The FlexiDome 2X day/night camera is the ultimate solution for virtually any indoor or outdoor surveillance application. This vandal-resistant dome camera uses a 1/3-inch, wide dynamic range CCD sensor and incorporates digital signal processing for outstanding picture performance. The 20-bit Image Processing technology enhances sensitivity; the 2X-Dynamic extends the dynamic range. This unique combination provides a sharper, more detailed image with outstanding accuracy in color reproduction even under harsh lighting conditions.
The FlexiDome 2X camera is an ideal solution for many surveillance applications, even under the most challenging lighting conditions. The day/night feature ensures the highest image quality possible at any time. Depending on the available light the camera will automatically switch from color to monochrome. The FlexiDome camera is supplied ready to operate. Six distinct pre-programmed operational modes are stored in the camera. Recall the mode that suits your application for optimized performance.
Detail in extreme lighting
In harsh lighting, the difference between the brightest and the darkest parts of a scene can be extreme. To produce a clear picture in these conditions, the CCD sensor in the FlexiDome 2X generates two images; one long exposure to resolve details in the scene's darkest areas, and one short exposure to resolve details in the scene's brightest areas. The Digital Signal Processor (DSP) of the FlexiDome 2X combines these dual shutter images, mixing pixels from each exposure to produce the most detailed image possible.
20-bit Image Processing technology
The highly accurate digital signal processing optimally captures the detail in both bright highlights and deep shadows simultaneously. By combining 20-bit Image Processing technology and wide dynamic range, the FlexiDome 2X maximizes the information visible in the picture even with strong backlighting.
2X-Dynamic and SmartBLC
Using 2X-Dynamic technology, pixel-by-pixel analysis provides the user with the most detailed information. Turn on SmartBLC to automatically compensate the image without the need for complicated set-up or without compromising dynamic range.
The day/night mode provides enhanced night viewing by increasing the IR sensitivity. The IR filter can switch from color to monochrome automatically by either sensing the illumination level or via the alarm input. The filter can be switched manually via the alarm input, through the camera menu or via the Bilinx coaxial control interface. An internal through-the-lens IR detector enhances the monochrome mode stability, as it prevents reverting to the color mode when IR illumination is dominant. IR contrast is also measured and used to handle reflected IR light in outdoor scenes.
The default shutter speed captures 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.
Bilinx is a bidirectional communication capability embedded in the video signal of the Bosch FlexiDome camera. Technicians can check status, change camera settings and even update firmware from virtually anywhere along the video cable. Bilinx reduces service and installation time, provides for more accurate set-up and adjustment, and improves overall performance. In addition, Bilinx uses the standard video cable to transmit alarm and status messages, providing superior performance without additional installation steps.
Six independent, pre-programmed operating modes support typical applications, but are fully programmable for individual situations. Switching between modes is easy via Bilinx or the external alarm input.
Video motion detection
The built-in video motion detector allows you to select a programmable area with individual thresholds. The global scene change detector minimizes false alarms caused by sudden lighting condition changes, such as switching on or off the indoor or security lighting. When motion is detected, alarms can be displayed in the video signal, the output relay can be closed or an alarm message can be transmitted via Bilinx.
SensUp DynamicProduct Highlights
By increasing the integration time on the CCD, the effective sensitivity is dramatically enhanced. This is especially useful when relying only on moonlight for illumination.
