Bosch Surveillance cameras
Three new models have recently been added to Bosch’s range of FlexiDomeXT plug-and-play, vandal-resistant fixed-dome cameras to extend distance and space functionality. The new models, on show at this year’s IFSEC, provide an additional choice of three new auto-iris VariFocal lenses for wider angle capture of between 24 and 105 degrees. This enables full coverage of confined spaces such as elevators, bank vaults or prison cells. A telephoto lens is also available with a very narrow angle of 24 degrees, suitable for close-up views in, for example, banks or retail stores. An additional new lens, with a speed of F1.2, is designed for sensitive low-light scenes. NightSense, an innovative feature already available with Bosch’s Dinion camera range, is also now standard with all FlexiDomeXT colour cameras. NightSense increases three-fold for maximum image quality at very low light levels to allow around-the-clock surveillance and surveillance in areas with extremes of shadow. FlexiDomeXT surface-mounting possibilities have been extended with two additional options – the Pendant Wall Mount, with a curved conduit assembly, for vertical surfaces; and the Pendant Pipe Mount for ceiling mounting with unobstructed view.

Complete solutions for small businesses using Advantage Line products from BoschFollowing on from our last article on security for small shops, we look at how Advantage Line products from Bosch fulfill all the surveillance needs of small offices. Choose between familiar analogue solutions or increasingly popular network IP solutioncs. A secure small office.For small offices, it's important for staff to feel safe and to keep a watch out for people pretending to be genuine visitors. Security starts in the parking area of the office. This can be guarded by one or two infrared dome cameras or IP 200 Series infrared bullet cameras, ideal for helping spot any suspicious activity. Here, cameras with Day/Night capability ensure the best quality, round-the-clock surveillance. An additional infrared dome camera can be fitted outside the entrance door to observe visitors, with a monitor at the reception desk to identify guests.Inside the office at the reception area, a discreet dome color camera keeps an unobtrusive eye on the comings and goings of visitors. Alternatively, a fixed-body camera can be used as more of a deterrent, making it more obvious that surveillance is installed on the premises. To heighten the deterrent factor further, a 19" confrontational monitor adds an obvious statement.Enhancing overall securitySmall offices often have an area between entrance and reception that is open to the public, where people can sit or stand while waiting for an appointment. Here, one or more ceiling-mounted overview cameras greatly enhance overall security. Again dome or fixed-body color cameras can be used depending on personal choice.A video recorder, such as the Bosch 600 Series makes the perfect system manager for an analog system. It displays playback and recorded video from up to 16 cameras at a single location, and can even stream live video over the internet to a device such as a smartphone. If the system uses IP cameras, video recording can be made to central storage on a network attached storage (NAS) device. Recordings can also be safeguarded by taking advantage of the IP cameras' internal SD-card capability, capturing video directly on the camera. Cameras can also be linked to a PC using Bosch Video Client, which is supplied free for systems with up to 16 cameras.Optimal security on a limited budgetAdvantage Line is ideal for businesses looking for optimal security on a limited budget.

The FLEXIDOME starlight HD 720p60 VR camera provides clear images 24/7, even at night or under low-light conditions. The intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction (iDNR) actively analyzes the contents of the scene to reduce bandwidth and storage requirements. The 60 images-per-second mode provides for optimum performance in fast action scenes and is particularly suitable for casino and banking applications.
Modern video safety surveillance has to be able to observe locations with poor lighting conditions which are prone to vandalism. The new FLEXIDOME IP corner 9000 MP camera from Bosch specifically addresses these requirements, making it particularly suitable for such critical areas as bus stations, care facilities, and hospitals. By supplying usable, clear video images even in completely dark surroundings, the camera enables video surveillance to act as a truly preventive component in the safety of public traffic users and patients. Safety personal will gain a much higher situational awareness and thus will be able to intervene at an early stage. Critical areas, such as waiting rooms, are prone to vandalism, which is often aimed at the surveillance equipment itself. While the fundamental problem may be poor lighting conditions or even complete darkness, it is still necessary to cover the entire area with a minimum number of cameras, while providing extra illumination as well as resistance to vandalism or tampering. Addressing these needs, the FLEXIDOME IP corner 9000 MP camera features high-resolution, wide-angle optics for maximum detail and image usability, as well as a wide-angle fisheye lens for covering every corner. Furthermore, in order to supply additional illumination as needed, integrated active infrared LEDs maintain video clarity even in complete darkness. Thanks to its rugged and non-grip design, the camera is extremely difficult to tamper with. Finally, it is equipped with the latest Content Based Imaging Technology, which lowers bandwidth consumption and thus storage costs by up to 50 percent by way of intelligent Dynamic Image Noise Reduction (iDNR). This innovative feature suppresses all irrelevant image noise artifacts, therefore substantially reducing the bandwidth required. “Providing better security in single-room surroundings or areas with critical light conditions is an increasingly important requirement for video surveillance,” explains Arnaud Lannes, Product Marketing Manager Video Systems at Bosch Security Systems. “The new FLEXIDOME IP corner 9000 MP camera represents a solution not only for care facilities, but also for industrial environments that need extra protection.” The FLEXIDOME IP corner 9000 MP camera seamlessly integrates with a wide range of security software and recording solutions from Bosch, such as the Video Management System BVMS and DIVAR IP recorders, as well as those of third-party suppliers, as it is ONVIF compliant. The camera is also supported by the Integration Partner Program, which gives partners immediate access to online tools for easy integration. Further details of the Bosch Integration Partner Program are available at ipp.boschsecurity.com.
At IFSEC 2005, Bosch Security Systems displayed two new Day/Night versions of its high-performance, 15-bit DSP DinionXF range. For round-the-clock surveillance, the DinionXF Day/Night versions feature a built-in infrared filter for daylight surveillance that automatically moves from in front of the lens when the light level falls below a present value (at night infrared is the most useful region of the electromagnetic spectrum for imaging). For night-time surveillance, the camera also automatically switches to monochrome mode to increase sensitivity. The DinionXF Day/Night versions have built-in, through-the-lens infrared metering and detection that prevent reversion to daylight mode if the camera is illuminated by an infrared source at night. The IR filter can also be switched manually via the alarm input, through the camera menu or via the Bilinx coaxial bi-directional control interface. The new cameras also feature SensUp that dramatically enhances the effective sensitivity by decoupling image accumulation from the video output and by increasing accumulation time on the CCD up to ten times. Bosch’s SensUp works with continuous shutter speed adjustment for the smoothest possible video level control. SensUp is most effective where the only light is from the moon, stars and scattered radiation. Enhanced night-time imaging guarantees round-the-clock surveillance Lens Wizard automatically detects lens type and sets focus for 24-hour cycle Video Motion Detection allows selection of four fully programmable areas XF-Dynamic feature extends dynamic range for outstanding image quality CCD imaging and DSP technologies enable best possible sensitivity
