Examining Toshiba's 2MP Outdoor Dome Camera

By John Honovich, Published Oct 06, 2010, 08:00pm EDT

Toshiba [link no longer available] has released a 2MP dome camera model (IK-WR12A) [link no longer available]. The unit features an outdoor rated (IP66) enclosure, integrated heater/fan, IR LED array, IR cut filter, 3-9mm lens, on-board storage (SDHC), two way audio, and dual streaming.

The listed MSRP of $654 USD is a competitively attractive price point. The closest competitor 2MP outdoor dome model is Vivotek's FD8361, which has an MSRP of $920 USD.

The discounted price brings a few trade-offs: the camera does not support H.264- only JPEG and MPEG4, and there is no option for lens variations- the specified (non-removable) 3-9mm lens is only available. 

We are still verifying 3rd party support options.

The IK-WR12A 2MP dome camera was made available for commercial shipping as of October 1, 2010.
