The JVC GY-HD250U Professional HDV Camcorder is the ultimate version of JVC's ProHD camera, featuring HD-SDI, Timecode and Genlock connections. The initial version, the GY-HD100U was the first HDV camera to record true progressive images at 24 frames a second while maintaining a professional style ENG form factor. All previous features have been included in this model along with a wide array of extras that will increase overall usability.

One of the most notable improvements is the capability of recording 60 full progressive frames per second. Other features include a 14-bit A/D converter for increased picture quality, an enhanced DSP, an Anton Bauer Gold-Mount battery plate, enhanced cinema gammas for film-outs, and a built-in image flip function. Additionally, the camera can be converted into a studio camera by using the optional KA-HD250U studio adapter.
