JVC's GY-HM750 brings a new level of features and performance to its popular compact shoulder product line. Based on an upgraded 3rd generation digital processing engine, the HM750 offers improved picture quality and the ability to record either HD or SD directly to economical SDHC solid state media.
Dual memory card recording now permits recording on both cards simultaneously, or individually for virtually unlimited recording time. And like other ProHD camcorders, it records in the native file formats of popular professional editing systems for the world's fastest workflow. The GY-HM750 is now equipped with a 68-pin chassis connector that allows various modules such the KA-AS790 ASI adapter to be attached without external cabling--ideal for live microwave broadcasts. Whether you're shooting news, commercials, documentaries or music videos, the GY-HM750 is the ideal camcorder.
Upgraded 35Mbps MPEG2 Encoder
Drawing on its long experience of developing dedicated encoders for the broadcasting industry, JVC has equipped the GY-HM750U with a powerful MPEG2 encoder capable of compressing full 1920 x 1080 HD video at up to 35 Mbps. The result is the pristine picture quality that professional users demand, from a surprisingly compact and lightweight shoulder-mount camcorder. MPEG2 long GOP is the most widely accepted broadcast standard compression supported by all popular editing systems and broadcast servers. In the HQ mode, the encoder operates with a variable bit rate average of 35Mbps. The SP mode records at a constant bit rate of either 19.7Mbps or 25Mbps to ensure compatibility with a wide range of equipment. The GY-HM750 supports all major signal formats including 1920 x 1080, 1440 x 1080, 1280 x 720, and 720 x 480.
Variable Frame Rate Recording (Over crank, Under crank)
When recording in the 720p 35Mbps mode, the camera can be set to record at a frame rate different than the playback rate. This capability makes it possible to record slow or fast motion when the recording is played back at 24p or 30p.
Standard Definition Recording Capability
Responding to the needs of the industry, the GY-HM750U, in addition to its capability as an HD recorder, offers Standard Definition recording for maximum flexibility. Recording in SD provides a time-saving alternative to down-conversion of HD material for SD broadcasts, which is still an industry standard in many countries worldwide. This feature offers a fundamental advantage for professionals with time-sensitive SD workflows.
High performance Canon HD lens
The GY-HM750U includes a detachable 14x Canon KT14x4.4KRSJ HD lens based on the superb optics found in more expensive HD lenses. Its superior MTF provides higher resolution than typical "stock" lenses. The lens has improved lateral and longitudinal chromatic aberration characteristics and is ideal for full 1920 x 1080 imaging. Canon's internal focusing system minimizes "breathing" compared with typical focusing systems. Internal focus also makes possible a more efficient light blocking lens hood. ENG shooters will be pleased with its wider angle and consistent brightness from 4.4mm (wide) to 62mm (telephoto) with no F-drop. Operation is the same as with all professional lenses, with mechanical control of focus, and servo or manual control of zoom and aperture.
Jumbo size 4.3-inch flip-out LCD panel
Complementing the new high resolution viewfinder is a large LCD flip out monitor that can be used in recording, playback, clip management, and menu operation. The 4.3-inch 800x480 WVGA LCD offers a 16:9 aspect ratio and provides a wide array of monitoring and setup indications. It is specially designed to reduce surface reflections and glare to maintain a clear, visible, bright view during outdoor recording. Menu items are easily selected using user-friendly setting cross keys.
