Bosch unveils new series of AutoDome Cameras
Full-featured IP and analog pan-tilt-zoom systems
- Series offers cost-effective surveillance with intelligent features
- Cameras capture high quality images in all lighting conditions
- Innovative design makes installation and operation easy
Bosch Security Systems has introduced the next generation of its AutoDome Pan-Tilt-Zoom Camera family. The new AutoDome 600 Series analog cameras and the AutoDome 700 Series IP cameras provide customers with high resolution imaging in a range of scene conditions-including well-lit, harshly lit or low light environments.
The powerful AutoDome cameras feature 360-degree high-speed continuous rotation and 28x or 36x optical zoom to provide customers with an increased monitoring range. High performance, progressive scan digital imaging delivers sharp video even when moving objects are present, and wide dynamic range technology captures all the important details in scenes with both bright and dark areas. A Sodium Vapor White Balance mode also enables the cameras to restore images of objects to their original color when affected by street or tunnel lamps.
The affordable 600 Series cameras offer built-in motion detection, advanced alarm control and the award-winning AutoTrack II, which continuously follows an object even if it passes behind a privacy mask. Bosch's unique virtual masking technology enables the camera to ignore any extraneous motion, such as swaying trees, making it ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications.
The 700 Series IP cameras come with embedded Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA) software already enabled. With this feature, the cameras process video signals and automatically alert operators to potential security risks. One AutoDome pan-tilt-zoom camera can analyze up to 10 different scenes for loitering, line crossing and other potential threats- providing customers with reliable detection, tracking, analysis and advanced search capabilities.
The entire AutoDome series is designed to make installation easy. Pre-terminated, color-coded wiring and a quick connect system between the camera and mount make AutoDomes faster to install than other pan-tilt-zoom domes. AutoDome IP models also conform to the ONVIF standard (Open Network Video Interface Forum) to enable simplified integration with products from other manufacturers.
A rugged dome, the AutoDome features a heavy-duty, tamper-resistant aluminum housing that is rated to IP 66 to provide uncompromised functionality even in dusty and wet environments.
