40x optical zoom

VB-C60

Employing Canon’s long history of world-class optic technology, the VB-C60 is at the forefront of network video solutions. Boasting an unmatched 40x optical zoom lens it allows you to capture close-up images in astonishing detail while the in-built image stabilising technology compensates for image blur in cases of construction vibrations or strong winds, so you are able to record the video footage you need, effortlessly and steadily.

Full pan-and-tilt control

VB-C60

With an extremely wide pan-and-tilt range and control, you can capture every angle. This camera can provide coverage for a full 360° horizontal field of view with a pan range of 170° and viewing angles can be further adjusted easily even after installation with the included software applications. Additional quick autofocus in Canon's network cameras means images remain exceptionally clear even during panning, tilting or zooming.

Power-over-Ethernet

VB-C60

Canon’s PoE technology allows the use of a single LAN cable to power the network camera and transfer high quality video and audio data when connected to the PoE switch. Without the need of an external power cable, Canon’s network video cameras can be installed at any location you wish with ease – indoors or outdoors – and without additional expensive power cabling costs.
