Bosch Auto Dome Intelligent PTZ Camera
Bosch’s AutoDome modular camera system is a revolutionary new concept in dome cameras. More than just a series of cameras, it’s a dome platform built around a system of intelligent, interchangeable modules that allow you to update camera functionality quickly and cost effectively. Using common components lets you install a basic camera system today and migrate to a more advanced version tomorrow – without having to replace the entire dome, thus protecting your initial investment.

Interchangeable Modules
The entire AutoDome system is based on five interchangeable modules: the CPU, camera, housing, communications, and power supply. Simply swap one of AutoDome’s interchangeable modules and quickly upgrade from analog to IP, color to day/night, or add motion detection, and AutoTrack. Never before have you had the ability to adapt a security system to your changing needs this quickly or inexpensively.

By using the same housing components, all installations have a consistent look, and observers have no idea which type of camera (if any) is watching over them. This unique, modular design also gives you the flexibility to move cameras between different housings when special coverage is needed, or as site plan requirements change. For example, an 18x PTZ camera over a specific area could easily be “hot-swapped” to a 26x day/night without removing the power. AutoDome’s Ethernet communications module allows you to add IP functionality while maintaining connectivity to existing analog inputs and outputs.

500i Series Highlights
AutoDome 500i Series adds real intelligence to your video surveillance applications. Equipped with AutoTrack II the latest version of Bosch’s award-winning motion tracking software, built-in image motion detection and a sophisticated alarm "handling “rules” engine, the AutoDome 500i Series incorporates advanced, intelligent video features unmatched by any other camera system.

The AutoDome 500i Series supports a variety of standard and optional video and data transmission methods, including Bilinx (over coax and UTP), fiber, and even TCP/ IP over Ethernet. Remote control, configuration, and firmware updates can also be performed over these cables, offering you unparalleled control of your cameras. Cable compensation provides xtended coaxial and UTP distance runs while preventing the image quality degradation caused by signal losses from long cable lengths.

500i Series Highlights
Image control and quality are integral aspects of any PTZ dome system, and the AutoDome delivers with 470/460 TVL (NTSC/PAL) horizontal resolution. The 500i Series is available with either an 18x or 26x optical zoom lens, and all 500i Series systems offer a full 12x digital zoom. The patented AutoScaling (proportional zoom) and AutoPivot (automatically rotates and flips the camera) ensure optimal control.

Day/night capabilities and outstanding sensitivity make 500i Series cameras exceptional performers in all lighting conditions. In low light, these cameras automatically switch from color to monochrome by removing the IR filter to boost the infrared illumination sensitivity, while maintaining superior image quality. For operation in the darkest conditions, the  SensUp control feature automatically reduces the shutter speed to as little as one second. This increases sensitivity by more than 50 times.

Auto Track II
Bosch introduced the industry’s first automated motion tracking system, and now we’ve made this award-winning technology even better. The AutoDome 500i Series contains an advanced DSP that provides real-time video processing for incredibly smooth object tracking.

AutoTrack II utilizes Bosch’s unique “virtual masking” technology. These “invisible” masks are created to act just like privacy masks, except that only the AutoTrack can see them – and it knows to ignore any motion behind them. This enables the AutoTrack to ignore extraneous background motion, such as a tree blowing in the wind, making it ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Video Motion Detection (VMD)
With AutoDome, you can create a “region of interest” within a preset position where motion is to be detected. The AutoDome 500i Series supports a total of 10 individual regions of interest (one per pre-position). VMD also takes advantage of virtual masking to ignore areas of unwanted motion.
Optional hybrid analog/IP operation
Optional hybrid connectivity allows the AutoDome to simultaneously stream IP video across a local or wide area network,  and CVBS video via coaxial cabling to support existing analog equipment. Network video streams are sent over IP networks and can be viewed with the Bosch DiBos Digital Video Recorder, or on a PC running VIDOS video management software.  Alternatively, a Bosch IP video decoder can be used to display the video on an analog CVBS or VGA monitor. For maximum accessibility, video can be viewed using a Web browser. The BNC connection provides direct input to a conventional analog matrix switcher or DVR, further enhancing AutoDome’s viewing and recording flexibility. Hybrid operation allows simultaneous dome control over the network and via biphase analog controllers.
MPEG4 Encoding
AutoDome’s IP Communications Module uses the latest MPEG-4 compression technology to provide DVD-quality 4CIF video at frame rates up to 25/30 PAL/NTSC images per second (IPS). The IP module also leverages bandwidth throttling and multicasting capabilities to efficiently manage bandwidth and storage requirements while delivering the best possible image quality and resolution.
Tri-streaming video
Bosch’s innovative tri-streaming feature enables AutoDomes equipped with the optional IP Communications Module to generate two independent MPEG-4 streams and a JPEG stream simultaneously. This allows you to stream high-quality images for live viewing while recording at a reduced frame rate, and at the same time, stream JPEG images to a remote PDA device.

IP
Internet Protocol is the method used to exchange data between two computers or other systems (in this case the alarm system and the ARC) via the internet. EURO ONE IP uses IP via a DSL (broadband) connection as its primary (fixed) path.
Router
Provides the gateway your customer’s premises into the global IP network. The router enables the control panel to communicate with the Emizon platform and then onto the ARC.
GPRS
General Packet Radio Service is a standard for wireless communications which runs at a faster speed than GSM. It is idea for sending and receiving small bursts of data, as well as larger volumes. The EURO ONE IP panel uses Vodafone’s GPRS network as its secondary communication path.
