VIETNAM, 1 December 2021 – Canon announced today the launch of the CR-X300 remote 4K outdoor camera, a new IP  remote camera system for outdoor video production.
The CR-X300 supports a wide range of communications standards and realizes strong protection from environmental factors, making it an ideal remote PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) camera system for video capture in such outdoor scenarios as sports broadcasts, wild animal observation, theme parks and event spaces. In recent years, there has been growing demand for video content, including large amounts of content created and streamed on-location. By expanding its lineup of outdoor and indoor remote camera systems, Canon helps contribute to more efficient and less labor-intensive visual production workflows.
Equipped with the key devices that leverage video processing technologies cultivated through Canon’s history of developing professional video cameras—including a 1/2.3-inch and a DIGIC DV6 image processing platform—the new camera system makes possible high-image-quality 4K / 30P / 4:2:2 / 10bit video recording. In addition, the CR-X300 features a 20x optical zoom lens with a 29.3 – 601 mm equivalent  focal length for video capture of various scenarios from wide-angle to super-telephoto range.
The CR-X300 supports Canon’s XC Protocol for IP control of visual production equipment, enabling it, alongside the company’s Cinema EOS system  and CR-N500 (released in May 2021) and CR-N300 (released in June 2021), to be operated via such means as dedicated multi-camera control devices and PC software. The system is also compatible with RTMP  for livestreaming and NDI | HX protocol that supports live visual production, thus enabling users to flexibly build their own production environments.
The camera is resistant to dust and moisture, satisfying international IP65 standards for protection against water and other foreign substances. In addition, it is standard-equipped with a lens wiper and an aluminum die-cast housing, helping it stand up to use in outdoor environments exposed to strong wind and rain. What’s more, the CR-X300 is compatible with the POE++ standard, enabling the camera to be powered and controlled by a single LAN cable and thereby helping to reduce cost and labor required for installation.
