Because analog cameras still account for the majority of deployed CCTV systems, JVC Professional Products Company, a division of JVC Americas Corp., has upgraded its latest high-resolution, 1/3-inch CCD analog surveillance cameras, the company says in a written statement.
The upgrades to the TK-C9200UA and TK-C9300UA box-style cameras, as well as the TK-C2201UA and TK-C2201WPUA fixed-dome models enable the cameras to deliver 600 TV lines of resolution, and precise color reproduction, even in challenging lighting conditions, the company says in a written statement. Those cameras feature improved image processing to deliver brighter, clearer, and more stable images under varying conditions, JVC says.
With new 14-bit digital signal processing, each camera delivers an industry-leading 52db signal-to-noise ratio, and 3D noise reduction reduces picture noise in dark environments, JVC says. In addition, the eco-friendly cameras, which are already shipping, use about 40 percent less power than conventional models.
Additional performance upgrades include improved edge enhancement, which makes highlighted objects more easily recognizable; auto tracking white balance is now more stable and not easily influenced by color objects in the scene; and the adjustable brightness range has also been widened, and objects illuminated by mercury-vapor light sources now look more natural with improved color reproduction.
The crispness of images is increased in the LCD mode as well, and an improved internal brightness setting helps deliver a brighter image in various scenes.
“While the market share of networked video surveillance continues to increase, analog cameras still account for the majority of deployed CCTV systems,” said Ian Scott, vice president, JVC Security Group. “As a result, producing innovative analog cameras continues to be a priority at JVC,” he said, adding, “Refinements of our latest analog models provide even better performance in the field.”
