Intelligent Tracking Technology

In video surveillance, moving objects are usually the most significant objects of interest. Intelligent Tracking (iTracking) automatically tracks moving objects based on predefined alarm rules or a simple click. By intelligently distinguishing between single and multiple reference points, iTracking will provide uninterrupted tracking. Optimal capture of the object of interest is assured by dynamically adjusting the field of view. With iTracking, our focus is never to lose track of objects of interest.

DINION IP starlight 8000 MP -- Low Light 5MP Camera

Regardless of time-of-day, object of interest movement or extreme low light situations, the new 5 megapixel DINION IP starlight 8000 MP camera delivers relevant IP video images 24/7. This camera sets a new quality benchmark in round-the-clock video surveillance. Due to its outstanding and comprehensive technical specifications, this is the ultimate 24/7 camera for securing critical infrastructures, parking lots, city surveillance projects and many other applications with challenging lighting conditions.

Becoming the ultimate 24/7 camera
The DINION IP starlight 8000 MP delivers 5 megapixel details even in extreme low light situations and captures moving objects in 5 megapixel resolution at up to 30 frames per second. The latest sensor technology combined with sophisticated noise suppression results in a light sensitivity of 0.0121 lux at full 5 megapixel resolution in color and even 0.00825 lux at 1080p resolution. The DINION IP starlight 8000 MP produces full color images in the dark beyond the point where other cameras have turned to monochrome images. Where others show no image at all, it still delivers detailed monochrome images. 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. The iAE technology also contributes to the outstanding dynamic range of the camera, which boasts a massive 103+16 dB for the 1080p mode.

Intelligent Video Analysis
Another differentiating feature of the DINION IP starlight 8000 MP is built-in Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA). It 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 deliver irrefutable forensic evidence or to optimize business processes based on, for example, people counting or crowd density information. By smartly 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.

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. It allows access to camera controls, live video streams and HD images via a mobile device anytime from anywhere. Dynamic Transcoding also enables you to instantly retrieve the correct video data from hours of recorded material. The DINION IP starlight 8000 MP is supported by Dynamic Transcoding in 1080p mode in combination with either one of the DIVAR IP recording solutions or a VIDEOJET.

Lower storage costs and network strain
To reduce storage costs and network strain, the camera features intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction (iDNR). The power of this technology is that it leads to bandwidth only being used when needed. 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 further enhances network performance by compensating for short network outages, ensuring that video data is continuously available in VRM systems 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.

P&L E-Communications Integrates the DINION IP imager 9000 HD for Perimeter Monitoring

P&L E-Communications has integrated the DINION IP imager 9000 HD from with its AVT234 Reconisense Video Motion Detection (VMD) platform. A wide dynamic range sensor and integrated near-infrared illuminators enable the DINION IP imager 9000 HD to extend the AVT234 Reconisense’s range of automated target detection under both day and night time conditions.

AVT234 Video Motion Detection Software provides automatic alarms to bring up the camera view when detection of humans or vehicles occurs, enabling operators to detect, assess, and respond immediately to mitigate unwanted intrusions.
“The use of automated Video Motion Detection systems for protection of critical physical assets at electric and gas utilities – and for pipeline damage prevention – has grown rapidly as threats to the power grid increase,” explains Paul Simpson, Business Development / Physical Security System Engineering, P&L E-Communications. “The AVT234 VMD platform integrated with the DINION IP imager 9000 HD delivers consistent, accurate situational awareness via real-time alerts to security operations centers in all lighting conditions, enabling operators to react to breaches in a proactive manner.”
The 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. The imager’s extremely rugged design and built-in active infrared illumination enables it to withstand harsh weather conditions and penetrate darkness. Another unique feature is intelligent Auto Exposure. It 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 DINION IP imager 9000 HD delivers the highest quality IP video images for monitoring high risk / high consequence sites,” says Lloyd Uliana, Business Development Engineer, Bosch Security Systems, Inc. “In addition to detection-level surveillance capabilities, the camera also provides recognition-level and identification-level performance under 0 lux conditions, improving situational awareness for AVT234 VMD operators regardless of the level of incidental lighting.”
