Dual illumination and built-in AI support predictive solutions in city surveillance and perimeter protection applications for enhanced safety.
Bosch has launched the AUTODOME IP starlight 5100i IR, the new IR model in the AUTODOME family. With enhanced image quality, improved zoom capabilities and built-in artificial intelligence (AI), this new AUTODOME model helps operators to react before a potential situation occurs. Helping them to know what’s next.
The new AUTODOME IP starlight 5100i IR and non-IR models are specially designed for outdoor surveillance applications. Both promise an excellent low light performance thanks to the built-in starlight technology. However, the main difference is that the IR version offers dual illumination. The AUTODOME IP starlight 5100i IR includes an automatic rain-sensing wiper to maintain clear images during wet conditions and is weatherized with an IP66 rating and vandal-resistant IK10 housing.
Usable video 24/7
One of the greatest challenges in city surveillance is capturing usable video during the daytime, as well as in low-light and pitch dark scenarios. The new IR model comes with a 1.1/8” sensor, 4 megapixel resolution, 30x zoom, HDR X combined with starlight technology and dual illumination – integrated IR and white light – to capture usable images 24/7. The new HDR X technology has a dynamic range of up to 133 dB ensuring perfect exposure while eliminating motion-related artefacts in scenes with challenging lighting conditions and moving objects during the daytime. In low-light scenes, starlight technology provides clear and relevant images with color filtering down to 0.010 lux. At night, especially in pitch dark scenes, the camera's white light provides full-color images in complete darkness up to 60 meters (196 feet). The integrated IR illumination can help identify objects in monochrome up to 320 meters (1,049 feet) thanks to the built-in intelligent IR beam, which ensures optimum illumination of objects regardless of zoom level. The visible white light acts as a deterrent to intrusion, loitering, and other undesirable activities in city surveillance settings.
Giving operators the Power to Predict
Built-in AI like video analytics from Bosch, uses metadata to add sense and structure to video footage, enabling cameras to understand what they are seeing and gives users smart insights to know what is next. The new AUTODOME IP starlight 5100i IR camera comes with built-in Essential Video Analytics to convert video data into actionable insights. Relevant insights, like the detection of moving objects, help to create sterile zones, which establishes a boundary prohibiting any activity. These sterile zones enhance perimeter protection of buildings, parking lots and restricted areas, increasing overall safety. It provides clear insights that can help operators make predictions and take action before events occur.
Secure by design, sustainable for tomorrow
AUTODOME IP starlight 5100i cameras are, like all Bosch IP cameras, secure by design. They offer a systematic approach centered on a built-in Trusted Platform Module (TPM), safely storing all certificates and keys needed for authentication and encryption. This method offers extensive user management to ensure only authorized users have access to data, supports a Public Key Infrastructure set-up, and provides software sealing to detect changes in the cameras' configuration settings.
As a company committed to security and sustainability, Bosch established the Green Way promise to maximize convenience and minimize costly on-site visits, effectively reducing travel and CO2 emissions. All Bosch cameras support remote configuration, management, and planning. System integrators can work remotely with customers to perform services such as changing configuration settings or installing firmware updates, ensuring systems meet the highest reliability standards. This minimizes the number of commutes, resulting in sustainable business practices that are economically viable, socially responsible, and environmentally friendly.
