  • Embedded video content analytics
  • ONVIF compliant
  • PoE & IR cut filter

Detailed Features

High optical performance

With the ultra-wide 100° horizontal viewing field, 3x zoom and F1.2 brightness the VB-M700F 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-M700F 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

Its operating temperature range, from -10°C and 50°C, makes the VB-M700F ideal for indoor and outdoor surveillance. Fully compatible with an outdoor housing, the protective lens plate can be removed by one screw, avoiding dual lens layers to maintain image quality. Configuring the camera is easy by using the Admin Tools onboard the camera.
