Canon launches new network cameras

London, UK

Canon Europe, has launched eight new 2MP network cameras.  Unveiled at Ifsec 2016, the new range includes an outdoor 360⁰ endless panning model with 30x optical zoom and fast autofocus, and two new fixed box “bullet” models with 20x optical zoom, a first for Canon.

All eight new models will be on display alongside the recently announced VB-H651V and Canon’s flagship low light network camera, the VB-M50B, capable of recording bright, clear images in low light conditions, particularly at the telephoto end.

Julian Rutland, EMEA Marketing Director, NVS, Canon Europe, says, “The security market is always diversifying and evolving, yet achieving high image quality, particularly in low light conditions, remains a key priority in the industry. Our new cameras are a potent addition to our existing range, with all of the new devices benefitting from updated technology and high quality lenses. They demonstrate the range and imaging excellence typical of Canon technology and offer integrators and installers the ability to provide bespoke solutions for their customers across a range of vertical industries.”

The new high-sensitivity 2MP CMOS sensor allows the cameras to capture full HD images, even in increasingly challenging low light conditions. This is essential for a range of security applications, from city surveillance to critical infrastructure, where accurately identifying the faces of individuals or details on a vehicle number plate can provide invaluable evidence.

The VB-R13VE, an outdoor vandal resistant 360⁰ PTZ camera, also incorporates a 30x optical zoom lens with a fast autofocus to keep images in pristine clarity. Coupled with an ultra-low dispersion lens, which prevents image distortion from aberrations in the glass, the camera is capable of providing crisp, clear images. This allows for precision imaging and effective colour accuracy that results in clear video ideal for critical infrastructure applications.

All of the cameras feature motion-adaptive noise reduction, a new Canon technology that automatically adjusts noise reduction upon detecting motion within the scene. By dynamically adjusting noise reduction in real time, depending on the scenario and requirements, motion-adaptive noise reduction reduces noise levels and respective video data size without a loss of quality.

A new graphical user interface (GUI) and dedicated embedded mobile viewer have been added to support multiple compatible browsers and mobile devices, designed to offer installers and end-users easy, wireless access to the cameras’ features and functionality, making setup easier.

All the new cameras are compatible with ONVIF Profiles S and G allowing for simple integration with the majority of VMS platforms, and the recording, searching and play-back of footage from the edge recording device.
