HF R500 as camera for closed circuit setup. Will it show the what is showing in the viewfinder

I am needing a camcorder to use as a camera for a closed circuit system in a church.  Will the menus in the viewfinder show through the HDMI output. Or will it look like it does when playing back a recording.  I have used cameras before which showed the rec light in the picture.  I need a camera which doesn't do that.  Will the Vixva HF R500 work?

Yes that worked.  I didn't get the email until I had a chance to go to a store.  I worked with a sales person & we figured it out.  This will work for what I need.  I really like the menus much bettter than the camcorder I have been using.  They are much easier to follow.  Picture looks great.  I went with the HF R52 instead.
