FAIRPORT, N.Y. – Bosch Security Systems, Inc. is setting the standard for HD imaging with the launch of its two megapixel (2 MP) / 1080p high dynamic range (HDR) cameras. The DINION and FLEXIDOME HDR cameras deliver exceptional image quality in both bright and dark environments. Even in high-contrast scenes or when looking from dark locations into well-lit areas, the devices provide an exceptionally wide dynamic range to capture more detail in both highlights and shadows.
The cameras feature integrated HD-optimized Intelligent Video Analysis and adaptive video processing to automatically detect objects—such as license plates or faces—and adjust scene exposure to maximize details in these areas. To further enhance effectiveness, regions of interest can be defined, allowing the user to zoom into certain details of the full image. The close-up images are transmitted in a separate stream so that both overview and detail can be viewed at the same time–all in high resolution.
The intelligence embodied in the cameras also reduces bandwidth and storage requirements. The intelligent digital noise reduction feature optimizes bandwidth by dynamically tuning the degree of noise reduction based upon an analysis of important objects moving through the camera’s field of view. When nothing important is happening, bandwidth is minimized. When an important object is detected, the bandwidth increases to eliminate motion blur and capture maximum details.
Edge recording is enabled with a Micro SDXC card cable of up to two terabytes of local storage, and the cameras come with free Bosch Video Client (BVC) software for up to 16 channels. BVC provides easy live viewing of multiple cameras, playback, forensic search and export.
The cameras conform to the Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) standard which guarantees interoperability between network video products regardless of the manufacturer. ONVIF conformant devices are able to exchange live video, audio, metadata and control information. They are automatically discovered and connected to network applications such as video management systems.
Built-in durability and flexibility
The FLEXIDOME HDR ruggedized dome camera comes with a choice of pre-installed high quality telephoto, mid-range and ultra-wide-angle lenses. Each lens is specifically matched to the sensor to ensure full resolution even in the corners. The 1.8 to 3 mm optically-corrected ultra-wide-angle lens provides outstanding performance without the need for de-warping software, delivering more coverage without distortion.
The enhanced imaging system, diverse mounting and lens options, and the rugged environmental housing that withstands the equivalent of 120 lbs of force makes the FLEXIDOME HDR dome the right choice for challenging installations, such as railways, airports, transportation hubs, industrial areas and the exterior of commercial and government buildings.
