JVC Professional Products Company, a division of JVC Americas Corp., says it has added a Verizon 4G LTE modem to the GY-HM650 2.0 handheld mobile news camera enabling the camera to send live HD transmissions.
The Verizon 4G LTE modem connects directly to the GY-HM650 2.0’s USB, and once connected the camera can transmit footage to a broadcast facility in real time, no add-on boxes or backpacks required, while simultaneously recording a full HD file to solid-state memory cards, JVC says.
Leveraging JVC’s exclusive dual codec design, as well as built-in file transfer protocol and Wi-Fi connectivity, the upgraded GY-HM650 allows live transmission or file transfers in the background as shooters continue to record footage in their normal workflow, the company says.
“With two independent encoders, the GY-HM650 can stream live HD video and record to SDHC or SDXC cards simultaneously without any additional equipment,” says Edgar Shane, JVC Professional Products’ general manager of engineering. “Using a broadband modem, customers can transmit live news stand ups now and deliver pristine quality HD footage to the station via FTP later.”
Verizon 4G LTE modems plug directly into the GY-HM650 for quick access to Verizon’s high-speed network, according to JVC. The camera supports live video streaming of 1080i, 720p and lower Web-friendly resolutions at various bit rates to adapt to network conditions, the company says. Connection status, including signal strength, connection type and Internet protocol address, can be monitored from the camera’s viewfinder and 3.5-inch LCD touch screen.
