JVC Professional Products Company, a producer of audio and video products for the broadcast and professional video marketplace, says its new VN-H57 Series of Internet protocol-based security cameras are now available.
The new cameras feature “True Day/Night” performance and “Super LoLux” HD technology for superior color reproduction, even in low light, JVC says. In addition, the camera’s embedded “clear logic video intelligence” image processing provides superior wide dynamic performance, back light compensation, edge enhancement and anti-fog capabilities, the company says.
There are four models in the series, the VN-H57U box camera, the VN-H257U vandal-resistant indoor mini dome camera, the VN-H157WPU outdoor (IP66) bullet camera, and the VN-H257VPU outdoor (IP66) vandal-proof dome camera. The new models feature built-in intelligent audio detection as well as motion detection, active tampering alarm, auto focus and bi-directional audio, the company says.
“Our new line of high-end Super LoLux cameras delivers the superior image quality that JVC is known for with True Day/Night performance, and offers a variety of form factors to suit any surveillance application,” said Ian Scott, JVC Security Group’s vice president. “Plus, with H.264 High Profile, our customers get the bandwidth and storage efficiencies that other manufacturers can’t deliver with H.264 baseline or main profile compression schemes,” he said.
Each camera in the VN-H57 Series includes a 1/3-inch Super LoLux complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor imager that delivers 1080p full HD 2.2MP at up to 30fps, and can produce rich color images in light as low as 0.15 lux, JVC says. The VN-H57U, which does not include an integrated lens, offers remote and auto back focus, while the other models offer remote and auto focus, as well as JVC’s exclusive fine focus adjustment technology. Other features include SD card recording, privacy mask, 3D noise reduction, alarm in/out, and a choice of power over Ethernet (PoE) or AC24V.
