FLEXIDOME IP panoramic cameras offer 360-degree overview in a single image

Munich – The launching of FLEXIDOME IP panoramic camera family from Bosch marks the rise of highest image quality in the field of panoramic video surveillance solutions.

The FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000 MP camera has a fish eye lens that can view full 180-degree or 360-degree in a single image, with twelve megapixel sensor resolution at 30 frames per second. It houses on-board intelligent video analytics for delivering both real-time and documented information to alert operators whenever an instance arises.

The FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 5000 MP, also built with a fish-eye lens, offers the smallest 360-degree dome design in the market, with five megapixel sensor resolution at 15 frames per second.

Both camera models deliver a complete overview of a particular area, all in a single image. Without zero blind spots, the FLEXIDOME IP panoramic cameras easily capture moving objects, significantly improving the performance of any video surveillance solution. It is combined with Video Security Client software to help users choose up to six different viewing modes.

Network strain and storage requirements

Built-in technologies within FLEXIDOME IP panoramic cameras such as Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction and Intelligent Auto Exposure help lessen the costs of video surveillance, without compromising the image quality.

Firstly, Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction reduces storage costs and network strain by decreasing data transfer rates or bitrates by up to 50 percent. Since excess noise is already reduced at the source once the image is captured, lower bitrates do not adversely affect video quality.

Secondly, Intelligent Auto Exposure eliminates possible nuances due to front or backlight fluctuation. This technology dynamically adjusts camera exposure to instantly adapt to varying light conditions, providing perfect exposure of objects of interest at any time of day.

Lastly, edge dewarping, which is exclusively offered by FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000 MP, eliminates the effects of distortion caused by the fish-eye lens. This enables easy integration with third-party software, as the cameras directly provide undistorted images.

Access and control

FLEXIDOME IP panoramic cameras provide 24/7 remote access to camera controls, live video streams, recordings, and HD dewarped images from anywhere, regardless of available bandwidth through the Video Security Client software.

Through Dynamic Transcoding technology from Bosch, FLEXIDOME IP panoramic cameras in combination with either a DIVAR IP recording solution or VIDEOJET XTC,  allows adjustment of bitrate to available bandwidth, ensuring smooth video streaming.

On-board intelligent video analytics

Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA) in FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000 MP triggers alarms whenever needed, and instantly traces back important events captured in the video, in just seconds.

IVA technology adds sense and structure to video through metadata. By smartly combining up to 8 out of 16 available IVA rules, complex tasks are simplified and false alarms are minimized. IVA intelligently monitors moving objects, either automatically or based on a predefined alarm rule.

Ease of  installation

All panoramic cameras from Bosch are designed for extremely easy installation. For an instance, FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000 MP offers a unique twist-click installation concept, which significantly reduces installation time.

The twist-click installation allows the camera to be simply installed on the designated camera ring with just a twist and click; it does not require special tools. In addition, camera configuration and SD-card changes is made possible without having to demount the camera.

Firmware updates and embedding of latest features can be performed remotely for all models. All Bosch panoramic cameras are designed to be “almost invisible” and therefore, ideal for places which demand the highest aesthetics, such as museums and designer stores.

Being a recipient of Red Dot Award: Product Design 2015, FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000 MP only proves that it embodies outstanding and innovative design. It offers an overview image in observance with the highest level of detail, while meeting different architecture requirements.

Bosch IP high-definition cameras, encoders, and analytics work seamlessly with a wide range of security software and recording solutions from Bosch and many other industry providers. This is backed by ONVIF conformance (Open Network Video Interface Forum), edge dewarping, and the Integration Partner Program (IPP), which provides developers with immediate access to software development tools for easy integration of Bosch products with third-party systems.
