LiveU Solo is the more affordable bonded live video broadcasting solution from LiveU, to stream from anywhere to Wowza Media Systems, as well as other popular CDNs, OVPs and YouTube Live. LiveU makes devices specifically meant for broadcasting live using bonding technology directly through the Internet: with multiple connectivity options such as 3G, 4G/LTE, WiFi and Ethernet LAN, streaming from the camera using LRT (LiveU Reliable Transport) protocol optimized for video performance using adaptive bit rate and forward error correction technology. LiveU Central is their own server system that can handle multiple video streams to form a control room of sorts where a live producing users can switch and choose between several video feeds feeding into the channel such as YouTube Live.

Ready Rig GS is a professional body mounted camera gimbal stabiliser that provides maximum stability and comfort for use with the DJI Ronin-M 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer. Ready Rig GS with DJI Ronin is a camera stabilization system that is meant to take the camera weight off the shoulders of the user while allowing for stable adjustment in several degrees of freedom. The setup uses mostly aluminium for the construction with the inclusion of exotic carbon fiber for the connecting rod for low weight and high strength. It costs US$2000 and comes preloaded with a gyroscope for movement compensation.
Panasonic finally has released the DVX200 ($4200 on Amazon) which records "real 4K" 4:2:0 8bit 60fps, it can record 4:2:2 10bit with an Atomos external recorder. Built-in 13x zoom lens with wide-angle 28mm, it can record 4K 4096x2160 at 24p, UHD 4K 3840x2160 (60p/30p/24p) and 1080p at (120fps and 24p). The 4K UHD 60p/50p recording is at 150mbit/s and 30p/25p/24p is at 100mbit/s, it can record both UHD 30p and FHD onto two separate SD cards, approximately 160 minutes of 4K/24p or UHD/25p/30p data can be recorded onto a 128GB SD card, or about 110 minutes of UHD/60p data.
JVC GY-LS300 ($3500 at Amazon without the lens) features a JVCKENWOOD AltaSens 4K CMOS Super 35 high sensitivity image sensor combined with an industry standard Micro Four Thirds (MFT) lens mount. The single chip CMOS sensor has approximately 13.5 megapixels and achieves a standard sensitivity of ISO 400 with a total of 12 stops of exposure latitude. Super 35 Cinema lenses may be used and will retain their native angle of view. When the camera is used with MFT, Super 16 and other size lenses, JVC's proprietary Variable Scan Mapping feature will maintain the lens's native angle of view. This gives filmmakers the flexibility of using widely available MFT lenses as well as high end cinema lenses. It is also possible to attach the camera to microscopes and other devices using a MFT/C-mount adaptor. The unique combination of the MFT mount, the larger S35 image sensor and Variable Scan Mapping give the camera nearly limitless lens options.
Ikegami shows what they say is the World's First Hand-Held 8K TV Camera System, with a Single 33megapixel Super 35 CMOS sensor, 4000 horizontal TV lines, Dual-green SHV Color arrangement, 8K Focus assist, for now to be used by Japanese TV stations, possibly expanding to the whole world, to whomever wants to upgrade to 8K.
NHK skips 4K and brings Japan directly to 8K with HDR, requiring extra bandwidth for HDR but it's not double, it's effective enough to fit the HDR information within the 100mbit/s 8K transmittion bandwidth. See my previous NHK 8K interview
EKT launches their EKT Plug Set-top-box, running on the ALi M3733 Dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 with Mali-400MP2 GPU with a performance of 5000DMIPS, video transcoding, playback, running EKT's special software.
4K recording of 360 video is very important for the recording of 360 video content for the VR video industry, as lower resolution 360 video content doesn't look very good. Sphericam is the first fully spherical, 360º video camera that records 4K at 60fps that I have seen yet. It can film everything around with 6 image sensors, 6 lenses, 4 Microphones, 6 Micro SD Card Slots. It can do realtime stitching to internal memory at 30FPS in 4K, in 10 bit color, at 600 megabits per second. If you record to the 6 MicroSD cards it can record 60FPS 4K at up to 2.4gigabits per second. It can also live-stream the real-time stiched 360 degree 4K video or 6 unstiched videos at a bitrate of up to 100Mbit per second. All this sounds awesome, but the price is above $2000.

Smart transmitting of 3D audio up to unrestricted NHK 22.2 sound, a problem Swissaudec solved with ECMA-407: NHK 22.2 sound is built with 24 channels, 22 speaker channels and 2 subwoofer channels, consuming 28'800kb/s bandwidth in PCM. With ECMA-407 Swissaudec provides the solution to compress this amout of data up to 600 times - holding the world record in audio compression! By internally multiplexing additional 2kb/s, they extend any HD 5.1 or 7.1 carrier to transmit UHD audio up to NHK 22.2. Swissaudec showcases NHK 22.2 satellite transmission over an MPEG-4 7.1 network at 256kb/s together with SES and France Télévision. Contrarily to non-backwards-compatible standalone standards like MPEG-H or ATSC, Swissaudec invisibly extends existing 2D structure by ECMA-407 to work seamlessly with any existing audio codec. This is also the reason why streaming NHK 22.2 audio with ECMA-407 requires no network changes, as a most efficient, smart and easy UHD audio solution, broadcasters can consider this upgrade for their sound.
