The white Bosch VG5-614-ECS AutoDome 600 Series 36x Outdoor Pendant Camera (PAL) comes with a clear acrylic bubble and a sunshield. It is a PTZ camera that delivers high-quality video in indoor and outdoor applications. The camera features day/night functionality for capturing high quality images in low light conditions. The camera captures clear images at a maximum resolution of 550 TVL, thanks to the 1/4" Exview HAD CCD sensor and 3.4-122.4mm varifocal lens. In addition, it also offers an optical zoom of 36x and digital zoom of 12x.
The camera features WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) technology that allows for image capture in both bright and dark areas in the same frame. WDR ensures that bright areas are not saturated and that dark areas are not too dark. The camera is suited for video applications and incorporates progressive scan technology for capturing smooth and clear images.
The camera can be used under a sodium vapor lamp (a street lamp or tunnel lamp, for example) for capturing footage. The images under these conditions may have a yellowish tint, which may make identification difficult. In the Sodium Vapor White Balance mode, the camera automatically compensates to restore objects to their original color.
The pendant camera offers variable pan and tilt speeds. The AutoPivot feature ensures camera control and viewing at all zoom levels. It features 99 user-defined presets as well as tour and AutoPan modes. It is equipped with AutoTrack II motion tracking software, built-in image stabilization, motion detection, and an improved alarm handling rules engine.
The camera supports standard video and data transmission methods, including Bilinx (over coax and UTP), and fiber optic. Remote control, configuration, and firmware updates can also be performed over these cables. Cable compensation provides extended coaxial and UTP distance runs while preventing the image quality degradation caused by signal loss from long cable lengths.
