The AUTODOME IP 5000i 2MP Outdoor Pendant Dome Camera from Bosch is a compact, indoor PTZ dome camera with a high-resolution 1080p sensor and 30x optical zoom lens that allows you to monitor wide scenes. It comes with 3 pre-tuned scene modes to match various lighting conditions found in varied environments. Furthermore, the camera is capable of quad streaming to deliver independent, configurable streams for live viewing, recording, or remote monitoring. The camera's design and pendant mounting allows unobtrusive surveillance of large halls, reception areas, or waiting areas.

H.265 Video Coding

The camera is designed on H.264 and H.265/HEVC encoding platforms.

Intelligent Streaming

Only relevant information in a scene, like motion, or objects found with the analytics, need to be encoded. The camera is capable of quad streaming which allows the camera to deliver independent, configurable streams for live viewing, recording, or remote monitoring over networks with constrained bandwidth.

Recording and Storage Management

Recording management can be controlled by the Bosch Video Recording Manager application, or the camera can use local storage and iSCSI targets directly without any recording software. A memory card (SD, SDHC, or SDXC) up to 2TB can be used for recording or for Automatic Network Replenishment (ANR) to improve overall recording reliability. Pre-alarm recording in RAM reduces bandwidth consumption on the network and extends the effective life of the memory card.

Video Analytics

Advanced tasks like multiple line crossing, loitering, idle/removed object detection, crowd density estimation, occupancy and people counting are available for live alarming and forensic search. Object filters based on size, speed, direction, aspect ratio, and color can be defined. A simplified calibration mode reduces installation time significantly, because you only need to enter the installation height once for each camera, independent of pre-positions. After the camera is calibrated, the analytics engine can automatically classify objects as upright person, car, bike, or truck.

Privacy Masking

The camera allows for a total of 24 individual privacy masks, with up to eight displayed in the same scene. These can be programmed with four corners each.

PTZ Drive and Mechanism

The camera supports 256 pre-positions and two styles of Guard Tours: Pre-position and Record/Playback. The pre-position tour has up to 256 pre-positions with a configurable dwell time between pre-positions and can be customized as to the order and the frequency that each preset position 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 your 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 ±0.1° to ensure that the correct scene is captured every time. 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 0.1 to 120° per second. It provides a pan range of up to 360° continuous rotation.

Alarm Responses

The camera supports advanced alarm control that uses rules-based logic to determine how to manage alarms. In its most basic form, a rule could define which input(s) should activate which output(s). In a more complex form, inputs and outputs can be combined with pre-defined or user-specified commands to perform advanced camera functions.

System Integration and ONVIF Conformance

The camera conforms to the Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) Profile S and Profile G specifications. For H.265 configuration the camera also supports Media Service 2 which is part of the future ONVIF Profile T.
