Live multi-camera remote production will take a big step forward next week at NAB Show New York when JVC introduces a wireless bridge that extends the performance of video-over-IP contribution by offering a system that the company says “exceeds the performance of typical bonded solutions.”
The ProHD Wireless Bridge, which is compatible with the company’s ProHD and 4KCAM streaming camera models, works with the WB-MCA100 camera transceiver that plugs into the USB connector on each camera. Cameras can operate up to 2,000 feet from a base station that can be mounted on a remote vehicle.
Handheld JVC streaming cameras can also be used up to 400 feet from the base station when equipped with a smaller radio module, the company said.
The JVC WB-CELL200 cellular uplink uses a high-gain antenna array to aggregate signals from two mobile carriers. This approach enables broadcasters to create a virtual private network for secure remote camera transmission via a high-speed mobile hotspot, JVC said.
At the broadcast facility, the JVC BPL-380 router can aggregate up to 20 cellular uplinks to support contribution from multiple vehicles in the field, it said.
