CanonH41Canon U.S.A. Inc., Lake Success, N.Y., introduced its first-ever line of Full HD IP Security cameras. The four new cameras include pan-tilt-zoom and IP66 vandal-resistant fixed dome, indoor fixed dome, and “box” style models. They integrate sophisticated technologies derived from Canon’s digital cameras and HD lenses, according to the company.

The four new products include:

  • VB-H41 pan-tilt-zoom IP camera with a 20x wide-angle zoom lens (shown)
  • VB-H610VE fixed vandal-resistant IP 66-rated IP dome camera
  • VB-H610D fixed indoor IP dome camera
  • VB-H710Fbox-style fixed IP camera

All of the cameras feature class-leading low-light performance; a Genuine Canon aspherical wide-angle zoom lens with optimal lens coating technology; a 2.1 megapixel 16:9 aspect ratio widescreen CMOS image sensor; and a pair of proprietary Canon DIGIC processors, the company described.

Advanced Canon technology built into these four IP security cameras includes sophisticated analytic capabilities as well as ONVIF Profile S conformance for improved compatibility with other ONVIF-compliant third-party security products, Canon stated. Built-in video analytics assist in identifying potentially crucial details including moving, removed, and abandoned object detection as well as passing (tripwire) detection.

“These new cameras provide outstanding imaging performance and sophisticated user benefits to address the needs of security professionals in a diverse range of applications and environments,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager of the Imaging Technologies and Communications Group at Canon U.S.A.

All four of Canon’s Full HD IP Security cameras are designed to capture high-resolution detail and color vital for obtaining crucial visual information for security purposes. Markets for these cameras include financial institutions, industrial plants and utilities, military and government agencies, airports and transportation centers, schools, retail establishments, and casinos. The advanced Canon DIGIC DV III image processor built into these IP security cameras optimizes image quality, providing auto gain control, which limits the amount of gain added to the image to reduce “noise,” the company described.

The new DIGIC NET II network video processor includes a multi-codec function for the simultaneous transmission of video in both H.264 and M-JPEG up to 30 frames per second. The Canon DIGIC NET II’s H.264 codec features an adjustable i-frame interval to optimize bandwidth and video-storage space. M-JPEG and H.264 can be output in multiple resolutions: 1920 x 1080, 960 x 540, and 480 x 270. The DIGIC NET II network video processor is also utilized for the cameras’ Smart Shade Control feature, which selectively brightens dark areas while maintaining accurate exposure of bright areas in high-contrast scenes.

The cameras also feature two-way audio connectors for bi-directional sound communication, built-in management tools, and a Web viewer function for remote video monitoring by authorized users on supported Web browsers. The cameras ship with RM-Lite 2.0, Canon’s free network video and recording software for up to four cameras.

The Canon Full HD IP Security cameras are designed to facilitate convenient installation. All four cameras can be powered with either 24VAC, 12VDC, or PoE (IEEE 802.3af conformant).
