NBN-50051 Series Description

The 1080p HD indoor camera is a ready-to-use, complete network video surveillance system inside a compact and stylish housing. This camera brings Bosch’s high-performance technology into the realm of homes, small office and retail businesses by offering a cost-effective solution for a broad range of applications.

NBN-50051 Series System overview

The elegant, compact box design is ideal for homes, offices, businesses or shops where camera size and appearance is important. The camera has a 1/2.7-inch CMOS HD sensor and is a true day/night camera offering excellent performance day or night.

NBN-50051 Series Functions

Content Based Imaging Technology

Content Based Imaging Technology (CBIT) is used to radically improve image quality in all lighting conditions and to identify areas for enhanced processing. The camera examines the scene using intelligent video analytics and provides feedback to retune the image processing. This provides better detail in the areas that matter and better all-round performance.

Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction reduces bandwidth and storage requirements

The camera uses Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction which actively analyzes the contents of a scene and reduces noise artefacts accordingly.

The low-noise image and the efficient H.264 compression technology provide clear images while reducing bandwidth and storage by up to 50% compared to other H.264 cameras. This results in reduced-bandwidth streams that still retain a high image quality and smooth motion. The camera provides the most usable image possible by cleverly optimizing the detail-to-bandwidth ratio.

The average typical optimized bandwidth in kbits/s for various image rates is shown in the table:


IPS 1080p 720p 480p
30 1600 1200 600
15 1274 955 478
12 1169 877 438
5 757 568 284
2 326 245 122

Multiple streams

The innovative multi-streaming feature delivers various H.264 streams together with an M‑JPEG stream. These streams facilitate bandwidth-efficient viewing and recording as well as integration with third-party video management systems.

An upright mode can be selected for the second stream. In this mode an image of 400 x 720 (9:16 aspect ratio) is cropped from the full sensor image. When the scene to be monitored is suitable to this mode, the bandwidth and storage requirements are reduced.

Simultaneous analogue and IP video outputs

A surge-protected analogue video output ensures that high resolution IP video streaming and an analogue video output are available simultaneously. This means, for example, that a confrontation monitor can easily be connected directly to the camera while still maintaining full IP functionality.

Regions of interest and E-PTZ

Regions of Interest (ROI) can be user defined. The remote E-PTZ (Electronic Pan, Tilt and Zoom) controls allow you to select specific areas of the parent image. These regions produce separate streams for remote viewing and recording. These streams, together with the main stream, allow the operator to separately monitor the most interesting part of a scene while still retaining situational awareness.

Built-in microphone, two-way audio and audio alarm

The camera has a built-in microphone to allow operators to listen in on the monitored area. Two-way audio allows the operator to communicate with visitors or intruders via an external audio line input and output. Audio detection can be used to generate an alarm if needed.

Tamper and motion detection

A wide range of configuration options is available for alarms signalling camera tampering. A built-in algorithm for detecting movement in the video can also be used for alarm signalling.

Edge recording

The SD card slot supports up to 2 TB of storage capacity. An SD card can be used for local alarm recording. Pre-alarm recording in RAM reduces recording bandwidth on the network, or — if SD card recording is used — extends the effective life of the storage medium.

Storage management

Recording management can be controlled by the Bosch Video Recording Manager (VRM) or the camera can use iSCSI targets directly without any recording software.

Cloud-based services

The camera supports time-based or alarm-based JPEG posting to four different accounts. These accounts can address FTP servers or cloud-based storage facilities (for example, Dropbox). Video clips or JPEG images can also be exported to these accounts.

Alarms can be set up to trigger an e-mail or SMS notification so you are always aware of abnormal events.

Easy installation

Power for the camera can be supplied via a Powerover-Ethernet compliant network cable connection. With this configuration, only a single cable connection is required to view, power, and control the camera. Using PoE makes installation easier and more cost effective, as cameras do not require a local power source.

The camera can also be supplied with power from +12 VDC power supplies. To increase system reliability, the camera can be simultaneously connected to both PoE and +12 VDC supplies. Additionally, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) can be used to ensure continuous operation, even during a power failure.

For trouble-free network cabling, the camera supports Auto-MDIX which allows the use of straight or crossover cables.

Simple set-up

The camera has a very intuitive user interface that allows fast and easy configuration. Six configurable user modes are provided with the best settings for a variety of applications:

Indoor – general day-to-night changes without sun highlights and street lighting
Outdoor – general day-to-night changes with sun highlights and street lighting
Motion – monitoring traffic or fast moving objects; motion artefacts are minimized
Lowlight – optimized for sufficient details at low light.
BLC – for people moving in front of a bright background
Vibrant – enhanced contrast, sharpness and saturation

True day/night switching

The camera incorporates mechanical filter technology for vivid daytime colour and exceptional night-time imaging while maintaining sharp focus under all lighting conditions.

Access security

Password protection with three levels and 802.1x authentication is supported. To secure Web browser access, use HTTPS with a SSL certificate stored in the camera. The video and audio communication channels can be independently AES encrypted with 128-bit keys by installing the optional encryption site license.

Complete viewing software

There are many ways to access the camera’s features:

using a web browser, with the Bosch Video Management System, with the free-of-charge Bosch Video Client, with the video security mobile app, or via third-party software.

Video security App

The Bosch video security mobile App has been developed to enable Anywhere access to HD surveillance images allowing you to view live images from any location. The App is designed to give you complete control of all your cameras, from panning and tilting to zoom and focus functions. It’s like taking your control room with you.

This App, together with the separately available Bosch transcoder, will allow you to fully utilize our dynamic transcoding features so you can play back images even over low-bandwidth connections.

System integration

The camera conforms to the ONVIF Profile S specification. This 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.
