Details make the difference: 4K Ultra HD Resolution
Views: 22

Delivering ultra high definition (UHD) images in controlled settings is simple, yet the typical surveillance application is challenged by moving objects, variable lighting conditions and bandwidth limitations for transmitting video. Bosch makes 4K ultra HD imaging relevant to the security market with the introduction of its first ultra HD camera, which delivers clear images even when motion and challenging lighting pervade the scene, and keeps bit rates, and therefore storage requirements, to a minimum.

This next-generation imaging technology meets the ever-increasing demands for higher resolutions to enhance safety and security through better identification during live viewing and in retrospective analysis. At four times the resolution of full HD (1080p), 4K ultra HD provides a tremendous advantage in detail capture with crisp, vivid images even when zoomed in digitally. 4K ultra HD is perfect for tracking people, capturing facial characteristics and numbers, and for large area surveillance.

The DINION IP ultra 8000 MP delivers 3,840 horizontal and 2,160 vertical pixels at up to 30 frames per second for smooth motion — the highest performance available in the industry today.

Highest quality IP video at the lowest cost
High sensitivity enables the camera to work with a minimum of ambient light. This combined with unique Content Based Imaging Technology (CBIT) for crisp images in all lighting conditions. Both dark and bright spots in the same scene are managed by intelligent Auto Exposure (iAE), which improves the contrast of important objects for optimal identification regardless of light intensity.
Ultra HD resolution is delivered with the lowest bit rates and storage costs. The camera uses intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction (iDNR) to analyze the contents of a scene and reduce noise artifacts accordingly. It reduces bit rates when no motion is present and increases bit rates to capture maximum detail when an important object is detected. Low-noise images and efficient compression provide clear video while reducing bit rate and hence storage requirements by up to 50 per cent.

Increased awareness
Focus attention on a particular area without losing the broader overview for easy management of video information. Regions of interest allow zooming in on certain details of the full image. Close-up images (regions of interest) are transmitted in a separate, stream so both overview and detail can be viewed at the same time.

Maximum flexibility
The DINION IP ultra 8000 MP will be integrated in several third-party video management software platforms. This is backed by both our ONVIF conformity as well as our Integration Partner Program. And, even if ultra HD streaming is not yet supported by your video management software, the video streams of the new DINION IP ultra 8000 MP can be easily tailored to the resolution supported.
