Detailed Features

Enhanced vandal-resistant and IP66 design

With an alloy aluminium exterior housing and strong polycarbonate resin dome, the VB-M600VE 1.3 MP fixed camera is impact resistant, also meeting IP66 dust and waterproof rating standards making it ideal for outdoor use. Featuring a new camera damper mechanism, in high-shock incidents with impact up to 50 Joules, the lens can retract up to 15mm to avoid damage. With an operational temperature range of -10°C and 50°C, the VB-M600VE excels in harsh environments, equipped with a fog reduction mechanism plus an optional heating unit for colder climates - performing as low as -30°C.

High optical performance

With the ultra-wide 100° horizontal viewing field, 3x zoom and F1.2 brightness the VB-M600VE is ideal for capturing high-resolution images. Equipped with an electronic rear focus zoom system the images stay in focus whilst zooming. Using the Canon DIGIC NET processing and day/night IR cut filter, it excels in low lighting conditions, capturing colour images as low as 0.4 lux and in monochrome night mode as low as 0.01 lux.

High quality video

DIGIC NET, which also features Smart Shade Control, allows simultaneous, high-resolution Motion JPEG and H.264 video streaming at up to 30fps at 1.3MP (1280x960). H.264 compression format combines high quality and high compression rates ensuring low network and storage load.

Intelligent features

The VB-M600VE has four embedded video content analytic functions that are able to detect camera tampering, identify moved objects, removed objects and abandoned objects. Sound detection allows the camera to detect changes in volume. Detection functions can be set to activate recording and uploading to a server or email notification. With the privacy mask function it is possible to block confidential zones.

ONVIF compatibility

The device supports the communication protocol ONVIF V1.02 making it compatible with other 3rd party ONVIF-compliant equipment.

Easy installation and setup

Configuring the camera is easy by using the Admin Tools onboard the camera. An electronic adjusting mechanism let the users setup pan/tilt/rotate/zoom/ settings by a remote computer saving time in the installation phase.
