JVC Launches Camera Capable of Recording in Total Darkness
Featuring IR LED technology, JVC's TK-T8101WPRU bullet camera is designed to capture images in total darkness.
JVC has released the TK-T8101WPRU, a new analog bullet camera with integrated IR LED technology for use in various lighting situations, including complete darkness.
Part of JVC's LoLux security camera line, the TK-T8101WPRU features 10-bit signal processing, a high resolution IT CCD, and a 3.3-12 millimeter variable focal lens. The camera's low light sensitivity is "0.05 lux for color, 0.015 for black-and-white, and 0 lux with active IR LED," according to information released by the company.
Other features of the camera include:
- Automatic high light compensation for use in extreme white light;
- Backlight compensation;
- 600 TV lines of resolution;
- A 52 dB signal-to-noise ratio;
- A waterproof and dustproof die-cast aluminum housing with tempered glass and sunshade;
- The ability to operate in temperatures between 14 and 122 degrees farenheit;
- Four areas of motion detection;
- Eight zones of privacy masking; and
- Digital noise reduction.
“When paired with an infrared camera, LED technology can produce security video in total darkness," said Ian Scott, vice president, JVC Security Group. "Our new TK-T8101WPRU features 28 built-in LEDs, which allow for an IR distance of 115 feet, so there is no costly additional lighting needed.”
The TK-T8101WPRU will begin shipping in March with a suggested list price of $350. More information is available at pro.jvc.com.
