How Bosch makes video surveillance more relevant

How Bosch makes video surveillance more relevant
Industry today demand far more detail from their video surveillance footage than ever before. Higher resolutions, higher frame rates, better light sensitivity and excellent dynamic ranges are all matter when it comes to capturing images that can distinguish individuals or objects for irrefutable evidence.
Industry today demand far more detail from their video surveillance footage than ever before. Higher resolutions, higher frame rates, better light sensitivity and excellent dynamic ranges are all matter when it comes to capturing images that can distinguish individuals or objects for irrefutable evidence.

A paradigm shift: Relevant data instead of big data
The growing demand for more detail and the increasing number of networked cameras that drives the video surveillance industry into the era of big data. Not only does the amount of data surge, keeping an eye on the relevant data for long periods pushes concentration to the limit – 90% of the activity can be missed after 20 minutes on screen.

The security operators increasingly rely on video content analysis software to automatically detect threats, register security breaches and monitor critical infrastructure – thereby shifting the focus on relevant data. The Video Content Analysis (VCA) software segment is expected to reach $1,303.8 million by 2019 (IHS).

In response, Bosch makes a long-term commitment to relevant data. Known as a pioneer of advanced camera technologies – including light-sensitive (low light) starlight cameras, 4K ultra HD technology and dynamic ranges up to 120 dB – Bosch will continue to deliver the resolution, light sensitivity, frame rate, dynamic range and form factors that suit the customer’s need.

Video analytics at the edge as standard feature
Starting from June 2016, Bosch will equip all its IP 4000 up to the new DINION IP starlight 6000 fixed box cameras and FLEXIDOME IP starlight 6000 dome cameras with a full suite of video analytics algorithms at the edge: Essential Video Analytics as a standard feature over the next 12 months.

While, the new DINION IP starlight 7000 and FLEXIDOME IP starlight 7000 up to IP 9000 cameras will feature on-board the Intelligent Video Analytics as standard. Intelligient Video Analytics is specifically tailored for mission critical applications that delivers the highest level of accuracy.

These intelligent analysis features are supported by the starlight portfolio's outstanding light sensitivity: The latest generation delivers hi-definition color images at 0.00825 lux, where other cameras switch to monochrome, and monochrome images at 0.00275 lux, where other cameras reach their limit.

Essential video analytics and intelligent video analytics
Two types of Bosch video analytics at the edge that user can choose: Essential Video Analytics and Intelligent Video Analytics.
a) Essential Video Analytics
Essential Video Analytics, provided on the DINION IP starlight 6000 fixed box and FLEXIDOME IP starlight 6000 fixed dome cameras as standard. Essential Video Analytics can be used for advanced intrusion detection, as well as enforcing health and safety regulations such as parking in a restricted area or a blocked emergency exit. It also possesses business analytics capabilities for retail environments, such as people counting and crowd detection.

b) Intelligent video analytics
Intelligent Video Analytics delivers all the capabilities of the Essential Video Analytics, plus the required level of accuracy for mission-critical applications such as perimeter protection for airports and critical infrastructures or traffic monitoring. What makes Intelligent Video Analytics stand out is its capability filters out false triggers caused by challenging weather conditions such as rain, snow, water reflections, substantial shaking of the camera and moving trees, thereby minimizing costly false positives. Trusted by high-level security operations across the world

Both Essential Video Analytics and Intelligent Video Analytics share the same user interfaces and operating environments: Intuitive menus and workflows let users specify exactly what event – or combination of events – will trigger an alarm. Commonly used alarm triggers, programmed via pre-set rules templates, include movement and behavior patterns, as well as objects left in the vicinity, cars blocking exits or irregular crowd activity.

Actionable data is not only key in real time, but also after the fact: By applying metadata and tags to recorded video, Bosch Video Analytics at the edge provides targeted access to video data as part of investigations for evidence, digital forensics or identification of suspects.

Meanwhile, non-security applications also benefit from actionable data obtained through video analytics, including retail statistics (occupation, the flow of people, number of people) and park management.

Outlook
Considering the continuous proliferation of cameras and the rising demand for more detail, Bosch stays focused on advancing video surveillance in the era of Big Data. The next level in 24/7 video surveillance technology is coming soon: In June 2016, the new DINION IP starlight 6000 cameras arrive factory-loaded with Essential Video Analytics capabilities. Launching at the same time, the DINION IP starlight 7000 and FLEXIDOME IP starlight 7000 cameras will come equipped with the latest Intelligent Video Analytics. Meanwhile the DINION IP starlight 8000 MP, also featuring the latest IVA, is already installed at sites across the world. At the end of 2016, all Bosch camera series IP 4000 or later will come with analytics at the edge pre-loaded at the factory - at no extra price to the customer, letting customers enjoy state-of-the-art video surveillance that keeps getting more evolved as technology progresses.
