Attendees of ISC West in Las Vegas will see firsthand the innovation built into Bosch's IP products: this embedded technology enables our products to make independent decisions before sharing information with an operator or other devices on the network.
Attendees can experience the advanced technology in Bosch CCTV cameras by taking part in an IP camera challenge at the company's booth. Participants will be tasked with "stealing" an object from a staged scene under video surveillance by Bosch cameras featuring embedded Intelligent Video Analysis capabilities. When the cameras recognize the item has been removed from the scene, they will generate an alarm to notify the person monitoring the area.
By embedding Intelligent Video Analysis capabilities in IP cameras and encoders, Bosch enables customers to push video content analysis (VCA) to the edge. This system design eliminates the need for costly servers to run analytics software, equipment that is required for many competitors' products. As a result, Bosch's solution is more cost-effective and easier to manage for the end user.
Emphasizing the breadth of the company's portfolio, Bosch will also demonstrate IP innovation in intrusion and fire detection as well as in integrated security and building automation systems at the annual security industry conference and exposition. On display in the booth, Bosch Conettix Information Transport Solutions allow virtually any security or fire panel to communicate over IP networks, and Bosch's Building Integration System consolidates the control of disparate IP-based security and facility management functions into one platform to simplify the end user's experience and automate tasks.
"Our investment in research and development is unsurpassed in the security industry, and this venue gives us the opportunity to demonstrate the technologies resulting from these efforts," said Jeremy Hockham, president of Sales - Americas, Bosch Security Systems, Inc. "By delivering products and systems to market that are more advanced than those available from competitors, we're helping our customers differentiate themselves in this crowded industry. Working with Bosch, security dealers and integrators can better design the innovative and high-quality solutions that will help them win new business and gain opportunities to upgrade existing installations."
