Bosch's New HD Camera Line Examined

Author: John Honovich, Published on Feb 05, 2011

In this note, we examine Bosch's new HD camera lineup. One of the last major vendors to release their own H.264 HD camera lineup, the initial entry consists of 6 offerings: 2 box cameras, 2 domes and 2 PTZs.

From a specification standpoint, perhaps the most interesting aspect is the HD PTZs which support 1080p and a maximum zoom of 20x.
