Detailed Features

Penetration of Internet/Intranet is creating a infrastructure to increase the demand of webcasting live image through webpage and remote monitoring. At the same time, affordable price, compact size, easy setting etc is getting more and more important. In order to meet the customer's requirement Canon launched the VB101The Network Camera Server VB101 is capable of image capture at a speed of up to 30 frames per second. As users can control the image quality as well as the capture rate (at speeds between 0.1 and 30 fps) the settings can be programmed for optimised efficiency in a network environment. Up to 4 video cameras can be connected to the system, with 2 selected for camera control. Using Canon Communication Cameras, users can pan, tilt and zoom remotely, or restrict settings. The VB101 is fully compatible with standard internet/intranet protocols -and features built-in Web server functions for Web pages.

You can set up and manage the system remotely, without ever visiting the actual installation site. Simply access the VB101 server using the Web browser on your PC. This also allows you to easily control server settings direct from your desktop -
such as frame size and image capture size -and even change the IP address. 2 PCMCIA card slots ensure easy expansion, allowing you to add a modem or flash memory as required. By programming the settings page and Web page data to optional flash memory, a single VB101 server can be used to transmit data and video images across the web. While powerful security functions ensure that the destination for video transmissions can be restricted.

VB101 is a dedicated set box type product, which has the WebView Livescope camera server software ver2.01 with affordable cost, compact size & easy setting.
