Bosch wins NSCA Innovations in Technology award

Product Profile

Bosch Security Systems has won the NSCA’s 2005 Innovations in Technology award in the Security/Fire/Life Safety category.  Bosch was one of only three finalists and won the award for the highly innovative mechanically-switchable IR filter featured in its high-performance LTC 0495 and LTC 0620 DinionXF Digital CCD Day/Night Cameras.  The IR filter, which is automatically removed when the light level falls below a preset value, ensures the highest image quality, even under poor lighting conditions, day or night.  For night-time surveillance, the camera also automatically switches to monochrome mode to increase sensitivity.

The advanced technology of the 1/3-inch LTC 0495 and LTC 0620 Digital CCD Day/Night Cameras guarantees around-the clock surveillance, making the camera ideal for high-security areas including public utilities, prisons, and banks, as well as for situations where identification and image detail are critical, such as in retail stores.

Over 100 companies entered products for consideration in this year’s Innovations in Technology Award Program, held at the Systems Integration Expo, Orlando, FL.  Finalists were selected by a panel of judges, and then voted on by Expo attendees to determine the winner of each category.

The National Systems Contractors Association (NSCA) is the leading non-profit association representing the commercial electronic systems industry, and has more than 2,500 member companies worldwide.
