Axis Communications VB-S30D overview

  • 1Description

The Canon VB-S30D PTZ Micro Dome Full HD PoE Network Camera is a compact, yet full featured, PTZ surveillance camera with auto focus. It is suited for business, banking, educational institutions, airport and transportation, and casino/gaming applications. It features a 1/4.85" CMOS sensor with a Bayer pattern filter, a 3.5x Optical zoom lens with 4x Digital zoom, and a wide angle of view of 77.7°. The F1.4 autofocus lens features aspheric lens elements contributing to its sharp image quality. The Canon DIGIC III processor handles image processing, and the DIGIC Net II processor handles the video stream.

The camera features selectable auto/manual white balance modes, so it can be used in a variety of environments and provide normal color images. When light levels drop below the camera's color threshold, it switches to monochrome mode. The PTZ camera features 350° of pan and 90° of tilt when ceiling mounted, so it can follow a subject virtually anywhere. The camera features an Ethernet port for control and video output. It features PoE (Power over Ethernet) compatibility that allows you to install the camera almost anywhere you can run Cat5e or better cable. The camera streams using either MJPEG (Motion JPEG) or web friendly H.264 compression. It features on-board video analytics, and you can set up a privacy mask to prevent specific areas for the frame from being recorded. The camera is compliant with the ONVIF Profile S specification, so it can be used in conjunction with available cameras and NVRs from alternate manufacturers that are also ONVIF Profile S compliant.

DIGIC DV III Image Processor & DIGIC NET Processor
The DIGIC DV III image processor provides superior image quality with life-like colors, tonal accuracy, and reduced image noise at lower power consumption. The DIGIC NET II processor allows the VB-S30D to deliver video as either H.264 or MJPEG in high resolution (1920 x 1080) at a maximum frame rate of 30 fps with no loss in frame rate.
Smart Shade Control
Smart Shade Control automatically adjusts images that may have a bright background by adjusting the gain of the underexposed areas without affecting the exposure of the properly exposed areas. This feature helps to make backlit images easier to see and vital areas of interest easier to monitor.
Auto Day/Night Capability
The Auto Day/Night feature allows this camera to automatically adjust to maintain optimal image quality as the available light changes. A removable IR cut filter and optimized IR light reflection suppression coating allow for low light visibility with minimal ghosting.
Built-In Analytics
Video Analytics with set triggers including Moving, Removed and Abandoned Object Detection, Camera Tampering Detection, and Passing Detection are included in the camera.
You may choose preset camera positions and combine them as you wish to create a custom camera move.
The camera supports Power over Ethernet, which allows the camera to be powered using the Ethernet connection that carries control signals and streams the video to your network. With PoE, you don't have to run an additional power line and outlet to power the camera, you can mount the camera almost anywhere you can run an Ethernet cable. PoE requires an available PoE network switch or other available PoE system.
The VB-S30D is IEEE802.1x Client Authentication protocol compliant, giving additional network security through port based access control. Further security is provided by the support of HTTPS.
The VB-S30D supports up to 50 user accounts, with user names and passwords. There are three types of accounts: Administrator, Authorized user, and Guest user. Each type of account has different levels of access and control.


ONVIF Profile S
ONVIF is the open standard that is being implemented across the CCTV industry. The idea behind ONVIF is to standardize communication between IP-based security cameras and recorders, allowing equipment from different manufacturers to work together. ONVIF Profile S specifies video and audio streaming. The VB-S30D is ONVIF Profile S compliant, so it will provide at a minimum video streaming (it does not have audio capabilities) when integrated into a network system with compliant equipment from different manufacturers and third party recording software systems.
