Autodome IP 5000 IR Description

Keep your security in focus with the many features of AUTODOME IP 5000 IR cameras with integrated IR technology from Bosch. The camera is carefully tuned to deliver detailed 720p25/30 or 1080p25/30 HD images during daylight and full details under low-light or no-light conditions with the integrated IR illuminator. The intelligent IR illuminator automatically adjusts the IR intensity according to zoom and field of view to ensure that the scene is illuminated uniformly. The AUTODOME IP family makes it easier for you to stay in control of your security even when you’re on the go. When used in combination with the Video Security App from Bosch, the camera supports Dynamic Transcoding technology, which allows you to stream high-resolution H.264 video, to pan/tilt/zoom the camera, and to search recorded clips remotely through mobile devices such as smart phones or tablets, all on a low-bandwidth network connection (up to 50% less than other H.264 PTZ cameras). The camera provides complete network-based control of all functionality including pan/tilt/zoom operation, presets, tours, alarms, and web-based configuration of all camera settings.

Autodome IP 5000 IR Functions

See in the dark

The camera operates with smart, variable IR illumination technology from Bosch, producing outstanding video in low-light scenes. The camera offers unique flexibility that offers configuration of IR on a per-zone basis. This ensures a single dominant illumination source in a specific scene, avoiding focus instability due to mixed lighting conditions.

Superior imaging performance

Designed using Bosch’s digital imaging platform, AUTODOME IP 5000 IR cameras deliver highresolution, zoomed-in views with large coverage areas. Three (3) pre-programmed user modes

The camera comes with three (3) pre-tuned scene modes to match various lighting conditions found in indoor scenes. Users can complete the configuration without going through multiple imaging settings.


•  Indoor: general day-to-night changes without sun highlights and street lighting
•  Outdoor: general day-to-night changes with sun highlights and street lighting
•  Vibrant: enhanced contrast, sharpness and saturation

Sodium vapor lamp white balance

The camera is an exceptional performer when capturing video under a sodium vapor lamp (a street lamp or tunnel lamp, for example). Uncorrected images under these conditions have a yellowish tint, which can make identification difficult. In the Sodium Vapor White Balance mode, the camera automatically compensates for the light from a sodium vapor lamp to restore objects to their original color.

Superior privacy masking

For installations in public places where privacy of private property is of high concern, the camera provides 24 individual, easy-to-configure privacy masks, with up to 8 displayed in the same scene. As the camera is zoomed, each mask changes size smoothly and quickly, ensuring that the covered object cannot be seen in most cases.

PTZ drive and mechanism

The camera supports 256 pre-positions and two styles of Guard Tours: Preset and Record/Playback. The preset tour has capability for up to 64 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 (2) recorded tours, which have a total 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

Pan and tilt preset repeatability are accurate to within ±0.2 degrees to ensure that the correct scene is captured every time. The camera delivers maximum pan speed of 300 degrees per second and maximum tilt speed of 160° degrees per second. The camera is capable of manual speeds (pan and tilt) of 1 to 120 degrees per second. The camera provides a pan range of up to 360 degrees continuous rotation. The camera’s tilt angle is from 0° to ±90°. 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 artifacts 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.

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. User can configure encoding regions for every configured preset (scene), to increase or decrease the encoding quality for selectable areas of the video image. These regions give better control of the bit rate. Important parts of the scene (identified as objects in the GUI) are encoded at high resolution and therefore have an enhanced encoding quality. Less important parts (such as the sky and trees in the background, all identified as backgrounds in the GUI) are encoded at lower quality and therefore have a decreased encoding quality.

Intelligent Defog

Users can configure the mode to be active continuously, or to activate automatically when the video analytics in the camera detect fog and add light to the video image (and then deactivate when the fog clears or the scene changes).

Advanced streaming

The camera offers advanced streaming capabilities so that you can configure the camera to take advantage of the latest network technology.

The camera is designed on an efficient and powerful H. 264 encoding platform capable of delivering highquality HD video with very low network load. The new intelligent encoding capabilities drop the bandwidth consumption to extremely low levels if the camera detects no motion in the scene.

The camera is capable of quad streaming which allows the camera to be configured to deliver independent, configurable streams for live viewing, recording, or remote monitoring on over bandwidth-constrained networks.

Recording and storage management

A memory card (a maximum of 32 GB microSDHC / 2 TB microSDXC) can be used for local alarm recording or for scheduled local recording to improve the overall recording reliability. Recording management can be controlled by the Bosch Video Recording Manager (VRM), or the camera can use iSCSI targets directly without any recording software.

Alarm handling and Motion Detection

A wide range of configuration options is available for alarms signaling the camera. A built-in algorithm for detecting movement on presets can also be used for alarm signaling, or the camera can interface to an external alarm source using the built-in alarm I/O ports. In addition, a user can also schedule virtual alarms. Any of the available external alarm, motion alarm or scheduled virtual alarms can then be used to trigger a relay output or to force the camera to do certain tasks (for example, to start a guard tour or to go to a preset location).


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 App, or via third-party software.

Bosch Video Security app

The AUTODOME IP cameras fully support Dynamic Transcoding technology from Bosch, which – in combination with the Video Security App from Bosch– provides 24/7 remote access to camera controls, live video streams, recordings and HD images from anywhere, regardless of available bandwidth. Dynamic Transcoding automatically adjusts the bit rate to the available bandwidth to ensure smooth video streaming. When the video is paused at an incident, a full HD still image is shown instantly. To gain all benefits of Dynamic Transcoding, simply expand the IP video surveillance system with either a DIVAR IP recording solution or a VIDEOJET XTC from Bosch.

System integration

The camera conforms to the ONVIF Profile S specifications. This ensures 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 and servicing

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

Bosch designed the camera with the knowledge that field cables and mounts are installed before the camera is mounted. The new installation concept allows a single person to connect the cables directly to the camera without re-routing cables. The camera is easily secured to the mount with a single screw. The three-step installation process can save up to 5 minutes per camera installation compared to any conventional PTZ dome.

The camera is rated to provide IP66 protection and offer an operating temperature range down to -40 °C (-40 °F). The housing comes fully assembled with a sunshield and ready for wall or pipe applications with the proper mounting hardware (sold separately).

Dual power options

All models can be powered by a IEEE 802.3at PoE+ switch or a 24 VAC power supply. When powered using PoE+ (IEEE 802.3at class 4) configuration, only a single cable connection is required to power and to control the camera while also viewing images from the camera. For additional system reliability, users also have the option to connect the 24 VAC power supply to the camera while using PoE+.

Easy upgrade

Remotely upgrade the camera whenever new firmware becomes available. This ensures up-to-date products, thus protecting investment with little effort.

Unsurpassed reliability

As with all Bosch products, the camera is designed using the industry’s best design process and is subjected to the most stringent testing standards such as HALT (highly accelerated life testing), which pushes the limits of products to ensure reliability throughout their lifetime.
