There is a delay in the A/V stream making it somewhat useless when using the cam with other/different cams (hardware) when using Wirecast and Ustream Producer. The only way you could possibly use this with Wirecast and expect good A/V sync is when using only these cameras and running the audio into the cam via it's mic jack thus making the A/V sync stream run simultaneously. Don't get me wrong the camera is great! The P/T/Z is amazing and if you don't mind the delay, which JVC says is about 1-5 sec (3sec with direct for me) then it makes a perfect monitoring cam. Wish I could use it but for Wirecast and Ustream Producer there is no way! Retailers should be mentioning this in their specifications to avoid lots of returns. I was your Guinea Pig. Your welcome! ~J

I've had my difficulties with this camera, mainly because I use a Mac because I hate Windows. I thought JVC was Mac user friendly but not with this camera setup. I can access the camera with Safari but still can't manage files because I'm having trouble making an ethernet connection running Parallels. Maybe tomorrow after my Windows Guy appointment. The reason I bought this was not for streaming, it was the ability to control by wifi and record up to four cameras on SD cards from my ipad in 1920X1080p 30fps. Then, take that footage into Premiere Pro, sync the clips and edit using multicam. Four cameras, four tripods, a field recorder and an ipad and if I wanted a hand held unit, or additional static units, I could do that too and still put cymbals on my knees. Add up the cost to do that wired. Plus, the camera operator(s) is not part of the show, or the wedding or whatever. Also, take along a wireless router and a power source or sources and you can almost set up anywhere and be ready without the cumbersome reconnection process to join all cameras to a new network. This is a process for me, but I can see the light.

I’ve just finished installing one of these cameras in my church for archiving Sunday services to DVD and YouTube. I can affirm some of the criticisms in these reviews but overall I feel we got a great bargain for a sub-$1000 pan/tilt/zoom camera.

We record an hour-long service to the SD memory in the camera and then offload the video data file to a hard disk for encoding by Windows Movie Maker. Video quality is excellent. The pan/tilt/zoom feature is very fast and the autofocus does a great job of keeping up with scene changes.

I especially like the feature that allows you to store three PTZ “scenes” in camera memory and recall them with a click of a mouse.

The resolution of the stored videos is almost too great for cheap computing hardware to absorb and manipulate. In the highest resolution a 1 hour church service is roughly 12 gigabytes of data. It takes a pretty fast CPU in a personal computer to encode this much data. I had to downscale the video recording mode to a lesser “SD mode” to get the video file under 5 gigabytes. And even then, an hour is required to download the data from the camera via the 802.11 wireless wireless port. (In fairness to JVC, my computer might be only 802.11b and the speed limitation here might not be the camera’s fault.)

As other reviewers have pointed out, there are significant limitations of the camera that JVC could address with engineering tweaks. That JVC has not yet corrected these flaws probably results from low sales of the camera. These are the most significant flaws I noticed:

The user’s manual that ships with the camera is the original “get it into production” document. It’s worthless. There is a newer, more detailed manual on JVC’s website and floating around on the internet.

Picked up one of these for B-cam live concert recording use and it looks pretty promising. Not as ruggedly built as I'd like and not exactly plug and play but its the only game in town for a wireless 4-camera video controller. If live use goes smoothly, I'll probably get a 2nd one. It doesn't come with a battery, btw, and I'm not sure the optional one they specify for it would be of much use. I'd want it to go for the 5+ hours I get from Sandisk Extreme Plus 64gig SDXC UHS-I recording media I'm using it with for truly wireless operation. I'm thinking one of those XTPower battery packs which seems to have the right voltage and a ton of adapters might do the trick. I'll be using a power cord for now. There's an update to the JVC camera driver software, btw, which was detected as soon as I installed from the supplied CD. Not sure what functionality it adds. Now seems to work fine with both IE and FireFox. Also tested the Windows and Android apps. No issues. Wonder if it now allows putting 1 camera in direct mode and setting another to WAN to dispense with adding a separate hot spot? That would be nice otherwise I'd have to set up power for my smart phone too if I need to activate its own hot spot feature to control multiple cameras.
