Designed to allow a single person to shoot sporting events, overlay graphics and stream HD video. Aimed at schools with limited equipment and personnel budgets, or anyone who shoots sporting events and requires graphic overlays. The camera brings 4K Ultra HD recording and professional features in a versatile, handheld form-factor. It features a 1/2.33" BSI sensor for improved low-light capability, and it supports Ultra HD (3840x2160) resolution video at 24/30p, and 8-bit 4:2:2 Full HD 1080p video from 24p to 60p. A new 70 Mbps recording mode for 4K, allows you to record onto Class 10 SDHC/SDXC cards. The camcorder is equipped with a 12x zoom lens that provides a 35mm equivalent focal range of 29.5 to 354mm, with a 24x dynamic zoom mode available when recording HD video. Designed to fit into professional workflows, the camcorder comes complete with dual XLR audio inputs, 3G-SDI and HDMI outputs, and JVC's dual codec Advanced Streaming Technology.

    When equipped with an optional Wi-Fi or 4G LTE modem, the GY-HM200SP allows you to deliver a live video stream in the field directly from the camcorder. Through its dual codec support, the camcorder can stream live HD video to hardware decoders, Ustream, Wowza streaming engines, and ProHD Broadcaster servers powered by Zixi, while simultaneously recording video internally to SDHC/SDXC media cards. A variety of streaming protocols, including RTMP, allows delivery to popular streaming websites and content delivery networks (CDN). Zixi's Advanced Streaming Technology (AST) provides content-aware error correction and bandwidth shaping, while JVC's Streamconfidence delivers real-time feedback of LTE and streaming status in the viewfinder.

    For composing and monitoring video, the camcorder features a 3.5" LCD and a 0.24" viewfinder, both with a smart focus assist function. Additional features found on the camcorder include built-in ND filters, built-in stereo microphone, wired remote control support, and nine assignable function buttons.

    Graphic Overlay
    The GY-HM200SP can receive score information from a wirelessly connected mobile device, and display that information as a graphic overlay on the video. The camera comes with basic layouts that are fitting for use with a wide variety of sports.
    4K Ultra HD Recording at 150 Mbps
    The camcorder records up to 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160) video at 24/30p to UHS-I Speed Class 3 (U3) memory cards at 150 Mbps. Recordings are made using the QuickTime (.MOV) file format and are compatible with many popular editing systems.
    4K Ultra HD Recording at 70 Mbps
    A 70 Mb/s recording mode for 4K, allows you to record onto lower cost Class 10 SDHC/SDXC cards.
    Live 4K HDMI Output
    Connect a 4K Ultra HD monitor with a single HDMI cable and view the camera's live 4K signal. You can also playback recorded files directly from the camera. Additionally, the camcorder downconverts UHD signals to standard HD for output through the built-in SDI or HDMI connectors.
    4:2:2 Full HD Recording at 50 Mbps
    The camcorder records broadcast-quality 4:2:2 Full HD 1080p signals up to 60p at 50 Mbps, making it an ideal camera for general HD production work. 50 Mbps files are stored in the QuickTime (.MOV) format for easy editing. Conventional AVCHD (4:2:0) recording is also possible, providing wide editing compatibility in an array of standard HD and SD formats.
    Web Friendly Proxy Recording
    Lower resolution H.264 files (480x270p and 960x540p) may be recorded simultaneously with Full HD files. These files are significantly smaller than HD files, making them more suitable for immediate posting to the web. A file recorded in the 960x540 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 post. The smaller files may be quickly imported to an iPad for easy editing using iMovie or Pinnacle Studio.
    Advanced Streaming Technology
    When equipped with an optional Wi-Fi or 4G LTE high-speed broadband modem, the camcorder can deliver a live video stream directly to USTREAM and YouTube, while simultaneously recording HD video internally to SDHC/SDXC memory cards. Transmission at selected resolutions and bitrates is possible independent of the recording mode. The GY-HM200SP offers a range of streaming options from basic point-to-point to cloud streaming with advanced error correction.
