Flexidome IP Panoramic 5000 MP Series Description


The FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 5000 MP is a discreet, aesthetic, panoramic camera in a compact design. The 5MP sensor operating at 15 fps provides full panoramic surveillance with complete area coverage and fine details. The camera offers full situational awareness and simultaneous E-PTZ views in high resolution.

When mounted centrally on a ceiling, the 360°camera lens gives complete wall‑to‑wall coverage.


The lens captures a circular image. Our client-side dewarping software transforms this circular image into several different distortion-free rectangular views.


Two versions are available, an indoor version and an IK10, IP66-rated outdoor version.

Flexidome IP Panoramic 5000 MP Series System overview

Advantages of panoramic surveillance

Panoramic surveillance offers full 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.

Flexidome IP Panoramic 5000 MP Series Functions

5MP sensor at 15 fps

The high 5MP sensor resolution together with a frame rate of 15 fps makes this camera an ideal solution for many applications in the field of panoramic image capture. The high resolution provides a clear overview and detailed images.

Client-side dewarping

With client-side dewarping, the camera streams a single circular non-dewarped image at 15 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.

DORI coverage

DORI (Detect, Observe, Recognize, Identify) is a standard system (EN-50132-7) for defining the ability of a camera to distinguish persons or objects within a covered area. The maximum distance at which a camera/lens combination can meet these criteria is shown below:

When mounted at a height of 3 m (10 ft) the camera has the following coverage radius for the four levels:


DORI  DORI definition Coverage radius
Detect 25 px/m (8 px/ft) 19 m (62 ft)
Observe 63 px/m (19 px/ft) 7 m (23 ft)
Recognize 125 px/m (38 px/ft) 4 m (13 ft)
Identify 250 px/m (76 px/ft) 1 m (3 ft)

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.

Full image recording

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.

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

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.

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 bandwidth in kbits/s for various image rates is shown in the table:


fps 5MP (full image circle)
15 1250
7.5 950
3.75 550



The MOTION+ video motion analysis system that is built into all camera versions is the perfect solution for applications where basic video content analysis features are required. MOTION+ shows motion metadata in an overlay display. By using MOTION+ data as input, smarter imaging algorithms bring improved image quality and more efficient bitrates. It also enables extended tamper detection capabilities.

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.

Built-in microphone and audio alarm

The indoor version of the camera has a built-in microphone to allow operators to listen in on the monitored area. Audio detection can be used to generate an alarm if needed.

If required by local laws, the microphone can be permanently blocked via a secure license key.

Easy installation

Power for the camera can be 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. 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.

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

The camera is pre-assembled with an indoor surface mount bracket which allows you to mount the camera directly onto a ceiling, wall or single-gang box. The rear connectors are orientated for easy accessibility. A complete set of mounting accessories, such as a wall or pipe mount, are available.

No focus or pan/tilt adjustments are required as the camera, with its 360° lens, provides complete coverage of a small room. The high quality lens is factory focused and so installation is simplified and sharpness is assured.

Suitable for diverse environments

The indoor version is designed to resemble a smoke detector. This compact design offers discreet and unobtrusive placement in any indoor environment. The outdoor version with cast-aluminium housing and transparent bubble is designed to withstand the equivalent of 20 joule of impact force (IK10), which is equivalent to a 5 kg (12 lbs) steel ball dropped from 40cm.

Together with the outdoor surface mount box provided in the package, the outdoor version is protected against water and dust ingress according to IP66. This makes it ideal for outdoor use in demanding environments.

Simple set-up

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

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 specification. Compliance with this standard 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.

Because the camera supplies a full circle image stream, it can easily integrate with third-party client side dewarping software solutions.
