 Video, a division of JVCKENWOOD USA Corporation, today announced it is upgrading most of its video production camera models to provide workflow improvements for 

sports production

 and 

video coaching

 applications. The new upgrades are built around an interoperability standard developed by the Sports Video Interoperability Group, which JVC recently joined.

The membership is part of JVC’s growing commitment to the sports marketplace, which also includes exhibiting at the annual College Sports Video Association (CSVA) conference this week and the SVG College Sports Summit later this month in Atlanta. JVC recently established its Sports Video Division, led by Joe D’Amico, vice president of broadcast sales for JVCKENWOOD USA.

“Sports production continues to be a dominating part of today’s video production landscape at every level, from local leagues to international events,” said D’Amico. “At JVC, our commitment to the sports vertical market includes innovative cameras developed specifically to address the workflow needs of sports production and sports coaching, as well as dedicated resources to help our customers produce outstanding sports coverage.”

Over the next six months, JVC will upgrade its recently introduced GY-HM660SC ProHD sports coaching camera, which seamlessly interfaces with the XOS Thunder HD video editing platform, as well as the GY-HM200SP sports production camera with embedded score panel graphics, to conform to the group’s Sports Exchange Standard. Other cameras to be upgraded include the 4KCAM GY-HM170 and GY-HM200, plus the KY-PZ100 PTZ production camera and ProHD 600 and 800 Series models. The upgrade will give all models seamless compatibility with applications from DVSport as well as XOS Digital, which are compliant with the Sports Exchange Standard.  

“We are proud to welcome JVC as our newest member,” said Jim McKain, president of the Sports Video Interoperability Group. “By adopting our Sports Exchange Standard, JVC’s cameras now create compatible HD video with rich metadata that is immediately compliant with other certified applications. This allows sports organizations to use JVC’s products in their existing workflows, knowing the content produced is fully compliant with the Exchange Standard. We look forward to JVC’s expertise as we enhance our standards that allow video and metadata to be shared seamlessly between multiple vendors’ equipment and software solutions.” 

Established in 2007, the Sports Video Interoperability Group is a collaborative group that builds and licenses technology standards to enable data exchange between sports video products. It includes more than a dozen major organizations, and has metadata technology registered through SMPTE that is available for license. Find additional information at www.sportsinterop.org/Members.
