Camera test: Bosch NDN-498
- Read Whitepaper
In cooperation with Seetec, GIT SECURITY tests current and new video cameras under standardised conditions in the test laboratory of the SeeTec Hardware Competence Center. The Hardware Competence Center was set up because the data and performance specifications of network cameras as stated by manufacturers are often measured under different conditions and are not always reliable in practice. The results provided a sound basis for planning IP video projects and help to avoid unpleasant surprises. For the testing procedure, video sequences are produced under defined lighting scenarios and are then evaluated. Here, movements in the picture as well as night and backlight situations are taken into consideration.
GIT SECURITY and Seetec did test the IP camera Bosch NDN-498. Let us have a look at the results:
The Bosch NDN-498 FlexiDome2X day/night IP camera is a CCD full image camera in a compact, very robust and vandalism-protected housing. The cameras have a 1/3 inch CCD chip and a 20-bit DSP with 2X dynamic that help to provide a wider dynamic range and sharper, more detailed images with exceptional color reproduction. FlexiDome2X IP cameras have integrated video movement recognition and can be fitted with an additional processor for video image analysis.
The vandalism-protected PoE dome camera with day/night switchover impressed during the test with a good and balanced image quality, even under weak lighting. As well as two H.264 image streams, the camera can also simultaneously deliver an MJPEG stream. It is therefore possible to use different streams for live viewing, archiving and video analysis.
