JVC To Unveil HEVC Encoder For Connected Cam Series

At the 2020 NAB Show, JVC Professional Video will spotlight a new HEVC encoder for its Connected Cam series of camcorders. The plug-in H.265 module reduces file sizes and increases live streaming efficiency directly from the camera by 50 percent, according to the company.

The KA-EN200G H.265/HEVC encoder enables high-quality, low bit-rate streaming via a plug-in module that fits into an expansion slot on the company’s GY-HC900, GY-HC500 and GY-HC550 camcorders.

Owing to its higher level of efficiency, High Efficiency Video Compression (HEVC) offers higher quality images with reduced bandwidth and allows shooters to use 10-bit 4:2:2 rather than 8-bit 4:2:0 sampling.

Edgar Shane, General Manager, Engineering, at JVCKENWOOD USA Corp., said JVC recognizes that HEVC offers many advantages over the H.264/AVC compression standard. By offering this new plug-in module, JVC allows its customers to future-proof the investment they’ve made in JVC’s Connected Cam line.

Connected Cam camcorders are designed to optimize both video recording and IP performance. All 500 and 900 models provide reliable 1080p streaming and SMPTE 2022 error correction. Selected models also add Zixi error correction with FEC, ARQ and adaptive bitrate for reliable transmission. Each camera in the series features built-in streaming encoders with LAN/Wi-Fi connectivity to facilitate video-over-IP delivery directly from the camera—no backpacks or encoders are needed.
