For Immediate Release




WAYNE, NEW JERSEY (September 15, 2009) – JVC Professional Products, division of JVC U.S.A., announced today the integration of its IP video surveillance cameras with the Genetec IP video surveillance system. Genetec customers can now seamlessly integrate JVC’s line of V.Networks IP cameras, including PTZ models such as the VN-V686WPBU and powerful mini-dome cameras such as the VN-V225VPU, into their new and existing Omnicast deployments.

According to Geoff Anderson, JVC national marketing manager for security products, the integration illustrates JVC’s commitment to open architecture solutions. “Now, integrators have a choice of using the industry's top performing cameras with the popular Genetec video surveillance system,” he said.

V.Networks cameras feature JVC’s latest image processing circuitry to provide sharp images with high contrast and good color saturation. Features like Easy Wide-D improve dynamic range and provide details in poorly lit situations, while JVC’s efficient compression technologies conserve bandwidth without sacrificing image quality.

Through a unified, scalable interface, Omnicast provides seamless IP network management of digital video, audio, and data using hardware and IT infrastructures from various manufacturers. JVC is the latest IP camera manufacturer to be added to Genetec’s growing list of IP network camera drivers.
