Polar Bear Cub Stars at Nuremberg Zoo With Bosch System


A video transmission and recording system by Bosch Security Systems Inc. is being used at the Nuremberg Zoo to transmit real-time images of Flocke, a four-month old polar bear cub, to a pair of 46-inch screens.

One screen is positioned outside the 3,900 square feet, open-air polar bear enclosure to entertain visitors waiting see the fluffy white cub. The second screen has been incorporated into the zoo’s restaurant and beer garden. The images are transmitted to the screen via a video transmission path installed by Bosch.

Two Bosch AutoDome pan/tilt/zoom (p/t/z) cameras with day-night changeover ensure image quality, while the product’s AutoTrack feature automatically follow the cub’s every move.

Even during periods when Flocke is asleep, visitors can still see the polar bear in action thanks to a Bosch DiBos DVR; images of Flocke are transmitted on the screens during times when the cub is resting.
