The Canon VB101 Network Camera Server is an easy way to provide remote monitoring of images over a network. Unlike traditional video monitoring, which requires dedicated monitors and expensive coax cables, the Canon VB101 lets you connect a video cameras directly to any Ethernet network, intranet, or even the Internet. Any surveillance application -- from intruder detection, process control, and industrial or public surveillance to visual security and image archiving -- can benefit from the low-cost functionality and versatility of the Canon VB101.

The Canon VB101 server is a network server that distributes live JPEG images, or DVD-quality video via Motion-JPEG over an intranet or the Internet. With a built-in Web and FTP server and a direct network connection, the Canon VB101 allows high-quality remote surveillance from any browser on the network for up to 20 simultaneous viewers. Also, as a stand-alone server, this unit can operate without a PC, and allows you to control camera features and functions remotely via your Web browser. By simply configuring the network server and plugging in the camera, you can begin webcasting. The Canon VB101 features Pan/Tilt/Zoom support for remote camera control, remote JPEG file upload via FTP, and other operations such as brightness control, shutter speed, video connection time and more. By attaching sensors to the VB101 through its In/Out device terminals, your camera can capture images on an event (such as a door opening) or a scheduled basis. Because the Canon VB101 is a self-contained Web server, it can be secured like any other Internet host. Using the unit's security settings, such as password protection and host recognition, an administrator can assign whether individuals, groups, a whole company or the whole world can access the server.
