JVC offers HD MPEG-2 encoder for HD ENG
At the recent NAB convention, JVC introduced the DM-JV600 HD MPEG-2 encoder for live HD remote broadcasts.
The DM-JV600 is a multi-format HDTV encoder that offers proven compatibility with multiple microwave radio systems – both analog and digital.
WRAL-TV in Raleigh, NC, is the first broadcaster to integrate the DM-JV600 encoder in their news van. Microwave radio manufacturers Broadcast Microwave Services (BMS), Microwave Radio Communications and NuComm have also tested their products with JVC’s HD MPEG-2 encoder, successfully reducing the HD payload to a level compatible with existing SD microwave and satellite systems while maintaining full-quality HD images.
With the new DM-JV600, broadcasters can now handle ENG/EFP chores with their existing news vans and/or helicopters and go straight to air in HD. JVC said the new encoder is also well-suited for satellite backhaul and contribution applications.
Incorporating advanced MPEG-2 encoding technologies exclusive to JVC, the DM-JV600 is a multi-format HDTV encoder that offers proven compatibility with multiple microwave radio systems – both analog and digital. The DM-JV600 encoder takes SMPTE-292M HD-SDI signals and encodes them into a compressed HD MPEG-2 format and provides a DVB-ASI interface.
