Security professionals will achieve new levels of remote networking performance with Toshiba’s new IK-WB21A network security camera. The IK-WB21A offers ultra-fast Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) capability, razor-sharp SXVGA resolution (1280 x 960), and a wider field-of-view than standard TCP/IP cameras. Able to connect to a network by 10/100T-Base Ethernet, the IK-WB21A's integral web server transmits its video with audio signals at rates approaching 30 frames per second by means of highly efficient M-JPEG compression streams. Using only a standard web browser, you can remotely view camera images. And you can remotely control the PTZ and multiple presets via a desktop PC, notebook or Internet-ready cellphone on a LAN, WAN, Intranet or the Internet without additional software or plug-ins. Multiple clients can simultaneously access the same IK-WB21A on a network without any degradation in frame rate. Plus, the Toshiba IK-WB21A features a slot for a removable SD memory card, allowing for an added "at-the-camera" recording option that works in conjunction with an alarm.
The Toshiba IK-WB21A’s most powerful asset is its fast, wide-range PTZ system, which makes the camera especially effective in smaller retail, office and residential applications where a single unit can cover an entire premise area. The 300-degree per second panning speed (-175 to +175 degree range) and 200-degree per second tilt speed (-30 to 90 degree desktop, -90 to 30 degree ceiling) permit the camera to immediately pinpoint a location without delays due to compression. The high quality, auto focus lens (f=4.0 to 88mm) has a built-in 22x optical zoom to scan in on tight areas, such as visual verification of a cash register transaction.
Incorporating a powerful 1.4-inch CCD, the Toshiba IK-WB21A provides superior images with more detail and improved brightness than any other network camera in its class. Even at challenging lighting conditions, the IK-WB21A outperforms the competition thanks to its versatile backlight compensation, auto gain control, and extreme low-light sensitivity (0.13 Lux@F1.6). Sleek, lightweight and remarkably compact, the all-in-one IK-WB21A offers the flexibility of being ceiling mounted or placed on a flat surface.
