Live Streaming up to 12Mbps of High Bit Rate Streaming
If your task involves mission-critical ENG applications, turn to the GY-HM660 as it is capable of streaming LIVE HD/SD and proxy video/ audio files via network up to 12Mbps. Coupled with the superior mobility of the camera, this wireless capability allows you to stream backhaul live to the newsroom or to a reliable cloud service such as Zixi, as well as content delivery networks such as USTREAM and YouTube using Wi-Fi or 4G-LTE network. All you need to do is press a button and you’re
streaming HD to the world.
IP Connection Realized with a Variety of USB Host Adapters
Full HD video footage recorded on the GY-HM660 can stream backhaul live to the target location using an adapter such as 4G LTE/3G modem, Wi-Fi LAN, or Ethernet, whichever is more stable and cost-effective. Such use of an adapter enables uploading video clips to and receiving
Advanced IP Functions for FTP Uploading
Video clips recorded on an SDHC/SDXC card can be transferred from the GY-HM660 via FTP server. Clips can be trimmed right on the camera, which is useful for selecting only vital scenes before uploading to an FTP server. What’s more, if an upload is interrupted by a weak connection, the FTP Resume function is smart enough to restart from where it left off. This will help to save time for uploading.
Supports SMPTE 2022-1 Protocol for HQ Streaming
Stable, high-quality live streaming over IP is made possible thanks to support for the new SMPTE 2022 protocol. Since its introduction in 2007, the SMPTE 2022 standard has added sections to cover more types of IP video transport. Of the standard, the GY-HM660 supports the first protocol, which is forward error correction (FEC) for real-time video/audio transport over IP networks.
Advanced Live Streaming with Built-in Zixi Engine
For advanced live streaming solutions, JVC has tagged with Zixi. The GY-HM660 features the Zixi engine, installed directly into the camera to provide high-quality delivery over 4G LTE or standard Internet connection. The powerful Zixi engine applies forward error correction (FEC) and adaptive bit rate control with the new “high reliable mode” to correct packet loss by over 40%*, delivering a robust, reliable HD stream. In the camera’s FTP setting, the new Zixi protocol has been added for
transferring clips while recording from the camera via Zixi server.
*Quality of Live streaming depends on network conditions including packet loss.
IP Remote Control with Viewing
When the camera is IP connected to a server console, vital camera operations can be remotely controlled via wireless or wired LAN from smart devices and computers. Remote control functions include lens and camera settings as well as registering zoom presets. Best of all, recording and live streaming may also be triggered remotely—invaluable for minor adjustments when a single reporter is operating the camera or shooting with a 2-camera setup.
The camera on the stage can be remote controlled from a smart device. Controls include REC/STOP, Zoom, Focus, Iris and more detailed settings while viewing live images from the smart device screen.
IFB Return Audio via IP*
With Interruptible FeedBack (IFB) return audio function**, the camera crew can listen to audio from remote locations via IP even while live streaming. The same audio can be heard from multiple GY-HM660 cameras simultaneously.
*Future update **Requires other devices
