IRVINE, CA, January 23, 2012 -- Toshiba Surveillance & IP Video, a business unit of Toshiba America Information, Systems, Inc., is bringing wireless ease to indoor video surveillance with its IK-WB16A-W two-megapixel IP camera equipped with 802.11n wireless connectivity.
Megapixel resolution enables a single IK-WB16A-W to wirelessly capture overviews of very large indoor areas, such as a grocery, shopping mall or casino, as well as high-detail situations including close-ups on items being checked out by a cashier.
The camera's wireless flexibility and versatile Pan, Tilt, and digital Zoom (PTZ) gives installers greater freedom to mount it wherever detailed video surveillance is required, including areas not wired with Ethernet cabling. Once installed, the camera's live video can be viewed and camera movements controlled by either a network linked PC, notebook, tablet or smart phone.
The IK-WB16A-W supports simultaneous quad streaming of MPEG-4 and MJPEG video in a variety of resolutions to provide both higher quality and optimal bandwidth efficient compression formats. A maximum of ten clients can simultaneously access live video plus record video 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. An advanced 1/3.2" CMOS progressive scan sensor delivers flicker-free, ultra-sharp color video up to 30 frames-per-second without picture blur. User-selectable resolutions range from megapixel 1600 x 1200 to cell-phone size 176 x 144 pixels. There is also a 4X digital zoom to take advantage of higher resolution settings.
The IK-WB16A-W package includes free versions of Toshiba camera recording software to enable:
- video recording, exporting and uploading;
- motion detection and alarm recording;
- auto pan (±175°) and tilt (+90° to -35°);
- and 2-way audio communications.
Camera licenses are included with no re-occurring annual software upgrade fees, making the IK-WB16A-W the most cost-efficient wireless 2MP camera on the market today. The K-WB16A-W ships fully assembled, ready to install and is backed by a three-year warranty. Optional mounts and housings allow the camera to be safely installed outdoors.
