JVC's SFE-CAM - A Dockable Bonded LTE On-Camera Solution

News Image
JVC has recently introduced the SFE-CAM Dockable Bridge, a Dual Link bonded LTE uplink that connects directly to the GY-HM800 series and GY-HC900 CONNECTEDCAM series cameras.

It supports live HD streaming from multiple JVC cameras to HD-SDI decoders or IP video server at the station, as well as Facebook Live or other CDNs. The SFE-CAM Dockable Bridge is part of a connected workflow that will be demonstrated at Broadcast Video Expo in London, which runs from 26 -28 February 2019.

Featuring Peplink's patented SpeedFusion VPN Bonding technology, the SFE-CAM Dockable Bridge combines multiple cellular, wired, and Wi-Fi connections to create a robust and secure VPN connection. The SFE-CAM system is ideal for live ENG reports, webcasts and live event production.

The self-contained SFE-CAM Dockable Bridge, positioned between the battery and ProHD GY‑ HM850/890 or CONNECTED CAM GY-HC900 camera body, plugs into the camera's USB or LAN port for a robust, integrated solution. It can also be detached and used with other IP-enabled CONNECTED CAM, 4KCAM, ProHD, and JVC PTZ camera models. Plus, the SFE-CAM Dockable Bridge functions as a secure, battery-powered hotspot in the field, and its Wi‑ Fi‑ First feature bonds to local or public hotspots when available to reduce cellular data costs.

Equipped with dual cellular modems with redundant SIM slots, the SFE-CAM Dockable Bridge accepts SIMs from multiple proviers and aggregates up to four different network links (LTE x 2, plus Wi-Fi or Ethernet), and supports global LTE coverage for worldwide operation. Other features include internal MIMO high efficiency antennas, two RJ-45 connectors for wired LAN/WAN connections, and a built-in GPS receiver.

"The SFE-CAM Dockable Bridge Bridge is an ideal choice for broadcasters that rely on cost-effective, IP field coverage," said John Kelly, General Manager JVCKENWOOD UK. "It connects directly to our GY-HM800 and GY-HC900 Series cameras, so you don’t need to carry additional equipment. You get a reliable, convenient, and affordable live broadcast alternative to microwave and satellite."
