Canon Europe Launches ME20F-SHN

News Image
Canon Europe has released details of a lowlight network camera – the ME20F-SHN.

As a sister product to the ME20F-SH, the ME20F-SHN features network capability, further enhancing the company's Multiple Purpose camera line-up in producing full colour and Full HD resolution images in limited light scenarios.

Equipped with a 2.26MP Full Frame 35mm CMOS sensor and DIGIC DV 4 processor, the ME20F-SHN delivers sharp, low noise, Full HD colour video in extreme low light conditions. The sensor's pixels and readout circuitry use Canon proprietary technology to achieve reduced noise and high sensitivity. With a maximum ISO in excess of 4 million (+75db), which delivers low-light sensitivity, the ME20F-SHN can capture subjects illuminated with less than 0.0005 lux. Even greater detail can be captured in low-light environments by removing the IR cut filter when shooting in infrared mode.

The network camera offers Canon Log and Wide DR from a Custom Picture menu, which allows a wide dynamic range of up to 12 Stops (800%), delivering images across a range of lighting scenarios. The Custom Picture menu has been upgraded, with the addition of the Crisp Img function, which obtains sharp images in well-lit environments and low noise image under low light conditions.

Featuring Ethernet, 3G/HD-SDI and HDMI ports, the ME20F-SHN caters for a variety of video outputs based on users' application requirements. For local monitoring, the ME20F-SHN has 3G/HD-SDI and HDMI ports, while an Ethernet connection enables remote operation of camera settings, monitoring and recording via web browsers, mobile devices or other video management software. The microSD card slot supports record and playback directly from a microSD card. For unmanned surveillance, the six built-in video analytics functions and Alarm I/O interface enables automated recording and output to external devices triggered by video motion detection and alarm input.

With the Area-specific Data Size Reduction (ADSR) function, the ME20F-SHN enables users to capture detail in selected areas of interest while reducing bit-rates in the other areas of the image to save network bandwidth. For ease of integration into existing video surveillance systems, the ME20F-SHN supports a range of video management software through Canon WebView and ONVIF protocols.

In addition, operators can select the perfect lens for each shooting and equipment scenario, taking aspects such as angle of view and level of brightness into account. Featuring an EF mount with Cinema Lock, the ME20F-SHN is compatible with a range of lenses across the Canon line-up, including zooms, primes and selected Cine Servo lenses for greater control. With PoE+ support, the data transmission via Ethernet and power supply are provided with a single LAN cable.
