VB-M40. Intelligent camera for mid to high end security & monitoring applications

Product Profile

Best in class optics

Canon's first megapixel network camera offers 20x zoom and a 55.4° horizontal viewing angle within the smallest, most discreet body in its class. VB-M40 draws together Canon's DIGIC NET and lens technology assets to deliver its most advanced network camera. Canon's DIGIC NET allows VB-M40 to stream video at 1280x960 resolution at 30 frames per second in H.264, a compression format combining high quality and high compression rates. Its industry-leading 20x zoom Auto Focus lens, combined with the 340° pan and 100° tilt mechanism, delivers precise, high-resolution images. The VB-M40 excels in low light conditions with a low-light performance in colour at 0.4 lux and B/W at 0.01 lux. In addition the IR cut filter Day/Night Function and Smart Shade Control ensure best image quality is delivered in any situation.

Intelligent monitoring applications

VB-M40 is suitable to be deployed in mid-to-high end surveillance markets such as: traffic management, city surveillance, retail, transportation, logistics and manufacturing. Its four embedded video content analytic functions are able to detect camera tampering, identify moved objects, removed objects and abandoned objects. Sound detection allows the camera to detect changes in volume. Detection functions can be set to activate recording and uploading to a server or email notification.

Advanced connectivity

Onboard two-way (full-duplex) audio allows easy hook up of a microphone and active speaker. So, live audio can be received from the camera site and a warning message can be relayed to potential intruders.

ONVIF Compatibility

The device supports the communication protocol ONVIF and is compatible with a range of 3rd party ONVIF-compliant equipment.

Versatile installation options

The VB-M40B is easy to install, on a ceiling or upright and is very efficient in terms of power usage. The camera supports power over Ethernet and conventional power. VB-M40 can be mounted in any indoor and outdoor optional protective dome housings can be selected: a smoked dome for discreet disguising of camera angle; a clear dome for maximum performance in low light conditions. Admin Tools are in-built, requiring no installation, and a built-in SD Memory Card saves back-up security logs, improving reliability.
