JVCKENWOOD Assistant Vice President Marketing Communications Dave Walton noted that the alteration in the company name brought changes to email addresses and new business cards. However, “In many ways we are still the same old JVC you used to know, and that’s because we’re developing exciting new JVC-branded products that bring cutting-edge features and performance to our customers, while helping them maintain a profitable bottom line.”
One such product to which Walton pointed is the 4K GY-HM170 camcorder, with an MSRP of $2,195. This entry-level UltraHD-capable camera in the company’s 4KCAM line
has been joined by the GY-LS300 and GY-HM200, which include built-in HD streaming engines.
To combat the network congestion video journalists often encounter when streaming over regular cell phone networks, JVCKENWOOD has introduced the JVC Private MESH Video Network.
“This is the future of first-mile contribution for live multicamera coverage of remote events,” said Walton. “Broadcasters are going to love the reliability and simplicity of our private wireless network system because it resolves any issues of
access or bandwidth in the field. Sports producers have already expressed interest in this technology, and it has huge potential for government and security applications as well.”
