JVC adds Verint Systems’ VSIP Protocols to IP camera line

Integration of solutions to help security applications of all sizes


ATLANTA, GA (September 15, 2008) – Continuing the commitment to open architecture solutions and to deliver the most reliable, compatible and expandable security products to its customers, JVC announces the integration of Verint Systems’ Video Services over IP (VSIP) video surveillance protocols into its VN-V686U and VN-V686WPU pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) cameras and its VN-V25U and VN-V26U fixed cameras.

This integration is a result of market-driven demands to integrate JVC’s IP cameras, known for their extremely high picture quality and ease of installation, with the Verint Nextiva IP video portfolio. The Nextiva portfolio of networked video solutions helps organizations of all sizes — from small and mid-sized enterprises to major government and commercial organizations — enhance the security of their facilities and infrastructure and the performance of their business operations by networking video across multiple locations and applying advanced content analytics to extract actionable intelligence from live and stored video. By alerting security personnel to potential security threats, Nextiva helps organizations prevent security breaches, improve response time and enhance operational efficiency.

Now, Verint customers can take advantage of JVC's V.Networks cameras such as the SIA New Product Showcase award winning VN-V686WPU. The VN-V686 series cameras utilize JVC's unique high performance direct drive mechanism that provides faster and more precise response than typical PTZ cameras. The cameras' industry leading 36X optics can be aimed at very fast and extremely slow speeds and can maintain a 0.03° accuracy even after repeated fast panning and zooming. JVC's direct drive cameras install in minutes, and are protected by the industry's longest warranty.

JVC is one of the first camera manufacturers to implement Verint VSIP protocols into its cameras.

"JVC is committed to open architecture solutions and the Verint VSIP protocols allow us to connect with one of the leading IP surveillance company systems on the market," said Hajime Yamasaki, vice president, Security Products, JVC Professional Products Company. "Verint’s Nextiva IP video solutions are installed in airports, seaports, major retailers and countless other high end security systems around the world."

"We are excited to integrate Verint’s video services protocol with JVC’s IP cameras to broaden the scope of product offerings for our mutual customers and expand customers’ options to choose the best solutions that meet their needs," said Jim Clark, senior vice president and general manager, Verint Video Intelligence Solutions. "This showcases how Nextiva’s open platform provides ease of integration with leading technology products."

Verint and JVC have teamed up to optimize the integration, and the result is a comprehensive, feature-rich video solution that combines Nextiva with high performance JVC V.Networks PTZ cameras.
