SELANGOR (8 July 2014)– Canon launches the world’s smallest FULL HD Powered Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) dome camera*. The freshly unveiled range of network cameras leverages on Canon’s expertise in imaging technologies to provide ultra-compact surveillance technology that has an unparalleled feature set and is highly cost-effective. This new range of network cameras caters especially for retail and commercial environments, office surveillance, building security and for operations management with particular emphasis on anti-crime and operations surveillance purposes. These network cameras are IEEE802.1X compliant, keeping users’ network secured, and at the same time, providing superb image quality.

A new function, Auto Smart Shade Control (Auto SSC) is also built-in to the whole range, and maintains image sharpness even when shadows are generated by backlight or other causes, ensuring correct brightness of the entire image. Faces and other subject matter being viewed remain sharp and clearly visible even with bright light in the background.

The unique multi-streaming capability allows footage to be watched in FULL HD (live) and provide users with an option of recording the video in varying compressed formats and lower resolutions to extend recording capacity.
