The NDN-498 FlexiDome2X IP Dome Camera from Bosch features a 1/3" progressive scan CCD image sensor and a 2.8 to 10mm varifocal lens. Equipped with 20-bit DSP with 2X-dynamic, the camera has a wide dynamic range for sharper, more detailed images with enhanced color reproduction. The camera offers simultaneous quad video streaming including two H.264 streams, one I-frame recording stream, and one MJPEG stream. It also supports features such as multi-casting, Internet streaming, and iSCSI recording.

The FlexiDome2X IP camera has built-in video motion detection and additional processing power for video content analysis systems. With Dinion2X digital imaging technology the camera is able to capture details in both bright light and deep shadow simultaneously. The camera has a service mode for easy installation using on-body control buttons and an analog video output on the camera as an alternative to configuration over IP. The service mode is activated by pressing a button on the camera. This routes the video to the analog output, bypassing the IP video output.

The cast-aluminum housing, polycarbonate dome, and hardened inner liner can withstand the equivalent to 120 lb of force. The camera also conforms to IP66 (NEMA‑4X) standards for protection against water and dust. Suitable for indoor and outdoor installations, the camera comes with a surface mounting option.

Programmable Modes

Six independent, pre-programmed operating modes support typical applications, but are fully programmable for individual situations.

Day/Night Switching

In night mode, the camera enhances low-light viewing by switching the IR filter out of the optical path and providing a monochrome image. The camera can switch from color to monochrome mode automatically by sensing the illumination level, manually via the alarm input, or remotely via a web browser. An internal, through-the-lens IR detector enhances monochrome mode stability by preventing the camera from returning to color mode when IR illumination is dominant.

Privacy Masking

Four different privacy zones allow specific parts of a scene to be blocked. A mask for any part of the scene can be pre-programmed.

Default Shutter

The default shutter speed allows the camera to capture fast moving objects when sufficient light is available. When light levels fall and other adjustments have been exhausted, the shutter speed reverts to a standard setting to maintain sensitivity.

SensUp Dynamic

By increasing the integration time up to 10 times on the CCD, the effective sensitivity is dramatically enhanced. This is especially useful when relying only on moonlight for illumination.

Efficient Bandwidth Use

The camera uses H.264 (Main Profile) compression, bandwidth throttling, and multi-casting capabilities to manage bandwidth and storage requirements.

Storage Management

Attached to the network, the camera can use iSCSI targets directly without any additional recording software. The recording capabilities of the system can be further enhanced by using the Bosch Video Recording Manager. The camera also supports local recording on a microSD card (not included). This can be used for local alarm recording or for Automatic Network Replenishment (ANR) to improve the overall reliability of video recording.

Built-In Video Content Analysis

Built-in MOTION+ video motion analysis system is a suitable solution for applications where basic video content analysis features are required. This algorithm is based on pixel change and includes object size filtering capabilities and tamper detection capabilities.

Built-In Intelligence Video Analysis

This algorithm is based on digital imaging technology that uses multi-level image analysis of pixels, texture, and object direction.

ONVIF Conformance

FlexiDome2X IP camera conforms to the ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) specifications for third-party integration.

Access Security

Various security levels are available for accessing the network, the camera, and the data channels. As well as password protection with three levels, 802.1x authentication using a RADIUS is supported. Use HTTPS with an SSL certificate stored in the camera to secure Web browser access. For data protection, the video and audio communication channels can be independently AES-encrypted with 128-bit keys by installing the optional Encryption Site License.


The camera is suitable for applications in multiple environments such as, correctional facilities, traffic monitoring (air, land, and sea), hotels and clubs, commercial and government buildings, and border control.
