Marketing text Canon Communication Camera VC-C50I

The official marketing text of Canon Communication Camera VC-C50I as supplied by the manufacturer
The VC-C50i features a state-of-the-art optical system for high level security monitoring. Benefits include a wide surveillance range and exceptional performance in low-light conditions.
Outstanding zoom capacity to capture every detail
With a 26x optical zoom provided by a powered Canon telephoto lens, the VC-C50i communication camera produces extremely close-up images. Furthermore, a 12x digital zoom allows any area to be electronically enlarged for detailed examination. This enhanced optical system is based on Canon's long heritage in lens technology - making these cameras ideal for critical surveillance applications, where accuracy and precision are essential.

Superb performance in low-light conditions

The camera can deliver colour images even when operating in very poor lighting conditions - as low as 1 lux - thanks to a bright f/1.6 lens and a slow shutter speed. The VC-C50i can also produce monochrome images in total darkness (0 lux), using its Infrared Night Mode. An integral LED illuminator provides a viewing range of up to 3 metres, showing objects which are not visible to the naked eye. Additional infrared lighting can extend the viewing range still further.

Extended range with crystal-clear recorded images

The VC-C50i features a remote controlled Pan and Tilt mechanism with a wide 200° pan and 120° tilt range. The camera has 9 preset positions, controlling camera angles as well as zoom and AE settings. A 400K pixel CCD ensures smooth and sharp recorded images. Plus, Automatic Noise Reduction further improves image quality by processing the image before transmission.

Advanced connectivity for easy integration

A single 20-pin multi-connector accommodates S-Video and RS-232C control signals. This provides quick and easy connectivity to other devices, for simple integration into your existing system with minimal
cabling. A cascade facility allows up to 9 cameras to be connected together, via the RS-232C interface. The cameras are fully compatible with Canon's VB150 Camera Server. And, although the camera can be
connected to a host PC or camera server, an Infrared remote control handset is supplied, allowing the operator to control the PTZ functions locally.
