JVC GY-HM190AG 4K Memory Card Camera Recorder
1/2.3-inch 12.4M CMOS Sensor
The JVC GY-HM190AG was built to deliver stunning, life-like 4K Ultra HD (3840×2160) video. JVC’s 4K CMOS sensor with 12.4M pixels delivers high sensitivity and excellent performance over a wide range of lighting conditions. Details are crisp and accurate throughout the entire image plane.
12x Optical Zoom and Seamless 24x Dynamic Zoom
The ultra high quality imagery begins with a precision 12x F1.2–3.5 optical zoom lens (35mm equivalent: 29.6–355mm). When shooting in the HD mode, Dynamic Zoom combines optical zoom and pixel mapping from a 4K image sensor to create seamless and lossless 24x zoom. This allows the camera to have a long zoom range while retaining its compact form factor.
Dynamic Zoom combines Optical Zoom plus Pixel Mapping—focusing on a smaller image area for lossless 24X Zoom.
HD-SDI (3G) and HDMI Output
JVC GY-HM190AG comes with a wide variety of connectors to meet the needs of professional applications, including HD-SDI (3G) and HDMI. Secured digital connection is assured between external devices such as a recorder or switcher. Simultaneous output from both SDI and HDMI is also possible.
4K/Ultra HD (UHD) Recording at 150Mbps and Live Output
JVC GY-HM190AG Working with 4K has never been easier. Insert an SDHC or SDXC (UHS-I Speed class 3) memory card and record hours of 4K/UHD (3840×2160) material. Recordings are made using the Quicktime (.MOV) file format and are compatible with many popular editing systems. Connect a 4K/UHD monitor with a single HDMI cable, and view the camera’s live 4K signal.
You can also play back recorded files directly from the camera. A 70Mbps recording mode is also available to record 4K footage on economical Class 10 SDHC/SDXC memory cards.

Full HD 4:2:2 Recording at 50Mbps
The ability to record H.264 4:2:2 24-60p at 50Mbps makes the GY-HM190 an ideal camera for broadcasting and production houses alike. The color accuracy of 4:2:2 enables the GY-HM190 to deliver exceptional color resolution even when images are in sharp contrast to the background. This is particularly useful when strong colors are in contrast to bright backgrounds, or in green screen usage.
Fully Customizable Settings and Full Auto Simplicity
For more advanced visual expressions, detailed image settings such as gamma and color shade can be customized. All of the customized settings are stored in the camera unit or SD card, and can be called up whenever necessary. If speed is your maximum concern, you can always go with Full Auto operation or engage Auto partially for certain functions. Reliable shooting is assured even in Auto mode.
Dual SDHC/SDXC Card Slots for Maximum Versatility
Dual SDHC/SDXC card slots make the GY-HM190 a truly versatile camcorder, offering such benefits as series recording, dual recording, and backup recording modes using reliable and cost-effective media.
• Series (relay) recording mode: Continuous recording card by card.
• Dual (simultaneous) recording mode: Recording to 2 cards at same format for backup or multi-purpose.
• Backup recording mode: While the Rec trigger is used to REC and STOP recording on one card, the other card can act as a continuous backup that overrides the pause function.* This is a unique mode highly demanded by theatrical and bridal camera crews. *During simultaneous backup recording in HD mode, the duplicate file records in the same file format and bit rate as the original.
