JVC GY-HM660 Professional Camcorder

Capture Full HD 1920x1080 resolution images

Newly developed 1/3-inch 3CMOS Sensor (1920 x 1080) boasts Sensitivity of F12/F13 (60/50Hz
At the heart of the GY-HM660 are three, newly developed 1/3-inch CMOS sensors with 2.5M pixels, each capable of capturing full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution images. Featuring 12-bit processing, an excellent sensitivity of F12 (60Hz) /F13 (50Hz) at 2000 lux, and a remarkable signal-to-noise ratio, the devices provide superior precision and color reproduction with minimal aberration. For improved CMOS sensor performance, flash-band compensation is also supported.


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 engine is capable of processing large amounts of video data at exceptional speeds. The combination of FALCONBRID™ engine, 2D DNR processing & compensation circuitry, and wide dynamic range achieve superior image quality. The GY-HM660 is equipped with two FALCONBRID™ engines, which enable parallel processing like recording at two formats (HD + SD and HD + Web) or Live Streaming while Recording.

Upgraded High-resolution 920K Pixels 3.5-inch LCD Display with Focus Assist and various GUI
The high-resolution 920K pixels 3.5-inch LCD monitor provides a wide aspect ratio of 16:9 with a wide array of monitoring and setup indications. Since the LCD is top-mounted, not only is it ideal for shooting at various angles but also provides ample distance from the cameraman’s eyes to the LCD to achieve better visibility in handheld camera applications. It also features a Focus Assist function that highlights the edges of objects shown in the viewfinder in color (red, green or blue) to help the cameraman stay focused on the action.

Various Codecs and File Formats including the Original H.264 XHQ (50Mbps) mode
FALCONBRID™ engine is capable of supporting major file formats such as .MXF with rich metadata optimized for asset management, .MOV with Apple Final Cut Pro, .MP4 of XDCAM EX™ cameras, and .MTS for AVCHD compatibility, as well as high-definition images in MPEG-2 35Mbps (HQ) and AVCHD 28Mbs (Progressive) format.

Furthermore, the processor also supports H.264 video format in 50Mbs extreme high quality (XHQ) mode for virtually no block noise and to capture high-speed moving subjects all the way to Web LP (480 x 270) mode (Web <Proxy>) suitable for internet applications. Using the camera’s Dual recording capability, different combinations of HD+SD and HD+Web are also supported.

Dual SDHC/SDXC Card Slots for Maximum Versatility
Dual SDHC/SDXC card slots make the GY-HM660 a truly versatile camcorder, offering such benefits as series recording, dual recording, and backup recording modes with reliable and cost-effective media.

Series (relay) recording mode
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.

Dual (simultaneous) recording mode (HD/HD, HD/SD or HD/Web)

Easily create duplicate backup files as you shoot—either to divide editing tasks or simply for peace of mind. With the new dual codec, it is now possible to record full HD files on one memory card while simultaneously creating smaller SD or proxy files on the other, providing the flexibility for a range of workflow possibilities.

Backup recording mode

While the Rec trigger is used to REC and STOP recording on one card, the other card can act as a continuous backup that overrides the pause function.* This is a unique mode highly demanded by theatrical and bridal camera crew.
During simultaneous backup recording in HD mode, the duplicate file records in the same file format and bit rate as the original.

23x Fujinon Auto Focus Zoom Lens with Manual Functions
The GY-HM660 is equipped with the Fujinon wide angle 23x optical zoom lens to offer sufficient magnification for shooting. 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 and chromatic aberration correction.

Cutting-edge Connectivity including SDI (HD/SD) Out
Equipped with leading edge connections, the GY-HM660 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 (60p support)
  • TC Sync in/out
  • AV out
  • USB (Host x1, Device x1)
  • XLR 3-pin x2 (MIC, +48B <phantom power>, LINE)
  • Aux in for Wireless Received
  • ø2.5mm Remote Control
  • ø3.5mm Stereo Headphone out

IP Network & Live Streaming
Live Streaming up to 12Mbps of High Bit Rate Streaming
If your task involves mission-critical ENG applications, turn to the GY-HM660 as it is capable of streaming LIVE HD/SD and proxy video/audio files via network up to 12Mbps. Coupled with the superior mobility of the camera, this wireless capability allows you to stream backhaul live to the newsroom or to a reliable cloud service such as Zixi, as well as content delivery networks such as USTREAM and YouTube using Wi-Fi or 4G-LTE network. All you need to do is press a button and you’re streaming HD to the world.

IP Connection Realized with a Variety of USB Host Adapters
Full HD video footage recorded on the GY-HM660 can stream backhaul live to the target location using an adapter such as 4G LTE/3G modem, Wi-Fi LAN, or Ethernet, whichever is more stable and cost-effective. Such use of an adapter enables uploading video clips to and receiving Metadata (in XML) from the FTP server, remote controlling web server content, viewing and editing Metadata, and most of all for live streaming footage from anywhere in the world immediately after it is recorded.

Advanced IP Functions for FTP Uploading
Video clips recorded on an SDHC/SDXC card can be transferred from the GY-HM660 via FTP server. Clips can be trimmed right on the camera, which is useful for selecting only vital scenes before uploading to an FTP server. What’s more, if an upload is interrupted by a weak connection, the FTP Resume function is smart enough to restart from where it left off. This will help to save time for uploading.

Supports SMPTE 2022-1 Protocol for HQ Streaming
Stable, high-quality live streaming over IP is made possible thanks to support for the new SMPTE 2022 protocol. Since its introduction in 2007, the SMPTE 2022 standard has added sections to cover more types of IP video transport. Of the standard, the GY-HM660 supports the first protocol, which is  forward error correction (FEC) for real-time video/audio transport over IP networks.

Advanced Live Streaming with Built-in Zixi Engine
For advanced live streaming solutions, JVC has tagged with Zixi. The GY-HM660 features the Zixi engine, installed directly into the camera to provide high-quality delivery over 4G LTE or standard Internet connection. The powerful Zixi engine applies forward error correction (FEC) and adaptive bit rate control with the new “high reliable mode” to correct packet loss by over 40%*, delivering a robust, reliable HD stream. In the camera’s FTP setting, the new Zixi protocol has been added for transferring clips while recording from the camera via Zixi server.
*Quality of Live streaming depends on network conditions including packet loss.

IP Remote Control with Viewing
When the camera is IP connected to a server console, vital camera operations can be remotely controlled via wireless or wired LAN from smart devices and computers. Remote control functions include lens and camera settings as well as registering zoom presets. Best of all, recording and live streaming may also be triggered remotely—invaluable for minor adjustments when a single reporter is operating the camera or shooting with a 2-camera setup.

IFB Return Audio via IP*
With Interruptible FeedBack (IFB) return audio function**, the camera crew can listen to audio from remote locations via IP even while live streaming. The same audio can be heard from multiple GY-HM660 cameras simultaneously.
