NPC-20012-F2 Description

The Bosch 720p and VGA indoor microbox cameras are ready-to-use, complete network video surveillance systems inside a compact and stylish housing. These cameras bring 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.

NPC-20012-F2 System overview

iDNR reduces bandwidth and storage requirements

The camera uses intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction (iDNR) 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 30% 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 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. The average typical optimized bandwidth (for firmware 5.8) in bits/s for various image rates is shown in the table:

IPS 720p VGA
30 1200 600
15 955 478
5 568 284
2 245 122

Compact and stylish design
Ideal for indoor use, the compact aesthetic design is suitable for installations where housing size and appearance are important. The camera is supplied with a versatile mounting bracket, allowing it to be easily positioned for best coverage.

720p or VGA resolutions with multiple streams

The camera is available in 720p or VGA resolutions at 30 images per second (ips). The innovative multistreaming 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.

Edge recording

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

Two-way audio

The 720p version has a built-in microphone and loudspeaker that allows remote users to listen in on an area and communicate messages to visitors or intruders via the loudspeaker. 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.

Cloud-based facilities

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

The power supply adapters delivered with the cameras provide the 5 VDC power supply required. The 720p version can be supplied via a Power-over-Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af) compliant network cable connection. With this configuration, only a single cable connection is required to view, power, and control the camera. To increase system reliability, the 720p version camera can be simultaneously connected to both PoE and 5

VDC supplies.

Additionally, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) can be used, which will allow continuous operation, even during a power failure. For trouble free network cabling, the cameras support Auto-MDIX.

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 video features: using a web browser, with the supplied Bosch Video Client, or with the video security mobile App.

The Bosch Video Client PC surveillance software offers a user-friendly interface to support easy installation and configuration, and is supplied completely free-ofcharge. It provides easy live viewing of multiple cameras, playback, forensic search and export.

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

Bosch IP standard- and high-definition cameras, encoders and analytics work seamlessly with a wide range of security software and recording solutions from Bosch and other industry providers. Through ONVIF conformance, the open availability of Bosch video software development kits and a team dedicated to special integration and support projects, it is easy to manage Bosch video products within your system design.
