JVC Professional Video Releases NDI-Compatible PTZ and Handheld Cameras


JVC Professional Video is shipping its NDI-compatible PTZ and handheld cameras. The company says these latest products are ideal for local news OTA stations, broadcast newsgathering, sports broadcasts, houses of worship and event facilities, among other applications.

JVC claims the KM-IP8S4 CONNECTED CAM vMix Studio Switcher can manage at least eight NDI inputs at 1080 60P using vMix 4K licensed software for Windows 11 Pro. The 2RU device is optimized for switching live programming in SD up to full HD 1080 60P and offers several output options, including one 3G-SDI, one HDMI, four DisplayPort and a Gigabit Ethernet network port.

In addition, the new RM-LP350G CONNECTED CAM vMix Control Surface, a desktop controller for vMix that works with the JVC KM-IP8 systems to enable traditional-style switching, along with the RM-LP5G CONNECTED CAM Compact Joystick PTZ Controller, are all shipping. JVC says this device is designed with a dual-axis joystick and zoom bridge, a four-color LED multiscreen display for ease of setup and operation, and is capable of managing up to five PTZ cameras. JVC will also showcase its RM-LP100 Advanced Remote Camera Controller with joystick and rocker switch and a seven-inch touch screen panel that provides control of camera groups, presets, PTZ speed and CCU control of basic settings for up to 99 cameras.

Finally, the company recently launched an array of NDI|HX-enabled PTZ cameras, which it claims makes for a complete remote production solution combined with the workflow tools. This includes the  KY-PZ510N, KY-PZ400N and KY-PZ200N CONNECTED CAM PTZ Cameras.
