Bosch announces the introduction of a complete new lineup of intelligent cameras within its midrange portfolio.
The fixed dome (FlexiDome) and bullet (Dinion) IP 4000i, IP 5000i and IP 6000i cameras now have Essential video analytics built in as a standard (intelligent) feature, enabling the network video cameras to understand what they’re seeing, generating metadata to add sense and structure to the video footage, according to the company.
This mean that instead of simply capturing and storing video data, users can now use the metadata alongside the video footage to improve their level of security and assist in making business decisions using a wealth of statistics.
The intelligent cameras can also be used beyond security applications, such as in a business retail environment.
Bosch says the IP 4000i, IP 5000i and IP 6000i cameras can gather statistics such as the number of people entering or leaving a store, or identify patterns in customer activity in order to optimize store layouts, improve customer experiences and bolster sales.
The cameras are available in a range of resolutions, from 720p up to 5 megapixels, with frame rates up to 60 frames per second.
All IP 4000i, IP 5000i and IP 6000i cameras offer intelligent dynamic noise reduction and intelligent streaming, along with H.265 video compression
The cameras ensure backward compatibility by supporting legacy H.264 systems that do not yet support H.265.
