Canon VB-C60. Whatever your surveillance needs, it’s got them covered

Product Profile

The VB-C60 PTZ network camera boasts an industry-leading 40x zoom lens and Image Stabilizer. Progressive scan, advanced motion detection and two-way audio make it ideal for premium surveillance uses.

Industry-leading optics

The VB-C60 utilises the most advanced Canon lens ever fitted to a network camera. Its industry-leading 40x zoom with Auto Focus and Image Stabilizer deliver steady, sharp images, and combined with the 340° pan and 115° tilt mechanism make the VB-C60 suitable for surveillance in both open and confined spaces. The camera excels in low-light conditions, with Auto Day/Night switching making it possible to capture full colour images as low as 0.7 lux - or 0.2 lux in monochrome Night Mode. Progressive scan video also helps cut back on noise, so even fast-moving subjects are captured smoothly.

High-quality MPEG4 and Motion JPEG video

Supporting both MPEG4 and Motion JPEG formats, the camera is capable of delivering high-quality video up to 30 fps at VGA resolution (640 x 480). Transmitted footage can be distributed to a wide audience of up to 30 simultaneous clients (or up to 10 clients using MPEG4). It's also possible to install a small-scale video surveillance system using the bundled VK-Lite software, enabling users to control the recording and playback of up to four cameras from their computer.

Advanced connectivity

Onboard two-way (full-duplex) audio means you can easily hook up a microphone and active speaker, so live audio can be received from the camera site and a warning message relayed to potential intruders. It's also simple to integrate the camera into your existing security setup, with built-in terminals for connecting external devices like sensors and alarms.

Onboard intelligence

The VB-C60 uses advanced motion detection and auto tracking to support event-based notification. Once the camera has detected a moving subject - or a connected alarm has been triggered - it can be set to send a recorded image of the event or an email notification to users so they know as soon as there is any potential threat.

Versatile installation options

The VB-C60 is easy to install either on the ceiling or in an upright position, and Power over Ethernet (PoE) support means a single LAN cable can both power the camera while also transferring data from it.  Two optional dome housings are available for added protection and more discreet monitoring: a smoked dome for disguising the camera angle, and a clear dome for when maximum performance in low-light conditions is required.
