JVC Professional Video will demonstrate its new GY-HM200SP 4KCAM camcorder
with embedded score panel graphics at CES 2016, which runs from 6 to 9 January
2016 in Las Vegas. Designed to enhance single-camera HD sports coverage, the
camera produces a real-time score overlay on recorded and streamed video output
without the use of an external CG and production switcher.
“Local sports coverage is often produced by schools or public access channels with
limited resources, so multi-camera productions or a dedicated CG are frequently not
an option,’ explained Ian Scott, vice president of JVC Professional Video Division. “JVC’s
new GY-HM200SP provides an easy, innovative, and affordable way to produce
professional-quality, single-camera sports coverage. One person can shoot, insert
graphics, record, and stream the production live directly from the camera.’
The GY-HM200SP receives score information directly from a mobile device
connected wirelessly to the camera using an intuitive GUI, or interfaces directly to
the sports venue’s own scoreboard controller through a wired or wireless interface.
The camera includes basic layouts to cover a wide variety of sports, but JVC can
also customise the overlay with the names and logos of teams.
Beyond its built-in graphics overlay, the GY-HM200SP includes all the professional
features of the GY-HM200, including an integrated 12x zoom lens with optical image
stabiliser and 24x dynamic zoom in HD mode. Its built-in HD streaming engine with
Wi-Fi and 4G LTE connectivity allows live HD transmission directly from the GY-HM200SP to the ProHD Broadcaster server powered by Zixi, Wowza Streaming
Engine, other hardware decoders, and content delivery networks (CDNs) like
Ustream and YouTube. The camera features dual XLR audio inputs and an integrated handle with hot shoe and dedicated microphone mount, and offers a variety of 4K, HD, and SD recording modes to economical Class 10 SDHC/SDXC memory cards.
