WAYNE, NJ (Oct. 8, 2015) – JVC Professional Video, a division of JVCKENWOOD USA Corporation, will showcase its upgraded 4KCAM camera line at getgeeked New York on Oct. 15 at the Brooklyn Expo Center in Brooklyn. The flagship camcorder for the product line, the GY-LS300 offers a new gamma setting for more film-like images and an innovative Prime Zoom feature, in addition to its built-in live HD streaming to sites like Ustream and YouTube.
With exclusive Variable Scan Mapping technology, the GY-LS300 electronically adapts the camera’s Super 35 CMOS sensor to provide native support of MFT, PL, and EF mount lenses, among many others. Prime Zoom uses the camera’s hand grip zoom rocker to allow shooters to zoom in and out with fixed-focal (prime) lenses – without losing resolution or depth of field. Prime Zoom can also be used as a lens extender for zoom lenses. The new “JVC Log” gamma setting expands dynamic range by 800 percent for additional post-production flexibility.
All 4KCAM camcorders – the GY-LS300, GY-HM200, and GY-HM170 – feature a new 70 Mbps recording mode for recording 4K footage on economical Class 10 SDHC/SDXC memory cards. Other new recording modes for the GY-LS300 include Cinema 4K (4096x2180) and Cinema 2K (2048x1080), which offer a 17:9 aspect ratio for digital cinema presentations.
“The getgeeked event attracts influential and passionate tech enthusiasts,” explained Dave Walton, JVC assistant vice president, marketing communications. “We think attendees are going to love our 4KCAM cameras because they are affordably priced but deliver amazing 4K and HD video and professional features. Plus, our new 70 Mbps recording mode means shooters can use less expensive memory cards to record more 4K footage and more manageable files.”
JVC’s most affordable 4K camcorder, the GY-HM170 features a built-in 12x zoom lens (24x dynamic zoom in HD mode) with optical image stabilizer. The compact GY-HM170 features a heavy duty body with comprehensive video profile settings and professional controls.
Both the GY-LS300 and GY-HM200 include a built-in HD streaming engine with Wi-Fi and 4G LTE connectivity. With support for various streaming protocols, the cameras can stream directly various content delivery networks (CDNs) and Web sites. All three cameras include dual XLR audio inputs, integrated handle with hot shoe and dedicated microphone mount, and LCD display and color viewfinder.
