A 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.
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.
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.
