Toshiba Surveillance & IP Video Products Group introduced a new line of five-megapixel IP dome cameras.

The new vandal-resistant IK-WR51A outdoor model and indoor IK-WD51A indoor version have “Hallway View,” a feature that lets the user rotate the camera’s perspective 90° to accurately capture narrow vertical areas such as tunnels, staircases, long hallways, retail aisles or warehouse corridors.

“Every security professional has come across a situation where the area that needs to be monitored is more vertical than horizontal, and the standard camera landscape view will miss critical areas in the field of view,” said Greg Hartzell, director of Toshiba Surveillance & IP Video Products Group. “Our new cameras give the option of a 90° portrait view so the user can perfectly adapt the video stream to narrow areas without compromising resolution or image quality, while making the most of their bandwidth and storage capabilities.”

The IK-WR51A and IK-WD51A enhance security, safety and operational strategies with features that include: Full frame HD video at 30 frames-per-second (2560×1920); Adaptive IR illuminators that automatically adjust LED intensity when objects are near-by to avoid overexposure; and Smart Codec H.265 compression assists in reducing video storage and bandwidth costs, while 4-user multi-streaming optimizes the balance of video quality, storage, and networking requirements.

Both cameras are ONVIF Profile-G compliant.
