    The new GY-HM660 allows reporters in the field to communicate with the studio through IFB (interruptible foldback) while streaming live HD reports from the field. JVC has also added SMPTE 2022 forward error correction for increased stream reliability. The camera also includes support for Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP), which allows a direct connection to a number of content distribution networks (CDNs) including Ustream and YouTube, together with compatibility with Streamstar's range of streaming production tools.

    At the heart of the GY-HM660 are three, newly developed 1/3-inch CMOS sensors with 2.5M pixels, each capable of capturing full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution images. Featuring 12-bit processing, an excellent sensitivity of F12 (60Hz) /F13 (50Hz) at 2000 lux, 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.

    On top of this, the GY-HM650 includes the revolutionary FALCONBRIDTM Image Processing Engine. FALCONBRIDTM is JVC's high-speed processor for advanced video applications. Delivering tremendous processing power on a single chip, the on-board engine is capable of processing large amounts of video data at exceptional speeds. The combination of FALCONBRIDTM engine, 2D DNR processing & compensation circuitry, and wide dynamic range achieve superior image quality. The GY-HM660 is equipped with two FALCONBRIDTM engines, which enable parallel processing like recording at two formats (HD + SD and HD + Web) or Live Streaming while Recording.

    There's no need to purchase expensive lenses, as the GY-HM660 is equipped with the Fujinon wide angle 23x optical zoom lens to offer sufficient magnification for shooting. Delivering superior low-light performance and ensuring brightness at the tele end, the lens offers F1.6-3.0, a focal range of 29mm-667mm (35mm equivalent) and includes servo zoom, manual focus, and iris rings, along with a four-position (clear, 1/4, 1/16 and 1/64) ND filter. Other features include an optical image stabilizer and chromatic aberration correction.

    Best of all is the live streaming capabilites of this camcorder. If your task involves mission-critical ENG applications, turn to the GY-HM660 as it is capable of streaming LIVE HD/SD and proxy video/ audio files via network up to 12Mbps. Coupled with the superior mobility of the camera, this wireless capability allows you to stream backhaul live to the newsroom or to a reliable cloud service such as Zixi, as well as content delivery networks such as USTREAM and YouTube using Wi-Fi or 4G-LTE network. All you need to do is press a button and you're streaming HD to the world. Full HD video footage recorded on the GY-HM660 can stream backhaul live to the target location using an adapter such as 4G LTE/3G modem, Wi-Fi LAN, or Ethernet, whichever is more stable and cost-effective. Such use of an adapter enables uploading video clips to and receiving Metadata (in XML) from the FTP server, remote controlling web server content, viewing and editing Metadata, and most of all for live streaming footage from anywhere in the world immediately after it is recorded.

    It's also IP workflow ready- stable, high-quality live streaming over IP is made possible thanks to support for the new SMPTE 2022 protocol. Since its introduction in 2007, the SMPTE 2022 standard has added sections to cover more types of IP video transport. Of the standard, the GY-HM660 supports the first protocol, which is forward error correction (FEC) for real-time video/audio transport over IP networks.
