Exceptional low-light performance
The latest sensor technology combined with the sophisticated noise suppression results in an exceptional sensitivity in color. The low-light performance is so good that the camera continues to provide excellent color performance even with a minimum of ambient light.
High dynamic range
The dynamic range of the camera is outstanding and is obvious in real-world performance comparisons. In extended dynamic range mode, the camera uses an electronic shutter to capture four images with different exposure time and reproduce a high-contrast frame. The result is that you can view details in both the bright areas (highlights) and the dark areas (shadows) of a scene at the same time. You can easily distinguish objects and features (for example, faces) with bright backlight.
H.265 high-efficiency video encoding
The camera is designed on the most efficient and powerful H.264 and H.265/HEVC encoding platform. The camera is capable of delivering high-quality and high-resolution video with very low network load. With a doubling of encoding efficiency, H.265 is the new compression standard of choice for IP video surveillance systems.
Snap to zoom
Drawing a box in the image will trigger the camera to zoom to the correct position.
Intelligent Video Analytics on the edge
With built-in video content analysis (VCA), the camera reinforces the Intelligence-at-the-Edge concept where edge devices become increasingly intelligent.
The camera comes with the state-of-the-art VCA method by Bosch, Intelligent Video Analytics, that reliably detects, and analyzes moving objects while suppressing unwanted alarms from spurious sources in the image.
With this method, the camera is able to detect idle and removed objects as well as loitering, multiple line crossing, and trajectories. This method also supports BEV (Bird's Eye View) People counting.
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.
The camera utilizes the built-in Intelligent Video Analytics to follow an individual or an object continuously.
When Intelligent Video Analytics detects objects while the camera is in a stationary position, the camera activates the Intelligent Tracking feature. This feature controls the pan/tilt/zoom actions of the camera to track the objects and keep them in view in the scene. The new Intelligent Tracking is based on robust flow detection algorithms which can reliably track moving objects even under challenging scenes.
