Renowned Lens Technology

Thanks to Canon’s optical technology, our network cameras benefit from fast, bright lenses and deliver clean sharp images with minimal distortion.

High UD (Ultra Low-Dispersion) glass elements of high refractive index suppress the incidence of chromatic aberration prevalent in high-magnification lens units, minimising both barrel and pincushion distortion and providing natural-looking images with high edge-to-edge resolution across the zoom range.

Should you need to supplement conditions with the use of infrared lighting, an IR correcting lens coating improves sensitivity, controls ghosting and flare and enhances the cameras' low-light performance.

Sensor Technology

CMOS sensors are a key component employed in any network camera. Using proprietary technologies, Canon sensors are designed to combine high sensitivity and high image quality with low noise.

Through the pursuit of ultra-high-sensitivity, ultra-high-resolution performance, these sensors are being used in various fields, such as medical research, and surveillance and in our network cameras.

Image Processing

Image processing


Dual image and network processors – DIGIC DV III and DIGIC NET II – enable seamless capturing, processing, encoding and transmitting of images.

The DIGIC DV III engine – also used in Canon’s Cinema EOS professional movie cameras – provides exceptional video quality, low noise, smooth gradations plus vivid and accurate colour reproduction – especially in low light conditions.

Image Analysis

In-camera Intelligent video content analytics allow for realtime analysis of potential security breaches. Up to 15 areas in a scene can be designated for detection using 8 different algorithms, which include Intruder and Scream detection.

This redefines traditional alarm detection methods by helping to reduce false alarms, increase efficiency, and reduce the storage needed, by only triggering the recording of genuine threats.

The Linked Events function enables alarms to be logically combined to provide conditional alarm triggers.

Miniaturised Mechatronics

Miniaturised Mechatronics


Our strength in miniaturised mechatronics (computer controlled electro-mechanical sub-systems), allows us to develop products with strong benefits for our customers.

One such system is the unique remote configuration capability for our network cameras - PTRZ.

Once installed and connected to a network, the camera’s position and angle of view can be electronically adjusted with the Camera Angle Setting Tool. The camera's direction can be changed intuitively by pressing the pan/tilt buttons, rotation sliders and the zoom slider that appear on the adjustment window. This enables just one person to complete the configuration, saving both time and money.
