NAB Wrap Up By Jon Firestone

This NAB was a little surprising, Red didn’t have a booth again, and Freefly who makes the MōVI were also not at the show, and notably neither was GoPro who often have one of the most popular booths. But that doesn’t mean NAB wasn’t as big as ever! As far as gear goes, some of the more exciting announcements were Blackmagic’s new pocket cinema camera 4K. It’s a $1295 micro 4/3s 4K camera that can shoot 4K at 60 Frames per second and features raw recording, a five-inch touch screen and a full license of DaVinci resolve studio. I also did go to Red’s meeting room and got to do some low light tests with their incredible new Gemini 5K image sensor, and while it does not have as much resolution as their other sensors, the lowlight sensitivity is incredible and could open up a lot of options for cinematographers.

Jon Firestone is known for his work on Gathering of Heroes: Legend of the Seven Swords (2018), Legacy of the Tengu (2014) and The Black Hole (2016).

JVC Introduces BR-DE900 Portable ProHD Decoder at NAB 2018

By Posted by Jody Michelle Solis, Editor

JVC Professional Video, a division of JVCKENWOOD USA Corporation, introduces the BR-DE900 ProHD decoder, a portable appliance that supports H.265 and H.264 compression standards, at the 2018 NAB Show (Booth C4315) in Las Vegas, Nev. When paired with JVC’s IP-enabled cameras, the BR-DE900 provides a bandwidth efficient, error-free streaming solution over any network, including the internet.

Designed for field use, the BR-DE900 provides optimal quality of service with low latency and versatile audio/video connectivity for ENG field reports and other video-over-IP applications. It offers reliable decoding of HEVC or H.264 streams up to 10-bit 4:2:2 1080p/60, with bit rates up to 50 Mbps. Connectivity options include dual 3G-SDI, HDMI 2.0, and composite outputs, as well as multiple audio outputs.

When paired with the JVC BR-800 ProHD Broadcaster streaming server, the BR DE900’s efficient H.264 codec and integrated Zixi or SMPTE 2022 Pro-MPEG stream protection technologies provide broadcast-quality video anywhere in the world using public networks. Completely hardware-based decoding minimizes the decoding process cycle to minimize latency without compromising video quality. The BR-DE900 also includes integrated video scaling, frame sampling, and de-interlacing for any stream to any output resolution or frame rate, and its stream forwarding feature efficiently redistributes an incoming stream within a private LAN/WAN network.

Housed in an industrial-grade aluminum case, the BR-DE900 weighs less than three pounds and includes mounting holes for seamless installation in production flypacks or master control. Setup is streamlined using an intuitive web interface. The BR-DE900, which replaces the current BR-DE800 model, has an MSRP of $2,900 and will be available in May.

Headquartered in Wayne, New Jersey, JVC Professional Video is a division of JVCKENWOOD USA Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of JVCKENWOOD Corporation. The company is a leading manufacturer and distributor of broadcast and professional video equipment, as well as D-ILA front projection systems. → continue…

By Posted by Jody Michelle Solis, Editor

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, → continue…

NAB 2018: JVC Debuts 4K HDR, 4K-Compatible LCD Studio Monitors

By Posted by Jody Michelle Solis, Editor

JVC Professional Video, a division of JVCKENWOOD USA Corporation, today announced two new series of studio LCD monitors to support today’s growing 4K workflows. Available in two models, the DT‑U series provides native 4K resolution with 10-bit color depth and HDR compatibility. The four models in the more economical DT‑G series convert 4K and 2K sources to full HD. The new monitors will be demonstrated during the 2018 NAB Show (Booth C4315), which runs through April 12 in Las Vegas, Nev.

The 28-inch DT-U28U and 31.5-inch DT-U31U feature native 4K LCD panels with 3840×2160 resolution, LED backlight, wider color gamut, and HLG HDR and PQ HDR display for realistic imagery. Both monitors feature multiple 4K inputs, including 12G-SDI, 3G-SDI quad link, 4K/60p HDMI 2.0, and optional plug-in SFP adapter. Users can also display four independent SDI sources in quad view mode, and there are extensive connectivity options for legacy sources. The DT-U31E supports 100 percent DCI-P3 and 84 percent ITU-R BT.2020 color gamut, while the DT-U28E supports 100 percent Rec.709 and 80 percent DCI-P3 color gamut.

With sizes ranging from 17.3 to 27 inches, DT-G series monitors support 4K/60p HDMI and 2K-SDI signals. Each 8-bit panel has 10-bit signal processing and LED backlight, with the three largest models offering 1000:1 contrast ratio.

Designed for critical video applications, both the DT-G and DT-U series are equipped with a new zero latency image processing mode with only a few lines of delay, which is ideal for lip sync monitoring. Both series also feature 3D LUT 17x17x17 precise auto calibration, with built-in color generator and calibration software, and support user uploaded 3DLUT cube files, which are convenient for color creation in post. Plus, with several built-in De-log LUTs (including JVC J-log1), the monitors can convert directly to ITU-Rec.709.

All models feature a built-in auto → continue…
