JVC Professional Video has expanded its live-streaming features for its GY-HM250 Series 4K camcorders.

FREMONT, CA: JVC Professional Video is a part of JVCKENWOOD USA Corporation, which has expanded its live-streaming features for its GY-HM250 Series 4K camcorders. As the first camera manufacturer to offer streaming directly from the camera, now JVC’s 250 Series 4KCAMs will have SNS video streaming with vertical and square strategies on the viewfinder to ensure an ideal image capture on a variety of platforms and devices. The organization is also adding direct streaming to YouTube Live to the GY-HM250. The firmware update also integrates more features, like Face-Only Auto Focus (AF), Digital Image Stabilizer (DIS), Zoom Ease, and Auto Color Matrix Adjustment under LED lighting is used not only for the GY-HM250 but also for GY-HM170- and GY-HM180-Series 4KCAMs.

“JVC prides itself on being at the forefront of streaming video production and we are excited to expand these capabilities within the 250 Series,” says Joe D’Amico, vice president, JVC Professional Video. “As a Facebook Live Solution Partner, we know that it’s vital to lead the charge on high-quality video content for social networking services and these forthcoming firmware updates further emphasize our support and commitment to this market.”

The JVC’s 250 Series cameras can also produce streams in vertical (606x1080 and 404x720) and square (1080x1080 and 720x720) formats. It comprises not just safe markers but actual streams with vertical and square resolutions. With such an update, the Easy Setup feature can be used by GY-HM250 users for real-time broadcasting on YouTube Live pages. Earlier it was available only for Facebook Live, and this feature permits users to stream in seconds versus having to type-in and regulate a range of settings beforehand. YouTube Live users can schedule streaming with a specified start time. The new firmware update includes a Multi-camera Score Overlay feature, particularly for the GY-HM250SP 4KCAM, which allows users to duplicate score overlay information among the primary camera and up to three replica cameras.
