JVC Camcorder Records MPEG-4 to SDHC Cards

JVC Professional Products has added a new feature to its GY-HM700 ProHD camcorder. As with the smaller GY-HM100 model, MPEG-4 files can now be recorded onto the SDHC card along with .MOV files even when a SxS memory adapter is not attached, increasing flexibility. JVC also added more powerful built-in dynamic noise reduction (DNR) to the GY-HM700 to produce high picture quality, the company says.

In combination with the optional SxS adapter, KA-MR100, the GY-HM700 offers the properties of dual media recording capability and a choice of file formats on both inexpensive and high-performance media. When the KA-MR100 media recorder is docked, it is possible to record Sony XDCAM EX compatible .MP4 files onto high-speed SxS memory cards, while simultaneously recording the same .MP4 files to SDHC cards, assuring a backup of the files, says the company.

"The option to record .MP4 files on SDHC cards expands the economic efficiencies of the camcorder," said Craig Yanagi, national marketing manager, in a statement. "Plus, the option to record a full-resolution backup copy simultaneously is a great benefit."

According to the company, the .MPEG-4 file format recorded on SDHC can be natively edited by NLE systems that support XDCAM EX. Additionally, MPEG-4 files recorded onto SxS media are compatible with the Sony XDCAM EX format. Recording in the editing system's native format eliminates the transfer step, speeding up the post-production workflow.

The new recording option and improved DNR will be standard features on all GY-HM700 camcorders moving forward, and are available as a free download for existing customers.
