Bosch announced the launch of their new fixed dome camera, FLEXIDOME IP starlight 8000i that is touted to be a game-changer as it saves time in pre-configuration, installation and wireless remote commissioning by up to 75 percent.
The FLEXIDOME IP starlight 8000i delivers clear advantage to building security and facilities management. The cameras also enable detailed image capture in challenging light conditions, and data analysis for improved security and delivering business insights.
The FLEXIDOME’s product concept enables set-up in only three convenient steps: installing the mounting bracket, connecting the cables, and attaching the camera module. The innovative remote wireless configuration and commissioning functionality enables installers to work even smarter. Currently when commissioning, installers have to repeatedly climb up and down ladders, or hire lift equipment to reach cameras at high levels. With this camera, commissioning can be done completely wirelessly.
A wireless contactable tablet or smartphone with the Bosch Project Assistant app can be used to adjust the pan, tilt, roll and zoom (PTRZ) in order to set the required field of view without touching the camera or lens. Should any adjustments be required post-installation, e.g. for new store layouts or altered high-risk zones, these can also be carried out remotely after a secure release process to save time, effort and resources.
The FLEXIDOME IP starlight 8000i cameras also feature built-in Intelligent Video Analytics with Camera Trainer functionality. It is the next step in the development of video analytics and introduces “machine learning” to Bosch cameras. The Camera Trainer enables system integrators to customize Bosch built-in video analytics to detect objects or situations that matter most to their customers. With Camera Trainer, the video cameras can be taught to recognize and detect stationary objects or certain situations instead of being triggered by motion alone.
Bosch’s starlight technology is built-in as a standard resulting in higher resolutions and frame rates, better dynamic range and light sensitivity. All FLEXIDOME IP starlight 8000i models feature HD 1080p, 6 megapixel, and the 4K ultra HD resolution to provide exceptional detail – even in low-light situations. Fast-moving objects are easily captured with frame rates of up to 60fps, while High Dynamic Ranges of up to 134 dB compensate for dark and bright spots in the scene.
Complemented by a water resistance of IP66, high quality, dual-layer coating for added protection against corrosion, vandal resistance of IK10+, and an operating temperature range of -50 to +60 degrees Celsius, the new, robust FLEXIDOME IP starlight 8000i range is suitable for indoor and outdoor applications.
