The megapixel VB-M40 Pan/Tilt/Zoom Network Camera brings a new level of image quality and performance to the security camera market.This camera boasts a Canon 20x Optical Zoom Lens which is not only the smallest in its class, but also produces images with little aberration. This new lens was also designed to maximize the cameras low light performance, allowing the VB-M40 to provide color video down to .03 Lux and black/white video down to 0.001 Lux.

The cameras 1.3 Megapixel CMOS sensor provides images with four times the detail of a VGA security camera, yet it can be streamed with low bandwidth utilization and disk space usage thanks to the H.264 Codec.
