JVC has expanded its V.Networks line-up of advanced IP-based video security products with the introduction of the new VN-X35U IP security camera. Combining JVC’s latest IP technologies, this new 1.3 megapixel camera offers real-time image scaling from VGA to QUAD VGA, without affecting the viewing angle, allowing users to conserve bandwidth with VGA images, yet benefit from megapixel resolution when needed.
Education, retail, government, law enforcement and other users that require the highest resolution will also benefit from the VN-X35U’s ability to digitally zoom in on the recorded image to provide precise image detail in any conditions day or night.
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 utilizes a highly sensitive 1/3″ progressive scan CCD with 1.3 megapixels. A full motion multi-stream codec delivers both JPEG and MPEG-4 streams simultaneously at 15 frames per second. 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 VN-X35U features a motion detection function that outputs an alarm, with two inputs and two outputs, whenever movement is detected within a pre-specified area of the image.
The JVC VN-X35U will be available sometime in October 2008.
