Delivering on its uncompromising vision for high-quality security solutions, Bosch Security Systems Inc. launched a high-definition (HD) video portfolio. Complete with fixed and pan-tilt-zoom cameras, video management software, storage solutions, and monitors, this new portfolio takes image quality to the next level. With Bosch HD video from scene to screen, operators can distinguish small features that are important for facial recognition and similar applications. “Now is the ideal time for introducing a complete HD solution for capturing, viewing, storing and managing HD video,” said Gert van Iperen of Bosch Security Systems. “And, all the products in our Bosch HD portfolio are specifically designed to deliver HD image quality. They feature advanced H.264 video compression, intuitive operator software, ONVIF conformance and a 16:9 aspect ratio.” Bosch HD cameras — including the AutoDome pan-tilt-zoom family, the Dinion and FlexiDome series of day/night fixed cameras, and the IP Camera 200 Series for small businesses — provide 720p or 1080p resolution and offer Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA) software to automatically process video signals and alert operators to potential security risks. The intuitive software offerings from Bosch allow security personnel to manage both HD and standard-definition (SD) appliances seamlessly in the same system. For viewing video, Bosch professional HD LCD monitors automatically adapt to the input resolution of the incoming video signal, provide full HD resolution and support a 16:9 image format for improved situational awareness.
