At ISC West, Bosch will introduce a renewed portfolio of IP cameras, all featuring video analytics at the edge as a standard feature. The IP 4000i, IP 5000i, and IP 6000 fixed dome, box and bullet cameras provide indoor or outdoor, day or night, discrete or visible video security. And with built-in video analytics as standard, they offer the ability to start repurposing captured video data for uses other than security alone. The AUTODOME IP 4000i, 5000i and 7000 locate, track and zoom in on objects quickly and easily. With a resolution of 1080p and 30x optical zoom, users can easily identify objects over large distances and have total control over what they choose to see.
MIC IP moving cameras combine a rugged design with built-in Intelligent Video Analytics that is specifically designed for the most demanding environments. Even in the most extreme conditions, video analytics can further improve the level of security or enable the video data to do more than security alone. The new MIC IP fusion 9000i offers a unique feature in terms of video analytics: metadata fusion. It fuses the metadata of the camera’s built-in optical and thermal imager, providing users with full situational awareness—regardless of the video stream that is being watched. For example, even if the source of an alarm is not visible in the optical imager stream, the thermal imager will still detect it and alert the user—helping them focus on unseen things that need attention. Another innovation offered by both MIC IP models is video analytics in motion. An operator is alerted, or the camera’s Intelligent Tracking feature is triggered, the moment a moving object or person is detected while the MIC IP camera is panning, tilting or zooming.
By offering built-in video analytics as standard, Bosch enables customers to interpret video data at the source and to re-assign it to help them make smarter business decisions. In the future, video analytics will help customers achieve up to 100 percent utilization of the huge amounts of video data collected—using the hidden potential of video to monitor presence to reduce utility bills, identify patterns in customer activity, and much more.
In addition to video analytics as standard, the new portfolio of IP cameras includes the latest intelligent bitrate management techniques combined with H.265 compression to reduce bitrate by up to 80 percent. The cameras also feature various software and hardware measures, such as a built-in Trusted Platform Module, to keep video data secure.
At the show, Bosch will also introduce In-Store Analytics, a solution that uses intelligent Bosch IP panoramic cameras to give retailers valuable insights on store traffic. This cloud-based service uses position data generated by the cameras to provide detailed information on how shoppers travel through a store and interact with the displays. This helps retailers evaluate the performance of displays to give them the information they need to increase customer engagement with products and drive additional sales.
