Cameras and Digital Recorders Deter Thieves, Alert Guards and Capture Evidence of Intrusion Attempts

"The VR-N100U is a networked solution that allows for high-quality images to be viewed and managed with optimal bandwidth usage," explains Scott Watson, Vice President Video Imaging Systems Division of JVC Professional Products Company. "For today's large-scale, enterprise-level security and surveillance needs, staying within the digital realm with IP cameras and the VR-N100U is the optimal means of managing hundreds or thousands of cameras over the Internet easily and cost-effectively."

The JVC VR-N100U is complete with camera, storage and network security management in a single system. Its architecture can support thousands of cameras on a 100 BaseT Ethernet network through a single IP address and can be managed independently of any operating system. The system is scalable, letting companies add additional network video recorders, cameras and storage hardware as their needs dictate.

As new cameras are added to the system, a discovery packet is sent by the VR- N100U to the camera to identify and configure the camera automatically, as well as to add the camera to the dynamic firewall. The system utilizes a Write Once Read Many (WORM) storage that records unalterable video, ensuring video integrity. Live and archived video can be accessed and managed through a standard Web browser, and the VR-N100U boasts integrated and easy to use search functionality for quick visual data retrieval.

The VRN eliminates the need for coaxial cable, and allows digital video to be recorded directly to the network device. Connection between the camera, VR-N100U and network is via standard CAT 5, CAT5R or CAT 6 twisted pair cable.

The VR-N100U-360 provides 360 GB of storage while the VR-N100U-900 has the capacity to store up to .9 Terabytes. Implemented into a basic large-scale security system, the VR-N100U-360 and the VR-N100U-900 provide up to ten or 30 days of video data storage, respectively under commonly used frame rate requirements. A 120GB drive is also provided for emergency back up.

Customers with large capacity needs, such as casinos, airports or other businesses that require frequent video retrieval from storage, can increase their storage capacity with an available JVC expansion chassis that offers up to six terabytes of capacity. The VR- N100U also works with JVC MC-8000 Series DVD/CD Library for large-scale optical storage.
