The camera holds all major international explosion protected certifications for safe use in almost any region of the world. In addition, the camera complies to industry standards such as Type 6P and IP68 ratings.

The camera gives you the confidence to ensure a safe workplace while maintaining image quality in the world’s most volatile locations.

Extegra IP Dynamic 9000 FX Series Functions

High dynamic range models

Dynamic models have a full 1080p25/30 HD imaging platform with multiple exposures capable of delivering high dynamic range (HDR) video in scenes with simultaneous bright and dark areas. When operated in HDR mode, the camera makes multiple, simultaneous exposures of the same scene to capture details in both bright and dark parts of the scene.

Integrated Zoom lens series and Auto Focus

EXTEGRA IP 9000 has a 30x optical Zoom lens (12x digital zoom) and an Auto Focus mechanism that allows installers to change the camera’s field of view (FOV) remotely without needing to make lens adjustments manually in the field. All lens configurations are possible from the head end system. When the Auto Focus feature is selected in the camera’s configuration, the camera continuously adjusts the lens to the correct image focus.

Extegra IP Dynamic 9000 FX Series Intelligent Defog

With the Intelligent Defog mode feature, visibility can be improved significantly when viewing foggy or other low-contrast scenes.

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).

Sodium vapour lamp white balance

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

Five (5) pre-programmed user modes

Five pre-programmed but configurable user modes, optimized with the best settings for a variety of typical applications, make on-site programming easy and user-friendly. Users select from the menu the mode that best defines the environment in which the camera is installed:

• Outdoor – General day-to-night changes with sun highlights and street lighting
• Indoor – Ideal mode for indoor applications where lighting is constant and not changing
• Low light – Optimized for sufficient details at low light
• Motion – Monitoring traffic or fast moving objects; motion artefacts are minimized
• Vibrant – Enhanced contrast colour reproduction and sharpness

Users have the ability to customize these modes, if necessary, for the specific requirements of the site.

Sophisticated alarm responses

The camera supports advanced alarm control that uses sophisticated rules-based logic to determine how to manage alarms. In its most basic form, a “rule” could define which input(s) should activate which output(s). In a more complex form, inputs and outputs can be combined with pre-defined or user-specified commands to perform advanced camera functions.

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 artefacts 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.

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.

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 the most efficient and powerful H.264 encoding platform capable of delivering high-quality HD video with very low network load. The new intelligent encoding capabilities drops 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 constrained bandwidths.


With built-in Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA), the camera reinforces the concept of Intelligence at the Edge. IVA is Bosch’s state-of-the-art intelligent video content analysis technology. With IVA, the camera reliably detects and analyzes moving objects while suppressing unwanted alarms from spurious sources in the image. IVA also allows the camera to detect multiple object behaviours including idle and removed objects, loitering, multiple line crossing, and trajectories. IVA supports BEV (Bird’s-Eye-View) People Counter and Assisted Self-Calibration. Configurable detection filters improve reliability and reduce operator work load.

Advanced networking capabilities

The camera offers Quality of Service (QoS) configuration options to ensure fast network response to camera data and images. Quality of Service (QoS) is the set of techniques to manage network resources. QoS manages the delay, delay variation (jitter), bandwidth, and packet loss parameters to guarantee the ability of a network to deliver predictable results. QoS identifies the type of data in a data packet and divides the packets into traffic classes that can be prioritized for forwarding.

The camera also supports the IPv6 internet-layer protocol for packet-switched internetworking across multiple IP networks. IPv6 uses 128-bit addresses (IPv4 uses 32-bit addressing), which allows for many more devices and users on the network as well as extra flexibility in allocating addresses and efficiency for routing traffic.

The camera maximizes your security investment by integrating with Bosch video products including Bosch Video Client, Bosch Video Management System, and the Bosch Recording Station, as well as the full range of Bosch video-over-IP products.

ONVIF conformant

The camera conforms to the ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) specification which guarantees interoperability between network video products regardless of manufacturer. The ONVIF Profile S specification allows easy integration with other conformant devices and VMS. ONVIF conformant devices are able to exchange live video, audio, metadata, and control information, and ensure that they are automatically discovered and connected to network applications such as video management systems.

Dual power options

The camera can be powered by a network compliant to High Power-over-Ethernet (Bosch’s version of High PoE) using a Bosch model of High PoE Midspans (sold separately). With this configuration, only a single (Cat5e/Cat6e) cable connection is required to view, to power, and to control the camera.

The camera can also accept a standard 24 VAC power source if a High PoE network interface will not be used. User-supplied wiring must be in compliance with electrical codes (Class 2 power levels).

For maximum reliability, the camera can be connected simultaneously to a High PoE Midspan and a separate 24 VAC power source. If High PoE and 24 VAC are applied simultaneously, the camera usually selects auxiliary input (24 VAC) and will draw minimal power from the High PoE Midspan. If the 24 VAC power source fails, the camera switches power input seamlessly to High PoE. After the 24 VAC power source is restored, the camera switches power input again to 24 VAC.

Refer to the table in the Installation/configuration notes section for more information.

Global explosion protection certification

The camera holds all major international certifications for installation of explosion-protected products. As a UL-listed product, the camera is certified for the division and zone system per the NEC standards. For Europe, it has ATEX certification. The camera has been tested against and conforms to the international IECEx scheme. For Brazil, the camera holds the INMETRO certification.

Extreme environment ready

The camera is available with an explosion-proof housing of either anodized aluminium (for less corrosive environments) or ruggedized, electro polished 316L stainless steel (which offers excellent corrosion protection in highly corrosive environments).

Subjected and certified to rigorous immersion tests, the camera has Type 6P and IP68 ratings for wet locations.

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.

For operation in areas prone to vibration, the camera has been tested to the IEC 60068 standards applicable to vibration and shock.

Ease of installation and servicing

A single pre-assembled unit with an integrated junction box, the camera is designed to be easy to install. Four 3/4‑in. conduit openings provide access to the convenient terminal block for all power, alarm, and Ethernet cable connections. (An M20 adapter is also included.) The optional fiber optic module, accessible through the junction box, provides versatility for longer cable runs or where electromagnetic interference is a concern.

Various mounting options with the mount adapter The EXS-ADPT is a stainless steel mount adapter that allows installers to mount an EXTEGRA IP 9000/EX65 device to a MIC wall mount bracket (MIC-WMB) and then to one of the following mounting brackets originally designed for the MIC Series of cameras:

• Spreader plate (MIC-SPR), for installation on a wall
• Corner mount bracket (MIC-CMB), for installation in a corner
• Pole mount bracket (MIC-PMB), for installation on the side of a CCTV pole

Refer to the datasheet “MIC Mounting Brackets and Other Accessories” for details about these mounts.
