For the radio station with a static video need, JVC Professional Video has announced a new line of PTZ remote operated cameras — 4K KY-PZ400NW/NB (pictured) and HD KY-PZ200NW/NB, for late summer/fall delivery.
Both cameras provide optimal streaming image quality and performance for remote production over the internet according to JVC. They are equipped with NDI|HX and SRT streaming, H.265/H.264/MJPEG encoding and VITC (vertical interval timecode) multicamera synchronization technologies.
JVC Professional Video Vice President Joe D’Amico 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.” He explained, “(T)he 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.”
A third new camera, HD KY-PZ200W/B, provides a more affordable option for those without the need for NDI|HX.
The KY-PZ400N is equipped with a 4K 1/2.5-inch progressive scanning CMOS image sensor, has a wide angle of view (approx. 26.4mm @35mm equivalence), 0.5 Lux of minimum illumination and 16x digital zoom. The KY-PZ200N and KY-PZ200 feature an HD 1/2.8-inch progressive CMOS image sensor, as well as 20x optical zoom reaching out to 606.9mm @35mm equivalence. All three cameras have HDMI and 3G-SDI, RJ45 with PoE, RS232 and RS485 interfaces standard.
The cameras include SRT, HTTP, RTSP, RTMP/RTMPS and standard protocols along with Network Time Protocol. NTP allows for multicamera synchronization for live event production — for the mixing and streaming of concerts, shows, sports and other live productions where image synchronization is crucial.
All three cameras are available in black or white exteriors to best match the studio color scheme. They are compatible with JVC’s RM-LP100 remote camera controller, JVC’s KM-IP6000/4000 live IP production suites and a variety of other options from vMix, OBS Studio and NewTek.
Prices: KY-PZ400N — $2,599 (MSRP); KY-PZ200N — $2,099 (MSRP); and KY-PZ200 — $1,899 (MSRP).
