JVC Professional Video (opens in new tab) is now shipping the KY-PZ510 Series PTZ cameras. As the latest addition to JVC’s CONNECTED CAM remote production solutions, the new series includes four models with 4K60P HEVC Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) streaming, perfect for studios, classrooms, corporate settings, event facilities, sports venues, and houses of worship. The cameras also feature enhanced SMART auto-tracking that follows one person and can select one of multiple people within its super-wide 80-degree field of view.

The series is comprised of the KY-PZ510 and the NDI 5-supported KY-PZ510N, each in black and white options. 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 ensure higher quality video at lower bitrates for remote production over the internet (REMI). The cameras also support H.264 and H.265/HEVC encoding, offering increased compatibility with a variety of hardware and software applications. Furthermore, the 4K60p output via both HDMI and streaming deliver ultra-clear, natural imagery in settings with a lot of movement, such as sports and live events.

The camera’s super-wide horizontal angle of view (80 degrees) and focal length of 21.8 to 261.8mm are the perfect way to present live-action events as well as the full scope of a classroom, auditorium or house of worship. Additionally, the SMART auto-tracking function of the cameras means that operators can set the camera to focus on and follow one person in the view―such as an instructor, pastor or specific person in a live production.
