VB-C500D

Support Network Cameras

Features

Genuine Canon optics combined with the high-sensitivity CCD provides optimal contrast, and the primary-color CCD also delivers excellent colors and tonal quality, even in low light.
Moving subjects can be clearly seen with minimal noise in low light conditions. The primary-color CCD delivers excellent colors and tonal quality suited to the brightness of the environment.
Simultaneous Data Distribution
The VB-C500D can simultaneously deliver both M-JPEG and MPEG-41 video in high quality VGA size (640 x 480) at the maximum frame rate of 30fps- with no loss in frame rate, unlike many competing models. The high image quality of M-JPEG video is suited for live monitoring, while for recording MPEG-4 is ideal for recording due to its smaller file size and lighter network load. Furthermore, the camera supports IPsec and performs onboard data encryption without any loss in frame rate. Each camera offers support for up to 30 simultaneous clients (users accessing and viewing video images at the same time). Multi-Streaming
The VB-C500D can distribute M-JPEG images in three sizes simultaneously (640x480, 320x240, 160x120). The 160x120 size comes in handy for image upload mobile devices, the 320x240 size is useful when monitoring multiple cameras on a single screen, and 640x480 is ideal for saving when high image quality is desired.
Recorded Stream Functionality
In addition to basic live video streaming, the VB-C500D is able to stream recorded video. This feature is useful when recorded images are viewed after the fact (rather than live) and greatly minimizes the chance of dropped frames due to data transmission interruptions. If there is a break in data transmission, live frames from that period are typically not sent resulting in lost frames until the connection resumes. The VB-C500D's Recorded Stream Functionality enables the camera to retain and send the frames from that period to the recording server when the connection resumes. When playing back the recorded video, all frames are included, at the proper frame rate (up to 10fps).
The VB-C500D supports IEEE 802.3af compliant Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology, which allows the use of a single LAN cable to both power the camera and transfer video and audio data when connected to a PoE switch. Because a power cable is not required, the camera can be installed at sites without readily accessible AC outlets. And because PoE eliminates the cost of running expensive power cabling to the device, installation costs are kept to a minimum. There is no need for additional electrical constructions once you connect the camera to a PoE switch. In addition, the VB-C500D can be powered using an external power supply (AC24V / DC12V) using the optional AC adapter (PA-V17) and power interface cable (WP500-VB).
Seven Levels of Exposure Compensation
Automatic exposure compensation offers seven levels of correction. Compared to other cameras where only positive correction for backlit situations is available, the VB-C500D has negative correction for overly bright situations. You can set the white balance and the light source to match the installation site. Below is an example of positive correction. Shutter Priority Auto Exposure
The VB-C500D allows you to select a desired shutter speed, and the camera will set the matching aperture value for proper exposure. If you change the shutter speed or the light level changes, the camera adjusts the aperture accordingly. This is useful for fast-moving subjects such as cars in motion, where setting a fast shutter speed will ensure blur-free capture.
