Toshiba Surveillance & IP Video is now offering the IK-WB16A-W two-megapixel IP camera. Equipped with IEEE 802.11n wireless connectivity and versatile Pan, Tilt, and digital Zoom, the camera gives security system installers greater freedom to mount wherever detailed video surveillance is required, including areas not wired with coaxial or CAT cabling.
Key to the camera’s image clarity is an advanced 1/3.2″ CMOS progressive scan sensor that delivers flicker-free, ultra-sharp color video up to 30 frames-per-second without blur. User-selectable resolutions range from megapixel 1600 x 1200 to cell-phone size 176 x 144 pixels. There is also 4x digital zoom to take advantage of higher resolution settings, along with motion detection and alarm recording; auto pan (±175°) and tilt (+90° to -35°); and 2-way audio communications.
The IK-WB16A-W supports simultaneous quad streaming of MPEG-4 and MJPEG video in a variety of resolutions to provide either higher quality or optimal bandwidth efficient compression formats. A maximum of ten clients can simultaneously access live video plus record directly onto a PC hard-drive or NVR. Additionally, the camera features a Micro SD card slot for local storage in the event of connection failure or tampering. Compared to competitors’ two-megapixel cameras, the IK-WB16A-W is a far greater value. Not only does it cost less, but it includes free software for video recording, exporting and uploading. Camera licenses are included with no re-occurring annual software upgrade fees, making the IK-WB16A-W the most cost-efficient camera on the market today.
Toshiba also offers a non-wireless version of the IK-WB16A-W equipped with PoE. Its product number is IK-WB16A. Both cameras ship fully assembled ready to install and are backed by a three-year warranty.
