The Bosch AUTODOME IP dynamic 7000 HD VG5-7230-EPC4 30x Pendant Indoor/Outdoor PTZ Dome Camera is an easy-to-install high-speed PTZ dome camera. This pendant camera delivers 1080p 25/30 video, day and night functionality, and 30x optical zoom. The Full HD camera provides complete network-based control of all dome functionality including pan/tilt/zoom operation, presets, tours, and alarms as well as web-based configuration of all dome settings. It also provides direct network video streaming using H.264 compression and bandwidth throttling to efficiently manage bandwidth and storage requirements while delivering optimum image quality.

The camera enables capturing color images in illumination as low as 0.026 lux and in B&W down to 0.0041 lux. In low-light conditions, the camera automatically switches from color to monochrome by removing the IR filter to boost sensitivity, while maintaining image quality. When operated in HDR mode, the camera makes multiple, simultaneous exposures of the same scene to capture details in both bright and dark parts of the scene.

Dynamic Range
  • Low-light sensitivity for day and night operations
  • Suitable for scenes with simultaneous bright and dark areas
  • Automatically switches from color to monochrome by removing the IR filter to boost sensitivity in low light conditions
  • 1080p HD PTZ camera with 30x zoom lens for capturing fine details in scenes with limited or non-uniform illumination
  • HDR mode makes multiple, simultaneous exposures of the same scene to capture details in both bright and dark parts of the scene
Sodium Vapor Lamp White Balance
  • Can be installed in areas with a sodium vapor lamp
  • Automatically compensates for the light from a sodium vapor lamp to restore objects to their original color
  • Eliminates the yellow tint in images captured under sodium vapor lamp light
Five Pre-Programmed User Modes
  • Features five pre-programmed, configurable user modes for use in different applications
  • Ensures easy and user friendly on-site programming
  • Outdoor mode for general day-to-night changes with sun highlights and street lighting
  • Indoor mode for indoor applications where lighting is constant and not changing
  • Low light mode for sufficient details at low light
  • Motion mode minimizes motion artifacts while monitoring traffic or fast moving objects
  • Vibrant mode enables enhanced contrast color reproduction and sharpness
Image Stabilization
  • Eliminates movement caused by unstable camera mounts
  • Image stabilization algorithm allows the camera to detect continuous vibration
  • Dynamically corrects the shaky video in both the vertical and horizontal axis for image clarity and stable field of view on the monitor
Privacy Masking
  • Features 24 individual, easy-to-configure privacy masks, with up to 8 displayed in the same scene
  • As the camera is zoomed, each mask changes size smoothly and quickly, ensuring that the covered object cannot be seen in most cases
Alarm Responses
  • Rules-based logic to determine alarms response
  • Inputs and outputs can be combined with pre-defined or user-specified commands to perform advanced camera functions
PTZ Drive and Mechanism
  • Supports 256 pre-positions and two styles of guard tours (Preset and Record/Playback)
  • Users can configure the preset standard tour with as many as 256 sequential pre-positions, with a configurable dwell time between pre-positions
  • Provides support for two recorded tours, which are recorded macros of an operator’s movements, including pan, tilt, and zoom activities, and can be played back with the click of a button
  • Pan and tilt preset repeatability are accurate to within +/- 0.1° to ensure that the correct scene is captured every time
  • Delivers variable pan/tilt speeds from a crawl speed of 0.1 to 400° per second
  • Capable of pan speeds of 400° degrees per second and tilt speeds of 300° per second between pre-positions
  • Provides a tilt angle 18° above the horizon, and a pan range of up to 360° continuous rotation
Content-Based Imaging Technology (C-BIT)
  • Used to improve image quality in all lighting conditions and to identify areas for enhanced processing
  • Examines the scene using intelligent video analytics and provides feedback to retune the image processing
  • Intelligent, automatic anti-fog technology allows you to view video clearly through a foggy scene or can improve contrast in dark areas of a scene
IDNR Reduces Bandwidth and Storage Requirements
  • IDNR (Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction) actively analyzes the contents of a scene and reduces noise artifacts accordingly
  • Low-noise image and the efficient H.264 compression technology combine to provide clear images while reducing bandwidth and storage requirements
  • Reduced-bandwidth streams that retain a high image quality and smooth motion
  • Provides the most usable image possible by cleverly optimizing the detail-to-bandwidth ratio
  • Enhanced system flexibility with dual recording options (iSCSI, SD card)
  • Allows visibility to be improved significantly when viewing foggy or other low-contrast scenes
  • Users can configure the mode to be active continuously, or to activate automatically when the video analytics in the camera detect fog and add light to the video image (and then deactivate when the fog clears or the scene changes)
Intelligence Video Analysis (IVA)
  • Detects and analyzes moving objects while suppressing unwanted alarms from spurious sources in the image
  • IVA allows the camera to detect multiple object behaviors including idle and removed objects, loitering, multiple line crossing, and trajectories
  • IVA supports BEV (Bird’s-Eye-View) people counter and assisted self-calibration
  • Configurable detection filters improve reliability and reduce operator work load
  • IVA can be used to follow an individual or an object continuously
  • Tracking feature is based on robust flow detection algorithms which can reliably track moving objects even under challenging scenes
  • Tracking and detection reliability can be enhanced further with virtual masking for scenes with a lot of background noise
  • Auto mode actively analyzes the video to detect any moving object
  • Click mode allows users to click an object moving in the live video image to enable the camera to track the movement of the selected object
  • IVA-triggered mode continuously analyzes the scene for IVA alarms or IVA rule violations allows the camera to track moving objects of interest without getting distracted by other moving objects in the scene
Virtual Masking
  • Gives users the flexibility to mask parts of the scene which should not be considered for flow analysis to trigger Intelligent Tracking
  • Allows users to mask background motion in the scene such as moving trees, pulsating lights, and busy roads, from IVA/tracking without blocking it from the video
Common Product Platform (CPP4)
  • H.264 encoder (CPP4) embedded for HD streaming video and network capabilities
  • Supports simultaneous streaming of individually configurable HD streams, and allows a choice of HD resolution in combination of SD resolutions
  • Fully configurable quad streaming with individually configurable streams
Recording and Storage Management
  • A memory card (SD, SDHC, or SDXC) can be used for local alarm recording or for scheduled local recording to improve the overall recording reliability
  • Recording management can be controlled by the Bosch Video Recording Manager (VRM), or the camera can use iSCSI targets directly without any recording software
ONVIF Conformant
  • Conforms to the ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) specification which enables interoperability between network video products
  • ONVIF Profile S specification allows easy integration with the conformant devices and VMS
  • Enables exchange of live video, audio, metadata, and control information, and ensure that they are automatically discovered and connected to network applications such as video management systems
