IRVINE, Calif., 2 Oct. 2009. Toshiba Teli America Inc. in Irvine, Calif., is introducing is introducing the CSH9501 compact 1/6-inch CCD camera head for covert surveillance that measures 7 millimeters around and weighs 3 grams.

About the size of a pen cap, the CSH9501 can be attached to an information display or standard video recorder, including micro-sized SD Card-based systems that slip inside pockets or purses.

The addition of a video server transforms the CSH9501 into a hybrid analog/IP network camera for Internet viewing. Toshiba Teli also offers its CS9001 camera control unit (CCU) that is sold separately for specialized industrial inspection applications.

The CSH9501 has strong color capture and 470-by-350-pixel resolution for high-quality video recordings and prints to identify subjects.

The compact remote head configuration enables the CSH9501 to fit flush into walls, furniture, or ceilings as a remote "pinhole" camera in covertly capturing theft occurring in retail outlets or at cash registers.

It can also be integrated into a moving vehicle, such as a police car, commuter train, or school bus. For this reason the camera is equally suited for sports broadcasting and field testing. For more information contact Toshiba Teli America online at www.toshiba-teli.com.
