The JVC HM250ESB UHD 4K Streaming Pro Camcorder produces professional quality coverage of sporting events and broadcasts, complete with a full screen graphic overlay. Shoot a game with browser-updatable score graphics and be ready for the post-game interview with professional broadcast banners. Then stream live with your logo on the footage, or display a score overlay and game clock, all without requiring an external switcher or CG.

The GY-HM250SP also features built-in streaming with Wi-Fi and 4G connectivity that provides live access to CDNs like Facebook Live and YouTube. The camera also works as part of JVC’s S.L.I.M. studio camera system – an affordable approach to multi-camera production that uses the RM-LP100 remote camera control as a CCU for JVC IP-capable cameras.

Other new features include 4:2:2 recording for 4K/30/25p and 4K/24p, as well as 4K/60/50p HDMI output. The new tele macro shooting mode on the GY-HM250E and GY-HM250SP provides better focus on close objects than previous models, while the new ZeroConfig function provides automatic, one-click configuration of the camera when it joins the same LAN as other cameras.
