Bosch introduces the next generation MIC Series Ruggedized PTZ cameras survive the elements


- Robust design exceeds the most demanding performance requirements
- Easy integration into existing Bosch video surveillance installations
- Day/night and infrared models for a range of applications

Bosch Security Systems introduces the latest version of its MIC Series ruggedized, high-speed pan-tilt-zoom cameras. The cameras now feature Bosch's standard AutoDome controller interface to make it easier to integrate the MIC Series into systems that already use Bosch surveillance products. The new controller also gives end users greater precision in their command of camera functions and optics.

MIC Series cameras capture high-resolution images in the harshest environments, including critical infrastructure, transportation and city center applications. The vandal and corrosion-resistant design includes an IP 68/NEMA 6P-rated aluminum casing with a long-life silicone wiper and reversible rain shield. The MIC Series 550 Day/Night and Infrared models provide uncompromised performance in the most challenging surveillance conditions.

The MIC Series cameras deliver 550 TVL resolution with 36x or 28x optical zoom for sharp images even at great distances. Their wide dynamic range easily adapts to changing light conditions, showing maximum detail in scenes with both bright and dark areas. And, a Sodium Vapor White Balance mode restores images of objects to their original color when affected by street or tunnel lamps.

The MIC Series 550 Infrared model features twin integrated, long-life LED infrared lamps that ensure clear illumination of the camera view up to 60 meters (197 feet) away in total darkness. The lamps are attached directly to the camera head to provide illumination exactly where it is needed. All MIC Series cameras can be mounted upright, inverted or canted to 45 degrees, without the need for specialist tools and without compromising the IP rating. This capability simplifies project planning and provides increased installation flexibility.
