A HOT Month for Surveillance Accessories

Bosch Security Systems Inc., Fairport, N.Y., is rolling out technology innovations with the release of three new solutions in the past month.

With the addition of 40 fixed body Dinion and FlexiDome H.264 main profile IP cameras, Bosch now offers IP cameras well suited for a wide variety of applications, including outdoor perimeters, traffic monitoring, correctional facilities and more. Built-in Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA), available as a licensable option, processes the detailed images to provide automated assistance to security personnel. The NBN-498 and NDN-498 series of the fixed body and dome IP cameras feature Bosch's 2X-Dynamic Technology with 20-bit processing.

Also new is Bosch's central station receiver software, designed to improve processing of alarm signals modified by voice over IP (VoIP) or digital phone networks. The new software improves the ability of Bosch's Conettix D6600 and D6100i Communications Receivers to interpret and accept control panel signals even if they do not meet the formatting requirements of the communications protocol. The receiver software analyzes the alarm signals to decode those that have been modified by VoIP or digital phone networks.

Outfitted with a new TCP/IP Communications Module for its AutoDome Camera System, the new module from Bosch delivers H.264 Main Profile compression, powerful Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA) and alarm handling and compliance with the Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) standard. AutoDome cameras equipped with the new module deliver hybrid operation with both Ethernet and analog connections for supporting existing equipment.

More Surveillance Power in Your Rack-The VertiLine16i Rack Mount Camera Power Supply from Altronix features 16 individually selectable 24VAC or 28VAC isolated power outputs rated at 1 amp each. UL listed for use in the U.S. and Canada, it is designed in a space-saving 1U EIA 19-inch chassis with LED status indicators for each output. Power input is 115VAC or 230VAC.

Indoor and Outdoor Housing Protection-Arecont Vision's HSG1-O-W vandal-proof environmental housing accessory provides optimal protection for their entire line of color and day/night MegaVideo(r) IP cameras. With an IP67-compliant waterproof enclosure, the HSG1-O-W is equipped with a heater, blower and wall mount.

Field Installation Simplified!-Axis Communications' T8412 Installation Display is a battery-powered handheld device that vastly simplifies the field installation of both Axis network cameras and analog cameras.
