Excels at challenging subject recognition routinely missed by standard IP cameras



Toshiba Surveillance & IP Network Video, a business unit of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., announced the availability of the IK-WB30A IP network camera, a smart, cost-effective match for today’s detail-sensitive IP surveillance environments.

It excels at challenging subject recognition, such as capturing legible license plates or distinguishing facial features, that are routinely missed by standard IP cameras.

The latest addition to the company's expanding network-centric line, the IK-WB30A is the highest resolution Toshiba IP camera introduced to date. It is also the first Toshiba camera to offer Electronic Pan-Tilt-Zoom (ePTZ), a new technology that transmits thumbnail images of entire fields of view to allow the camera operator to instantly move to a target region for close-up shots.

Exceptional image quality is a given with the IK-WB30A. Its 1600 x 1200 resolution delivers six times the number of pixels of a VGA (640 x 480) camera, making it possible to replace two or more VGA cameras with a single IK-WB30A to save on equipment costs and bandwidth usage. True Day-Night imaging empowers it to act as a high-resolution color camera during daylight hours and switch over to an IR night vision camera when the sun goes down.

The IK-WB30A streams both MPEG-4 and MJPEG video simultaneously at up 30 fps. Each stream can be configured with individual resolution, quality, and frame rate settings to conserve bandwidth. In addition, the IK-WB30A features PoE (Power over Ethernet) and a built-in slot for SD cards to record directly at the camera. It also supports two-way audio for both listening and communicating with the camera's remote position.
