Bosch unveils AUTODOME 7000 family with Intelligent Tracking technology


* Accurately track objects even in scenes with challenging light and weather conditions
* Proactively alert operators to potential risks with Intelligent Video Analysis
* Deliver flexibility in system design with advanced streaming and recording options
* Simple and easy onsite installation

Munich – Bosch Security Systems introduces the AUTODOME 7000 family of pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras with intelligent features that are a major asset to security surveillance. AUTODOME 7000 outperforms other moving cameras to provide customers with a powerful, automated monitoring system that ensures security risks are not missed.

Built-in intelligence
Bosch’s embedded Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA) software automatically processes video signals and alerts operators to security risks. A single AUTODOME PTZ camera can analyze up to 10 different scenes for loitering, line crossing and other criteria. Customizable to address the specific concerns of each customer, IVA enables earlier threat detection and improved overall security.

Bosch’s unique Intelligent Tracking technology uses advanced flow detection algorithms to monitor scenes for motion and to automatically track objects. Customers can define conditions that will instantly activate tracking-such as a vehicle moving through an area in a specific direction. Now, operators can also trigger tracking by clicking on a moving target within live video to prompt the camera to keep it in the scene. The camera dynamically re-tunes zoom settings to capture the most useful, highly-detailed images of objects of interest as they move through the camera’s field of view.

AUTODOME 7000 family sets a new benchmark for intelligent tracking algorithms, as it resumes following a target after it passes behind a privacy mask or if it is temporarily concealed by a stationary object — even when swaying trees or other background noise is present. AUTODOME continuously tracks the target when it reappears or if motion is detected along the same trajectory-ensuring activities are always captured.

High performance
AUTODOME 7000 brings imaging to the next level with improved sharpness, more accurate color reproduction, and more detailed low-light images. The standard definition IP camera offers 28x or 36x zoom, and the HD camera delivers 1080p resolution, 30 images per second (IPS) and 20x zoom. The HD camera also supports high-speed 720p resolution at 60 IPS for capturing fine details of fast-moving objects in traffic and city surveillance, gaming centers, toll plazas, gas stations and similar applications.

Designed using Bosch’s latest firmware release CPP4, the camera supports quad-streaming to perform live monitoring and recording using up to four independently- configurable streams. While customers can record and monitor in HD resolution, the camera can also deliver reduced resolutions for bandwidth-friendly remote viewing. The new firmware provides a common software platform for many Bosch IP camera models, making it easier to install and maintain Bosch systems.

The cameras also support edge recording in combination with central storage for dependable performance. With up to two terabytes of storage via SDXC or 32 gigabytes with SDHC, the cards can be used for short-term or local alarm recording.

Designed for ease
AUTODOME 7000 is simple to use and install. It comes with five pre-configured settings for capturing optimal image quality in the most common applications and 256 preset positions for viewing critical monitoring areas at the touch of a button. Pre-terminated, color-coded wiring and a quick-connect system between the camera and mount make AUTODOMES faster and simpler to install than other PTZ domes. And, a fiber optic kit includes a unique media converter module installed directly into the power supply box.

Video management system support and integration
Bosch IP standard- and high-definition cameras, encoders and analytics work seamlessly with a wide range of security software and recording solutions from Bosch and other video management system providers. This is backed by ONVIF conformance and the Integration Partner Program, which gives developers immediate access to software development tools to easily integrate Bosch products with third-party systems.

Dependable operation
AUTODOME 7000 family includes indoor and outdoor dome cameras with an extended operating temperature range of -40 to +55 degrees Celsius (-40 to +131 degrees Fahrenheit). Their tamper-resistant aluminum housing is rated to IP66 and NEMA4X for uncompromised functionality even in most dusty or wet environments—ensuring years of reliable performance. In addition, AUTODOME’s power supply design supports simultaneous use of 24VAC and High Power over Ethernet (HPoE) for continuous coverage. If one power source fails, the other takes over seamlessly without going through a reboot cycle.

The new cameras will be available in July 2013. They will replace the AUTODOME 800 HD and AUTODOME 700 IP cameras and add an option for an in-ceiling HD dome camera to the line.
