Bosch launch H.265 bullet cameras

Bosch has recently launched three new bullet cameras to ensure there is a bullet for any application.

The NBE-4502-AL and the NBE-6502-AL are 1080p infrared bullets. These robust, true day/night cameras provide high quality HD images for the most demanding security and surveillance network requirements with excellent performance 24/7. The built-in infrared LEDs provide quality night-time monitoring with 60m (196 feet) viewing distance in darkness. The NBE-5503-AL is the 5MP bullet version.

The robust aluminium housing on all the bullets provides high installation flexibility. Rated to IP67 standards the camera resists both water and dust ingress in tough environments. The 2.8 to 12mm AVF (Automatic Varifocal) lens allows users to choose the coverage area remotely. The automatic zoom/focus lens wizard makes it easy for an installer to accurately zoom and focus the camera for both day and night operation. The wizard is activated from a PC or the on-board camera push button making it easy to choose the workflow that is most suitable. The AVF (Automatic Varifocal) feature means that the zoom can be changed without opening the camera. The automatic motorised zoom/focus adjustment with 1:1 pixel mapping ensures the camera is always accurately focused.

The built-in video analysis reinforces the Intelligence at the Edge concept and now delivers even more powerful features. Essential Video Analytics are ideal for use in controlled environments with limited detection ranges. The system reliably detects, tracks and analyses objects and alerts users when predefined alarms are triggered. A smart set of alarm rules make complex tasks easy and keep false alarms to a minimum. Metadata is attached to the video to add sense and structure. This enables users to quickly retrieve the relevant images from hours of stored video. Metadata can also be used to deliver irrefutable forensic evidence or to optimise business processes based on people counting or crowd density information.

With an impressive 134dB Wide Dynamic Range to see details in bright and dark areas simultaneously the NBE-6502-AL Starlight option also delivers 60fps @ 1080p.


IDIS offer 12 megapixel super fisheye camera

As with all the IDIS network camera range - DirectIP true plug-and-play functionality and automatic network detection and device set-up result in a system that is quick, easy and cost effective to install.


Aiphone announce new stainless steel video entrance station

New from Aiphone the GT-DMB-N is a video entrance station with a stainless steel panel for the GT Series multi-tenant video intercom system. It is equipped with a PTZ camera which captures a 170° wide angle view to minimise blind spots. The numeric keypad allows for direct dialling and authorised entry access. A 3.5" colour LCD displays a greeting message, tenant directory and system status. The colour LCD may be set to energy saver mode and can be activated via the built-in motion sensor. A built-in user guide can be configured to display one of six languages. The guide provides operational assistance by displaying a visual icon together with the option for audible instruction.

The GT-DMB-N works on a common bus wiring system, carrying the call and communication functions on a 2-conductor wire and the video signal on a second 2-conductor wire. A separate power supply provides voltage for the LCD display whilst the power for the audio and video is supplied on the common bus wires.

The entrance station can be flush mounted (using a GF-3B back box) or surface mounted (using a SBX-GTDMB surface mount box). Both mounting boxes are sold separately.
