Canon VC-C50i Pan / Tilt / Zoom Communication Camera

Product Profile

This PTZ camera has outstanding zoom capacity to capture every detail.  With a 26x Canon telephoto lens and 400K CCD sensor, the VC-50i produces extremely detailed images, making this camera ideal for high level surveillance monitoring where accuracy and precision are essential.  For ceiling installation, a reverse-mount model (VC-C50iR) is also available.

The camera delivers colour images even when operating in very dim light conditions – as low as 1 lux – thanks to a bright f/1.6 lens and a slow shutter speed.  A monochrome image can be produced in total darkness, using the IR Night Mode.  The integral LED illuminator provides a viewing range of up to 3 metres, and additional infrared lighting can be used to extend the viewing range still further. 

The VC-C50i includes a PTZ mechanism with a wide 200° pan and 120° tilt range, and the VC-C50iR provides an extended 340° pan and 100° tilt range, but is otherwise identical.  Both models have 9 preset positions, for install recall of camera angle and zoom settings.

A cascade facility allows up to 9 cameras to be connected together, via the RS-232C interface, and these cameras are fully compatible with Canon’s VB150 Camera Server.  An Infrared remote control handset is also available, allowing an operator to control the PTZ functions locally.
