Find, view and manage your network video with VK-64
version 1.1 software -- through an interface that makes
everything incredibly easy to use. Drop-down menus let
you select the location or zone you're looking for.
Scroll bars let you find what you need in a flash. You
can simply click-and-drag camera thumbnail images into
the Viewing Area. Grab and drag the corner of an image
to adjust its size. VCR-style video controls let you
play, rewind, fast forward, or skip to events. You can
also pause, or advance through video frame-by-frame.
With the VK-64's well-designed interface, nothing gets
in the way of capturing, storing and retrieving the
images you need.
You can set up the VK-64's Viewing Area to show exactly
what you need to see.
Simply select thumbnail video images from a number of
cameras and drag them into the Viewing Area to create
Video Windows. Then, size and arrange these Video Windows
according to your specific requirements. You can fill
your Viewing Area with as many Video Windows of equal
size as you wish. Or, you can set up your Viewing Area
to contain a single, large Video Window and a handful
of smaller ones.
You have the added flexibility of Full Screen Function,
which lets you enlarge your viewer layout so it is full
screen. Plus, you have the option of hiding your timeline
and camera selector areas when you need to maximize
your viewing area.
VK-64 software then lets you save Video Window layouts.
Once they are saved, the Layout Sequence Function allows
you to program layouts to switch automatically according
to a schedule you specify. This function gives an operator
great flexibility; for example, you can set up two layouts
with 24 cameras windows and switch back and forth between
them according to the schedule you set up.
VK-64 software Version 1.1, you're in control of the
operating schedule of all the cameras on your network.
Set cameras to record continuously -- or by sensor event
or motion detector event for scheduled periods. You
can even set up special schedules for holidays and out-of-the-ordinary
events that have different requirements. No matter what
the calendar throws at you, the VK-64 can handle it.
The VK-64 Version 1.1 Network Video Recorder makes finding
a shot or an event fast and easy. The Viewer makes it
easy for you to find what you're looking for in a variety
of ways. You can do a search for a specific moment in
time -- choose the day, hour, minute or second to find
the right image. Or, effortlessly scroll through the
Viewer Timeline to find and select the event you want.
You can search through a list of recorded events catalogued
in the Live Events window. You can even do a search
based on the event type, priority of the event, location/zone,
or date/time. With all these options, the VK-64 is a
powerful way to find the images you need when time is
Getting the shot doesn't mean a thing if the image quality
isn't good enough. That's why VK-64 Version 1.1 software
enables video resolution as high as 640 x 480 pixels
and a frame rate as high as 30 frames per second (depending
on camera servers installed). Not only that, but video
is captured using Motion JPEG compression. That means
every frame is a complete picture -- free of any image
degradation due to inter-frame compression. When you
need the detail, you know it's there.
VK-64 Version 1.1 software gives you ultimate control
over each of the cameras on your network. You can be
sure image quality is as high as possible by adjusting
the backlight compensation to the lighting conditions
for each one of your cameras. You can adjust each camera's
sensitivity to motion -- and select the area within
the picture where motion is to be detected. VK-64 camera
controls even let you maximize your server storage space
by letting you set lower frame rates where feasible.
And, with the Control by Camera Operation Panel that
is next to each camera window, you can pan, tilt and
zoom to make sure you're seeing everything you need
With VK-64 Version 1.1, you can react quickly to difficult,
low-light conditions. The software supports the low-light
features of the VB-C50i and VB-C50iR (when connected
to the VB150). From the camera window, the operator
can activate Night Mode with or without the camera's
IR light being on. Operators can also select 3 different
levels of Back Light Compensation when they encounter
an image that is too dark due to backlighting.
The operator can also use the software's Shade Correction
function while monitoring live video or playing back
recorded images. This function increases the brightness
of shaded regions without affecting lighter regions,
letting you see what you need to see.
Match any requirement you have with a variety
of recording modes. Continuous mode ensures that you
capture all the action. A variety of different modes
ensure that your cameras are recording when they're
These modes include:
When setting more than one recording mode, you can also
set a different resolution for each mode.
(Available only with VB-C50i and VB-C50iR.)
As you add more and more cameras, viewers and servers
to your video network, VK-64 Version 1.1 software integrates
them seamlessly into your existing system. You can record
live video from up to 64 Canon network camera servers
on one storage server. Or, manage up to 3 storage servers
with one PC, for a total of 192 camera servers. No matter
how your installation expands, your VK-64 based network
can grow with it.
User names and passwords ensure controlled access to
your network system. And, as administrator, you can
give operators access to live video but limit their
access to certain Storage Servers. With VK-64 Version
1.1 software, everything's under control.
