The white Bosch VG5-623-ECS AutoDome 600 Series 28x Outdoor Pendant Camera (NTSC) comes with a clear acrylic bubble and a sunshield. It is an easy to install PTZ camera that delivers good video in outdoor application. The camera features day/night functionality for high quality images in low light conditions. This discrete, high-speed dome camera ensures reliable, uncompromised functionality in diverse environments across various applications.
The AutoDome delivers state-of-the-art technology and features that far exceed other PTZ cameras. The cameras achieve a high horizontal resolution of 550 TVL enabling the reproduction of clear and detailed images.
It features WDR (WideDynamicRange) technology that allows for the capture of clear images from both bright and dark areas in the same frame. The WDR ensures that bright areas are not saturated and that dark areas are not too dark. The camera is suited for moving imaging applications. The progressive scan technology incorporated into the camera provides smooth and clear images when viewing images from a moving camera.
The camera is a good performer when shooting under a sodium vapor lamp (a street lamp or tunnel lamp, for example). The images under these conditions may have a yellowish tint, which may make identification difficult. In the Sodium Vapor White Balance mode, the AutoDome automatically compensates for the light from a sodium vapor lamp to restore objects to their original color.
It offers variable pan and tilt speeds, and the AutoPivot feature ensures optimal camera control and viewing at all zoom levels. These high-performance zoom autofocus cameras incorporate the latest digital imaging technology with sensitivity and resolution. It features 99 user-defined presets as well as tour and AutoPan modes. The camera adds real intelligence to your video surveillance applications. It is equipped with AutoTrack II, Bosch’s motion tracking software, built-in image stabilization, motion detection, and a sophisticated alarm handling rules engine, the camera incorporates advanced and good video features.
The camera supports standard and video and data transmission methods (sold separately), including Bilinx (over coax and UTP) and fiber optic. The remote control, configuration, and firmware updates can also be performed over these cables, offering you unparalleled control of your cameras. The cable compensation provides extended coaxial and UTP distance runs while preventing the image quality degradation caused by signal losses from long cable lengths.
High-Performance PTZ Day/Night Camera
The AutoDome delivers image control and quality, which are integral aspects of any PTZ dome camera. It has a 1/4" CCD sensor, with 4CIF/D1 resolution and sensitivity below 1.0 lux and comes with 28x optical zoom lens and offer a full 12x digital zoom. It provides 550 TVL of horizontal resolution for good clarity and image detail. The camera also incorporates technology that dramatically improves the dynamic range by 128 times. Also known as WDR (wide-dynamic range), it results in clear image reproduction in extreme high-contrast environments. The AutoScaling (proportional zoom) and AutoPivot (automatically rotates and flips the camera) features ensure optimal control.
Day/Night capabilities and sensitivity make the camera a good performer in all lighting conditions. In low light, this camera automatically switches from color to monochrome by removing the IR filter to boost the infrared illumination sensitivity, while maintaining high image quality. For operation in the darkest conditions, the SensUp control feature automatically reduces the shutter speed to as little as 1 second. This increases sensitivity by more than 50 times. It is powder coated with standard sand finish.
Accurate Control and Positioning
With super-quick, it features 360° per-second pan and 100° per second tilt speeds. The camera supports 99 pre-position and 2 styles of guard tours; preset and record/playback. The preset tour has capability for up to 99 pre-positions with a configurable dwell time between pre-positions, and can be customized as to the order and frequency each preset is visited. The AutoDome also provides support for 2 recorded tours, which have a combined duration of 15 minutes of movements. These are recorded macros of an operator's movements, including pan, tilt, and zoom activities, and can be played back in a continuous manner. The supported menu languages include; English, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
The camera contains an advanced DSP that provides real-time video processing for incredibly smooth object tracking. AutoTrack II utilizes virtual masking technology. These invisible masks are created to act just like privacy masks, except that only the AutoTrack can see them and it knows to ignore any motion behind them. This enables it to ignore extraneous background motion, such as a tree blowing in the wind, thereby making it suitable for outdoor application.
Video Motion Detection (VMD)
With AutoDome, you can create a region of interest within a preset position where motion is to be detected. The camera supports a total of 10 individual regions of interest (1 per preposition). The VMD also takes advantage of virtual masking to ignore areas of unwanted motion.
Image stabilization becomes critical to eliminate movement caused by unstable camera mounts. A mere 1/3" of movement of the camera mount can shift the field of view by more than 20' (6.0m) when the camera is zoomed to a high value. This can render images unusable. Image stabilization algorithms included with the AutoDome reduces camera shake in both the vertical and horizontal axis, resulting in image clarity (pixel displacement up to ±10% for frequencies up to 10 Hz). The image stabilization solution does not reduce camera sensitivity.
The AutoDome camera takes alarm handling to new levels of flexibility and power.
Inputs and Outputs
The camera can handle 7 alarm inputs, 2 of which are analog inputs that can be programmed for EOLR (End-of-Line Resistor) supervision whenever true security applications require it. These inputs enable the dome to sense if the contact is opened or closed and whether the wire has been tampered with (either by being cut or shorted). In addition, the AutoDome supports 4 outputs; 1 relay rated at 2A and 3 additional open collectors for driving external devices. Each can be programmed individually.
Advanced Alarm Control
The AutoDome advanced alarm control uses sophisticated rules-based logic to determine how to manage alarms. In its most basic form, a rule could define which inputs should activate which output(s). In a more complex form, inputs and outputs can be combined with pre-defined or user-specified keyboard commands to perform advanced dome functions. There is virtually no limit to the number of combinations that you can program, making the standard software in the dome ready for any application.
Superior Privacy Masking
The camera allows for a total of 24 individual privacy masks, with up to 8 displayed in the same scene. Unlike conventional privacy masks, these can each be programmed with 3, 4, or 5 corners to cover more complex shapes. Each mask changes size and shape smoothly and quickly; ensuring that the covered object cannot be seen. You also have a choice of colors: black, white, and blurred. Blurred comes in handy when privacy is an issue, but determining the presence of motion is still required.
Ease of Installation and Servicing
It has been designed for quick and easy installation. The housing features recessed screws and latches for increased tamper resistance. The outdoor pendant housing is rated to provide IP66 protection and comes fully assembled with a sunshield and ready for wall or pipe applications with the proper mounting hardware (sold separately). In addition, the pendant housing comes equipped with a low-impact, high resolution acrylic bubble for enhanced image clarity.
The outdoor pendant housing provide an operating temperature range down to -40°F (-40°C). The XT extreme temperature kit (sold separately) allows an AutoDome to operate in temperatures down to -76°F (-60°C), ensuring reliable operation in even the harshest environments.
The software, the CTFID (Configuration Tool for Imaging Devices), allows operators or technicians to control the PTZ, change camera settings, and even update firmware from virtually anywhere without the need for additional wiring. The camera has advanced built-in diagnostics to simplify service and minimize downtime. Using the OSD (On Screen Display), a technician can quickly and easily check critical parameters (such as internal temperature and input voltage level) to verify that the dome is functioning within acceptable operating limits. If video is not present, a local inspection of three diagnostic LEDs at the camera site can identify the presence of video and control data.
