Each camera features a Genuine Canon optical zoom lens and sophisticated Canon DIGIC NET image processor. These dedicated, proprietary components work together with a high-sensitivity CMOS sensor to enable the cameras to capture potentially crucial image detail in low-illumination environments down to at least .03 lux at f/1.6 and 1/8 sec. in color and at least .001 lux at f/1.6 and 1/8 sec. in black and white.
Sophisticated Canon image processing built into the VB-M40, VB-M600VE and VB-M600D IP security cameras also enables Smart Shade Control, which automatically adjusts the contrast between bright and dark areas of the image for optimum detail display as well as a special Night Mode for increased low-light sensitivity as compared with previous Canon IP security camera models.
Video data-streaming options for Canon’s new 1.3-Megapixel IP security cameras include simultaneous transmission of H.264 and Motion-JPEG in resolutions of 1280x960, 640x480, and 320x240. Motion-JPEG can also be streamed at 160x120. All four Motion-JPEG resolutions can be streamed simultaneously at frame rates up to 30 fps. Only one H.264 resolution can be streamed at a time. All three cameras also feature a built-in Web Viewer function for remote video monitoring by authorized users on any web browser, including “smartphone” web browsers or leading third-party applications. The cameras ship with RM Lite, Canon’s free network video and recording software for up to four cameras (RM Lite provides Motion-JPEG at 5fps).
