The 1080p 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. The builtin infrared LEDs provides quality night time monitoring with 30 m (98 ft) viewing distance in darkness.
Outdoor bullet camera with Automatic 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 standards. The 2.8 to 12 mm AVF (Automatic Varifocal) lens allows you to choose the coverage area remotely. The automatic zoom/focus lens wizard makes it easy for an installer to accurately zoom and focus the camera for both day and night operation. The wizard is activated from the PC or from the on-board camera push button making it easy to choose the workflow that suits best
The AVF (Automatic Varifocal) feature means that the zoom can be changed without opening the camera. The automatic motorized zoom/focus adjustment with 1:1 pixel mapping ensures the camera is always accurately focused.
Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction reduces bandwidth and storage requirements The camera uses Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction 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 50% 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.
Bitrate optimized profile
The average typical optimized bitrate in kbits/s for various frame rates is shown in the table:
Multiple streams 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. The third stream uses the I-frames of the first stream for recording; the fourth stream shows a JPEG image at a maximum of 10 Mbit/s. 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. Storage management Recording management can be controlled by the Bosch Video Recording Manager (Video Recording Manager) or the camera can use iSCSI targets directly without any recording software. Edge recording The MicroSD card slot supports up to 2 TB of storage capacity. A microSD card can be used for local alarm recording. Pre-alarm recording in RAM reduces recording bandwidth on the network, or — if microSD card recording is used — extends the effective life of the storage medium. Cloud-based services 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. Easy installation 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 costeffective, as cameras do not require a local power source. The camera can also be supplied with power from 24 VAC or +12 VDC SELV class 2 power supplies. For trouble-free network cabling, the camera supports Auto-MDIX which allows the use of straight or crossover cables. 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. Hybrid mode An analog video output enables the camera to operate in hybrid mode. This mode provides simultaneous high resolution HD video streaming and an analog video output via a BNC connector. The hybrid functionality offers an easy migration path from legacy CCTV to a modern IP-based system.
