The VDN-5085-V311 FLEXIDOME AN Outdoor 5000 Dome Camera from Bosch features a high performance 960H 1/3-inch CCD sensor that helps the camera to achieve a resolution of 720 TVL. This sensor also generates two 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 most detailed image possible. The superior wide dynamic range for all lighting conditions reveals details previously unseen.

The cast-aluminum housing, polycarbonate dome, and hardened inner liner can withstand the equivalent of 120 lb of force. The enclosure contains the full-featured camera and integral varifocal lens. Ideal for outdoor use, the camera is protected against water and dust to IP66 and NEMA Type 4X standards. The camera enclosure provides the extra protection necessary for applications such as schools, banks, prisons, parking garages, retail and industrial buildings.

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. 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.
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 the video signal or an alarm message can be transmitted via Bilinx.
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.
Privacy Masking
Fifteen different privacy zones allow specific parts of a scene to be blocked. The camera also allows pre-programming of any part of the scene to be masked.
Ease of Installation
The lens wizard helps focus the lens at the maximum opening to ensure 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. Cable compensation is used to avoid the need for amplifiers in long distance coaxial connections up to 3000'. It can prevent the image quality degradation caused by signal losses from long cable lengths.
Suitable Picture Performance
There are many settings available to help fine-tune the picture performance to match your installation environment like smart BLC, peak white invert, contrast and sharpness, SensUp, default shutter, and dynamic noise reduction.
