PTZ cameras offer graphic images

A new firmware upgrade for JVC’s KY-PZ100 PTZ camera now offers full screen graphics overlay to the camera. This means that information can be overlaid on recorded or streamed video, such as the programme name, reporter name, channel logo, time or live sports scores, all updated via smartphone or tablet. It’s also possible to include the watermark of the station and a ‘Live’ mark on the screen for live broadcasts.

The KY-PZ100 has a direct drive system that delivers 0.03º accuracy with silent movement. It has a 30x zoom lens, built-in SD card recording and offers good low light performance, said the company.

Besides 3G-SDI and HDMI outputs, the camera features JVC’s IP-based communications engine, providing FTP and streaming HD video at a variety of bit rates with minimal latency.

The camera can be controlled using the JVC full IP-based

RM-LP100 remote control panel, a web browser or other third-party remote controllers.
