Zixi Partners With JVC to Revolutionize ENG Camera Capabilities 
JVC GY-HM650 ProHD News Camera Now Includes Integrated Zixi Video
Delivery Capabilities 
AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS -- (Marketwired) -- 09/12/13 --  At the
IBC 2013 trade show, Zixi(TM) LLC (www.zixi.com) today announced a
new partnership with JVC Americas Corp. that lights the way to a new,
mobile, highly-integrated, IP-network based future for professional
video cameras. The partnership will focus on rapidly integrating
cloud-based networking features into JVC ProHD cameras. Zixi and JVC
believe it is inevitable that functionality that has until now
required separate devices will be integrated into a new generation of
mobile professional cameras. The first results of the new partnership
can be seen in JVC's wireless-ready GY-HM650 ProHD mobile news
camera. 
Previously, ENG crews and professional videographers had to integrate
various devices like encoders, wireless setups and video transport
devices at the shoot in the field. Now that Zixi and JVC have tightly
integrated Zixi into the GY-HM650, videographers may simply connect
the camera to the Internet at the location and transport high-quality
video to its destination using Zixi's video transport system. Zixi
makes it possible to deliver pristine video over the public Internet
or private IP networks without worrying about distance, packet loss
or quality problems. 
"With Zixi built into JVC's flagship GY-HM650 ENG camcorder, we offer
robust video transport solutions, including video switching and
transcoding in the cloud, adaptive bit rates and advanced error
correction," said Edgar Shane, general manager, engineering, JVC
Professional Products, a division of JVC Americas Corp. "Zixi's
delivery engine dramatically improves quality of HD video streams
under difficult network conditions and provides reliable delivery via
a single 4G LTE modem connected to the camera without requiring any
additional equipment." 
The GY-HM650 can also be used with Zixi's newly announced cloud
delivery service, Zixi Ramp (see "Zixi LLC Announces Zixi Ramp at IBC
2013"). When using Zixi Ramp in the cloud, configuration of the
GY-HM650 to deliver flawless video over the Internet is as simple as
entering a single IP address. Zixi Ramp permits the GY-HM650 to be
used in many additional applications, including live,
direct-to-website broadcasts. 
"We welcome JVC, a world leader in the professional camera market, as
a partner," said Israel Drori, president and co-founder, Zixi LLC.
"This partnership will revolutionize and re-define the term 'live
camera.' By eliminating the need for additional special equipment and
networks, the Zixi-enabled GY-HM650 opens up new market opportunities
never before possible." 
Availability
 Live demonstrations of the
GY-HM650 with Zixi are being given at IBC 2013 in Amsterdam, NL from
September 13 through September 17, 2013 in JVC's booth (hall 10,
booth D45) and in Zixi's booth (Connected World, hall 14, booth 342).
Zixi will be available in the GY-HM650 Fall 2013 firmware release.
