JVCKENWOOD has announced its new CONNECTED CAM STUDIO compact live production and streaming suites. Designed for live events such as sports, theatre and music, education and house of worship, the self-contained ‘control rooms’ feature a production switcher with either four or six IP inputs (KM-IP4100 and KM-IP6000 respectively). The systems support NDI®, as well as the SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) streaming protocol.

“The CONNECTED CAM STUDIO is another important step toward a complete IP production workflow for news, sports, education, houses of worship and other markets,” said Gustav Emrich, European Product Manager. “It’s an economical solution for live production that really allows our customers to deliver more dynamic multi-camera coverage with smaller crews.”

While designed to maximise IP workflows, the CONNECTED CAM STUDIO’s inputs also support HD-SDI and HDMI sources – four HD-SDI inputs on the KM-IP4100 and six on the KM-IP6000. Other integrated features include an audio mixer, internal CG with templates, four layers of DSK, and clip store with playback. Features specific for live sports production include automated multi-channel instant replay and slo-mo, as well as an integrated sports CG for scores and timers.

With a built-in H.264 encoder, CONNECTED CAM STUDIO supports up to 1080p streaming at up to 10 Mbps, with RTMP and MPEG-TS simultaneous output and direct streaming integration to Facebook Live and other CDNs. Output choices include dedicated HD-SDI and HDMI ports, plus an HDMI display port for multi-view or programme monitoring. The system also includes simultaneous ISO recording of all cameras, plus users can record the programme output and streaming output. 

JVC’s exclusive Zero Config features provides automatic, one-click configuration of any IP-enabled JVC camera that joins the same LAN as other JVC cameras. CONNECTED CAM STUDIO also offers integrated remote control for JVC cameras, including full PTZ control for the KY-PZ100 robotic PTZ production camera.
