JVC GY-HM660RE HD ENG live streaming camcorder


HD ENG live streaming camcorder

The GY-HM660RE is JVC’s most advanced handheld mobile news camera. Small and light enough to be used anywhere, this camera surpasses the performance of many traditional ENG-style units and offers reliable, high quality streaming without the use of a backpack or external encoder. Dual codecs make it possible to record full HD on solid state memory while simultaneously streaming the footage for live broadcast.

Newly developed 1/3-inch 3CMOS sensor

At the heart of the camera 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 colour reproduction with minimal aberration. For improved CMOS sensor performance, flash-band compensation is also supported.

Upgraded high-resolution LCD display with focus assist

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 colour (red, green or blue) to help the camera operator stay focused on the action.



Advanced IP network communication and live HD streaming

The camcorder features JVC’s latest IP communications engine, giving you remote control and monitoring of vital camera and lens functions from a tablet, smartphone, or computer anywhere in the world. Live streaming is possible in HD or SD resolutions, depending on available bandwidth. Connect your camera to an optional Wi-Fi or 4G/LTE modem and share your programme with an audience anywhere in the world via content delivery networks such as YouTube, Facebook Live, and other cloud services.
