Canon leverages imaging heritage to offer four Full HD network cameras

Product Profile

Canon Europe, world leader in imaging solutions has added four new Full HD resolution cameras to its product range; the VB-H41, VB-H610VE, VB-H610D and VB-H710F. The cameras Incorporate Canon’s high-end lens design and image processing technology.

The new cameras benefit from Canon’s 70 year heritage in lens design; all incorporate specially designed lenses with multiple double-sided aspherical elements to produce maximum optical performance. All the new cameras deliver outstanding zoom and wide angle performance as the lenses use glass with a high refractive index. Low light performance is enhanced with the use of an original Canon lens coating which reduces image ‘ghosting’ in IR light situations, so users can be confident that security can be maintained whatever the circumstances.  

The four new HD network cameras also deliver the high image quality expected from Canon as they incorporate the same DIGIC DV III image processors used in Canon’s state of the art Cinema EOS C300 broadcast system and XF300/XF305 professional camcorders. Canon’s DIGIC NET II network processor chip delivers multiple HD video streams so that sites with multiple viewing locations can be monitored effectively. 

Julian Rutland, Visual Communication Products and Solutions Director, Canon Europe said: “Our new Full HD range of network cameras combines Canon’s high quality image processing technology and heritage in lens design with our expertise in networking. The addition of these products is a significant step forward as we look to grow our business in the network camera space.”

The VB-H41 camera delivers 20x optical zoom while the VB-H610VE, VB-H610D and VB-H710F offer 3x optical zoom. A 112 degree angle-of-view across the VB-H610VE, VB-H610D and VB-H710F means that operators are able to take in a wide field of view for maximum coverage. The four new cameras offer best in class HD performance even in low-light conditions so can be used to clearly monitor even the darkest environments. The VB-H41 offers low light performance down to 0.4lux for colour and 0.2 lux for black-and-white while the VB-H610VE, VB-H610D and VB-H710F provide detail in conditions down to 0.3lux in colour and 0.15lux in black and white. Similarly, Canon’s Smart Shade Control function delivers visible images in difficult lighting conditions by compensating for dark image areas while keeping bright sections, so internal areas can be clearly and effectively monitored even when the image is impacted by external bright light from windows. 

As well as high image quality, Canon is dedicated to helping system integrators maintain security with easy to use, high performance analytics built into all of the new devices. A suite of advanced analytics means that system integrators can set their chosen camera to detect sound, objects being removed (or left behind), areas of motion or camera tampering. Also, Passing Detection can be configured to detect when someone passes a defined line across the image in a specific direction. Combining multiple lines enables the camera to monitor for people entering a secure site without detecting when staff leave the same area. 

All of the new devices save system integrators time and money as they can be remotely configured by a single operator. As a result, tasks that would usually take an hour can now take five minutes of one engineer’s time. 

The VB-H610VE, VB-H610D include Canon’s PRTZ function, so that individual engineers can remotely configure the camera’s angle, zoom and focus for easy adjustment during commissioning or system re-configuration, thereby reducing staff costs, time and any special arrangements that would need to be make re-configuration possible.
