Features of the VB101
Features of the VB101
The VB101 digitalizes images captured from a video camera, allowing easy distribution of these images
over the Internet or an intranet. The person receiving the images can use the Canon WebView Livescope
software (Java version viewer and Helper version viewer) to view the images. If a Canon Communication
camera is used, a wide range of additional functions are also available, including remote camera control
and using a Web page for everything from transmitting video information to video image monitoring.
Furthermore, by using this system together with the optional* WebView Livescope MV monitoring viewer, you
can conduct remote monitoring from multiple locations. For more information on how to use the WebView
viewer software and the WebView Livescope MV software, refer to the respective software manuals.
*VB-101 can also be used in VIEW-Windows.
*VIEW-Windows is a product designed for use within Japan.
■High-quality images with a high frame rate
■Up to 4 cameras connected
Up to 4 video cameras can be connected to the VB101 and up to two cameras can be selected for
camera control. Cameras can be switched by the viewer and the images from the selected
camera are displayed. Two RCA sockets are provided as the input interface for video cameras
and 2 BNC sockets are provided for cameras commonly used for monitoring. The user can
specify which camera connected to which socket is to be controlled.
■Versatile camera control
If a Canon Communication camera is used, the client can control the angle (pan and tilt) and the
zoom ratio of cameras installed in remote locations just as if he or she was actually there. The
client can also impose operating limits by specifying camera angles that are not to be shown and
restricting the available zoom settings.
By accessing a Setup Management page provided on the Web, you can use the Web browser on
your PC to set up and manage the system from a remote location without ever visiting the place
where the system is actually installed. You can also use the special setup program provided to
specify the initial IP address. IP addresses can be automatically specified in network
environments where Bootp can be used.
1
■Log functions
You can use the logging functions to save log information on events such as faults and access
statuses to a file and then send that information to a specific e-mail address.
Before Using the VB101
The VB101 is capable of image capture at speed of up to 30 fps. Image compression is performed
using Motion-JPEG. Because the sender can control the image quality and capture rate, the
settings can be optimized for the network environment. The image quality can be set on a scale
from 1 to 99, and the capture rate can be set to speeds between 0.1 and 30 fps.
■Simple set up and management
■Built-in Web server and FTP server
As well as transmitting video images, the VB101 also features built-in Web server functions for
Web pages. By making Web page data to an optional flash memory card, the VB101 can be
also used to transmit data and video images across the Web. Moreover, because the VB101
has a built-in FTP server, it is also possible to download Web pages remotely.
■Fully expandable
The VB101 is provided with 2 card slots which you can use to add a modem, or a flash memory
as required.
■Concurrent video is distributed up to 20 clients
Up to 20 clients can view video at the same time from a single VB101. Also, the number of
concurrent accesses can be specified on the camera server to suit the available network
bandwidth.
■Preset function for camera positions
By registering camera angles specified beforehand, the user can display a scene requested by a
client simply by selecting the specified preset information.
■New VC-C4/VC-C4R Cameras supported
The VB101 can be used with the latest Canon Communication Camera VC-C4/
VC-C4R (support for reverse suspended installation). This allows the user to
control VC-C4/VC-C4R cameras, which provide improved performance and
functionality, including reverse suspended installation and a larger control
range than the VC-C3 and VC-C1 MK II.
■Internet/intranet compatibility
12
The VB101 software is compatible with TCP/IP and HTTP, the standard Internet protocols, allowing
video image transmission and remote camera control to be performed easily from a Web browser.
The Ethernet interface supports 10 Mbps/100 Mbps autosensing (or auto detection), and a PC card
modem can be used to access public switched telephone networks.
■Camera control rights to coordinate camera control contention
The introduction of control rights means that contention can be prevented when multiple video
receivers are controlling the camera at the same time. The default time for which clients receiving
images have exclusive control of the camera is 20 seconds in the initial factory settings. (This
setting can be changed from the server.)
■More powerful security functions
The destinations for video transmissions can be restricted based on IP addresses and passwords.
■Picture recording function using schedule management and cooperation with external devices
The VB101 is provided with picture recording and digital output functions controlled by preset
schedules, along with on/off functions that are triggered by digital input from connected devices.
These features expand the range of system applications still further.

Tip
● Log files will be created in the /card/logs directory (a flash card is required to save log messages in
a file). The most recent log file will be saved as "log". The log file size is specified in "Maximum log
file size" and if the log file exceeds the specified size, back-up files named "log.0..." are created.
● Only the number of back-up log files that are specified in "Maximum number of log files (N)" will
remain. These will be listed in the order, "log.0, log.1,..., log.N". For example, if the maximum number
of log files is set to 10, files named "log.0, log.1,..., log.9" will be created in the same directory. The
file named "log.0" is the most recent back-up file (the most recent log file is listed as "log").
●`Because log files will be overwritten in order after the number of files specified in "Maximum
number of log files" have been created, maintenance should be carried out periodically.

Creating Web Pages
This chapter describes how to use the VB101 to webcast
information.
Picture data can be transmitted in various ways, including
displaying video or still images and displaying multiple images on
a web page.
Web Pages for Video Transmission
Web Pages for Video Transmission
To transmit picture data by VB101, you create a dedicated web page. The viewers that can be used with
the VB101 are "Java Viewer (with or without camera control function)" and "Helper Viewer", and detailed

Viewer, it must be pre-installed on the client's computer. The features of the Helper Viewer are
described below.
Video display function
Must be pre-installed, but once installed, start-up time is quick and
operation is stable.
Camera control function
The Helper Viewer can use WebView-TCP protocol as well as WebViewHTTP protocol and can penetrate firewalls to access external sites.
Can be run as a stand-alone application.

As of Helper Viewer version 3.0 a panorama display function is provided.
However, the VB101 does not support shooting or transmission of panorama
images. Consequently, if the Panorama display button is clicked in Helper
Viewer version 3.0 or later, a blank Panorama window appears. On the
Panorama window, frames appear showing the camera position and field of

Tip
● Writing IP Addresses
Using the Web server functions built into the VB101, IP addresses can be
expressed as <_I_P_A_D_D_R_> (all upper-case characters, including the angle
brackets) in the three file types used by the Web server in the VB101.
When only Ethernet is used, IP addresses can be specified directly. However,
when Ethernet and modems are used together, IP addresses must always be
written using the <_I_P_A_D_D_R_> convention.
If the address is specified in this way, it can be converted correctly and sent as a
file to the respective client regardless of whether the system was accessed from
an Ethernet network or via PPP (modem).
This function is valid when the VB101 is used jointly as both Web server and
camera server and cannot be used to specify IP addresses for other VB101s.
