VB_C500D_bro 1
Wide-Angle Lens with 2.4x Optical Zoom
The versatile 82° wide-angle vari-focal lens makes it easy
to monitor large spaces such as shopping malls and offices,
or smaller areas like ATMs and retail stores. A 2.4x optical
zoom (digital 4x) allows close-up viewing when required.
Clearer Details with
Smart Shade Control
In backlighted scenes where the subject is darkened and
difficult to be seen, Smart Shade Control adjusts the
contrast of the dark areas of the image so that the subject
and background can be clearly seen.
Excellent Low-Light Performance
The highly sensitive CCD can capture
color video at 0.2 lux (1/30 sec.),
while maint aining low noise
and accurate color reproduction.
Automatic Digital Night Mode
can also be activated to record
clear monochrome videos in low
light conditions.
Smart Shade Control On
Smart Shade Control Off
High Quality 30fps Video Capture
Videos can be captured with a resolution of 640 x 480
or 320 x 240 pixels at a 30fps frame rate. The progressive
scan format ensures smooth, high-quality images even
when subjects are moving.
0.2 LUX
Motion Detection Notification
Simultaneous Two-way Audio
If movement is detected or if an external device is triggered,
the network camera can be programmed to automatically
send the captured images to a pre-specified destination
via FTP, HTTP or SMTP (email).
The VB-C500D can transmit audio in real-time both to and
from an authorized networked PC, allowing administrators
to listen in on a camera site, make announcements,
or do both at the same time with the bundled software
VK-Lite Viewer.
Easy Installation with PoE
Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology enables the
VB-C500D to receive both data and power through a single
LAN cable. Once the camera is connected to a PoE enabled
hub, no additional electrical installation work is required.
Suitable for Wide Variety of Environments
Housed in an ultra compact 3.7-inch mini-dome,
the unobtrusive appearance of the VB-C500D allows
it to be installed in any inconspicuous area for
discreet surveillance.
