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 suitable for such critical areas as bus stations, care facilities and hospitals.
By supplying clear video images even in completely dark surroundings, the camera enables video surveillance to act as a preventive component in the safety of public places. Safety personnel will gain a much higher level of situational awareness and 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. The Flexidome IP corner 9000 MP camera features high-resolution optics for detail and image usability, as well as a wide-angle fisheye lens for covering every corner. Furthermore, integrated active infrared LEDs maintain video clarity even in complete darkness and its rugged, non-grip design makes the camera extremely difficult to tamper with. Finally, it is equipped with content based imaging technology, which lowers bandwidth consumption and thus storage costs by up to 50 percent by way of intelligent dynamic noise reduction (iDNR). This innovative feature suppresses all irrelevant image noise artifacts, substantially reducing the bandwidth required.
“Providing better security in single-room surroundings or areas with poor light conditions is an increasingly important requirement for video surveillance,” explains Cheryl Bard, product marketing manager 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 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 conformant. The camera is also supported by the Integration Partner Program, which gives partners immediate access to online tools for easy integration.
