WAYNE, NJ (Nov. 10, 2015) – JVC Professional Video, a division of JVCKENWOOD USA Corporation, will showcase its Private MESH Video Network, as well as select ProHD and 4KCAM cameras that support thewireless ENG/EFP system, at Content and Communications World (Booth 1119), which runs Nov. 11-12, 2015, at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City. Designed for single and multi-camera location shoots, the IP-based solution combines JVC's advanced camera encoding technology with the Silvus Bi-Directional Radio System to transmit very high quality HD video from remote locations with extremely high streaming reliability.
“Broadcasters already rely on the HD streaming technology built into JVC cameras to produce live reports from the field,” said Larry Librach, JVC senior vice president. “Now, JVC is leading the industry again with our ability to produce multi-camera coverage of news, sports, and other live events without running camera cables. The JVC Private MESH Video Network simplifies setup without sacrificing reliability, because it resolves any access or bandwidth issues.”
JVC's Private MESH Video Network avoids bandwidth congestion issues that typical IP streaming solutions can encounter when using public Wi-Fi or broadband networks. It provides up to 85 Mbps, which is more bandwidth than traditional cellular or bonded cellular transmission systems. The private network also provides a secure direct encoded video stream, and delivers much larger transmission distances than Wi-Fi systems.
With built-in Zixi Advanced Streaming Technology (AST) featuring forward error correction and new adaptive bit rate technology, JVC’s GY-LS300, GY-HM200,GY-HM650, GY-HM850, and GY-HM890 camcorders maximize bandwidth to deliver high-quality live HD video with lower dropout and connection loss than standard UDP transmission. Two-way communication through the network allows camera setup and adjustment from remote locations, so unmanned cameras can be part of the production.
The network is simple to set up and built around the use of mobile MESH nodes. Each node in the JVC system is a Silvus Transceiver Radio, which serves as both transmitter and receiver. Best routing decisions are made automatically, and the network can be administered from any radio. The result is a flexible, self-managing, and self-healing network.
Broadcasters have several radio choices, including a camera node that directly attaches to a JVC camcorder and receives an encoded stream directly from the camera (a JVC exclusive), mobile relay node for use in vehicles, fixed relay node for more permanent installations in venues where broadcasters often return to cover live events, and destination access point node that serves primarily as the receiver for live transmission or file transfer. All streams operate at the same frequency, but each antenna transmits a unique data stream that is recovered at the receiver via sophisticated signal processing. Radio frequencies can be in either the licensed BAS band, assuring broadcasters no interference, or in the unlicensed band.
