Testing IP Surveillance Cameras

Canon VB-H43 PTZ IP Camera

The VB-H43 P/T/Z camera by Canon U.S.A. of Melville, N.Y., offer a 60.4 degree angle of view lens with strong 20x optical zoom and 12x digital zoom.

The camera features a relative pan/tilt speed mode function, which slows the pan/tilt speed as the zoom factor is increased in order to help ensure accurate surveillance by reducing the possibility that the camera operator may pan beyond a moving subject.

A recorded video utility feature enables users to record H.264 and M-JPEG images or video automatically to an SD, SDHC, or SDXC card during a network outage, or manually through a viewer. Videos can also be played back directly from the camera. The VB-H43 can capture potentially crucial image detail in low-illumination environments down to 0.4 lux at f/1.6 and 1/30 sec. in color and 0.02 lux at f/1.6 and 1/30 sec. in black & white, according to the company.
