The first ruggedized PTZ camera with UHD (“4K”) resolution, MIC IP ultra 7100i offers unmatched imaging and reliability in extreme environments. The camera’s ruggedized design meets customer expectations in demanding environments that exceed the capabilities of conventional IP cameras. Even in installations subject to harsh shock/vibration conditions and/or extreme weather, the camera provides high-quality video images.
The camera is the ideal choice for:
Transportation: highways, bridges/tunnels, and ports Critical infrastructure: power generation/ transmission, refineries/pipelines, and mining High-security: government facilities and data centers Mission-critical applications involving harsh environments that require high-resolution imaging Complex scenes with many details under any lighting condition Installations where downtime is undesired because of high service costs
Ruggedized design for extreme applications The camera is designed to last in surveillance applications that are beyond the mechanical capabilities of conventional positioning systems. The entire metal body is anodized and has been engineered to withstand high-impact, low-frequency vibration. The camera models comply to IK10 rating for impact resistance and to the IEC 60068 standards applicable to vibration and shock. The camera has a closed-loop positioning system. The system allows the camera to maintain its position under continuous vibration or after an extreme shock event, even without homing or pre-position calibration. The camera benefits from Bosch domain knowledge in material engineering and coatings. As a result, the superior metallurgy and the finish of the camera provide unprecedented protection against corrosion. The camera has been tested for 2000 hours for salt spray per ISO 12944-6: C5-M (High); Aluminum Housing Components.
Defroster on the viewing window The window defroster helps to decrease or to prevent a build-up of ice on the camera window. Even in very cold environments, where other cameras suffer from frosted windows, the MIC camera lets you see more and see better.
Robust design rated to an industry-leading IP68, Type 6P, IK10 Subjected and certified to rigorous dust and immersion tests (IP68, Type 6P) and impact test (IK10), MIC cameras are perfectly suited for installation in even the most unforgiving environments. Anodized aluminum housing and robust, powder coat paint give unequalled corrosion protection to each MIC camera. Reliable O-ring seals completely protect the internal components from the external environment, meaning that there is no need to pressurize the camera. To guarantee unit integrity, the factory tests each MIC camera for leaks before shipping.
Pan and tilt drive mechanism The pan and tilt mechanism is a ruggedized, direct- drive system. The brushless motors directly control the pan and tilt movement using a finely-tuned gear train designed to minimize backlash and support continuous operation without significant wear and tear. With a full 360o continuous rotation pan and 290o tilt control (on upright models without illuminators) and super-quick pan (120°/second) and tilt (90°/second) for exceptional viewing capability, the camera outperforms other cameras in its class.
Snap to zoom Drawing a box in the image will trigger the camera to zoom to the correct position.
Dual-mode Illumination The MIC illuminator accessory (sold separately) has IR LEDs and White light LEDs. The illuminator is field- installable. Note: The cameras in this product family are compatible with MIC-ILx-400 models only. The distances and the performance depend on the environmental light conditions.
The MIC camera can steer the IR beam dynamically to match the illumination intensity with the camera’s field of view according to the zoom level. Beam intensity is controlled automatically or manually, depending on user preference. Decreasing intensity reduces overexposure.
The patented, integrated Constant Light technology delivers a consistent level of illumination performance throughout the life of the product, even in fluctuating temperatures.
White light mode allows operators to capture full scene details in color or use the light as a deterrent effect.
H.265 high-efficiency video encoding The camera is designed on the most efficient and powerful H.264 and H.265/HEVC encoding platform. The camera is capable of delivering high-quality and high-resolution video with very low network load. With a doubling of encoding efficiency, H.265 is the new compression standard of choice for IP video surveillance systems.
Intelligent streaming Smart encoding capabilities, together with Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction technology and analytics, reduce the bandwidth consumption to extremely low levels. Only relevant information in the scene, like motion, or objects found with the analytics, need to be encoded.
The camera is capable of quad streaming which allows the camera to deliver independent, configurable streams for live viewing, recording, or remote monitoring via constrained bandwidths.
Recording and storage management Control recording management with the Bosch Video Recording Manager application, or use the local storage and iSCSI targets in the camera directly without any recording software. Use a memory card of a maximum of 2 TB for recording "at the edge" or for Automatic Network Replenishment (ANR) technology to improve the reliability of the recording. Pre-alarm recording in RAM reduces bandwidth consumption on the network and extends the effective life of the memory card.
Intelligent Video Analytics on the edge The camera includes the latest release of Intelligent Video Analytics application for use on pre- positions. Designed for mission-critical applications, the video analytics can reliably detect, track, and analyze moving objects while suppressing unwanted alarms from spurious sources in the image, even in harsh weather conditions.
Advanced tasks like multiple line crossing, loitering, idle / removed object detection, crowd density estimation, occupancy and people counting are available for live alarming and forensic search. Object filters based on size, speed, direction, aspect ratio, and color can be defined.
A simplified calibration mode reduces installation time significantly, because you only need to enter the installation height once for each camera, independent of pre-positions. After the camera is calibrated, the analytics engine can automatically classify objects as upright person, car, bike, or truck.
Support for specific use cases The video analytics software offers easy setup by providing optimal default values for several applications. Calibrate the camera, then simply select the desired use case and adapt the offered alarm fields and lines to your field of view. This is available for the following scenarios:
Intrusion detection: small area, single alarm field Intrusion detection: long distance, two alarm fields have to trigger People counting Traffic monitoring: wrong way detection Traffic monitoring: automatic incident detection with wrong way detection, pedestrian detection, slow vehicles, stopped vehicles and dropped objects
Video analytics while camera is moving Outside of pre-positions and even while the PTZ camera is moving, whether on guard tours or manually, the Intelligent Video Analytics application can detect and start alarms when objects are in alarm fields. These alarm fields are defined once across all PTZ camera views. The camera can automatically trigger an alarm if any part of a field within the camera's view becomes active while on a guard tour sweeping across the monitored areas.
Camera Trainer Based on examples of target objects and non-target objects, the new Camera Trainer program uses machine learning to allow the user to define objects of interest and generate detectors for them. In contrast to the moving objects that the Intelligent Video Analytics application detects, the Camera Trainer program detects both moving and non-moving objects and classifies them immediately. Using Configuration Manager, you can configure the Camera Trainer program using both live video as well as recordings available through the respective camera. The resulting detectors can be downloaded and uploaded for distribution to other cameras.
A free of charge license is required to activate the Camera Trainer program.
Intelligent Tracking When the Intelligent Video Analytics application in the camera detects objects or individuals, the camera can automatically activate the Intelligent Tracking feature, which controls the pan/tilt/zoom actions of the camera to track objects and keep them in view. The newest generation of the Intelligent Tracking feature ensures smoother camera motion for more comfortable viewing and more reliable tracking of objects even under challenging scenes.
Areas with potentially interfering background motion (moving trees, pulsating lights, and busy roads) can be masked out. The camera supports 2 Intelligent Tracking modes:
• Auto mode: In this mode, the camera follows any object that has triggered an alarm in the Intelligent Video Analytics application. This mode is most useful for scenarios where the alarm cases can be clearly defined, for example, when no motion is expected at all.
• Click mode: In this mode, users can click on any object detected by the Intelligent Video Analytics application 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.
Image Stabilization The camera incorporates a built-in, optical Image stabilization feature which prevents pixel loss and outperforms electronic Image stabilization. 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.
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.
• Standard This mode is optimized for most standard scenes both indoor and outdoor.
• Sensitivity boost This mode provides maximum sensitivity in low light scenes by using longer exposure times, resulting in bright images even in extreme low light.
• Fast movement This mode is used for monitoring fast moving objects like cars in traffic scenes. Motion artifacts are minimized and the image is optimized for a sharp and detailed picture in color and monochrome.
• Vibrant This mode provides a more vivid image with increased contrast, sharpness, and saturation.
• Color Only (Traffic) In this mode, the camera does not switch to monochrome mode at low light levels. The mode is optimized to minimize motion artifacts and to capture the color of vehicles/pedestrians and traffic lights, even at night, for scenarios such as city surveillance and traffic monitoring.
• Illuminator This mode gives optimized performance when using the MIC illuminator accessory.
Auto Exposure (AE) region and Focus region With the Auto Exposure (AE) function, the camera computes the lighting condition of the entire scene. Then the camera determines the optimum level of iris, gain, and shutter speed.
In AE region mode, users can designate a specified area of the scene, based on pre-positions. The camera computes the lighting condition of the specified area. Then the camera determines the optimum level of iris, gain, and shutter speed to get an image. Focus region mode, unlike normal auto focus mode, allows users to focus on a specified area of the scene.
Data security Special measures are necessary to ensure the highest level of security for device access and data transport. On initial setup, the camera is only accessible over secure channels. You must set a service-level password in order to access camera functions.
Web browser and viewing client access can be protected using HTTPS or other secure protocols that support state-of-the-art TLS 1.2 protocol with updated cipher suites including AES encryption with 256 bit keys. No software can be installed in the camera, and only authenticated firmware can be uploaded. A three- level password protection with security recommendations allows users to customize device access. Network and device access can be protected using 802.1x network authentication with EAP/TLS protocol. Superior protection from malicious attacks is guaranteed by the Embedded Login Firewall, on-board Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) support. 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
Software sealing After camera configuration is set and should not be changed, system administrators can enable software protection that seals the camera configuration. Any change of the sealing status and any change to static configuration, accidentally or intentional, will break the seal. The camera then sends an alarm message that the video management system can use to start an appropriate alarm scenario. The camera creates a separate log file of all changes that have an effect on the sealing status.
System integration and ONVIF conformance The camera conforms to the specifications for ONVIF Profile S and ONVIF Profile G. (ONVIF is the acronym for Open Network Video Interface Forum.) For H.265 configuration, the camera also supports Media Service 2, which is part of ONVIF Profile T. 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. For more information, see the Bosch Integration Partner Program (IPP) website (ipp.boschsecurity.com).
Ease of installation The camera supports mounting in upright, inverted, or canted orientation. The on-site canting functionality lets installers tilt down the upper section of the camera at a 35° angle. At this angle, operators can see the scene directly below the camera.
The camera has been designed for quick and easy installation, a key feature from Bosch IP video security products.
Power options The camera can be powered by a network compliant to High Power-over-Ethernet using a Bosch model of High PoE Midspan (sold separately). With this configuration, only a single cable connection (Cat5e/Cat6 Shielded Twisted Pair (STP)) is needed to view, to power, and to control the camera.
For maximum reliability, the camera can operate with a redundant power system of a High PoE Midspan and a separate 24 VAC power source connected simultaneously. If either the High PoE or 24 VAC power source fails, the camera seamlessly transitions to the remaining power source. The 60 W midspan can supply power to models without an illuminator accessory. The 95 W midspans can supply power to all models of MIC IP ultra 7100i, including models with the illuminator accessory. 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).
Camera Diagnostics The camera has several built-in sensors / advanced diagnostics that display warnings on the camera’s OSD about the health of the camera. The diagnostics log records the events such as:
Low voltage - a drop in incoming power below the level where the camera becomes non-functional High temperature - the internal temperature exceeds specifications Low temperature - the internal temperature exceeds minimum levels High humidity - the internal humidity exceeds 70% High vibration - the acceptable level of acceleration forces was exceeded Total hours of camera operation Illuminator aging history
Certain events also appear on the camera’s OSD. These diagnostic records are available for the installation or service technician to review.
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), which pushes the limits of products to ensure reliability throughout their lifetime.
Project Assistant Project Assistant by Bosch is the market’s most easy- to-use app for initial installation and basic configuration of IP cameras. Off-site and without connection to the camera, basic configurations can already be covered and shared with colleagues. On- site, these pre-configurations can simply be pushed onto the camera, making the installation procedure easier and less time consuming. Already configured cameras can be integrated as well. The app allows easy viewing and adjustment of the camera's field of view. The app automatically generates a comprehensive report of the commissioned cameras.
