1/2.3” CMOS Sensor with 4K 50/60p output

BC-15 series is one of the best cameras for capturing eSport applications with the wide angle lens. While changing back to the standard lens, it will fulfill the other wide range applications.

Support SRT streaming protocol, no need to worry about unreliable network environment

Many broadcasters have experienced pixelated video during live streaming, often due to unstable network environments caused by bandwidth volatility.

Streaming RTMP over unreliable, low-bandwidth networks can cause issues. With dvCloud, you can now replace the RTMP protocol with SRT, which will fix most streaming issues you may have. SRT is better than RTMP because it handles problematic networks more efficiently.

It requires less bandwidth, and it solves data errors faster. As a result, your viewers will experience a better stream, with less buffering and pixelization.

H.264/H.265 video compression for dual streaming

During video production, you can stream simultaneously to two live streaming platforms such as Facebook, Youtube and Twitch. With Datavideo dvCloud, you can stream to 25 live streaming platforms at the same time and automatically back up your video files on the cloud server.

Built-in Tally Light

Built-in tally lights make it easier for the talent to know which camera is live during a multi-camera live production.

Power over Ethernet

The BC-15C supports PoE for easy installation. No need to find local power outlets or hire an electrician to install outlets wherever you want to mount your camera. Simply run a single CAT 6 cable to power your BC-15C.

Physical Buttons Make Camera Setup Very Easy

When the camera is set up, there is no need to use an additional remote controller. The physical buttons on the rear panel of the BC-15C make it very easy to adjust settings.

1/4” Screw Hole for Mounting

Changing the camera angle is easy with the three 1/4” screw holes on the BC-15C. It gives you the flexibility of mounting it anywhere.

Professional APP

Camera – The APP will automatically scan the network for connected DVIP devices. All detected BC- 15P devices will be listed for selection.

Encoder – Provides H.265/264 video coding standard or high efficiency video coding for various major streaming platforms.

Streaming – The main encoder uses the latest SRT protocol as well as the standard RTMP/RTMPS protocols. The multiview screen is streamed to the APP using the sub encoder.

Audio – Professional audio settings allow you to physically configure the audio input. You can make selection of the audio input type (Line/ MIC), audio type (mono/stereo) and audio standard (SMPTE/EBU).

Configuring Live Video on the Mobile Phone

You can adjust the video settings on the mobile phone and use the sub encoder to preview the video as you make changes to the settings. You can also monitor critical camera settings such as HDMI output resolution,camera name, and stream status.
