Bosch VG5-624-ECS overview

  • 1Description

The Bosch VG5-624-ECS AutoDome 36x NTSC Indoor/Outdoor PTZ Pendant Camera captures clear images in both day and night conditions thanks to the 1/4" CCD sensor and a minimum illumination of 0.104 lux in night mode. In addition to the 550 TVL horizontal resolution for amazing image clarity, the camera also incorporates Wide Dynamic Range technology that ensures clear image reproduction in high-contrast environments. 

Thanks to the 36x optical zoom, the AutoDome camera captures distant objects with amazing clarity. Moreover, the progressive scan ensures smooth and clear images even when the object is in motion.  The unique Sodium Vapor White Balance feature ensures vivid color reproduction in images by automatically compensating for the light from a sodium vapor lamp when the AutoDome camera is used in dimly lit conditions, for instance, for capturing images under street lighting. 

Image stabilization algorithms of the VG5-624-ECS camera reduce both the vertical and horizontal camera shake, resulting in blur-free imagery.  You can now create up to 10  "regions of interest" (one per preset position) within a preset position where motion is to be specifically detected. Video Motion Detection also takes advantage of virtual masking to ignore areas of unwanted motion. 

The pendant housing (outdoor) is IP66 rated to provide protection even in harsh weather conditions and come fully assembled with a sunshield. This housing can be used for wall or pipe applications using the proper mounting hardware (sold separately). This discrete, high-speed dome camera ensures reliable and uncompromised functionality in diverse environments across various applications.
