JVC's ProHD Bridge – A Cost-Effective IP Transmission System

News Image
JVC has announced a partnership with Peplink, a leader in SD-WAN bonding solutions, to create the ProHD Bridge video-over-IP solution.

The ProHD Wireless Bridge is the ideal IP solution for covering news, sports and events – virtually any live broadcast where camera mobility and high reliability are paramount. Peplink combines multiple connections to create a stable backbone for the ProHD Wireless Bridge video-over-IP solution for multi-camera live broadcasts.

Peplink's SpeedFusion technology bonds multiple 3G/4G/LTE and network (Wi-Fi and wired) connections and is central to the ProHD Bridge, which becomes a remote broadcasting hub. The cellular uplink and SpeedFusion creates a secure virtual private network (VPN) and allows the ProHD Wireless Bridge to deliver live broadcasts of news, sports and other events. The result is an affordable, reliable and flexible mobile transmission system.

The ProHD Bridge can be used with the JVC Command Centre, a command and control workstation, which can access all the active "Bridge" cameras in an organization and superimpose their locations over a street map with live image previews. The workstation will also allow the operator to access each Bridge camera on the network, take control, or manage settings.

The ProHD Bridge is planned to be available in Europe by early 2018, and forms part of a complete end-to-end IP infrastructure from JVC. JVC's range of IP-connected ENG cameras have class-leading IP connectivity, including the ability to live stream, remotely control and FTP file transfer directly from the camera. JVC believes that remote broadcasting begins in the camera, with built-in encoders that feature the highly regarded Zixi error correction, automatic repeat request, and variable bit rate control. And with the encoder built-in, the camera operator gets viewfinder status indications of the remote connection and outgoing stream quality. Built-in two channel IFB communication is possible with some camera models.

Now, with the addition of the ProHD Bridge, small- to medium size live event can be streaming via a single robust, reliable cellular bonded system. When used with the Streamstar range of IP production switchers, then a total live production system over IP is possible. Also when combined with JVCVIDEOCLOUD, a complete end to end IP solution becomes possible. JVCVIDEOCLOUD allows the user to host, manage and distribute content on a single platform. JVC VIDEOCLOUD enables you to stream live from JVC's range of streaming camcorders, along with encoders from other manufacturers. So wherever your content originates from, it is possible to manage and deliver efficiently using the JVC VIDEOCLOUD platform.

Further information on JVC's full range of professional video solutions, is available at www.jvcpro.co.uk. Information on the JVCVIDEOCLOUD is available at www.jvcvideocloud.com.
