  • DINION starlight and FLEXIDOME starlight cameras with stellar performance even in extreme low-light conditions
  • Content Based Imaging Technology improves image usability and reduces required bandwidth and storage cost
  • Images can be viewed from any location that has internet access


Munich - With the development of its next generation of mega pixel cameras, DINION starlight HD 720p and FLEXIDOME starlight HD 720p RD, Bosch Security Systems can now introduce cameras that are specifically designed for high performance in extreme low-light conditions. They represent a breakthrough in light sensitivity in cameras; showing color images where others can show only black and white and showing black and white where others show no image at all.

HD security breakthrough

With their high sensitivity in both color (0.017 lux) and monochrome modes (0.0057 lux), the HD cameras work with minimal ambient light, delivering clear images in a multitude of applications, even where poor lighting is the principle challenge. The 60 fps frame rate helps capture fast-moving objects in applications such as traffic and casinos.


Breakthrough imaging

The starlight cameras come with Content Based Imaging Technology (CBIT). This Bosch innovation intelligently combines information from the sensor, image pipe, encoder and intelligent video analysis (IVA) to dynamically optimize the image for every scene. Bosch CBIT-enabled cameras feature two special modes: Intelligent Auto Exposure (iAE), which ensures the optimal image of important objects and iDNR provides the most usable image possible by cleverly optimizing the detail-to-bandwidth ratio.

By using this intelligent noise reduction technology (iDNR), the image clarity is improved, and the storage requirements are reduced significantly. The 720p starlight HD camera requires up to 30% less bandwidth than other 720p and SD cameras.


Use everywhere, view from anywhere

The unique FLEXIDOME RD is designed for demanding, outdoor applications. The rugged cast-aluminum dome housing can withstand the equivalent of 55 kg (120 lbs) of force and the extended operating temperature range of the camera makes it ideal for any application - extreme temperatures and vandal-prone areas are only two examples. A choice of installation options includes flush, wall, and pipe mounting. 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.


By applying the Bosch Dynamic Transcoding Technology, HD quality images can be viewed from any location that has access to the internet, even if the available bandwidth is only 128 kBit/s. The video streams can be viewed from your iPad or browser, the free Bosch Viewing Client, or the Bosch Video Management System.


Easy migration to High Definition (HD)

Because they can deliver consistently reliable images in all lighting conditions, the 720p HD cameras are expected to replace SD cameras and as such, can be considered the new standard for professional video surveillance systems. “The introduction of these high-performance HD cameras at a similar price level as SD cameras underlines our commitment to constantly improve our range of security cameras, and accelerates the transition from analog to IP,” says Constant Rutten, Product Manager at Bosch Security Systems.


Certified interoperability

All DINION starlight and FLEXIDOME starlight cameras conform to the Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF), which guarantees interoperability between network video products regardless of the manufacturer.

The Bosch division Security Systems is a leading global supplier of security, safety, and communications products, solutions and services. Some 12,500 associates generated sales of 1.4 billion euros in fiscal 2011. Protecting lives, buildings and assets is our aim. The product portfolio includes video surveillance, intrusion detection, fire detection and voice evacuation systems as well as access control and management systems. Professional audio and conference systems for communication of voice, sound and music complete the range. Bosch Security Systems develops and manufactures in its own plants across the world.

The Bosch Group is a leading global supplier of technology and services. In 2013, its roughly 281,000 associates generated sales of 46.1 billion euros. (NB: Due to a change in accounting policies, the 2013 figures can only be compared to a limited extent with the 2012 figures). Its operations are divided into four business sectors: Automotive Technology, Industrial Technology, Consumer Goods, and Energy and Building Technology. The Bosch Group comprises Robert Bosch GmbH and its more than 360 subsidiaries and regional companies in some 50 countries. If its sales and service partners are included, then Bosch is represented in roughly 150 countries. This worldwide development, manufacturing, and sales network is the foundation for further growth.

In 2013, the Bosch Group invested some 4.5 billion euros in research and development and applied for some 5,000 patents. This is an average of 20 patents per day. The Bosch Group’s products and services are designed to fascinate, and to improve the quality of life by providing solutions which are both innovative and beneficial. In this way, the company offers technology worldwide that is “Invented for life.”

The company was set up in Stuttgart in 1886 by Robert Bosch (1861-1942) as “Workshop for Precision Mechanics and Electrical Engineering.” The special ownership structure of Robert Bosch GmbH guarantees the entrepreneurial freedom of the Bosch Group, making it possible for the company to plan over the long term and to undertake significant up-front investments in the safeguarding of its future. 92 percent of the share capital of Robert Bosch GmbH is held by Robert Bosch Stiftung GmbH, a charitable foundation. The majority of voting rights are held by Robert Bosch Industrietreuhand KG, an industrial trust. The entrepreneurial ownership functions are carried out by the trust.
