Toshiba Surveillance & IP Video Products Group, a business unit of Toshiba America Information Systems, has expanded its IP portfolio with the IK-WP41A Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) IP dome camera.

Purpose-engineered to provide broad surveillance coverage outdoors, the camera features full 1080p HD video resolution, 20x optical zoom to help identify distant objects, 360-degree continuous pan for overview surveillance, along with high-speed PTZ to precisely follow moving objects.

The camera's self-contained IP66-rated weatherproof housing protects sensitive electronics from adverse conditions. Power-over-Ethernet 802.3af further simplifies installation since only one Ethernet cable is needed for transmitting video, power and PTZ controls. Plus, because a single IK-WP41A provides as much video coverage as six standard resolution cameras (VGA), it will monitor a much larger area with fewer cameras to reduce installation and maintenance expenses.

With true day/night imaging (IR cut filter) and low-light sensitivity down to 0.3 lux, the IK-WP41A captures detail-rich video even in near-total darkness. H.264 video compression preserves bandwidth on the network while streaming full-frame 1080p resolution video at 30 frames per second. Dual-streaming H.264 and MJPEG lets the camera simultaneously produce high-quality 720p images for live viewing and recording plus transmit JPEG images to a remote server or handheld device.
