Bosch releases new H.264 IP cameras

FAIRPORT, N.Y. – Bosch Security Systems, Inc. today launched 40 fixed body Dinion and FlexiDome H.264 main profile IP cameras. The series includes advanced models designed for harsh lighting conditions as well as standard IP cameras suited for well-lit applications – meeting a wide range of customer requirements. The entire portfolio of new progressive scan cameras consistently captures clear, sharp images and delivers excellent color reproduction.

Each camera features advanced H.264 main profile video compression to provide customers with broadcast quality video that requires up to 50 percent less storage space, depending on scene and quality settings. Every detail in the image is captured without compromising frame rates – an important feature for recognizing objects, such as a person’s face.

Built-in Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA), available as a licensable option, processes the detailed images to provide automated assistance to security personnel. IVA alerts security staff to suspicious activity, such as loitering or perimeter breaches, for earlier threat detection. This advanced technology’s Forensic Search capabilities also enable users to quickly locate events in recorded video.

Support for the Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) standard also ensures the new FlexiDome and Dinion IP cameras are easy to install – integrating seamlessly with compliant video products from different vendors. For installers and system integrators, this provides greater freedom in specifying a system.

New Series Includes Advanced 2X-Dynamic Technology

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 – twice the power of conventional cameras – for unparalleled image quality in all lighting conditions.

The cameras use 2X-Dynamic and wide dynamic range sensors to analyze images pixel-by-pixel and produce the most detailed view of scenes with difficult lighting. This unique combination enables the cameras to reveal more than is visible with the human eye alone, making them ideal for day/night surveillance or applications where the most detailed images are required.

2X cameras also feature Smart Backlight Compensation (BLC) to optimize light levels for objects of interest in scenes with a bright background. Smart BLC automatically analyzes images and enhances details to provide the best result, without the need for user intervention.

With the addition of the 40 new FlexiDome and Dinion series products, Bosch now offers IP cameras to cover every area of a customer's facility – regardless of lighting or environmental conditions. Bosch IP cameras are well suited for a wide variety of applications, including outdoor perimeters, traffic monitoring, correctional facilities, parking lots and garages, casinos, and industrial and critical infrastructure facilities.
