About JVC GY-HM750U

The JVC GY-HM750U ProHD Compact Shoulder Solid State Camcorder is a professional ENG camera that uses the same 1/3" 3CCD sensor and 68-pin chassis as the GY-HM790. More streamlined than its studio-friendly predecessor, the GY-HM750 comes equipped with a Canon 14x zoom and is equally capable of capturing 1080i/p, 720p and 480i video to native .MP4 or .MOV files. Standard-definition .AVI and .MOV formats can also be recorded for legacy SD applications, making the camera tops in its ability to output ready-to-edit files for such NLEs as Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere.

Along with an improved Pre Rec cache function, the GY-HM750 adds a trick of its own, simultaneous recording to both of its SD/SDHC memory slots. That means instant backups or client copies, making your workflow as efficient as possible (an optional SxS recorder provides further extended capture). The camera's full complement of broadcast features also include HD-SDI output, 4:2:2 sampling and variable data and frame rates. And with its ability to easily interface with various JVC modules for live satellite uplink and HD video feeds, the GY-HM750 becomes a truly multi-purpose capture device, equally adept at shooting breaking news, sports, documentaries and other on-location events.

The GY-HM750 is equipped with a 68-pin chassis connector that allows various modules to be attached to the unit without external cabling. JVC presently offers a DVB-ASI module (KA-AS790G) and an SxS Memory Card recorder (KA-MR100G). Modules are installed to the rear panel chassis connector and are powered directly by the camera. No additional cabling is required. Modules effectively become part of the camera with no unsightly exposed cables. This design also provides for future expansion.

JVC GY-HM750U Features

  • Advanced Technologies = Higher HD Image Quality: The GY-HM750 utilizes three precisely aligned 1/3" progressive scan full HD CCDs--one each for red, green and blue primary colors-and outputs full resolution in both 720p and 1080i/p
  • Upgraded 35Mbps MPEG2 Encoder: Drawing on its long experience of developing dedicated encoders for the broadcasting industry, JVC has equipped the GY-HM750U with a powerful MPEG2 encoder capable of compressing full 1920 x 1080 HD video at up to 35 Mbps
  • Variable Frame Rate Recording (Overcrank, Undercrank): When recording in the 720p 35Mbps mode, the camera can be set to record at a frame rate different than the playback rate. This capability makes it possible to record slow or fast motion when the recording is played back at 24p or 30p
  • Standard Definition Recording Capability: Responding to the needs of the industry, the GY-HM750, in addition to its capability as an HD recorder, offers standard-definition recording for maximum flexibility
  • High-performance Canon HD lens: The GY-HM750 includes a detachable 14x Canon KT14x4.4KRSJ HD lens based on the superb optics found in more expensive HD lenses. Its superior MTF provides higher resolution than typical "stock" lenses
  • Lens Options: In addition to the GY-HM750's standard detachable 14x Canon lens, numerous lens options are available from JVC including the 13xTh13x3
  • SDHC Memory Card Recording: The GY-HM750 records on widely available SDHC Class 6 or Class 10 memory cards, presently available in capacities up to 32GB
  • Native File Recording: The GY-HM750 incorporates JVC's Native File Recording technology that stores video in the ready-to-edit file formats used by Apple's Final Cut Pro and other popular nonlinear editing systems
  • Optional SxS Media Recorder Module: The KA-MR100G optional SxS media recorder allows simultaneous shooting to one or both SDHC cards plus SxS media providing additional backup or archival recordings. This compact recorder attaches directly to the GY-HM750 without an adapter
  • Pre Rec (Retro Cache) Start Mode: In this mode, the GY-HM750 continually records up to 20 seconds in cache memory. When the trigger is pressed, the live signal is appended to the cache recording, giving the shooter a head start in getting the shot
  • Continuous Clip Mode: In this mode, the GY-HM750 creates a single clip file from multiple trigger presses. This is ideal when "in camera editing" is preferred. The complete shot sequence is instantly available as a single clip
  • JVC ProHD Clip Manager: The ProHD Clip Manager for both Mac and Windows makes it easy to manage MP4 clips on the GY-HM750's memory cards from your computer. With a few clicks of the mouse you can copy, move or delete clips, preview clip content, as well as view and edit clip metadata
  • ProHD Log and Transfer Plug-in: The ProHD Log and Transfer Plug-in is a software for Apple's Final Cut Pro that lets you drop MP4 files recorded on the GY-HM750 into the clip bin of Final Cut Pro&
  • Compact Shoulder Form Factor: Weighing only 8.2 lbs including lens, viewfinder, microphone and battery, the GY-HM750 rests comfortably on the right shoulder providing stable, steady shots
  • High Resolution LCOS viewfinder: The GY-HM750 is equipped with a new, rugged, high-resolution viewfinder based on a new .45-inch 1.22MP Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCOS) panel (852 x 480 x 3)
  • Jumbo Size 4.3" Flip-out LCD Panel: Complementing the new high resolution viewfinder is a large LCD flip-out monitor that can be used in recording, playback, clip management and menu operation
  • Built-in Clip View & Management Functions: When the camera is switched to the playback mode, a clip viewer appears on the large LCD monitor and in the VF
  • Spot Exposure Meter: When shooting very high contrast scenes, the Spot Meter can be a very useful tool, letting the videographer monitor the dynamic range of an image on the LCD/VF and adjust the exposure of an object in the frame
  • Uncompressed Audio Recording with Full Manual Control: The GY-HM750 captures audio with the same uncompromising quality as video. Two-channel 16-bit/48kHz uncompressed linear PCM audio channels are recorded via the detachable shotgun microphone, or via a pair of balanced XLR connectors
  • Patented "Focus Assist" Function: Achieving exact focus with HD signals is critical. JVC's Focus Assist turns focusing into a fast, easy and accurate process. When Focus Assist is activated, the picture in the viewfinder becomes monochrome and all objects which are in focus take on a colored edge
  • HD/SD-SDI, IEEE1394 Output: For live broadcast applications or for monitoring, the GY-HM750 provides an uncompressed, 4:2:2 full HD or down-converted SD signal via its HD/SD-SDI connector. The signal can come from either the camera or from memory playback
  • Component or Composite Video Output (selectable): Component HD signals can be output via the BNC connectors on the camera. The signal will always be in the format being captured or played back
  • DV/HDV Output via IEEE-1394L: DV signals are available through the 4-pin IEEE-1394 connector when the camera is recording or live in the SD (DV) mode, or when playing back an SD recording
  • Simultaneous DV/HDV Output via IEEE-1394: Downconverted standard-definition DV signals are available through the 4-pin IEEE-1394 connector. These signals can be recorded on most "Firewire" recorders, including the DRHD100GB100 dockable HDD recorder
  • DVB-ASI Module: The KA-AS790G Asynchronous Serial Interface (ASI) adapter provides a streaming MPEG transport stream from the camera's live HD signal, at either 19Mbps, 25Mbps or 35Mbps. The DVB-ASI compliant signal is provided via a 75 ohm BNC connector with latency under 300ms
