The JVC GY-HM660 ProHD Mobile News Streaming Camera features a lightweight-user-friendly design providing capacity for fast, efficient mobile newsgathering. The GY-HM660 offers built-in GPS, Wi-Fi connectivity allowing FTP file uploads, and remote control and remote viewing Apps for both iOS and Android. Also, a dual codec recording capacity allows for simultaneous HD + SD or HD + ¼ HD capture for web delivery. The built-in streaming functionality enables you to record internally, while simultaneously streaming. Please note that streaming from the camera requires that you source a Wi-Fi adapter, 4G LTE modem, or a LAN connector that connects to the camera's USB port.

The camera's imaging system consists of three 1/3" 12-bit CMOS sensors with 1920 x 1080 resolution. The camera records NTSC broadcast compatible frame rates up to 59.94p in AVCHD and integrates a 23x Fujinon autofocus zoom lens with manual focus and zoom capability with a built-in 3-position ND filter. Connections include HD-SDI and HDMI. Comprehensive recording options consist of MPEG-2, AVCHD 2.0, and SD and Proxy H.264. Two SDXC/SDHC slots are available for simultaneous dual codec recording or relay recording. A viewfinder, LCD display and built-in microphone provide additional flexibility in on-the-go shooting.

Pre Record
In this mode, the camera continually records up to 15 seconds in cache memory. When the trigger is pressed, the live signal is appended to the cached recording. This feature is useful for situations when you don't know when the action will start, and allows you to press record after the event has happened, and still capture it, without worrying about wasting recording time or overwriting your media cards.
Additional Features
  • The Interruptable Foldback (IFB) Audio channel allows the control room to communicate with on-air talent or the camera operator via an ear piece. Communication is one way, with the control able to send messages but not receive them. IFB Audio is scheduled to be available around June 2016
