Don’t miss a thing! Canon introduces four 1.3 megapixel network cameras and new recording software

Product Profile

Canon Europe, world-leader in imaging solutions, announces the launch of four new 1.3 Megapixel cameras in its network camera range: the VB-M40, VB-M600D, VB-M600VE and VB-M700F, and a new software application for megapixel network cameras: the RM-64; RM-25 and RM-9, which support recording from a maximum of 64, 25 and 9 cameras respectively.

Ideal for use in security surveillance solutions, the VB-M40VB-M600DVB-M600VE and VB-M700F cameras all have a common set of high specifications - 1.3 Megapixel, wide angle megapixel lenses, ease of installation features, and four embedded analytics functions.

  • The VB-M40 is a high spec pan/tilt/zoom network camera with 20x optical zoom, superior low-light performance. VB-M40 is suitable to be deployed in traffic management, city surveillance, retail, transportation, logistics and manufacturing.
  • The VB-M600D is a discrete dome shape network camera, to be either ceiling or wall-mounted in spaces such as public transport stations, airports, banks, hotels, entertainment venues, car parks, and shopping centres.
  • The VB-M600VE is a strengthened vandal-resistant version of the VB-M600D, shock-resistant to 50 joules, water - resistant and dust- resistant to IP66 rating and operational in temperatures from -30° to 50°C[1], making it ideal for higher-risk or outdoor environments such as public stations, offices, car parks, banks, retail stores, airports and transportation hubs.
  • The VB-M700F is a high-spec. standard box camera. Available with additional outdoor housing, this model is ideal for video surveillance applications that require fixed monitoring to be installed on the outside of a building.

The 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.

In addition, all cameras include a privacy mask feature that allows blocking up to eight privacy sensitive areas such as cash points, public areas or entries that are locked by security pin pads.

All fixed models support the new Canon PTRZ function for easy installation, which allows one to setup the camera lens angle and zoom remotely. This will greatly enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of installations.

Also, all models support SSL and IPSEC to provide best possible data security for remote video streams. All devices are in conformance with ONVIF (v1.02) and therefore can be easily integrated in systems with 3rd party ONVIF compliant equipment.

Floris Oranje, Business Development Manager, Network Camera Solutions, Canon Europe, says: "Canon has introduced 70 years of optical heritage to the Video Surveillance market. The new devices and software announced today make Canon's cutting edge lens technology and highly detailed video capture available to our broadest range of customers ever. From sites with changing light and weather conditions, where water or dust resistance is required to areas vulnerable to vandalism, Canon network cameras will ensure businesses don't miss a thing."
