The GY-HC900 is a unique and innovative broadcast camcorder that makes no compromises in image quality while offering a level of connectivity not found elsewhere. It features three 2/3-inch CMOS image sensors that deliver high sensitivity, low noise and wide dynamic range. It's equipped with a new powerful communications engine that truly makes News-over-IP a reality with a streamlined ENG workflow that's both reliable and cost effective. And it offers a comprehensive fiber solution for advanced EFP and studio installations.

Important new features have been added to the GY-HC900 with the most recent firmware upgrade (v0300.) The camera now supports recording contribution quality ProRes HD422 files to SSD media via the optional KA-MC100 adapter. SSD recording can also be used in the backup mode. Live streaming is now much more efficient when using the HEVC/H.265 plug-in encoder (KA-EN200). High quality 4:2:2 10 bit streaming is now possible with H.265 at up to 24Mbps. Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) open streaming protocol is now available with this upgrade. And the camera now offers high quality broadcast graphic overlays, either lower third or full screen—a feature never before found on a 2/3-inch broadcast camera.
