Version 4.0 firmware for the GY-HM650 is now available to download for free from our support site. It includes adaptive bit rate technology for more reliable streaming, support for Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) to allow a direct connection to a number of content distribution networks (CDNs) for live streaming, and a high quality 12 Mbps mode.

Note: Please use the European firmware only. For information about WiFi and GSM adapters, please download the PDF below.


Equipped with three, 1/3-inch 1920x1080 12-bit CMOS sensors and dual codecs, the lightweight GY-HM650 records HD or SD footage in multiple file formats, including native XDCAM EX™ (.MP4), Final Cut Pro™ (.MOV), and AVCHD, to non-proprietary SDHC or SDXC media cards. It also records .MXF files with rich descriptive metadata that is optimized for asset management. The camera also includes HD-SDI and HDMI outputs for easy monitoring of HD footage and is upgradeable too – if you already own a GY-HM650, it can simply be upgraded via our website, providing the latest streaming functionality together with any future updates for free.

With a Fujinon wide angle 23x zoom lens, superior low-light performance, and excellent sensitivity (F12 at 2000 lux), the GY-HM650 has ideal optics for challenging shooting environments. The HD lens has a focal range of 29mm-667mm (35mm equivalent) and includes manual focus, servo zoom, and iris rings, along with three ND filters and a removable hood. Other features include JVC’s auto-focus with face detection and an optical image stabilizer. 

Key Features

  • Built-in Wi-Fi and FTP connectivity
  • Dual Codec: Simultaneously record HD + SD or HD + ¼HD (for Web delivery)
  • 1/3-inch 12-bit CMOS sensors (1920x1080 x 3)
  • F12 sensitivity
  • 23x Fujinon Auto focus zoom lens with manual functions
  • Professional switch layout and comprehensive video settings
  • Wide media format compatibility:
    .MXF with rich Metadata (optimized for asset management)
    .MOV (Final Cut Pro)
    .MP4 (XDCAM EX™)
    AVCHD

Includes battery x1, AC adapter x1, AV cable x1


Features from v.3.05 firmware

  • 1080p 50Mbps recording in Extreme-High Quality (XHQ) mode, i.e., virtually lossless H.264 recordings with high bit rates of 50Mbps.
  • Enhanced Auto Focus System with selection of focus area.
  • Advanced Streaming Functions including ZIXI data transfer technology and additional bit rates in various resolutions (GY-HM650 only).


Features from firmware update v.2.0:

  • Background FTP transmission
    Once file transmission via FTP has started, you can continue your recording session. The progress of the FTP transmission (time remaining and status in case of an interruption) is displayed on the LCD throughout the recording. The following secure protocols are supported by FTP: FTP/FTPS/FTPES/SFTP„

  • Clip Trimming
    Would you like to select a particular scene of your recordings? Just switch to the playback mode and crop the file to the desired image or scene. Since the camcorder creates a new cropped file, your original file will remain the same. Sending only the content you need allows you to benefit from shorter FTP transmission times and save data transfer cost.

  • Live streaming
    The dual encoder makes it possible to record on the main SD card and run a live video stream over the network at the same time. Just set up a network connection via wired adapter (USB Ethernet adapter), LAN or WIFI, and, depending on your country, by means of GSM*

    *A USB GSM dongle will be required. Please contact us or visit our website for hardware and providers support.

  • Current streaming formats
    1920x1080/60i/50i with 5 or 2.5 Mbps
    1280x720 /30p/25p with 3 or 1.5 Mbps
    720x480/576i with 0.8 Mbps
    Audio AAC in HD with 128kbps and SD with 64kbps

  • AVCHD mode
    As of this latest firmware update, your multi-format camcorder supports two additional HD formats:
    1440x1080 with 9 Mbps, called LP mode
    1440x1080 with 5 Mbps, called EP mode
    More flexibility and functionality when it comes to recording.

  • Backup recording
    The above mentioned new format can also be used along with backup recording.

  • Recording in two different HD formats
    Thanks to the added AVCHD codec and the integrated dual encoder, you can now record your images in two different HD formats at the same time.

  • Additional Proxy Video Web Format
    We added an ½ HD (960x540 pixel) 30p/25p/24p 3Mbps MOV/H.264 format to the functional scope. Experience web-format imaging at a whole new standard of high quality.

  • SD recording quality
    A number of improvements to the encoder provides for optimal SD recording quality.

  • Metadata
    While the recent updates included the option to add Metadata via the remote features, users are now also able to apply a control function for that data that can be called up directly on the status display, so that you always know, which of the metadata is currently being in use. Moreover, thanks to a number of “clear metadata” features, you will now be enabled to start a whole new recording session, without first having to call up said data. Metadata can also be added offline via Metadata editing tools, which are available as download from our website and suitable for both, MAC and PC. Create or edit the metadata directly on your PC, save it on your FTP server, and have it imported to your camcorder via the FTP Metadata Import.

  • Expanded Focus
    This new feature enables you to zoom in on the image at the touch of a button, so that you can apply the focus in a much easier and precise way.

  • Favorites Menu
    Calling up your favorites list has never been easier and simpler: All it takes, is a long push on the menu button and your favorites list´s going to show up right away.

  • Knee Point settings
    2.5 % steps ranging from 85% to 100% allow you to widen the scope of fine adjustments when it comes to the knee point settings.

  • White peak
    The functional scope of the white peak set up has been expanded to 103%.

  • Overexposure warning
    We also added a new function to the LCD or view finder: Provided you´d like to reduce the light factor, just apply the ND filter, as this setting enables you to add an alert function in the form of a blinking “F” whenever the value exceeds the capacity which is limited to F8. This is particularly important when it comes to your vision, as your iris gets smaller and thus may lead to a “washing out” of the image area.

  • More flexibility thanks to new REC-button assignment
    Since some of you missed a white balance button next to the front REC-button, we changed the REC-button assignment, thus it's possible to use the button for both functions, REC and White Balance.

  • GPS information
    GPS information can be shown as a thumbnail in the display status menu.

  • More remote and control features via network 
    The remote and control functions come up with a number of more features, which are usually only listed in the specifications of high-grade studio RCUs. From adjustments to the lens and gain factor over white balance through to paint options, there´s are lots of new functions to explore. The web-based built-in controller even allows you to manage your network settings. Just imagine, you could run a live stream and, at the same time, control your camcorder from any place thanks to a return internet connection.

  • Camcorder menu is finally available in multi-languages
    English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Russian languages are available!
