Bosch AUTODOME IP starlight 7000 HD
Bosch AUTODOME IP starlight 7000 HD

Delivering the highest quality of relevant IP video images in all lighting conditions, Bosch Security Systems brings its proven starlight and dynamic technology to the AUTODOME IP 7000 HD family of high-speed pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) domes. Whether capturing video in harsh sunlight or extreme low light, two new models of cameras provide round-the-clock protection regardless of lighting conditions. They ensure maximum image details are captured for traffic and transportation, industrial, government, city surveillance and many other applications faced with difficult lighting and moving objects indoors or out. The new AUTODOME IP starlight 7000 HD cameras deliver HD video images in extreme low light situations and capture moving objects in 720p HD resolution at up to 60 frames per second. The latest sensor technology combined with sophisticated noise suppression results in a light sensitivity of 0.052 lux in colour mode and even 0.0103 lux in monochrome mode. The AUTODOME IP starlight 7000 HD 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, the camera still delivers detailed monochrome images. Its ability to capture fast moving objects and excellent performance in extreme low light situations make the AUTODOME IP starlight 7000 HD ideal for securing parking lots, street corners and similar applications. The AUTODOME IP dynamic 7000 HD camera features wide dynamic range and intelligent backlight compensation technology to ensure that moving objects or those of interest are enhanced and can be easily identified in scenes with simultaneously bright and dark areas, which typically challenge standard cameras. To further improve the quality and relevancy of IP video images, both cameras also feature intelligent de-fog technology to dynamically adjust camera contrast settings to deliver the best quality in scenes affected by fog, smog, mist or other low contrast scenes. Intelligent Video Analysis Another differentiating feature of the AUTODOME IP 7000 HD family is built-in Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA). It helps to focus on relevant situations by alerting you when needed, or to automatically track objects of interest. IVA also adds sense and structure to video data by adding metadata already in the camera. This allows quick retrieval of 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. Never lose track of objects of interest In video surveillance, moving objects are usually the most significant objects of interest. Intelligent Tracking (iTracking) automatically tracks moving objects based on predefined alarm rules or a simple click. By intelligently distinguishing between single and multiple reference points, iTracking will provide uninterrupted tracking. Optimal capture of the object of interest is assured by dynamically adjusting the field of view. In addition, all AUTODOME IP 7000 HD models feature virtual masking technology. Virtual masks hide unwanted motion, such as swaying trees or pulsating lights, to improve the accuracy and performance of the cameras’ intelligent features without hiding areas from the video seen by the operator. 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. Combined with the Video Security app, users are allowed access to camera controls, live video streams and HD images via a mobile device anytime and from anywhere. It also enables you to instantly retrieve the correct video data from hours of recorded material. The new AUTODOME IP 7000 HD models are fully supported by Dynamic Transcoding in combination with either one of the Bosch DIVAR IP recording solutions or a Bosch VIDEOJET transcoder. Lower storage costs and network strain To reduce storage costs and network strain the new AUTODOME IP starlight 7000 HD and AUTODOME IP dynamic 7000 HD cameras feature intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction (iDNR). The benefit of this intelligent 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 artifacts. The degree of noise reduction is adjusted accordingly so that important objects are captured and image noise artifacts suppressed, optimizing the camera’s bitrate. Thus, iDNR saves up to 50 percent 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, ensuring that video data is continuously available in Video Recording Manager (VRM) systems without breaks. Dependable operation and easy installation The AUTODOME IP 7000 HD family is available in an in-ceiling housing for areas where discrete installation is important or in a pendant version for indoor and outdoor applications. In-ceiling models feature IP54 and plenum ratings for added dust protection and the ability to mount the camera in areas used for air circulation for heating and air conditioning systems. Pendant models feature a tamper-resistant aluminium housing that is rated to IP66 and NEMA4X for uncompromised functionality even in wet environments – ensuring years of reliable performance. In addition, AUTODOME’s dual power supply design assures continuous coverage even if one power source fails. With pre-terminated, color-coded wiring and a quick-connect system between the camera and mount, AUTODOME IP 7000 HD models are faster and simpler to install than other PTZ domes. Support for High Power over Ethernet also provides power directly to the camera without additional cabling. 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.
