Having already gone head-to-head with manufacturers Dejero and LiveU with a wireless camera link system, JVC has gone a step further in launching remote management tools.
JVC ProHD Mobile Bridge and ProHD Portable Bridge are bonded cellular technologies for newsgathering and multi-camera live productions which launched in November and were tested earlier this month during the Hot Chocolate 15k street race in Philadelphia.
A new command and control workstation can access all the active ‘Bridge’ cameras in an organisation and superimpose their locations over a street map with live image previews. The workstation will also allow the operator to access each Bridge camera on the network, take control, or manage settings.
JVC is also unveiling the ProHD Studio, a portable, four-channel live production and streaming system.
Designed to support HD-SDI, HDMI, or IP cameras, the ProHD Studio offers camera control and ISO recording for each camera, full PTZ control of JVC KY-PZ100 cameras, and HD programme record.
There is direct streaming integration via JVC’s Videocloud and Facebook Live. When combined with the optional Scoreplus graphics software, the ProHD Studio offers a multi-camera sports production system with overlays, scores, and slow-motion replays.
“The ProHD Studio is the component that completes JVC’s complete end-to-end news and multi-camera live production workflow,” said Craig Yanagi, product marketing manager, JVC Kenwood.
