The white NEZ-4212-PPCW4 AUTODOME IP 4000 HD 12x 2MP Camera from Bosch is a compact, indoor PTZ dome camera with 2MP HD sensor and a 12x optical zoom that allows operators to monitor wide scenes without losing any details. The NEZ-4212-PPCW4 AUTODOME IP camera, in combination with the Video Security App from Bosch, makes it easier for you to stay in control of your security even when you're on the go. With the camera's built-in Dynamic Transcoding technology, you can easily stream high-resolution H.264 video, pan/tilt/zoom the camera, and search recorded clips remotely through mobile devices such as smart phones or tablets, all on a low-bandwidth network connection. The camera provides complete network-based control of all functionality including pan/tilt/zoom operation, presets, tours, alarms, and web-based configuration of all camera settings. The camera's aesthetic design and flexible mounting options allow unobtrusive surveillance of large halls, reception areas, or waiting areas that would otherwise require multiple cameras for effective surveillance.
Three Pre-Programmed User Modes
The camera comes with three pre-tuned scene modes to match various lighting conditions found in indoor scenes. Users can complete the configuration without going through multiple imaging settings.
PTZ Drive and Mechanism
The camera supports 256 pre-positions and two styles of guard tours. The preset tour has capability for up to 64 pre-positions with a configurable dwell time between pre-positions and can be customized as to the order and frequency each preset is visited. The camera also provides support for two recorded tours, which have a total duration of 15 minutes of movements. These are recorded macros of an operator's movements, including pan, tilt, and zoom activities, and can be played back in a continuous manner. Pan and tilt preset repeatability are accurate to within ±0.2°. The camera delivers maximum pan speed of 160° per second and maximum tilt speed of 120° per second. The camera is capable of manual speeds (pan and tilt) of 1 to 120° per second. The camera provides a pan range of up to 360° continuous rotation and tilt angle from 0 to ±90°.
Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction for 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 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.
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. User can configure encoding regions for every configured preset (scene), to increase or decrease the encoding quality for selectable areas of the video image. These regions give better control of the bit rate. Important parts of the scene (identified as objects in the GUI) are encoded at high resolution and therefore have an enhanced encoding quality. Less important parts are encoded at lower quality and therefore have a decreased encoding quality.
The camera is designed on H. 264 encoding platform capable of delivering HD video with very low network load. The intelligent encoding capabilities drop the bandwidth consumption to extremely low levels if the camera detects no motion in the scene. The camera is capable of quad streaming which allows the camera to be configured to deliver independent, configurable streams for live viewing, recording, or remote monitoring over bandwidth-constrained networks.
Recording and Storage Management
A memory card (maximum 32GB microSDHC or 2TB microSDXC) 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.
Alarm Handling and Motion Detection
A wide range of configuration options is available for alarms signaling the camera. A built-in algorithm for detecting movement on presets can also be used for alarm signaling, or the camera can interface to an external alarm source using the built-in alarm I/O ports. In addition, a user can also schedule virtual alarms. Any of the available external alarm, motion alarm or scheduled virtual alarms can then be used to trigger a relay output or to force the camera to do certain tasks (for example, to start a guard tour or to go to a preset location).
Password protection with three levels and 802.1x authentication is supported. 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 free-of-charge Bosch Video Client, with the Video Security App, or via third-party software.
Bosch Video Security App
NEZ-4212-PPCW4 AUTODOME IP camera supports Dynamic Transcoding technology from Bosch, which provides 24/7 remote access to camera controls, live video streams, recordings and HD images from anywhere, regardless of available bandwidth. Dynamic Transcoding automatically adjusts the bit rate to the available bandwidth to ensure smooth video streaming. When the video is paused at an incident, a full HD still image is shown instantly.
The camera conforms to the ONVIF Profile S specifications. This ensures interoperability between network video products regardless of manufacturer. Third-party integrators can easily access the internal feature set of the camera for integration into large projects.
Dual Power Options
NEZ-4212-PPCW4 can be powered by a IEEE 802.3at PoE+ switch or a 24 VAC power supply. For additional system reliability, users also have the option to connect the 24 VAC power supply to the camera while using PoE+.
Remotely upgrade the camera whenever new firmware becomes available. This ensures up-to-date products.
