WAYNE, NJ – JVC Professional Products Company, a division of JVC Americas Corp., today announced a firmware upgrade for the GY-HM600, its next-generation handheld ProHD camera. The upgrade adds new features and boosts camera performance.
Firmware upgrade improves camera’s autofocus and signal-to-noise ratio, as well as its flash band compensation, which minimizes or eliminates banding during recording when an external flash is in use.
New features include preset shooting modes, which provide optimized settings for common shooting scenarios: “Standard” mode for ideal lighting conditions and “Extended” mode with maximum gain for ENG image capture in difficult lighting conditions. In addition, the GY-HM600 now offers “AF Assist” functionality in “Auto Focus” mode.
Current GY-HM600 owners can download the file (version 0104) from pro.jvc.com/firmware. Firmware is loaded using an SDHC card (Slot B), and instructions are included with the file. Cameras currently being shipped from dealers or directly from JVC already include the firmware upgrade.
