VB-S31D and VB-S800D: discreet indoor Full HD Minidome Network Security Cameras

VB-S31D and VB-S800D: discreet indoor Full HD Minidome Network Security Cameras

The VB-S31D and VB-S800D are high quality PT and Fixed Minidome cameras with a wide angle of view, boasting proven Canon imaging technology with a powerful combination of exceptional low light performance and Full HD resolution thanks to dual DIGIC processors.

Who are they for?

The VB-S31D and VB-S800D offer the perfect indoor solution for business, education and leisure use. Ideal for shops, schools or recreational facilities, these small Minidome units are packed with Canon’s latest imaging technology.

Rather than having one processor doing all the work, the VB-S31D and VB-S800D feature dual processors. With DIGIC DV III and DIGIC NET II, each step of the imaging process – capturing, processing, encoding and transmitting – is performed seamlessly. The dual processors enable outstanding low light performance, even in difficult lighting conditions, offering a true Day/Night solution.

Key features

  • PT Minidome and Fixed Minidome designs.
  • Full HD at 30fps for clear, detailed images.
  • CMOS sensor delivers high performance in low-light.
  • Wide angle f/1.6 Canon lens offering a 95° angle of view.
  • Multi-streaming of Motion JPEG and H.264 video.
  • Strong analytic feature set.
  • Auto Smart Shade Control (SSC).
  • Direct recording/playback from MicroSD card.
  • Compact size at just 120mm in diameter and 54mm in height.
  • ONVIF v2.2 and Profile S compliant.


The ultra-compact VB-S31D PT Minidome and VB-S800D Fixed Minidome Network Security Cameras feature Full HD (1920x1080) resolution at 30fps. A CMOS sensor delivers impressive image quality without colour bleeding or blurred lines. Auto Smart Shade Control (SSC) optimises exposure to improve highlights and correct dark areas in backlit scenes or low-light conditions, offering a true Day/Night operation.


The cameras’ new ultra-compact wide-angle lens offers a 95° angle of view. In addition, the VB-S31D includes Pan and Tilt (PT) capabilities, so it is simple to move the camera to programmed pre-set positions. The wide angle and low distortion of the high quality f/1.6 Canon lens delivers more light to the camera’s sensor – achieving brighter and better-defined images.


To achieve high durability, it is necessary to prevent internal damage to the cable that connects the lens and camera body. The VB-S31D uses a small gauge coaxial cable with excellent noise proofing characteristics. Even in an ultra-compact size, there is enough space allocated for the cable to bend to prevent any wire damage.


Canon is a full member of ONVIF – the industry forum dedicated to the development of a global IP-based physical security interface standard. Compliance with the latest ONVIF v2.2 and Profile S has enabled Canon to create a solution with ONVIF-compliant video management software. Canon also supports seamless integration through the use of the Canon network camera SDK and HTTP protocol specification.


Intelligent Functions aid operators in identifying alarming situations, by analysing differences between different areas. It is possible to use up to 15 functions in parallel on one camera. A choice of five different Intelligent Functions includes moving object detection, abandoned object detection, removed object detection, camera tampering detection and passing detection. Detected activity can be fed back to the recording platform, uploaded to an FTP server, sent via an email alert or recorded directly onto the MicroSD card.

Normally, changes in light conditions interrupt a camera’s analytics – but the new Canon range automatically resets within 20 seconds of detecting a significant increase or decrease in brightness. This ensures minimal interruption to any running analytics.


Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology with IEEE802.3af Compliance allows the use of a single LAN cable to both power the camera and transfer video and audio data when connected to a PoE midspan or switch.


The dual image processors – DIGIC DV III and DIGIC NET II – enable seamless capturing, processing, encoding and transmitting of images. The internal programming has been re-engineered to deliver multiple H.264 and/or MJPEG streams in HD or lower resolutions. In addition to multi-streaming, the cameras can also do simultaneous streaming. The H.264 encoder creates high-quality and high compression video, for smooth surveillance in a range of environments. Meanwhile, enhanced noise reduction (NR) control and colour reproduction gives visible colour even in low-light conditions.


The VB-S31D and VB-S800D feature an improved Auto Smart Shade Control, which automatically selects the optimum exposure level. It helps the lenses to compensate dark areas at the same time as maintaining the bright areas. This makes the cameras easier to use and improves the quality of highlights with corrected dark areas in back-lit scenes or in difficult lighting conditions.
