The new FLEXIDOME IP corner 9000 MP camera from Bosch is for observing places with poor lighting which are prone to vandalism. The product is suitable the makers say for bus stations, waiting rooms, and hospitals.
While the fundamental problem may be poor lighting or even darkness, it may be still necessary to cover an area with a minimum number of cameras, while providing extra illumination as well as resistance to vandalism or tampering. The FLEXIDOME camera features wide-angle optics for detail, plus a wide-angle fisheye lens for covering every corner. To supply additional illumination as needed, integrated active infrared LEDs maintain video clarity even in darkness, it is claimed. Thanks to its non-grip design, the camera is said to be difficult to tamper with. The product comes with the latest Content Based Imaging Technology, which lowers bandwidth consumption and thus storage costs by up to 50 percent by way of intelligent Dynamic Image Noise Reduction (iDNR). This feature suppresses all irrelevant image noise artifacts, therefore according to the firm reducing the bandwidth required.
Arnaud Lannes, Product Marketing Manager Video Systems at Bosch Security Systems, says: “Providing better security in single-room surroundings or areas with critical light conditions is an increasingly important requirement for video surveillance. The new FLEXIDOME IP corner 9000 MP camera represents a solution not only for care facilities, but also for industrial environments that need extra protection.”
The camera integrates with a range of security software and recording products from Bosch, such as the Video Management System BVMS and DIVAR IP recorders, as well as those of third-party suppliers, as it is ONVIF compliant. The camera is also supported by the Integration Partner Program, which gives partners access to online tools for integration.

The new camera will be available from December 2013 onwards.
