Set the camera’s exposure mode and shutter speed.
AE Mode
Auto
“Auto” is used to automatically control the exposure.
Flickerless
“Flickerless” is used to reduce flicker in video caused by some factors, like fluorescent lamps. The
shutter speed is automatically adjusted according to the brightness of the shooting environment.
Shutter-priority AE
“Shutter-priority AE” is used when specifying the shutter speed.
Slow Shutter
Slow Shutter can be set only when “AE Mode” is set to “Auto”.
Select the slowest shutter speed, which is used to capture video in lower light conditions in
the “Auto” mode. You can select the speed from “Disable”, “1/15” and “1/8”. Moving subjects
may be blurred when captured in low light conditions, so it is important to select the suitable
mode according to the shooting condition.
Shutter Speed
Shutter Speed can be set only when “AE Mode” is set to “Shutter-Speed Priority AE”.
You can choose from 12 levels of shutter speed between “1/8” and “1/8000”. It is recommended
to specify faster speed when capturing moving subjects, so that the image blur can be reduced.
2 Focus Mode
Set the camera’s focus mode.
Auto
“Auto” is used to automatically obtain correct focus. Normally, select “Auto”.
Fixed at infinity
The focus is fixed at a point of infinity.
Note
● When monitoring subjects through a glass window, the camera may focus on the glass
surface if there is dust or drop of water on it. So, in such situation, be sure to place the
camera at a close distance from the window, possibly less than 30 cm.
● The above item 1 and 2 are the initial values used at camera startup. The new settings
will be applied when the camera is turned on again or the camera is rebooted.
Use the “Control for Admin” panel of VB-C60 viewer to configure the settings used in the
actual operating environment (➞ P.3-21).
● When capturing subjects like traffic lights and electronic signboards, the captured
video may be blinking. It may be reduced by changing the exposure mode to “Auto
(Shutter-priority AE)” and choosing a shutter speed of 1/100 or slower.

Set User Access Privileges (Access Control)
Tip
The Host Restriction function is to restrict hosts, in which viewers and other client
applications are running. Access restriction is available with a list including single or
multiple entries, described in the following format.
Listing Format
“ ! ” addr “ -addr2 ”
● “addr” is written in the standard IP address format.
● Because the IP addresses in “addr” and “addr2” define the range of IP addresses,
if an IP address A is higher than “addr” and lower than “addr2”, the IP address A is
included in the addr-addr2 range. The addr2 parameter can be omitted, in which
case it is taken to be the same value as addr.
● If the entry begins with “!”, then access will be denied. If not, access will be authorized.
● If an address of host corresponds to more than one entry, the settings for the first
corresponding entry from the top of the Host List are used for determining whether
access is authorized or restricted. Therefore, note that in the examples 3 to 5
given below the entry of addresses to be authorized must be specified before the
addresses to be restricted.
● Redundant or contradictory entries included in the list are automatically deleted.
● If the given address does not belong to any of the entries, access is authorized.
Example 1: To prohibit access from a host
!172.20.0.10
Access from the host with an IP address of 172.20.0.10 is prohibited.
Example 2: To prohibit access from hosts in a given address range
!172.20.0.0-172.20.0.20
Access from hosts with IP addresses from 172.20.0.0 to 172.20.0.20 is prohibited.
Example 3: To authorize access from hosts in a given address range while
prohibiting access from other hosts
172.20.0.10-172.20.0.12
!0.0.0.0-255.255.255.0
Access is only authorized from hosts with IP addresses from 172.20.0.10 to
172.20.0.12 is prohibited.
Example 4: To prohibit access from hosts in a given address range while
permitting access from one host within that range
172.20.0.10
!172.20.0.0-172.20.0.20
Access from hosts with IP addresses from 172.20.0.0 to 172.20.0.20 is prohibited,
except for the host at 172.20.0.10, from which access is permitted.
Example 5: To prohibit access from hosts in a given address range while

Motion Detection Setting Tool
This tool is to set up motion detection function, which uploads images, notifies to viewers and logs
events, when the captured object moves, causing a change to occur in the video image. You can
set the position and size of motion detection areas, and the conditions to judge the timing of
motion detection with viewing the video from the camera.
VBAdmin Tools
Setting Motion Detection easily
using Motion Detection Setting
tool
The levels of motion detection determine how great the variation must be (sensitivity), how large
the changed area must be as a proportion of the whole detection area (proportion), and how long
the variation must continue (duration) before it is recognized as motion and the specified action is
performed.
Notes on Using This Function
Note
The Motion Detection function is not suitable for conditions where high reliability is
required. It is not recommend using this function in situations where high reliability is
required, such as for monitoring purposes. Canon accepts no liability whatsoever for
faults, etc. resulting from the use of the Motion Detection.

If the ratio of the selected detection area (blue solid line frame) to the area where the
VB-C60 detects motion (displayed in a red or yellow rectangle) exceeds the value set here,
the status of the VB-C60 becomes “Detected” (→ P.2-34). However, even when the set
ratio is exceeded the value set in Size, the “Detected” status does not effective if the duration
set in “Duration” is not reached. Drag the slide bar to set the size in the range of 0-100%.
2-31
Motion Detection Setting Tool
7Duration
When changes in the video image in the detection area meet the conditions set in 3
“Sensitivity” and 6 “Size” and continue for the value set in “Duration”, the status of the
VB-C60 becomes “Detected”.
“Duration” is normally fixed at “0.2”. However, the “Details” check box is checked, you can
set the value by directly entering the value or dragging the slide bar in the range of 0-5
seconds.
8Details
When the checkbox is checked, you can set the values for “Sensitivity”, “Size” and “Duration”
by entering numeric values. When unchecked, “Duration (sec.)” is fixed at “0.2”.
Tip
● Even if changes occur in the video image in the detection area during viewing the
viewer, the VB-C60 does not recognize it as “motion” if the sensitivity is set to a low
level. In addition, even when you increase the sensitivity, unless the size of the area
where a motion is detected within the area frame and the duration of the motion
meet the set values, the status of the VB-C60 does not become “Detected”.
● You can also select the detection area to set by clicking it in the viewer. The selected
detection area frame is displayed in a blue solid line frame.
● When Selected area is set to “Not specified”, the detection statuses of all of the detection
areas you have created can be displayed simultaneously. Clicking on a location for
which no area frame is set in the viewer can display them in the same manner.
4. Check the motion detection status of the camera
Check “Display motion detection status of the camera” to confirm the status of the motion
detection with the settings you have configured. The motion detection status is displayed
using one of the following icons.
You cannot save the settings with “Display motion detection status of the camera” checked.
Clear the check to save the settings.
“Detection disabled”
“Detected”
“Not detected”
Note
● Because the video distribution frame rate may be lowered when the data is sent
via a proxy server, connection without using a proxy server is recommended while
setting the motion detection.
● It is recommended that the detection sensitivity is set under condition close to
actual operation condition as much as possible.
2-32
Motion Detection Setting Tool
Tip
● The “Motion detected (peak block display)” and “Display motion detection status of
the camera” displays in this tool, and the actual detection status of the VB-C60

● When the Motion Detection function of the VB-C60 is enabled, the processing load
on the VB-C60 becomes high, and therefore the video distribution frame rate may
decrease compared to when it is disabled.
● Select “Edit” → “Copy sensitivity settings” from the menu bar to copy setting values
of Sensitivity, Size, and Duration (sec.) of each detection area, which is checked
([1]~[4]) at that point. After that, check other area ([1]~[4]), then select “Edit” →

When a change in the video meets the conditions set
in both “Size” and “Duration” and the status of the
camera becomes “Detected”, a red peak block
appears. You need to set the detection sensitivity with
checking the level of motion at wihich level a peak
block appears.

It is effective to adjust the setting values with viewing the actual motion in the viewer
when setting the sensitivity on which the status of the VB-C60 becomes “Detected”.
In the VB-C60, you can set the motion detection sensitivity with viewing the video
recorded in the “Live” tab (→ P.2-28), so you do not need to repeatedly make motions

Chapter
VB-C60 Viewer
This chapter describes how to use the VB-C60 viewer with
which you can access a camera via a Web browser to view
live videos, control the pan, tilt and zoom, exposure mode,
night mode, white balance, focus, smart shade control, and
other functions.
VB-C60 Viewer Overview
The VB-C60 viewer is a viewer used to access network camera VB-C60 via a Web browser and to
control the camera, including image display and pan/tilt/zoom controls.
The VB-C60 viewer includes 2 viewers: Admin viewer and VB viewer.
VB-C60 Viewer
Admin Viewer
Note
VB Viewer
Use the VK-Lite viewer to view MPEG-4 video from the camera.
The VB-C60 viewer can display JPEG video only.
Major Differences between Admin Viewer and VB Viewer
●Operational Items
Admin Viewer : In addition to the basic camera controls including video display, pan/tilt/zoom
control, you can use administrative control functions such as focus, exposure
and white balance.
VB Viewer
: Available operations are limited to the basic camera controls such as video
display and pan/tilt/zoom control.
●Access Control
Admin Viewer : Users with the “Privileged Camera Control” can use this viewer.
Password authentication is required.
For Authorized users, the Administrator must provide the “Privileged Camera
Control” in advance (➞ P.1-36).
VB Viewer
: Users with the “Camera Control” can use this viewer.
Depending on the settings, the password authentication requirement can be
changed, and camera’s pan/tilt/zoom control can be restricted.

Guest users
Camera Control
(can be changed) (can be changed) (can be changed)
*can be changed: The administrator can change the privileges of Authorized users and Guest users.
There are four types of privileges that can be set for users: Privileged Camera Control, Camera
Control, Image Distribution and Audio Distribution.
The “Privileged Camera Control” is required to use the Admin viewer.
The “Image Distribution” privilege is required to view video using the VB viewer. The “Camera
Control” privilege is additionally required to control the camera using the VB viewer.
The “Audio Distribution” privilege is required to receive audio using the Admin viewer or VB viewer.
Administrator
Users with all privileges. The user name is fixed to “root”.
The Admin viewer can be started from the “Admin Viewer” link on the top page.
Authorized users
Authorized users can start the Admin viewer from the “Admin Viewer” link on the top page if the
user is provided with the “Privileged Camera Control”. If the “Privileged Camera Control” is
disabled, Authorized users cannot start up the Admin viewer, but can start up the VB viewer. If
all privileges are disabled, Authorized users cannot start up even the VB viewer.
Guest users
Guest users can control camera’s pan/tilt/zoom, backlight compensation, video display and
audio distribution only.
The VB viewer can be started from the “VB Viewer” link on the top page. The Administrator can
completely prohibit camera access from Guest users by disabling all privileges.
Note
● The Admin viewer started by the “Administrator” can take away the camera control
privilege from the Admin viewer started by an “Authorized user” any time. The
Administrator can keep the camera control privilege, but during that time, Authorized
users cannot obtain the camera control privilege. After viewing video, be sure to
close the viewer or click “Obtain/Release Camera Control” to release the camera
control privilege.
3-3
VB-C60 Viewer Overview
● While an Administrator is connecting to a camera, other Administrators cannot
connect to the same camera. On the other hand, multiple Admin viewers started
by “Authorized users” can connect to one camera at the same time. In that case,
the camera control privilege is always given to the last user.
Tip
● In the factory default settings, the “Privileged Camera Control” is given to “Authorized
users”, too.
● When Guest users’ privileges are all disabled, a User Authentication dialog box is
displayed at the startup of the VB viewer. Users can use the VB viewer as an
Authorized user or an Administrator, by starting up the VB viewer with entering the
user name and the password of the Authorized user or the Administrator.

Each privilege of authorized users is as follows:

Creating Web Pages for
Video Distribution
This chapter describes how to use the VB-C60 to webcast
information.
Image data can be distributed in various ways, including
displaying video or still images and displaying multiple
images on a Web page.
Web Pages for Video Distribution
To distribute image data using VB-C60, you need to create a dedicated Web page. The viewer that
can be used with VB-C60 is “VB-C60 Viewer”, which allows you to set detailed parameter settings.

If you select a link requesting video in step 1, a file that includes the IP address information for
the VB-C60 is sent from the Web server in step 2. If you are using the VB Viewer, the video is
distributed to the viewer PC from the VB-C60 in response to the request in step 3.
■ Example of a Web page for video distribution
(VB-C60’s built-in page)
The above page is built into VB-C60. It can be accessed from the URL below.

Web Pages for Video Distribution
Note
Tip
VB-C60 is equipped with a built-in Web server. If the content of the Web pages used
for distributing video is stored onto the built-in flash memory in VB-C60, the VB-C60
can be used both for distributing Web pages and video over the Web. Please refer to
P.4-6 for procedures on how to save Web page data.
You can use the Language setting function for the Browser to create a multi-lingual
Web site. For example, if you set the French-language top pages as Index-fr.html
and the English-language top page as Index.html and supply users with a URL address
terminates in slash, such as http://192.168.100.1/sample/, the server will transmit a
file corresponds with the language setting for the Browser. For further information on
the Language setting function for the Browser, refer to the Browser Help.

memory. Ensure that only the minimum amount of data required is stored in the
flash memory.
● Camera’s setting change may not be available if web pages’ data size is too large.
Make sure that the whole web page's data size is less than 3MB if you save the
data in the camera's flash memory. In that case, be sure to check the event log
after changing settings and check an error in saving setting values (S306, S307) is
not displayed. If the error was displayed, delete the web page data and then again
configure the settings. For details about the error messages, refer to P.5-11.

Distribute Still Images to a Mobile Phone
Overwrite Sample Pages
You can change screen displays and the content of operations by overwriting the HTML file under
the following path by accessing the flash memory in the VB-C60 via ftp.
Path to the Japanese version sample: /mnt_flash/www/html/sample/ja/mobile/
Path to the English version sample: /mnt_flash/www/html/sample/en/mobile/
<IMG SRC=“/-wvhttp-01-/image.cgi?v=jpg:160x120&pan=-17000&tilt=0&zoom=5580”
ALT=“position 1”><BR>
For example, to change the control position [1], overwrite the underlined value in “pos1.html”. See
the table below for details of the parameters of the image.cgi command.
Note
Before overwriting the sample files in the flash memory in VB-C60, be sure to create
a backup of them.
■ image.cgi Parameters
Command
Description
Specifies the pan of the camera in units of 0.01. When a positive value is specified, the
camera is panned toward the right. When a negative value is specified, the camera is panned
pan
toward the left direction.
Example:90 degrees toward right ⇒ pan=9000
35 degrees toward left ⇒ pan=-3500
Specifies the tilt of the camera in units of 0.01. When a positive value is specified, the camera
is tilted upward. When a negative value is specified, the camera is tilted downward.
tilt
Example:20 degrees to upward
⇒ tilt=2000
15 degrees to downward ⇒ tilt=-1500
Specifies the zoom angle (horizontal) of the camera in units of 0.01.
zoom
Example:50 degree angle ⇒ zoom=5000
5 degree angle ⇒ zoom=500

Distribute Still ImaÍges to a Mobile Phone
Tip
For pan, tilt and zoom, you can specify the relative position from the current position
using “d”, which indicates the current position.
Example:
Panning 10 degrees to the right from the current position ⇒ pan=d+1000
Tilting 5 degrees downward from the current position ⇒ tilt=d-500
Narrow the angel by 2 degrees ⇒ zoom=d-200
Widen the angle by 2 degrees ⇒ zoom=d+200
You can also specify “v”, which indicates the percentage for the current angle. In this
method, specify the percentage using the current angle as 100. (Half the angle is 50,
and twice the angle is 200.)
Panning for the angle (=1 screen) to the right from the current position ⇒ pan=v+100
Tilting half a screen downward from the current position ⇒ tilt=v-50
Half the angle ⇒ zoom=v+50
Double the angle ⇒ zoom=v+200

password is “VB-C60.” However, all settings including network settings, such as the IP
address and subnet mask are also initialized, so you need to be set again.
Cannot upload images
● Make sure that you have correctly set both the upload destination in the “Upload” menu,
and event upload operation in the “Event” menu.
● You can check the performance of already-applied setting of upload destination with the
“Test” submenu in the “Upload” menu (➞ P.1-22, 1-23, 1-24).
● Be sure to check detailed operating conditions through log events in the “Maintenance”
menu or logs on the server. See “Application Messages (Uploader)” (➞ P.5-8) and Note
in Page 1-21.
● Contact the system administrator for server settings.

Restore the Factory Default Settings
Since VB-C60 supports various functions, it is recommended to take a note of each setting value.
If you need to redo settings from the beginning because you have forgotten them or for some
other reasons, restore the factory default settings.
* For information on the factory default settings, refer to P.5-16.
Restore the Factory Default Settings from the Maintenance Menu Using a Web Browser
1. Start a Web browser and access the camera’s
setting page
The camera’s IP address, user name and
administration password are required to display the
setting page (➞ P. 1-8).
2. Click “Maintenance” on the setting page
The Maintenance page is displayed.
3. Click “Restore” in the “Restore Settings”
submenu
A message of whether to restore the factory default
settings is displayed for confirmation. Click “OK” to
restore the factory default settings.
Note
● Never power off the camera while the restore operation is in progress. If turning off
before completion, the camera may not work properly.
● Once you click “OK”, the process cannot be cancelled.
4. All settings in the camera will be returned to the factory default settings
All settings will be restored to the factory default settings, except camera’s administrator
password, IP address, subnet mask, default gateway address, date and time, time zone, LAN
interface, maximum transmission unit, and IPv6 use. The camera will be automatically rebooted
after the restoring process.
5-14
Restore the Factory Default Settings
Initialize the Camera using the Reset Switch
If you have forgotten the IP address or Administrator password of VB-C60, you cannot control the
camera via the network. In this case, press the reset switch on the rear of the camera.
1. Power off the camera
For information on how to power on/off the camera, refer to “Turning ON / OFF” (➞ d Start
Guide P.2-7).
2. Switch on the camera with holding down the reset switch, then keep holding
the reset switch for at least 5 seconds
The reset switch is recessed from the rear panel. Use a thin tipped object to press the reset
switch.
All settings will be initialized.
Appendix
Reset Switch
Note
If you use the reset switch to initialize VB-C60, all the settings including the networkrelated settings (IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway address) will be
initialized. Therefore, you cannot use the camera from the PC connected to the camera
via the network after reset. Set the IP address for your environment using “VB Initial
Setting Tool v4.0” installed in the PC when initializing the camera (➞ d Start Guide
P.2-9).
