JVC Upgrades Analog Surveillance Cameras
JVC Professional Products upgraded its four latest high-resolution, 1/3-inch CCD analog surveillance cameras.
According to JVC, improved edge enhancement makes highlighted objects more easily recognizable. Auto tracking white balance is now more stable and not easily influenced by color objects in the scene. The adjustable brightness range has also been widened, and objects illuminated by mercury-vapor light sources now look more natural with improved color reproduction. Plus, in LCD mode, images look more crisp and the internal setting for brightness is improved, which helps deliver a brighter image in various scenes, according to JVC.
"Despite the increased market share of networked video surveillance, analog cameras still account for the lion's share of deployed CCTV systems," said Ian Scott, vice president of JVC's Physical Security Group, in a statement. "As a result, producing innovative analog cameras continues to be a priority at JVC. Even though we introduced these surveillance cameras late last year, we have refined them to provide even better performance in the field."
All four models deliver 580 TV lines of resolution and feature a 12-bit digital signal processor for high-quality images. Super LoLux Sensitivity assures precise color reproduction even in challenging lighting conditions. Each camera delivers an industry-leading 52db signal-to-noise ratio, and 3D noise reduction reduces picture noise in dark environments. Plus, the cameras use about 40 percent less power than conventional models.
The TK-C2201UA and TK-C2201WPUA fixed dome cameras feature a variable focus lens with a patent pending fine focus adjustment (in addition to normal focus ring and lock screw). The TK-C2201U meets the vandal-resistant standard, while the TK-C2201WPU features an outdoor-ready, IP66 compliant vandal and tamper proof design.
The upgraded TK-C2201UA (MSRP $360), TK-C2201WPUA (MSRP $490), TK-C9200UA (MSRP $265), and TK-C9300UA (MSRP $332) are now shipping. Lenses for the TK-C9200U and TK-C9300U are sold separately.
