MIC Camera on Display at World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems

At the 2014 World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems, MG Squared will demonstrate the integration of its Lowering System with the MIC IP 7000 HD high-speed PTZ cameras. MG Squared’s Lowering System is a device used frequently in intelligent transportation system (ITS) and secure perimeter installations. The device makes it even easier and safer to install and maintain pole-mounted MIC IP 7000 HD cameras in any location, regardless of height.

With a Lowering System from MG Squared, MIC camera installation and maintenance can be performed on the ground by one technician, eliminating the need for bucket trucks, cone crews or lane closures. This provides tremendous cost savings as well as a more efficient and safer work process. It also frees design engineers from previous limitations on mounting heights, since pole and camera locations are no longer determined by where or how high a bucket truck can reach. 
“The combination of MIC cameras and Lowering Systems from MG Squared delivers added flexibility for customers to maintain and service the MIC throughout its long lifespan. We expect nine years of operation from this camera, and MG Squared helps customers take full advantage of this; significantly reducing the total cost of ownership for traffic operations and transportation authorities alike,” said Zareh Megerdoonian, Business Development Manager - ITS, for Bosch. “With the release of the new MIC IP 7000 HD cameras, Bosch now delivers industry-leading HD imaging to the market with a solution that can operate in brutal environments and extreme lighting conditions, while providing the added ease of Power over Ethernet (PoE) installation.”
The new MIC IP starlight 7000 HD delivers images in extreme low light situations and captures moving objects in 720p HD resolution at up to 60 frames per second. It provides video images where others fail, even down to 0.01 lux, and captures clear images in color down to 0.05 lux – when others switch to monochrome – to reveal accurate color details that support in vehicle identification. The MIC IP dynamic 7000 HD offers 1080p resolution and captures multiple exposures of the same scene for maximum detail in areas with both bright and dark lighting conditions, such as in tunnels or under highway overpasses. Wide dynamic range and intelligent backlight compensation ensure that moving objects are enhanced and can be easily identified.

The entire MIC family of cameras provides reliable surveillance in the most difficult outdoor locations, combining high-quality HD imaging with an IP68/NEMA 6P-rated IP architecture. The cameras withstand a wide range of conditions – from -76 to +140 degrees Fahrenheit with up to 100 percent humidity, as well as rain and snow, high wind gusts and significant vibration.

Likewise, the MG Squared Lowering Device has been proven to perform in the harshest conditions in installations throughout North America, Central America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia. MG Squared believes the successful integration of its system with the MIC cameras will be an added benefit to ITS and high-security applications for years to come.

MIC IP dynamic 7000 HD on display at 2014 Power Grid Resilience Summit

At the 2014 Power Grid Resilience Summit, September 8-10 in San Francisco, Security consultancy, The Security Oracle, Inc. (TSO), will display a MIC IP dynamic 7000 HD ruggedized PTZ camera from Bosch as a part of a suite of technology that comprises its Remote Control Active Denial System (RCADS).
In June 2014, TSO presented this scalable, turnkey Non-Lethal Threat-Based Systems Approach to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and Edison Electric Institute (EEI) in Washington, DC.  “RCADS is a force-multiplying system that enables grid-connected owners and operators to effectively and affordably comply with NERC CIP 014,” says Charles Butler, CPP, CEO, TSO, Inc., and former EEI Security Committee Member. “This Threat-Based Systems Approach transforms current passive grid security into an affordable active denial physical protection system that will ‘Protect Against Attacks’ as required.”
When a threat is detected, RCADS can be used to remotely intercept and overpower an adversary from the safety of a security operations center prior to any significant damage occurring to site infrastructure. As a result, local law enforcement or security forces will have far more time to respond and successfully interdict the adversary.
“The MIC IP dynamic 7000 HD ruggedized PTZ was specifically selected due to its exceptionally quick and pin-point accurate slew-to-cue and long range visual target acquisition capabilities,” said Lloyd Uliana, Business Development Engineer for Bosch. “Its extensive use in extreme operational environments, its integration with Safety Dynamics, Inc.’s SENTRI Gunshot Detection and Localization Platform, and its pending cryptographically-secure mechanisms that meet Federal cybersecurity mandates ensure that the MIC IP dynamic 7000 HD is the ideal imaging platform for the protection of critical infrastructure in high risk environments.”

MIC Family Goes HD

The new MIC IP 7000 HD family delivers the highest quality of IP video surveillance images everywhere, even in areas with extreme conditions like roads or highways, transportation facilities, city surveillance and critical infrastructure sites. The cameras combine high-quality HD imaging with an IP68/NEMA 6P-rated IP architecture for the ability to withstand a wide range of harsh conditions – from -60 to +60 degrees Celsius with up to 100 percent humidity, as well as rain and snow, high wind gusts and significant vibration.

The new MIC IP starlight 7000 HD camera delivers HD video images in extreme low light situations and captures moving objects in 720p resolution at up to 60 frames per second. It delivers video images where others fail, even down to 0.01 lux. Clear HD images are captured in color down to 0.05 lux – when others switch to monochrome – to reveal accurate color details that support in security event identification. Its ability to capture fast moving objects and excellent performance in extreme low light situations make the MIC IP starlight 7000 HD ideal for securing, for example, areas along highways.

The MIC IP dynamic 7000 HD offers 1080p resolution and captures multiple exposures of the same scene to provide maximum detail in areas with both bright and dark lighting conditions. The wide dynamic range and intelligent backlight compensation ensure that moving objects or specific objects of interest are enhanced and can be easily identified in scenes with simultaneously bright and dark areas, which typically challenge standard cameras.

Both cameras also feature intelligent de-fog technology to dynamically adjust camera contrast settings to deliver the best quality in scenes affected by fog, smog, mist or other low contrast scenes.

Detection of objects of interest in complete darkness is ensured by the optional MIC illuminators. These illuminators consist of both IR and white light LEDs, and you can switch between the two light sources with a single click. This enables detection of objects up to a distance of 175 meters.

Intelligent Video Analysis
Built-in Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA) helps to focus on relevant situations by alerting you when needed, or automatically tracking objects of interest. IVA also adds sense and structure to video data by adding metadata . This allows the quick retrieval of relevant images from hours of stored video. Metadata can also be used to optimize business processes based on, for example, people counting or crowd density information. By using the camera’s ability to simultaneously combine 8 of the 15 available IVA rules, complex tasks are made easy and false alarms are reduced to a minimum. Among other uses, IVA can assist in monitoring unmanned stations or pipelines where people are not expected during normal operations.

In addition, intelligent Tracking (iTracking) automatically tracks moving objects based on predefined alarm rules or a simple click. Optimal capture of the object of interest is assured by dynamically adjusting the field of view. With intelligent tracking, it becomes easier never to lose track of objects of interest.

24/7 remote access and camera control
Limited bandwidth makes it impossible to stream HD video on mobile devices whereas Dynamic Transcoding delivers both smooth live video streaming and instant access to HD (1080p) images when needed, regardless of available bandwidth. Combined with the Video Security app, you can access camera controls, live video streams and HD images via a mobile device anytime and from anywhere. The new MIC IP 7000 HD family is fully supported by Dynamic Transcoding in combination with either one of the Bosch DIVAR IP recording solutions or a Bosch VIDEOJET transcoder.

Lower storage costs and network strain
To reduce storage costs and network strain the MIC IP starlight 7000 HD and MIC IP dynamic 7000 HD cameras feature 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 artefacts. The degree of noise reduction is adjusted accordingly so that important objects are captured and image noise artefacts suppressed, optimizing the camera’s bitrates. Thus, iDNR saves up to 50% on bitrates and hence storage and network strain without compromising video quality.

Dependable operation and easy installation
Using the VIDEOJET connect 7000 with MIC and other Bosch IP cameras provides high Power over Ethernet support and added flexibility in network configuration and remote video access. Its built-in network switch supports connections to multiple IP cameras, which makes it an ideal configuration for installations along perimeters or highways. Smooth live video streaming and instant access to HD (1080p) images within limited bandwidth connections and full access and control of HD video images from anywhere at any time is made possible through its built-in transcoder, which supports the Dynamic Transcoding technology.

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 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.
