Innovation that Meets the Demands of Professionals
— High-Resolution Image Quality
Best-in-Class High Resolution HD Reco
Three 1/3-inch Progressive CCD Design with
Triplex Offset
The three progressive CCD design provides rich,
accurate colours, while JVC original Triplex Offset
technology, in conjunction with pixel
correlation, adaptively increases the effective
resolution both horizontally and vertically by shifting
the red and blue pixels independently relative to the
green, for a sharper picture without any
corresponding loss in sensitivity. As a result,
horizontal, vertical and diagonal resolutions are
dramatically increased. Furthermore, using a global
shutter, the design minimizes wobbling during quick
pans and fixed pattern noise in low light conditions,
contributing to a more stable image.

The JVC GY-HM790E comes equipped with a
14x interchangeable HD lens from Canon.
With a focal length down to 4.4 mm (equivalent
to 31.7 mm on a 35 mm camera), the new lens
is 20% wider than previous models, and at the
telephoto end (up to 447 mm at 35 mm equivalent) it is less
susceptible to colour flaring. Focus accuracy is maintained
throughout the zoom range, and the same image brightness is
sustained without reducing the F-stop.
Advanced MPEG2 High Bit Rate Encoding

more time letting your creativity get to work.
For users of other NLE systems, including solutions from Adobe,
Avid, Canopus and Vegas, the GY-HM790E supports the MP4 file
format, which can be brought into your editing system without
re-encoding. HDV-compatible M2T files can also be created from
these MP4 files using the ProHD Clip Manager (Version 1.1).

Twin SDHC Card Slots with Seamless Continuous Recording
Loaded with two 32 GB Class-6 SDHC cards, the GY-HM790E is
good for over six hours* of continuous HD shooting across
both cards. When one card is full, the camcorder switches
seamlessly and automatically to the other card. And because cards
are hot swappable, there is in effect no limit to the continuous
shooting time in any mode, even with lower capacity cards.
Hot swappable media also means it is
possible to start editing footage from
one card while still shooting to the
other. The twin card slots also offer
the flexibility of scene-by-scene card
selection
JVC ProHD Clip Manager
The ProHD Clip Manager for both Mac and Windows makes it easy
to manage MP4 clips on the GY-HM790E's memory cards from your
computer. With a few clicks of the mouse you can copy, move or
delete clips, preview clip content, as well as view and edit clip
metadata. A thumbnail view of all the clips in the current folder
shows the content of each clip at a glance. Use the viewer to watch
the whole clip, or change the clip's index frame used for the
thumbnail. You can also manage folders to keep your clips
organized, and check the remaining free space on a card. The latest
version of ProHD Clip Manager offers an even greater level of NLE
compatibility by enabling MP4 files to be converted to m2t widely
supported by NLEs.

Innovation that Meets the Needs of Professionals —
Ease of Operation
Ease of Operation for Complete Creative Freedom
GUI
The new GUI features several improvements
that make the GY-HM790E easier to use.
All on-screen monitors can be navigated intuitively
via a four-way cross key and a central Set button.
A coloured LED ring illuminates the outer edge of
the cross keys, indicating the current camera mode. The GUI can be
viewed in both the LCD monitor and overlaid in the viewfinder.
The high-resolution picture thumbnail display makes it a simple task
to select clips visually for review, and more detailed file and file
format, frame rate, resolution and time code data.
1.22 Megapixel LCOS Viewfinder and Focus Assist Function
The GY-HM790E features a stunning new high-resolution (852 x
480 x 3) LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) 0.45" viewfinder. The 16:9
aspect ratio image is crisper and more detailed than conventional
LCD viewfinders, with higher vertical resolution and superior RGB
colour separation. Helping the camera operator stay focused on
the action is a focus assist system
that highlights the edges of objects
in the image. Also visible in the
viewfinder are indicators for the audio
input level, the battery time remaining,
and the recording time available on
each memory card.
Focus Assist
With the increased resolution of HD, accurate focusing is
critical—focusing errors that may pass unnoticed in SD video are far
more obvious when watching in HD. JVC developed Focus Assist to
make accurate HD focusing quick and easy. When Focus Assist is
switched on, the image in the viewfinder or LCD monitor becomes
monochrome and all objects that are in focus appear with coloured
edges. Keeping the important elements in the picture in focus while
shooting is greatly simplified.
Focus Assist OFF

Shooter-Friendly Controls and Layout
The control panel of the GY-HM790E has been
laid out so that all commonly used controls are
within easy reach of the operator while
shooting. Among the controls are three userdefinable buttons that can be assigned a range
of functions for instant setting.
Focus Assist ON
4.3-inch LCD Monitor
The large, high-resolution 4.3-inch 16:9 aspect ratio LCD monitor
provides a wide array of monitoring and setup indications. The
monitor’s 800 x 480 WVGA resolution, together with the easy-to-use
cross keys for GUI navigation, bring ease of use to a new level for a
professional camcorder.
Pre Rec Mode
How many times have you missed a crucial moment because you
didn't hit the record button in time? With Pre Rec enabled,
the camcorder continuously buffers up to 20 seconds of video, so
that when recording is started the cached video is included in the
recorded file, giving you up to 20 second head start.

Variable Frame Rate Recording (Over Crank, Under Crank)
When recording in the 720p 35 Mbps mode, the camera can be set
to record at a frame rate different than the playback rate.
This capability makes it possible to record slow or fast motion when
the recording is played back at 24p, 25p or 30p.
Spot Exposure Meter
When shooting high-contrast scenes,
setting the exposure accurately can
become tricky. The Spot Meter allows
you to monitor the dynamic range of
the image in various ways so that the
exposure may be controlled more accurately. A manual mode allows
a specific area of the image to be monitored for precise exposure
control of the main subject in the frame. There are four modes of
spot metering: Max/Min, Max, Min and Manual. In the Max/Min
mode, the highest and lowest levels of the image are identified with
colour markers, red (H) and white (L), along with the video level
(before knee and gamma).
Versatility and Quality of Output
SDI and IEEE1394 Output
In addition to SD composite and HD/SD component video output,
the GY-HM790E is equipped with SDI and IEEE1394 outputs.
The SDI output is via a BNC connector and can be switched between
HD and downconverted SD with embedded uncompressed audio.
The IEEE1394 output is
Composite out
via a 4-pin connector
and can also be switched
between HD and SD by menu.
The audio output is
HDV compliant in HD
mode and DV compliant
in SD mode.
Remote Camera Control Connector
The GY-HM790E is equipped with a standard
JVC 6-pin TTL interface for an optional remote
camera controller (RM-LP25U, RM-LP57U or
RM-LP55U). These units provide extensive
control options, including paint, iris, gamma
level, knee, gain, shutter, and black level.
