Toshiba Surveillance & IP Video, a business unit of Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., unveils its IK-WD14A dome camera featuring full HD 1080p resolution providing the sharpest video detail available.
Providing such detail, the IK-WD14A increases the likelihood of identifying facial features or license plates making the camera a contender for leadership in the IP network video surveillance market, Toshiba says. The camera also offers built-in SR IR LEDs to assist image capture in near complete darkness, along with a wide dynamic range for challenging back lighting environments.
“High-definition is the most prominent trend in the IP camera space,” says Sergio Collazo, Toshiba Surveillance & IP Video’s director of sales and marketing. “The IK-WD14A is a natural extension of Toshiba’s IT culture and its strong history of innovation in consumer high-definition video,” he said.
Designed to optimize image quality and provide maximum network efficiency, the IK-WD14A offers simultaneous H.264/MPEG4/JPEG streaming for automatic bandwidth prioritization, enabling seamless full frame (1920 x 1080) video at up to 30 frames-per-second for both live viewing and recording. Imaging performance is further enhanced by the camera’s one-touch 3x optical zoom, remote focus, and broad angle pan and tilt, the company says.
Because it is ONVIF compliant the IK-WD14A allows for easy integration into existing network infrastructures, and assures future-proof systems, as well as overall reduced cost of ownership, Toshiba says. Motion detection, day/night imaging and anti-camera tampering are highlights of the cameras’ “video intelligence,” according to the company.
