Canon announced the new VB-C500D fixed mini-dome network camera, which features a stylish modern design, a range of advanced features, and outstanding image quality—making it a cost-effective means of capturing high-quality video for remote monitoring over IP. The VB-C500D is ideally suited for any location where a fixed security camera is required, including reception areas and convenience stores, tight spaces such as elevator/ATM lobbies, and upscale environments such as hotels and condominiums where the camera needs to complement the interior design. Central to the VB-C500D’s design are the camera’s genuine Canon optics and powerful DIGIC NET processor. The camera features an 82-degree wide-angle lens with 2.4X optical zoom (manual) and 4X digital zoom. When viewing moving objects, images remain clear thanks to a high-sensitivity progressive-scan CCD. The VB-C500D includes an advanced Canon image processor that handles the white-balance, exposure-compensation, shutter-speed, and color-correction functions to ensure the camera maintains the highest image quality.
