JVC enters residential security market with network video line-up


Unique IP/Analog Network Video Recorder Serves as Hub for Complete Video Surveillance System

DENVER, CO.– JVC Professional Products Company introduces its V.Networks lineup of surveillance cameras and recorders to the residential custom installation market. The centerpiece of the advanced Internet protocol (IP) based video system is the new VR-N900U, standalone network video recorder (NVR). Supporting the system, JVC offers more than 20 analog and IP based cameras and monitors.

The VR-N900U is a standalone network server and recorder ideally suited for advanced residential security systems. It allows recording, monitoring and control of IP network cameras as well as conventional analog (coaxial) cameras. Homeowners can operate and monitor the system from anywhere in the world using a standard PC browser connected to the Internet. Optional software even allows control and monitoring of selected cameras using a PDA device.

In addition to providing secure and robust video monitoring capability, the system can be connected to moisture and temperature detectors, and send an e-mail notification when a violation occurs.

“With the increases in network speed of cable and fiber systems, we can now offer a world class IP surveillance system to residential users,” said Steve Martin, video security division manager, assistant vice president, JVC Professional Products Company. “We’ve come along way since the days of simple alarm systems. Homeowners can now keep an eye on their property from anywhere in the world.”

Traditionally, users of video surveillance systems had to choose between standalone analog video recorders connected with coaxial cables, or computer-based network recorders that required installation, configuration and licensing of external software packages. The VR-N900U ships with pre-installed, fully licensed Milestone software and is configured to accept both analog and IP camera inputs. Its single box design provides simple configuration and management of all sized surveillance systems using conventional front panel controls, or with an optional keypad and mouse.

Additionally, the Remote Client feature of the Milestone Xprotect software provides access for up to 10 users to view the images from the VR-N900U and the triplex feature enables users to view, record and playback images in real-time. The recorder’s VCR/DVD-like design provides familiar front panel controls including jog/shuttle and RGB monitor output.

The VR-N900U records high quality motion JPEG or MPEG-4 images up to 120 fps at VGA 640 x 840 resolution. Images are stored on the built-in 250GB hard disk drive. Users also have the ability to install an additional internal 250GB HDD.

The suggested list price for the VR-N900U is $5,550.00. High-resolution photos and color brochures are available on the JVC Web site at
