Expanded Certification for Lenel NVR and OnGuard

We've received factory certification from Lenel Systems International for interfacing our IP cameras with the Lenel® Network Video Recorder (NVR) 7.1. Operators can view live and recorded video from Bosch IP cameras using Lenel NVR 7.1 and can control and configure the cameras from within the Lenel OnGuard® access control system. In addition, the ruggedized MIC IP 7000 HD PTZ cameras have been newly certified.
“Bosch has completed required factory testing at Lenel to validate the functionality of its interface to the Lenel NVR 7.1,” said Gidon Lissai, director of strategic alliances, Lenel. “By expanding the number of IP video devices supported by the Lenel NVR, Bosch is keeping pace with our ongoing product enhancements. We look forward to their continued involvement in the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program.”
With the certification of the MIC IP 7000 HD, you now have an option for HD imaging in difficult outdoor locations and other challenging environments. The MIC cameras combine high-quality HD imaging with an IP68/NEMA 6P-rated IP architecture. They withstand harsh conditions including rain, snow, high wind gusts, significant vibration and temperatures that range from -40 to +60 degrees Celsius.

These cameras, as well as the extensive portfolio of our IP cameras certified with Lenel NVR 7.1, feature Content Based Imaging Technology (CBIT) to tailor camera settings to scene contents. Depending on movement and varying light intensity, the camera settings are continuously and dynamically adjusted to ensure optimal exposure of objects of interest while reducing bit rate by up to 50%. As a result, storage costs and network strain are reduced significantly without compromising video quality.
“We work diligently to ensure our products are certified with the latest versions of Lenel systems. This enables customers to take advantage of new facility management features from Lenel and imaging advancements from Bosch that aid in improving overall security,” said Brad Eck, integration manager, North America, for Bosch. “Interfacing our detailed video streams with Lenel NVR gives OnGuard platform users the visual information they need to understand circumstances surrounding events in the system, which, in turn, helps them respond more accurately and efficiently.”
For a complete list of products certified for the OnGuard access control system and the Lenel NVR, visit the Integration Partner Program portal at ipp.boschsecurity.com.

DINION IP ultra 8000 MP Camera Captures Images in 4K ultra HD Resolution

With the launch of the DINION IP ultra 8000 MP camera featuring the latest 4K ultra HD technology, we're changing the game when it comes to wide-angle yet detailed surveillance. This new camera simultaneously supports a wide-angle overview and multiple focus points on a single screen to focus on details without losing the bigger picture. Its 12 MP or 4K ultra HD resolution allows any given subject to be viewed in detail unknown until now even when zoomed-in. As a result, the DINION IP ultra 8000 MP offers the decisive clarity needed for collecting relevant evidence for highly detailed and effective retrospective analysis. Now, it is easy to keep an eye on the crowd, for example in a stadium, and provide enough detail to identify individual people.

Wide-angle overview and detailed focus with perfect exposure every time
Capturing 12 MP images at 20 frames per second and 4K ultra HD images at 30 frames per second, the DINION IP ultra 8000 MP camera easily captures fast-moving objects in high detail. Multiple regions of interest (ROI) in combination with intelligent ROI tracking helps to focus on relevant details without losing the bigger picture, while enabling tracking of objects of interest in the wide-angle scene. Possible disturbances caused by changing front or backlight are eliminated by our unique built-in intelligence. The intelligent Auto Exposure (IAE) technology dynamically adjusts the exposure of the camera to automatically adapt to changing light conditions, providing perfect exposure of objects of interest every time of day. The IAE technology also contributes to the outstanding dynamic range of the camera which boasts a massive 92+16 dB, totaling 108 dB, for the 4K ultra HD mode.

Detailed and effective retrospective analysis
Another differentiating feature of the DINION IP ultra 8000 MP is built-in Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA). The camera’s ability to capture images in 12 MP or 4K ultra HD resolution combined with IVA offers an ideal solution for highly detailed and effective retrospective analysis. IVA helps to focus on relevant situations by alerting you when needed, or automatically tracking objects of interest. It also adds sense and structure to video data by adding metadata already in the camera. This allows the quick retrieval of relevant images from hours of stored video. Metadata, together with the highly detailed images, make the difference when collecting irrefutable forensic evidence or when optimizing business processes based on, for example, people counting or crowd density information.

Lower storage costs and network strain
To reduce storage costs and network strain the camera features Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction (IDNR). When there is little or no movement in the scene, less bitrate is required. Therefore, IDNR actively analyses the scene distinguishing between relevant information, such as moving objects and image noise artifacts. The degree of noise reduction is adjusted accordingly so that important objects are captured and image noise artifacts suppressed, optimizing the camera’s bitrate. Thus, IDNR saves up to 50% on bitrate and hence storage and network strain without compromising video quality. Local storage on the camera enhances system reliability by compensating for short network outages, ensuring that video data is continuously available in systems with Video Recording Manager technology without breaks.

Bosch IP standard-definition and high-definition cameras, encoders and analytics work seamlessly with a wide range of security software and recording solutions from Bosch and many other industry providers. This is backed by ONVIF conformance (Open Network Video Interface Forum) and the Integration Partner Program (IPP), which gives developers immediate access to software development tools to easily integrate Bosch products with third-party systems. Further details of the Bosch Integration Partner Program are available at ipp.boschsecurity.com.
