Toshiba today announced the launch of its first “Ultra HD” IP video surveillance camera. The Toshiba IKS-WB9518 is capable of recording 4K video in 3840 x 2160 resolution at 25 frames per second. High resolution enables the camera to provide a high level of detail that customers need to effectively watch for intruders, capture fast moving objects and monitor large areas.


The deployment of Toshiba’s first 4K video surveillance camera can also reduce the number of conventional HD cameras required by up to 50 percent due to its ability to cover wide spaces. This ends up reducing overall system costs and future maintenance costs for customers.

Digital wide dynamic range is supported by the camera to provide consistent 4K sharpness across the entire frame, this improves image quality by adjusting the gamma value to enhance dark areas and reduce image deterioration. True Day-Night imaging filters Infra-Red during the day for enhanced color images while providing the benefits of a night vision camera in low light conditions.

Toshiba IKS-WB9518 addresses 4K recording large file concerns with integrated H.264 video compression which minimizes network strain. The camera also allows streaming of multiple feeds in 1080p HD on a standard monitor while recording 4K footage for later. The camera features a microSD card slot that supports cards of up to 64GB.
