2/3" 3-CCD Native 16:9/4:3 Switchable DV Camcorder
New Product News
The New GY-DV700W Professional DV 2/3" 3-CCD Camcorder From JVC — Setting
The Standard For ENG/EFP/Electronic Cinematography. With Widescreen Capability,
Comprehensive Professional Features, and Broadcast-Standard Performance.
Specifically designed to meet increasing demands for affordable, high-performance ENG/EFP/Electronic Cinematography, the
GY-DV700W is equipped with JVC’s original high performance dual-pipeline 14-bit DSP (Digital Signal Processing), making it suitable for
the most demanding production applications. Switchable between its native 16:9 aspect ratio and the conventional 4:3 ratio, this
impressive unit features three 2/3-inch interline transfer CCDs to assure the highest possible picture quality right from the start. SMPTE or EBU
TC input/output allows synchronization of multiple cameras, while enhanced sensitivity of F11@2000 lux provides broadcasters and
independent producers with the additional functionality they need. Maximum creative flexibility is assured, too, thanks to a versatile design
that lets you use matte boxes and prime lenses. Other professional, broadcast-standard features include manual gamma, knee and
master black adjustments, Full Auto White, Black Stretch/Compression, zebra level indicator and LoLux low light performance. And, of
course, this full-featured professional camcorder is also equipped with all the essentials — like bidirectional IEEE 1394, two 48 kHz 16-bit
digital PCM audio channels, time code input/output and a built-in SMPTE or EBU time code reader/generator.

2/3" bayonet lens mount
High quality & resolution
The GY-DV700W uses a standard professional 2/3" bayonet lens mount, making it
compatible with the widest range of lenses, including prime lenses and matte boxes.
The GY-DV700W incorporates three 2/3" 480,000 (NTSC)/570,000 (PAL) pixel
interline-transfer CCDs and a 2/3" F1.4 RGB prism to deliver exceptionally sharp
pictures. Each CCD is equipped with highly advanced circuitry which virtually
eliminates vertical smear when shooting bright lights in a dark room. Lag and image
burn are also reduced to undetectable levels.
SMPTE or EBU time code input/output
These connectors allow you to synchronize multiple camcorders using a genlock
Native 16:9/4:3 switchable
Compact, lightweight design
With more and more high-end television production and independent movie
producers turning to digital video for their production needs, the picture quality
obtained by shooting using native 16:9 aspect ratio CCD’s is indispensable.
Only 3 kg (6.6 lbs.) for the main unit
High-quality performance
Because it uses MiniDV tapes, the GY-DV700W is able to pack a lot of performance
into a very compact body that weighs only 3 kg (6.6 lbs.). When fully loaded, it
weights only 5.5 kg (12.1 lbs.) or less including lens, viewfinder, battery pack and
tape. The use of a DC-DC power supply trims the unit’s dimensions still further.
Professional DV recording on a MiniDV tape
The GY-DV700W combines the convenience and affordability of MiniDV with the
high-quality camera performance you need for professional use. Up to 80 minutes*
of high-quality 8-bit, 13.5 kHz, 4:1:1 (NTSC)/4:2:0 (PAL) DV component digital
images can be recorded on a single MiniDV tape, assuring you the high-quality, nondegradable images you need for top results in post-production editing.
* With an MDV-80 tape.
High-quality PCM digital audio
To complement its superior pictures, the GY-DV700W offers outstanding digital
PCM sound. Audio signals are locked with video signals for smooth editing. You
can choose two 16-bit 48-kHz channels or two 12-bit, 32-kHz channels with a
dynamic range of more than 85 dB.

LOLUX 0.75 lux
When activated, the LOLUX mode increases sensitivity with almost no increase in
noise. LOLUX lets you shoot in low light conditions, so you can capture high-quality
video footage with excellent color balance at just 0.75 lux illumination.

Versatile functions
IEEE 1394 input/output*
This allows high-quality compressed digital video signal transfer directly to a
computer, a non-linear editing system, or to another DV recorder. Producers can
now digitally spool directly to a non-linear editing platform without loss, and then
transfer the finished product directly back to video tape using the camera alone.
