All The Precision and Quality to Capture the Crucial Moment

JVC’s new dome camera puts everything you’d want from a surveillance camera into a stylish design. The TK-C686 Series incorporates a newly developed Direct Drive Motor for its pan/tilt mechanism to ensure long-term preset position accuracy that far outshines conventional belt-type drives. It also contributes to lower operation noise, which is essential for use in hospitals, museums and other quiet environments. With its high-performance and host of intelligent features, the TK-C686 Series makes your surveillance system more powerful and reliable for a wide array of environments.


Direct Drive Motor – Newly-developed mechanism to offer precise and highly responsive pan/tilt movement

The Direct Drive Motor enables perfect control of camera mechanism speeds, even at high 36x magnification the camera can quickly and accurately capture images, from 500°/sec to 0.04°/sec at the slowest creep speed.


Direct Drive Motor Mechanism Maximizes the Power of 36x Zoom

Silent and Accurate Operation for Reliable Monitoring

Instead of a conventional belt-type mechanism, the TK-C686 Series incorporates a Direct Drive Motor for Pan/Tilt operation, greatly increasing accuracy and decreasing operation noise. With an accuracy of 0.03°, it can precisely maintain preset camera positions even after frequent panning and tilting, which becomes especially important at high zoom magnifications like 36x. With an ordinary camera (with low accuracy such as 0.1°), the camera position gradually shifts each time the camera is panned or tilted, so that after frequent usage the position becomes totally different from the initial correct position. The higher the zoom ratio a camera offers, the more crucial its accuracy becomes, and with its Direct Drive Motor, high accuracy is assured. Another benefit of the Direct Drive Motor is low operation noise, making the TK-C686 Series an ideal unit for use in hospitals or museums where silent operation is a must.


Quick and Easy Installation and Maintenance

Thanks to its “One-touch lock” mechanism, installation is extremely easy. Simply insert the camera unit to the bracket, and that’s all, greatly reducing time and cost for installation and maintenance.


Proven Reliability with JVC Standard: 2 million zooms/4 million focusing operations

Assurance of reliability comes not only from JVC’s long years of experience and solid track record, but also by inspecting every single product at our QC facility based on our strict quality standards. For the TK-C686 Series, this includes grueling tests for Pan/Tilt and Zoom in/out movement accuracy. You can also count on its durability, have been designed to endure long-term usage by assuming approx. 2 million times of zooming and 4 million times of focusing. Numbers are guides and may vary depending on the usage conditions.)


Full-featured intelligent security camera for a variety of environments

ExDR (Extended Dynamic Range) with Dual Shutter

Bright areas of a scene are shot with a high-speed shutter while dark areas receive normal exposure. Both sets of data are then combined to create a single, well-balanced image with light and dark areas perfectly exposed.

Privacy mask for protecting against intrusive monitoring

Up to 8 masked areas can be set as hidden areas to protect subjects from invasion of their privacy.

Electronic Sense Up for low-light situations

Electronic sense up function provides higher sensitivity level for monitoring in dark locations by lengthening the exposure time automatically.

Display mode for CRT and LCD

By choosing the display mode that matches the monitor being used, you’ll get images with optimal brightness regardless of whether you are using a CRT or LCD monitor.

IR Cut filter ON/OFF function for round-the-clock surveillance

The IR cut filter automatically switches between ON and OFF according to the level of ambient light. In daytime it outputs a high-quality color image, and at night the filter mechanism removes the IR filter to output black-and-white images with greater sensitivity. When utilizing IR lamps, an external trigger for night mode is recommended.

Image Stabilizer to correct image blur

Even in cases where the camera is shook by the wind or vibrations coming from its surroundings, the Image Stabilizer function helps reduce image blur. This function is invaluable in outdoor setups, such as Pendant mount style installations which are especially susceptible to the effects of vibrations.

Motion Detect and Tracking function

This function outputs an alarm whenever movement is detected within a pre-specified area of the image. It can also be used to automatically track a moving object or person for about 30 seconds. (The red frame of the detected subject is shown only in Demonstration Mode.)
