Before Use
❏ Camera Features
❏ Software Information
❏ Operating Environment and Precautions
VB-M700F/VB-M600D/VB-M600VE Features
This camera integrates both camera and server functions into a compact network camera.
„ F1.2 Optical Megapixel 3x Zoom Lens with
maximum 101.2° Horizontal Viewing Angle
„ Intelligent Functions that Enable a Wide
Range of Detection
The optical megapixel 3x zoom lens (Electric Drive) with a
maximum 101.2° horizontal angle of view lets you perform
high-quality video monitoring.
The camera also boasts a wide array of intelligent
functions, including moving object detection, abandoned
object detection, removed object detection, camera
tampering detection and volume detection.
Using detection results as a trigger, the system can
automatically upload the corresponding image to a
designated location via FTP/HTTP/STMP (e-mail) or
provide event notification.
„ Simultaneous Distribution of JPEG and
H.264
JPEG/H.264 video compression achieves high image
quality and a high frame rate of up to 30 frames per
second*1 in 1280x960 resolution. Up to 30 clients*2 can
view the same video simultaneously.
*1 Note that the frame rate may drop depending on
performance of the PC running the viewer, the number
of clients connected at the same time, network load,
and other factors.
*2 In H.264 distribution, up to 10 clients can be connected
at once.
„ Clear Video Capture in Low Illumination and
Day/Night Automatic Switching
The camera can capture color images at a minimum
subject illumination of 0.25 lux (1/30 sec.). In addition, the
day/night automatic switching function* ([Day/Night]
(P. 5-10)) automatically switches the camera between
color mode when sufficient light is available during
daytime, and black & white mode in dark conditions at
nighttime, in order to support video monitoring in locations
with varying levels of illumination.
* Before enabling day/night automatic switching, check
operations thoroughly.
„ The Computer-Operated Camera Angle
Setting Tool
This product comes with the Camera Angle Setting Tool
that lets you make motorized pan, tilt, rotation, zoom, and
focus adjustments.
You can make adjustments while you view video on a PC
for hassle-free adjustment during installation.

„ Shock Resistant Materials and Mechanisms
VB-M600VE
This product's exterior materials are made of aluminum
alloy and 3.5 mm-thick (0.14 in.-thick) polycarbonate
resin. The camera also features a shock absorbing
mechanism that creates a highly shock resistant structure.
The camera's dome case also uses special screws that
cannot be easily removed.
„ Privacy Mask Function
The camera is also equipped with a privacy mask function
that hides part of an image.
„ Dustproof/Waterproof Mechanisms that
Enable a Wide Variety of Installation
Environments VB-M600VE
The camera complies with the demanding IP66 dustproof/
waterproof specifications and can be installed underneath
eaves without any housing. The optional genuine heater
lets you use the camera in low-temperature environments
as cold as -30°C (-22°F).
„ Smart Shade Control
When the background is bright and the subject is difficult
to see, you can correct the contrast of dark areas to make
the subject clearer. Unlike backlight compensation, this
prevents blown out exposure of the background because
bright areas are not controlled. These processes are
implemented by dedicated hardware, which reduces
image degradation and can decrease system load
compared to conventional shade control (P. 7-11).
VB-M700F/VB-M600D/VB-M600VE Features

Admin Viewer/VB Viewer
❏ Differences between the Admin Viewer and the VB Viewer
❏ User Authorities and Camera Control Privileges
❏ Viewer Startup and Operation
❏ Camera Control and Obtaining Camera Control Privileges
❏ Admin Viewer Operation and Settings
Overview of Viewer
The camera comes loaded with a viewer. Accessing this viewer via a web browser allows you to display images and
operate the camera.
Two types of viewer are available, the Admin Viewer and the VB Viewer.
VB-M700/600 Viewer
Admin Viewer
Important
Use the RM-Lite Viewer to display H.264 video from the
camera.
Only JPEG images can be displayed using the VB-M700/600
viewer.
VB Viewer
VB Viewer:
Users with camera control authority can use this
viewer. You can set the applicable options to
enable/disable authentication, etc.
User Authorities and Camera Control
Privileges
Major Differences Between the Admin
Viewer and the VB Viewer
• The operable ranges differ between the viewers.
Admin Viewer:
You can use the administrative control functions
such as displaying images from the camera, Viewer
PTZ operation, focus, exposure, white balance,
event detection display, etc.
VB Viewer:
This viewer is limited to basic image operations for
viewing images.
• Accessible controls are different.
Admin Viewer:
Users with privileged camera control can use this
viewer.
Password authentication is required.
Authorized users must have privileged camera
control assigned by the Administrator beforehand
(P. 5-22).

User authorities and their relative camera control
privileges are specified as follows.

* Changing: The Administrator can change the privileges
of Authorized Users and Guest Users (P. 5-22).
The four authorities that can be set for users are privileged
camera control, camera control, image distribution and
audio distribution.
Users must have privileged camera control to use the
Admin Viewer.
Overview of Viewer
Users must have the image distribution authority to
display images using the VB Viewer. To operate the
camera using the VB Viewer, users must also have
camera control authority.
Audio distribution authority is required to receive audio
using the Admin Viewer and the VB Viewer.
[Administrator]
This user is given all authorities. The user name is fixed
to “root”.
The Administrator can launch the Admin Viewer from
the [Admin Viewer] link on the top page.
[Guest User]
This user can only perform backlight compensation,
snapshots, image display and audio distribution.
Guest users can launch the VB Viewer from the [VB
Viewer] link on the top page. The Administrator can
completely prohibit all camera access from guest users
by disabling all their authorities.
• At any time, the [Administrator] can launch the Admin Viewer
to override the camera control privileges of another instance
of the Admin Viewer launched by an [Authorized User]. The
Administrator can retain the camera control privileges, but
doing so prevents authorized users from obtaining camera
control privileges. After viewing the necessary information,
the Administrator should always close the viewer or click
[Obtain/release Camera Control] to release the control
privileges.
• The Admin Viewer launched by the [Administrator] can
access only one camera at a time. While administrator
authorities are used to access the camera from a given PC,
access with administrator authorities from other PCs will be
not be granted. In contrast, the camera can be accessed
simultaneously by multiple instances of the Admin Viewer
launched by [Authorized Users] from different PCs. Take
note, however, that when controlling the camera, the control
privileges are given to the user who accessed the camera
most recently.
7
Admin Viewer/VB Viewer
[Authorized User]
Authorized users can launch the Admin Viewer from
the [Admin Viewer] link on the top page if they have
privileged camera control. Authorized users can no
longer launch the Admin Viewer upon losing privileged
camera control. However, they can still launch the VB
Viewer. Launching the VB Viewer can be prohibited by
disabling all authorities of a given authorized user
(P. 5-22).
Important
Note
• The factory default setting gives privileged camera control to
[Authorized User] as well.
• If all guest user authorities are disabled, the user
authentication dialog box will appear when the VB Viewer is
launched. When an authorized user or administrator name and
password are entered, the VB Viewer can be used with
authorized user or administrator authorities, respectively.

[Auto] mode, select the [Mercury Lamp] mode under light
source. If the image is still not shown in appropriate colors
under mercury lamps when the [Mercury Lamp] mode is
selected under light source, use the [Auto] mode.
• Notes on capturing video continuously day and night
If a subject that seldom changes is captured in a location
where the light source changes gradually, such as when
capturing a subject continuously day and night, the image
may not be shown in appropriate colors.

SD Memory Card Access
You can set the camera so that the following data is saved automatically to the camera's SD memory card. (“Chapter 5
Settings Page”, “[Memory Card] SD Memory Card Operations and Settings” (P. 5-29)).
• JPEG images stored when HTTP or FTP upload failed during network errors
• Log
Here is an explanation of how to access the data saved on the SD memory card.
„ Access to the SD Memory Card

„ JPEG Images Stored when Upload Fails
JPEG images that have failed to upload are saved under the file names “000.JPG” to “999.JPG” in subdirectories “00” to
“99,” which are created under “camera IP address/mnt/card/CANON/UPLOAD.”
When either the storage capacity of the SD memory card or the number of files that can be saved in all subdirectories is
reached, you cannot save to the SD memory card. In this case, use FTP software to download to a PC. Delete JPEG images
no longer needed.
„ Log Files
Log files are saved in “Camera's IP address/mnt/card/CANON/LOG” with the file names “MSG” and “MSG.1” to “MSG.5”.
“MSG” is the latest log.
Log files can be downloaded to a PC using FTP software, but you can use the Log Viewer in Admin Tools as a simple way
to view and download log files.

The viewer gets disconnected.
• Check the network and PC for abnormality.
• Reboot the PC and connect again.
You forgot your password.
• You can initialize all settings of the camera excluding date and time using the reset
switch (P. 8-21). The administrator password required for initialization is “camera”.
Note, however, that network settings such as the IP address and subnet mask will be
initialized and must be set again.
Data cannot be uploaded.
• Check the upload destination in the [Upload] menu, as well as the upload operation
upon event in the [Event] menu, to see if both are set correctly.
• You can perform an operation check based on the currently set upload destination by
running a test (P. 5-15) from the [Upload] menu.
• Check [View Logs] in the [Maintenance] menu or logs on the server to check the
detailed operating environment. For [View Logs], see “Application (uploader)
messages” (P. 8-9). Also see “Important” in P. 5-14.
• For the server settings, contact your System Administrator.
Files cannot be saved in the Settings page or
