The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
Category :
A webcam is a digital video camera that has to be connected directly to a computer or network and cannot be used seperately. Webcams are perfect for video calling and chatting: finally you can see your faraway friends or family while talking/chatting! Network attached webcams can be used as affordable security cameras.

Marketing text Canon Communication camera VC-C50IR

The official marketing text of Canon Communication camera VC-C50IR as supplied by the manufacturer
The VC-C50iR features a state-of-the-art optical system for high level security monitoring. Benefits include a wide surveillance range and exceptional performance in low-light conditions.

- Pan/Tilt/Zoom camera with 9 pre-set positions
- 26x Optical Zoom with powered telephoto lens
- Superior performance in low-light conditions
- Built-in Infrared illuminator
- Easy set up and advanced connectivity
- Cascade control facility for up to 9 cameras

Powerful Pan, Tilt and Zoom Communication Camera

With a 26x optical zoom provided by a powered Canon telephoto lens, the VC-C50iR communication camera can produce extremely close-up images. Furthermore, a 12x digital zoom allows any area to be digitally enlarged for detailed examination. This enhanced optical system is based on Canon's long heritage in lens technology - making the camera ideal for critical surveillance monitoring, where accuracy and precision are essential.

Superb performance in low-light conditions
This camera can deliver colour images even when operating in very poor lighting conditions – as low as 1 lux – thanks to a bright f/1.6 lens and a slow shutter speed. The VC-C50iR can also produce monochrome images in total darkness (0 lux), using its Infrared Night Mode. An integral LED illuminator provides a viewing range of up to 3 metres, showing up objects which are not visible to the naked eye. Additional infrared lighting can extend the viewing range still further.

Extended range with crystal-clear recorded images
The VC-C50iR is designed to be fixed to a ceiling, and has an extensive 340° pan and 100° tilt range for all-round visibility. Additionally, there are 9 preset positions for instant recall of camera angles, zoom and AE settings. A 400K pixel CCD ensures sharp recorded images, while Automatic Noise Reduction further improves image quality by processing the image before transmission.

Advanced connectivity for easy integration
A single 20-pin multi-connector accommodates S-Video and RS-232C control signals. This provides quick and easy connectivity to other devices, for simple integration into your existing system with minimal cabling. A cascade facility allows up to 9 cameras to be connected together, via the RS-232C interface. The cameras are fully compatible with Canon's VB150 Camera Server. And, although the camera can be connected to a host PC or camera server, an Infrared remote control handset is available – allowing an operator to control the PTZ functions locally.

Maximum frame rate*
This is the maximum frame rate, also known as frame frequency and frames per second (FPS). It is the frequency (rate) at which an imaging device produces unique consecutive images called frames. The term applies equally well to film and video cameras, computer graphics, and motion capture systems. Frame rate is most often expressed in frames per second (FPS) and is also expressed in progressive scan monitors as hertz (Hz).
25 fps
Optical zoom
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
Digital zoom
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
