JVC’s unique Variable Scan Mapping technology maintains the native angle of view for a variety of lenses, including Super35, MFT, and Super16. As a result, lens options for the camera are almost limitless.

The versatile GY-HM200 offers an outstanding combination of professional features and performance for any shooting scenario. It delivers 4K Ultra HD, 4:2:2 Full HD (50Mbps), and SD imagery with a 1/2.33-inch BSI CMOS chip.

The JVC GY-HM200 is also JVC’s most affordable streaming camcorder, and can stream instantly to Ustream or other destinations while simultaneously recording to SDHC/SDXC media cards. A built-in HD streaming engine with Wi-Fi and 4G LTE connectivity allows live HD transmission directly from the GY-HM200 and GY-LS300 to hardware decoders, Ustream, Wowza Streaming Engine, and ProHD Broadcaster server powered by Zixi. A variety of streaming protocols including RTMP allows delivering content directly to popular streaming Web sites and content delivery networks (CDN).
