Equipped with four JVC KY-PZ100 PTZ network video production cameras and two JVC RM-LP100 remote camera controllers, the video system in the Dallas Mavericks practice facility is used to monitor practice and workout activities. Each court has one camera positioned at a baseline corner and a second at half court. The corner camera can provide coverage of the entire court, but a camera operator usually follows the action more closely, using an RM-LP100 to adjust the camera’s 30x optical zoom lens. Each camera is connected via fiber to a Blackmagic Design Smart Videohub router, which allows any camera to be adjusted with either controller.
All practices, even unofficial player workouts, are required to be recorded. With JVC’s built-in IP capabilities, a video team member can access the system’s web-based interface to turn on the cameras and record the session. Administrators can also watch practices at any time using a secure web connection.
