360 Tour

The GY-HM650SC is the first video camcorder designed to interface seamlessly with XOS Thunder HD™, the industry's premier on-site video editing platform used throughout professional and amateur sports. The integrated combination of JVC and XOS technologies enables sports organizations to add game play metadata with recordings from various camera angles—all synchronized with a single UTC time signal thus significantly reducing the time uploading practice and game footage. XOS Digital is the leading provider of digital coaching technology. Used by hundreds of professional and college sports teams, XOS Thunder HD™ is one of the most sophisticated systems available, with the ability to include positional tracking and biometric data for every athlete.

Most video applications do not require the actual time of day, but it is essential data for the metrics used in player tracking and biometrics recording systems. With its built-in GPS capability, the new JVC GY-HM650SC ProHD camera retrieves coordinated universal time (UTC) via satellite and embeds a real-time reference within the video metadata, which synchronizes multiple cameras and biometric data collected by player tracking devices. As a result, the system allows a coach to instantly find a portion of video associated with any specific biometric or positional data point.

In addition to the ability to include UTC time-stamp data within its recording, the GY-HM650SC may include specific metadata related to the type of play (offense, defense, kickoff, etc.) via an intuitive mobile GUI. The metadata is then interpreted by the XOS Thunder platform, allowing the system to automatically categorize and separate plays into appropriate folders, saving hours of post-recording cutting and tagging from the traditional coach workflow.
Mobile GUI

To avoid time consuming uploads, coaches send footage directly to the analytics platform as a stream or FTP upload after each play via 4G LTE connection or Wi-Fi using the GY-HM650SC's built-in streaming tools. As a result, footage does not have to be uploaded manually, so coaches and players can review footage as soon as the game or practice is complete. Plus, high-quality HD footage is simultaneously recorded to SD cards in the camera for backup or archive purposes.

Beyond its built-in UTC and live streaming capabilities, the GY-HM650SC camera includes all the professional features of the GY-HM650 mobile news camera. With its integrated Fujinon wide angle 23x zoom lens and three 12-bit CMOS sensors, the lightweight camera offers superior low-light performance and excellent sensitivity (F11 at 2000 lux). Audio features include a built-in stereo microphone, two XLR inputs with phantom power, shotgun mic holder, headphone jack and separate input for a wireless mic receiver.
