Bosch Security Systems Inc. has introduced a durable pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) IP camera for indoor and outdoor applications. Designed to bridge the gap between fixed minidomes and traditional PTZ cameras, this unique IP camera provides customers with advanced features not found in other compact PTZ domes.

Ideal for discreet surveillance applications in large retail stores, banks, schools and commercial office buildings, the AutoDome Easy II IP is less than half the size of traditional PTZ dome cameras.

To lower bandwidth consumption and storage costs, the new camera uses H.264 compression for DVD-quality video with reduced bit rates. The AutoDome Easy II IP can generate two independent H.264 streams with up to 4CIF resolution and one JPEG stream simultaneously. Tri-streaming allows the camera to produce high-quality images for live viewing and recording while concurrently sending JPEG images to a remote server or device. Built-in iSCSI support also enables the camera to stream video directly to a network-attached iSCSI RAID array for storage.

The powerful AutoDome Easy II IP features 360-degree high-speed continuous rotation along with variable pan and tilt speeds.

Optional Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA) enables the AutoDome Easy II IP to process video signals and automatically alert operators to potential security risks. IVA allows the AutoDome Easy II IP camera to autonomously detect suspicious behaviour, including loitering, idle objects, object removal and line crossing. With this intelligence at the edge, customers have the ability to only transmit video of IVA alarms over their network to reduce bandwidth requirements and improve operator response times.
