JVC GY-HM250SP - Sports Production Streaming Camcorder

LIVE STREAMING WITH SCORE OVERLAY

JVC's GY-HM250SP is an innovative, affordable sports production camera that produces professional quality coverage of sporting events, complete with score overlay and game clock without requiring an external switcher or CG.

It's a complete sports production system contained in a compact, affordable camcorder package!

  • Records HD/UHD/Proxy to SDHC/SDXC memory
  • 120fps HD recording for slo-mo analysis
  • Options for large viewfinder, rear lens control
  • 2-channel XLR audio inputs
  • Advanced IP remote control and viewing
  • Ideal for single camera, single operator production

In-camera Score Overlays and customization
The GY-HM250SP produces a real-time score overlay on recorded and streamed HD video for a variety of popular sporting events including football, basketball, soccer, volleyball, hockey and more. The overlay is produced for both the streamed and recorded video simultaneously. The camera comes with 3 standard home/guest graphic templates.
Users have the ability for the user to manually type in the Home and Guest team names for each event.* JVC will release PC application software which will enable the user to store up to 90 team names and logo bitmaps within the camera. The user can then select "left" and "right" teams from this stored list within the camera. The cost of this PC software is included in the purchase price of the camera, and is available as a free download to owners of the GY-HM250SP.

During the game, the camera operator keeps the score updated using an external Wi-fi* connected mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet. It will also be possible for the camera to interface directly to the venue's own scoreboard controller through a wired or wireless interface.

*Optional Wi-Fi adapter or other suitable network connection required. Tablet or other browser-equipped device required.

Full Screen Overlays and Advertiser Slide Shows
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 advertising to run as banners during the game, or full screen at halftime. Introduce the team members with a slideshow of players' photos and position.
JVC 250SP sports production slideshows
Place a watermark anywhere on the screen--even while doing lower-third score overlays.
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 (1080p mode), or 640x360 and upscaled to 1280x720 (720p mode).

During the game, the camera operator keeps the score updated using an external Wi-fi* connected mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet. It will also be possible for the camera to interface directly to the venue's own scoreboard controller through a wired or wireless interface.


Integrated 12x Ultra HD Lens, 1/2.3-inch CMOS Sensor
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. This allows the camera to have a long zoom range while retaining its small form factor. Shooters will also appreciate the convenient ND filter wheel: 0, 1/4th and 1/16th positions.


Dual SDHC/SDXC Card Slots
Dual SDHC/SDXC card slots make the GY-HM250SP a truly versatile camcorder, offering such benefits as simultaneous recording and relay recording. In relay recording mode, you can shoot continuously and seamlessly over multiple cards. When one card is full, the camcorder switches seamlessly and automatically to the other card. And because cards are hot swappable, there is in effect no limit to the continuous shooting time in any mode, even with lower capacity cards.


Web Friendly (Proxy) file formats
Lower resolution H.264 files (480x270p and 960x540p) may be recorded simultaneously with full HD files, or when streaming. These files are significantly smaller than HD files, and thus are very suitable for immediate posting to the web. A file recorded in the 960 x 540 mode is approximately 1/10th the size of a full HD file recorded at 35 Mbps, and therefore takes a fraction of the time to upload post. The smaller files may be quickly imported to an iPad for easy editing using iMovie or Pinnacle Studio. Posting your game to the web has never been faster.


Advanced IP Network Communication and Streaming*
The GY-HM250SP features JVC's latest IP communications engine giving you remote control and monitoring of vital camera and lens functions from a tablet, smartphone, or computer anywhere in the world. Live streaming is possible in HD or lower resolutions, depending on available bandwidth. Sporting events may be streamed to a decoder at a cable head-end, or directly to the internet through a content delivery network such as YouTube, Ustream or Wowza server. Just press one button and you're streaming to the world! And while streaming, the camera continues to function as a high quality, full HD camcorder giving you a pristine copy of the game.
