JVC debuts GY-HM700 ProHD camcorder
JVC introduced the GY-HM700, its latest Compact Shoulder professional camcorder developed for mainstream production, electronic newsgathering and cinematography.
The camera records directly to inexpensive SDHC memory cards in the QuickTime (.MOV) format for Final Cut Pro, and optionally to SxS media compatible with Sony’s XDCAM EX format. Recording in the editing system’s native format eliminates the time-consuming transfer step and speeds up the post-production workflow.
The camera uses three precisely aligned 1/3in progressive scan full HD CCDs. It features a 1/3in optical block with Diagonal Offset and a patented exclusive Adaptive Pixel Correlation Technique that produces resolution significantly higher than previous JVC models and comparable to cameras with larger image sensors.
