Toshiba launches bullet cameras
Toshiba Surveillance and IP Video Products launched its new IK-7100A Series of day/night color bullet cameras, the company's first such introduction in this high-demand video surveillance category.
The two cameras that make up the series offer outstanding performance
by incorporating several innovative features that improve imaging
prowess and simplify installation.
With a weather-resistant IP66 rated metal housing, the new IK-7100A
cameras are purpose-engineered for outdoor video security, although
they are equally effective indoors. Hardened metal construction of the
housing resists corrosion, bad weather and vandalism, while 16
long-range, high-intensity infrared LEDs enhance the performance of the
camera in dark conditions where object detection and subject
recognition is critical. The 850nm LEDs are invisible to the human eye
yet illuminate a clear image at over 30 feet in total darkness.
The two cameras have identical feature-sets except for lenses. The
IK-7100A-3.6 has a 3.6mm lens for a wider sight range, while the
IK-7100A-8 has a 8.0mm lens for mid-range applications. Both offer a
powerful combination of infrared LEDs and Day/Night functionality with
high resolution 480 TVL to maximize performance in exceptional low
light. In addition, Digital Signal Processing was incorporated into the
cameras to reduce the degradation of images in lower light. By ensuring
lower interference, Digital Signal Processing provides better video
quality and greater storage capacity on DVRs.
