The 1080p outdoor dome cameras from Bosch are professional surveillance cameras that provide high-quality HD images for demanding security and surveillance network requirements. These robust domes are true day/night cameras offering excellent
performance day or night. There is a version with a built-in active infrared illuminator that provides high performance in extreme
low-light environments.

System overview :
Vandal resistant outdoor dome with varifocal lens Ideal for outdoor use, the IK10-rated design is suitable for installations where a vandal resistance is important. The camera is protected against water and dust to IP66 standards. The varifocal lens allows you to choose the coverage area to best suit your application. Mounting options are numerous, including surface, wall, and suspended-ceiling mounting. 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 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.

Functions Essential Video Analytics :
The built-in video analysis reinforces the Intelligence-at-the-Edge concept and now delivers even more powerful features. Essential Video Analytics is ideal for use in controlled environments with limited detection ranges. The system reliably detects, tracks, and analyzes objects, and alerts you when predefined alarms are
triggered. A smart set of alarm rules makes complex tasks easy and reduces false alarms to a minimum. Metadata is attached to your video to add sense and structure. This enables you to quickly retrieve the relevant images from hours of stored video. Metadata can also be used to deliver irrefutable forensic evidence or to optimize business processes based on people counting or crowd density information. Calibration is quick and easy – just enter the height of the camera. The internal gyro/accelerometer sensor provides the rest of the information to precisely calibrate the video analytics.

Intelligent streaming reduces bandwidth and storage requirements :
The low-noise image and the efficient H.265 compression technology provide clear images while reducing bandwidth and storage by up to 80% compared to standard H.264 cameras. With this new generation of cameras, an extra level of intelligence is
added with Intelligent Streaming. The camera provides the most usable image possible by cleverly optimizing the detail-to-bandwidth ratio. The smart encoder continuously scans the complete scene as well as regions of the scene and dynamically adjust compression based on relevant information like movement. Together with Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction, which actively analyzes the contents of a scene and reduces noise artifacts accordingly, bitrates are reduced by up to 80%. Because noise is reduced at the source during image capture, the lower bitrate
does not compromise image quality. This results in substantially lower storage costs and network strain and still retain a high image quality and smooth motion.

Area-based encoding :
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.
