Canon leverages imaging heritage to offer four Full HD network cameras

Canon Europe, world leader in imaging solutions, added four new Full HD resolution cameras to its product range; the VB-H41, VB-H610VE, VB-H610D and VB-H710F. 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. Compatible with all major 3rd party solutions and ONVIF v2.2 and Profile S compliant, the new cameras will be available from December 2012.

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

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-M40, VB-M600D, VB-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."See the album with captions
