Canon expands its acclaimed line of Network Video Solutions products with the addition of the VB-C300 wide-angle pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) network camera, addressing the confined quarters and wiring limitations often faced by small businesses.
Offering the widest angle of view of any PTZ camera on the market, the new feature-packed VB-C300 PTZ camera, along with the introduction of version 1.3 of Canon’s versatile VK-64 / VK-16 network video recording software, are the company’s latest innovations for security and video-monitoring professionals needing to capture high-quality video and deliver it via a LAN or the Internet.
Offering a wide 70˚ horizontal angle of view, the VB-C300 PTZ camera pans bidirectionally at ± 170˚ to deliver a total viewing angle that exceeds 360˚. This feature makes the VB-C300 PTZ camera well-suited to tight, indoor spaces. The camera comes equipped with a high-sensitivity progressive-scan 310,000-effective pixel CCD that helps deliver crisp, well-defined images of even rapidly moving objects, as well as powerful low-light (1 lux at 1/30 shutter speed) performance. In addition, an Automatic Day and Night Mode switches from color video to light-sensitive black and white video, depending on available illumination.
