Connected Cam 2/3" Studio Camcorder

The GY-HC900ST is the studio version of JVC's renowned 2/3-inch broadcast camcorder. With no compromise in image quality, it offers a level of connectivity not found in any other studio camera. It features three 2/3-inch CMOS image sensors that deliver high sensitivity, low noise and wide dynamic range. When combined with the FS-900 studio fiber system, it's the ideal choice for high-end studio and EFP applications. The camera head connects directly to the FS-900 fiber back module seamlessly via a 68-pin interface, and feeds 3G-SDI signals, control, audio, sync, and intercom to the base station.
