Bosch Solutions Demonstrated at Railway Systems Show

Bosch customer Communication Concepts, Inc. will be demonstrating our technology at the 2014 RSSI C&S Exhibition at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville this week. The event is designed to help railroad and rail transit communication and signal representatives stay up to date on the latest technology.

Federal mandates now require that products integrated into critical infrastructure sites achieve higher levels of protection and compliance to reduce risks and threats. In response, Communication Concepts is showing a secure solution for railway stakeholders to monitor high value and strategic asset locations. Using a secure communications framework designed by Bosch and SecureXperts, an information security firm, Communication Concepts will demonstrate how users can access video surveillance footage using strong cryptographic standards for identification, multi-factor authentication and encryption.

Darnell Washington, CEO and President of SecureXperts states, “SecureXperts is pleased to work with Bosch and leading systems integrators such as Communication Concepts in key critical infrastructure protection sectors, increasing the confidence that these systems meet new and emerging federal mandates for supply chain and endpoint security of physical security infrastructures.”

Attendees can see how access to our AUTODOME 7000 HD PTZ camera is possible using a crypto card and biometric reader – eliminating the traditional user name/password combination. This method of accessing IP cameras provides a higher level of cybersecurity, ensuring resilience against attack or breach by hackers or unauthorized users.

The company will also showcase how it is using our Intelligent Video Analysis to design customized process improvement systems for its customers. This allows railway operators to identify instances of ramp violations or other incidents at any site monitored by Bosch video surveillance cameras. By quickly locating this data in their surveillance recordings, operators can use the information to help improve the safety and efficiency of their rail yards.

To see these solutions in action, visit the Communication Concepts booth #302 at the RSSI C&S Exhibition May 20-22 - http://www.rssi.org/

Expanded Lenel Factory Certification

We've received factory certification from Lenel Systems International for the integration of more of our IP cameras with the Lenel NVR 7.0, as well as certification for additional recording solutions with the OnGuard v6.6.

This expanded certification supports viewing live and recorded video from Bosch IP cameras using Lenel NVR systems, and display of video and IVA events from Bosch recording solutions in OnGuard.

Lenel customers can now integrate VRM 3.0, which provides immediate access to video stored across multiple iSCSI disk arrays and automatic balancing of video streams to optimize storage space and improve retention times. The certification also includes support for the DIVAR IP family of recording appliances that deliver intuitive, affordable and reliable IP video storage and management.

IVA events received from these recording solutions can be displayed in the OnGuard user interface, enabling you to see video of alarms, such as the detection of perimeter breaches or loitering, along with color overlays that indicate where the alarm occurs in the scene. This provides virtual support for security personnel to ensure security risks are not missed.

With more Bosch cameras certified with the Lenel NVR, you can choose from a variety of our fixed and PTZ IP cameras. Fixed-camera models include the DINION and FLEXIDOME IP starlight 7000 HD cameras, which deliver video images in extreme low-light areas where other cameras fail; the DINION IP 4000 and IP 5000 HD cameras; and the FLEXIDOME IP 5000 family, including five-megapixel cameras for indoor and outdoor surveillance. In addition, the DINION IP imager 9000 HD and FLEXIDOME IP corner 9000 MP offer integrated infrared illumination for indoor and outdoor applications. Certified moving cameras include the new AUTODOME 7000 family of intelligent HD PTZ cameras. These cameras all feature unique technology that automatically processes video images to improve details for objects of interest, while lowering bit rates to reduce network strain and storage costs.

“This certification ensures that customers can benefit from the intelligence built into Bosch cameras and recording solutions, which provides high-quality, relevant video images at lower costs,” said Brad Eck, integration manager, North America, Bosch Security Systems. “Integrating our detailed video streams and analytics with the OnGuard software gives users better visual in-formation surrounding facility events and improved detection capabilities to enhance overall safety and security.”

The integration of our IP cameras with OnGuard and the Lenel NVR also enables you to verify system events and alarms by viewing video from Bosch devices directly in the OnGuard user interface. With the ability to see the source of an alarm using nearby Bosch cameras, security personnel gain the information they need to respond more appropriately. The integration supports the configuration of Bosch cameras and the operation of pan, tilt and zoom functions within the OnGuard system.
