JVC Professional Video launched the GY-HM250 Series of PTZ cameras that stream directly to Facebook, YouTube, Twitch and other CDNs. JVC’s ongoing collaboration with the Facebook Live technology team enables users to log in to their Facebook account directly from the camera and publish livestreams with a push of the button, no PC or outboard encoders needed.

Additionally, the company’s PTZ Series is capable of broadcasting from a distance as it provides fully robotic, remote operation. These cameras enable users to control the camera from a distant location while streaming a broadcast, class session or church service. The KY-PZ100 supports Zixi and SMPTE 2022 QoS. The latest firmware adds the RTMPS protocol for live streaming to Facebook.

Featuring an upgraded communications engine, JVC’s GY-HC500 Series includes the company’s most advanced streaming solutions available. Designed to optimize both image processing and IP performance, while simultaneously providing built-in streaming and connectivity options, the 500 Series camcorders offer users advanced error correction (QoS) technologies — Zixi and SRT, which allow broadcasters to deliver high-quality streams under the most challenging conditions. For broadcasters, educators and houses of worship looking to keep a unified brand identity, the on-board graphics overlay option is available.

In addition to incorporating all the features of JVC’s standard cameras, the 500 Series also has return video and IFB capabilities. These are also fully capable production camcorders, with advanced 4K recording in the Apple ProRes format.
