Bosch’s New Autodome IP starlight 5100i is a Moving Camera With Built-in AI
Designed for outdoors, the Autodome IP starlight 5100i IR also offers dual illumination — integrated IR and white light.
FAIRPORT, N.Y. — Bosch introduces the new Autodome IP starlight 5100i IR moving camera with a new 1/1.8 inch sensor offering 4MP resolution and 30x optical zoom.
It offers HDR X combined with starlight technology and dual illumination — integrated IR and white light — designed to capture images that can distinguish individuals or objects for identification or proof.
Complemented with built-in artificial intelligence (AI), the camera, when idle, supports operators with object detection in areas of interest to enhance safety in city surveillance and perimeter protection applications, according to the company.
The Autodome IP starlight 5100i IR, designed for outdoors, includes an automatic rain-sensing wiper to maintain clear images during wet conditions, is weatherized with an IP66 rating, and is vandal resistant with IK10 housing.
The camera features Bosch’s built-in Essential Video Analytics to enable the device to add sense and structure with metadata to captured video data, which is the basis for converting this data into actionable insights, the company says.
Insights like the detection of moving objects help to create sterile zones, which establishes a boundary prohibiting any activity. These sterile zones enhance perimeter protection of buildings, parking lots and restricted areas, increasing overall safety. The camera’s AI can also make it possible to retrieve the right footage from hours of stored video instantly and analyze the scene by providing different statistics so an operator can act faster and more efficiently to potential threats.
Bosch says the Autodome IP starlight 5100i IR offers HDR X combined with starlight technology and dual illumination to capture usable images 24/7. The new HDR X technology has a dynamic range of up to 133 dB to eliminate motion-related artefacts in scenes with challenging lighting conditions and moving objects during the daytime.
In low-light scenes, starlight technology provides clear and relevant images with color filtering down to 0.010 lux. At night, especially in pitch dark scenes, the camera’s white light is said to provide full-color images in complete darkness up to 60m (196 feet).
The integrated IR illumination can help identify objects in monochrome up to 1,049 feet thanks to the built-in intelligent IR beam, which ensures optimum illumination of objects regardless of zoom level, Bosch says. The visible white light acts as a deterrent to intrusion, loitering and other undesirable activities in city surveillance settings.
All Bosch IP cameras are secure by design, a systematic approach centered on a built-in Trusted Platform Module (TPM), safely storing all certificates and keys needed for authentication and encryption. This method offers extensive user management to ensure only authorized users have access to data, supports a Public Key Infrastructure set-up, and provides software sealing to detect changes in the cameras’ configuration settings.
All Bosch cameras support remote configuration, management and planning. System integrators can work remotely with customers to perform services such as changing configuration settings or installing firmware updates, ensuring systems meet the highest reliability standards.
