Bosch's AutoDome modular camera system is a revolutionary new concept in dome cameras. More than just a series of cameras, it's a dome platform built around a system of intelligent, interchangeable modules that allow you to update camera functionality quickly and costeffectively. Using common components lets you install a basic camera system today and migrate to a more advanced version tomorrow - without having to replace the entire dome, thus protecting your initial investment.

Interchangeable modules:

The entire AutoDome system is based on five interchangeable modules: the CPU, camera, housing, communications, and power supply. Simply swap one of AutoDome's interchangeable modules and quickly upgrade from analog to IP, color to day/night, or add motion detection, image stabilization, and AutoTrack. Never before have you had the ability to adapt a security system to your changing needs this quickly or inexpensively. By using the same housing components, all installations have a consistent look, and observers have no idea which type of camera (if any) is watching over them. This unique, modular design also gives you the flexibility to move cameras between different housings when special coverage is needed, or as site plan requirements change. For example, an 18x PTZ camera over a specific area could easily be "hot-swapped" to a 26x or 36x day/night without removing the power. AutoDome's Ethernet communications module allows you to add IP functionality while maintaining connectivity to existing analog inputs and outputs.

500i Series highlights:

AutoDome 500i Series adds real intelligence to your video surveillance applications. Equipped with AutoTrack II the latest version of Bosch's award-winning motion tracking software, built-in image stabilization, motion detection, and a sophisticated alarm handling "rules" engine, the AutoDome 500i Series incorporates advanced, intelligent video features unmatched by any other camera system. The AutoDome 500i Series supports a variety of standard and optional video and data transmission methods, including Bilinx (over coax and UTP), fiber, and even TCP/ IP over Ethernet. Remote control, configuration, and firmware updates can also be performed over these cables, offering you unparalleled control of your cameras. Cable compensation provides extended coaxial and UTP distance runs while preventing the image quality degradation caused by signal losses from long cable lengths. The optional IP Communications Module has hybrid functionality to protect your current analog technology investment while providing a clear and stable migration path to fully digital, IP-based solutions. This allows you to move to IP video at your own pace - all at once or one camera at a time. And since all AutoDome modules are completely interchangeable, there is no need to replace expensive components (e.g., cameras) or labor-intensive components (e.g., mounts and housings).


PTZ day/night cameras Image control and quality are integral aspects of any PTZ dome system, and the AutoDome delivers. The 500i Series is available with a choice of 18x, 26x, and the industryleading 36x optical zoom lens, and all 500i Series systems offer a full 12x digital zoom. The 18x and 26x cameras provide 470 TVL (NTSC) or 480 TVL (PAL), and the 36x camera provides a full 540 TVL of horizontal resolution for outstanding clarity and image detail. The 36x camera also incorporates technology that dramatically improves the dynamic range by 128 times. Also known as WDR (widedynamic range), it results in clear image reproduction in extreme high-contrast environments. The AutoScaling (proportional zoom) and AutoPivot (automatically rotates and flips the camera) features ensure optimal control. Day/night capabilities and outstanding sensitivity make 500i Series cameras exceptional performers in all lighting conditions. In low light, these cameras automatically switch from color to monochrome by removing the IR filter to boost the infrared illumination sensitivity, while maintaining superior image quality. For operation in the darkest conditions, the SensUp control feature automatically reduces the shutter speed to as little as one second. This increases sensitivity by more than 50 times. With super-quick, 360 per-second pan and tilt speeds, the AutoDome 500i Series outperforms other domes in its class. The 500i Series supports 99 pre-positions and two styles of Guard Tours: Preset and Record/Playback. The preset tour has capability for up to 99 pre-positions with a configurable dwell time between pre-positions, and can be customized as to the order and frequency each preset is visited. AutoDome 500i Series also provides support for two recorded tours, which have a combined duration of 15 minutes of movements. These are recorded macros of an operator's movements, including pan, tilt, and zoom activities, and can be played back in a continuous manner. Supported menu languages include: English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, and Polish.

Video motion detection (VMD):

With AutoDome, you can create a "region of interest" within a preset position where motion is to be detected. The AutoDome 500i Series supports a total of 10 individual regions of interest (one per pre-position). VMD also takes advantage of virtual masking to ignore areas of unwanted motion.
