Bosch VBN-5085-C21 overview

  • 1Description

The DINION AN 5000 960H True D/N Indoor Box Camera combines the 720TVL high-performance 960H 1/3” CCD sensor, the high dynamic range engine, and the advanced image processing technology to provide a detailed image with accurate color reproduction, even under harsh lighting conditions. The true day/night performance ensures the highest image quality at any time of the day. The camera is easy to install and ready to use, and offers the best solution for demanding scene conditions.

With 6 distinct pre-programmed operational modes, you can easily recall the mode that suits your application for an optimized performance. The lens wizard ensures accurate back-focusing for sharp pictures. For challenging situations where fine tuning or special settings are required, the camera parameters can be individually set using the control buttons on the side of the camera and an Onscreen Display (OSD).

Note: This camera does not include a lens.

Detail in Extreme Lighting
In harsh lighting, the difference between the brightest and the darkest parts of a scene can be extreme. To produce a clear picture in these conditions, the CCD sensor in the camera generates 2 images; one long exposure to resolve details in the scene’s darkest areas, and one short exposure to resolve details in the scene’s brightest areas. The advanced image processing technology in the camera combines these dual shutter images, mixing pixels from each exposure to produce the quite detailed images. The superior wide dynamic range for all lighting conditions reveals details previously unseen.
Day/Night Mode
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.
Ease of Installation
The lens wizard helps focus the lens at the maximum opening to ensure that proper back-focus is maintained throughout the 24-hour cycle. No special tools or filters are required. 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. Further, installation is made easy as the power and alarm cable connectors can be removed even when the camera is mounted.

It has a built-in test pattern generator that produces signals to test and fault-find cables. The camera has a multi-language OSD (On-Screen Display) and a high-efficiency power supply, which improves the maximum operating temperature. These features make installation easier. Cable compensation is used to avoid the need for amplifiers in long distance coaxial connections up to 1,000m (3,000’). It can prevent the image quality degradation caused by signal losses from long cable lengths.

Bilinx Technology
Bilinx is a bidirectional communication capability embedded in the video signal of this camera. Installers can check status, change camera settings, and even update firmware from virtually anywhere along the video cable. It reduces service and installation time, provides for more accurate set-up and adjustment, and improves the overall performance. It also uses the standard video cable to transmit alarm and status messages by providing superior performance without additional installation steps.
Ideal Picture Performance
There are many settings available to help fine-tune the picture performance to match your installation environment. These include the smart BLC that automatically and dynamically compensates for strong backlight, Peak White Invert that reduces the glare from highlight areas, contrast and sharpness that enhances the details in bright or misty scenes, SensUp that dramatically enhances the sensitivity by a factor of 10, default shutter setting to improve the motion performance in auto exposure mode, and dynamic noise reduction to reduce the noice in the picture.
Privacy Masking
Specific parts of a scene can be blocked by pre-programming any part of the scene with the help of the fifteen privacy zones provided in the camera.
Video Motion Detection
The built-in video motion detector allows you to select 4 programmable areas with sensitivity thresholds. 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.
Typical applications
Entrance foyer or lobby with glare
Outdoor perimeters includes low light and IR light
Traffic monitoring which includes highway, traffic intersections and emergency response coordination
Car parks (outdoor)
Restricted access locations like prisons, ports/freight terminals, military facilities and border control and homeland
Casino and gambling centers
