The Bosch VG4-324-ECE0C AutoDome PTZ Camera System consists of a 36x Day/Night PTZ camera, outdoor pendant housing with a clear bubble, and a Corner mount. Equipped with modules such as a CPU, camera, housing, communications, and power supply, the system allows you to hot-swap the modules without removing the dome and wiring. It is ideal for locations where there is frequent installation and removal of cameras. Equipped with replaceable modules, the AutoDome also offers easy installation and servicing.
Supporting a variety of standard and optional video and data transmission methods, including Bilinx (over coax and UTP), fiber, and TCP/ IP over Ethernet, the AutoDome PTZ Camera System offers remote control, configuration, and firmware updates over these cables. It eliminates image quality degradation due to signal loss and long cable lengths.
Equipped with 1/4" Exview HAD CCD sensor, the 36x Day/Night PTZ camera offers a resolution of 768 x 494. It features MPEG4 compression technology, and provides DVD-quality 4CIF video at frame rates up to 25/30 (PAL/NTSC) images per second (IPS). In addition to an autofocus function, the camera has an auto-iris that adjusts the amount of light entering the lens. The autoscaling automatically sets up the camera in a default position to view the object at the correct size, and the autotracking feature senses an object under the dome and automatically rotates and flips the camera. Provided with an IR filter, the D/N camera offers sensitivity of 30 IRE (day) and 50 IRE (night). The SensUp control feature automatically extends the shutter speed up to 1 second.
The AutoDome has 360° per second pan/tilt speeds, and supports 99 pre-position and 2 styles of guard tours - preset and record/playback, and the preset tour can support up to 99 pre-positions with a configurable dwell time between pre-positions. You can customize the order and frequency of these presets. The record / playback allows you to store and playback operator’s movements such as pan, tilt, and zoom activities. The dome provides support for 2 recorded tours with a combined duration of 15 min. It supports menu languages such as English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, and Polish.
Equipped with advanced alarm control for efficient management of alarms, the AutoDome PTZ Camera System offers up to 7 alarm inputs, out of which, 2 alarms are set for programmable analog inputs for EOLR (End-of-Line Resistor) supervision in security applications and detect any opened, closed or tampered circuits. It offers 4 programmable outputs, 1 relay rated at 2A and 3 additional open collectors for driving external devices.
Provided with superior privacy masking, the VG4-324-ECE0C AutoDome PTZ Camera System offers a total of 24 individual privacy masks, with up to 8 displayed in the same scene. It allows you to mask up to 5 corners with black, white, and blurred colors. The IP module offers bandwidth control and multicasting capabilities and efficiently manages bandwidth and storage requirements. Equipped with a tri-streaming feature, the camera provides 2 independent MPEG-4 streams and a JPEG stream simultaneously. It allows you to stream high-quality images for live viewing and recording at a reduced frame rate, and can simultaneously stream JPEG images to a remote PDA device.
On installing the CTFID (Configuration Tool for Imaging Devices), the camera settings and firm update can be done via an embedded web server. The advanced built-in diagnostics ensure easy servicing and minimize downtime. With the OSD (On Screen Display), the user can easily and accurately check critical parameters such as internal temperature and input voltage level, and verify that the dome is functioning within acceptable operating limits.
Built with rugged polycarbonate bubble, recessed set screws, and a recessed bubble latch, the outdoor pendant protects the camera from vandalism and unexpected surges of power. Being IP66 rated, the dome is dust-tight and water-proof. It has an operating temperature range up to -40°F (-40°C).
