New Upgrades for JVC Mobile News ProHD Cameras

Quinto Communications, the Australian and New Zealand distributor for JVC Professional Products has announced the availability of a new firmware upgrade for the JVC GY-HM600 and GY-HM650 mobile news cameras. Available through the JVC Web site, the upgrade is free to all current GY-HM600 and GY-HM650 owners.

For both cameras, the upgrade includes 1080p/60 recording modes, Extreme High Quality (XHQ) recording with virtually lossless 50 Mbps H.264 (.MOV), and large file support for SDXC media cards. The firmware upgrade adds Zixi advanced streaming capabilities and live RTSP/RTP format streaming to the GY-HM650.

Using Zixi’s new Advanced Streaming Technology (AST), the GY-HM650 3.0 provides content-aware error correction and bandwidth shaping. Proprietary Zixi algorithms maximise bandwidth to ensure reliable transmission, and advanced content aware error correction compensates for up to 30 percent packet loss.
