The new series of robotic PTZ cameras JVC is integrated by the models KY-PZ400N and HD KY-PZ200N, both with NDI/HX and SRT streaming features. The third is the KY-PZ200, a simplified version with HD resolution.

JVC has announced three new robotic PTZ cameras for the production of content over IP, solutions specially designed for application in the corporate sector, educational and for coverage of sporting events and other live events.

The new series consists of the model with 4K resolution KY-PZ400N, followed by the KY-PZ200N with HD resolution. Both offer optimal image quality and incorporate NDI/HX and SRT streaming protocols, use H.265/H.264 or MJPEG signal compression and allow vertical interval timecode multi-camera configurations (VITC). There is a third camera option, the KY-PZ200, with HD resolution, which is a simplified version that does not include ndi/hx functionality.

All three models are available in black or white to more appropriately match production environments open to the public.

“This new series of PTZ cameras includes the first camera in the range that offers streaming in 4K, with NDI/HX and SRT protocols", declares John Kelly, general manager of Professional Business Solutions at JVCKenwood.

By integrating the advanced NDI/HX streaming technology of Vizrt Group, these cameras offer a video transmission over IP of high quality and low latency adapted to the changing environment of online diffusion.

"NDI-capable devices like these new JVC PTZ cameras allow the use of infinite video sources for story creators, creating efficiencies and opportunities that were not possible or imagined before", declares Michael Namatinia, president and CEO of NDI.

All three cameras include the usual standard protocols, in addition to SRT, HTTP, RTSP and RTMP/RTMPS. Being associated from this moment the srt technology of open source to the cameras JVC, users of these PTZ cameras will be able to take advantage of a future-proof system through the corresponding firmware updates.

The advanced streaming capabilities associated with SRT technology range from auto-repeat requests (Arq) until error correction (Fec, Forward Error Correction), that prevents the loss of packets presented by other systems. It also includes encryption of the signals to provide total protection to the contents.

How the new cameras can manage VITC code with Network Time Protocol (Ntp), it's easy to set up a multi-camera system for live event production. This feature is ideal for mixing various sources and disseminating concert content, TV shows, sporting events and other live productions where synchronization is essential.

Cameras can be controlled using the remote control panel RM-LP100 and connect to a JVC-type IP production system Connected CAM Studio KM-IP6000/4000 or other IP production systems such as vMix, OBS Studio and NewTek.

Equipped with a 1/2.5 4K CMOS sensor″ with progressive scanning, the KY-PZ400N model enjoys a wide viewing angle (equivalent to 26,4 mm in 35 Mm), a minimum illumination of 0,5 lux and a 12X/16X digital optical zoom. The KY-PZ200N and KY-PZ200 use a 1/2.8 HD CMOS sensor″ with progressive scanning, a 20X optical zoom that reaches 606,9 Mm. All three cameras feature HDMI and 3G-SDI connectivity, RJ45 with PoE, RS232 and RS485.
