JVC unveils new line of full HD V.Networks cameras

WAYNE, NJ (April 6, 2011) – JVC Professional Products Company, a division of JVC Americas Corp., today introduced its Super LoLux HD TM line of 11 new V.Networks cameras at ISC West 2011 (Booth 2092), which runs through April 8 at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev. The new models are equipped with CMOS imagers that output full HD resolution, and offer multi-codec support, including M-JPEG, MPEG-4, and H.264.

"All H.264 compression is not the same. Many security camera manufacturers use H.264 Baseline or Main Profile, which doesn't provide the storage and bandwidth efficiencies that customers expect," explained Ian Scott, vice president, JVC Security Group. "JVC's cameras support H.264 High Profile, which uses significantly less bandwidth than H.264 Baseline or Main Profile-based cameras."

The new Super LoLux HD cameras deliver superior color reproduction, even in low light, and match the sensitivity of JVC's well established CCD-based cameras. The new cameras also include new Clear Logic Video Intelligence (CLVI) image processing, which compensates for back lighting and digitally removes ambient fog, haze, rain, or smoke.

There are entry-level, intermediate, and advanced models in the new Super LoLux HD product line, with a box style (less lens), indoor mini-dome, and outdoor dome camera available at each level. Each new camera is equipped with a 1/3-inch CMOS imager that can deliver up to 30 fps full frame rate, progressive HD images. Entry-level models provide 720p resolution, while intermediate and advanced models produce full 1080p images.

Other features include auto back focus, on-board recording to SD card, motion detection, privacy mask, and a variety of built-in video analytics features, including active tampering detection, audio detect, and tripwire. The cameras support ONVIF and PSIA standards for network cameras, as well as a wide variety of leading video management software (VMS) platforms, including Milestone Xprotect.

VN-V17U box style (less lens)
