JVC GY-HC500MC Manual

The GYHC500MC camcorder is the same as the GY-HC500 4K CONNECTED CAM, except it also comes with the KA-MC100G M.2 SSD Media Adapter.

The full recording capabilities of the GY-HC500 can be utilized once an M.2 SSD has been installed in the KA-MC100G and then inserted into the expansion slot of the GY-HC500. These recording capabilities include 10bit 4:2:2 59.94p to 23.38p ProRes recording in both 4K and HD. The KA-MR100G features connection access through USB-C, which makes it possible to transfer files to editing devices in a quick and simple manner.

The GY-HC500 is a handheld 4K production camcorder that offers uncompromised image quality both while it is being recorded and while it is being captured live. Additionally, the GY-HC500 features connectivity options that are not available on any other competitor’s product. Shoot in 4K ultra-HD with HDR and record in a wide variety of formats, including ProRes, to SSD or SDHC/SDXC media. When recording to SDD storage, you have the ability to capture footage in Ultra-HD ProRes 422 10-bit at 50/60p.

You may also now record in HD (1920 x 1080) using the ProRes 422 and 422HQ file formats, thanks to the most recent firmware update. The GY-HC500 CONNECTED CAM also includes a full complement of IP remote control and viewing features in addition to its high-performance 1080 60p/50p live streaming with advanced Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) QoS.

Streaming with incredibly effective HEVC/H.265 compression is now possible thanks to the encoder that can be added as an option, the KA-EN200G. It is without a doubt the most cutting-edge and adaptable camcorder available at its pricing point.

The GY-HC500 has a 1-inch CMOS 4K image sensor that enables it to produce cinematic and video content without any compromises. This large sensor contributes to artistic visual expression by providing a superior dynamic range, high S/N ratio, and high sensitivity (F11 at 2000lx). This allows for shallow depth of field ‘bokeh’ capability.
