JVC VN-V686BU network dome IP camera with day and night function and 360 degree endless rotation and 36x optical zoom

JVC VN-V686BU network dome IP camera with day and night function and 360 degree endless rotation and 36x optical zoom

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
