HD ENG CamcorderGY-HM660E

GY-HM660E

JVC cameras have become the standard for fast paced ENG leading the industry in on-board streaming and IP connectivity. The GY-HM660 is JVC's latest and 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 and at the same time stream the footage for live broadcast.

The GY-HM660's long (23x) wide angle lens is perfect for fast paced ENG. The camera offers superb low light performance with F12 sensitivity at @2000 lux

The GY-HM660 has JVC's latest streaming engine employing Zixi or SMPTE 2022 forward error correction (FEC). And it's the world's first camcorder with a built-in IFB audio channel. Zixi advanced streaming is included and provides forward error correction, automatic repeat request, and adaptive bitrate control. Multiple Zixi enabled cameras are easily managed with the optional ProHD Broadcaster (BR-800). The camera also provides an RTMP stream for content delivery networks such as USTREAM and YouTube. Transmission at selected resolutions, bitrates and formats is possible independent of the recording mode. Stream 1920 x 1080 (3, 5 or 12 Mpbs), 1280 x 720 (1.5 or 3Mbps) or 480i (0.8, 0.2 Mbps).
