JVC VIDEOCLOUD Online Video And Live Streaming Platform

News Image
At IBC 2016, JVC introduced the JVC VIDEOCLOUD, an online video and live streaming platform.

Ideal for small businesses and creative individuals, it offers a simple, powerful content management system for live video or VoD, skinnable players, website builder tools and rich performance analysis tools. JVC VIDEOCLOUD enables you to stream live from JVC's range of streaming camcorders, along with encoders from other manufacturers, and you can also stream directly from the Streamstar range of multi-camera production tools.

JVC VIDEOCLOUD lets you broadcast live events from anywhere in the world and use cloud-based transcoding to provide the best user experience possible. JVC VIDEOCLOUD also manages your video library by enabling categorizing, metadata adding and managing access rights, all from a computer or smart phone. There are a range of monetising options built in too, enabling customisation of your users' viewing experience, with tools to help users configure their own website, add banners or video advertising.

"We wanted to provide JVC customers with their own platform," explained European Product Manager, Gustav Emrich. "This means that, in turn, they are able to use the tools within JVC VIDEOCLOUD in order to provide a full service to their own customers, by customising and branding their own online channel. There's a big transition to IP happening throughout the industry, for acquisition, content management and distribution, and we have been at the forefront of this since we launched our first live streaming camcorder four years ago. The JVC VIDEOCLOUD platform was the next logical step."

One clever function of the JVC VIDEOCLOUD platform is the ability to learn about its audience. Users receive detailed insight into their viewers' behaviour, including metrics like ATS, regional split, devices and many others. It's also possible to connect the system to a Google Analytics account for further analysis. To provide an exceptionally smooth user experience on any device and any network, JVC VIDEOCLOUD runs on Akamai's CDN, which serves more than a third of the global video traffic.

With the launch of JVC VIDEOCLOUD, JVC now provides everything you need to manage your content, from acquisition through to transmission. JVC will be taking JVC VIDEOCLOUD out on its Go Live! tour over the next year across Europe, kindly supported by external companies, Tividoo and Sennheiser. Tividoo ( supplied the Dawson satellite and connectivity, while Sennheiser ( supported the tour with wireless microphones.

The JVC VIDEOCLOUD complements JVC's range of professional products, which includes professional cameras, camcorders, production monitoring and studio accessories. Key to JVC's range of camcorders is comprehensive IP support, which includes the ability to live stream, FTP file transfer, and remotely control camera setup. As such, the JVC VIDEOCLOUD perfectly complements JVC camera's IP functionality, providing a seamless, end to end production workflow from acquisition to delivery.
