JVC launches HD-SD camcorder

New unit prices just over $7,000

The camcorder population has grown again as JVC has introed its GY-HM750U ProHD compact shoulder-mount unit. The product records standard-def and well as high-def and is positioned for ENG, sports, docus, events and other location shoots.

Per JVC, camcorder “offers the industry’s fastest shoot-to-edit workflow by recording native HD or SD footage in ready-to-edit file formats on low-cost SDHC memory cards.” Equipped with a 3-CCD imaging system the lightweight unit delivers 1920×1080 images and 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).

“High definition has not yet been standardized in many markets, and a vital segment of broadcasters don’t have the infrastructure to deliver HD from the field,” said JVC exec Craig Yanagi. “That’s why the new GY-HM750U offers the flexibility to record in 480i as well as a variety of HD formats.”

Camcorder includes a dual card slot design that records to non-proprietary SDHC cards and/or an optional SxS recorder. A new feature, added following numerous customer requests, allows simultaneous recording to both SDHC cards for instant backup or client copy. Manufacturer’s native file recording technology allows recording in ready-to-edit file formats for Apple Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere and other major NLE systems that are compatible with Sony XDCAM EX files. For legacy SD applications the camcorder can also record standard DV files.

Unit is priced at $7,450, including a Canon 14:1 zoom lens, though it accommodates a variety of lenses with its 1/3-inch bayonet lens mount.
