Bosch Security Systems has expanded its AutoDome Junior HD series with a new fixed camera model. The AutoDome Junior HD Fixed Camera provides the same 1080p or 720p resolutions, 10x optical zoom and compact design as the rest of the series, making it an ideal indoor fixed camera choice for applications where both highly-detailed imaging and aesthetics are important.
Banking, retail, casino, and government or commercial building applications will benefit from the camera's crisp, clear images that make it easier to identify people or small objects, such as jewellery. HD video also delivers increased situational awareness with a 16:9 aspect ratio that maximises the field of view without compromising image details.
Quadstreaming provides simultaneous streaming of high-quality video with differing frame rate and resolution settings for flexibility in system design. For example, customers can select 1080p or 720p HD video for recording with H.264 compression, while simultaneously sending JPEG images to a hand-held device.
The camera also offers built-in Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA) software to automatically process video signals and alert operators to potential security risks. The higher pixel densities captured by the AutoDome Junior HD Fixed Camera enables optimised performance of IVA with improved detection for loitering, line crossing and other potential threats.
For easy installation, the AutoDome Junior HD Fixed Camera allows operators to commission the camera from a remote head-end unit, eliminating the need for hands-on focusing at the camera. Once the camera is configured, operators can use the built-in Web interface, the Configuration Manager from Bosch or the Video Management System from Bosch to remotely position it and fix its location without removing the bubble or connecting a monitor directly to the camera.
Power over Ethernet Plus support also enables a single cable connection to power, control and view images from the camera. In addition, conformance to the Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) standard makes it simple to integrate the camera with other IP video equipment.
The compact AutoDome Junior HD Fixed Camera is ideal for discrete surveillance. Its rugged, vandal-resistant housing helps protect the camera from damage and theft, ensuring years of reliable operation in the toughest environments.
