A free firmware upgrade (ver 4.4) for the GY-HM650 is available to download now from JVC, significantly improving the performance of the camcorder. Version 4.4 brings significant new features and performance upgrades to JVC's most popular streaming camcorder:

  • RTMP protocol for streaming directly to USTREAM, YouTube, etc.
  • Zixi Adaptive Bitrate provides stable streaming by controlling bitrate
  • High bitrate streaming UDP 12 Mbps & Zixi 5 Mbps
  • FTP Resume function
  • Multiple address (server) settings for streaming
  • Cellular APN setting with GUI menu
  • Added Zebra function on LCD
  • Ease function on preset zoom for smooth start and stop of zooming
  • 720p MXF (MPEG2) recording
  • Color change for simultaneous use of Zebra and Focus Assist
  • Supports editing on Edius 6.0/6.5

  • The GY-HM650 also makes live video streaming possible, thanks to the previous firmware update v.2.0. Now, when equipped with wi-fi, 4G or 3G connectivity via USB, the GY-HM650 can stream live video transmissions in the background while continuing to record footage.

    Equipped with three, 1/3-inch 1920x1080 12-bit CMOS sensors and dual codecs, the lightweight GY-HM650 records HD or SD footage in multiple file formats, including native XDCAM EX™ (.MP4), Final Cut Pro™ (.MOV), and AVCHD, to non-proprietary SDHC or SDXC media cards. It also records .MXF files with rich descriptive metadata that is optimized for asset management. The camera also includes HD-SDI and HDMI outputs for easy monitoring of HD footage and is upgradeable too – if you already own a GY-HM650, it can simply be upgraded via our website, providing the latest streaming functionality together with any future updates for free.

    With a Fujinon wide angle 23x zoom lens, superior low-light performance, and excellent sensitivity (F12 at 2000 lux), the GY-HM650 has ideal optics for challenging shooting environments. The HD lens has a focal range of 29mm-667mm (35mm equivalent) and includes manual focus, servo zoom, and iris rings, along with three ND filters and a removable hood. Other features include JVC’s auto-focus with face detection and an optical image stabilizer.
