We are pleased to announce that JVC Professional Video, has added support for the SRT to its CONNECTED CAM™ series of broadcast cameras. Incorporated into the GY-HC900, GY-HC500, and GY-HC550 professional cameras, this latest update further enhances the cameras’ already superior level of IP connectivity.
“Since introducing CONNECTED CAM™, we adopted the best-in-class QoS technologies to enable efficient IP-based workflows that are robust and secure,” says Edgar Shane, General Manager, Engineering, JVCKENWOOD USA Corp. “The addition of the SRT streaming protocol offers CONNECTED CAM™ customers another choice for video over IP transport in addition to our existing Zixi protocol support that’s been in place.”
SRT support for JVC CONNECTED CAM™ cameras is available as a firmware upgrade from the JVC Professional Video website.
“By introducing support for the SRT protocol, JVC CONNECTED CAM™ can leverage any network to deliver a best-in-class video streaming experience – a powerful tool for content creation,” says Jesús (Suso) Carrillo, Director SRT Alliance at Haivision. “SRT connects edge devices to the cloud in a reliable and secure way, whether it be for live newsgathering or transferring files to the studio. With this implementation, JVC CONNECTED CAM™ ensures reliable cloud-based workflows, whatever the network conditions.”
The JVC CONNECTED CAM™ Series of products leverages IP packet delivery technologies to enable bidirectional connectivity for transport of video, audio and control signals throughout the production workflow. It also allows for IFB and return video to CONNECTED CAM™ cameras in the field. The series transforms the reach and scope of professional video production. They are equally well-suited to applications as simple as streaming to a social media site or as sophisticated as acquiring and transporting ENG and EFP content to a control room, either live or via FTP.
