HD cameras with visual appeal
Video surveillance as a security measure often requires balancing optimum performance with aesthetics. In offices, hospitality applications or retail stores, design and appearance can be just as important as technical performance. The new DINION IP 4000 and 5000 cameras from Bosch Security Systems, Inc. meet these multiple requirements by combining the latest technology with outstanding aesthetic design.
Both cameras offer an attractive range of features with regard to the highest image quality, management of bit rates, and lowest storage requirements, as well as important audio capabilities, cloud-based services, and easy and cost-effective installation. The cameras are available in two versions: the DINION IP 4000 HD with 720p resolution and the DINION IP 5000 HD with 1080p resolution. The desired amount of detail can be selected according to the intended application. Both models feature intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction (iDNR) to automatically adjust the level of noise reduction based on movement in the scene. This ensures crisp images and saves up to 50 percent on bit rates and thus memory requirements, considerably lowering storage and overall system costs.
A built-in microphone and two-way audio functionality turn these DINION IP cameras into even more effective security tools, as the operator or security guard can not only listen to but also question intruders or communicate with visitors who appear to be in need of assistance. Easy installation and configuration are guaranteed by the cameras’ Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) functionality and preconfigured user modes. For retail applications in particular, the cameras come with a direct monitor output, enabling a viewing monitor to be connected to the camera. This makes it ideal for entrances and other situations where people need to be made aware of the presence of video surveillance.
For access to high definition video from any location at any time, Bosch offers Dynamic Transcoding technology, which adjusts the bit rate of the camera to accommodate available bandwidth. This patented technology enables smooth live video streaming and full-HD details when playback is paused. Dynamic Transcoding can be fully exploited in combination with the new DINION IP 4000 and 5000 cameras by simply adding one of the Bosch DIVAR IP recording solutions or a Bosch VIDEOJET to the surveillance solution.
“The two new DINION IP HD cameras are the logical solution for small and medium-sized enterprises where both professional security and appearance matter,” explains Derek Lin, Product Manager Video Systems at Bosch. “Their aesthetic design makes them ideal for seamless and discrete indoor installation, offering maximum security for people and property while simultaneously respecting the building’s architecture. They demonstrate that high performance and aesthetic design can be made affordable for everyday video surveillance applications.”
The entire Bosch IP portfolio seamlessly integrates with software and recording solutions from Bosch and other vendors. Third party integration is ensured by the ONVIF conformity of all Bosch IP cameras, as well as the Bosch Integration Partner Program (IPP), which simplifies the interoperability of video surveillance products. The IPP portal provides access to a comprehensive library of integration tools, video solutions, services, and information about compatible products.
