JVC GYHD250CL17 Description:

The JVC GY-HD250U Professional HDV Camcorder is the ultimate version of JVCs ProHD camera, featuring HD-SDI, Timecode and Genlock connections. The initial version, the GY-HD100U was the first HDV camera to record true progressive images at 24 frames a second while maintaining a professional style ENG form factor. All previous features have been included in this model along with a wide array of extras that will increase overall usability.

One of the most notable improvements is the capability of recording 60 full progressive frames per second. Other features include a 14-bit A/D converter for increased picture quality, an enhanced DSP, an Anton Bauer Gold-Mount battery plate, enhanced cinema gammas for film-outs, and a built-in image flip function. Additionally, the camera can be converted into a studio camera by using the optional KA-D250U studio adapter.

The GY-HD250U is a direct result of extensive research through user based feedback and is a testament to JVCs commitment to providing the most complete video cameras for professionals.

JVC GYHD250CL17 Features:

MPEG-2 Based Encoding
JVC is one of the original developers of the MPEG-2 compression system. MPEG-2 is an interframe encoding system that combines multiple frames of digital picture data into a group of pictures (GOP). It then removes redundant information from the GOP resulting in far greater efficiency than with intraframe systems, such as DV, that compress every frame separately. JVC pioneered high definition MPEG-2 recording with its D-VHS format used by major motion picture studios for screening and playback of dailies. JVCs advanced MPEG-2 codecs are used by major television networks and satellite providers. In the GY-HD250U JVC has utilized a highly efficient MPEG-2 codec that compresses the full HD resolution without downsizing the image.

14-Bit Analog to Digital Converter
The new 14-bit A/D converter produces higher quality images, producing more accurate levels of color, shadow and highlights.

24-Frame Cine-Style Capture and Recording
Twenty-four frames per second progressive acquisition produces recorded images that have a more polished, film-like appearance than typical interlaced video cameras. Virtually all high end digital cinematography cameras utilize the 24P system. The GY-HD250U uses three 1/3" native high definition CCDs that produce a more refined HD look without scaling. Since the native 24-frame material is recorded to tape, it is possible to transfer the recordings to film without frame rate conversion. Time code is recorded in the 24P mode, so recordings made with the GY-HD250U can be edited with film based and high end digital systems with ease.

60-Frame Full Progressive Recording
Until now the preeminent capture technique for broadcast sports, 720p/60, has not been available in the HDV format. The GY-HD250U ushers in a new era of HDV recording, providing users with the ultimate sports and news recording tool. Capture full-frame goodness 60 times per second for glass-smooth action shots.

PAL-Compatible
The GY-HD250U can output both 25p and 50p for PAL compatible recording. This added multi-regional flexibility makes the camera highly versatile in a wide variety of applications.

Increased Audio Control
Audio capability has been increased with an audio limiter in manual mode, a 13-segment audio level indicator along with manual audio control within full auto shooting mode (FAS). Full auto mode can be very helpful in situations such as news gathering, where time management is critical. These extra audio controls give operators more flexibility when shooting in hostile shooting conditions.

Interchangeable Bayonet Lens
The GY-HD250U includes a bayonet mount 17x high definition Fujinon lens. Operation is the same as with all professional lenses with mechanical control of focus, zoom and iris functions. The built-in servo zoom and iris functions can also be used if desired. JVC has developed and patented a focus assist function that highlights detail in the viewfinder to aid with critical detail focusing.

Extensive User-Adjustable Video Looks
Creating a true cinematic look involves more than just recording at 24 frames per second. The cameras gamma, detail and black levels can be adjusted to the users preference. When combined with the correct lens filters and lighting techniques, film-like performance can be obtained thats tailored to the mood of the scene. There is even a skin tone detection feature that automatically reduces the amount of enhancement in facial areas so that your subjects will not have a wrinkled, television-like appearance. All custom settings can be stored on an inexpensive SD memory card and transferred to another camera if desired.

Output Choices
The user can chose between letterbox, squeeze and sidecut when outputting through the composite connection. The camera can also output 1080i/60 from any 720p/60 recorded signal through its component connection in real time!

Uncompressed HD-SDI
The GY-HD250U has all the connectors that professionals have been missing in other low-cost HDTV camcorders. For the ultimate in video transfers, this camera has an uncompressed HD-SDI connector. The serial digital BNC connector provides unparalleled control and image clarity, completely bypassing HDV compression.

Time Code
The camera is equipped with true SMPTE time code input and output. Time code from the camcorder can be sent to other recording devices (cameras, VTRs) so they are all recording with the same clock.

Genlock Synchronization
Multi-camera shoots with the GY-HD250U is no problem since the camcorder has Genlock sync. This feature allows many devices including cameras, VTRs and switchers to synchronize. The combined ability between Genlock and the GY-HD250Us unique optional characteristics make the camera ideal for small, budget conscious studios.

What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.

How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covered.

How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.

Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.

What should I do if I need extended service?
Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.

Who will perform the service on my product?
Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.

May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covered product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.

Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
