Built-in IR illuminator with 25 m (82 ft) viewing distance
720p resolution for sharp images
Fully configurable quad streaming
Regions of interest and E-PTZ
The 720p infrared bullet from Bosch is a professional surveillance camera that provides high quality HD images for demanding security and surveillance network requirements.
This robust bullet camera is a true day/night camera offering excellent performance day or night.
iDNR reduces bandwidth and storage requirements
The camera uses intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction (iDNR) which actively analyzes the contents of a scene and reduces noise artifacts accordingly. The low-noise image and the efficient H.264 compression technology provide clear images while reducing bandwidth and storage by up to 30% compared to other H.264 cameras. This results in reduced-bandwidth streams that still retain a high image quality and smooth motion. The camera provides the most usable image possible by cleverly optimizing the detail-to-bandwidth ratio.
Area-based encoding is another feature which reduces bandwidth. Compression parameters for up to eight user-definable regions can be set. This allows uninteresting regions to be highly compressed, leaving more bandwidth for important parts of the scene. The average typical optimized bandwidth in kbits/s for various image rates is shown in the table:
Built-in IR illuminator
The built-in infrared LEDs provides quality night time monitoring with 25 m (82 ft) viewing distance in darkness.
Outdoor bullet camera with varifocal lens
The robust aluminum housing provides high installation flexibility. The camera resists both water and dust ingress in tough environments and is rated to IP66 (NEMA Type 4X) standards. The 3 to 10 mm varifocal lens allows you to choose the coverage area to best suit your application.
The innovative multi-streaming feature delivers various H.264 streams together with an M‑JPEG stream. These streams facilitate bandwidth-efficient viewing and recording as well as integration with third-party video management systems.
Regions of interest and E-PTZ
Regions of Interest (ROI) can be user defined. The remote E-PTZ (Electronic Pan, Tilt and Zoom) controls allow you to select specific areas of the parent image. These regions produce separate streams for remote viewing and recording. These streams, together with the main stream, allow the operator to separately monitor the most interesting part of a scene while still retaining situational awareness.
Two-way audio and audio alarm
Two-way audio allows the operator to communicate with visitors or intruders via an external audio line input and output. Audio detection can be used to generate an alarm if needed.
Tamper and motion detection
A wide range of configuration options is available for alarms signaling camera tampering. A built-in algorithm for detecting movement in the video can also be used for alarm signaling.
The camera supports time-based or alarm-based JPEG posting to four different accounts. These accounts can address FTP servers or cloud-based storage facilities (for example, Dropbox). Video clips or JPEG images can also be exported to these accounts. Alarms can be set up to trigger an e-mail or SMS notification so you are always aware of abnormal events.
Power for the camera can be supplied via a Powerover-Ethernet compliant network cable connection. With this configuration, only a single cable connection is required to view, power, and control the camera. Using PoE makes installation easier and more cost effective, as cameras do not require a local power source.
The camera can also be supplied with power from +12 VDC power supplies. To increase system reliability, the camera can be simultaneously connected to both PoE and +12 VDC supplies.
Additionally, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) can be used, which will allow continuous operation, even during a power failure. For trouble free network cabling, the cameras support Auto-MDIX.
True day/night switching
The camera incorporates mechanical filter technology for vivid daytime color and exceptional night-time imaging while maintaining sharp focus under all lighting conditions.
Password protection with three levels and 802.1x authentication is supported. To secure Web browser access, use HTTPS with a SSL certificate stored in the camera. The video and audio communication channels can be independently AES encrypted with 128-bit keys by installing the optional encryption site license.
Complete viewing software
There are many ways to access the camera’s features: using a web browser, with the Bosch Video Management System, with the Bosch Recording System, with the free-of-charge Bosch Video Client, or with the video security mobile App.
The Bosch Video Client PC surveillance software offers a user-friendly interface to support easy installation and configuration. It also provides easy live viewing of multiple cameras, playback, forensic search and export.
Video security App
The Bosch video security mobile App has been developed to enable Anywhere access to HD surveillance images allowing you to view live images from any location. The App is designed to give you complete control of all your cameras, from panning and tilting to zoom and focus functions. It’s like taking your control room with you.
This App, together with the separately available Bosch transcoder, will allow you to fully utilize our dynamic transcoding features so you can play back images even over low-bandwidth connections.
The camera conforms to the ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) Profile S specification. This guarantees interoperability between network video products regardless of manufacturer. For trouble-free network cabling, the camera supports Auto-MDIX which allows the use of straight or cross-over cables. Third-party integrators can easily access the internal feature set of the camera for integration into large projects.
