JVC Professional Video recently released firmware upgrades for its renowned GY-HC900 and GY-HC500 CONNECTED CAM camcorders. With the latest upgrades, customers are afforded a wide array of SRT functions to enhance their workflows and video-over IP functionality for REMI applications. This includes Network Adaptive Encoding/Adaptive Bitrate (ABR) Streaming, which monitors network conditions and reduces bitrate in case of congestion or high packet loss.
The newly added PCR Fast Mode delivers sub-one-second, glass-to-glass latency when streaming to the JVC decoder and SRT-capable switchers. The update also enables decoding of SRT return video over the internet for teleprompting or bidirectional remote guest communication via the LCD/EVF. The firmware also features a Social Networking Service (SNS) vertical/square position image cropping function for the GY-HC500 Series, which is ideal for social media streaming platforms like TikTok and Instagram Stories. The new firmware is available as a free download from the JVC Professional Video website.
