JVC and Silvus

Providing a private IP wireless infrastructure from the camera to the studio

JVC Professional Video, a division of JVCKENWOOD USA Corporation, and Silvus Technologies have combined their best-in-class ProHD and MN-MIMO technologies to produce a next generation wireless camera solution that offers the user benefits far beyond other systems available in the marketplace. 
JVC’s ProHD and 4KCAM streaming camcorders (including model #’s GY-HM650, GY-HM-850, GY-HM890, GY-LS300CHU and GY-HM200U) connect directly via USB to a camera mounted SC3822 MN-MIMO radio, to support professional quality video transmission at up to 12MBps, as well as remote camera control.  The wideband bi-directional capability of the MN-MIMO mesh also enables optional features such as return video and IFB / Intercom. 
The “private mesh video network” can operate in both unlicensed frequency bands and a broadcaster’s own licensed channel frequencies.
