Bosch AUTODOME 7000 IP 36X

  • Day/night IP camera with 28x or 36x optical zoom (12x digital zoom), Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), and Sodium Vapor White Balance mode that restores objects to their original color
  • New Intelligent Tracking and alarm rules engine with on-board Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA)
  • Enhanced system flexibility with dual recording options (iSCSI, SD card)
  • Fully configurable quad streaming with individually configurable SD streams, based on Bosch’s new Common Product Platform (CPP4)
  • Easy and intuitive installation with multiple preconfigured user modes that allow users to select the camera configuration that is ideal for their applications

The AUTODOME 7000 IP is an easy to install, highspeed PTZ dome camera, in a field-proven housing suitable for indoor or outdoor installation, that delivers unmatched picture quality and network performance day and night.
The camera provides complete network-based control of all dome functionality including pan/tilt/zoom operation, presets, tours and alarms as well as webbased configuration of all dome settings. It also provides direct network video streaming using H.264 compression / bandwidth throttling to efficiently manage bandwidth and storage requirements while delivering outstanding image quality.

Fiber Compatibility

Optical Fiber Compatibility, MMF 50/125 μm MMF. For 50/125 μm fiber, subtract 4 dB from the specified optical budget value. Must meet or exceed fiber standard ITU-T G.651.
Optical Fiber Compatibility, SMF 8–10/125 μm SMF. Must meet or exceed fiber standard ITU-T G.652.
Optical Distance Specifications Specified transmission distances are limited to the optical loss of the fiber and any additional loss introduced by connectors, splices, and patch panels. The modules are designed to operate over the entire optical loss budget range, so they do not require a minimum loss in order to operate.
