Day/Night FlexiDome 2x Camera (Surface Mount)

The Bosch VDN-498V06-21S Day/Night FlexiDome 2x Camera (Surface Mount), with a 1/3” CCD image sensor and a 6-50mm (f/1.6) varifocal lens, delivers high-quality imagery at a resolution up to 540TVL.

Equipped with the pan/tilt/rotation mechanism, the FlexiDome 2x Camera allows you to select the required field-of-view for improved image capture. The auto black feature increases the visibility of details in mist or fog conditions where the scene contrast is less than full range. Backlight compensation adjusts video gain to correct the exposure when the object being captured is in front of a bright light.

VDN-498V06-21S features include:

  • 1/3" CCD image sensor and 6-50mm (f/1.6) varifocal lens
  • Resolution - up to 540TVL
  • Pan/tilt/rotation mechanism allows you to select the required field-of-view for improved image capture
  • Auto black feature - increases the visibility of details in mist or fog conditions where the scene contrast is less than full range
  • Bilinx technology - allows bi-directional communication and enables you to change the camera settings, check status, and update firmware from anywhere via the coaxial cable; uses the standard video cable to transmit alarm and status messages, improving the overall performance of the camera and reducing the service/installation time
  • 2x-Dynamic and SmartBLC - pixel-by-pixel analysis provides detailed image and SmartBLC compensates the image without compromising the dynamic range or any additional set-up
  • IR cut filter switches between color and B&W as per the changes in ambient lighting
  • Auto white balance - adjusts the red and blue signals in the MWB mode by taking a standard white color reference to get the most natural colors
  • Privacy masking - provides 4 different privacy zones, enabling you to mask a specific portion of a scene for security
  • Default shutter speed - allows you to capture fast moving objects when sufficient light is available
  • Programmable modes - supports up to 6 independent, pre-programmed operating modes which can be easily switched via Bilinx or the external alarm input
  • Built-in video motion detection - enables you to select a programmable area with individual threshold; on motion detection, the alarms can be displayed in video signals or an alarm message can be sent via Bilinx
  • SensUp dynamic - improves the sensitivity by increasing the integration time up to 10 times on the CCD, useful when relying only on moonlight for illumination
  • 120 dB dynamic range
  • LineLock and phase adjustment feature for AC operation
  • OSD offers intuitive and convenient interface for easy operation
  • Includes a low-impact surface mount
  • Standard indoor enclosure with sturdy construction
  • Remote control - bi-directional coaxial communication
  • Ideal for use in schools, banks, prisons, retailers, and commercial buildings
