Bosch Releases FLEXIDOME IP corner 9000 MP camera suitable for critical areas
Views: 37

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 cameras 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 personnel will gain 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 per cent by way of intelligent Dynamic Image Noise Reduction (iDNR). This innovative feature suppresses all irrelevant image noise artefacts, 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,” explained 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.
