JVC ProHD Fiber Systems to Support Multicamera Video-Over-IP Workflows

JVC Professional Video is introducing a new fiber studio system based on its 800 Series ProHD cameras at the 2016 NAB Show.

Built exclusively for JVC by MultiDyne Video & Fiber-Optic Systems, the system supports 3G-SDI 1080p/60 camera feeds and returns, and takes advantage of the camera’s built-in streaming engine for video-over-IP functionality.

The camera module connects directly to the back of the GY-HM890 camcorder via 68-pin interface – no external cables required – for full studio functionality. It transports multiple bi-directional 3G-SDI signals as well as control, audio, sync and intercom between the camera and the FS-900 Base Station.

Up to three cameras are supported by the Base Station, and its redundant power supplies provide up to 150 watts for each camera, as well as prompters and talent monitors.

Its three-in-one configuration provides a more cost efficient solution than other multi-camera solutions previously offered by JVC and other manufacturers.

With built-in gigabit Ethernet, the lightweight, 2 RU Base Station also allows video-over-IP, control and advanced configuration. The 1080p video signals are ideal for webcasts, virtual sets and image magnification (I-MAG) applications.

The system integrates easily with any studio, mobile truck or portable flypack, and connects directly with a facility’s switcher, router, intercom and house sync systems.

JVC will offer an optional multi-viewer card for the Base Station, and the module will be available in multiple configurations to address specific customer cable and intercom requirements. Both the camera module and base station will be available in June 2016, with pricing starting at under $32,000 for a three-camera system.
