Toshiba Launches First Bullet Cameras for Video Surveillance
IRVINE, CA, March 17, 2009 -- Toshiba Surveillance & IP Video Products, a business unit of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today launched its new IK-7100A Series of day/night color bullet cameras, the company's first such introduction in this high-demand video surveillance category. The two cameras that make up the series offer outstanding performance by incorporating several innovative features that improve imaging prowess and simplify installation.
Boasting a weather-resistant IP66 rated metal housing, the new IK-7100A cameras are purpose-engineered for outdoor video security, although they are equally effective indoors. Hardened metal construction of the housing resists corrosion, bad weather and vandalism, while 16 long-range, high-intensity infrared LEDs enhance the performance of the camera in dark conditions where object detection and subject recognition is critical. The 850nm LEDs are invisible to the human eye yet illuminate a clear image at over 30 feet in total darkness.
The two cameras have identical feature-sets except for lenses. The IK-7100A-3.6 has a 3.6mm lens for a wider sight range, while the IK-7100A-8 has a 8.0mm lens for mid-range applications. Both offer a powerful combination of infrared LEDs and Day/Night functionality with high resolution 480 TVL to maximize performance in exceptional low light. In addition, Digital Signal Processing was incorporated into the cameras to reduce the degradation of images in lower light. By ensuring lower interference, Digital Signal Processing provides better video quality and greater storage capacity on DVRs.
Immediately available, Toshiba IK-7100A cameras ship fully assembled with included mounting brackets. For information on Toshiba surveillance solutions, visit www.toshibasecurity.com.
