Two high-performance fixed mini-dome cameras from JVC

Product Profile

JVC's VN-C215 series IP-network fixed dome cameras from JVC includes the VN-C215V4U which is designed for internal installations and the VN-C215VP4U vandal resistant model is ideal for use in demanding applications and outdoor installation.

The VN-C215VP4U is JVC's first vandal resistant IP-network dome camera meets a rating of IP66.  It has a durable die-cast aluminium chassis with polycarbonate cover and incorporates an optional heater unit to allow the camera to operate in temperatures reaching -30°C.  This camera is suitable for installations such as prisons, campuses, parking garages, railway stations, and other environments where impact resistance and weatherproofing is paramount.

Both cameras have a 3.6 x built-in variable focal length iris lens measuring 2.8 - 10mm.  The Easy Day/Night function enables clear and well-defined images in black-and-white and colour to be captured 24/7.  A triple axis rotation mechanism also simplifies installation.

A maximum high-speed frame rate of 30fps in VGA resolution (640x480) is achieved using a Motion-JPEG compression.  Camera set-up and viewing of images can be achieved using a standard web browser over the internet or via SMTP or FTP.  They have multicast capabilities (GMP version 2) to enable multiple client access.  Both cameras use PoE functionality, according to the IEEE 802.3af standard, which reduces installation costs and consolidates the power source to a central location. AC24V power can also be used.

Designed for indoor surveillance applications, the VN-C215V4U has a clear cover and inner camera cover to avoid detection of the lens.  A mounting device enables each of the cameras to be installed in three different ways avoiding the use of a bracket.
