JVC Professional Video has been selected by Televisa to provide video-over-IP infrastructure to its live electronic news gathering (ENG) units.

televisa prohd 05 apr 2018The Mexican media giant has purchased 25 JVC ProHD Wireless Bridge bonded units to transmit live field reports from 21 different markets throughout Mexico. The first unit was tested last year in Monterrey, while three more will be placed in Guadalajara, and the rest assigned to 19 other regional stations.

Compatible with JVC’s ProHD and 4KCAM streaming camera models, the wireless bridge is said to be ideal for broadcasts that require high reliability and camera mobility. Each camera in the system is equipped with a transceiver module, which operates up to 600 meters from the vehicle-mounted base station.

“Before this, it was very complicated to produce a live report because we needed a microwave truck – and it cost a lot of money and required a lot of resources,” explained Gabriel Herran Galaviz, Televisa technical director of regional stations. “Now they can report from anywhere using one of our fleet vehicles.”

While the stations in Guadalajara, Monterrey, and Tijuana have their own IP routers, the other 18 stations use a cloud-based Peplink FusionHub virtual appliance to connect their cameras to a cloud-based server.
