, marketing and brand strategy. “With amazing images and the industry’s fastest shoot-to-edit workflow, it’s a full-feature camera that’s ideal for news, sports, live presentations, and independent production.”

Another new ProHD camera, the GY-HM650, will be available this winter. Specifically designed for mobile newsgathering, it has similar specs to the GY-HM600 but includes built-in FTP and Wi-Fi connectivity. With its dual codecs, it simultaneously produces full HD files and smaller, Web-friendly files that can be delivered to a station without a microwave or satellite connection.

The GY-HM600 has a suggested list price of $4,695, while the GY-HM650 will have a suggested list price of $5,995.
