Streaming Camera with Sports Score and Broadcast Info OverlayGY-HM200ESB


The GY-HM200ESB makes sharing with your audience easier than ever. It enables single-camera sports and news coverage producing real-time game score overlays or broadcast information overlays without requiring an external CG or production switcher. For schools or small-scale local TV stations with limited equipment and personnel resources, the GY-HM200ESB is an ideal solution for producing professional-quality, single-camera coverage and streaming.


Graphic Score Overlay for Sports Coverage

The GY-HM200ESB produces a real-time score overlay on recorded or streamed video output for spor ting events including soccer. For professional soccer game coverage, three types of score graphics are available. You can manually type in the Home and Guest team names or the game title. And using JVC's PC and Mac software (SDP Generator) and an SD card, the team logo and additionally designed team name image can be stored within the camera to be displayed on the scoreboard.

Pre-installed Score Graphics for Various Sports

Not only soccer, various score templates are also pre-installed for other popular sports such as basketball, volleyball, field hockey, and more. Just like Soccer scores, team names and team logos can be input for any template.

Broadcast Info Overlay for News Coverage

Overlay is also available for broadcast applications, such as on-site news reports. Various information can be overlaid on recorded videos or streamed videos, including the programme or incident name, reporter name, station logo, or time, etc. The watermark of the station (position free) and the “LIVE” mark can also be displayed on the shoulder of the screen.

Graphic Design and Colours Customisable

For text overlay areas, four colour variation designs are pre-installed. Choose the one that matches your preference. Or you can even customise the text bar design by creating your own images and importing them to the GY-HM200ESB.

SDP Generator ( Free Software )

SDP Generator is PC and Mac software to create a data file (SDP file) used for importing your own images to the GY-HM200ESB. Prepare image data (PNG [recommended]/JPG/BMP file supported) for the watermark, team logos, station logos, or text bar design, etc., and the SDP Generator generates the SDP files. Created SDP files are imported to the camera via an SD card and you can use those customised images for overlay.

Instant Score and Information Entry using Smartphone/Tablet

During the game, the camera operator can input the score using an external Wi-Fi connected smart device such as a smartphone or tablet. With an intuitive, browser-based GUI, it’s quick and easy to keep the score updated on the spot. Before the game, team name, game title, or names, etc. can be manually typed in with the smartphone or tablet. As for broadcast information, choose the item list to be overlaid and update as required. Each overlay item is on/off selectable.

Overlay On/Off Selectable for Each Output

When the overlay is selected, you can choose whether the scoreboard or broadcast information is overlaid onto HD recording clips or output video signals such as HDMI and SDI, or both. If desired, the overlay can be placed on the streamed video only, leaving the recorded video without graphics.

Password-Protected Overlay Settings

You can protect overlay settings with a password to prevent third parties from removing any graphic on screen. No worry about unauthorised broadcast or recording.

Integrated 12x Ultra HD Lens and 1/2.3-inch CMOS Sensor

The GY-HM200ESB was built to deliver stunning, true to life video. The ultra high quality imagery begins with a precision 12x F1.2-3.5 optical zoom lens (35mm equivalent: 29.6-355mm). JVC's 4K CMOS sensor with 12.4M pixels delivers high sensitivity and excellent performance over a wide range of lighting conditions. Details are crisp and accurate throughout the entire image plane. When shooting in the HD mode, Dynamic Zoom combines optical zoom and pixel mapping to create seamless and lossless 24x zoom.

Dynamic Zoom combines Optical Zoom plus Pixel Mapping — focusing on a smaller image area for lossless 24x Zoom.

Advanced IP Network Communication and Streaming*

The GY-HM200ESB features JVC's latest IP communications engine giving you remote control and monitoring of vital camera and lens functions from a tablet, smar tphone, or computer anywhere in the world. Live streaming is possible in HD or lower resolutions, depending on available bandwidth. Live events may be streamed to a decoder at a cable head-end, or directly to the internet through an online video platform such as Facebook, YouTube, Ustream, or JVC's own VIDEOCLOUD server. And while streaming, the camera continues to function as a high quality, full HD camcorder giving you a pristine copy of the game or news report.
