Canon U.S.A. introduced its first 1.3-megapixel IP security cameras, all three of which conform to the widely accepted Open Network Video Interface Forum network-interoperability standard. The new products include: the VB-M40 pan/tilt/zoom network camera with a 20X Genuine Canon zoom lens; the VB-M600VE fixed vandal-resistant IP66- rated outdoor network dome camera; and the VB-M600D fixed network dome camera. The VB-M600VE and VB-M600D models include a built-in motor that allows for changing the pan/tilt/rotation angle of both of these fixed cameras as well as their lens zoom and focus positions after installation. This can be done from dedicated PC software without removing the dome cover, which is an industry first and a key installation advantage. The VB-M40 PTZ camera is expected to ship in early May while the VB-M600VE and VB-M600D models are expected to ship in July. Price: $1,059 (VB-M600D), $1,299 (VB-M600VE ), and $1,979 (VB-M40).
