JVC reveals IP-based security camera series

JVC Professional Products has revealed its VN-H57 series of IP-based security cameras, featuring day/night performance and Super LoLux HD technology.

Furthermore the models have embedded Clear Logic Video Intelligence (C.L.V.I.) image processing for back light compensation, edge enhancement, and anti-fog capabilities.
There are four models in the series: the VN-H57U box camera, VN-H257U vandal-resistant indoor mini dome camera, VN-H157WPU outdoor (IP66) bullet camera, and VN-H257VPU outdoor (IP66) vandal-proof dome camera. The models feature built-in intelligent audio detection as well as motion detection, active tampering alarm, auto focus, and bi-directional audio.
All Super LoLux HD cameras offer multi-codec support, including M-JPEG, MPEG-4, and H.264 High Profile, and can output a dual stream of M-JPEG and H.264 simultaneously. JVC’s H.264 High Profile DSP maintains image quality and offers up to 50 percent better compression efficiency than H.264 Baseline Profile or H.264 Main Profile.
Each camera in the VN-H57 Series includes a 1/3-inch Super LoLux CMOS imager that delivers 1080p full HD 2.2MP at up to 30fps – and can produce rich colour images in light as low as 0.15 lux. 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 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. The cameras also support ONVIF and PSIA standards for network cameras, as well as a wide variety of leading video management software (VMS) platforms, including Milestone Xprotect.
