This thermal IP camera provides high-sensitivity thermal images using an un-cooled vanadium oxide microbolometer that delivers outstanding image quality. The camera is designed to combine the benefits of thermal imaging with the market leading Intelligent Video Analytics from Bosch. There is no need for natural or artificial lighting of the area of interest. The camera produces crisp and clear images day and night, even in challenging environments with smoke, dust, haze or fog.
The camera comes with a choice of narrow field-of- view (NFOV) or wide field-of-view (WFOV) lenses. The QVGA resolution variant is available with a frame rate of 9 or 60 fps; the VGA resolution variant is available with a frame rate of 9 or 30 fps. The camera is enclosed in a robust outdoor housing making it ideal for a wide range of applications in demanding environments.
Intelligent Video Analytics The integrated video analytics is both robust and intelligent. The Intelligence-at-the-Edge concept now delivers even more powerful features:
The mission critical video analytics reliably detects, tracks, and analyzes objects, and alerts you when predefined alarms are triggered. A smart set of alarm rules, together with object filters and tracking modes, makes complex tasks easy.
The system is also extremely robust and is able to reduce false alarms, for example from foliage or shaking objects, even in harsh weather conditions. Metadata is attached to your video to add sense and structure. This enables you to quickly retrieve the relevant images from hours of stored video. Metadata can also be used to deliver irrefutable forensic evidence or to optimize business processes based on people counting or crowd density information. Calibration is quick and easy – just enter the height of the camera. The internal gyro/accelerometer sensor provides the rest of the information to precisely calibrate the video analytics.
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 as well as integration with third-party video management systems.
The camera can run multiple independent streams that allows to set a different resolution and frame rate on the first and second stream. The user can also choose to use a copy of the first stream.
The third stream uses the I-frames of the first stream for recording; the fourth stream shows a JPEG image at a maximum of 10 Mbit/s.
Storage management Recording management can be controlled by the Bosch Video Recording Manager (Video Recording Manager) 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.
Hybrid operation A surge-protected analog video output allows full hybrid operation. This means that high resolution IP video streaming and an analog video output are available simultaneously. The hybrid functionality offers an easy migration path from legacy CCTV to a modern IP-based system.
Data security Special measures have been put in place to ensure the highest level of security for device access and data transport. The three-level password protection with security recommendations allows users to customize device access. Web browser access can be protected using HTTPS and firmware updates can also be protected with authenticated secure uploads.
The on-board Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) support, guarantee superior protection from malicious attacks. The 802.1x network authentication with EAP/TLS, supports
TLS 1.2 with updated cipher suites including AES 256 encryption. The advanced certificate handling offers:
- Self-signed unique certificates automatically created when required - Client and server certificates for authentication - Client certificates for proof of authenticity - Certificates with encrypted private keys
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.
System integration The camera conforms to the ONVIF Profile S specifications. Compliance with these standards 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. Visit the Bosch Integration Partner Program (IPP) website (ipp.boschsecurity.com) for more information.
