The New VN-C625U is a Full-Function Camera for 24/7 Network-based Surveillance

ORLANDO, FL (September 12, 2005) – JVC PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTS COMPANY adds its new compact, 360-degree continuous rotation IP dome network camera, the VN-C625U to its growing line of security cameras and solutions. Created for education, government and retail facilities, this slim day/night camera has Compact Flash memory recording capability and is an ideal companion to JVC’s VR-N100U Network Video Recorder.

The VN-C625U is a high-resolution camera that features a ¼-inch interline transfer CCD with 380,000 pixels and a removable IR cut filter that captures nighttime images in realistic color. A high quality 12x optical zoom lens provides clear details and is controlled remotely via a network interface. With its highly sophisticated camera control features such as Auto Flip, Auto Pan, and Auto Patrol, the VN-C625U virtually eliminates blind spots.

The camera also includes a Compact Flash card slot that works in conjunction with the alarm function to allow automatic recording onto a CF card when an alarm triggers. In addition, its 360-degree pan, tilt and zoom functions have 100 programmable preset positions and variable movement speed for quick image capture in any direction. The camera has built-in motion detection and pre and post alarm recording capability, and can even send an e-mail when an alarm triggers.

“In this rapidly expanding IP security market, there is a need for more powerful and multi-functional security cameras in a variety of installations,” said Steve Martin, Assistant Vice President, Digital Systems Division of JVC PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTS. “As one of the first manufacturers with IP based security cameras, we have extensive experience with real-life installations, and continue to offer products matched to the needs of our customers.”

For dark indoor environments and nighttime surveillance, Super LoLux™ technology allows the VN-C625U to capture high-quality images in extreme low light situations. In addition, the mechanical IR cut filter has a night function that allows the filter to be automatically retracted for infrared imaging (monochrome), making the camera sensitive enough to shoot in just 0.15 lux of ambient light.

The VN-C625U includes a privacy mask that shields selected areas from intrusive monitoring. Its motion-JPEG image output provides resolutions of up to 640 x 480 pixels with a maximum frame rate of 30fps.

The VN-C625U provides a standard 10/100BaseT interface for connection to a LAN, WAN or to the Internet. The camera features built-in Web and FTP servers and can operate in a DHCP environment. When used with JVC's VR-N100U Network Video Recorder, the VN-C625U IP dome camera can provide an all-digital IP security solution for small to large-scale security systems.
