MIC Series 550 Infrared Camera Description

The MIC Series 550 Infrared camera combines cutting edge technology with the latest production techniques to provide a class-leading feature set in an economical package. The MIC Series 550 range takes high quality surveillance to new levels of excellence.

As a best-fit camera for virtually any security application, it can be installed in the harshest of environments. Thanks to its IP68-rated aluminium casing, the MIC Series 550 Infrared camera functions perfectly in the most demanding conditions. This tough and vandal-resistant casing provides protection from the elements and physical attack. An integrated, long life silicone wiper, and a reversible rain shield ensure high quality images regardless of the installed environment.

The brushless-motor technology offers ultra-reliable operation with full 360º continuous rotation pan and 186º tilt control for exceptional viewing capability. Small increment pan speeds from just 0.2º per second to 120º per second gives the user precise control. This speed control is especially important when used with video analytic systems, particularly for tracking subjects when fully zoomed in.

The MIC Series 550 Infrared camera incorporates Bosch’s standard controller interface supporting familiar AutoDome on-screen menus. This enhancement makes it simple to integrate and use the camera within systems that already use Bosch AutoDome cameras and systems.

When powered by a MIC IP IR Power Supply, the MIC IR camera becomes an IP-enabled device with extra features such as Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA), and the ability to record video on a network-attached RAID iSCSI storage device or locally on a user-supplied SD or SDHC card (32 GB maximum). The optional “hybrid” operation provides video and control of the MIC camera over both analogue (Bilinx over coax) and IP connections simultaneously.

 

MIC Series 550 Infrared Camera System overview

Twin integrated IR illuminators

Two 850 nm, long-life, LED Infrared (IR) illuminators attached directly to the camera head illuminate the camera view and allows clear classification of humans up to 100 m (328 ft) in total darkness, ensuring high quality images regardless of the lighting conditions. Detection of moving objects at up to 150 m (492 ft) is possible.

Robust design rated to an industry-leading IP68 Subjected and certified to rigorous dust and immersion tests (IP68), MIC Series cameras are perfectly suited for installation in even the most unforgiving environments. Reliable ‘O’ ring seals completely protect the internal components from the external environment, meaning that there is no need to pressurize the camera. To guarantee the seal, the factory subjects each MIC camera to a 100% leak test before shipping. In addition, the cameras’ aluminium construction is protected from corrosion by two different processes: first, the cameras receive a coating of Alodine 5200, a chromate-free conversion coating of aluminium that is used in the aerospace and defence industries where a protective layer is required to improve corrosion resistance. Second, they receive a robust, powder coat layer of paint.

Various mounting options, including on-site canting

The MIC Series 550 Infrared camera features twistlock on-site canting functionality. This allows the camera to be installed upright, inverted, or canted (at a 45º angle) to achieve the perfect field of view. No matter the installation position, the camera will operate faultlessly.

Integrated wiper

Regardless of the weather, the MIC Series 550 Infrared camera is able to capture the highest possible quality image all year long, thanks to its integrated, long-life silicone wiper.

Multi-protocol operation

Compatible with a multitude of protocols, including Bosch “Biphase (OSRD)” and “Bilinx,” Pelco “P” and “D,” and Forward Vision protocols, the MIC Series 550 Infrared camera integrates seamlessly with existing security systems.

Applications:

• General CCTV
• Town centres
• ANPR systems
• Vandalism prone areas
• Extreme environments
• Rapid deployment
• High security
• Prestigious developments
• Broadcast
• Architectural

 

MIC Series 550 Infrared Camera Functions

High-performance PTZ day/night cameras
Image control and quality are integral aspects of any PTZ camera, and the MIC Series 550 Infrared camera delivers. The camera is available with a choice of 28X and the industry-leading 36X optical zoom lens, and offers a full 12X digital zoom. Both camera options provide 550 TVL of horizontal resolution for outstanding clarity and image detail. The cameras also incorporate technology that dramatically improves the dynamic range by 128 times. Also known as Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), it results in clear image reproduction in extreme high-contrast environments. The AutoScaling (proportional zoom) and AutoPivot (automatically rotates and flips the camera) features ensure optimal control.

Day/night capabilities and outstanding sensitivity make the MIC Series 550 Infrared cameras exceptional performers in all lighting conditions. In low light, these cameras automatically switch from colour to monochrome by removing the IR filter to boost the infrared illumination sensitivity, while maintaining superior image quality. For operation in the darkest conditions, the SensUp control feature automatically reduces the shutter speed to as little as one second. This increases sensitivity by more than 50 times. In addition to low light applications, the camera is also an exceptional performer when shooting under a sodium vapour lamp (for example, a street lamp or tunnel lamp). Images under these conditions may have a yellowish tint, which may make identification difficult. In the Extended ATW White Balance mode, the MIC Series 550 Infrared camera automatically compensates for the light from a sodium vapour lamp to restore objects to their original colour.

With super-quick, 120°/66° per-second pan/tilt speeds, the MIC Series 550 Infrared camera outperforms other domes in its class. The camera supports 99 pre-positions and two styles of Guard Tours: Preset and Record/Playback. The preset tour has capability for up to 99 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 combined 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.

Superior privacy masking

The MIC Series 550 Infrared camera allows for a total of 24 individual privacy masks, with up to eight displayed in the same scene. Unlike conventional privacy masks, these can each be programmed with three, four, or even five corners to cover more complex shapes. Each mask changes size and shape smoothly and quickly – ensuring that the covered object cannot be seen. You also have a choice of colours: black, white, and blurred. Blurred comes in handy when privacy is an issue, but determining the presence of motion is still required.

Image Stabilization
As PTZ cameras continue to increase their optical zoom capabilities, image stabilization becomes critical to eliminate movement caused by unstable camera mounts. A mere quarter-inch of movement of the camera mount can shift the field of view by more than 6 m (20 feet) when the camera is zoomed to a high value. This can render images unusable. Image stabilization algorithms included with the MIC Series 550 Infrared camera reduces camera shake in both the vertical and horizontal axis, resulting in exceptional image clarity (pixel displacement up to +/- 10% for frequencies up to 10 Hz). Bosch’s unique image stabilization solution does not reduce camera sensitivity, unlike competitive systems.

Ease of installation and servicing

Bosch’s innovative software, the Configuration Tool for Imaging Devices (CTFID), allows technicians or operators to control the PTZ, change camera settings, and even update firmware from remote locations without need for additional wiring. The MIC Series 550 Infrared camera has advanced built-in diagnostics to simplify service and minimize downtime. Using the On Screen Display (OSD), a technician can quickly and easily check critical parameters (such as internal temperature) to verify that the dome is functioning within acceptable operating limits.
