JVC LAUNCHES Power over
Ethernet (PoE) INDOOR/OUTDOOR
PTZ NETWORK CAMERAS WITH 36x OPTICAL ZOOM
(March 31, 2009) –
Providing greater precision and super fast PTZ movement (up to
400°/sec), JVC’s new VN-V686BU and
VN-V686WPBU Power over Ethernet (PoE) cameras with 36x optical zoom
quickly and accurately reproduce faces or license plates from a far
distance while maintaining superb optical quality.
As part of JVC’s V.Networks line-up, the
VN-V686BU and VN-V686WPBU encompass the
most cutting-edge IP camera technologies
such as high image quality, MPEG-4
/Motion JPEG full-frame dual stream at 30 fps and direct
drive motor mechanism for extreme accuracy of 0.03° and silent
operation for surveillance applications in retail, education,
medical and government.
The VN-V686BU and VN-V686WPBU both comply
with the IEEE 802.3af industry standard of Power over Ethernet for
reliable connection to IEEE 3af standard power sources. IEEE 802.3af
PoE technology is widely deployed and speeds installation for video
surveillance projects. JVC’s experience with PoE has been turned
to an advantage as a product feature now that PoE is quickly
becoming the preferred method of powering IP network cameras. JVC is
the first manufacturer to develop a PTZ PoE network camera that has
36x optical zoom and endless 360° rotation with its smooth direct
The VN-V686BU and VN-V686WPBU PTZ cameras are
part of JVC’s well established V.Networks
line-up of advanced IP-based video security products, which provide
the most reliable, proven and secure surveillance solutions
available. V.Networks products embody three core competencies:
imaging, networking and mechanism design to deliver the world’s
most advanced IP surveillance system.
“The VN-V686BU and VN-V686WPBU extend the
PoE capability to outdoor high performance Pan Tilt Zoom 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 Physical Security Products, JVC Professional
Products Group. “The VN-V686BU and VN-V686WPBU are designed and
manufactured by JVC’s world class team and were 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 delivers
PoE capability in both indoor and outdoor commercial grade PTZ
The VN-V686BU and VN-V686WPBU PTZ cameras can
be powered through Ethernet connection and provide 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, the
silent direct drive motor in both models provides quiet operation so
the cameras are virtually undetectable.
The VN-V686BU and VN-V686WPBU are equipped
with a powerful 36x 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. These
true day/night cameras provide excellent image quality in low light
situations, achieved with the IR cut filter to deliver images in
light levels as low as 0.04 lux.
The VN-V688BU and VN-V686WPBU utilize a
powerful ¼-inch progressive output 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
significantly reduces installation time.
