TOKYO -- March 27, 2014

Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) announced today that it will start mass
production shipments of “TCM3211PB”, a 1/4 inch VGA CMOS area image sensor for
surveillance cameras and drive recorders, at the end of April.
The new sensor adopts large 5.6 µm pixels, improving low light sensitivity.
Even in moonlight^1, bright images can be captured.
The sensor also incorporates a single frame HDR (High Dynamic Range)
function^2 based on Toshiba algorithm. It reduces false color^3 and faithfully
reproduces dark and bright areas in high contrast images.
The product’s high frame rate of 60 fps at full resolution enables smooth and
seamless capture of video images.
