New DINION and FLEXIDOME starlight—the most light-sensitive megapixel cameras on the market


The DINION and FLEXIDOME starlight HD 720p cameras are specifically designed for high-performance in extreme low-light conditions. Representing a breakthrough in light sensitivity in both color (0.017 lux) and monochrome (0.0057 lux), the 1 MP / 720p HD cameras surpass the low-light performance of even standard definition (SD) cameras. They transmit color images when other cameras show only monochrome and deliver monochrome video when others show no image at all.

The cameras deliver 1 MP / 720p HD resolution at up to 60 images per second for optimum performance in scenes with fast-moving objects. To overcome challenging lighting conditions, Content-Based Imaging Technology (CBIT) uses Bosch’s Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA) to enhance image quality. CBIT automatically detects important objects—such as faces, people and vehicles—and dynamically re-tunes the imaging settings to ensure the most useful, highly-detailed video of objects of interest are captured. In addition, intelligent Auto Exposure (iAE) improves the contrast of important objects in the scene in both bright and dark areas.

Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction (iDNR) actively analyzes the contents of a scene to reduce bandwidth and storage requirements—improving compression by up to 30 percent compared with 4CIF SD cameras with the same settings. The result is reduced-bandwidth streams that retain a high image quality and smooth motion.

The cameras have a very intuitive user interface that allows fast and easy configuration. Automatic lens wizards make it simple for an installer to accurately zoom and focus the cameras for both day and night operation, and the Automatic Varifocal feature means that the zoom can be changed without opening the camera.

With a selection of available models, you can choose from a fixed camera, rugged dome or vandal-resistant dome.

Available lenses for the fixed camera models include a 3.8-13 mm varifocal lens, a 1.8-3 mm varifocal IR corrected lens or a 9-40 mm varifocal IR corrected lens. The camera operates in temperatures ranging from -4° to +122° F.

FLEXIDOME starlight HD 720p RD

The unique dome is designed for demanding, outdoor applications. The rugged cast-aluminum housing can withstand the equivalent of 120 lbs of force, and its IP66/NEMA 4X rating ensures protection against water and dust. The extended operating temperature ranges from -58° to +122° F. 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.

FLEXIDOME starlight HD 720p VR

The classic, compact FLEXIDOME design is ideal for indoor or outdoor use where the housing size and appearance are important. The cast-aluminum housing, polycarbonate window and hardened inner liner, can withstand the equivalent of 120 lbs of force, and its IP66/NEMA 4X rating ensures protection against water and dust. The operating temperature ranges from -22° to +122° F. Lens options include a 3-9 mm or 10-23 mm automatic varifocal Super Resolution lens.
