Press Release: Canon unveils world’s smallest FULL HD PTZ surveillance camera

Canon recently launched the world’s smallest FULL HD Powered Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) dome camera. The freshly unveiled range of network cameras leverage Canon’s expertise in imaging technologies to provide ultra-compact surveillance technology which has an unparalleled feature set and is highly cost-effective.

The new range of compact FULL HD surveillance cameras have been developed specifically for anti-crime and operations surveillance purposes and are IEEE802.1X compliant, keeping your network secure.

“The new range of network cameras is perfect for retail and commercial environments, office surveillance, building security and for operations management. The four new cameras are the result of Canon’s extensive research and investment into lens and imaging technology. These cameras feature our high-end Canon lenses in a miniature form providing excellent image quality and low-light performance, are very easy to install and offer a great set of advanced intelligent features,” said David Klineberg, General Manager, Canon Specialised Imaging.

A new function, Auto Smart Shade Control (Auto SSC) is also built-in to the whole range, and maintains image sharpness even when shadows are generated by backlight or other causes ensuring correct brightness of the entire image. Faces and other subject matter being viewed remain sharp and clearly visible even with bright light in the background.

“On the few occasions where we have been able to access pre-release models of the new FULL HD cameras, our customers have commented on their remarkably small size and amazing quality – these cameras are just larger than the palm of your hand. This range has been developed in response to market demands and offers superb image quality, usability, ease of installation and is the smallest size in its class. We are confident that this product will have a strong uptake with Australian retail and commercial customers,” continued David.

All the cameras feature Canon engineered D!GIC DVIII and D!GIC NET II processors used in Canon’s high-end cinema cameras, to enable the highest quality image capture and high speed image compression and network distribution .The unique multi-streaming capability allows footage to be watched in FULL HD (live) and provide users with an option of recording the video in varying compressed formats andlower resolutions to extend recording capacity.
