You want smartphone-controlled live graphics? JVC makes it possible!

Mixing graphics live typically requires a professional setup that includes an external CG or a switcher — but JVC is launching new 4K cameras that can live-stream with graphics, switcher-free, by using a smartphone or tablet. The JVC Professional 4KCam GY-HM250U builds in a variety of different graphics for live-streaming, while the GY-HM250SP adds sports-specific graphics, including scoreboards. The GY-HM180U also launches as a less pricey pro video camera from the same line.

Compact 4K Camcorder offering Great Mobility, High Functionality and Live Streaming with Overlay Information

Advanced IP Network Communication and HD Streaming

The camcorder features JVC’s latest IP communications engine, giving you remote control and monitoring of vital camera and lens functions from a tablet, smartphone, or computer anywhere in the world. Live streaming is possible in HD or SD resolutions, depending on available bandwidth. Connect your camera to an optional Wi-Fi or 4G/LTE modem and share your programme with an audience anywhere in the world via content delivery networks such as YouTube, Facebook Live, and other cloud services.


Real-Time Broadcast Info Overlay

Designed for enhaced single-camera production, the GY-HM250 produces real-time broadcast information overlays for recorded video or streamed video without an external CG or production switcher. Lower-third grapic overlays are generated and controlled using a browser-equipped device, such as a tablet or smartphone.

Full-Screen Grapics Overlay and Slide Show

Stores up to 50 full-scxreen grapics in the camera to overlay on live streaming and HD recording. Grapics can be advanced manually or presented as a looping slide show with timing of 1 – 99 seconds per slide.

FTP Uploading for Footage Transfer

Video clips recorded on an SDHC/SDXC card can be transfered from the GY-HM250 via FTP Server. Clips can be trimmed right in the camera, which is useful for selecting only vital scenes before uploading to an FTP Server. Whats’s more, if an upload is smart enough to restart from where it left off. This will help to save time for uploading.

HD-SDI (3G) and HDMI output

The camcorder comes with a wide variety of connectors to meet the needs of professional applications, including HD-SDI (3G) and HDMI. Secured digital connection is assured between external devices such as a recorder or switcher. Simultaneous output from both SDI and HDMI is also possible.

1/2.3-inch 12.4M CMOS sensor

This camcorder was built to deliver stunning, life-like 4K Ultra HD (3840×2160) video. JVC’s 4K CMOS sensor with 12.4M pixels delivers high sensitivity and excellent performance over a wide range of lighting conditions. Details are crisp and accurate throughout the entire image plane.


Full HD 4:2:2 recording at 50Mbps

The ability to record H.264 4:2:2 24-60p at 50Mbps makes this an ideal camera for broadcasting and production houses alike. The colour accuracy of 4:2:2 enables the camera to deliver exceptional colour resolution even when images are in sharp contrast to the background. This is particularly useful when strong colours are in contrast to bright backgrounds, or in green screen usage.

120fps high-speed recording for slow motion playback

The camcorder allows high-speed recording at up to 120fps (59.94Hz) / 100fps (50Hz) for smooth slow motion playback. This can be used to create artistic effects or to review action replays when examining sporting skills. The feature is only available at 1920×1080 resolution only, and offers up to 1/5 slow at 24p mode.

Detachable handle unit with professional XLR audio

The detachable heavy-duty handle makes the camcorder easy to carry and also makes it simple to shoot from low angles, thanks to its built-in REC button with lock function, and zoom lever. XLR audio inputs are provided for the attachment of a professional microphone or for LINE input, complete with Phantom power supply capability.
