Bosch Security Systems introduces the Dinion infrared imager, a camera designed for perimeter surveillance and other outdoor applications that “provides even illumination across the entire scene to eliminate hotspot foregrounds and underexposed backgrounds,” the company says in a written statement.
The Dinion imager offers “variable field illumination” which enables the system to consistently deliver high-quality video even in harshly lit, or completely dark environments, Bosch says.
Available in analog and internet protocol (IP) models, the Dinion infrared imager delivers up to 160 meters (525 feet) of detection level performance in low, or no, light, the company says. The imager is designed to improve perimeter protection at critical sites, such as energy, transportation and defense applications, and the imager also achieves classification level surveillance up to 120 meters (390 feet) at night, thereby making them useful along a fence line, Bosch says.
The 2X-dynamic technology provides 20-bit processing, twice the power of conventional cameras, and wide “dynamic range sensors” for unparalleled image quality in all lighting conditions, the company says.
The variable field illumination provides maximum flexibility by allowing on-site adjustment of the infrared intensity and beam shape to match the coverage area, improving image quality in the dark and simplifying installation, Bosch says.
