  • This design also provides for future expansion
  • Note: Fiber and Multi-core modules specifically designed for the GY-HM790 utilize advanced features of the HM790 and are not compatible with the GY-HM750
  • Designed to Achieve Higher HD Picture Quality with JVC's Advanced Technologies:
  • The GY-HM750 utilizes three precisely aligned 1/3-inch progressive scan full HD CCDs - one each for red, green and blue primary color - and outputs full resolution in both 720p and 1080i/p
  • JVC's advanced ProHD capture technology incorporates an Adaptive Pixel Correlation Technique (APCT), and combined with TRIPLEX Offset Technology delivers exceptional resolving
  • power comparable to cameras with larger image sensors
  • The highly efficient ProHD form of H-V pixel shift, where the Blue pixels' sensor array is shifted 1/2 pixel horizontally, while the Red pixels' sensor array is shifted 1/2 pixel vertically (both referenced to the Green array), enables recovery of additional luminance detail between the photosites of each pixel
  • By applying the Adaptive Pixel Correlation Technique, the camera achieves a remarkable improvement in image texture and resolving power in the 1080i/p modes
  • The TRIPLEX/APCT system differentiates between "object directions" in high frequency areas of the image, to the extent vertical, horizontal, diagonal (left) or diagonal (right), and then applies pixel compensation for lost pixels in high frequency areas
  • Furthermore, using a global shutter, the design minimizes wobbling during quick pans and fixed pattern noise in low light conditions, contributing to a more stable image
  • 35Mbps MPEG2 Encoder:
  • Drawing on its long experience of developing dedicated encoders for the broadcasting industry, JVC has equipped the GY-HM750U with a powerful MPEG2 encoder capable of compressing full 1920 x 1080 HD video at up to 35 Mbps
  • The result is the pristine picture quality that professional users demand, from a surprisingly compact and lightweight shoulder-mount camcorder
  • MPEG2 long GOP is the most widely accepted broadcast standard compression supported by all popular editing systems and broadcast servers

  • The GY-HM750 supports all major signal formats including 1920 x 1080, 1440 x 1080, 1280 x 720, and 720 x 480
  • Variable Frame Rate Recording (Over crank, Under crank):
  • When recording in the 720p 35Mbps mode, the camera can be set to record at a frame rate different than the playback rate
  • This capability makes it possible to record slow or fast motion when the recording is played back at 24p or 30p
  • Standard Definition Recording Capability:
  • Responding to the needs of the industry, the GY-HM750U, in addition to its capability as an HD recorder, offers Standard Definition recording for maximum flexibility
  • Recording in SD provides a time-saving alternative to down-conversion of HD material for SD broadcasts, which is still an industry standard in many countries worldwide
  • This feature offers a fundamental advantage for professionals with time-sensitive SD workflows
  • High performance Canon HD lens:

  • Built-in Clip View & Management Functions:
  • When the camera is switched to the playback mode, a clip viewer appears on the large LCD monitor and in the VF
  • (This signal may also be output through the HD/SD SDI connector.) Clips are identified by time code and with a user defined filename with numeric increments
  • Detailed information is displayed about each clip including recording format, resolution, and time code start/stop, user bits, and creation date/time
  • Clips can be protected from accidental deletion or deleted if no longer needed
  • Damaged clips (due to improper eject, etc.) may be repaired with the "restore file" function
  • Though no special formatting is required, memory cards can be re-initialized in the GY-HM750 to an empty state even while the other card is recording
  • The Quick Review function is available in the record-pause mode and allows the videographer to play back the first 5 seconds or the last 5 seconds of each clip, or the entire clip
  • After playback, the last image is retained (freeze) until the menu is reactivated
  • If during Quick Review, the record trigger is pressed, playback stops and recording begins immediately
  • Spot Exposure Meter:
  • When shooting very high contrast scenes, the Spot Meter can be a very useful tool, letting the videographer monitor the dynamic range of an image on the LCD/VF and adjust the exposure of an object in the frame
  • There are 4 modes of spot metering: Max/Min, Max, Min, and Manual. In the Max/Min mode, the highest and lowest levels of the image are identified with color markers, red (H) and white (L), along with the video level (before knee & gamma)
  • The same values can be obtained individually with the Max and Min settings
  • Manual lets the videographer set the portion of the image to monitor. For example, in a scene with varied illumination, the videographer may wish to meter an individual's face, and set the exposure accordingly. As the scene changes, the exposure can be corrected precisely to the desired subject
  • Uncompressed Audio Recording with Full Manual Control:
  • The GY-HM750U captures audio with the same uncompromising quality as video
  • Two-channel 16-bit/48 kHz uncompressed linear PCM (linear pulse code modulated) audio channels are recorded via the detachable shotgun microphone, or via a pair of balanced XLR connectors
