New NVR Brings Toshiba Versatility, Quality, and Value to Megapixel Camera Recording

IRVINE, CA, May 15, 2009 - Toshiba Surveillance & IP Network Video, a business unit of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today announced the availability of its next generation of Internet-based network video recorders (NVR). With a feature-set highlighted by a space-saving 3U chassis and support for 32 IP cameras, the new Toshiba IPS Series makes it amazingly simple to create a networked video surveillance environment by delivering the ease-of-use and reliability that marks all Toshiba products.

Toshiba IPS Series NVRs are fully compatible with Toshiba IP network cameras and those of other leading manufacturers including AXIS®, Sony® and Panasonic®. Cameras are recorded at their encoded resolution, including super high-resolution megapixel cameras, without degradation in video quality. On-board software provides security administrators with simultaneous recording, playback and remote streaming of live video images retrievable on their remote or local PC, along with comprehensive search capabilities of archives. Microsoft® Windows® XP is embedded as the operating system.

To save space for other critical peripherals Toshiba IPS Series NVRs feature a sleek, black 3U chassis (5.8" x 17.25" x 19.5") that mounts into any standard rack. In addition to a 32-channel version, IPR Series NVRs are available in 16- and 8-channel versions with optional 500 GB, 1TB or 2TB hard-drive storage. Equipped with the Intel® Core(TM) 2 Quad 2 GHz processor, IPS NVRs efficiently handle multiple megapixel cameras simultaneously, enabling the crystal-clear recording of these bandwidth-demanding devices.

The IPS is exceptionally flexible by design. It lets users define settings on a per camera basis including their resolution, motion detection, alarm recording, and frames-per-second (fps) up to 30 fps per camera. Video can be recorded from both local and global cameras via the Internet, and is stored using efficient MJPEG compression to optimize video storage space. In addition, cameras featuring PAN/TILT/ZOOM can be remotely controllable by the IPS, bringing added versatility throughout the surveillance operation.

"With simplified user setup, the ability to coexist with a variety of other network devices, and powerful processing speeds, our new IPS delivers a real-time solution that makes it possible for locations as diverse as shopping centers or single-family homes to receive the benefits of network video surveillance," said Sergio Collazo, Director of Sales and Marketing, Toshiba Surveillance & IP Network Video. "IPS technology is a natural complement to our popular networking cameras for capturing, recording and distributing IP surveillance video."
