Canon launches two new network cameras with outstanding low light performance

17 Mar 2016

Canon Europe, world leader in imaging solutions, today announces the launch of two new low light network security cameras. Both the indoor pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ); VB-M50B, and indoor fixed dome; VB-H651V, include new features that help to ensure high quality images, even in challenging low light conditions. These new cameras are suited for a range of scenarios requiring round-the-clock surveillance, including critical infrastructure facilities, retail, commercial buildings and urban surveillance.

Both models include a new graphical user interface (GUI) and dedicated embedded Mobile Viewer to support multiple browsers and mobile devices, designed to offer installers and end-users improved compatibility and manageability.

Unparalleled low light imaging

The new VB-M50B high-sensitivity 1.3MP PTZ network camera demonstrates outstanding low light performance, even at 5x optical zoom. The large aperture, which lets increased amounts of light enter the camera, ensures bright images even at high magnification.

With a high-sensitivity sensor and high-performance image processor, the VB-M50B can produce images of a subject’s face with recognisable colour from 90 metres away in ambient light levels equivalent to moonlight (0.08 lux). This makes the camera ideal for situations requiring 24-hour surveillance, including covert intelligence and evidence gathering such as law enforcement and urban surveillance.

The VB-M50B also includes Canon’s new Clear IR Mode, allowing the camera to be used during day or night to produce high definition monochrome images. This creates clearer images with greater definition and detail than in colour, particularly at distance, and also allows the camera to reduce distortion from heat shimmer, suitable for applications requiring longer range surveillance in difficult conditions.

Outstanding image quality

The VB-H651V offers Full HD resolution and wide angle of view up of to 122.1⁰. As a result, the camera is capable of creating crisp, defined images of a large coverage area, ideal for surveillance applications requiring higher image quality for functions like facial recognition or analytics such as in retail, education, banking and commercial spaces.

Both models also feature Motion Adaptive Noise Reduction, a new Canon technology which senses moving objects and decreases noise reduction to improve performance in low light conditions. By dynamically adjusting noise reduction in real time depending on the scenario and requirements, the technology ensures that captured images are of the best possible quality for effective threat detection and identification.

Julian Rutland, European NVS Marketing Director, Canon Europe, says: “There is a growing need for high-performance video surveillance systems capable of recording quality images both at night and during the day, making low light technology more important than ever. Our new cameras are a fantastic addition to our existing range and offer integrators and installers the performance, durability and quality expected from the Canon brand.”

Technical specifications include:

·         The VB-M50B features an aperture of F/1.8 at the wide-angle end to F/2.4 at the telephoto end with a focal length of 600mm (35mm film equivalent). Images are captured at a resolution of 1.3MP. The camera can record images in colour down to 0.04 lux and, in monochrome, provide images with a minimum subject illumination of 0.002 lux. The VB-M50B also incorporates aspherical and UD (Ultra Low Dispersion) lens elements to reduce the risk of chromatic aberrations and keep images focused and crisp

·         The VB-H651V includes a 2.1MP Full HD resolution 1/3” CMOS Sensor and F/1.2(W) – F/1.8(T) 2.4x optical zoom lens.  It can image in colour at light levels down to 0.035 lux, and in monochrome to 0.002 lux

Both new cameras are compatible with ONVIF Profiles S and G.

These devices will be available from 16th May 2016. Customers, VMS partners and system integrators can find out more information about Canon’s network camera product range here:
