JVC Debuts GY-HM200HW Camera with Integrated Graphics for Houses of Worship aT WFX 2016

Press release date: Sep 21, 2016

WAYNE, NJ – JVC Professional Video, a division of JVCKENWOOD USA Corporation, will introduce the GY-HM200HW 4KCAM live stream video camera with on-board customized titling at the Worship Facilities Conference and Expo (Booth #233), which runs Sept. 21-22, 2016, in Louisville, Ky.

Using the camera’s integrated graphics and congregation-specific text received directly from a mobile device, the GY-HM200HW produces graphic overlays without the use of an external titler or other production equipment. The camera’s graphics can be customized for a variety of religious events, and custom church logos are an option available through JVC. While the overlay is produced simultaneously for both the streamed and recorded video, the operator can choose to record the video with or without the overlay.

The GY-HM200HW’s built-in HD streaming engine with Wi-Fi and 4G LTE connectivity delivers event coverage directly to Facebook Live, YouTube, and other content delivery networks (CDNs). Live footage can also be streamed to a decoder at a cable head-end for leased access and other distribution options.

“Some churches simply do not have the equipment or personnel necessary to support a multi-camera video production of their worship services,” explained Craig Yanagi, product marketing manager, JVCKENWOOD USA. “With the GY-HM200HW, it’s easier than ever for a single camera operator to produce a high-quality production with professional graphics – and then stream those services or other church activities live over the internet. We’re excited to show this innovative and affordable solution to WFX attendees.”

Beyond its built-in graphics overlay, the GY-HM200HW offers all the professional features of the GY-HM200, including an integrated 12x zoom lens with optical image stabilizer and 24x dynamic zoom in HD mode. Other features include dual XLR audio inputs and integrated handle with hot shoe and dedicated microphone mount. The camera includes a variety of 4K, HD, and SD recording modes to non-proprietary Class 10 SDHC/SDXC memory cards. Plus, JVC’s video-over-IP technology allows remote control and monitoring of camera and lens functions from a tablet, smartphone, or computer.

The GY-HM200HW has an MSRP of $2,795 and is available immediately.
