This product has now been discontinued and replaced by the JVC VN-H657BU.

The JVC VN-V686BU is an indoor network dome camera with endless 360° pan operation and 36x optical zoom.

A 1/4 inch progressive scan CCD sensor with infrared cut filter delivers high quality images with good colour reproduction during daylight hours. During periods of low-light or at night the camera will automatically remove the IR cut filter and switch to black and white video sensitive to infrared illumination.

The camera’s advanced pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) direct drive motor provides fast movement speeds of up to 400 degrees/sec as well as highly precise control for following moving targets accurately. Advanced features include image stabilisation and motion-based auto tracking. Like all network cameras the VN-V686BU has an integrated web server and can be viewed over a Local Area Network (LAN), Wide Area Network (WAN) or via the Internet as a streaming IP webcam.

An outdoor version is available: JVC VN-V686WPU outdoor PTZ dome
