• Ultra high resolution 960H sensor
• High Dynamic Range to see bright and dark details simultaneously
• Detail enhancement
• Bilinx communication for remote set-up and control
• Easy to install

VBN-5085 Description

The DINION 5000 family combines high resolution with high dynamic range in a true day/night analogue camera. The high performance 960H 1/3-inch CCD sensor with a resolution of 720TVL, the high dynamic range engine, and the advanced image processing technology combine together to provide a detailed image with outstanding accuracy in colour reproduction even under harsh lighting conditions. True day/night performance ensures the highest image quality possible at any time, day or night. The camera is easy to install and ready to use, and offers the best solution for demanding scene conditions.

VBN-5085 System overview

The camera is supplied ready to operate – simply attach the lens, connect video and then power. Six distinct pre-programmed operational modes are stored in the camera. Recall the mode that suits your application for optimized performance. The lens wizard ensures accurate back-focusing for perfectly sharp pictures at all times. For especially challenging situations where fine tuning or special settings are required, the camera parameters can be individually set using the control buttons on the side of the camera and an Onscreen Display (OSD).

VBN-5085 Functions

Detail in extreme lighting

In harsh lighting, the difference between the brightest and the darkest parts of a scene can be extreme. To produce a clear picture in these conditions, the CCD sensor in the camera generates two images; one long exposure to resolve details in the scene’s darkest areas, and one short exposure to resolve details in the scene’s brightest areas. The advanced image processing technology in the camera combines these dual shutter images, mixing pixels from each exposure to produce the most detailed image possible. The superior wide dynamic range for all lighting conditions reveals details previously unseen.

Day/Night mode

The day/night mode provides enhanced night viewing by increasing the IR sensitivity. The IR filter can switch from colour to monochrome automatically by either sensing the illumination level or via the alarm input. The filter can be switched manually via the alarm input, through the camera menu or via the Bilinx coaxial control interface. An internal through-the-lens IR detector enhances the monochrome mode stability, as it prevents reverting to the colour mode when IR illumination is dominant. IR contrast is also measured and used to handle reflected IR light in outdoor scenes.

Ease of installation

The lens wizard helps focus the lens at the maximum opening to ensure proper back-focus is maintained throughout the 24-hour cycle. No special tools or filters are required.

Six independent, pre-programmed operating modes support typical applications, but are fully programmable for individual situations. Switching between modes is easy via Bilinx or the external alarm input.

Several other features are available that make installation easy:


Power and alarm cable connectors which can be removed even when the camera is mounted.
A built-in test pattern generator produces signals to test and fault-find cables.
A multi-language On-Screen Display (OSD).
A high efficiency power supply improves maximum operating temperature.

Cable compensation is used to avoid the need for amplifiers in long distance coaxial connections up to 1000 m (3000 ft). It can prevent the image quality degradation caused by signal losses from long cable lengths.

Bilinx technology

Bilinx is a bidirectional communication capability embedded in the video signal of this camera. Installers can check status, change camera settings and even update firmware from virtually anywhere along the video cable. Bilinx reduces service and installation time, provides for more accurate set-up and adjustment, and improves overall performance. In addition, Bilinx uses the standard video cable to transmit alarm and status messages, providing superior performance without additional installation steps.

Ideal picture performance

There are many settings available to help fine-tune the picture performance to match your installation environment. These include:

Smart BLC – automatically and dynamically compensates for strong backlight
Peak White Invert – reduces glare from highlight areas
Contrast and sharpness – enhance details in bright or misty scenes
SensUp – sensitivity is dramatically enhanced by a factor of 10
Default shutter – improves the motion performance in auto exposure mode
Dynamic noise reduction – dynamically reduces noise in the picture

Privacy masking

Fifteen different privacy zones allow specific parts of a scene to be blocked. Pre-program any part of the scene to be masked.

Video Motion Detection

The built-in video motion detector allows you to select four programmable areas with sensitivity thresholds. When motion is detected, alarms can be displayed in the video signal, the output relay can be closed or an alarm message can be transmitted via Bilinx.

Typical applications:
• Entrance foyer or lobby with glare
• Outdoor perimeters
– low light
– IR light
• Traffic monitoring
– highway
– traffic intersections
– emergency response coordination
• Tunnels
• Car parks (outdoor)
• Restricted access locations such as:
– prisons
– ports / freight terminals
– military facilities
– border control and homeland
• Casino and gambling centres
