AutoDome modular camera

Product Profile

Interchangeable modules

The entire AutoDome system is based on five interchangeable modules: the CPU, camera, housing, communications, and power supply. Simply swap one of AutoDome's interchangeable modules and quickly upgrade from analogue to IP, colour to day/night, or add motion detection, image stabilisation, and AutoTrack. Never before have you had the ability to adapt a security system to your changing needs this quickly or inexpensively.

Adds real intelligence to your video surveillance applications

Equipped with AutoTrack II the latest version of Bosch's award-winning motion tracking software, built-in image stabilization, motion detection, and a sophisticated alarm handling "rules" engine, the AutoDome 500i Series incorporates advanced, intelligent video features unmatched by any other camera system.

Diverse range of communication options

The AutoDome Series supports a variety of standard and optional video and data transmission methods, including Bilinx (over coax and UTP), fibre, and even TCP/ IP over Ethernet. Remote control, configuration, and firmware updates can also be performed over these cables, offering you unparalleled control of your cameras.

Hybrid analogue / IP communications

The optional IP Communications Module has hybrid functionality to protect your current analogue technology investment while providing a clear and stable migration path to fully digital, IP-based solutions. This allows you to move to IP video at your own pace - all at once or one camera at a time. And since all AutoDome modules are completely interchangeable, there is no need to replace expensive components (e.g., cameras) or labour-intensive components (e.g., mounts and housings).
