JVC GW-SP100-KIT1 Remote camera head 4K recording system
Remote camera head 4K recording system, includes:
- GW-SP100 camcorder
- KA-SC001G 1m cable
The GW-SP100E uses JVC’s new Super 35mm CMOS 13.6 Megapixel image sensor, and features a MFT mount for flexible adaptation to lenses and other mounts to enable the camera to use a large selection of lenses. It records at HD and 4K Ultra HD, at 4:2:2 150Mbps, and supports up to 50/60p recording in both HD and 4K. HD recording in H.264 50 Mbps or AVC HD. 4K footage is recorded as a single file in AVC H.264 format at 150Mbps.
Since the camera head is separate from the recorder, this opens up many dedicated applications for the system, including use for industrial or film applications, on special vessels/cranes/trucks, or as a high-resolution microscope camera and recording system. The mini 4K camera can also be attached to a gimbal option; this may be used with a helicopter system for aerial shooting, with anti-shaking and anti-blurring technology ideal when used with a handheld system. So, while the mini 4K camera produces images suitable for cinematic applications, the system also has applications for broadcast news and could open a whole new world for broadcasters.
There’s a FOV (Field of View) menu selection too, supporting filming in a number of resolutions including Super 35mm, UHD & HD, MFT, Super 16mm and a variable selection – this allows the user to adapt their lens selection to avoid vignetting. The GW-SP100E camera system features a video unit with a foldable and detachable 7-inch HD LCD monitor and includes a wired dedicated remote and camera control panel. The recording unit also comes with a RCU to perform major operations. Ideal for any production environment, the GW-SP100 features HDMI and also 4x SDI (quad outputs). Thanks to the system’s two dual codecs and four card slots (two for 4K, two for HD), the camera can record 4K+4K and HD+HD (continuous/backup recording), making it a very flexible system. Recording is via cost-effective SDHC/SDXC cards; a single 64GB UHS-I U3 SDXC card provides around an hour of recorded 4K footage at 60p. Since the camera head is separate from the recorder, this opens up many dedicated applications for the system, including use for industrial or film applications, on special vessels/ cranes/trucks, or as a high-resolution microscope camera and recording system.
