JVC IP CCTV cameras

This product has now been discontinued, an alternative is the Axis Q6045-E

Outdoor-ready and vandal-resistant, the JVC VN-H657WPBU is a high-speed pan-tilt zoom (PTZ) network camera with continuous 360° rotation, combining HD 1080p resolution with a 18x optical zoom, providing a powerful tool to monitor over long distances and in great detail. True day/night capability and Super LoLux technology delivers excellent image reproduction round the clock and in the most challenging of light conditions.

The JVC VN-H657WPBU outdoor PTZ dome IP camera offers high-level surveillance with reliable direct drive 360° pan and tilt and 18x optical zoom for detailed large area coverage in full HD 1080p.True day/night capability in addition to Super LoLux technology and 3D noise reduction provide the VN-H657WPBU with advanced low light performance, capturing high quality full colour images down to 0.35 lux, with an infrared cut-filter automatically switching the camera to black and white when in darkness to capture high quality CCTV footage 24/7. The JVC VN-H657WPBU is also IP66 and IK10 rated for durable, robust outdoor use with protection against rain, dust, low temperatures and vandalism attempts. A wall mount bracket is included also.

The JVC VN-H657WPBU provides reliable and accurate monitoring, able to trigger an alarm to alert the user of activity through motion and tamper detection. The camera's advanced auto-tracking function is able to follow a moving object (e.g. car) without loosing it out of view. Support for audio communication also enables the camera to use sound detection and record audio when a microphone and speaker are connected (not included). Privacy masking provides optional blocking of private areas.

With support for H.264 High Profile this IP PTZ camera delivers high image quality whilst keeping bandwidth use down to a minimum. High Power-over-Ethernet (PoE+) provides for easy installation with the camera receiving and transmitting data and power through the one network cable. Edge recording onto an SD card (not included) provides a data backup solution preventing video interruptions in case of network connection issues.

Please note: this camera does not come with a PoE+ midspan, please select a power supply from the above drop down menu if required.

Key features & benefits

  • HD 1080p video capture provides high quality footage at 30 frames per second for smooth activity capture
  • Direct drive super-fast 360° pan/tilt with 18x optical zoom provides efficient and detailed monitoring of large areas
  • IK10 and IP66 rating with built-in heater protect the camera from vandalism attempts and rain, dust and low temperatures to make it outdoor-ready
  • True day/night with Super LoLux technology enables the camera to capture colour images in low light, automatically switching to monochrome capture in darkness for 24/7 high quality image capture
  • Audio communication support enables a speaker and microphone to be connected to the camera (not included) so verbal interaction can take place and audio can be recorded
  • 3D noise reduction technology further enhances low light capability, preventing noise blur when capturing moving objects (e.g. vehicles)
  • Motion, sound and tamper detection can trigger alarms to alert the user of activity and start recording
  • Privacy masking blocks out specific areas of the cameraÆs view so they are not recorded
  • H.264 high profile compression reduces file size with little effect on video footage quality
  • SD card recording provides flexible data storage, also providing backup in case of network connection problems
  • PoE+ support allowing one cable installation whilst maintaining all the camera's functions and functionality
