NFN-70122 Series Description


System overview

Advantages of panoramic surveillance

Panoramic surveillance offers full 180° or 360° coverage of the designated area. Because our panoramic cameras cover the full area, they provide complete situational awareness and are ideally suited to following movement in one continuous sweep.

These panoramic cameras will considerably augment the functionality of any high-end surveillance system especially when coupled with Intelligent Video Analytics, for example, for people counting or complex rule-based alarm triggering.

Intelligent Video Analytics continuously monitors the full image circle so you still receive alarms even if you are zoomed-in on a particular region.


12MP sensor at 30 fps

The ultra high 12MP sensor resolution together with the exceptionally high frame rate of 30 fps makes this camera unique in the field of panoramic image capture. Motion is smoother and the E‑PTZ feature provides more detailed images.

The effective resolution for the 180° version is 8MP and for the 360° version 7MP.

Panoramic vision and Intelligent Video Analytics

The camera uses the latest generation of the Bosch Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) software. IVA combined with full panoramic vision produces an extremely powerful surveillance tool which enriches full situational awareness. With intelligent tracking, movement can be followed continuously throughout the full image circle. There is no need to hand off tracking from one camera to another, greatly simplifying movement analysis.

The system reliably detects, tracks, and analyzes objects, and alerts you when predefined alarms are triggered. A smart set of alarm rules makes complex tasks easy and reduces false alarms to a minimum. Intelligent Video Analytics also adds sense and structure to your video by adding metadata. Metadata is generated from the full image circle and also separately on the E-PTZ channel. 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.

Client-side dewarping

With client-side dewarping, the camera streams a single circular non-dewarped image at 30 fps. Dewarping is performed with our dewarping software that is installed on the PC where multiple view modes are available or you can choose to use a third-party client-side dewarping software solution.

Edge dewarping

The edge dewarping in the camera provides three separate video channels simultaneously at 12.5 fps:

• Full image circle (Video 1 channel)
• Dewarped view mode (Video 2 channel)
• E-PTZ (Video 3 channel)

Different view modes can be selected for the video 2 channel. Your selection depends on the resolution you require and how you wish to view the dewarped image.

E-PTZ and regions of interest

The remote E-PTZ (Electronic Pan, Tilt and Zoom) controls allow you to select specific areas of the full image circle. These Regions of Interest (ROI) can be easily defined, allowing the most interesting part of a scene to be monitored separately. The high resolution ensures that details are not lost even when using the electronic zoom.

The E-PTZ feature of a panoramic camera has some advantages over normal PTZ cameras. There is no camera movement so the camera does not draw attention to itself or appear intrusive. Situational awareness is still retained even when zooming in on a particular object of interest. The smooth E- PTZ function helps navigation, and presets are available as they are with regular PTZ cameras.

Record exactly what you want

The camera provides the full resolution circular image for recording even if you are viewing only a portion of the scene. This means that you can always perform retrospective dewarping and analyses on the complete area covered and then zoom in on the region or object of interest.

With edge-dewarping you can also choose to only record the relevant parts of the scene which helps reduce bitrates significantly.

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.

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. Area-based encoding is only available with client-side dewarping.

Measured dynamic range

The dynamic range of the camera is outstanding and is obvious in real-world performance comparisons — 92 dB wide dynamic range (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.

Priority exposure control

To optimize image quality, eight zones for measuring the exposure can be drawn on the full image circle and assigned a priority level. These zones are given a higher or lower priority when the camera calculates the exposure level. This ensures that the important areas of the scene have the ideal exposure level.

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.

Flush-mount design for easy unobtrusive installation The flat-profile design of the camera makes it exceedingly suitable for installations where unobtrusive surveillance is required. The thin cover plate fits flush with any mounting surface, and its ecoating is easily painted to blend with most surroundings.

The discreet high quality IR corrected lens is factory focused and is not restricted by a bubble, so installation is simplified and sharpness is assured. Power for the camera is supplied via a Power-over-Ethernet compliant network cable connection. With this configuration, only a single cable connection is required to view, power, and control the 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.

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.

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 or Video Security Client, with the video security mobile app, or via third-party software. The Video Security Client has extensive dewarping capabilities and can be used for client-side dewarping as well as for viewing the available modes.

System integration

The camera conforms to the ONVIF Profile S, ONVIF Profile Q and ONVIF Profile G specifications. 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.
