The three new models – the GY-LS300 Super 35mm camcorder, GY-HM200 streaming camcorder and GY-HM170 compact camcorder – accommodate a variety of workflows with the latest advancements in 4K imaging.
The flagship camera for the 4KCAM product line, the GY-LS300, is designed for cinematographers, documentarians, and broadcast production departments. It features JVC's 4K Super 35 CMOS sensor and an industry-standard Micro Four Thirds (MFT) lens mount.
Both the GY-LS300 and GY-HM200 include a built-in HD streaming engine with Wi-Fi and 4G LTE connectivity that allows live HD transmission directly to hardware decoders, the Wowza Streaming Engine, and the ProHD Broadcaster server powered by Zixi. 

The GY-HM200 features a 1/2.3-inch BSI CMOS chip and built-in 12x zoom lens (24x dynamic zoom in HD mode) with optical image stabilizer. It delivers 4K Ultra HD, 4:2:2 Full HD (50Mbps), and SD imagery. The GY-HM200 and the GY-LS300 also include dual XLR audio inputs that are mic/line switchable with built-in phantom power, an integrated handle with hot shoe and dedicated microphone mount, and SDI and HDMI video outputs.

The GY-HM170 features a heavy-duty body with comprehensive video profile settings and controls for professional use. It records 4K Ultra HD as H.264 files, and can record HD and SD footage in a variety of resolutions and frame rates.
