The VB101 transmits live images via the Internet or on an Intranet! It’s never been easy to broadcast video or monitor remote locations, and control multiple cameras too.
  • MacMall Part #: 966683 
  • Manufacturer Part #: VB101  
  • UPC: 82966302053 
  • Platform: Universal 

The VB101 is a stand alone Network Camera Server that allows you to view real-time video and have camera control remotely through the use of a Internet browser. You can connect to a LAN (Local Area Network), WAN (Wide Area Network) or the Internet/Ethernet through a standard RJ-45 (Ethernet phone-jack) connection. End-users have the option to have direct dial-up through the use of an optional PCMCIA modem card (standard RJ-11 telephone jack).
Ideal for live video transmissions and remote video monitoring, the VB101 can be used with various applications to see real-time video and have camera control through the use of Canons Webview Livescope Helper Viewer (included), Java Viewer or optional Webview Livescope MV. Using the Internet standard, your web browser can be used to easily control image display and camera functions of Canons VC-C3, VC-C4 and VC-C4R pan-tilt-zoom cameras through the use of Java Applets. You can create your own web pages that incorporate the video window for end users to see video and possibly have camera control. This web page can be stored on a PCMCIA memory card (not included).
