Detailed Features

Take a more detailed look into the Canon VB-R13

Crisp HD images for advanced indoor monitoring

The VB-R13 indoor network camera captures stunning detail even in low-light environments, thanks to its 1/3” Full HD CMOS imaging sensor. The VB-R13 combines high-quality optics, fast auto focus, powerful Haze Compensation and Smart Shade Control (SSC) to enhance details even in challenging lighting conditions. Its fast 450° per second speed of operation paired with Auto-Flip and continuous 360° panning means subjects can be tracked quickly and accurately.

Powerful zoom gets you closer to what matters

The VB-R13’s 30x optical and 20x digital zoom make it ideal for surveillance and monitoring applications. When the optical zoom reaches its limit, the Enhanced Digital Zoom substitutes low-resolution images with cropped images, extending the camera’s magnification while maximising image quality. The aspherical and High UD-distortion suppression lens helps prevent chromatic aberration and achieves high-resolution images from any distance.

Detailed images even at full telephoto in low light

Achieve incredible images even in near-darkness. The VB-R13 can produce crisp images in light conditions as low as 0.05 lux for colour images and 0.002 lux for monochrome images. Area-specific Data Size Reduction (ADSR) technology retains resolution in areas of interest to optimise bandwidth requirements, while intelligent Motion Adaptive Noise Reduction monitors the frame and dynamically adjusts low-light noise to optimise image quality.

Designed for the digital future

The VB-R13 offers viewing and configuration from a wide range of browsers and mobile devices, making it easy to view live footage remotely from within a mobile environment. The VB-R13 can be quickly and easily integrated into an existing network of surveillance devices: set up and configuration is simple with the Canon Camera Management Tool (CCMT), while ONVIF Profile S and G compliance ensures maximum compatibility with third-party security systems.

A flexible surveillance tool

From Ethernet network configurations to stand-alone SD memory card recording, the VB-R13 is ready for any indoor application. Surveillance is simple, using in-built analytics profiles for sophisticated alarm detection, 256 pre-set camera positions, five pre-set tours, plus alarm detection I/O and two-way audio.
