JVC Adds Portable ProHD Decoder

The BR-DE900 ProHD decoder is a new portable appliance that supports H.265 and H.264 compression standards suitable for pairing with JVC’s IP-enabled cameras.

Designed for field use, the BR-DE900 provides audio/video connectivity for ENG field reports and other video-over-IP applications. It offers “reliable” decoding of HEVC or H.264 streams up to 10-bit 4:2:2 1080p/60, with bit rates up to 50 Mbps.

Connectivity options include dual 3G-SDI, HDMI 2.0, and composite outputs, as well as multiple audio outputs.

When paired with the JVC BR-800 ProHD Broadcaster streaming server, the BR‑DE900’s H.264 codec and integrated Zixi or SMPTE 2022 Pro-MPEG stream protection technologies provide “broadcast-quality” video anywhere in the world using public networks.

Completely hardware-based decoding minimizes the decoding process cycle to minimize latency without compromising video quality. The BR-DE900 also includes integrated video scaling, frame sampling, and de-interlacing for any stream to any output resolution or frame rate, and its stream forwarding feature efficiently redistributes an incoming stream within a private LAN/WAN network.

It weighs less than three pounds and includes mounting holes for seamless installation in production flypacks or master control. The unit replaces the current BR-DE800 model, costs sub-$3k.
