Notes on Using the Motion Detection Function, Automatic Tracking and VBCollector
The Motion Detection Function, Automatic Tracking ( P.4-42) and VBColletor ( P.6-11) are not suited to applications where high levels of reliability are required. Therefore, we recommend that you not use these functions for monitoring or other purposes if consistently high levels of reliability are required. Canon accepts no liability whatsoever for faults resulting from the use of the Motion Detection, Automatic Tracking and VBCollector.

Maintenance

Cleaning the Equipment
1. Unplug the AC adapter from the wall outlet. 2. Carefully wipe the equipment with a soft cloth that has been moistened with water or a mild detergent.
Do not use flammable solvents such as alcohol, benzene or thinners. The use of such substances can cause a fire or electric shock.
3. Wipe with a dry cloth. 4. When you have finished, plug the AC adapter back in to the wall outlet.

Cleaning the Lens

Use a commercially available lens cleaner to remove any soiling from the lens. The auto-focus may not function correctly if the surface of the lens is dirty. Scratches on the surface of the lens will cause image defects.

Setting Up

This chapter explains how to set up the VB-C50i/VB-C50iR, run initial checks, and confirm that the cameras images are displayed correctly.

The permissible camera installation angles are 20 from the horizontal. (15 when the optional wide converter is used for the VB-C50i). The MAC address required when making network settings is shown on the bottom of the VB-C50i/VB-C50iR ( P.1-11). Please make a note of it before installing this unit.

Using a Tripod (VB-C50i)

The screw for mounting a tripod is on the bottom of the VB-C50i toward the front. Do not overtighten the mounting screw. If excessive force is used to tighten the mounting screw, camera head movement may be impeded, or other malfunctions may result. Always use a tripod mounting screw that is less than 6.0 mm (0.24 in.) in length. The use of screws 6.0 mm (0.24 in.) long or longer could damage the camera. Also, the tripod seat used should be at least 30 mm (1.18 in.) in diameter.

Using the Wide Converter (VB-C50i)
The optional Wide Converter WL-37 can be used to provide wide-angle shots (approx. 0.74 the normal focal distance). Mount the wide converter correctly so that it is level and fitted securely onto the camera. When mounted correctly, the wide converter should turn roughly 3 times before stopping.

Wide Converter

The Wide Converter WL-37 is designed specifically for the VB-C50i and cannot be used on the VB-C50iR.
The camera may not operate correctly if a wide converter other than the WL-37 is used. The permissible range of camera installation angles with the wide converter mounted on the camera is 15 from the horizontal. If you use the optional Wide Converter WL-37, set the zoom lens to the wide-angle end. If you set the zoom lens to the telephoto end, the image resolution will be affected and the auto focus might have problems. When the Wide Converter has been set for use in Camera and Video ( P.3-8), the pan and tilt values change for the three functions listed below. If the Wide Converter is to be used, pan and tilt values must be determined after the use of the Wide Converter has been set in Camera and Video. Home position setting ( P.3-10) View restrictions ( P.3-10) Preset settings ( P.3-13) When the Wide Converter has been set for use in Camera and Video (P. 3-10), the infrared light cannot be used ( P.4-70).

Setup is now complete.

You can modify the screens to show any image by providing images for the startup and disconnection screens and setting the parameters. The image size is automatically adjusted to the size specified in the video_width parameter. The display time for the specified screen at startup can also be specified. <param name=open_image value="/local/images/opening.jpg">.. 1 <param name=open_image_time value="3000">... 2 <param name=close_image value="/local/images/closing.jpg">.. specifies the file name for the startup image screen. 2 specifies the display time for the startup image screen (in milliseconds). 3 specifies the file name for the disconnection image screen.
You must use the absolute path name (name that begins with /) to specify the path for the image file displayed ( P.5-8).
At startup, the default character string that is displayed while a connection to the VB-C50i/VB-C50iR is being established is now connecting, but there is also a parameter called connect_msg for changing this character string. For additional parameters for changing display character strings, see page 5-17. If the users service time has been set ( P.3-16), screen images are not displayed outside the specified time.

If the MIME setting is not specified correctly for the Web server, you may not be able to launch the Viewer for PC. Be sure to specify the setting correctly.

Creating wvh Files

This section describes how to create the wvh file required for launching the Viewer for PC application.
1. Use a text editor or similar program to create a new text file and type the following type of code in the file: (Example) 192.168.100.192.168.100.wvhttp:192.168.100.1 80
* The underlined portion is a sample IP address. Enter the actual IP address that was set on the VBC50i/VB-C50iR ( P.3-6).
The first line gives the IP address (or host name) of the VB-C50i/VB-C50iR and the TCP port number used for the video transmission. The default setting is 65310 ( P.3-18). The default setting will be used if no particular value is specified. The second line gives the IP address (or host name) of the VB-C50i/VB-C50iR and the TCP port number used for the camera control. The default setting is 65311 ( P.3-18). The default setting will be used if no particular value is specified. The third line gives the setting for the Viewer for PC to use HTTP protocol. After wvhttp:, type in the IP address of the VB-C50i/VB-C50iR and 80 as the HTTP port number. As a result of this, you will be able to view video from the VB-C50i/VB-C50iR through firewalls.
Instead of an IP address, you can also type in <_I_P_A_D_D_R_> ( P.5-9). Example: <_I_P_A_D_D_R_> 65310 <_I_P_A_D_D_R_> 65311 wvhttp:<_I_P_A_D_D_R_> 80
2. After you save the text file and quit the text editor program, create a wvh file by changing the file name and extension.
Be sure to add the.wvh extension, as in WebView.wvh. Viewer for PC supports WebView Livescope protocol and HTTP protocol. WebView Livescope protocol: Cannot be viewed through firewalls. This protocol is primarily for clients who are connected directly to the Internet. HTTP protocol: In general, this protocol is used with Web browsers. By using this protocol, clients inside firewalls can view video by penetrating fire walls. The Viewer for Java also uses this protocol.
