JVC Professional Video Introduces First Line of NDI-Compatible Broadcast Cameras
JVC Professional Video just introduced its first NDI-compatible broadcast cameras; the GY-HC500UN, GY-HC550UN and GY-HC500SPCN. The cameras join JVC’s previous HC500 Series handheld camcorders, which feature image processing and IP performance. Designed in direct response to systems integrator requests, the NDI-compatible versions ensure that broadcast studios, schools, churches and other facilities can incorporate the cameras within their existing IP infrastructure as a source for live video with tally and IP remote control capability. Current HC500 Series users can also have their cameras upgraded by JVC to implement the new NDI capabilities.
Already found in several of JVC’s newest PTZ cameras, NDI (Network Device Interface) is a technology that allows hardware- and software-based video devices to communicate and collaborate over any standard Ethernet-based network. Among the benefits of NDI is the reduction of hardware required to operate, and the ability to send multiple video streams over a single connection. It also allows for multiple video sources to be managed in real-time, with the easy-to-use NDI Discovery function of the network.
These features not only reduce overhead costs and rack space, but also ensure simplified setup and allow for greater flexibility and creativity.
