Canon VB-C500D Dome Camera Specifications
Ideal for all surveillance needs, the Canon VB-C500D features a 2.4x optical zoom and wide-angle varifocal lens to cover large areas. Its discreet design allows it to blend easily into any environment.
Wide angle varifocal lens
With an ultra-wide 82 ° field of view and 2.4x optical zoom, the VB-C500D is ideal for all surveillance needs. The wide lens makes it perfect for open spaces such as large offices, while the 2.4x zoom is useful for tight spaces such as hallways and ATM terminals.
Compact and discreet
The compact dome housing lets you monitor your subjects with complete discretion. The camera can be ceiling mounted, installed in an upright position, or even side mounted on a wall, to suit any environment.
MPEG-4 and Motion JPEG video
With support for MPEG-4 and Motion JPEG video formats, the VB-C500D can output high quality video with VGA (640 x 480) resolution up to 30 fps. The transmitted sequences can be distributed to an audience of up to 30 simultaneous clients (maximum 10 clients using MPEG-4).
Progressive scan CCD
For a sharper view of moving subjects, the progressive scan CCD image sensor minimizes the “comb” effect often seen in interlaced video. Combined with a real Canon lens, this ensures high quality images with low noise, even when there is a lot of movement in the scene.
Day and night surveillance
With the help of DIGIC NET processing, the VB-C500D can operate in a wide range of lighting conditions. Even in dimly lit areas, activity can still be monitored in color, down to a minimum illumination of 0.2 lux. In even darker situations, Digital Night Mode automatically switches from color video to monochrome and increases sensitivity to provide a clearer view. In broad daylight, when the background of a scene is so intense that it’s hard to see main subjects, Smart Shade Control allows you to adjust the contrast of darker areas, making them more visible while maintaining focus. brightness of brighter areas.
Power over Ethernet (PoE)
The VB-C500D can be powered by the same Ethernet cable that is used to transfer data, without the need for a separate power source. This allows the camera to be placed in many more locations, without the hassle and expense of a separate AC power supply.
The VB-C500D can transmit and receive full duplex audio from the camera site. A microphone and active speaker can be connected via an optional interface cable, so that live audio can be received from the camera or a warning message relayed to potential intruders.
