JVC GY HD200ub - using output for live display without markings on screen

I work for a church/house of worship and we recently purchased the JVC GY-HD200UB for video productions. I'd also like to use it on a semi-regular basis for live projection (into our video switcher).

Normally to do this, I throw the camera into SD 4:3 mode (since our projection screens are not widescreen) and connect it via composite to my switcher. Is there a way to get an output signal from the camera that does not have all of the markings and on-screen display items? Like the timecode, audio meters, etc. I know how to cycle most of these off so that they don't show up in the viewfinder (and hence, don't show up on the video output) but the only thing I can't figure out how to turn off (or even what they are for) are 4 little dashes in the bottom corner.

Does anyone know what I am talking about? I didn't see anything in the manual or in the menu system on the camera. What are those dashes even supposed to represent?

Yes, though I don't have my manual in front of me. If it's like the JVC HD110, then it's maybe (from memory, so DONT FLAME ME if I'm wrong!)

Menu
-LCD/Disply
--Characters on/off

something like that. experiment or skim through manual. When I have my camera in front of me it's second nature to turn it off and on, remembering it without the camera in front of me is something else.

Hi Alex,

I'd never flame if you were wrong. Or flame period. That does not lead to beneficial conversation.

I checked for anything like what you mentioned and didn't see it. What are those four dashes even for? I have no idea what they represent and it always shows 4 dashes... never more or less.

Just go to Menu>Others>Analog Out Char>set to Off. Everything should disappear including the 4 dashes which are just place markers for the VTR mode...PLAY, STOP, STBY, etc.

Best of luck,
Jeff

This worked great--thanks so much. I didn't get a chance to test it until today but it worked perfectly.
