Munich – With the development of its next generation of mega pixel cameras, DINION starlight HD 720p and FLEXIDOME starlight HD 720p RD, Bosch Security Systems can now introduce cameras that are specifically designed for high performance in extreme low-light conditions. They represent a breakthrough in light sensitivity in cameras; showing color images where others can show only black and white and showing black and white where others show no image at all.

HD security breakthrough
With their high sensitivity in both color (0.017 lux) and monochrome modes (0.0057 lux), the HD cameras work with minimal ambient light, delivering clear images in a multitude of applications, even where poor lighting is the principle challenge. The 60 fps frame rate helps capture fast-moving objects in applications such as traffic and casinos.

Breakthrough imaging
The starlight cameras come with Content Based Imaging Technology (CBIT). This Bosch innovation intelligently combines information from the sensor, image pipe, encoder and intelligent video analysis (IVA) to dynamically optimize the image for every scene. Bosch CBIT-enabled cameras feature two special modes: Intelligent Auto Exposure (iAE), which ensures the optimal image of important objects and iDNR provides the most usable image possible by cleverly optimizing the detail-to-bandwidth ratio.
By using this intelligent noise reduction technology (iDNR), the image clarity is improved, and the storage requirements are reduced significantly. The 720p starlight HD camera requires up to 30% less bandwidth than other 720p and SD cameras.

Use everywhere, view from anywhere
The unique FLEXIDOME RD is designed for demanding, outdoor applications. The rugged cast-aluminum dome housing can withstand the equivalent of 55 kg (120 lbs) of force and the extended operating temperature range of the camera makes it ideal for any application – extreme temperatures and vandal-prone areas are only two examples. A choice of installation options includes flush, wall, and pipe mounting. The extensive range of factory-installed Super Resolution HD lenses covers a focal length range from 1.8mm ultra wide angle to a 40mm telephoto.

By applying the Bosch Dynamic Transcoding Technology, HD quality images can be viewed from any location that has access to the internet, even if the available bandwidth is only 128 kBit/s. The video streams can be viewed from your iPad or browser, the free Bosch Viewing Client, or the Bosch Video Management System.

Easy migration to High Definition (HD)
Because they can deliver consistently reliable images in all lighting conditions, the 720p HD cameras are expected to replace SD cameras and as such, can be considered the new standard for professional video surveillance systems. “The introduction of these high-performance HD cameras at a similar price level as SD cameras underlines our commitment to constantly improve our range of security cameras, and accelerates the transition from analog to IP,” says Constant Rutten, Product Manager at Bosch Security Systems.
