    JVC GY-HM250HW - House of Worship Streaming Camcorder



    The JVC GY-HM250HW is a unique, innovative and affordable professional quality camera that enables a single-operator to stream and record your church events with professional quality titling. It's designed so that one person—even a volunteer with little or no experience—can stream your services through YouTube or Facebook and simultaneously make professional quality recordings. Its Full Auto Mode handles exposure, color balance and focus, so that your operator needs only to point and shoot. The camera comes with graphic layouts for a variety of religious events. Congregation specific and event related text can easily be changed using a browser equipped device (tablet or smartphone.) Audio from your mixing console can be fed directly into the camera's balanced XLR inputs. For churches with limited equipment and personnel resources, this camera is the affordable solution for producing professional quality coverage.

    Main Features:

    • Live Streaming to internet with optional Wi-Fi or wired network adapter—no computer required!
    • Ideal for single camera, single operator production
    • Customizable lower third and full-screen graphic overlays
    • Selectable pre-loaded religious icons
    • Compatible with Verizon 4G LTE adapter for off premises streaming
    • Integrated Ultra HD 12x Zoom Lens with 24x Dynamic Zoom in HD mode
    • Full HD recording to SDHC/SDXC memory (with or without titles)
    • Options for large viewfinder, rear lens control
    • 2-channel XLR audio inputs with phantom power
    • Advanced browser based IP remote control and viewing
    • 120 fps Slow Motion Recording
    • 4K UHD recording and live output (without titles)

    Stream directly to the internet without an external computer

    The JVC GY-HM250HW features JVC's latest IP communications engine letting you stream your church events to a decoder at a cable head-end, or directly to the internet through your favorite content delivery network such as Facebook, YouTube, USTREAM, and many more. Just press one button on the camera and you're streaming to the world! Live streaming is possible in HD or lower resolutions, depending on available bandwidth. Remote control and monitoring of vital camera and lens functions is possible from a tablet, smartphone, or computer. And while streaming, the camera continues to function as a high quality, full HD camcorder giving you a pristine copy of the service with or without graphic overlay.

    The JVC GY-HM250HW produces a graphic overlay on recorded or streamed video output with graphic icons for several holy events. The overlay is produced for both the streamed and recorded video simultaneously. No external character generator is necessary.

    Full Screen Overlays and Slide Shows - New feature

    Add up to 50 full screen custom graphics (PNG or JPG format) from an SD card and store them in the camera for live streaming or recording in the HD mode. Graphics may be advanced manually or presented as a looping slideshow with timing 1-99 seconds per slide. This new feature allows users to create opening and closing graphics, scripture passages, hymn lyrics and much more. Graphics may be produced with PowerPoint or any photo editing software and saved as a series of image files. PNG graphics provide the most flexibility for creating overlays because they allow you to create transparent backgrounds. Full-screen graphics are saved at 960x540 and upscaled to 1920x1080. Stored graphics may be shown independently or concurrently with the lower third or full-screen graphics generated in the camera.

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

    The JVC GY-HM250HW 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.

    Dual SDHC/SDXC Card Slots

    The JVC GY-HM250HW creates hours of pristine recordings to affordable non-proprietary SDHC/SDXC media in a variety of image formats including 4K Ultra HD, Full HD with 4:2:2 sampling, and SD and web friendly proxy formats. Dual SDHC/SDXC card slots make it truly versatile, offering such benefits as simultaneous recording and relay recording. In relay recording mode, you can shoot the event continuously over multiple cards—when one card is full, the camcorder switches automatically and seamlessly to the other card—perfect for longer ceremonies!
