Unique IP/Analog Network Video Recorder Serves as
Hub for Complete Video Surveillance System

LONG BEACH, CA (November 7, 2007) – JVC Professional Products Company introduces its V.Networks lineup of surveillance cameras and recorders to the residential custom installation market. The centerpiece of the advanced Internet protocol (IP) based video system is the new VR-N900U, standalone network video recorder (NVR). Supporting the system, JVC offers a significant product lineup of more than 20 analog and IP based cameras and high quality displays.

The VR-N900U is a standalone network server and recorder ideally suited for advanced residential security systems. It allows recording, monitoring and control of IP network cameras as well as conventional analog (coaxial) cameras. Homeowners can view and control the system from anywhere in the world using a standard PC browser connected to the Internet. Optional software even allows viewing and control of selected cameras using a PDA device.

In addition to providing secure and robust video monitoring capability, the JVC system can be connected to motion, fire, smoke and moisture sensors, and instantly send an e-mail notification when a trouble is detected.

"With the increases in network speed of cable and fiber systems, residential users can now take advantage of JVC's world class IP surveillance system to protect their property," said Steve Martin, video security division manager, assistant vice president, JVC Professional Products Company. "We've come along way since the days of simple alarm systems. Homeowners can now keep an eye on their property from anywhere in the world."

Traditionally, users of video surveillance systems had to choose between standalone analog video recorders connected with coaxial cables, or computer-based network recorders that required installation, configuration and licensing of external software packages. The VR-N900U ships with pre-installed, fully licensed software and is configured to accept both analog and IP camera inputs. Its single box design provides simple configuration and management of all sized surveillance systems using conventional front panel controls, or with an optional keypad and mouse.

Additionally, the enterprise class Remote Client feature provides access for up to 10 users to view the images from the VR-N900U and the triplex feature enables users to view, record and playback images in real-time. The recorder's VCR/DVR-like design provides familiar front panel controls including jog/shuttle and RGB monitor output.

The VR-N900U records high quality motion JPEG or MPEG-4 images up to 120 fps at VGA 640 x 840 resolution. Images are stored on the built-in 250GB hard disk drive. Users also have the ability to install an additional internal 250GB HDD.

The suggested list price for the VR-N900U is $5,550.00.  High-resolution photos and color brochures are available on the JVC Web site at
