CANON WEB CAM SOLUTIONS ARE SMALLER AND QUICKER THAN EVER BEFORE Thursday 19 April 2001 PDF Print Today, Canon Voice & Data launches its new VC-C4 Web cam, featuring the latest in digital transmission and focal control technology in a compact, affordable, space-saving design. Weighing little more than 370g, with a panning capability of +/-100º and a tilt of -30º to 90º, the VC-C4 is the ideal webcasting, videoconferencing and monitoring tool. A ceiling suspension model, the VC-C4R, capable of +/-170º with a tilt of +10º to -90º ensures that stable and precise camera movement can be achieved, whatever the environment. "This latest model offers improved functionality over its predecessor, the VC-C3," reveals Amy Orford, Marketing Executive, Canon Voice & Data. "It's size and weight are particularly suited to activities requiring a discreet but high powered method of interactive visual communication. Together with video conferencing and webcasting, this equipment is also perfect for distance learning, medical consultancy, corporate training and quality control." With a high-performance 16x zoom, the VC-C4 allows a wider viewing angle than its predecessor and up to nine devices can be controlled simultaneously, creating even wider image coverage for use in large conference rooms. To further enhance communication quality, a large-aperture f/1.4 lens maintains optimum brightness whilst up to nine pre-set positions can be set to capture an environment from all angles. With just one touch of a wireless controller, a user can achieve instant focus on any subject, making the VC-C4 a useful labour saving tool. Complementing this latest Communication Camera is Canon's VB101 Network Camera Server which can sit on a company's internet or intranet site to transform webcasting into the ultimate interactive experience. This mechanism helps to optimise image capture in a networked environment and can produce image quality at speeds between 0.1 and 30 fps. Fully compatible with standard internet/intranet protocols, the VB101 also features built-in Web server functions for Web pages, allowing users to fully utilise the excitement of real-time, remote monitoring. Both devices are available now from Canon Voice & Data's video conferencing division. The VC-C4 is priced at a RRP of £699 (ex. VAT), the VC-C4R ceiling support model at a RRP of £725 (ex. VAT) and the VB101 Network Camera Server for a RRP of £1299 (ex. VAT).
