The black MIC IP fusion 9000i 2MP Outdoor Dual Thermal VGA/Visible Network PTZ Camera from Bosch consists of thermal and visible camera cores for capturing both types of video, helping you to detect potential security threats in virtually all conditions. The thermal imager features an FPA (Focal Plane Array), uncooled vanadium oxide microbolometer and 50mm athermal fixed lens for capturing videos at a maximum resolution of 640 x 480. The visible imager features a 1/2.8" Exmor R CMOS sensor and 4.3-129mm varifocal lens for capturing videos at a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080.

Enclosed in an IP66- and IK10-rated housing, the camera can be used in both indoor and outdoor environments. The camera features a silicone wiper to remove moisture from both the glass and germanium windows. In addition, both windows incorporate embedded defrosters that minimize buildup of snow and ice to ensure clear images are captured in extreme cold and moist conditions. The wiper can also be integrated with third-party washer systems for regular cleaning and maintenance. The camera can be powered using a standard 24 VAC power source and/or via network-compliant 95W high PoE (switch available separately).

Thermal Imager

The thermal imager incorporates an uncooled vanadium oxide microbolometer and a 50mm athermal lens. The imager offers a maximum resolution of 640 x 480 at 9 Hz frame rate.

Visible Imager

The visible imager has a 1/2.8" Exmor R CMOS sensor, which captures Full HD 1080p videos and features starlight technology, improved color rendering, and increased low-light sensitivity. Additionally, the imager is equipped with a 30x optical, 12x digital zoom lens. High dynamic range ensures clear image reproduction in high-contrast scenes.

Ruggedized Design

The camera is weather-sealed and complies with Type 6P and IP68 standards when attached to a MIC-DCA or a MIC-WMB. This level of protection eliminates any risk of dust or water ingress, making the camera a suitable choice for use in environments with rain, dust, snow, flying debris, and other challenges. The camera can be used in temperatures from -40 to 149°F. The all-metal body has been engineered to withstand IK10-level impacts, and continuous low-frequency vibrations.

Intelligent Video Analytics

The camera includes Intelligent Video Analytics for monitoring both visible and thermal image streams. It can detect, track, and analyze moving objects while suppressing unwanted alarms from spurious sources in the image, even in harsh weather conditions. 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. Setup time is minimized because only the installation height of the camera must be entered to calibrate the analytics. After the camera is calibrated, the analytics engine can automatically classify objects as an upright person, a car, a bike, or a truck.

Intelligent Tracking

The Intelligent Tracking feature is designed to provide smoother camera motion for comfortable viewing and to reliably track objects under challenging conditions.

Recording and Storage Management

The Bosch Video Recording Manager application can control recording management for the camera. Alternately, the camera can use its embedded local storage and iSCSI targets directly without any recording software. The camera's embedded local storage (internal EMMC-based memory) can be used for recording "at the edge" or for Automatic Network Replenishment (ANR) to improve the overall recording reliability. During full streaming conditions comprising of both visible and thermal image streams, metadata and audio up to four hours of local storage time is possible. Furthermore, pre-alarm recording is available to capture details of an incident before the alarm actually occurs.

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. Compliance with these standards ensure 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.
