The VB-M50B 1.3MP PTZ Network Camera from Canon features a 1.3MP 1/3" progressive scan RGB CMOS sensor to capture 1280 x 960 resolution video at up to 30 fps. This camera is equipped with a 17.7-88.5mm varifocal lens, which provides a 5x optical zoom and a 15.6-3.2° horizontal field of view. The camera offers a pan, tilt, and zoom mechanism with the ability to set up to 64 preset positions and schedule up to five preset tour routes, eliminating the need for repeated manual adjustment of the PTZ positions.

Clear IR Mode activates an infrared bandpass filter that allows only infrared light to pass through to the image sensor to help capture high-quality images in even challenging environments. Auto Gain Control allows users to determine the fine balance of video brightness and low noise, while haze compensation automatically enhances contrast and maximizes image quality when fog, haze, or smog are present. In addition, the camera features video analytics including moving object detection and removed and abandoned object detection.

With the CCMT (Canon Camera Management Tool), users can configure and manage Canon Network Cameras from a single screen. Configuration is also simplified via ONVIF Profile S and G for maximum interoperability with many video management software (VMS) solutions. Additionally, the camera's bit rate stabilization feature can assure a more reliable connection by automatically suppressing bandwidth spikes when transmitting over a cellular data network.
