Toshiba Surveillance & IP Video Products, a business unit of Toshiba America Information Systems, is offering a new line of 960H analog dome cameras that provide a 34 percent increase in resolution over comparatively priced D1 analog cameras and more than 500 percent larger than CIF cameras, the company stated. D1 (720 x 480 pixels) is the maximum resolution a conventional analog camera can achieve after the video signal has been digitized in a DVR or a video encoder. Toshiba IKS-D207 (indoor) and IKS-R307 (outdoor) cameras (pictured) incorporate a 960 x 640 CCD sensor to provide insurance against risks such as property damage, vandalism, theft and burglary by delivering 700 TV lines (TVL) for extraordinarily sharp video along with 24 IR LEDs to accommodate nighttime conditions down to 0.05 lux for 24/7/365 surveillance. Recording larger images not only supplies more image details, it additionally produces a wide-screen picture that does not require stretching to fit HDTVs or monitors.
