The GY-HM250ESB’s score overlays for football, baseball, basketball, hockey, soccer and volleyball can be placed in various screen positions. Camera operators can update the score using an external Wi-Fi connected smartphone or tablet, or receive real-time scoreboard data automatically when wirelessly connected to a Sportzcast Scorebot that is integrated with the venue’s scoreboard.
Both the GY-HM250E and GY-HM250ESB also feature built-in streaming with Wi-Fi and 4G connectivity that provides live access to CDNs like Facebook Live and YouTube. The cameras also work as part of JVC’s S.L.I.M. studio camera system – an affordable approach to multi-camera production that uses the RM-LP100 remote camera control as a CCU for JVC IP-capable cameras.
Other new features include 4:2:2 recording for 4K/30/25p and 4K/24p, as well as 4K/60/50p HDMI output. The new tele macro shooting mode on the GY-HM250E and GY-HM250ESB provides better focus on close objects than previous models, while the new Zero Config function provides automatic, one-click configuration of the camera when it joins the same LAN as other cameras.

Users can record on two cards simultaneously for instant backup or use relay mode for extended recording time. Other features include dual XLR audio inputs, integrated handle with hot shoe, built-in microphone and dedicated shotgun mic mount, and viewfinder and LCD displays.
