The MIC IP 7000 HD camera family from Bosch Security Systems comprises ruggedized pan/tilt/zoom cameras “for reliable surveillance in the most difficult outdoor locations and other challenging environments,” the company says, “combining high-quality HD imaging with an IP68/NEMPA 6P-rated IP architecture.” Bosch adds that the cameras are up the task of environments like roads or highways, transportation facilities, city surveillance and critical infrastructure sites; the cameras withstand temperatures from -60 to +60 degrees Celsius.

The company points specifically to the MIC IP starlight 7000 HD camera as an example of the capabilities within the product line, saying it “delivers HD video images in extreme low light situations and captures moving objects in 720p resolution at up to 60 frames per second. It delivers video images where others fail, even down to 0.01 lux. Clear HD images are captured in color down to 0.05 lux, when others switch to monochrome, to reveal accurate color details that support significantly in security event identification.”

Bosch also heralds the MIC IP dynamic 7000 HD, explaining this camera “offers 1080p resolution and captures multiple exposures of the same scene to provide maximum detail in areas with both bright and dark lighting conditions. The wide dynamic range and intelligent backlight compensation ensure that moving objects or specific objects of interest are enhanced and can be easily identified in scenes with simultaneously bright and dark areas, which typically challenge standard cameras.”

Both cameras also feature “intelligent de-fog technology,” the company explains, “to dynamically adjust camera contrast settings to deliver the best quality in scenes affected by fog, smog, mist or other low-contrast scenes. Detection of objects of interest in complete darkness is ensured by the optional MIC illuminators,” Bosch further explains. “These illuminators consist of both IR and white light LEDs, and operators can switch between the two light sources with a single click. This enables detection of objects up to a distance of 175 meters.”

Bosch also lists the following attributes of the products in its MIC IP 7000 HD family: intelligent video analysis, 24/7 remote access and camera control, reduced storage cost and network strain, dependable operation and easy installation.
