JVC PoE PTZ Camera Overview

Author: John Honovich, Published on Mar 30, 2009

JVC PoE PTZ Camera

Manufacturer Description: “Power over Ethernet (PoE) IP network pan tilt zoom built into a IP66 water-proof/dust-proof/vandal resistant dome housing. Operating temperatures are -10° to 40° C/0° to 104° F with only PoE. Direct drive motor with the 360° endless rotation, 36x optical zoom, 0.04° to 400° pan speeds, automatic IR cut filter, image stabilizer and intelligent auto tracking. Revolutionary design hot swap camera head and comes with 3 year warranty.”

How *** ******* ** *********: It is the only direct drive IP PTZ on the market. Because it is direct drive, it is faster, likely more durable and uses less power. The lower power consumption enables it to use the current low speed PoE specification. JVC offers indoor and outdoor version of the product.

What ** *** ***** ** *** *******: Not having PoE for most PTZs creates logistical complexities and additional cost. This is especially challenging because PTZs are often positioned in distant outdoor locations where infrastructure cost is higher. Additionally, the faster and more precise movement of the PTZ should increase usability for operators.

Who *** *** *** *******: Many VMS systems do not support JVC's IP cameras. As such, you should check whether your current or potential VMS does support them. If you need a heater or a fan in the unit to deal with extreme heat or cold, you will not be able to use PoE only for this camera. The product is relatively inexpensive for a PTZ (on-line pricing $3200 for the outdoor model) making it affordable and attractive compared to other outdoor PTZs from Sony, Axis and Panasonic.
