In addition to Apple’s MOV files, the unit records in MP4 for other non-linear editing systems, JVC said.
The SDHC-based GY-HM100 ProHD features a 3-CCD imager and a 35MBps MPEG-2 encoder for recording at 1080p, 720p (19/35MBps) or 1080i at 25MBps. It can also record 2-megapixel still images.
Additional features include a 10x optical Fujinon lens with manual and automatic focus and aperture control, JVC’s focus assist feature and a built-in lens cover. The HM100 offers dual SDHC card slots with the ability to automatically record on a second card when the first one fills up, along with two-channel audio recording with manual level controls and a 2.8-inch LCD.
The camcorder works with a wireless remote and ships in April for $3,995.
