New JVC ProHD Studio Delivers Portable Production and Streaming Solution
JVC Professional Video, a division of JVCKENWOOD USA Corporation, announces the ProHD Studio 4000 compact live production and streaming studio. Also available as the ProHD Studio 4000S for sports production, the self-contained, four-channel system includes a complete control room solution for smaller, budget-conscious facilities. JVC will demonstrate the new systems at the 2018 NAB Show (Booth C4315), which runs April 9-12 in Las Vegas, Nev.
The ProHD Studio 4000 includes four SD/HD-SDI inputs, four IP stream inputs, and four NDI inputs. An additional HDMI/NDI input with keying can capture an external screen, so users can include content from a smartphone or PowerPoint presentation. Users can record the program output and the streaming output, along with simultaneous ISO recording of all cameras, directly to the ProHD Studio 4000.
Unique features include automatic motion tracking for JVC KY-PZ100 PTZ cameras, as well as Zero Config, which provides automatic, one-click configuration of any IP-enabled JVC camera when it joins the same LAN as other JVC cameras. The ProHD Studio 4000 also includes an integrated remote control for JVC cameras, including full PTZ control for the KY-PZ100. For live sports production, the ProHD Studio 4000S adds automated multi-channel instant replay and slo-mo, as well as an integrated sports CG for scores and timers.
“The ProHD Studio 4000 provides an affordable multi-camera live production solution with unique features you won’t find in other products in its class,” said Joe D’Amico, vice president, JVC Professional Video. “It’s the ideal integrated production switcher for a variety of markets, from small-market news and sports broadcasts to live concerts and worship services.”
A built-in H.264 encoder 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 program monitoring.
Other features include an integrated audio mixer, internal CG with templates, four layers of DSK, and a production switcher with a choice of transitions and automated switching modes. The ProHD Studio 4000 supports instant, unlimited clip playback without transcoding, as well as unlimited playlists with PIP and split screen layouts.
The ProHD Studio 4000 has an MSRP of $5,995, while the ProHD Studio 4000S has an MSRP of $7,995. Both models will be available in June.
