The CR-N100 PTZ Camera produces outstanding image quality and is equipped with powerful features and functions in a cost-effective and compact form factor that can easily be placed in a variety of settings. Featuring a Canon 1/2.3" CMOS image sensor capable of 4K UHD video capture at 30 fps, or up to 60 fps in Full HD mode, coupled with a 4K 20x optical zoom lens, the CR-N100 is a versatile tool for that can be utilized in many industries including House of Worship, Education, Broadcast, Corporate, Events and more.

1/2.3 Type CMOS Sensor

The CR-N100 features a Canon 1/2.3 Type 4K UHD CMOS image sensor capable of 4K UHD video capture at 30p up to 60fps in Full HD, making the PTZ camera a strong contender for professional productions.

DIGIC DV6 Image Processor

Canon's DIGIC DV 6 Image Processor is essential in providing high image quality, advanced performance and convenient operability to the CR-N100. This advanced core technology component provides the image-processing power and speed that enables features such as 4K UHD video acquisition and precise Hybrid AF.

Over Sampling HD Processing

The full HD recording (over sampling HD processing) takes full advantage of the image information acquired by the 4K sensor to generate beautiful high-definition full HD video. This helps content creators produce stunningly detailed FHD video when utilizing the CR-N100.

Hybrid AF

The CR-N100 is equipped with "Hybrid AF" – an auto focus system that combines high-precision contrast AF technology and the high-speed phase-difference AF technology to confirm auto focus from the camera. This hybrid auto focus system helps achieve auto focus faster and more reliably compared to contrast auto focus alone.

Canon 4K UHD Lens

The CR-N100 features a 20x optical zoom lens and exhibits a wide viewing angle of 65.6 degrees** (horizontal). At the wide end, the 29.3 mm* lens is capable of capturing extensive scenes in tight shooting spaces such as indoor events for impressive wide shots. The camera utilizes aspheric lens elements to achieve 4K image quality while minimizing various aberrations over the entire zoom range.

Furthermore, the lens structure of the CR-N100 enables real-time responsiveness in a three-dimensional space, supporting optical image stabilization, which helps keep the image capture stable by minimizing vibration.

High-precision Drive Mechanism for Smooth, Responsive PTZ Performance

The CR-N100 features a PT (Pan, Tilt) drive mechanism that enables multi-step speed changes from high to low speeds, providing smooth PT in tandem with the zoom. This can be linked with optional remote controllers and applications to support many kinds of video production with a single operator.

The CR-N100 exhibits a variable Pan speed of .2° - 300°/second and variable Tilt speed of .2° - 180°/second.

Equipped with a Tally Lamp

The CR-N100 is equipped with a tally lamp located on the front of the lens section that can illuminate red when the camera is shooting. This provides clear visual indications for staff and performers to know which camera is shooting live.

Scene Modes for Impressive Video Expressions

There are four types of Scene Modes: Portrait mode, which exhibits a blurred background while subject is in sharp focus, Sports mode, which enhances capture of moving objects, Low Light mode, which enhances capture of bright images even in dark places, and Spotlight mode, which enhances capture of beautiful images of spotlighted objects.

By selecting a Scene Mode, capture can be performed without having to adjust multiple settings within the Camera menu which aids a speedy setup and configuration allowing the operator to start shooting with impressive image expression.

Built-in NDI|HX and SRT Support

The CR-N100 supports multiple professional protocols for ease of integration. NDI|HX is built-in to the camera and provides high image quality, low latency, and ease of implementation. SRT is also built-in to the camera that helps provide high-quality video over unpredictable public networks.

Support for Canon XC Protocol

The XC Protocol is an IP protocol that controls Canon video production equipment. With XC Protocol, the CR-N100 can be remotely controlled to support a wide range of applications, which includes sports, music, live events, lecture recording, corporate meeting rooms, video production, and more.

Standard Protocol

The CR-N100 supports the Standard Protocol to remotely control the camera via IP. When connecting a Standard Protocol compatible remote controller to the camera over IP or serial (RS-422) the camera can be operated remotely and shooting settings can be adjusted by utilizing an optional remote controller.

The Standard Protocol is widely used in video production, broadcasting and many other markets, is regarded as an industry standard, and is suitable for operation within existing workflows.

Remote Camera Control Application

The Remote Camera Control Application can be utilized to control the CR-N100. The Remote Camera Control Application is a Windows / Macintosh application for centralized control of multiple cameras. It is possible to operate up to nine cameras and display videos at the same time - achieving a "multi-camera operation".

At a video production or broadcasting site, an operator can select a camera from the videos displayed on the "Connected Camera List", within the application and operate it from the "Camera Control Area" in the control panel of the software. The software is included and can be installed immediately without having to prepare a hardware controller in advance making it easy to use for the operator while creating an effective one-person operation.

Webcam Driver

Turn the CR-N100 into a super webcam with Canon's Webcam Driver. The Webcam Driver is a virtual USB driver that allows the CR-N100 to be used as a powerful webcam over a network. The software has many advantages such as, automatic camera detection, up to 4K 30P video output, embedded audio (AAC-LC), supports up to 5 cameras and is free of charge. Furthermore, the PTZ camera is not restricted to the short distance of USB cable, which allows for more flexibility in installation. Whether you are connecting to a video conference system, lecture capture or other platform, take advantage of Canon's CR-N100 with Webcam Driver for the ultimate PTZ webcam experience.

Multi-Camera Management Application

Ideal for use in large-scale camera systems, the Multi-Camera Management Application (MCMA) supports up to 200 individual compatible PTZ, professional video, and cinema cameras. The MCMA streamlines the registration of usernames, passwords and IP addresses to a camera, and registration of cameras to the RC-IP1000 (sold separately) by executing these procedures all at once, instead of individually to each camera. This allows for a rapid initial configuration of large-scale systems with minimal workload. What’s more, the status of all connected cameras can be viewed in a convenient list that enables easier execution of such operations as updating firmware, restarting and initialization.

Add-On Application Support

The Add-On Application System will enable the installation of paid applications directly onto the camera. These applications can then be run without the need for a computer, simplifying operations and set-up.

The Auto Tracking Application enables the camera to automatically track the speaker or other specified persons during commercial presentations, lectures and other events. Because visual analysis is performed in-camera, the system achieves excellent tracking capability. In addition to framing a person in the shot, the camera, aided by its high-performance pan/tilt mechanism and the automatic tracking application, can smoothly capture movements of people with satisfying quality for video production.
