Regardless of time-of-day, object of interest movement or extreme low light situations, the new 5 megapixel DINION IP starlight 8000 MP camera delivers relevant IP video images 24/7. With this video surveillance camera, Bosch Security Systems sets a new quality benchmark in round-the-clock video surveillance. Due to its outstanding and comprehensive technical specifications this is the ultimate 24/7 camera securing critical infrastructures, parking lots, city surveillance projects and many other applications with challenging lighting conditions.
Becoming the ultimate 24/7 camera
The DINION IP starlight 8000 MP delivers five megapixel details even in extreme low light situations and captures moving objects in 5 megapixel resolution at up to 30 frames per second. The latest sensor technology combined with the sophisticated noise suppression results in a light sensitivity of 0.0121 lux at full five megapixel resolutions in colour and even 0.00825 lux at 1080p resolution. The DINION IP starlight 8000 MP produces full colour images in the dark beyond the point where other cameras have turned to monochrome images. Where others show no image at all, it still delivers detailed monochrome images. Possible disturbances caused by fluctuating front or backlight are eliminated by Bosch' unique built-in intelligence. The intelligent Auto Exposure (iAE) technology dynamically adjusts the exposure of the camera to automatically adapt to changing light conditions providing perfect exposure of objects of interest every time. The iAE technology also contributes to the outstanding dynamic range of the camera which boasts a massive 103+16 dB for the 1080p mode.
Intelligent Video Analysis
Another differentiating feature of the DINION IP starlight 8000 MP is built-in Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA). It helps to focus on relevant situations by alerting you when needed, or automatically track objects of interest. IVA also adds sense and structure to video data by adding metadata. This allows the quick retrieval of the relevant images from hours of stored video. Metadata can also be used to deliver irrefutable forensic evidence or to optimise business processes based on, for example, people counting or crowd density information. By smartly using the camera's ability to simultaneously combine 8 of the 15 available IVA rules, complex tasks are made easy and false alarms are reduced to a minimum.
24/7 remote access and camera control
Limited bandwidth makes it impossible to stream HD video on mobile devices whereas Dynamic Transcoding delivers both smooth live video streaming and instant access to HD (1080p) images when needed, regardless of available bandwidth. It also allows access to camera controls, live video streams and HD images via a mobile device anytime from anywhere. Dynamic Transcoding also enables you to instantly retrieve the correct video data from hours of recorded material. The DINION IP starlight 8000 MP is supported by Dynamic Transcoding in 1080p mode in combination with either one of the Bosch DIVAR IP recording solutions or a Bosch VIDEOJET.
Lower storage costs and network strain
To reduce storage costs and network strain the camera features intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction (iDNR). The power of this technology is that it leads to bandwidth only being used when needed. When there is little or no movement in the scene, less bitrate is required. Therefore, iDNR actively analyses the scene distinguishing between relevant information such as moving objects and image noise artefacts. The degree of noise reduction is adjusted accordingly so that important objects are captured and image noise artefacts suppressed, optimising the camera's bitrate. Thus, iDNR saves up to 50% on bitrate and hence storage and network strain without compromising video quality. Local storage on the camera further enhances network performance by compensating for short network outages, so ensuring that video data is continuously available in VRM systems without breaks.
Bosch IP standard-definition and high-definition cameras, encoders and analytics work seamlessly with a wide range of security software and recording solutions from Bosch and many other industry providers. This is backed by ONVIF conformance (Open Network Video Interface Forum) and the Integration Partner Program (IPP), which gives developers immediate access to software development tools to easily integrate Bosch products with third-party systems.
