JVC GY-HC900F20

Highlighted by three 2/3-inch CMOS image sensors for full HD imagery, as well as enhanced connectivity for a complete news-over-IP workflow solution in the field, JVC's GY-HC900F20 camcorder is a unique and innovative broadcast camcorder that offers a level of connectivity not found elsewhere. This CONNECTED CAM™ offering delivers high sensitivity, low noise and wide dynamic range, as well as IPX2 equivalent robust body for challenging scenes. It's equipped with a powerful communications engine that truly makes News-over-IP a reality with a streamlined ENG workflow that's both reliable and cost-effective. The CONNECTED CAM expands complete IP-based solution, connecting the field with the studio, while sharing with the world.

The GY-HC900F20 comes with an OLED viewfinder, Wi-Fi antennas and a Fujinon 20x ENG Lens, so you're ready to hit the field assignments running, when paired directly with the optional ProHD Dockable Bridge or via Wi-Fi with any ProHD Bridge unit. This technology allows on-air talent to conduct a two-way interview with return video while streaming live to air without any external boxes or backpacks. It's JVC’s first camera featuring a communications engine that optimizes both image processing and IP performance. The engine enables simultaneous recording, low latency streaming, and simultaneous decoding for return video and IFB. Latency can be as low as 500ms for both outgoing and incoming video.

The GY-HC900’s complete IP workflow includes streaming performance up to 20 Mbps and built-in Wi-Fi (2.4Ghz/5GHz) with dual external antennas. The camera also features Zixi™ error correction with automatic repeat request (ARQ) and SMPTE 2022 forward error correction for reliable transmission. Beyond ENG, the GY-HC900 is an ideal choice for high-end EFP and studio fiber applications. It works with the FS-900 camera module, which attaches seamlessly to the camera via a 68-pin interface, and feeds 3G-SDI signals, control, audio, sync, and intercom to a base station via fiber.

The GY-HC900 supports native recording of both MPEG-2 at up to 35 Mbps, which is widely used by broadcasters, and H.264 (.MOV), which provides production quality 10 bit, 1080/60p 4:2:2 footage. Plus, the camcorder records in Sports Exchange Standard formats, so sports organizations can produce HD video with rich metadata that specifically addresses the workflow needs of sports production and video coaching applications. With dual memory card slots for SDHC/SDXC media, the GY-HC900 offers redundant, relay, and backup recording modes. It also records proxy resolution video clips for off-line editing or online posts. The camera includes a 3.26-inch OLED color viewfinder, as well as a 3.5-inch LCD panel for menu navigation.

An integrated 3G-SDI pool feed input allows the GY-HC900 operator to capture video and stream it live simultaneously. Camera functions can also be controlled via web browser or the JVC RM-LP100 remote camera control. The camera also boasts an IPX2 water resistant rating for operation in challenging conditions. Other features include a genlock input, time code in/out, dual 3G-SDI outputs and an HDMI output, three XLR audio inputs, Ethernet and USB ports, wireless audio module slot, and an additional slot for future expansion.
