The VB-R13 2.1 MP PoE PTZ Speed Dome Network Camera from Canon offers PTZ control with 360° endless panning capability, 180° tilting with automatic image flipping, and a 450° per-second high-speed precision pan/tilt mechanism. In addition to 30x optical zoom for crisp images even from long distances, the VB-R13 also offers an enhanced digital zoom function that can offer up to an equivalent 120x optical zoom when streaming at lower resolutions.

The VB-R13 camera comes equipped with core technologies, including an advanced Canon lens, high-sensitivity CMOS image sensor, and DIGIC DV III image processor, all working in unison to deliver images with color accuracy, even in low-light environments. A mounting plate is included for secure installation of the camera, and users will benefit from the ability to establish up to 256 preset camera positions and schedule up to five preset tour routes. An image stabilization feature ensures that the VB-R13 can deliver clear video with minimal motion blurring even when installed in areas with frequent vibrations, such as on top of a pole or near heavy machinery.

The VB-R13 camera is ONVIF Profile S and Profile G conformant to help ensure maximum interoperability with third-party recorders, and also includes a CCMT (Canon Camera Management Tool) that allows for centralized management of current Canon network cameras (camera discovery, configuration, backups and restores, firmware upgrades, and more). It uses a maximum of 10.7W of power when using PoE, thus helping to reduce the overall system power requirements. It also offers audio and external I/O support, enabling two-way communication between the operator and camera location.
