JVC INTRODUCES WORLD’S
FIRST PoE IP-NETWORK PTZ CAMERA WITH 360 DEGREE
(October 27, 2008) –
JVC, an industry pioneer in IP camera technology, expands its
V.Networks line-up with the introduction of the VN-V685U, the
world's first Power over Ethernet (PoE) IP camera with Pan/Tilt/Zoom
(PTZ) and 360 degree continuous rotation.
PoE technology speeds installation and is the
preferred method of powering IP network cameras. JVC is the first
manufacturer to develop a PTZ PoE network camera that has 27x
optical zoom and endless 360°
rotation with its smooth direct drive motor. The VN-V685U complies
with the IEEE 3af industry standard of Power over Ethernet for
reliable connection to IEEE 3af standard power sources.
The VN-V685U PTZ camera is part of JVC’s
well established V.Networks
line-up of advanced IP-based video security products, which provides
the most reliable, proven and secure surveillance solutions
available. V.Networks products embody three core technologies:
imaging, networking and mechanism design to deliver the world’s
most advanced IP surveillance system.
“The VN-V685U is the first of its kind in
Pan Tilt Zoom Power over Ethernet cameras, demonstrating JVC’s
continued leadership in IP video surveillance. JVC’s V.Networks
strategy is to be the first to market with the right products to
meet customer demands,” said Geoff Anderson, national marketing
manager for Security Products, JVC Professional Products Company.
“The VN-V685U is designed and manufactured by JVC’s world class
team and was built on the well established technology found in all
JVC security products. The market has been demanding that every IP
camera have flexible and easy to install features such as IEEE 3af
standard PoE. JVC is the first to deliver the capability in a
commercial grade PTZ platform.”
The VN-V685U PTZ camera can be powered
through its Ethernet connection and enables continuous 360-degree
rotation delivering fast and precise operation with a speed range of
0.04 to 400 degrees per second and accuracy within 0.03 degrees.
100 preset positions are available. Additionally, its silent
direct drive motor provides quiet operation so that the camera is
The VN-V685U has a powerful 27x optical zoom
(32x digital zoom) capability and intelligent
auto-tracking function to detect and track a moving object instantly
and automatically, providing the most precise
details. A true day/night camera, the VN-V685U provides excellent
image quality in low light situations which is achieved with the IR
cut filter to deliver images in light levels as low as 0.04 lux.
The VN-V685U utilizes a powerful ¼-inch
progressive scan CCD with 380,000 pixels. A full motion dual stream
codec delivers both MPEG4 and M-JPEG VGA streams simultaneously at
30 frames per second.
JVC's unique Hot-Swap functionality gives the
installer the ability to swap out the camera head while keeping the
digital hardware in place maintaining camera presets and connection
to the network for seamless maintenance. The hot swap camera head
provides One-touch-lock for quick de-installation and maintenance of
the camera head.
In addition, JVC’s plug and play platform
reduces installation time significantly.
The VN-V685U also supports Verint Systems’
Video Services over IP (VSIP) video surveillance protocols.
