Bosch Security Systems has launched two megapixel (2 MP) / 1080p high dynamic range (HDR) cameras. The DINION and FLEXIDOME HDR cameras deliver image quality in both bright and dark environments. Even in high-contrast scenes or when looking from dark locations into well-lit areas, the devices provide a wide dynamic range to capture more detail in both highlights and shadows.
The cameras feature integrated HD-optimized Intelligent Video Analysis and adaptive video processing to automatically detect objects—such as licence plates or faces, and adjust scene exposure to maximize details in these areas. To further enhance effectiveness, regions of interest can be defined, allowing the user to zoom into certain details of the full image. The close-up images are transmitted in a separate stream so that both overview and detail can be viewed at the same time–all in high resolution.
The intelligence embodied in the cameras also reduces bandwidth and storage requirements. Edge recording is enabled with a Micro SDXC card cable of up to two terabytes of local storage, and the cameras come with free Bosch Video Client (BVC) software for up to 16 channels. BVC provides easy live viewing of multiple cameras, playback, forensic search and export.
