Jvc Smartphone Control App – Mixing graphics like sports scores and logos with live video usually requires a professional setting that includes an external CG or switcher – but JVC launches a new 4K camera that can stream directly with graphics, free switchers, using apps and smartphones or tablets.
The JVC Professional 4KCam GY-HM250U is built in a variety of different graphics for live streaming, while the GY-HM250SP adds sports-specific graphics, including the scoreboard. The GY-HM180U was also launched as a cheaper pro video camera from the same line. JVC Professional Video announces a new camera on Thursday, April 5, ahead of the National Association of Broadcasters Show 2018.

All three are built on features already found on previous models of JVC’s 4KCam line, including a 1 / 2.5-inch 4K backlit sensor with a 12x zoom lens and optical image stabilization system, but expand connectivity features. Pro-level features continue in the exterior design as well with integrated handles with a hot shoe and dual SD card slots.
For the GY-HM250U, the 4K camera adds various graphics on the screen for use with live-streaming and pre-recorded videos. Camcorders are made in graphical form with the lower third-third format along with full screen graphics and title options, allowing for some graphical control without a switcher. Graphics are controlled by a smartphone or tablet and allow up to 50 different graphics to be uploaded and stored, ready to use when recording.
GY-HM250SP has similar graphic features but is designed to knock sports. Cameras can add score overlays in a variety of different positions, with score options for soccer, baseball, hockey, soccer and volleyball. Scores can be updated with a smartphone or tablet, or the camera is also compatible with the Sportzcast Scorebot wireless scoreboard.
The first two releases also added a 60 fps 4K mode, but only when recording with HDMI output, along with 4: 2: 2 4K for 30 fps or 24 fps. The new macro mode allows better focus in close-ups. Both of these advanced models use built-in Wi-Fi and 4G LTE, including access to Facebook Live and YouTube.
The new GYHM180U doesn’t get integrated graphics features and requires HDMI output for any direct streaming. But the update did not add 3G-SDI output to what JVC said was a popular video camera model.
The three new 4KCam models will come out in May, after being presented at the 2018 NAB event next week. The GY-HM180U is the most affordable of bunches at $ 1,795 while GY-HM250U sits at $ 2,245 and GY-HM250SP at $ 2,595.
