Built-in video analytics enable Bosch Autodome cameras to generate metadata to add sense and structure to the video footage, instead of just capturing and storing video images. In addition to detecting objects, the cameras can deliver associated data like size, speed, shape, direction, and colour and can reportedly automatically distinguish between object types such as person, car, bike, motorcycle or truck. The analytics can be configured to recognise changes in speed (running), shape (crouching) or aspect ratio (falling).
The Autodome IP 4000i is designed for indoor use while for indoor and outdoor applications with a larger surveillance area, there is the Autodome IP 5000i. With its 30x optical zoom, 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second video, fast-moving objects can be identified at up to 190 metres during daytime. For larger distances and complete darkness, there is the Autodome IP 5000i IR. It performs identically to the Autodome IP 5000i during daytime, and at night identifies objects at up to 150 metres.
