BUILT-IN FTP SERVER / WEB SERVER
The VB150 can also function as a web
server. By placing home page data in an
optional flash memory card, you can
broadcast information and images at the
same time. You can also upload data
remotely using FTP.
LOG FUNCTION
The log feature records information such
as system malfunctions and access
conditions and saves it to a file or sends it
out by e-mail to any specified address.
ARCHIVING STILL IMAGES
The VB150 can store still images captured
at scheduled dates and times, or when it
receives a signal from external devices.
Search stored images using your Internet
browser. It can also broadcast according
to incoming signals or a set schedule.
MOTION DETECTION
The VB150 can detect image changes
caused by moving people or objects,
perform external device output and record
pictures.
EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY AND RANGE
Canon’s digital signal processing
system reproduces rich, smooth video
images and precise focal control. A
high-performance 16x zoom allows a
wider viewing angle, with a largeaperture f/1.4 lens for optimum
brightness. The VC-C4 camera pans to
± 100° and tilts -30° to +90°, while the
VC-C4R ceiling mount model pans to
± 170° and tilts from +10° to -90°.
Both cameras are positioned in the
middle of the system, ensuring
high-speed, stability and precise
camera movement.
THE SMART MONITORING SOLUTION
The MV Manager automatically creates
monitoring screens and controls multiple
camera servers. With the MV Station, the
users can control cameras and the monitor
in a variety of views for a pleasant
monitoring environment.
MONITOR MULTIPLE LOCATIONS
The Livescope views a maximum of
16 locations at the same time. A map
function indicates the camera’s location
on a map image. Includes automatic
switching of displayed images. An
auto-run function shows the preset
locations in sequential order, viewing the
information and status of camera servers.
VERSATILITY AND EASE
Up to nine VC-C4/VC-C4R cameras
can be controlled simultaneously
from one PC for use in a large
conference room. The cameras can be
‘cascade-connected’ via the RS-232C
cable and then programmed for
individual control.
SEARCH AND VIEW STORED IMAGES
Images stored on the VB-C10/VB150
flash memory card can be searched and
displayed according to date and time,
external device signal inputs, etc. The
animation function displays images
consecutively.
