Toshiba Launches Easy-to-Install Vandal Resistant Dome Camera

IRVINE, CA, MARCH 1, 2005 - Surveillance cameras designed to monitor criminals often turn into the target of their attacks. That's why Toshiba has introduced its new IK-VR01A, a vandal-resistant dome camera featuring a rugged metal housing that withstands heavy impact and tampering, plus is IP66 rated for water- and dust-resistance.

Ideal for tackling vandal-prone areas in malls, airports, schools, public buildings or prisons, the Toshiba IK-VR01A offers security professionals sharp color video in a variety of lighting environments. Key features of the imaging system include a powerful 1/3-inch CCD that delivers 480 TV lines of resolution, a high-quality Vari Focal lens, advanced day/night (color cut) imaging to enable 24/7 surveillance, lowlight sensitivity to 0.4Lux, and a clean 50dB signal-to-noise ratio that optimizes its performance with a digital video recorder.

Installers will appreciate the camera's stylish appearance, compact (6.7 x 5.8 inches) footprint, modifiable mounts and domes, and simple analog connectivity. The labor saving mounting enables fast, hassle-free installation virtually anywhere, including into a wide variety of electrical junction boxes.
