Class-leading compact size, light weight, Full HD video performance and outstanding analytical capabilities combine in the VB-S30D to help make it a perfect choice for a wide array of demanding surveillance situations.
Compact PTZ Camera with High Quality Full HD Video
The VB-S30D has been designed with components maximized to save space yet provide high quality video at the same time. To accomplish this, smaller circuit boards are combined with meticulous layout planning. The lens has been designed with aspherical elements and a high refractive index. This allows for a much more compact lens assembly as well as superb image capture capability, so the Full HD Video is clear and crisp. The VB-S30D is smaller and lighter than many other cameras of its type, increasing the options available when mounting in tight spaces. It is even light enough to allow installation without hardware.
Genuine Canon 77.7deg. Angle of View 3.5x Optical Zoom F1.4 Lens
Thanks to the impressive 77.5deg. viewing angle and 3.5x optical zoom, this lens delivers excellent image quality while possessing the smallest form factor in its class, all in a compact size. Frequently, challenging low-light situations are found in surveillance locations. The ability of a security camera to capture the highest quality video possible in such conditions is very important. The VB-S30D combines a high sensitivity sensor, bright lens, enhanced noise reduction and video quality optimization to deliver Full HD video with low-light performance at the top of the compact HD class in Canon testing.
Ease in system integration is important to ensure that users can create a network which best meets their specific requirements. The VB-S30D makes this possible with ONVIF version 2.2 protocol compatibility, including the Profile S standard which includes greater interoperability than found in previous network cameras. It is simpler to integrate the VB-S30D with other ONVIF compliant 3rd party products and it is backwards compatible with earlier versions of the ONVIF protocol.
2.1 Megapixel CMOS Sensor
The Megapixel CMOS Sensor of the VB-S30D ensures maximum image quality, a hallmark of Canon products. Its approximately 2.1 million pixels deliver incredibly sharp, high resolution video, with detail that ensures clearer, more effective video monitoring.
DIGIC DV III
The VB-S30D has at its core Canon's powerful and highly regarded DIGIC DV III Image Processor. It's known for providing superior image quality through more life-like colors, tonal accuracy and reduced noise. This comes with the additional benefit of low power consumption.
DIGIC NET II
Working in tandem with DIGIC DV III is DIGIC NET II. It is a sophisticated, efficient compression, encryption and transmission processor, which allows high quality Full HD (1920 x 1080) video at 30fps in both MJPEG and high quality, low bandwidth H.264 Codec. Users have the flexibility of multiple sizes of MJPEG streaming from which to choose and the VB-S30D will also allow 2 different sizes of H.264 which can be streamed simultaneously.
The H.264 Codec has adjustable I-frames and, by combining both high quality video and high compression rates, it gives the user the considerable benefits of low bandwidth utilization and low disk space usage with video of the quality demanded.
IEEE802.1x Client Authentication
The IEEE802.1x Client Authentication Support of the VB-S30D helps to enhance the security of the user's network with port based access control. It is possible for the camera to be installed in the most sensitive high security areas, as the Client Authentication Support ensures that only client authorized devices are connected to the network.
With the HTTP over SSL (HTTPS) support of the VB-S30D, both self-signed and Certificate Authority issued certificates can be recognized in order to ensure that communication between the camera and the client is secure, preserving the integrity of your data.
Auto IP Feature
The VB-S30D will assign itself a private IP address on startup. Designed for small implementations or demonstrations, this will allow for quick setup and viewing immediately on installation without the need to configure each camera's IP address individually.
On-board Video Analytics
The capability of the VB-S30D is greatly enhanced by the range of Video Analytics available to the user. They include Moving Object Detection, Removed Object Detection, Abandoned Object Detection, Sound Level Detection, Camera Tampering Detection, Passing Detection. In each of these analytics, the user can customize the behavior of the VB-S30D by precisely tuning the camera's event detection triggers. These include the detection area, sensitivity and duration. When an event occurs, advanced event notification tools can alert the selected personnel, maximizing response time. Now users will also have a Quick Setting in the Removed Object Detection analytic, which when triggered, rapidly identifies objects in the camera's field of view and places a visual 'box' around the object automatically. This can significantly reduce the time required to configure and identify the location of removed objects.
Scheduled Preset Tours
Another customization offering of the VB-S30D is the Preset Setting Tool. This allows the scheduling of start and stop times of preset tours, in which the camera moves to configured digital preset locations at the user's specifically desired time periods. Together with the available range of analytics, such tours can be a highly precise way to monitor specific areas at times of peak risk.
Digital & Viewer PTZ
With the VB-S30D's ability to allow the user to digitally pan, tilt and zoom in the incoming video stream, details in the camera's field of view can be investigated without the need to physically reposition the camera.
Scheduled Custom Video Settings
For maximum user flexibility in tailoring the settings of the video capture, the VB-S30D allows for customization of the video settings when switching from day to night mode, as well as setting a daily schedule. These settings can be pre-programmed to ensure that the image quality is optimized throughout the day for ambient light conditions.
Flexibility in Video Size Choices
Flexibility is a hallmark of the VB-S30D and that extends to choices in the size of live and recorded video streams to select those best suited to their specific requirements. The user may choose between the 16:9 sizes of Full HD and HD video sizes such as 720p as well as additional 4:3 aspect ratio video sizes.
The VB-S30D supports an on-screen display which can be customized to contain time & date and also has a text field in which the camera location can be identified for easier analysis.
Built-in microSD Card Slot
Live images and H.264 video can be saved to a memory card with the VB-S30D's built-in microSD Memory Card slot. The use of microSD, microSDHC and microSDXC cards allows the user to save events which occurred during live network outages, event triggers and scheduled times, as well as events that were manually recorded, for future review and analysis.
Admin Viewer H.264 Support
The user can view high quality, low bandwidth video directly from the webpage of the VB-S30D without installing any software.
