Milestone eases analogue-to-IP migration path

May 30th, 2014 by Frank Crouwel

Milestone XProtect VMSA big change from Milestone Systems: with the release of Milestone XProtect 2014 last week comes a significant change to the number of licenses required when using video encoders to migrate from analogue to IP. Previously, a Milestone XProtect camera license was required for each encoded video channel. For example, a video encoder with say 16 analogue cameras connected to it would require 16 Milestone XProtect device licenses. This is no longer the case.

IP cameras and MTBF figures

September 19th, 2012 by Frank Crouwel

There is a lively discussion on one of the LinkedIn groups discussing HD network video where the question was posed asking why IP camera manufacturers rarely publish MTBF (Mean Time Before Failures) figures. These figures are commonly available in IT, but not in the security world.

In answer to this, one manufacturer (JVC) provides these figures freely and you can download them in the form of a PDF, linked below.

I will ask other manufacturers whether they are willing to provide such information too. We will publish any further information we receive on this subject on this blog as and when it becomes available. Keep an eye on this space if you are interested.

Network Webcams Launch the new JVC IP HD Camera Range

August 22nd, 2012 by Kate Cederholm

JVC have recently introduced a new range of exciting and innovative HD Network Cameras.

A number of key technology developments have been introduced within the company’s latest professional IP camera series, including H.264 High Profile and Super LoLux technology.

JVC’s Super LoLux HD camera range delivers the high image quality and build that we’ve have come to expect. They give superior colour reproduction, even in low light, and also include new Clear Logic Video Intelligence (CLVI) image processing, which compensates for back lighting and digitally removes ambient fog, haze, rain, or smoke.

JVC’s LoLux VNT 16 entry-level series offers quality, reliability and picture performance at an affordable price. The LoLux line has been developed to meet the demands of low light applications, combining high resolution imaging with the latest integrated infrared LED technology.

Evaluation: JVC VN-C215V4U

June 27th, 2008 by Greg

JVC VN-C215V4UThe JVC VN-C215V4U claims discrete surveillance with high quality video output and a triple axis rotation lens for flexible installations. We’ve got one in the office so let’s see how it stands up.

VN-C215V4U Overview

The JVC VN-215V4U is a fixed dome camera and it’s fairly compact measuring 145mm diameter and 145mm high, which is only about half a foot. Aimed at the security market the camera has a 3-axis fixed lens mechanism which allows adjustment of the pan (175°), tilt (80°) and the rotation (175°) of the lens so it can be easily directed at any desired angle. The camera can be powered by 12V DC adaptor (not supplied) or by IEEE802.3af Power over Ethernet which we would always use as it makes installation very straight-forward. The camera also includes an analog output (Phono RCA out) so a monitor can be used at the point of installation to help with lens positioning and focus. The analog output is tucked inside the dome though so it’s purely an installation aid and cannot be used on a permanent basis. This isn’t a hybrid camera.
