Lower-third graphic overlays are generated and controlled using a browser-equipped device, such as a tablet or smartphone. JVC also provides a software utility that lets customers upload logos or icons that are displayed in the lower-third of the recorded video. The GY-HM250ESB adds in addition score overlays for football, baseball, basketball, hockey, soccer, and volleyball can be placed in various screen positions.
