MIC-7502-Z30 Description

The MIC IP starlight 7000i camera is an advanced PTZ surveillance platform for mission-critical applications. With starlight imaging technology and excellent lowlight sensitivity, the MIC IP starlight 7000i camera is the perfect solution for robust and high-quality imaging needs.

The camera’s true advantage is its rugged design combined with Intelligent Video Analytics developed specifically for the most demanding environments. The camera is well-suited for extreme environments and adverse weather conditions such as high winds, rain, fog, ice, and snow. The camera operates at extreme temperatures ranging from -40 °C to +65 °C (-40 °F to +149 °F). Even in extreme conditions and challenging illumination scenarios, the camera provides the highest-quality video images and relevant data interpreted directly at the source. H.265 compression technology, Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction and dynamic Encoder Regions contribute to bit rate saving.

MIC-7502-Z30 Functions

Exceptional low-light performance

The latest sensor technology combined with the sophisticated noise suppression results in an exceptional sensitivity in color. The low-light performance is so good that the camera continues to provide excellent color performance even with a minimum of ambient light.

High dynamic range

The dynamic range of the camera is outstanding and is obvious in real-world performance comparisons. In extended dynamic range mode, the camera uses an electronic shutter to capture four images with different exposure time and reproduce a high-contrast frame. The result is that you can view details in both the bright areas (highlights) and the dark areas (shadows) of a scene at the same time. You can easily distinguish objects and features (for example, faces) with bright backlight.

Ruggedized design for extreme applications

The camera is designed to last in surveillance applications that are beyond the mechanical capabilities of conventional positioning systems. The complete metal body has been engineered to withstand high-impact or continuous low-frequency vibration. The camera models comply to IK10 rating for impact resistance and to the IEC 60068 standards applicable to vibration and shock.

The closed-loop PTZ positioning system allows the camera to maintain its position under continuous vibration or after an extreme shock event, even without homing or pre-position calibration. The camera benefits from Bosch domain knowledge in material engineering and coatings. As a result, the superior metallurgy and the finish of the camera provide unprecedented protection against corrosion. The camera has been tested for 2000 hours of salt spray per the ASTM B117 standard.

Robust design rated to an industry-leading IP68, Type 6P, IK10

Subjected and certified to rigorous dust and immersion tests (IP68, Type 6P) and impact test (IK10), MIC cameras are perfectly suited for installation in even the most unforgiving environments. The cameras’ aluminum housing receives a corrosion protection surface treatment, along with robust, powder coat paint. 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 unit integrity, the factory tests each MIC camera for leaks before shipping.

Pan and tilt drive and mechanism

The pan and tilt mechanism is a ruggedized, directdrive system. The brushless motors directly control the pan and tilt movement using a finely-tuned gear train designed to minimize backlash and support continuous operation without significant wear and tear.

With a full 360º continuous rotation pan and 290º tilt control (on upright models without illuminators) and super-quick pan (120°/second) and tilt (90°/second) for exceptional viewing capability, the camera outperforms other cameras in its class.

Dual-mode Illumination

The field-installable MIC illuminator accessory (sold separately) consists of covert IR LEDs, visible IR LEDs, and White light LEDs. IR LEDs enable Detection of objects 450 m (1476 ft) away.

The following table identifies the application for each type of LED.


Application Type of illuminator
Close-range covert illumination 940 nm IR LEDs
Long-range detection 850 nm IR LEDs
Identification and deterrent White light LEDs


The MIC camera can steer the IR beam dynamically to match the illumination intensity with the camera’s field of view according to the zoom level.

Beam intensity is controlled automatically or manually, depending on user preference. Decreasing intensity reduces overexposure.

The patented, integrated Constant Light technology delivers a consistent level of illumination performance throughout the life of the product, even in fluctuating temperatures.

White light mode allows operators to capture full scene details in color or use the light as a deterrent effect.

H.265 high-efficiency video encoding

The camera is designed on the most efficient and powerful H.264 and H.265/HEVC encoding platform. The camera is capable of delivering high-quality and high-resolution video with very low network load. With a doubling of encoding efficiency, H.265 is the new compression standard of choice for IP video surveillance systems.

Intelligent streaming

Smart encoding capabilities, together with Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction technology and analytics, make the bandwidth consumption drop to extremely low levels. Only relevant information in the 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 via constrained bandwidths.

Intelligent Video Analytics on the edge

The camera includes the latest release of Intelligent Video Analytics application for use on prepositions.

Designed for mission-critical applications, the video analytics can reliably 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.

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.

Video analytics while camera is moving Outside of pre-positions and even while the PTZ camera is moving, whether on guard tours or manually, the Intelligent Video Analytics application can now detect and alarm when objects are in alarm fields. These alarm fields are defined once across all PTZ camera views. Any part of those alarm fields that is currently within the cameras view becomes active. Thus, guard tours sweeping across the monitored areas in order to provide an intruder less time to slip by can now automatically alarm on those intruders as well.

Intelligent Tracking

When the Intelligent Video Analytics application in the camera detects objects or individuals, the camera can automatically activate the Intelligent Tracking feature, which controls the pan/tilt/zoom actions of the camera to track objects and keep them in view. The newest generation of the Intelligent Tracking feature ensures smoother camera motion for more comfortable viewing and more reliably tracking objects even under challenging scenes.

Areas with potentially interfering background motion (moving trees, pulsating lights, and busy roads) can be masked out.

The camera supports 2 Intelligent Tracking modes:

• Auto mode: In this mode, the camera follows any
object that has triggered an alarm in the Intelligent Video Analytics application. This mode is most useful for scenarios where the alarm cases can be clearly defined, for example, when no motion is expected at all.

• Click mode: In this mode, users can click on any object detected by the Intelligent Video Analytics application to enable the camera to track the movement of the selected object. This mode is most useful for scenarios where normal scene activity is expected.

Image Stabilization

As PTZ cameras continue to increase their optical zoom capabilities, image stabilization becomes critical to eliminate movement caused by unstable camera mounts. Minor movement of the camera mount can shift the field of view by a large distance when the camera is zoomed to a high value. This can render images unusable. The camera incorporates an Image Stabilization algorithm that allows the camera to detect continuous vibration. If it detects vibration, the camera dynamically corrects the shaky video in both the vertical and horizontal axis, resulting in exceptional image clarity and a stable field of view on the monitor.

Data security

Special measures are necessary to ensure the highest level of security for device access and data transport. On initial setup, the camera is only accessible over secure channels. You must set a service-level password in order to access camera functions.

Web browser and viewing client access can be protected using HTTPS or other secure protocols that support state-of-the-art TLS 1.2 protocol with updated cipher suites including AES encryption with 256 bit keys. No software can be installed in the camera, and only authenticated firmware can be uploaded. A threelevel password protection with security recommendations allows users to customize device access. Network and device access can be protected using 802.1x network authentication with EAP/TLS protocol. Superior protection from malicious attacks is guaranteed by the Embedded Login Firewall, on-board Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) support.

The advanced certificate handling offers:

• Self-signed unique certificates automatically created when required
• Client and server certificates for authentication • Client certificates for proof of authenticity • Certificates with encrypted private keys 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 guarantees 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. Visit the Bosch Integration Partner Program (IPP) website ( for more information.

Ease of installation

The camera has been designed for quick and easy installation, a key feature from Bosch IP video security products.

The camera supports mounting in upright, inverted, or canted orientation. The field-selectable canting option allows the upper section of the camera to be tilted down at a 45° angle. This is very useful for installations that require a view of the scene directly under the camera.

Power options

The camera can be powered by a network compliant to High Power-over-Ethernet using a Bosch model of High PoE Midspan (sold separately) or other device known to be compatible. With this configuration, only a single (Cat5e/Cat6e) cable connection is required to view, to power, and to control the camera. For maximum reliability, the camera can operate with a redundant power system of a High PoE Midspan and a separate 24 VAC power source connected simultaneously. If either the High PoE or 24 VAC power source fails, the camera seamlessly transitions to the remaining power source.

The 60 W midspan (NPD-6001A) can supply power to models without an illuminator accessory. The 95 W midspan (NPD-9501A) can supply power to all models of MIC IP starlight 7000i, including models with the illuminator accessory.

The camera can also accept a standard 24 VAC power source if a High PoE network interface will not be used. User-supplied wiring must be in compliance with electrical codes (Class 2 power levels). Refer to the table in the Installation/configuration notes section for more information.

Camera Diagnostics

The camera has several built-in sensors / advanced diagnostics that display warnings on the camera’s OSD about the health of the camera. The diagnostics log records the events such as:

• Low voltage - a drop in incoming power below the level where the camera becomes non-functional
• High temperature - the internal temperature exceeds specifications
• Low temperature - the internal temperature exceeds minimum levels
• High humidity - the internal humidity exceeds 70%
• High vibration - the acceptable level of acceleration forces was exceeded
• Total hours of camera operation
• Illuminator aging history

Certain events also appear on the camera’s OSD.
These diagnostic records are available for the
installation or service technician to review.
