Bosch VTI-4085-V521 overview

  • 1Description

The black AN 4000 Series Day/Night WDR IR Outdoor Bullet Camera from Bosch is a compact, stylish surveillance camera that offers high-quality resolution in variable lighting conditions. Its high performance 960H 1/3” DS (double scan) CCD sensor offers a resolution of 720 TVL. The WDR function ensures the best image performance under difficult (high contrast) lighting conditions.

This AN 4000 series Bullet Camera is supplied ready to operate. It is suitable for challenging situations where fine tuning or special settings are required. The camera parameters can be individually set using the control buttons on the camera and an OSD for easy installation.


The camera features a high resolution 960H 1/3" DS sensor and IK08-rated, vandal-resistant and IP66-rated, water-resistant enclosure. The camera and included mounting bracket sport a black finish, while the sunshield sports a silver grey finish. Camera features include true WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) and enhanced Digital Noise Reduction.

Detail in Extreme Lighting

In harsh lighting, the difference between the brightest and the darkest parts of a scene can be extreme. To capture clear pictures 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 camera combines these dual shutter images, mixing pixels from each exposure to produce the most detailed image possible.

Built-in IR Illuminator

This integrated IR camera has 10 infrared LEDs providing up to 328' (100m) of night vision. The IR light pattern is optimized using special LED lenses to significantly improve light performance at the sides and in the corners of the image.

Day / Night Mode

The true day / night feature provides enhanced night viewing. The mechanical IR filter switches from color to monochrome mode automatically by sensing the illumination level.

Picture Performance

There are many settings available to help fine-tune the picture performance to match your installation environment. These include BLC (to automatically and dynamically compensates for strong backlight), HLC (to reduces glare from highlight areas), True Wide Dynamic Range (to extend dynamic range to see bright and dark details simultaneously), Contrast and Sharpness (to enhance details in bright or misty scenes), and Dynamic Noise Reduction (to dynamically reduce noise in the picture).

Privacy Masking

Fifteen different privacy zones allow specific parts of a scene to be blocked. Pre-program any part of the scene to be masked.

Video Motion Detection

The built-in video motion detector allows you to select four programmable areas with sensitivity thresholds. When motion is detected, alarms can be displayed in video signals.

Typical Applications

This day / night camera can be used in museums and art galleries, shopping centers, office, schools, colleges. universities, and petrol and gas stations.

    Bosch VTI-4085-V521 reviews

    AN 4000 Series Day/Night WDR IR Outdoor Bullet Camera with 5 to 50mm Varifocal Lens is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very good camera with some limitations. Good Camera with good night view, easy to setup, however the field is narrow forcing you to place the camera far away (if you can) to cover a wider area which in turn it rather limits the night ability. This review is based on covering a wide area such the side of a building rather than focusing on a spot and on a 6 week experience with the camera, I cannot comment on the reliability other that I prefer the known Sony quality. There is another difficulty that I noticed when I tried to position the camera, because the pivot ball is sunken too deep it limits your fine placing ability some what. I did not have that concern with the previous camera that it replaced. Overall the picture quality is sharp, vivid and clear. Remember, if you cannot place the camera far away, you may not be happy if you want to cover a larger area..

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again This integrated IR camera has 10 infrared LEDs providing up to 328' and a 5 to 50mm Varifocal Lens. Great for distance recording. I use this to secure my front gate that is 150' away. Easy to adjust Lens because of the easy access levelers located on the bottom of camera.
