Bosch adds analytics to IP cameras
Bosch is upgrading its IP cameras with in-built video analytics in a bid to use metadata to create an intelligent video security system.
All cameras, starting with the IP 4000 series, will feature a full suite of 15 of the company’s new Essential Video Analytics, beginning with the Dinion IP starlight 6000 fixed box and Flexidome IP starlight 6000 fixed dome cameras. All top of the line IP 7000 and IP 8000 starlight cameras will come equipped with Bosch’s Intelligent Video Analytics.
Data streamed can include all image data, or the metadata alone, depending on the specific application requirements.
Bosch is targeting small and medium businesses, large retail stores, commercial buildings and warehouses with Essential Video Analytics. This suite of video analytics delivers 15 different video analytics algorithms that can be used for smart movement detection as well as business analytics.
Cameras equipped with Bosch’s Intelligent Video Analytics are designed for mission critical applications such as perimeter protection for airports and critical infrastructures, ship tracking and traffic monitoring. The package has 17 different video analytics algorithms and can differentiate between genuine security events and known false triggers such as challenging environments where snow, wind, rain, water reflections and distance could make images even more difficult to interpret.
