Canon VB-H730F overview

  • 1Description

Canon's VB-H730F 2.1MP Varifocal Indoor Box Camera is a feature-packed camera that can be used as a stand-alone unit or integrated into a NVR or NAS surveillance system with its ONVIF compliance. Employing a 1/3" 2.1MP progressive-scan CMOS image sensor and a 2.8-8.4mm variable focus lens, with a 3x optical zoom, the camera captures images with resolutions of up to 1920x1080 at 30fps. Its lens is fully multicoated and made up of aspherical elements to virtually eliminate spherical aberration and astigmatism which can cause distortion and prevent sharp focusing.

The camera features motorized zoom and focus to allow the user to fine-tune/adjust the settings after installation on a PC with the included VMS. While this is not a true pan/tilt/zoom camera, it does have digital ePTZ functionality with a 4x digital zoom to complement the optical zoom. The software can digitally zoom-in anywhere in the camera's field of view and, while zoomed, pan and tilt through the FoV. Program multiple preset positions and guard-tours to increase the area of view for enhanced surveillance concentration on important areas.

Most of the features and functions of the camera are completely configurable so you can tailor its performance to your needs. Multiple recording modes, media streams, motion-detection zones, privacy mask zones, exposure control, and adjustable image settings let you adapt the camera image and recording to whatever location and conditions you put it in. You can access the camera from Internet Explorer via Windows, and it supports multiple simultaneous accessibility. Program multiple users, each with their own password, and limit or grant access to all the features on a per-user basis from live-view only, all the way up to full administrator permissions. Save your files to a remotely-located NVR or NAS, or to the on-board microSD card slot.
