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.
