The new PTZ line-up includes a 4K model and two cameras with with NDI|HX and SRT
JVC has unveiled three new PTZ remote cameras – the 4K KY-PZ400N; the HD KY-PZ200N; and the HD KY-PZ200. The KY-PZ400N and KY-PZ200N are both with NDI|HX and SRT streaming, H.265/H.264/MJPEG encoding and VITC (Vertical Interval Timecode) multi-camera synchronisation technologies. The KY-PZ200 is without NDI|HX.
All cameras are available in black or white to best match the ambience of the venue or project.
The new JVC PTZ cameras also feature multi-camera synchronisation for live event production. Remote control capabilities are made possible through JVC’s RM-LP100 remote camera controller, JVC’s KM-IP6000/4000 Conneced Cam Studio live IP production suites, or a variety of other options from vMix, OBS Studio and NewTek.
The KY-PZ400N is equipped with a 4K 1/2.5-inch progressive scanning CMOS image sensor. It has a wide angle of view, 0.5 lux of minimum illumination and 16x digital/12x optical zoom. The KY-PZ200N and KY-PZ200 include an HD 1/2.8-inch progressive CMOS image sensor, as well as 20x optical zoom.
All three cameras have HDMI and 3G-SDI, RJ45 with PoE, RS232 and RS485 interfaces as standard.
The KY-PZ400N camera is expected to be available later this summer; while the new KY-PZ200N and KY-PZ200 are scheduled for the autumn.
John Kelly, general manager, EMEA Professional Business Solutions, JVCKENWOOD, said: “This new camera line marks many firsts for us at JVC, including our first PTZ camera to feature 4K streaming as well as our first PTZ with NDI|HX and SRT. With integrated NDI|HX technology from Vizrt Group, the JVC PTZ cameras now offer a high-quality, low-latency IP video transmission standard that is ideal for streaming in an ever-evolving media landscape. We are excited to provide this functionality in our new 4K and HD PTZ production cameras and look forward to the creative streaming possibilities it will provide our users.”
Michael Namatinia, president and general manager of NDI, adds: “NDI-enabled devices like JVC’s new PTZ NDI camera exponentially increase the video sources available for storytellers, creating efficiencies and opportunities that did not previously exist. At NDI, we have so much respect for JVC as a brand and for their quality products. This is a significant moment for the industry, for NDI and for JVC customers, who can now enjoy the benefits and freedom that IP content brings with NDI.”
