The AUTODOME 7000 HD is an easy to install, highspeed PTZ dome camera, in a field-proven indoor/ outdoor pendant housing or indoor in-ceiling housing, that delivers unmatched picture quality and network performance day and night with superb high-definition (HD) 1080p25/30 (2MP) video and 20x optical zoom. The camera provides complete network-based control of all dome functionality including pan/tilt/zoom operation, presets, tours and alarms as well as webbased configuration of all dome settings. It also provides direct network video streaming using H.264 compression / bandwidth throttling to efficiently manage bandwidth and storage requirements while delivering outstanding image quality.

Autodome IP 7000 Functions

High-performance PTZ day/night camera

The camera has a large, effective sensor area that contributes to very high camera sensitivity. The camera can be configured to operate in 720p50/60 mode for capturing fast motion (for example, in traffic or gaming scenarios). The default 1080p25/30 mode
delivers high resolution images with six times more
details than a standard definition (SD) camera.

Intelligent Defog

Users can configure the mode to activate automatically when the global contrast enhancement method in the camera detects fog and adds light to the video image (and then deactivates when the fog clears or the scene changes).

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.

Virtual masking

The camera offers Virtual Masking, which gives users flexibility to mask parts of the scene which should not be considered for flow analysis to trigger Intelligent Tracking. This allows users to mask from IVA/Tracking any background motion (moving trees, pulsating lights, and busy roads) in the scene without blocking the motion from the video.

Intelligent Tracking

The camera utilizes the built-in Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) to follow an individual or an object continuously. Objects detected by IVA when the camera is in a stationary position activate the Intelligent Tracking feature, which controls the pan/ tilt/zoom actions of the camera to keep the tracked object in the scene.

The new Intelligent Tracking is based on robust flow detection algorithms which can reliably track moving objects even under challenging scenes. The tracking and detection reliability can be enhanced further with virtual masking for scenes with a lot of background motion such as trees or other objects creating constant motion in the scene. The camera supports three modes for Intelligent Tracking:

Auto mode: When configured in this mode, the camera actively analyzes the video to detect any moving object. If it detects movement, it begins to track the object. This mode is most useful for scenarios where normally no motion is expected.

One Click mode: In this mode, users can click an object moving in the live video image to enable the camera to track the movement of the selected object. This mode is most useful for scenarios where normal scene activity is expected.

IVA-triggered mode: In this mode, the camera continuously analyzes the scene for IVA alarms or IVA rule violations. If an IVA rule is violated, it triggers the advanced tracking feature of the camera to start following the object / person that triggered the alarm. This unique combination of robust IVA and Intelligent Tracking allows the camera to track moving objects of interest without getting distracted by other moving objects in the scene.


With built-in video content analysis, the AUTODOME reinforces the Intelligence-at-the-Edge concept where edge devices become increasingly intelligent. The AUTODOME comes with Bosch’s Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA) built-in. IVA is state-of-the-art intelligent video analysis that reliably detects, and analyzes moving objects while suppressing unwanted alarms from spurious sources in the image.

The IVA functionality built into the AUTODOME is able to detect idle and removed objects as well as loitering, multiple line crossing, and trajectories. IVA also supports BEV (Bird’s Eye View) People counting.

Assisted Self Calibration and configurable detection filters improve reliability and reduce operator work load.

PTZ drive and mechanism

The AUTODOME 7000 supports 256 pre-positions and two styles of Guard Tours: Preset and Record/ Playback. Users can configure the preset standard tour with as many as 256 sequential pre-positions, with a configurable dwell time between pre-positions. The AUTODOME Series also provides support for two recorded tours, which are recorded macros of an operator’s movements, including pan, tilt, and zoom activities, and can be played back with the click of a button.

Pan and tilt preset repeatability are accurate to within ±0.1 degrees to ensure that the correct scene is captured every time. The camera delivers variable pan/ tilt speeds from a crawl speed of only 0.1 degrees per second to a full 400 degrees per second. The camera is capable of pan speeds of 400 degrees per second and tilt speeds of 300 degrees per second between prepositions. The camera provides a tilt angle 18 degrees above the horizon, and a pan range of up to 360 degrees continuous rotation.

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 camera programming on-site 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 – general day-to-night changes without sun highlights and street lighting
Low light –optimized for sufficient details at low light
Motion – monitoring traffic or fast moving objects; motion artifacts are minimized
Vibrant – enhanced contrast color reproduction and sharpness

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

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.

Comprehensive streaming capabilities on Bosch’s Common Product Platform (CPP4)

The camera has an advanced, efficient H.264 encoder (CPP4) embedded for high quality HD streaming video and very efficient streaming and network capabilities. The new platform supports simultaneous streaming of individually configurable HD streams, and allows a choice of HD resolution in combination of SD resolutions.

Recording and storage management

A memory card (SD (Secure Digital), SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity), or SDXC (Secure Digital eXtended Capacity)) 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.

Dual power options

All models can be powered by a High Power-over-Ethernet (Bosch High PoE)-compliant network using a Bosch High PoE Midspan (sold separately) over a single network cable and/or a 24VAC power supply. Certain models can also be powered by any PoE+ Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE; midspan or switch) that is compliant to the IEEE 802.3at, class 4 standard and/or a 24 VAC power supply.

When powered using High PoE or 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 High PoE.

Video management system support

The camera ships with Bosch Video Client (BVC), an easy-to-use software from Bosch that is suitable for midsize installations. For large enterprise systems, AUTODOME cameras can be used with Bosch Video Management System (BVMS), which allows enhanced video management and viewing capabilities.

In addition, the camera is supported/integrated into all of the leading third party video management systems. ONVIF conformant

The AUTODOME Series conforms to the ONVIF Profile S specification allowing easy integration with the conformant devices and VMS.

The camera conforms to the ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) specification which guarantees interoperability between network video products regardless of manufacturer. ONVIF conformant devices are able to exchange live video, audio, metadata and control information. They are automatically discovered and connected to network applications such as video management systems.

Fiber Optic Kit

Bosch offers the optional VG4-SFPSCKT, a unique media converter module for use with various Bosch devices. This media converter module is designed to accept a wide-range of 10/100 Mbps SFP modules for use with Multimode or Single-mode optical fiber with LC or SC connectors.

The media converter module along with the SFP module is user-installed directly into the camera‘s power supply box to provide an integrated fiber optic solution.

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.

Easy upgrade

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

Ease of installation and servicing

The camera has been designed for quick and easy installation; a key feature from Bosch CCTV products. All housings feature recessed screws and latches for increased tamper resistance.

Indoor/outdoor pendant housings are rated to provide IP66 protection and offer an operating temperature range down to -40 °C (-40 °F). The indoor/outdoor pendant comes fully assembled with a sunshield and ready for wall or pipe applications with the proper mounting hardware (sold separately). In addition, the camera models with both pendant and in-ceiling housing come equipped with a low-impact, highresolution acrylic bubble for enhanced image clarity. You can easily convert the outdoor pendant for indoor applications by removing the sunshield. Bosch offers a full complement of hardware and accessories (sold separately) for wall, corner, mast, roof, pipe mount, and in-ceiling applications for indoor and outdoor environments, which allow the camera to be adapted easily to individual site requirements.

Advanced networking capabilities

The AUTODOME offers advanced capabilities so you can configure the camera to take advantage of the latest networking technology.

The AUTODOME offers Quality of Service (QoS) configuration options to ensure fast network response to PTZ 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 AUTODOME 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 internet as well as extra flexibility in allocating addresses and efficiency for routing traffic.
