JVC Professional Products Co., a division of JVC Americas Corp., has upgraded its latest high-resolution, 1/3-inch CCD analog surveillance cameras. The new versions of the TK-C9200UA and TK-C9300UA box-style cameras, as well as the TK-C2201UA and TK-C2201WPUA fixed-dome models, feature improved image processing to deliver brighter, clearer, and more stable images under varying conditions.
With new 14-bit digital signal processing, the cameras deliver 600 TV lines of resolution, and Super LoLux sensitivity assures precise color reproduction, even in challenging lighting conditions. Plus, each camera also delivers 52db signal-to-noise ratio, and 3-D noise reduction reduces picture noise in dark environments. The eco-friendly cameras, which are already shipping, also use about 40 percent less power than conventional models.
Additional performance upgrades include improved edge enhancement, which 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. Images look more crisp in the LCD mode as well, and an improved internal brightness setting helps deliver a brighter image in various scenes.
"While the market share of networked video surveillance continues to increase, analog cameras still account for the majority of deployed CCTV systems," said Ian Scott, vice president, JVC Security Group. "As a result, producing innovative analog cameras continues to be a priority at JVC. These refinements of our latest analog models provide even better performance in the field."
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-C2201UA meets the vandal-resistant standard, while the TK-C2201WPUA features an outdoor-ready, IP66 compliant vandal and tamper-proof design.
Intuitive menus make detailed settings easy to manage on the TK-C9200UA and TK-C9300UA cameras. A true day/night camera, the TK-C9300UA adds ExDR Plus, a proprietary JVC technology for extended dynamic range that clearly displays people and objects in the foreground even when they are in front of an extremely bright background.
