Bosch DINION IP starlight 8000 MP Camera

NBN-80052-BA Key Features

• Remarkable low-light performance (0.0121 lx)
• 5MP (3K) high detail at fast speeds (30 fps)
• Low network strain and storage costs
• Outstanding wide dynamic range (97+16 dB)

NBN-80052-BA Description

The DINION IP starlight 8000 MP offers a new standard in round-the-clock video surveillance. Regardless of lighting conditions, time-of-day or object movement, the camera delivers relevant IP video 24/7. Capturing images at 5 megapixel resolution (3K) even under extreme low-light conditions, it gives amazing images in fine detail. The camera produces multimegapixel full-color video in near darkness, and delivers detailed monochrome images where other cameras show no image at all.

NBN-80052-BA System overview

Advanced image processing techniques take the DINION IP starlight 8000 MP to the next level. Intelligent Video Analysis tracks and focuses on relevant situations and adds sense and structure to stored video, allowing you to quickly retrieve the correct data.

Intelligent Auto Exposure gives superb front and back light compensation, providing the perfect picture every time.

Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction saves bitrate at the source and only uses bandwidth when needed. This results in up to 50% less bitrate which significantly reduces storage costs and network strain without compromising on video quality.

NBN-80052-BA Functions

Exceptional low-light performance

The latest sensor technology, combined with the sophisticated noise suppression, results in a sensitivity of 0.0121 lx at full 5MP resolution in color and even 0.00825 lx at 1080p resolution. The low-light performance is so good that the camera continues to provide excellent color performance even with a minimum of ambient light.

Measured dynamic range

The dynamic range of the camera is outstanding and is obvious in real-world performance comparisons — 97 dB wide dynamic range for 5MP mode (plus an extra 16 dB when combined with Intelligent Auto Exposure).

The actual dynamic range of the camera is measured using Opto-Electronic Conversion Function (OECF) analysis with a standardized test chart based on ISO standards. This method provides more realistic and verifiable results in comparison with the theoretical approximations sometimes used.

Intelligent Video Analysis

After only 20 minutes you can miss 90% of the activity on a screen. Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA ) assists by alerting you when predefined alarms are triggered. By smartly combining up to 8 IVA rules, complex tasks are made easy and false alarms are reduced to a minimum. IVA also adds sense and structure to your video by adding metadata. 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.

Intelligent Auto Exposure

Fluctuations in backlight and front light can ruin your images. To achieve the perfect picture in every situation, Intelligent Auto Exposure automatically adjusts the exposure of the camera. It offers superb front light compensation and incredible backlight compensation by automatically adapting to changing light conditions.

Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction

Quiet scenes with little or no movement require a lower bitrate. By intelligently distinguishing between noise and relevant information, Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction reduces bitrate by up to 50%. Because noise is reduced at the source during image capture, the lower bitrate does not compromise on video quality.

Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction adjusts spatial and temporal filtering (3DNR) based on intelligent analysis of the scene content. Motion compensated temporal filtering (MCTF) reduces motion blur normally associated with standard temporal filtering. This maintains image quality of fast moving objects while still optimizing bitrate.

With Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction, our focus is to significantly reduce storage costs, and lessen network strain by only using bandwidth when needed.

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.

Bitrate optimized profile

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

fps 5MP (4:3) 5MP (16:9) 1080p
30 4950 4500 1600
25 4685 4259 1514
15 3941 3583 1274
10 3351 3046 1083
5 2342 2129 757
2 1009 917 326

Selectable resolution and aspect ratio The camera has three basic application variants that can be chosen at start-up to provide the best possible performance for typical applications:

• 5MP (16:9)
• 5.5MP (4:3)
• 1080p

The 5MP variants can be used in applications where the highest resolution possible is required. The 1080p30 (16:9) variant is for applications that require extra sensitivity and dynamic range. Each of these variants selects the best possible tuning parameters for the application so that you get the best performance possible from your camera.

Scene modes

The camera has a very intuitive user interface that allows fast and easy configuration. Nine configurable modes are provided with the best settings for a variety of applications. Different scene modes can be selected for day or night situations.

• Indoor – general day-to-night changes in an indoor environment without sun highlights or street lighting effects.
• Outdoor – general day-to-night changes in an outdoor environment with sun highlights and street lighting effects.
• Night-optimized – optimized for details in low light environments.
• Low bit rate – reduces bandwidth requirements.
• Intelligent AE – optimized for scenes with fluctuating front and back light caused by sunlight or other illuminated objects in the scene.
• Vibrant – enhanced contrast, sharpness and saturation.
• Sports and gaming – high-speed capture, and improved color rendition and sharpness.
• Traffic – for monitoring traffic movement on roads or parking lots. It can also be used in industrial applications where fast moving objects are to be monitored. Motion artifacts are minimized.
• Retail – improved color rendition and sharpness with reduced bandwidth requirements.

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, plus easy integration with third-party video management systems.

Depending on the resolution and frame rate selected for the first stream, the second stream provides a copy of the first stream or a lower resolution stream.

The third stream uses the I-frames of the first stream for recording; the fourth stream shows a JPEG image at a maximum of 10 Mbit/s.

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.

Intelligent Tracking continuously analyses the scene for moving objects. If a moving object is detected, the camera automatically adjusts its settings, including field of view, to optimally capture details of the object of interest.

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 costeffective, 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.

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.

Edge recording

Insert a memory card into the card slot to store up to 2 TB of local alarm recording. Pre-alarm recording in RAM reduces recording bandwidth on the network, and extends the effective life of the memory card.

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.

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.

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. Visit the Bosch Integration Partner Program (IPP) website ( for more information.
