Robotic PTZ IP production camera (white)


The KY-PZ100 is a robotic pan, tilt and zoom video production camera. It's the first PTZ camera that features JVC's unique IP communications engine providing network connection via WiFi*, 4G-LTE*, or cabled LAN. It's designed to be used as a stand alone remote camera or as part of a multi-camera system in both studio and field environments. In addition to its 3G-SDI and HDMI outputs, it is also capable of reliably streaming 1080i/60, 1080p, 720p, and 360p video with 2-channel audio--all with minimal latency and forward error correction.

Versatile IP Connectivity including Wi-Fi* and 4G/LTE*

The KY-PZ100 is the PTZ camera that features JVC’s unique IP communications engine providing network connection via Wi-Fi*, 4G/LTE*, or wired LAN.
*Wi-Fi and 4G/LTE require optional network adapter.

Control from Remote Location with PC

Using a browser, video monitoring and remote camera control can be performed with a PC from all over the world.

RTMP for Direct Streaming to Content Delivery Network

RTMP protocol support enables direct streaming to JVC VIDEOCLOUD, Ustream, YouTube, Facebook, etc. Other various protocols and bitrates are supported for a variety of usages.

0.02 lx of Minimum Illumination for Precise Color Reproduction

In High-Sensitivity mode, minimum illumination is 0.02 lx. Superior color reproduction is ensured even at low light. The Night Mode is also available for even darker environments (0.003 lx of minimum illumination).

Powerful 30x Optical Zoom

Equipped with 30x optical zoom, the KY-PZ100 is capable of capturing distant subjects. Even in a grand hall or auditorium, the speaker’s expressions and handwriting on a board will be clearly captured. 12x digital zoom is also available.

Direct Drive Mechanism for Accurate and Quiet Pan/Tilt

The KY-PZ100 incorporates JVC’s Direct Drive Motor that offers precise, highly responsive pan/tilt and silent movement compare to the normal stepping motor mechanism.

Super Fast Pan/Tilt of max. 480°/sec*.

With maximum 480°/sec*. movement offers the scene transition sharply.
*In case with AC adapter. 400°/sec. with PoE+.

Super Slow Pan/Tilt of min. 0.1°/sec.

Extremely slow movement of 0.1°/sec. offers a good look at the scene even at high zoom rates.

Extremely Silent Operation

Operating noise of Direct Drive is approx. 20% lower than normal stepping motor system, which is especially suitable for the usage of classic concert, church and so on.

High Accuracy of +/-0.03° for Preset Positions

Adjusts to preset positions with high accuracy, offset less than 0.03°. Maintains precise shooting positions even at high magnification with virtually no deviation.

Simultaneous Output of 3G-SDI and HDMI in addition to IP

Simultaneous digital output capability, with up to1920x1080/60p video through 3G-SDI/HDMI/IP, makes the KY-PZ100 ideal for webcasting as well as viewing and recording of conferences, lectures, and other live events.

PoE+ for Simple and Flexible Installation

You can reduce installation cost with the KY-PZ100 that supports PoE+ (Power-over-Ethernet), which is capable of carrying IP video, audio control and power over a single connection cable.

Wide Dynamic Range Mode

The Wide Dynamic Range mode provides clear natural foreground images even under challenging highlight conditions.

Full HD 1080/50p, 60p High Quality Video

The KY-PZ100 offers progressive video recording of 1920x1080/50p, 60p at 50Mbps and streaming of 1920x1080/50p, 60p at 20Mbps.

Audio Input Function

Input audio through a microphone or a mixer can be IP output and embedded on SDI or HDMI output.

microSDHC/microSDXC Card Recording and File Upload Capability

The KY-PZ100 features a built-in digital recorder that records HD from 5Mbps to 50Mbps directly to microSDHC/microSDXC card. Recordings can be uploaded from the camera to an external server.

100 Preset Positions and Settings

Up to 100 points of PTZ positons and other settings such as focus and white balance can be memorized on the camera.

Reliable and Stable Streaming with Zixi* and SMPTE 2022-1

Thanks to SMPTE 2022-1 and Zixi* support, reliable and stable streaming is assured with forward error correction. Especially with Zixi protocol, even more reliable streaming is ensured with adaptive bit rate and automatic repeat request.
*Requires optional Zixi licensed decoder or server.

Note for all kind of USB Adapters
The connection to a network will be made by the USB Host Port of the camcorder (on the right back end side of the camcorder). Please select the device which you are going to use: WIFI dongle / 3G/4G dongle or a CAT Network adapter.The Adapter you going to be use must be a registered Adapter (see attached compatible list), cause all of these Adapter needs dedicate drivers, which to be implemented into the camcorder.In the case for LTE adapters, there must be done a pre-set of these dongles in your local PC first!
