JVC Unveils All-Inclusive Sports Production System Based on GY-HM200SP Sports Camcorder
Designed for single-camera coverage of local sports, the new GYHM200SCOREBOT sports production system provides a complete streaming and recording solution that includes a real-time graphics overlay with automatic scorekeeping
JVC Professional Video, a division of JVCKENWOOD USA Corporation, today announced it is offering an all-inclusive system combining the popular GY-HM200SP sports production camcorder and Sportzcast Scorebot4100 scoreboard interface unit. Designed for single-camera coverage of local sports, the new GYHM200SCOREBOT sports production system provides a complete streaming and recording solution that includes a real-time graphics overlay with automatic scorekeeping.
The GY-HM200SP’s built-in score overlay, which supports user personalized team names and logos, produces game graphics without the use of an external CG or production switcher. Once integrated with the scoreboard at a venue, the Scorebot receives and processes the score and game sequence information, then transfers it wirelessly to the camcorder in real time. As a result, the camera operator does not need to manually input score information.
“With the GY-HM200SP, JVC has significantly improved production values for single-camera game coverage for high schools, colleges, and PEG channels with limited resources,” said Craig Yanagi, product marketing manager, Professional Video Division, JVCKENWOOD USA Corp. “Our affordable GYHM200SCOREBOT is the industry's only end-to-end, single-camera sporting event coverage system that provides a built-in score overlay and an interface with the facility scoreboard, so scorekeeping is updated automatically and the camera operator can stay focused on the action.”
Beyond its built-in graphics, the GY-HM200SP includes the extensive professional feature set of JVC’s popular GY-HM200 4KCAM camcorder. Its built-in streaming engine with Wi-Fi and 4G LTE connectivity allows live HD transmission to the JVC VIDEOCLOUD, Facebook Live, and YouTube, as well as broadcast IP decoders. Its integrated 12x zoom lens includes an optical image stabilizer and 24x dynamic zoom in HD mode. Other features include dual XLR audio inputs, integrated handle with hot shoe and dedicated microphone mount, and a variety of 4K, HD, and SD recording modes to economical Class 10 SDHC/SDXC memory cards.
The new GYHM200SCOREBOT sports production system has an MSRP of $4,450 and is available now through authorized JVC Professional Video dealers.

Designed to enhance single-camera HD sports coverage, the camera produces a real-time score overlay on recorded and streamed video output without the use of an external CG and production switcher
The camera was purchased earlier this year to simplify production and reduce crew and gear requirements for live, boat-based coverage of the school's four rowing teams
With its unique built-in graphics overlay, the JVC GY-HM200SP has eliminated the need for a separate "scoreboard camera" during productions, which in turn eliminated sync issues that slowed post production
