What challenges does this improved camera system solve?

In this panel discussion, Steve, Brad, and Rony discuss the challenges security professionals have had that can now be overcome with this new AUTODOME camera series >>

Image Stabilization
The camera incorporates a built-in, optical or electronic image stabilization (model dependent) feature which prevents pixel loss and outperforms electronic image stabilization. If it detects vibration, the camera dynamically corrects the shaky video in both the vertical and horizontal axis, resulting in exceptional image clarity and a stable field of view on the monitor.

Variable Beam Illumination

The IR models have an integrated, long-life Illuminator with a variable beam that enables viewing of objects even in total darkness, ensuring high-quality images regardless of the lighting conditions. Note: The distances and the performance depend on the environmental light conditions.

Snap to Zoom
Drawing a box in the image viewing window with the mouse will trigger the camera to zoom to the correct position.

Video Analytics while camera is moving
Outside of pre-positions and even while the PTZ camera is moving, whether on guard tours or manually, the Intelligent Video Analytics application can detect and start alarms when objects are in alarm fields. These alarm fields are defined once across all PTZ camera views. The camera can automatically trigger an alarm if any part of a field within the camera's view becomes active while on a guard tour sweeping across the monitored areas.

Accurate Positioning

Adding to the reliability of these cameras and leveraging the MIC's unique positioning system, the AUTODOME 7100i (IR) never loses track of its position, even if power is lost or the camera sustains excessive force. Built-in brushless positioning motors are highly efficient because they use less energy and offer a longer service life. The system presets are accurate to .10 degrees and maintains the intended position for pre-positions, sectors, and privacy masks.

Intelligent Tracking

When the Intelligent Video Analytics application in the camera detects objects or individuals, the camera can automatically activate the Intelligent Tracking feature, which controls the pan/tilt/zoom actions of the
camera to track objects and keep them in view. IVA Pro Intelligent Tracking, based on deep learning,
provides an AI-based version of this Intelligent Tracking feature, which automatically detects and
separates upright persons and vehicles. Robust algorithms based on artificial neural networks are
trained to ignore potential disruptions caused by vehicle headlights or shadows, extreme weather, and
sun reflections. Thus, a PTZ camera equipped with IVA Pro Intelligent Tracking can automatically follow
persons and vehicles in traffic or inner city scenes by panning, tilting, and zooming to follow an object of
interest and keep it prominently in the field of view. Watch the demonstration below and click here for more about IVA Pro Intelligent Tracking.

Intelligently monitor traffic and crowds

When monitoring traffic and crowds you want to understand traffic flow, e.g. knowing what peak times are which could lead to more unsafe situations. But also how many people are in a certain area at any given time and how people move and where they congregate.

IVA Pro Traffic and IVA Pro Intelligent Tracking (available via license) ensure you have reliable, precise detection and comprehensive data capture in congested traffic scenes.

  • Accurately classify types of vehicles (and people) with IVA Pro Traffic
  • Reliable and robust auto-tracking with IVA Pro Intelligent Tracking
  • Minimize unwanted alarms

This allows you to use real-time data to understand the flow of movement, plan for periods of peak occupancy, and take immediate action to resolve busy traffic situations to manage it more effectively and increase safety.

Using a PTZ and video analytics to obtain more details in a scene...automatically

IVA Pro Buildings and IVA Pro Perimeter come free and pre-installed on AUTODOME 7100i (IR) cameras. Based on deep learning, IVA Pro Traffic is an additional, licensed option that supports ITS applications. By achieving accuracy levels beyond 95 percent in vehicle counting, it can replace traditional and expensive-to-maintain counting methods, for example, ground loops. In addition to giving an accurate count, IVA Pro Traffic offers reliable detection and sub-classification of vehicles such as cars, bicycles, buses, motorcycles, and trucks. It can accurately detect and classify pedestrians, even in crowded scenes, to enable safety solutions for vulnerable road users. The collected data provides actionable insights for improving the efficient use of roadways and the safety of people and vehicles at intersections, highways, and tunnels. The algorithms of the IVA Pro Traffic are trained to ignore potential disturbances caused by vehicle headlights or shadows, extreme weather, sun reflections, and shaking cameras.

IVA Pro Intelligent Tracking is a new, licensed option that enables the camera to zoom in and follow a selected object automatically . The new software uses deep learning to understand more complex vehicle and pedestrian traffic scenarios and situations, such as when vehicles and pedestrians chosen to be tracked by the functionality are temporarily stopped in transit due to traffic lights, congestion, or accidents. This sophisticated analysis of the scene gives the user a higher degree of reliability that the selected object will be followed continuously, even if it does not keep moving all the time.

Video Analytics while camera is moving
Outside of pre-positions and even while the PTZ camera is moving, whether on guard tours or manually, the Intelligent Video Analytics application can detect and start alarms when objects are in alarm fields. These alarm fields are defined once across all PTZ camera views. The camera can automatically trigger an alarm if any part of a field within the camera's view becomes active while on a guard tour sweeping across the monitored areas.

See it to believe it...

In this series of demonstrations, Matt Cirnigliaro of Bosch Security and Safety Systems narrates as the AUTODOME 7100i (IR) PTZ tracks an object and ignores others in the first demonstration of IVA Pro Traffic and IVA Pro Intelligent Tracking.

Next, we step up the complexity of the evaluations and include a reaction that's commonly referred to as "slew to cue." Slew to cue in the perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) market occurs when a PTZ camera, or other movable device, is directed to a specific location by an independent sensor. To accomplish this, Matt configured several DINION 7100i IR cameras with detection fields using IVA Pro Perimeter. Then, he configured the AUTODOME 7100i (IR) PTZ to react to alerts from the DINION 7100i IR cameras, causing the AUTODOME 7100i (IR) PTZ to move to the area of the alarm for details verification and real-time situational awareness. Worth noting is that this unique Bosch camera capability does not require a server or computer to do the processing or issue commands to the PTZ camera. Everything was accomplished with camera-to-camera communication. Watch as Matt narrates the various use case demonstrations >>

NOTE: please set your YouTube settings to the highest resolution when playing the demonstration videos. We record and post them in 4K resolution so you can see the differences in resolution.

Key Moments:

In perimeter security, it is important to have access to details with excellent clarity to identify objects of interest and maintain situational awareness. Or for visual verification in real-time or forensic search. AUTODOME 7100i (IR) cameras offer exactly that thanks to high resolution imaging (up to 4K ultra HD) combined with starlight, 60 fps, High Dynamic Range and 12x / 40x zoom.

On top of that, IVA Pro Perimeter (built-in as standard) is ideal for the use of perimeter security, as it:

  • offers early detection in challenging outdoor scenes
  • can even detect crawling and rolling

On top of that, the new robust ball design eliminates optical distortion when looking above the horizon and also has an integrated closed loop design which ensures homing position is never lost. So you can rest assured that you have the highest levels of security for your assets.
