Gunshot detection: capture the shooter on camera

Gunshot detection: capture the shooter on camera
As a crime fighting professional, you know the immense value of IP video security surveillance.
As a crime fighting professional, you know the immense value of IP video security surveillance. It not only gathers essential evidence to help solve crimes, it also enables the anticipation of certain security issues, before they become a problem. But even with a large number of IP video cameras, you are not always guaranteed of capturing a good view of the perpetrator.

In a metropolitan area, whenever a gun is fired, within less than one second of the shooter pulling the trigger, law enforcement officers need to spot the shooter as soon as the shot is fired. They need to assess the situation, determine the immediate risks, and take immediate action against the active shooter.

Safety Dynamics has integrated the Bosch AUTODOME IP 7000 HD and MIC IP 7000 HD PTZ camera families with its SENTRI Gunshot Detection and Localization platform to address threats presented by active shooter events on critical infrastructure. The SENTRI system recognizes gunshots and explosions and then sends precise position details to a Bosch PTZ camera, which zooms in directly on the incident. The camera captures the shooter and the surrounding environment.

High quality images in all weather conditions
The SENTRI Gunshot Detection System integrates perfectly with our all-weather Bosch AUTODOME IP and MIC IP 7000 series PTZ cameras. The MIC IP 7000 has an extremely rugged construction and has an ingress protection rating of IP68. They are packed with the latest technology to ensure you get detailed images even in fog, rain, and high contrast scenes with challenging lighting conditions. Take a look at how you benefit:
  • Intelligent autotracking: Gunshots and other events can trigger autotracking functionality to follow a target. In an uncrowded scene, the shooter can be tracked automatically.
  • Image stabilization: Heavy vehicles or a passing train can cause vibration and make the camera shake. The Image Stabilization algorithm detects continuous vibration and dynamically corrects the shaky video in both vertical and horizontal axes. The result is a stable image on the monitor – with no reduction in camera sensitivity.
  • Intelligent defog: Also in a foggy environment, you should be able to capture relevant images. Bosch cameras identify the darkest and lightest parts of the image, which in foggy conditions are different shades of gray. They then set the darkest gray to black and the lightest gray to white, to greatly increase the contrast. They then adjust each of the RGB colors to improve color saturation and overall image quality.

AUTODOME IP 7000 HD and MIC IP 7000 HD PTZ cameras offer starlight technology to deliver high definition video images in extreme low light situations, with wide dynamic range for maximum detail in areas in extreme challenging lighting conditions. The high definition video images, image acquisition speed, detection speed, and accuracy of localization PTZ camera deliver to law enforcement actionable intelligence that speeds up their response time in active shooter scenarios.
