JVC expands residential security market lineup with 1.25 megapixel ip-network camera
JVC expands its V.Networks line-up of advanced IP based video security products with the introduction of the new VN-X35U 1.25 megapixel IP security camera. In any conditions day or night, the VN-X35U digitally zooms in on the recorded image to provide precise image detail. The VN-X35U creates a surveillance environment where the user can see an image at four times the resolution of standard IP network cameras.
“The VN-X35U coupled with the VR-N900U, standalone network video recorder (NVR), is the perfect solution for advanced residential security systems,: said Geoff Anderson, national marketing manager for Security Products, JVC Professional Products Company. “To put homeowners at ease, the system can be connected to motion, fire, smoke and moisture sensors, and instantly send an e-mail notification when a trouble is detected,” he added.
The VN-X35U utilizes a highly sensitive 1/3″ progressive scan CCD with 1.25 megapixels. A full motion multi-stream codec delivers both JPEG and MPEG-4 streams simultaneously at 15 frames per second. The camera’s motion detection function outputs an alarm, with two inputs and two outputs, whenever movement is detected within a pre-specified area of the image.
In addition, bi-directional audio with built-in microphone and speaker jacks, provides not only audio information necessary for forensic evaluation purposes, but the ability to communicate with people at the camera’s location. With QUAD-VGA resolution, up to four times the area can be monitored so fewer cameras are required for surveillance. The digital PTZ function allows panning and zooming of the image with no moving parts. This can not only save money on the initial purchase, but adds reliability and reduces maintenance costs.
The camera’s true day/night operation is achieved with the IR Cut Filter to deliver images in light levels as low as 0.3 lux in color and 0.2 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-X35U 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.
V.Networks products combine JVC’s legendary high picture quality with state-of-the-art IP technology. As one of the first manufacturers of IP based video cameras and network recorders, JVC is the only major brand that designs and builds the key components in its IP systems in its own factories. Plug and play features greatly simplify installation and configuration for system integrators, while JVC’s open platform provides superb value opportunity for resellers. As part of JVC’s V.Networks system, the VN-X35U is the perfect complement to JVC’s VR-N900U or VR-N1600U network video recorders which provide an all-digital IP security solution for residential to enterprise level security systems.
