JVC GY-HC550 4K Camera

The two new models in the CONNECTED CAM range – the GY-HC500 and the GY-HC550 – offer unparalleled IP connectivity in a handheld camcorder form factor.

Both models feature a 1” 4K CMOS sensor which is combined with a newly-developed 20x lens with 3-ring control, resulting in excellent imaging performance and shooting flexibility. And with a high-resolution viewfinder, imaging framing and focus control is easily achieved. The GY-HC500/550 can achieve up to 12 stops of dynamic range, with support for BT709, BT2020 and BT2100 HLG colourspaces.

Using the latest generation codec that’s also used in the GY-HC900 shoulder mount CONNECTED CAM, the GY-HC500/ HC550 can record to SSD media in a wide variety of formats, including 10-bit ProRes 422 at 4K resolution and 50/60p frame rates. A number of other codecs and recording formats are also available, including H.264 and MPEG-2, ensuring a wide range of workflows can be supported.

Both the GY-HC500 and GY-HC550 deliver an advanced, class-leading set of IP connectivity functions, with both models offering live streaming, FTP file transfer and remote camera control over IP. The latest CONNECTED CAM technology now adds return video over IP, high-quality IFB audio return, and the ability to stream at up to 1080p50/60 at 20Mb/s, giving a uniquely high-quality contribution stream over IP, directly from the camera.

The GY-HC550 furthermore adds in an additional range of features, including Wireless LAN antennas, built-in broadcast graphics overlays, and Zixi protocol support for streaming applications.

The GY-HC500 and GY-HC550 add to the first model in the CONNECTED CAM range, the GY-HC900, which is a high-quality shoulder mount camcorder, ideal for a wide range of live production applications. The GY-HC900 has 3 x 2/3” CMOS sensors offering outstanding low high capability, and supports an industry standard B4 mount, allowing a wide range of broadcast lenses to be utilised. The professional shoulder mount form factor of the GY-HC900 will appeal to those users requiring a highly reliable, flexible ENG solution, with all the benefits of the CONNECTED CAM IP technology. The GY-HC900 can also be easily adapted to use as a studio camera, through its unique docking system for fibre studio connection.
