Original Press Release:
New Bosch H.264 Dinion and Flexidome IP Cameras Offer Best Quality H.264 Video
2X IP series set the benchmark for image performance
Bosch Security System has extended its 2X flagship product family with the new H.264 Dinion and Flexidome IP camera series. With these additions, Bosch can boast one of the most exhaustive portfolios of H.264 based IP cameras in standard box and ruggedized outdoor dome camera versions.
Since the introduction of Bosch's 2X video processing technology in 2009, Dinion 2X and Flexidome 2X cameras have become the hallmark for top image quality during day or night. The analog Dinion 2X and Flexidome 2X cameras were the first cameras in the industry to use 20-bit image processing technology. This fact, plus advanced features such as Smart BLC, Wide Dynamic Range and superior night-time performance have already made them one of the preferred choices for video surveillance under challenging light conditions.
In addition, the cameras' H.264 compression reduces network load by up to 30% compared with conventional compression technologies such as MPEG-4. Moreover, Bosch's low-latency main profile H.264 implementation offers all the compression benefits for live video, without sacrificing image quality. All H.264 IP cameras are capable of generating two independent, full-frame-rate, full-resolution (25IPS@4CIF) video streams per camera. This enables two video streams to be recorded simultaneously on different media, offering maximum flexibility and redundancy - for example, centrally on iSCSI drives managed by the Bosch VRM (Video Recording Manager).
To meet the increasing market demand for better images with less demand on network and storage resources, combined with "intelligence at the edge", the product series include "designed for IVA" versions in which IVA 4.0 runs on a dedicated FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) hardware accelerator to process the entire video in real-time.
Moreover, the IP cameras are fully compliant with the Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) standard, giving customers complete freedom to choose either Bosch video management software or any ONVIF compliant third-party video management software.
The cameras also have esthetically pleasing styling and a rugged mechanical construction, the latter enabling them to operate over a larger temperature range than previous models. The dome cameras also come with an IP 66 ruggedized vandal-proof housing with various mounting options such as true in-ceiling flush mount, or surface mount to suite any on-site mounting requirement.
The new H.264 Dinion 2X and FlexiDome 2X IP cameras are well suited for any applications in difficult lighting conditions and day/night surveillance, or where the most detailed images are required. Examples include outdoor perimeters, traffic monitoring, tunnels, car parks, casinos and gaming centers.
