NEW YORK—JVC Professional has announced that it will use the NAB Show New York stage to introduce its latest product, the ProHD Wireless Bridge. This video-over-IP system is designed for multi-camera live broadcasts and is compatible with JVC’s ProHD and 4KCAM streaming camera models.
The ProHD Wireless Bridge comes equipped with a WB-MCA100 camera transceiver module, which plugs into the camera’s USB connector and allows cameras to operate up to 2,000-feet from the vehicle-mounted base station. The platform can also be used with handheld JVC cameras when paired with a smaller radio module, allowing for a 400-foot range.
Remote broadcasting is available with the platform courtesy of a built-in encoder that features Zixi error correction and variable bit rate control. With the encoder, operators can also monitor connection and outgoing stream quality status through the viewfinder.
There is also a WB-CELL200 cellular uplink that can receive signals from one or more field cameras to create a virtual private network (VPN). A mobile access point (WB-MAP100) with a separate high-gain omni-directional antenna is also available to receive signals and deliver them to the cellular uplink.
Operators can combine the ProHD Wireless Bridge with JVC’s BR-800 broadcaster and BR-DE800 ProHD decoder to create a mobile back haul system.
The ProHD Wireless Bridge is currently available at a price of $5,000. JVC will showcase it at booth 1515 during NAB Show New York, which runs from Nov. 9-10 at the Javits Center.
