Canon Announces the CR-N100, a New Indoor 4K Remote Camera that is Versatile
for Visual Production, Online Meetings and Livestreaming of Lectures
SINGAPORE, 13 September 2023 — Canon announced today the launch in Asia1 of the CR-N100 indoor 4K remote camera, the newest addition in the company’s lineup of remote camera systems.
The CR-N100 is an indoor remote camera with a compact body2 and pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) capabilities, allowing it to be easily installed in such spaces as meeting rooms and classrooms. As online meetings, lectures, events and seminars become increasingly common, there is a growing need for livestreaming and video recording technology. With the addition of the CR-N100 to Canon’s lineup of remote cameras, customers now have greater choice of products that support a wide range of uses, from professional video production to video content use by enterprises, local governments and educational institutions.
The CR-N100 features key devices that leverage Canon’s history of professional camera technology development, including a 1/2.3" CMOS sensor and a DIGIC DV6 image processing platform that make possible 4K/30P high-image-quality video capture. In addition, the camera is equipped with a 20x optical zoom lens with a focal length of 29.3 mm - 601 mm3, supporting image capture from wide-angle to telephoto for various scenarios. The camera also includes four "scene modes" — Portrait, Sports, Low-light and Spotlight — which users can choose from to create the best possible visual expression based on their subject.
Users can construct a complete, versatile production environment thanks to the CR-N100’s support for XC Protocol, Canon’s proprietary extended IP4 designed to control Canon’s video production devices, RTMP5 which enables livestreaming, NDI®|HX6 which supports live visual production and the SRT Protocol7, which is widely used thanks to its high image quality, low-latency and secure video transmission.
The video interface of the CR-N100 supports IP, HDMI and the USB Video Class (UVC) transmission standard. This allows the CR-N100 to be used as a camera for web conference systems, simply by connecting it to a PC via USB. The camera also supports Canon’s free-of-charge Multi-camera Management Application8 that enables batch setting configuration and control of up to 200 cameras, making possible efficient operation of large-scale systems in such environments as enterprises, local governments and educational institutions.
The CR-N100 (white and black colour) will go on sale in Singapore in early October.
Furthermore, users can enjoy the Add-On Applications System which provides access to new video production feature9 auto tracking. The auto tracking application will give users the ability to automatically pan, tilt, and zoom to track moving subjects.
