JVC - Connected CAM - NAB 2022 - PTZ

The new JVC KY-PZ400N 4K PTZ and KY-PZ200/N HD PTZ cameras will make their global debut at NAB 2022 (23-27 April).

From a suite at the Winn-Fairway Villa Hotel, JVC will present its Connected Cam remote production ecosystem by showcasing the new KY-PZ400N 4K PTZ and KY-PZ200/N HD PTZ cameras in person for the first time, along with the GY-HC500 4K handheld camcorder and GY-HC900 2/3-inch ENG/studio camera. Edgar Shane, general manager of engineering at JVC, will be the company’s host at the Las Vegas event, coordinating a number of remote production demonstrations on-site.

The JVC new PTZs integrate SRT video transport with enhanced error correction, resistant to Internet congestion, packet loss and high jitter. In addition, they feature next-generation HEVC encoding, which maintains SDI video quality while sending video over the Internet at reduced data rates. In addition, each stream includes Vertical Integral Timecode (VITC) synchronised with Network Time Protocol (NTP) for remote synchronisation of multiple cameras in a live production.

Thanks to Vizrt Group’s integrated NDI|HX technology, the KY-PZ400NW/NB and KY-PZ200NW/NB CONNECTED CAM 4K PTZ cameras offer plug-and-play compatibility with Newtek TriCaster, vMix and a growing list of applications that support NDI, such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams and many others. The KY-PZ200N and KY-PZ200 also support UVC (USB Video Class), allowing the cameras to be used as webcams for more secretive remote conferencing and chatting.

Wide selection of cameras

In addition to PTZ, JVC will also be bringing its GY-HC900 and GY-HC500 cameras to NAB. Both offer integrated SRT encoders, as well as a variety of on-board recording capabilities, such as H.264 and 10-bit 4:2:2 ProRes, HDR imaging and remote control functionality. Built-in recording features include dual memory card slots for standard SDHX/SDXC media, optional SSDs and flexible recording options such as redundant, relay and backup modes.

The GY-HC900 camera with three 2/3-inch CMOS accepts a variety of B4-mount broadcast lenses, while the GY-HC500 features a 20x optical zoom with a 40x lossless option when recording in HD mode. Both models offer hybrid workflow options, such as local studio and remote production and simultaneous recording and broadcasting, and are popular for sports, live events and broadcast applications.

Shane, director of engineering at JVC, was keen to emphasise that “After a much-anticipated three years, we are excited to once again join our industry colleagues at the NAB Show. We look forward to showcasing our latest cameras, including our PTZ, 500 Series and 900 Series Connected Cams.”
