The market for PC cameras is expanding, in line with their growing popularity as an accessory for capturing video images for networking through PCs. The output signal of PC cameras has recently tended toward digital instead of analog output. Therefore, the CardBus interface, which transfers data much faster than current PC cards, is required.
Toshiba has developed the IK-D30 digital card camera in response to the above situation. The IK-D30 has a compact and lightweight design for easy installation on a PC. Moreover, a pioneering feature of this digital card camera is that it supports the CardBus interface.
