Bosch 1.3MP 30m IR IP bullet 720p IP66 AVF SMB PKG Camera
The 720p infrared bullet from Bosch is a professional surveillance camera that provides high-quality HDimages for demanding security and surveillance network requirements.
This robust bullet camera is a true day/night camera offering excellent performance day or night. The built- in infrared LEDs provides quality night time monitoring with 30 m (98 ft) viewing distance in darkness.
Outdoor bullet camera with automatic varifocal lens. The robust aluminum housing provides high installation flexibility. The camera resists both water and dust ingress in tough environments and is rated to IP66 standards. The 2.7 to 12 mm automatic varifocal lens allows you to choose the coverage area remotely. The automatic zoom/focus lens wizard makes it easy for an installer to accurately zoom and focus the camera for both day and night operation. The wizard is activated from the PC or from the on-board camera push button making it easy to choose the workflow that suits best
The AVF (Automatic Varifocal) feature means that the zoom can be changed without opening the camera.
The automatic motorized zoom/focus adjustment with 1:1 pixel mapping ensures the camera is always accurately focused.
Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction reduces bandwidth and storage requirements
The camera uses Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction which actively analyzes the contents of a scene and reduces noise artifacts accordingly.
The low-noise image and the efficient H.264 compression technology provide clear images while reducing bandwidth and storage by up to 50% compared to other H.264 cameras. This results in
reduced-bandwidth streams that still retain a high image quality and smooth motion. The camera
provides the most usable image possible by cleverly optimizing the detail-to-bandwidth ratio.
Area-based encoding is another feature which reduces bandwidth. Compression parameters for up to eight user-definable regions can be set. This allows uninteresting regions to be highly compressed, leaving
more bandwidth for important parts of the scene.
Bitrate optimized profile
The average typical optimized bandwidth in kbits/s for various image rates is shown in the table:
fps – 720p – 480p
30 – 1200 – 600
15 – 855 – 478
12 – 877 – 438
5 – 568 – 284
2 – 245 – 122
The innovative multi-streaming feature delivers various H.264 streams together with an M‑JPEG stream. These streams facilitate bandwidth-efficient viewing and recording as well as integration with third-party video management systems.
Depending on the resolution and frame rate selected for the first stream, the second stream provides a copy of the first stream or a lower resolution stream.
The third stream uses the I-frames of the first stream for recording; the fourth stream shows a JPEG image at a maximum of 10 Mbit/s.
Regions of interest and E-PTZ
Regions of Interest (ROI) can be user defined. The remote E-PTZ (Electronic Pan, Tilt and Zoom) controls
allow you to select specific areas of the parent image. These regions produce separate streams for remote
viewing and recording. These streams, together with the main stream, allow the operator to separately
monitor the most interesting part of a scene while still retaining situational awareness.
Two-way audio and audio alarm
Two-way audio allows the operator to communicate with visitors or intruders via an external audio line
input and output. Audio detection can be used to generate an alarm if needed.
Tamper and motion detection
A wide range of configuration options is available for alarms signaling camera tampering. A built-in algorithm for detecting movement in the video can also be used for alarm signaling.
Recording management can be controlled by the Bosch Video Recording Manager (VRM) or the camera
can use iSCSI targets directly without any recording software.
The MicroSD card slot supports up to 2 TB of storage capacity. A microSD card can be used for local alarm recording. Pre-alarm recording in RAM reduces recording bandwidth on the network, or — if microSD card recording is used — extends the effective life of
the storage medium.
The camera supports time-based or alarm-based JPEG posting to four different accounts. These accounts can address FTP servers or cloud-based storage facilities (for example, Dropbox). Video clips or JPEG images can also be exported to these accounts. Alarms can be set up to trigger an e-mail or SMS
notification so you are always aware of abnormal events.
Power for the camera can be supplied via a Power- over-Ethernet compliant network cable connection.
With this configuration, only a single cable connection is required to view, power, and control the camera.
Using PoE makes installation easier and more cost- effective, as cameras do not require a local power
The camera can also be supplied with power from 24 VAC or +12 VDC SELV class 2 power supplies.
For trouble-free network cabling, the camera supports Auto-MDIX which allows the use of straight or cross-over cables.
True day/night switching
The camera incorporates mechanical filter technology for vivid daytime color and exceptional night-time
imaging while maintaining sharp focus under all lighting conditions.
An analog video output enables the camera to operate in hybrid mode. This mode provides simultaneous high-resolution HD video streaming and an analog video output via an SMB connector. The hybrid functionality offers an easy migration path from legacy CCTV to a modern IP-based system.
Password protection with three levels and 802.1x authentication is supported. To secure Web browser
access, use HTTPS with a SSL certificate stored in the camera.
Complete viewing software
There are many ways to access the camera’s features: using a web browser, with the Bosch Video
Management System, with the free-of-charge Bosch Video Client or Video Security Client, with the
video security mobile app, or via third-party software.
Video security App
The Bosch video security mobile App has been developed to enable Anywhere access to HD surveillance images allowing you to view live images from any location. The App is designed to give you complete control of all your cameras, from panning and tilting to zoom and focus functions. It’s like taking your control room with you.
This App, together with the separately available Bosch transcoder, will allow you to fully utilize our dynamic
transcoding features so you can play back images even over low-bandwidth connections.
The camera conforms to the ONVIF Profile S specification. Compliance with this standard guarantees interoperability between network video products regardless of manufacturer.
