New DINION IP imager 9000 HD Camera

The new DINION IP imager 9000 HD camera is designed for perimeter protection and the surveillance of critical infrastructures, such as power plants and water treatment facilities. These types of applications require robust and reliable IP video surveillance solutions that proactively guard the property’s fences day and night, regardless of weather and lighting conditions. The DINION IP imager 9000 HD has an extremely rugged design and built-in active infrared lighting to withstand harsh weather conditions and penetrate darkness. Its unique features ensure that relevant objects of interest are captured with the highest level of detail possible, regardless of harsh backlight or front light, using intelligent Auto Exposure. At the same time, intelligent Dynamic Image Noise Reduction (iDNR) maintains the lowest possible network burden by significantly reducing data bit rates and storage requirements.

Lighting conditions along perimeters change throughout the day due to variations in sunlight and the presence of other illuminated objects in the scene. The intelligent Auto Exposure feature (iAE) overcomes this challenge by automatically adjusting the camera’s settings to increase the dynamic range of the camera. As a result, iAE ensures that moving objects or those of interest are enhanced and can be easily identified. At night, the camera’s built-in active infrared lighting offers additional assistance, allowing objects up to 120 meters away to be detected even in complete darkness (0 lux). Overall, the DINION IP imager 9000 HD ensures that all relevant details are captured in highest quality thanks to this unique technology and full HD 1080p resolution.

The integrated Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA) package proactively supports security guards in focusing their attention on relevant incidents when something or someone breaches pre-defined alarm rules, which can be set by the user. IVA is also ideal for helping secure unmanned facilities, such as pipelines. The camera continuously analyses the scene and automatically triggers alarms should one or more pre-defined rules be breached. In order to minimize the risk of false alarms, up to eight different IVA alarm rules can be combined and are active at the same time to provide a robust video surveillance solution. Security guards are notified when certain situations need their attention regardless of where they are, as IVA alerts can also be sent to mobile devices. Another advantage of IVA is that it adds sense and structure to IP video material in the form of metadata, allowing users to quickly and easily find relevant evidence among hours of recorded video.

An ever-increasing need for image detail and in turn higher resolution, leads to a continuously growing amount of video data. As a result, IT infrastructures are often stretched to their maximum and system costs driven by data transmission and storage cost increase substantially. Consequently, cameras’ bit rates need to be managed and optimized to ensure a minimum of network burden and storage costs. As with all other Bosch IP cameras, the DINION IP imager 9000 HD is equipped with intelligent Dynamic Image Noise Reduction (iDNR). iDNR continuously analyses the content of the scene, dynamically adjusting the bit rate depending on the amount of movement. In average scenes, this saves up to 30 percent on bit rate and thus storage requirements, while equally reducing network strain. The camera also has the capability to temporarily store data and decide through its embedded intelligence when data streams should be sent through the network to the recording unit, checking always for free network capacities.

The entire Bosch IP portfolio is designed to seamlessly integrate with software and recording solutions from Bosch and other vendors. Third-party integration is ensured by the ONVIF conformity of all Bosch IP cameras, as well as by the Integration Partner Program (IPP), which simplifies the interoperability of video surveillance products. The IPP portal provides access to a comprehensive library of software development tools, services, and information about compatible software and products. More information is available from:
