Bosch AUTODOME 600 Series Analog PTZ Camera28x

  • Choice of 550 TVL 36x or 28x day/night cameras with 12x digital zoom and wide dynamic range
  • Progressive scan provides smooth and clear images when viewing details in a moving image
  • Sodium Vapor White Balance mode restores objects to their original color
  • AutoTrack II automated motion tracking
  • Advanced privacy masking

The AUTODOME delivers state-of-the-art technology and features that far exceed other PTZ cameras. The cameras achieve a high horizontal resolution of 550 TV lines enabling the reproduction of clear and detailed images.
Wide Dynamic Range The AUTODOME features Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology that allows for the capture of clear images from both bright and dark areas in the same frame. WDR ensures that bright areas are not saturated and that dark areas are not too dark. Progressive scan The AUTODOME camera is ideally suited for moving imaging applications. The progressive scan technology incorporated into the camera provides smooth and clear images when viewing images from a moving camera.
Sodium vapor lamp white balance The AUTODOME is an exceptional performer when shooting under a sodium vapor lamp (a street lamp or tunnel lamp, for example). Images under these conditions may have a yellowish tint, which may make identification difficult. In the Sodium Vapor White Balance mode, the AUTODOME automatically compensates for the light from a sodium vapor lamp to restore objects to their original color.
