Features

The network camera offers seamless pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) control provided by its 360° endless panning and 180° tilting capability. Full coverage with no blind spots is made possible by the ability to continuously pan in either direction without stopping combined with the flexible movement of 180° tilting and auto flipping. Continuous tracking provides broad surveillance and eliminates concern that a subject may move outside of the viewing range of the camera. The camera's video display and coordinate information can be rotated 180° to swiftly change from forward views to rear views with virtually no camera misalignment. The preset function allows for patrol route setup that greatly reduces the work involved in control operations and adjustments. Moreover, security personnel are able to respond to situations more quickly due to Canon's highly accurate and sensitive 450°/second pan/tilt mechanism that allows fast movement between positions.

Fast and Precise Pan / Tilt Mechanism allows for 450°/second panning and tilting speeds when moving between presets. This enables video of the desired areas to be taken with as little delay as possible which can allow security personnel to more rapidly respond to situations.

This camera is equipped with a motorized pan/tilt function and a 30x Optical Zoom Lens for accurate subject tracking and zooming in on a subject while retaining high image quality. The capability to save up to 256 preset pan/tilt/zoom positions, which can then be later recalled, helps eliminate the time required to move between positions.

The power of Canon's 30x optical zoom lens provides a high level of magnification and clear, sharp video for easier identification of subjects of interest even from long distances. It can be combined with an additional 20x digital zoom, which uses additional image processing to make the subject appear closer by enlarging pixel sizes.

The 1/3" high-sensitivity CMOS sensor processes and transmits 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) video helping to capture finer details, even in challenging low-light conditions, which is critical for subject identification and other important security matters.

This camera was built with two vandal resistant elements to help ensure safety from impact and tampering. The enclosure has an IK10 rating, which specifies withstanding up to 20 joules of impact resistance, roughly the equivalent of a 10 pound bowling ball being dropped on it from a distance of 15 inches. In addition, the enclosure is equipped with tamper-resistant screws to help prevent entry into and removal of the unit.

An IP66 Rating means that the unit is both water resistant to powerful streams of water and dust tight, thus allowing this camera to be installed outdoors without the need for any additional protective equipment. (Not appropriate for underwater submersion).

256 Preset Positions with 5 Preset Tour Routes allow users to automate camera movement to different areas of interest at different times of the day in order to cover more area with a single camera. This model will support creation of up to 256 preset camera positions and scheduling of up to 5 preset tour routes*.

The camera will internally save the desired pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) position of the camera so that the user can choose to easily return to that position at a later occasion without having to manually adjust the PTZ positions of the camera each time.

Also included in the presets are Focus Mode, Exposure, Slow Shutter, White Balance, Day/Night, and other settings in order to save the user from having to make frequent manual adjustments to these camera controls.

Preset tour routes program the camera to constantly move between different presets in sequence. The speed of movement between each preset can also be precisely configured to ensure proper monitoring of an entire area.

*If the durability limit for the pan/tilt operations is exceeded, the motors may need to be replaced

For maximized image quality, Canon has incorporated the same DIGIC DV III Image Processor used in many of its high-end DSLR cameras in order to reproduce video with life-like colors, tonal accuracy, smooth gradation and reduced noise. Unlike other cameras that rely on a shared processor for image quality and compression, Canon network cameras are engineered with a DIGIC DV III Image Processor solely dedicated to maximizing image quality.

Canon's DIGIC DV III Image Processor is a high-speed engine with maximum processing power which helps to optimize overall video quality with:

  • Vivid, life-like color reproduction and image clarity
  • Rich, smooth gradations
  • Drastically reduced image noise

DIGIC NET II Processor is a powerful and efficient compression, encryption, and transmission processor that gives Canon Network Cameras the ability to simultaneously deliver full HD (1920 x 1080) video at 30 frames per second in both M-JPEG and H.264 codecs. Users have the flexibility of streaming multiple resolutions of M-JPEG and H.264, all while minimizing power consumption. In situations where remote cameras are using cellular data, users can potentially realize substantial savings in data charges.

This camera is NEMA 250 Type 4x certified which specifies resistance to frost and corrosion. This certification gives the installer peace of mind when mounting this camera in locations, such as ports and other areas near salt water, that are prone to frost and/or corrosion.

In the event of an intruder or irregular occurrence within the field of view, this speed dome network camera has the ability to automatically trigger for recording, follow the subject, and/or alert authorities. Once the Auto Zoom function of the Auto Tracking feature is enabled, the camera automatically zooms into the subject being tracked and can self-regulate the panning and tilting in order to keep the subject centered on the display screen as that subject moves*. This function is ideal for automated, unmanned monitoring of large areas that normally do not see movement, or during off hours in areas where movement is not expected but must be monitored for suspicious activity and intruders.

* Accuracy of tracking is not guaranteed as there are situations that may affect reliability such as objects moving in opposite directions, poor lighting conditions, etc.

The Enhanced Digital Zoom function can be used to further zoom-in on the subject(s) without loss of video quality when optical zoom is not enough. With this feature, the camera streams a lower resolution digital crop of the original video, as opposed to digital zoom which manipulates the image to make the subject appear larger by increasing pixel sizes and reducing image quality. Enhanced Digital Zoom typically produces a higher-quality image than digital zoom while significantly lowering the amount of bandwidth and storage space needed to transmit and retain the video.

Image Stabilization is an optional feature that can be used to help reduce motion blur caused by wind or mechanical vibration. The camera calculates the amount of vibration being experienced both horizontally and vertically and stabilizes the image by digitally removing pixels, which results in capturing video with minimized motion blurring.

Area-Specific Data Size Reduction (ADSR) is an optional function that allows users to reduce bandwidth consumption and video storage space requirements, thus lessening the need for expensive networking and storage equipment. The reduction in bandwidth and storage is achieved by defining up to eight specific areas in the camera's field of view which are most critical and where high video quality must be maintained, while video quality in the rest of the camera's field of view is lowered.

Motion Adaptive Noise Reduction helps reduce overall bandwidth consumption and lower the costs associated with transmitting data, while providing clean images in low light areas where motion is detected. Areas without motion receive added noise reduction thus minimizing bandwidth consumption, while areas with motion receive a smaller amount of noise reduction resulting in greater visual clarity for optimized monitoring and surveillance.

This network camera is equipped with an impressive selection of video capture settings that can be tailored to better accommodate environmental lighting changes, such as shifts in sunlight direction and during the transitions between day and night. Users are able to define presets that include settings such as shutter speed, gain, aperture, white balance, day/night mode and more in addition to the camera's pan/tilt/zoom position. These presets can be recalled on a schedule or can tie-in with the camera's automatic day/night switch options to help ensure high-quality video even in situations with varying ambient light conditions.

A host of optional on-board image optimization features were designed to maximize video image quality.


Haze Compensation automatically heightens contrast to display a clear image despite the presence of haze, fog or smog.


Smart Shade Control analyzes and selectively adjusts the exposure in overexposed and darkened areas.


Auto Gain Control Limit gives the user full control over the amount of digital gain applied when using auto exposure in low-light scenarios.


White Balance settings can be adjusted in order to compensate for different types of lighting to ensure color-accurate images.

A host of intelligent On-board Video Analytics have been built into the camera to aid in analyzing video content for the purposes of identifying and alerting potentially critical situations. For maximum flexibility, detection characteristics (sensitivity, area and duration) can be finely tuned by users to allow for precise event detection by the camera, while notification tools can alert the correct parties to help expedite response time. In addition, costly storage space can be saved by using these On-board Video Analytics as triggers to start recording so that the camera does not have to continuously record during all hours of the day.

Installers can also quickly configure their camera at the installation site and remotely control it.

The Built-in SD Card Slot, which supports SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards, provides temporary secondary storage for video data and camera logs. In addition, the memory card recording can be used in remote deployments to reduce the amount of additional hardware needed to store video.

Live images and H.264 video can be saved to the memory card during network outages, event triggers, at scheduled times and manually via the Camera Viewer. When issues occur, system logs can also be created on the memory card for future troubleshooting.

The Recorded Video Utility allows for searching, downloading and viewing the recorded video and the Canon Camera Management Tool allows for backing up and restoring camera settings to/from the memory card.

An optional "Auto Video Delete" feature allows the user to define a retention period for recorded videos (up to 90 days).

The Low Power Consumption offered by this camera helps reduce the potential occurrence of overheating and failure. In addition, overall system power requirements are lessened, potentially giving the user the ability to save on energy, back-end equipment and hardware costs while lowering environmental impact.

The network camera accepts 24 V AC, 12 V DC, Power over Ethernet (PoE) and PoE+ offering flexibility when it comes to utilizing power sources available at the installation location.

This network camera can be installed in environments where a high level of network security is of extreme importance. It supports IEEE802.1X authentication, which provides additional network security with port-based access control that helps ensure only authorized client devices are connected to the network. In addition, IPSec is used to encrypt all packets of IP data sent over the network and SSL/TLS is used to safeguard data by encrypting sensitive information transmitted between a client and an application.
