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-S800D 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.
Power over Ethernet
A key component in the compact size of the VB-S800D is the sole use of Power over Ethernet as the method of power, with a maximum usage of 4.1 watts.
Genuine Canon 95deg. Angle of View Lens
Canon's world-wide fame in optical technology means that this same expertise is seen in the superb lens fitted to the VB-S800D. In addition to a wide 95deg. viewing angle, the UD, aspherical elements and high refractive index mean this lens delivers excellent image quality while at the same time possessing the smallest form factor in its class, all in a compact size. Another benefit this lens brings to the user is the mitigation of environmentally caused focus shift. Wide temperature ranges to which the camera may be exposed can result in thermal expansion of the lens barrel. This affects the lens' refractive index, causing focus shift. This problem is largely eliminated in the VB-S800D.
Class Leading Low-Light Performance
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-S800D 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.
The VB-S800D 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-S800D 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-S800D 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-S800D 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-S800D 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.
The IEEE802.1x Client Authentication Support of the VB-S800D helps to enhance the security of the user's network with port based access control.
