NAB 2011: JVC To Exhibit New Shoulder-Mount Camcorder

JVC will showcase the new GY-HM750U ProHD compact shoulder-mount camcorder. Ideal for sports, ENG news, and documentaries, the 3-CCD camcorder delivers 1920×1080 images in a small, lightweight form factor. It records at selectable data rates up to 35 Mbps and can record HD footage in 720p, 1080p, and 1080i, as well as SD footage (480i). With its dual-card-slot design, the GY-HM750U records to non-proprietary SDHC cards and/or optional SxS recorder. A new feature allows simultaneous recording to both SDHC cards for instant backup or client copy.

The GY-HM750U records in ready-to-edit file formats for Apple Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere (.mov) as well as to other major NLE systems compatible with Sony XDCAM EX files (.mp4). JVC has also improved its Pre Rec (retro-cache) feature, which continuously records and stores 20 seconds of footage in cache memory and helps prevent missed shots of breaking events.
