JVC UNVEILS FIXED NETWORK IP66 DOME CAMERA
WITH DUAL STREAM MPEG-4/M-JPEG

Wayne, NJ (March 31, 2009) – JVC, an industry leader in IP camera technology, extends its award-winning V.Networks line with the VN-V225VPU Fixed Network Dome Camera. Featuring dual stream MPEG-4 and Motion JPEG images, exclusive JVC “Fine Adjust” focusing technology, IP66 rated weather-proof and vandal-resistant design, Power over Ethernet (PoE), and open architecture API for easy customization, the VN-V225VPU is a durable network dome camera suited with features for the most demanding environments.

JVC engineers designed the VN-V225VPU with an array of features to suit any usage environment, including free shape privacy masking, built-in motion detection, Verint API compatibility, and a web based viewer/setup screen for quick setup and monitoring. The open architecture API allows for wide customization, bandwidth flexibility, and up to 20 simultaneous users.

Dual streaming MPEG4/MJPEG is a powerful tool to regulate bandwidth on IP networks and JVC added all the other critical features such as true day/night and vandal resistant housing,” says Geoff Anderson, national marketing manger for Security Products, JVC Professional Products Company. “But the real novelty is JVC’s patent pending fine adjustment feature to get the absolute clearest image from this VN-V225VPU.”

The VN-V225VPU employs a highly sensitive 1/4” progressive scan CCD with a built in 3.8x variable focus lens, providing image resolutions up to 640x480.
With streaming of MPEG-4 full frame images at 30fps, the VN-V225VPU is ideal for monitoring smooth, high frame rate images within a limited bandwidth. The VN-V225VPU also allows for simultaneous streaming of Motion JPEG images, an added benefit when high quality still pictures are required as evidence.
Bi-directional audio support allows for two-way audio communication when a microphone and speaker are attached. This not only provides the ability to communicate with people at the camera’s location, but allows the capture of audio information necessary for forensic evaluation.

True day/night operation is achieved in the VN-V225VPU with the IR Cut Filter to deliver images in light levels as low as 0.4 lux in color and 0.03 lux in black & white mode. Proper video levels are ensured with an advanced AGC (Automatic gain control) that optimizes picture quality at all times during the day. A day / night function removes the IR filter and switches over to the black and white mode at night.

The VN-V225VPU supports industry standard Power over Ethernet (POE) for quick installation. Video, audio and power are carried on a single Ethernet cable instead of separate data and AC power cables. The robust IP66-standard dust-/waterproof and vandal-resistant design makes the VN-V225VPU suitable for outdoor monitoring systems. The optional heater allows for operation in temperatures down to -30C/-22F.

The list price for the VN-V225VPU is $999. The camera will be available in April 2009. High-resolution photos and color brochures are available on the JVC Web site at http://pro.jvc.com.
