Other features include an optical image stabilizer, chromatic aberration correction.
Revolutionary FALCONBRID Image Processing Engine
FALCONBRID is JVC's high-speed processor for advanced video applications. Delivering tremendous processing power on a single chip, the on-board FALCONBRID engine processes large amounts of video data at exceptional speeds. Together with this technology, superiorimage quality has been realized with 2D DNR processing and compensation circuitry for wide dynamic range.
MPEG-2 and AVCHD Recording
The GY-HM600 supports both the popular MPEG-2 Long GOP 35/25/19Mbps format, widely used by television broadcasters, and the highly efficient AVCHD 24/17Mbps mode, which provides compatibility with a wide range of affordable editing systems. This means that professionals have unprecedented flexibility to meet production standards through a wide range of workflows.
High Performance Full HD 1/3-inch CMOS Sensors
At the heart of the GY-HM600 are three, 1/3-inch CMOS sensors, each capable of capturing full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution images. Offering an excellent sensitivity of F11 (60Hz) /F12 (50Hz) and a remarkable signal-to-noise ratio, the devices provide superior precision and color reproduction with minimal aberration.
Multiple File Formats for Native Workflows
Record HD or SD footage directly in ready-to-edit QuickTime MOV files which is the native file format of Apple's Final Cut Pro . JVC has eliminated one of the main obstacles to achieving a smoother, more streamlined production workflow. Native file recording ensures your footage is ready to edit the moment it's shot, resulting in a more efficient workflow and no loss of image quality. Additionally, with the MPEG-2 mode for Windows editing environments, it is possible to record in MP4 format (XDCAM Ex workflow-compatible) for direct editing in other major NLE systems, including Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere and Grass Valley Edius Pro.
Dual SDHC/SDXC Card Slots for Maximum Versatility
Dual SDHC/SDXC card slots make the GY-HM600 a truly versatile camcorder, offering such benefits as simultaneous recording and relay recording with reliable and cost-effective media. 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. It is possible to start editing footage from one card while still shooting to the other. With simultaneous recording, you can easily create backup or duplicate files as you shoot without the need for any external equipment-either for a client copy or simply for peace of mind. Additionally, while the Rec trigger is used to pause and unpause recording on one card, the other card can act as a continuous backup that overrides the pause function. SDHC/SDXC media offers the best combination of price, availability, capacity, reliability and transfer speed. With no moving parts and no pins or other extrusions, SDHC/SDXC cards are both durable and reliable, and comparefavorably with tape on a cost-per-minute basis.
Superb Portability and Compact Design
With a stylish body that fits boldly within the distinctive range of ProHD camcorders, the compact dimensions and superb portability of the GY-HM600 allow it to be used anywhere. Lightweight (2.4kg/5.3lbs operating condition), versatile and extremely easy to use, it is the perfect camcorder for next generation acquisition.
High-Resolution 920K pixels 3.5" LCD Monitor
The high-resolution 920K pixels 3.5" 16:9 aspect ratio LCD monitor provides a wide array of monitoring and setup indications. For maximum flexibility, the monitor is mounted at the top of the camera, ideal for shooting at various angles in handheld camera applications.
