JVC Professional Video, a division of JVCKENWOOD USA Corporation, will unveil its new KY-PZ510 Series of PTZ cameras during NAB 2022 at the company's exclusive suite in the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. As the latest addition to JVC’s CONNECTED CAM remote production solutions, the new series includes four models, which feature 4K60p HEVC SRT streaming with multi-slice encoding technology to reduce latency and provide superior image quality. The cameras also boast a super-wide 80-degree field of view, which is perfect for studios, classrooms, corporate settings, event facilities, sports venues, and houses of worship.

The series includes the KY-PZ510 in black and white options, as well as the
KY-PZ510N (also available in black and white) with NDI 5 support. The new PTZ cameras also offer enhanced SMART auto-tracking, which can be set to automatically follow one person, and allows users to select one of multiple people within its field of view. Additionally, the incorporated Vertical Interval Time Code (VITC) with Network Time Protocol (NTP) provides the new JVC PTZ cameras with multi-camera synchronization for seamless live event production.

Using the latest HEVC technology, the cameras support multi-slice encoding to ensure higher quality video at lower bit rates for remote production (REMI) applications. The cameras also support H.264 encoding, which offers increased compatibility with a variety of hardware and software applications. Plus, the 4K60p streaming delivers natural imagery in settings with a lot of movement, such as sports (opens in new tab) and live events. 

The cameras’ wide angle of view and focal length of 21.8-261.8mm are ideal for presenting live-action events as well as the full scope of a classroom, auditorium, or house of worship. In addition, the SMART auto-tracking function of the cameras means that operators can set the camera to focus on and follow one person during a live production.

All models support Secure Reliable Transport (SRT), which is resilient to bandwidth fluctuations, data loss, and intermittent connectivity, to ensure secure and error-free video delivery over the internet. The KY-PZ510N can simultaneously output NDI, SRT, and RTMPS for hybrid local/remote workflows to deliver the highest quality distribution to the world’s most popular CDNs. 

The new KY-PZ510 PTZ cameras will be available beginning summer 2022.
