New Firmware For JVC GY-LS300 Camera

News Image
JVC has announced the Version 4.0 firmware upgrade for its popular GY-LS300 4KCAM Super 35 handheld camcorder.

This increases colour resolution to 4:2:2 in 4K mode recording and expands Ultra HD (3840x2160) output to include 50/60p. Version 4.0 provides 4:2:2 (8-bit) 4K recording at 24/25/30p onboard to SDXC media cards. In addition, IP remote function will now allow remote control and image viewing in 4K.

When using 4K 4:2:2 recording mode, the video output from the HDMI/SDI terminals is HD. The Version 4.0 firmware upgrade is free of charge for all current GY-LS300 owners and will be available in late May.

The GY-LS300 will also now have the capability to output Ultra HD at 50/60p via its HDMI port. Through JVC's partnership with Atomos, the GY-LS300 will operate seamlessly with the new Ninja Inferno and Shogun Inferno monitor recorders, triggering recording from the camera's start/stop operation. Plus, when the camera is set to J-Log1 gamma recording mode, the Atomos units will record the HDR footage and display it on their integrated seven-inch monitors.

"The upgrades included in our Version 4.0 firmware provide performance enhancements for high raster recording and IP remote capability in 4K, adding even more content creation flexibility to the GY-LS300," said Gustav Emrich, European Product Manager, JVCKENWOOD. "Seamless integration with the new Ninja Inferno will help deliver 50/60p to our customers and allow them to produce outstanding footage for a variety of 4K and UHD productions."

Designed for cinematographers, filmmakers and broadcast production departments, the GY-LS300 features JVC's 4K Super 35 CMOS sensor and an industry standard Micro Four Thirds (MFT) lens mount. With its unique Variable Scan Mapping technology, the GY-LS300 adjusts the sensor to provide native support of MFT, PL, EF and other lenses, which connect to the camera via third-party adapters. Other features include prime zoom, which allows filmmakers using fixed-focal (prime) lenses to zoom in and out without loss of resolution or depth, and a built-in HD streaming engine with Wi-Fi and 3G/4G/LTE connectivity for live HD transmission directly to hardware decoders as well as JVC VIDEOCLOUD, Facebook Live and other CDNs.

JVCVIDEOCLOUD is JVC's own platform for content hosting, management and distribution, and works seamlessly with JVC camcorders for a complete end-to-end content acquisition to delivery solution. The GY-LS300CHE forms part of JVC's extensive range of professional camcorders, which includes large sensor models, HD and 4K recording cameras, and the latest IP networking capability.

Further information on the GY-LS300CHE camcorder, and JVC's full range of professional video solutions, is available at www.jvcpro.co.uk.
