Our take on the JVC GV-LS1 Live Streaming Camera

by Woody Sherman

The JVC GV-LS1 live streaming camera is perfect for applications where you need live video streaming and recording from an unmanned position. With its electronic tilt/pan/zoom capability, which blows up the HD picture for enhanced monitoring of the scene it's capturing, you'll have the detail you need for applications like home and business security. Plus the Super LoLux technology and wide-angle lens will make sure you see the things other cameras in its class might miss.

Available apps for Android™ and Apple® smartphones and tablets assist you in controlling and monitoring the camera.
