VG5-7230 Series Description


The AUTODOME IP dynamic 7000 HD is an easy to install, high-speed 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 video and 30x 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 web based 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.

VG5-7230 Series Functions

High-performance HDR PTZ day/night camera


Exceptional dynamic range and low-light sensitivity make the camera an exceptional performer in scenes with simultaneous bright and dark areas. When operated in high dynamic range (HDR) mode, the camera makes multiple, simultaneous exposures of the same scene to capture details in both bright and dark parts of the scene. In low light, the camera switches automatically from colour to monochrome by removing the IR filter to boost sensitivity, while maintaining superior image quality.

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.

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.

Image Stabilization


As PTZ cameras continue to increase their optical zoom capabilities, image stabilization becomes critical to eliminate movement caused by unstable camera mounts. Minor movement of the camera mount can shift the field of view by a large distance when the camera is zoomed to a high value. This can render images unusable. The camera incorporates an Image Stabilization algorithm that allows the camera to detect continuous vibration. If it detects vibration, the camera dynamically corrects the shaky video in both the vertical and horizontal axis, resulting in exceptional image clarity and a stable field of view on the monitor.

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.

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.

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.

Content-Based Imaging Technology


Content-Based Imaging Technology (C-BIT) 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. The intelligent, automatic anti fog technology, for example, allows you to view video clearly through a foggy scene or can improve contrast in dark areas of a scene.

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 combine to 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.

Anti-fog


With the anti-fog 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).

Intelligence


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.

Intelligent Tracking

The camera utilizes the built-in Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) to follow an individual or an object continuously. Objects detected by IVA 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 tracking feature 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 “noise” 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 no motion is expected in the scene.
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.



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.

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.

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.

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 Automatic Network Replenishment (ANR) 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.

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 the 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.

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.

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, high resolution 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.

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. 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.

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 fibre 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 fibre optic solution.

Easy upgrade


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

Unsurpassed reliability


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).
