Vandal Resistant FLEXIDOME Cameras from Bosch Deliver Superior HD Imaging in All Lighting Conditions
Bosch Security Systems, Inc. introduces the FLEXIDOME HD VR family of cameras with robust, compact dome housings. The cameras are available with a choice of imaging modules: 720p60 for superior low-light performance; 1080p for full HD resolution; and 1080p HDR for even the most challenging wide dynamic range scenes.
All three modules make use of the same FLEXIDOME design, providing a unique freedom of choice and unified aesthetic for the latest in video security installations. In addition, the cameras feature Content-Based Imaging Technology (CBIT), a Bosch innovation that provides intelligent dynamic image optimization. The CBIT-enabled cameras include two special modes: intelligent Auto Exposure (iAE), resulting in optimal details for objects of interest, and intelligent dynamic noise reduction (iDNR) that lowers bandwidth requirements by up to 30 percent, compared to other cameras.
For ease of use, the new FLEXIDOME HD VR is equipped with an automatic varifocal (AVF) lens. This significantly simplifies and halves the installation time, since several cameras can be focused and zoomed remotely from the comfort of the control room. Furthermore, the AVF lens fully exploits the high-sensor resolutions available with Bosch super resolution lenses. The cameras’ design supports 90-degree horizontal viewing and a full range of mounting options.
“The FLEXIDOME HD VR completes our portfolio of HD Security Breakthrough Cameras,” explained Rob Bertens, product manager video systems. “It clearly represents a significant step forward in terms of design, image quality, ease of installation and operation.”
Alongside its advances in operation and aesthetics, the new FLEXIDOME cameras are hybrid systems, supporting connections to existing analog devices and systems, including spot monitors. They allow for a gradual migration from analog systems to high-tech, IP solutions.
The FLEXIDOME HD VR works seamlessly with the Bosch transcoding technology as implemented in the Video Management System, the Video Client as well as in other storage solutions from Bosch. Video streams can be viewed from an iPad, browser, or the free Viewing Client from Bosch. This makes the cameras ideal for applications in retail stores, restaurants, casinos, airports and public transport.
Bosch’s IP standard- and high-definition cameras, encoders and analytics are ONVIF conformant and compatible with software and storage solutions from third-party integrators. This is supported by the Integration Partner Program, which gives partners immediate access to online tools for easy integration.
