JVC GY-HM620 ProHD Camcorder

A light, versatile and extremely easy to use ProHD camcorder 

Flexibility Meets Next Generation Performance
Introducing the GY-HM620, a light, versatile and extremely easy to use ProHD camcorder with superior low-light performance for next generation acquisition.


23x Fujinon Lens and newly-developed Full HD 1/3-inch CMOS Sensors

The Fujinon wide angle 23x zoom lens provides superb sharpness and excellent low-light performance in tandem with three CMOS sensors with extremely high sensitivity of F12 (60Hz) /F13 (50Hz) at 2000 lux. Minimum illumination is an incredible 0.15 lux (typical.)

Next Generation FALCONBRID™ Image Processing Engine
The on-board FALCONBRID™ engine achieves superior image quality with 2D DNR processing, as well as compensation for chromatic aberration, shading and a wider dynamic range.

Dual Recording - Wide Media Format Compatibility
The GY-HM620 records HD or SD footage to SDHC or SDXC mediacards in a range of file formats, including MOV for Final Cut Pro™, MP4, compatible with XDCAM EX™, and AVCHD. In addition to seamless relay recording for continuous shooting, simultaneous recording to both memory cards for an instant backup or duplicate copy is also possible.

Native Workflow
Ready to edit the moment it’s shot, HD or SD footage is recorded natively in the format of the world's most popular editing systems.

Superior HD Imaging -
23x Fujinon Auto Focus Zoom Lens with Manual Functions
The GY-HM620 is equipped with the Fujinon wide angle 23x zoom lens, giving the highest magnification in the industry. Delivering superior low-light performance and ensuring brightness at the tele end, the lens offers F1.6-3.0, a focal range of 29mm-667mm (35mm equivalent) and includes servo zoom, manual focus, and iris rings, along with a four-position (clear, 1/4, 1/16 and 1/64) ND filter. Other features include an optical image stabilizer, chromatic aberration correction.

Newly Developed High Performance Full HD 1/3-inch CMOS Sensors
At the heart of the GY-HM620 are three, newly developed 1/3-inch CMOS sensors, each capable of capturing full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution images. Offering an excellent sensitivity of F12 (60Hz) /F13 (50Hz) and aremarkable signal-to-noise ratio, the devices provide superior precision and color reproduction with minimal aberration.

Advanced Processing Engine - Revolutionary FALCONBRID™ Image Processing Engine
FALCONBRID™ is JVC’s high-speed processor for advanced video applications. Delivering tremendous processing power on a single chip, the on-board FALCONBRID™ engine processes large amounts of video data at exceptional speeds. Together with this technology, superior image quality has been realized with 2D DNR processing and compensation circuitry for wide dynamic range.

MPEG-2 and AVCHD Recording
The GY-HM620 supports both the popular MPEG-2 Long GOP 35/25/19Mbps format, widely used by television broadcasters, and the highly efficient AVCHD 24/17Mbps mode, which provides compatibility with a wide range of affordable editing systems. This means that professionals have unprecedented flexibility to meet production standards through a wide range of workflows.

Flexible File-based Workflow - Multiple File Formats for Native Workflows
Record HD or SD footage directly in ready-to-edit QuickTime™ MOV files, the native file format of Apple’s Final Cut Pro™. JVC has eliminated one of the main obstacles to achieving a smoother, more streamlined production workflow. Native file recording ensures your footage is ready to edit the moment it’s shot, resulting in a more efficient workflow and no loss of image quality.Additionally, with the MPEG-2 mode for Windows editing environments, it is possible to record in MP4 format (XDCAM EX™ workflow-compatible) for direct editing in other major NLE systems, including Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere and Grass Valley Edius Pro.
*H.264 SD MOV file can be edited by Grass Valley Edius Pro.

Dual SDHC/SDXC Card Slots for Maximum Versatility
Dual SDHC/SDXC card slots make the GY-HM620 a truly versatilecamcorder, offering such benefits as simultaneous recording and relay recording with reliable and cost-effective media.

In relay recording mode, you can shoot continuously and seamlessly over multiple cards. When one card is full, the camcorder switches seamlessly and automatically to the other card. And because cards are hot swappable, there is in effect no limit to the continuous shooting time in any mode, even with lower capacity cards. It is possible to start editing footage from one card while still shooting to the other. With simultaneous recording, you can easily create backup or duplicate files as you shoot without the need for any external equipment—either for a client copy or simply for peace of mind. Additionally, while the Rec trigger is used to pause and unpause recording on one card, the other card can act as a continuous backup that overrides the pause function.

SDHC/SDXC media offers the best combination of price, availability, capacity, reliability and transfer speed. With no moving parts and no pins or other extrusions, SDHC/SDXC cards are both durable and reliable, and compare favorably with tape on a cost-per-minute basis.
* During simultaneous backup recording in HD mode, the duplicate file records in the same file format and bit rate as the original.

High-Performance Features
- Superb Portability and Compact Design
With a stylish body that fits boldly within the distinctive range of ProHD camcorders, the compact dimensions and superb portability of the GY-HM620 allow it to beused anywhere. Lightweight (2.4kg/5.3lbs operating condition), versatile and extremely easy to use, it is the perfect camcorder for next generation acquisition.

Shooter-Friendly Controls and Layouts
Ergonomics has played a major role in the design of the GY-HM620.
The camcorder’s handgrip makes it very comfortable to hold, even on long shoots. And despite its extremely compact dimensions, all the camcorder’s main functions are accessible directly from controls and switches on the camera body, right where you would expect them to be.

1.22 Megapixel LCOS Viewfinder
The GY-HM620 features a stunning newhigh-resolution (852 x 480 x 3) LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) 0.45" viewfinder. The 16:9 image is crisper and more detailed than conventional LCD viewfinders, with higher vertical resolution and superior RGB color separation.

Focus Assist Function
Helping the camera operator stay focused on the action is a focus assist system that highlights the edges of objects in the image. When Focus Assist is switched on, the image in the viewfinder or LCD monitor switches to monochrome and all objects that are in focus appear with colored edges (selectable from red, green or blue). Keeping the important elements in the picture in focus while shooting is greatly simplified.

GUI
The GY-HM620 takes ProHD's highly regarded GUI navigationto the next level. Not only are menu items immediately accessible, but settings can also be easily checked right from the settings window. With an improved graphical interface, it’s easier than ever to customize the settings to match individual preferences or the demands of the moment.

High-Resolution 920K pixels 3.5" LCD Monitor
The high-resolution 920K pixels 3.5" 16:9 aspect ratio LCD monitor provides a wide array of monitoring and setup indications. For maximum flexibility, the monitor is mounted at the top of the camera, ideal for shooting at various angles in handheld camera applications.

User Friendly Functions - Pre Rec Mode
How many times have you missed a crucial moment because you didn’t hit the record button in time? With Pre Rec enabled, the camcorder continuously buffers up to 15 seconds of video, so that when recording is started the cached video is included in the recorded file, giving you an up to 15 second head start.

Interval Rec
This feature allows you to record single frames at set intervals, which can be used to shoot slow-moving scenes, such as sunsets or construction, or to capture time-lapse recordings, such as the growing of plants.

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, 25p or 30p. The GY-HM620 canalso under-crank in the 1080p 35Mbps mode.

Cutting-Edge Connectivity
Equipped with leading edge connections, the GY-HM620 offers versatility while meeting the needs of professional applications. For easy monitoring of footage, you can monitor from the digital SDI and HDMI outputs simultaneously, easily switching between output in HD or SD.

  • SDI (HD/SD) out
  • HDMI (HD/SD) out

TC Sync
With TC Sync functionality, two GY-HM620units can be synchronized with time code using an RCA cable. Since the terminal can be used for both in/out functions, either unit can be the master, providing for an ideal multi-camera operation setup.

Wired Remote Control
The GY-HM620 comes with a wired remote interface(Ø 2.5mm connector) for operating the camcorder remotely when using a tripod, jib, crane or boom.

Audio Recording and Monitoring Flexibility
The GY-HM620 provides a number of essential audio features. Its built-in stereo microphone is ideal for capturing natural sound on location, but the camera also includes two mic/line selectable XLR inputs with phantom power. The side panel is equipped with screws to attach a holder for an optional wireless receiver, for which there are dedicated mic and headphone jacks. Also equipped with an audio equalizer, sound can be adjusted to your liking from the GUI.

High-Capacity Battery Systems
Capture more footage and clock more recording time with the newly developed high-capacity (4900mAh) battery. In addition, it is also possible to charge the battery when the camera is switched off and plugged in using the AC adapter.
