Modular Design
The GY-HM890U is equipped with a multi-pin interface that allows you to attach optional modules without any external cables. The KA-M790G multi-core studio interface module provides a 26-pin interface compatible with JVC and Sony CCU Cables for connecting to a camera control unit. Power, camera control, intercom, tally, and a fully digital HD signal path are available through the RM-HP790 camera control unit. KA-F790 Series Remote Fiber Adapter modules are also available.

High Performance Full HD 1/3-inch CMOS Sensors
3CMOSAt the heart of the GY-HM890 are three 1/3-inch 2.07 effective-megapixel CMOS sensors, each capable of capturing full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution images. Featuring 12 bit read-out, an excellent sensitivity of F11 (60Hz) / F12 (50Hz) and a remarkable signal-to-noise ratio, the devices provide superior precision and color reproduction with minimal aberration. For improved CMOS sensor performance, flash-band compensation is also supported.

Fujinon 20x Optical Zoom Lens with OIS
The GY-HM890U is equipped with a wide-angle Fujinon lens with an impressive 20x zoom range covering a 35mm equivalent focal range of 29 to 580mm. The lens mounts onto the 1/3" bayonet lens mount, and features built-in optical image stabilization and chromatic aberration correction. To aid in low light recording, the lens offers a fast f/1.6-3.0 aperture. It also features a servo zoom and manual focus and iris rings.

FALCONBRID Image Processing Engine
The on-board FALCONBRID engine processes large amounts of video data at high speeds. Working in conjunction with 2D DNR processing and dynamic range compensation circuitry, the GY-HM890U is built to deliver high-quality images.

MPEG-2 / AVCHD Recording and Dual Codec
The camcorder supports both the popular MPEG-2 Long GOP format (at 35, 25, and 19 Mbps) used by television broadcasts, and the efficient AVCHD progressive format, compatible with a wide range of playback devices and NLE systems. This gives you the flexibility to meet a variety of workflow demands. The Dual Codec feature allows the camcorder to simultaneously record HD and SD video or HD and Web video, producing full HD files on one memory card while creating smaller, web-based files and lower resolution proxies on the other.

H.264 50 Mbps Recording
The GY-HM890U can record using the H.264 Extreme High Quality (XHQ) 50 Mbps codec for twice the compression efficiency as MPEG2. The codec offers excellent motion prediction, useful for smoother capture of fast moving subjects, with reduced block noise. The 50 Mbps bit rate is also high enough to support Full HD 1920x1080 resolutions up to 60p.
