JVC Professional Products Company debuts its GY-HM150 ProHD handheld camcorder that is based on the ergonomic design of the popular GY-HM100, the company says.
The GY-HM150 is built to handle demanding news and production environments, and a new encoder and digital signal processor, adopted from JVC's 700 series cameras, deliver improved HD recording and adds support for standard definition (SD), the company says. With its 3-CCD imagers, the GY-HM150 offers full HD 1080p, 1080i, and 720p recording at a variety of frame and bit rates, JVC says.
JVC’s native file recording, the industry’s fastest shoot-to-edit workflow, provides native .MOV files for Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere, as well as native .MP4 files for other NLE systems, JVC says. And it also records SD footage (480i) as standard DV files (.AVI or .MOV).
The GY-HM150 records to non-proprietary SDHC media cards like other ProHD models, but it also accepts new SDXC cards, which are currently available with capacities up to 128 GB. In addition to relay mode for uninterrupted recording, the camcorder allows simultaneous recording to both memory cards for instant backup or client copy.
