MELVILLE, N.Y. -- September 24, 2013

Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, will exhibit its
product line of Full HD, Megapixel and Standard Definition IP Video Security
cameras at ASIS 2013, held September 24-26, 2013, at McCormick Place (booth #
377) in Chicago, Ill. Designed to deliver a wealth of end-user benefits to
various professional security markets, Canon’s eight different IP Security
cameras include Pan-Tilt-Zoom, Fixed Dome and Stationary “Box” Style models.

Visitors at the Canon ASIS 2013 exhibit will have the opportunity to view
demonstrations of the precision optics and exceptional image quality of Canon
IP Security cameras at four specially designed demo stations. A special
demonstration of the low-light capabilities of Canon’s IP Security cameras
will display how Canon cameras capture color and black & white video even
better than the human eye can see. Also present at the exhibit will be
information on Integration Partners and a wide range of third-party Enclosure
Solutions, including housings, domes and mounting brackets.

The following models from the Canon IP Video Security camera product line will
be on display at the show:

Full HD IP Security

• The VB-H41 Pan-Tilt-Zoom Camera, featuring a Canon 20x optical zoom lens
with 12x digital zoom, a wide 60.4º angle of view and an advanced auto focus
algorithm for accurate focusing even in low-light, haze, and other challenging
environments. With a built-in electronic image stabilization feature that
minimizes blur that can be caused by vibration in the installation base, the
VB-H41 can capture potentially crucial image detail in low-illumination
environments.

• The VB-H610VE Fixed Vandal-Resistant Dome Camera, featuring a clear
polycarbonate dome mounted to an aluminum body. This unified enclosure has a
dust- and water-resistance rating of IP66 and is designed to absorb violent
impacts, or for use in areas that may be subject to abuse, such as
correctional facilities, public transportation centers, shopping malls and
schools. An optional heater allows the camera to be used in temperatures down
to -22º F. The VB-H610VE also features a built-in genuine Canon 111º
wide-angle 3x optical zoom lens for clear, high-quality images and can capture
potentially crucial image detail in low-illumination environments.

• The VB-H610D Fixed Dome Camera features a built-in genuine Canon wide-angle
3x optical zoom lens with an ultra-wide 111º angle of view, making it ideal
for use in areas with severe space restrictions such as stairways, narrow
halls and elevators, as well as vast, wide-open spaces such as shopping malls
or factory floors.

Both the Canon VB-H610VE and VB-H610D IP Security Cameras also include a
Remote Adjustment Function to change their angle of view – including pan,
tilt, rotation, zoom, and focus – from any remote Internet-connected PC,
thereby virtually eliminating the time and expense of on-site adjustments
involving labor, transportation and equipment.

• The VB-H710F Fixed “Box” Camera provides a built-in genuine Canon wide-angle
3x optical zoom lens with an ultra-wide 112.6º angle of view. A feature of
this camera is its built-in motorized focus and zoom function, which enables
users to remotely adjust those settings from any Internet-connected PC.

The two proprietary Canon DIGIC processors in each of Canon’s Full HD IP
Security cameras include the Canon DIGIC DV III image processor, which
provides superior image quality, vivid color reproduction, low noise, and
smooth gradations and the Canon DIGIC NET II network video processor, which
transmits H.264 and M-JPEG simultaneously at 1920 x 1080 up to 30 frames per
second.

Megapixel IP Security

The following Canon Megapixel IP Security cameras will be on display at ASIS.
They feature a 1.3-Megapixel CMOS image sensor and a Canon DIGIC NET processor
for simultaneous transmission of H.264 and M-JPEG at 1920 x 960 up to 30
frames per second.

• The VB-M40 Pan-Tilt-Zoom Camera, featuring a Canon 20x optical zoom lens
with 4x digital zoom, a wide 55.4º angle of view, advanced auto focus and
electronic image stabilization.

• The VB-M600VE Fixed Vandal-Resistant IP66-rated Dome Camera can absorb
violent impacts due to the mounting of the camera’s lens in a damping
mechanism. This unique Canon aspherical 3x optical zoom lens delivers an
ultra-wide 101.2º angle of view, making it ideal for use in areas with severe
space restrictions. An optional heater allows the VB-M600VE camera to be used
in temperatures down to -22º F.

• The VB-M600D Fixed Dome Camera also includes a Canon aspherical 3x optical
zoom lens with an ultra-wide 101.2º angle of view and special lens-coating
technology enabling it to produce sharp, high-quality sharp images with
minimal distortion and flare.

Intelligent Features

These Canon Full HD and Megapixel IP Security cameras include built-in video
analytics to assist monitoring personnel in identifying potentially crucial
image details. This includes moving, removed and abandoned object detection.
The four Full HD IP Security cameras also offer passing (or “tripwire”)
detection. User-adjustable in terms of detection characteristics, such as
sensitivity, area and duration, video analytics can engage configured alarms
and notification functions. All eight cameras also feature camera analytics,
which include detection of camera tampering and sound-level detection that may
indicate vandalism or sabotage.

Additional features shared by each of these security cameras include a privacy
mask function to block sensitive locations (such as ATM keypads or computer
monitors) from the cameras’ view while still allowing for a full range of
motion. The cameras feature two-way audio connectors for bi-directional sound
communication, built-in management tools and a web viewer function for remote
video monitoring by authorized users on supported web browsers.

Standard Definition

• The VB-C60 (640 x 480) Resolution Pan-Tilt-Zoom IP Security Camera will also
be on display at the show. It features a built-in 40x optical zoom with a 56°
wide angle lens, a wide panning range (± 170°), auto focus, image
stabilization, and a proprietary Canon DIGIC NET Processor for simultaneous
M-JPEG and MPEG-4 video output at up to 30 frames per second.
