Bosch automates target tracking for AutoDome 800 Series HD PTZ Cameras

Bosch Security Systems announces firmware version 5.52 for the AutoDome 800 Series HD Pan-Tilt-Zoom Cameras, which adds the new Intelligent Tracking feature to the two megapixel (2 MP) dome. Intelligent Tracking uses AutoDome’s built-in Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA) to constantly monitor scenes for motion and automatically track objects moving within the camera range.

Customers can use IVA from Bosch to stipulate conditions that will instantly activate tracking - such as a vehicle moving through an area in a specific direction. Operators can also trigger tracking of objects by clicking on a moving target within live video to prompt the camera to keep it in the scene with pan, tilt, and zoom actions. The camera will resume tracking a target after it passes behind a privacy mask or if it is temporarily concealed by a stationary object. AutoDome continuously tracks the target when it reappears or if motion is de-tected along the same trajectory.

Combining Intelligent Tracking with the greater pixel density and 20x zoom delivered by the 2 MP / 1080p HD cameras ensures targets’ activities are not missed and important identifying characteristics - such as facial characteristics and license plate numbers - are captured, even from great distances. As a result, AutoDome 800 Series HD PTZ Cameras equipped with Intelligent Tracking are a major asset to overall surveillance, supporting security person-nel with a powerful automated monitoring system.

In addition to AutoDome 800 Series HD Cameras, Intelligent Tracking is featured on AutoDome 700 Series IP Cameras - giving customers who require automated tracking the option to choose standard definition or megapixel surveillance.
