In addition to their exceptional 1.3 megapixel imaging, the networked Canon IP security cameras at the Montalbán Theatre also feature Canon’s Remote Adjustment Function, which enables integrators and installers to remotely change the viewpoint, zoom, and focus of these fixed cameras after installation remotely from any Internet-connected PC, without removing the camera’s dome cover. Viewpoint adjustments to the image-capture area of these stationary cameras include their pan, tilt, and rotation angles. Access to the camera with a ladder or bucket truck becomes unnecessary, which eliminates the time and expense of on-site adjustments involving labor, transportation, and equipment. This feature is especially handy for large installations of multiple Canon IP security cameras.
“Using Canon megapixel IP security cameras with the Remote Adjustment Feature saved us a good several hours per camera,” noted Rich Buchanan, account executive at Post Alarm Systems, which installed the cameras at the Montalbán Theatre. “I can go down in front of a web page and make some tweaks in five seconds that would have taken me at least an hour to do if I was already on-site. That’s a huge savings that adds up over and over again. The Remote Adjustment Function is definitely going to equate to happier customers, and having a happy customer is definitely going to equate to more referrals and recommendations of Canon products.”
Yet another built-in feature of all Canon megapixel IP security cameras that the Montalbán Foundation Theatre is also taking full advantage of is video analytics, which assists in detecting abandoned, moving, and removed objects. User-adjustable in terms of detection area, sensitivity, and duration, these analytics can trigger alarms. In addition, camera analytics can alert for abnormal sound levels and tampering that may indicate a camera is being vandalized.
“The Canon megapixel IP security cameras at the Montalbán Foundation Theatre are indispensable,” Smith concluded. “The image quality detail, color accuracy, corner-to-corner focus, and low-light performance they deliver are amazing. The system gives us the confidence that we can close the doors, walk away, and know that at any moment we can access our servers and the images that we are capturing 24/7. Canon is at the center of the digital revolution, and it has made high-quality imaging far more accessible.”
