The JVC GY-HC500U is a handheld 4K professional camcorder for production that offers uncompromised image quality. Shoot 4K UHD with HDR, J-Log 1, and record to SSD (solid state drive) media in 10-bit Apple ProRes 422 at 4K UHD up to 60p/50p frame rates. You can also record UHD 30p/25p/24p, full HD or proxy files to SDHC/SDXC media.
The GY-HC500 CONNECTED CAM features high performance FHD live streaming with low latency and a full complement of IP remote control and viewing features. It’s truly the most advanced and versatile camcorder in its price range.
4K UHD 60p/50p Apple ProRes 422 10-bit Recording
The JVC GY-HC500U can record in Apple ProRes 422 for attention-grabbing 4K 60p/50p image creation. Apple ProRes 422 HQ offers virtually lossless intra-frame compression, which speeding up post-production. Footage is recorded in native file formats that are understood by most major editing applications without transcoding.
This is helpful for efficient workflow of editing and post process. The 4:2:2 format also provides richer color information and 10-bit recording delivers rich gradations—a definite advantage for grading work after recording.
High-Speed Recording for 1080p Slow Motion Playback
High-speed recording (1920×1080) at up to 120fps (59.94Hz)/100fps (50Hz) is available for smooth slow motion playback (up to 1/5 slow at 24p mode). It helps create artistic effects and lets you watch replays to examine sporting skills.
SSD Enables Extended Time 4K UHD 60p/50p Shooting
Large-capacity, readily-available SSDs (2.5″, M.2 SATA) are compatible, so extendedtime 4K UHD up to 60p/50p video recording is possible. Just plug it into the camera’s extended slot (using the optional SSD adapter KA-MC100G). SSD media delivers excellent sequential read speed to tackle professional workload. Highspeed transfer of huge amounts of recorded footage is possible.
Various Codecs and Recording Formats
