Network Video Monitoring made easy and affordable
Power over Ethernet support
Reduce the cost and complexity of camera installation with Power over Ethernet support. The VB-C50FSi is powered directly from the LAN cable when connected to a PoE-compliant network. No AC mains power source is required at the site. This also enables versatile camera placement.

Powerful zoom capability
The genuine Canon 26x power zoom lens with 12x digital zoom produces close-up images. Exceptional detail ensures a high level of surveillance from a distance. A 400K pixel CCD provides clear and accurate viewing, without any loss of detail.

Smooth full motion video
Capture images at up to 25 frames per second for smooth full motion video. A 768 x 576
pixel resolution guarantees high quality transmission. The video quality and frame rate can be set freely to suit the network bandwidth producing natural images. Reach up to 50 users simultaneously while ensuring a clear and sharp picture.

Excellent low-light capability
The low-light capability allows full colour operation down to 1 lux. A Night Mode feature captures monochrome images even in complete darkness when used with external infrared lighting.

Optional audio input
Send audio signals over the network via the optional VB-EX50 Multi-Terminal Module. Broadcast a warning to intruders or a welcome to visitors.

Low cost solution
This all-in-one solution ensures low cost security monitoring. Both the fixed-mount Network Camera and web server are housed in a compact and stylish unit. Start streaming live video straight away for high performance with a minimum investment.

Simple operation
Remote control software ensures easy use. Operation is via Canon's WebView viewer (PC only) or via Java (PC, Mac and Unix).

Fully featured
The Motion Detection feature can be used to send an email alert, record images or activate external devices whenever motion is detected. A 26-pin multi-connector allows easy connection to peripheral devices, via Canon's VB-EX50 Multi-Terminal Module. This includes sensors, a door lock or connection to an external monitor.

Maximum frame rate*
This is the maximum frame rate, also known as frame frequency and frames per second (FPS). It is the frequency (rate) at which an imaging device produces unique consecutive images called frames. The term applies equally well to film and video cameras, computer graphics, and motion capture systems. Frame rate is most often expressed in frames per second (FPS) and is also expressed in progressive scan monitors as hertz (Hz).
25 fps
Optical zoom
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
Digital zoom
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
0.138 - 3.58" (3.5 - 91 mm)
Viewing angle, horizontal
Maximum horizontal angle at which a display can be viewed with acceptable visual performance.
Minimum illumination
Also known as light sensitivity, this is the smallest amount of light needed for the camera to produce an image of useable quality.
1 lx
Color of product*
The colour e.g. red, blue, green, black, white.
Sensor type
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
Optical sensor size
Optical sensors are electronic detectors that convert light, or a change in light, into an electronic signal. They are used in many industrial and consumer applications e.g. lamps that turn on automatically in response to darkness. Optical sensors come in many sizes.
