CanonCanon network camera : Expanded audio features, built-in servers and powerful zoom lenses are the highlights of Canon's newly expanded line of Network camera products, making them great solutions for webcasting, distance learning and teleconferencing needs and security monitoring. Both the new Canon Fixed Network Camera and the new Pan/Tilt/Zoom Network Camera feature an 26X Optical Zoom Lens and a 12X Digital Zoom to enable users to capture fine detail from far distances and crisp 640-by-480-pixel resolution video with up to 30 frames-per-second quality. The Two-Way Audio features provided on both new models and the Power Over Ethernet advantages of the VB-C50FSi Fixed Network Camera provide new levels of performance.
Canon VB-C50FSi network video introductionCanon VB-C50Fsi - High quality CCD
The two cameras also feature a quarter-inch, 340,000-effective-pixel CCD for high-quality image capture combined with powerful low-light (1/30 shutter speed) capabilities. In addition, a Motorized Infrared (IR) Cut Filter can be turned off to significantly brighten the viewing area. Both the Fixed Network Camera and the new Pan/Tilt/Zoom Network Camera also include a Silence Detection feature that transmits audio data only when sound is present, for reducing network traffic.

VB-C50FSi network camera - For everyone
"Whatever the needs of the Video-Over-IP-Camera-user may be, Canon has the features and performance they're looking for," said Yukiaki Hashimoto, senior vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a subsidiary of Canon Inc. "Whether it's a Fixed Camera or a Pan/Tilt/Zoom Camera, Canon's line of Network Video Solutions products now includes models with versatile Two-Way Audio features designed to meet the critical needs of an ever-wider range of applications, including telemedicine, distance learning, Webcasting, video conferencing and security monitoring."

Canon network camera - Power over Ethernet
The new VB-C50FSi Fixed Network Camera is designed for advanced monitoring applications best satisfied by a stationary camera such as building entrances and ATMs. The VB-C50FSi's Power Over Ethernet (PoE) feature which takes advantage of its IEEE 802.3af compliancy - allows the VB-C50FSi to receive both data and power through a single Ethernet cable. Because PoE makes a separate cable for electrical power unnecessary, this feature simplifies installation in single or multi-camera systems, particularly at sites where AC outlets are not readily accessible.

Canon Pan/Tilt/Zoom - Features
For applications where a moving camera is essential, such as warehouses, Canon's new VB-C50i/VB-C50iR Pan/Tilt/Zoom Network Camera provides a wide-ranging pan of +/-100 degrees and tilt of +90/-30 degrees to quickly survey any site (the VB-C50iR is the Camera's reverse-mount version, which features a pan of +/- 170 degrees and tilt of +10/-90 degrees).

Canon VB-C50Fsi - Audio advantages
Both the new VB-C50FSi Fixed Network Camera and the new VB-C50i/VB-C50iR Pan/Tilt/Zoom Network Camera can capture, play back, and transmit two-way audio over an IP network. The audio potential of these new cameras supports the needs of business people who want to share information across continents; medical professionals who want to transmit data from remote locations; educators who want to enhance their curriculum; religious leaders who want to reach home-bound parishioners; Webcasters who want to demonstrate product applications; security professionals; and all those who want to transmit quality video and audio while saving time and money. Using Canon's optional VB-EX50 Multi-Terminal Module, users can take full advantage of both cameras' audio features, which include live audio transmission, motion- or sensor-triggered playback of pre-recorded audio, and audio recording. The VB-EX50 Multi-Terminal Module enables users to connect a microphone to either the VB-C50FSi Fixed Network Camera or the VB-C50i/ VB-C50iR Pan/Tilt/Zoom Network Camera to not only see the video at the camera's location but hear the audio as well (using a speaker-equipped PC and either Admin Viewer or Viewer for PC software). This feature is useful for such applications as customer-service monitoring, event Webcasting, and video conferencing.

Canon network-camera - Live voice data
Live voice data can also be sent over an IP network to both cameras. Users can speak into a microphone connected to their PC and be heard through a powered speaker connected to the camera (also via Admin Viewer software). In addition, a pre-recorded audio file can be played at the camera's location at scheduled times or when triggered by an event. In a security-monitoring application, a powered speaker connected to the camera can play back a pre-recorded message any time visitors approach the reception desk (for example, "Thank you for visiting, please take a seat and we will be with you shortly"). Or, a department store could alert customers to special sales promotions at pre-set intervals.

VB-C50FSi network camera - Video options
Both the new VB-C50FSi Fixed Network Camera and the new VB-C50i/VB-C50iR Pan/Tilt/Zoom Network Camera feature a Built-In Network Server that can provide viewing for up to 50 clients simultaneously. An easy set-up feature enables both cameras to be connected to a LAN or the Internet within minutes. And both cameras' distinctive built-in motion-detection feature can send transmit an alert if motion is detected in pre-selected portions of the picture. For added convenience, both cameras offer pre-set zoom positions for easier monitoring. And to enhance visibility in dark areas of the image due to backlight or shade, both cameras are equipped with a Three-Step backlight control function. Also, supplied Admin Viewer software provides for shade correction, which increases brightness of dark areas without affecting other areas of the image. Both cameras offer simultaneous video distribution in various frame sizes, including (640 x 480, 320 x 240, and 160 x 120).

Canon network camera - Software
Supplied software is available with a range of features including: VB Administration Tools, which includes a panorama-creation tool, a view-restriction tool, scheduling, and more; the VB Collector Software featuring schedule-based downloads of captured images, automatic downloading, Web browser viewing, and more. Optional viewing software for both cameras includes Canon's WebView Livescope MV 2.1 LE and WebView Livescope MV 2.1 for display of up to 16 Canon NVS Cameras at a time on one computer screen. WebView Livescope Viewer for Pocket PC software allows cameras to be accessed and controlled from a handheld PDA. Additional monitoring versatility is provided by Canon's optional VK-64 Version 1.1 or VK-16 Version 1.1 Network Video Recording Software, which provides the ability to view and record high-quality, full-motion video over IP from as many as 64 Canon Network Cameras on a single PC storage server. And because this video is nonlinear, archiving and search functions are fast and efficient. Canon's VK-64 Version 1.1 and VK-16 Version 1.1 Network Video Recording Software also provides a wide variety of recording and playback options. To further enhance the new cameras, Canon is offering a software developer's kit (SDK). This SDK will permit developers to expand the functionality and performance of the cameras. These customized software applications may then be shared or sold independently amongst the community of users.

Fixed Network Camera - Price and Availability
The Canon VB-C50FSi Fixed Network Camera has a suggested list price of $1349. The Canon VB-C50i/VB-C50iR Pan/Tilt/Zoom Network Camera has a suggested list price of $1799. The VB-EX50 has a suggested list price of $149. All models may be purchased at authorized Canon dealers. The VB-C50i, VB-C50FSi, and optional VB-EX50 will be available in mid September. The reverse mounted VB-C50iR will be available in early October.
