JVCKENWOOD will exhibit the ProHD Bridge series of IP transmission system for covering news and live events, which was brought to the market in collaboration with Hong Kong-based Peplink, to present broadcast solutions that enable live video transmission anywhere over public circuits. ProHD Bridge is a live IP transmission system with increased reliability and data transmission rate, which is enabled with bonding technology for transmitting IP over bonded multiple public circuits. We will showcase ProHD Portable Bridge, a portable model compatible with multi-camera live streaming, and a camera attached-type model, which delivers excellent mobility when attached to our GY-HM850/HM890 camera recorders.

JVCKENWOOD will deliver a video recording solution comprising our GY-LS300CHE 4K memory card camera recorder featuring the Super35mm image sensor and SHOGUN INFERNO and NINJA INFERNO recorders with a built-in monitor from ATOMOS Co., Ltd. We will highlight two solutions for high-definition and high image quality 4K/60p recording and HDR recording using the JVC Log with enhanced color grading.
5. 360-degree video recording solution for VR video creation and live streaming developed in collaboration with US-based RTI
JVCKENWOOD will offer a reference exhibit, in collaboration with Realtime Immersion Inc. (RTI) in the U.S., of a prototype system enabling 360-degree VR video recording, using a 360-degree shooting camera system featuring the Super35mm image sensor, VR head-mounted display, and dedicated VR apps. We will deliver 360-degree video shooting and live video streaming solutions for professional broadcast users.
The 360-degree camera system supports 3Kx3K square resolution, which is optimal for shooting 360-degree VR live streaming videos of sports, entertainment, and news events. By combining an optical system in the single-camera framework developed exclusively by RTI, the camera system can deliver high image quality and seamless videos. In addition, using a compound eye camera eliminates the need for video-stitching software, enabling the lowest latency on video streaming. Our exhibits will also include apps that enable 360-degree live video streaming for mobile devices and a VR head-mounted display that is compatible with 360-degree video content.
