The Bosch LTC 0630/21 uses a 1/2" CCD to deliver 540 TVL of resolution, and comes equipped with XF-Dynamic technology - an advanced WDR system - to resolve extreme lighting environments. In low light levels, the camera activates its Day/Night system, which works together with an IR cut filter mechanism to switch from color mode to a super sensitive B/W mode. In B/W mode, the camera can generate visible images in light levels down to 0.057 lux (at 100 IRE). With these attributes, the LTC 0630/21 can be relied upon to perform both day and night, and in virtually any lighting or scene environment. Bosch also designed this camera for easy installation, with a lens wizard that auto detects the type of lens, and pre-programmed operational modes that are stored in memory and can be instantly recalled when needed. As with other Bosch cameras, the LTC 0630/21 supports Bilinx technology, a feature that allows communication data such as camera settings, firmware updates, and camera status to be sent and recieved over the same coax cable used to transmit video, thus simplifying installation and servicing.
XF-Dynamic and Image Processing
Improved XF-Dynamic technology and highly accurate digital signal processing optimally captures the detail in both bright highlights and deep shadows simultaneously. The Dinion2X maximizes the information visible in the picture even with strong backlighting.
Turn on SmartBLC to automatically compensate the image without the need for complicated set-up.
Features such as Autoblack and Sharpness further improve the details in a scene, pixel by pixel.
The day/night mode provides enhanced night viewing by increasing the IR sensitivity. The IR filter can switch from color to monochrome automatically by either sensing the illumination level or via the alarm input. The filter can be switched manually via the alarm input, through the camera menu or via the Bilinx coaxial control interface. An internal through-the-lens IR detector enhances the monochrome mode stability, as it prevents reverting to the color mode when IR illumination is dominant. IR contrast is also measured and used to handle reflected IR light in outdoor scenes.
Four different privacy zones allow specific parts of a scene to be blocked. Pre-program any part of the scene to be masked.
The default shutter speed captures fast moving objects when sufficient light is available. When light levels fall and other adjustments have been exhausted, the shutter speed reverts to a standard setting to maintain sensitivity.
Bilinx is a bidirectional communication capability embedded in the video signal of all Bosch Dinion cameras. Technicians can check status, change camera settings and even update firmware from virtually anywhere along the video cable. Bilinx reduces service and installation time, provides for more accurate set-up and adjustment, and improves overall performance. In addition, Bilinx uses the standard video cable to transmit alarm and status messages, providing superior performance without additional installation steps.
The Lens Wizard automatically detects the lens type and helps focus the lens at the maximum opening to ensure proper focus is maintained throughout the 24-hour cycle. No special tools or filters are required.
Ease of installation
Several features are available that make installation easy:
• Power and alarm connections have cable connectors which can be removed even when the camera is mounted.
• A built-in test pattern generator produces signals to test and fault-find cables.
• A multi-language On-Screen Display (OSD) increases user compatibility.
Six independent, pre-programmed operating modes support typical applications, but are fully programmable for individual situations. Switching between modes is easy via Bilinx or the external alarm input.
A high efficiency power supply improves maximum operating temperature.
Video Motion Detection
The built-in video motion detector allows you to select a programmable area with individual thresholds. The global scene change detector minimizes false alarms caused by sudden lighting condition changes, such as switching on or off the indoor or security lighting. When motion is detected, alarms can be displayed in the video signal, the output relay can be closed or an alarm message can be transmitted via Bilinx.
By increasing the integration time up to 10 times on the CCD, the effective sensitivity is dramatically enhanced. This is especially useful when relying only on moonlight for illumination.
