JVC VN-V685U network dome IP camera with day and night function and 360 degree endless rotation, PoE support and 27x zoom

JVC VN-V685U network dome IP camera with day and night function and 360 degree endless rotation, PoE support and 27x zoom

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

The JVC VN-V685U is a controllable pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) dome camera with an endless 360° rotation and 27x optical zoom (864x combined with 32x digital zoom).

High image quality is assured from a progressive scan CCD imaging sensor with automatic IR cut filter for true day/night operation and easy Wide-D provides effective backlight compensation when areas are prone to extreme contrast lighting conditions.

The VN-V685U includes JVC’s PTZ Direct Drive motor providing highly precise movement at fast or slow speeds, highly accurate preset positioning and silent operation ideal for hospitals, libraries, museums etc. Like all network cameras the VN-V686U 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.

Note: This camera does not include a power supply. Please select one if required from the options above.

  • Dual streaming allows for simultaneous MJPEG and MPEG-4 streaming at 30fps
  • Auto tracking can be set to track a moving object automatically
  • True day/night function automatically switches from colour to black and white video during periods of low light for greater sensitivity allowing 24-hour surveillance
  • Wide dynamic range (WDR) using the camera’s Easy Wide-D function will display subjects clearly when standing in dark or bright areas of the same image
  • Privacy masking allows sensitive areas of the live image to be masked from view
  • Built-in video motion detection used for alarm based activity
  • FTP client function can transfer images by FTP periodically or based on alarm
  • Mail notification function can be used to notify the user of any alarm activity by email
