25
Pelco® Protocol Mode
The Pelco Mode features Auto Baud Detection that automatically detects and adjusts the
AutoDome protocol and baud rate to match that of the controller. The AutoDome responds to
Pelco-D or Pelco-P protocol commands.
i
4.1
NOTICE! The AutoDome supports only the RS-485 protocol. It does not transmit responses
back to the controller.
Hardware Configuration
The AutoDome is configured from the factory for RS-485 operation in Pelco Protocol Mode.
1.
Connect the controller's TX terminals to the AutoDome's TxD terminals. See the
AutoDome Modular Camera System Installation Manual for complete wiring instructions.
2.
Pan or tilt the keyboard joystick to confirm that control has been established to the
AutoDome (approximately five (5) seconds).
i
NOTICE! If control is not established, ensure that the RS-232/RS-485 selector switch is
positioned to RS-485 (outward toward the LED lights). This switch is located on the bottom of
the AutoDome CPU board, under the camera head and next to the LED lights. See Figure 4.1.

Address Guidelines
–
An AutoDome with an address set to 0 responds to commands set to any address.
–
Pelco-P protocol must use addresses 1 to 32.
–
Pelco-D protocol must use addresses 1 to 254.
NOTICE! A previously configured AutoDome with an address above 32 (Pelco-P upper limit) or
i
254 (Pelco-D upper limit) can be used without readdressing the unit. However, no two (2)
addresses can be the same. For example:
Pelco-P addresses above 32 are repeated in multiples of 32 (1, 33, 65, 97 are the same).
Pelco-D addresses above 254 are repeated in multiples of 254 (1, 255, 509, 763 are the same).
4.3
Pelco Keyboard Commands
Pelco control commands are composed of a sequence of two (2) keyboard inputs with the following convention: 1) a Command Number and 2) a Function key input.
The AutoDome uses the PRESET command key to save and recall presets (pre-positions) 1
through 99.
i
4.3.1
NOTICE! To save a preset, enter the desired number and hold the PRESET key for
approximately two (2) seconds. To recall a preset, enter the desired preset number (or
command) and momentarily press and release the PRESET key.
Special Preset Commands

Advanced Features
This chapter details the advanced features of the AutoDome Modular Camera System.
7.1
Alarm Rules
The 300 and 500i Series AutoDome feature a powerful alarm rule engine. In its simplest form,
an alarm rule can is to define which input(s) activate which output(s). In its more complex
form, a rule can be programmed to take any combination of input(s) and keyboard command(s) to perform a dome function. There are numerous combinations of alarm inputs and
outputs that can be programmed into 12 alarm rules.
Following are two examples for setting up alarm rules. The first example is a basic alarm rule,
the second example is a more complex or advanced rule.
Example 1: Basic Alarm Rule
Scenario: We want a door alarm contact to:
1.
Flash an OSD message (***ALARM 1***) on the display when the alarm is triggered.
2.
Move the AutoDome camera to a saved position. (For this example Shot 7.)
3.
Transmit a Bilinx signal over the coax cable to the headend system, such as an Allegiant,
to trigger an alarm response.
The sequence to program the above alarm rule example is as follows:
1.
Define the Alarm Input(s)
a.
i
Wire the door contact to Input 1 in the AutoDome. This circuit is normally open.
NOTICE! For instruction on wiring alarm and relay connections, see the AutoDome Modular
Camera System Installation Manual.
b.
From the Inputs Setup menu, ensure that Alarm Input 1 is set to N.O. (This is the
default setting for Input 1.)
2.
3.
Define the Alarm Outputs from the Outputs Setup menu:
a.
Ensure Output 5 is set to OSD. (This is the default setting for Output 5.)
b.
Set Output 6 to Shot 7.
c.
Set Output 7 to Transmit. (a Bilinx signal to the head end)
Set up the Alarm Rule. (For this example use Rule 1.)
Select the Inputs from the Rule Setup menu:
a.
Select Rule 1.
b.
Set the first input to Alarm Input 1.
Select the outputs:
c.
Set the first output to OSD.
d.
Set the second output to Shot 7.
e.
Set the third output to Transmit.
Enable the rule:

2.
Stop the AutoPan and move the camera to a saved position (Shot 5) viewing the fence.
3.
Turn on AutoTrack.
4.
Transmit a Bilinx signal to the head end system to trigger an alarm response.
The sequence to program this alarm rule example is as follows:
1.
i
Wire and set the alarm Input(s).
a.
Wire the motion detector to Input 1. (This circuit is normally open.)
b.
Wire the gate alarm contact to Input 5. (This circuit is normally closed.)
NOTICE! For instruction on wiring alarm and relay connections, see the AutoDome Modular
Camera System Installation Manual.
From the Inputs Setup menu:
c.
Ensure Input 1 (the motion detector) is set to N.O. (This is the default setting for
Input 1.)
d.
2.
a.
3.
Ensure Input 5 (the gate contact) is set to N.C.
Set the alarm Outputs from the Outputs Setup menu:
Set Output 5 to OSD.

Configuring and Using the IP AutoDome
The VG4-200, VG4-300, and VG4-500i Series AutoDomes can be ordered with an optional IP
module that allows the AutoDome to transmit PTZ control commands and images over a TCP/
IP network. It also allows users to configure the AutoDome camera display settings, camera
operating settings, and to configure the network parameters.
The IP AutoDome incorporates a network video server in the IP module. The primary function
of the server is to encode video and control data for transmission over a TCP/IP network. With
its MPEG-4 encoding, it is ideally suited for IP communication and for remote access to digital
video recorders and multiplexers. The use of existing networks means that integration with
CCTV systems or local networks can be achieved quickly and easily. Video images from a single camera can be simultaneously received on several receivers.
8.1
Overview of Features
The IP module adds the following functionality to an AutoDome system:
Function
Description
Video encoding
The camera uses the MPEG-4 compression standard and ensures that the
data rate remains low even with high image quality and can also be
adapted to local conditions within wide limits.
Dual Streaming
Encodes dual data streams simultaneously according to two individually
customized profiles. This feature creates two (2) data streams per camera
that can serve different purposes. For example, one (1) data stream for
local recording and one (1) data stream optimized for transmission over
the Local Area Network (LAN).
Multicast
Enables simultaneous, real-time transmission to multiple receivers. The
network must implement the UDP and IGMP V2 protocols as a prerequisite for Multicasting.
Configuration
You can configure all camera settings from a Web browser on the local
network (Intranet) or on the Internet. You can also update the firmware,
load device configurations, store configuration settings, and copy these
settings from one camera to another.
Snapshots
Allows you to take and store individual video frames as JPEG images from
the Web browser interface.
Backup
You can save video images as a file on a computer’s hard drive from the
Web browser interface.
Audio
Allows you to set the gain level for the audio signal from the Line In 1,
Microphone, and the Line Out ports.
Record
Allows you to configure the recording options for the IP module. You can
record video from the Livepage to a hard drive or you can opt to store up
to 8 MB of video on the IP module.

Configuring the IP Camera
To operate the camera in your network you must assign it a valid network IP address. The
default IP address is 192.168.0.1, but you may have to change this address if it conflicts with
another device on your network.
To properly configure the camera for your network, you need the following information:
–
Unit IP address: An identifier for the camera on a TCP/IP network. For example,
–
Subnet mask: A mask used to determine what subnet an IP address belongs to.
140.10.2.110 is a valid syntax for an IP address.
–
Gateway IP address: A node on a network that serves as an entrance to another network.
–
Port: An endpoint to a logical connection in TCP/IP and UDP networks. The port number
identifies the use of the port for use through a firewall connection.
i
NOTICE! Ensure that the network parameters of your cameras are available before you begin
configuration.
The IP AutoDome defaults are as follows:
–

A
Address
Each AutoDome has a numerical address in the control system in which it is located. This
allows the appropriate dome to be operated. The address may be set locally using the Bilinx
Configuration Tool for Imaging Devices (CTFID) or remotely using the Fast Address function
(see Fast Address).
Advanced Alarm Control (AAC)
AutoDome’s flexible and sophisticated alarm management subsystem that allows “rules” to be
created that define which input(s) activate one or more outputs (see Alarm Rule). In its most
basic form, a rule could define which input(s) should activate which output(s). In a more
complex form, a rule can be programmed to take a specific keyboard command (pre-existing
or not) and perform a dome function, or any combination of the above.
Advanced Diagnostics
Bosch’s combination of built-in On Screen Displays (OSD) and status LEDs that are used to
check critical camera parameters such as internal temperature, input voltage levels, and
network connectivity. This allows a technician to quickly determine the source of problems
and ensure that the dome is functioning within correct operating limits.
Aperture
The size of the opening in the iris, which controls the amount of light that reaches the CCD
Sensor. The larger the F-Stop numbers, the less light reaches the sensor.
AutoBlack
A technique of boosting the video signal level to produce a full amplitude video signal even
when the scene contrast is less than full range (glare, fog, mist, etc.). The darkest part of the
signal is set to black and the lightest part to white, thus increasing the contrast.
AutoDome
Fully integrated, high speed, pan/tilt/zoom camera built into a protective dome housing
allowing full and continuous 360° coverage of the scene.
Auto Focus
The lens continuously adjusts to the correct focus automatically for the sharpest picture.
AutoIris
The lens iris opening is automatically adjusted to allow the correct illumination of the camera
sensor.
Automatic Gain Control (AGC)
The electronics that regulate the gain or amplification of the video signal.
AutoPan
The camera pans continuously between right and left limit settings.
AutoPivot
As the camera tilts through the vertical position, the camera is rotated to maintain the correct
orientation of the image.
AutoPlayback
This function records the sequence of movements of the AutoDome PTZ for later playback
allowing a set pattern to be repeated automatically. This function is often called Guard Tour.

AutoScaling
As the camera zooms in to increase the size of objects on the monitor screen, the pan and tilt
speeds are reduced so that the relative speed on the screen remains constant for similar
joystick control positions.
AutoTrack
A patented technology that integrates motion detection into the camera allowing tracking of
an object and zooming in to optimize size and perspective.
Auto White Balance (AWB)
A feature that allows a color camera to automatically adjust its output color to give a natural
color independent of the lighting used.
B
Back Light Compensation (BLC)
Selectively amplifies parts of the image to compensate for large contrast differences when
only a portion of the image is brightly lit (e.g. a person in a sunlit doorway).
Balun (Balance Unbalanced)
A device that converts a balanced video signal (e.g. as used on twisted pair) line to an
unbalanced signal (e.g. as used on coax). In a balanced line, such as twisted pair, both wires
are electrically equal. In an unbalanced line such as coax, one line has different electrical
properties than the other.
Bilinx
A communications format that allows remote control, configuration and updates to be
performed over the video cable (Coax or Passive UTP).
Biphase
Pan/Tilt/Zoom protocol for Bosch products.
C
Cable Category
Application and bandwidth rating system for UTP cabling. Categories 1 through 6 are based on
EIA/TIA-568-B standards. Category is typically abbreviated CAT. UTP Category 5, 5e, and 6 are
used for Ethernet data cabling applications. Ethernet wiring distances are limited to a
maximum of 100m (328ft.) when using UTP wiring.
Cable Compensation
A technology that prevents image degradation caused by signal losses when transmitting
video over long cable lengths.
CCD Format
Indicates the size of the camera sensor used. In general, the larger the sensor, the more
sensitive the camera and the better the image quality. The format is quoted in inches, for
example 1/4" or 1/3". See Charge Coupled Device (CCD).
CCD (Charge Coupled Device)
The most common type of solid state image sensor used in CCTV cameras. The sensor
converts light energy into electrical signals.
CCTV (Closed Circuit TeleVision)
A video system that transmits television signals over a closed (non-broadcast) system.

Color Temperature
A measure of the relative color of illumination. Most generally used to specify the automatic
correction range of a color camera.
CTFID (Configuration Tool for Imaging Devices)
Bosch software used to configure and update cameras and other remote devices over video
cable using Bilinx, and to save them for later use.
D
Day/Night (IR sensitive)
An AutoDome that has normal color operation in situations where there is sufficient
illumination (day conditions), but where the sensitivity can be increased when there is little
light available (night conditions). This is achieved by removing the infrared cut filter required
for good color rendition. The sensitivity can be further enhanced by integrating a number of
frames to increase the signal to the noise ratio of the camera.
Default Shutter
This feature allows the shutter speed to be set to a fast speed to eliminate motion blur and
providing detailed and clear image of fast-moving objects while there is sufficient light. When
light levels fall and other adjustments have been exhausted, the shutter speed reverts to the
standard setting to maintain sensitivity.
Digital Image Stabilization
See Image Stabilization.
DNR (Dynamic Noise Reduction)
A digital video processing technique that measures the noise (image artifacts) in the picture
and automatically reduces it.
E
Ethernet
The most commonly used local area network (LAN) access method. Ethernet complies with
the IEEE 802.3 standard. The Ethernet standard supports 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps and 1000 Mbps
(Gigabit) data transmission rates.
EnviroDome
AutoDome with environmental protection that allows it to be used outdoors in almost any
climate.

F
Fast Address
A system for setting the address of the AutoDome remotely from the control system.
Fiber Optic Transmission
Refers to the transmission of video and/or data via optical fibers. Optical fibers are thin glass
strands that are designed for light wave transmission. Video and data are digitized and
transformed into a series of light pulses. The use of fiber optics for video and data
transmission offers several advantages over sending electrical signals across copper wires.
First, light pulses are not affected by random radiation in the environment, and thus their
error rate is far lower. Fiber optics span far greater distances without need for repeaters or
signal regenerators, and are far more secure as they are more difficult to tap and taps in the
line can be detected. Optical fiber also provides enormous bandwidth with a single fiber
capable of transmitting trillions of bits per second. There are two primary types of optical
fiber; singlemode and multimode. Singlemode fiber is used when large distances must be
spanned, typically greater than 2 Km/1.2 miles (see Singlemode). Multimode is typically used
to span smaller distances such as the inside of buildings or on small campuses (see
Multimode).
Field of View
The measure of the visible area within the camera’s field of view. The larger the focal length,
the smaller the field of view. The smaller the focal length, the wider the field of view.
Focal Length
The distance from the optical center of the lens to the image of an object located at an infinite
distance from the lens. Long focal lengths give a small field of view (e.g. telephoto effect),
while short focal lengths give a wide angle view.
F-Number
The standard measure of the lens aperture, which is the iris diameter, divided by the focal
length of the lens. The lower the maximum aperture (or F-Number), the more light that passes
through the lens.
F-Stop
See F-Number.
G
Gateway Address
A node on a network that serves as an entrance to another network.
Guard Tour
Allows recorded tours with a combined duration of 15 minutes. Recorded tours consist of
control commands and can be played back as needed. All camera position information is
stored for maximum flexibility (including pan, tilt, zoom, etc.).
H
Hybrid Streaming
The ability to simultaneously stream IP video across a local or wide area network, and CVBS
video via coaxial or fiber optic cabling.

I
Image Stabilization
An algorithm that virtually eliminates camera shake in both the vertical and horizontal axes,
resulting in exceptional image clarity.
Infrared Illumination
Electromagnetic radiation (light) with a longer wavelength than is visible to the naked eye. IR
illumination is prominent at dusk and dawn and in incandescent lamps. IR illuminators come
in the form of lamps with the appropriate filters, LEDs, or lasers. CCD sensors are less
sensitive to IR than visible light, but IR can significantly increase the total illumination level,
leading to a much better image at low light levels.
IP 66
The IP code (Ingress Protection) indicates the degree of protection provided by enclosures for
electrical equipment. The first number indicates protection of internal equipment against the
ingress of solid foreign objects. The second number indicates protection of internal
equipment against harmful ingress of water. Higher digits refer to higher levels of protection.
See also NEMA rating.
IP Address
The address of a device attached to an IP network. Each device on an IP network must use a
unique address. Every IP data packet contains a source address (sender) and a destination
address (recipient). Each IP address consists of 32-bits that are arranged into four 8-bit
“octets” (x.x.x.x). IP addresses range from 0.0.0.0 to 255.255.255.255.
IPS (Images Per Second)
A measurement of the rate that pictures are displayed to create a video stream. A rate of 25
IPS (PAL) or 30 IPS (NTSC) is generally considered to be full motion video.
IRE (Institute of Radio Engineers)
A measurement of video amplitude that divides the area from the bottom of sync to peak
white level into 140 equal units. 140 IRE equals 1V peak to peak. The range of active video is
100 IRE.
L
Lux
The International (SI) unit of measurement of the intensity of light. It is equal to the
illumination of a surface one meter away from a single candle.

M
MJPEG
Motion JPEG is a digital video encoding standard where each video frame is separately
compressed into a JPEG image.
Modal Dispersion (or Intermodal Dispersion)
A broadening of a waveform over long distances. Modal dispersion occurs in multimode fibers,
because light is bounced down different reflective paths (e.g. modes) in the fiber. As the
distance increases, the path (mode) begins to spread and the arrival time for the different
light rays begins to vary. A large variance (dispersion) increases the chance that the optical
receiver may interpret the incoming signals incorrectly. Modal dispersion is a major problem
with multimode fibers.
MPEG-4
A digital video encoding and compression standard that uses interframe encoding to
significantly reduce the size of the video stream being transmitted. With interframe coding, a
video sequence is made up of keyframes that contain the entire image. In between the
keyframes are delta frames, which are encoded with only the incremental differences. This
often provides substantial compression because in many motion sequences, only a small
percentage of the pixels are actually different from one frame to another.
Multimode Fiber
An optical fiber with a larger core (typically 50 or 62.5 microns) than singlemode fiber. The
core can be made of plastic or glass fibers and it is the most commonly used fiber for short
distances such as LANs. The name multimode comes from the fact that light rays travel down
multiple reflective paths (modes) within the fiber. This allows light to enter the core at
different angles, making it easier to connect to broader light sources such as LEDs (light
emitting diodes). Fiber optic interfaces and multimode fiber-based transmission systems are
less expensive than those based on singlemode fiber. However, the use of multiple reflective
paths (modes) increases modal dispersion (see Modal Dispersion) and shortens the distances
that this type of fiber optic transmission system can span.
Multi-Protocol
A protocol is a convention or standard that controls or enables the connection,
communication, and data transfer between two devices. In PTZ cameras such as the
AutoDome, protocol refers to the standard used to control the pan, tilt, and zoom (PTZ)
operation of the camera. Since each dome camera manufacturer’s PTZ protocols are unique,
multi-protocol support is needed to support third party dome systems. AutoDome cameras
support the Pelco “D” and “P” protocols and well as Bosch’s own biphase protocol (See
Biphase).

N
NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association) Rating
Specification standards in reference to the operating environment for a variety of electrical
devices.
NightSense
A method of boosting the sensitivity of high-resolution Bosch color cameras by 9db (a factor
of 3) by combining the signal of the color image in a single monochrome picture.
NPT (National Pipe Thread)
A U.S. standard for tapered threads. NPT sizes measure the nominal inside diameter of the
pipe. NPT threads form a seal as the threads compress against each other.
O
OSD (On-Screen Display)
Menus are shown on the display monitor.
P
Pan
Camera movement in the horizontal direction.
Pixel
The smallest addressable unit on a display screen or bitmapped image.
Pre-Position
A pre-selected and stored combination of pan, tilt and zoom positions that allow a set view to
be recalled. Also known as Preset Shot.
Preset Tour
A sequence of preset shots combined to provide a pre-programmed tour of the area covered
by an AutoDome camera.
Pressurized Dry Nitrogen Housing
A housing for outdoor applications that protects against smog, humidity, dirt and dust.
Privacy Masking
The ability to mask out a specific area to prevent it being viewed.

R
Region of Interest
The defining of a specific area within a field of view to be used by the motion detection
algorithm to only look for motion within this region.
Resolution
The measure of the fine detail that can be seen in an image. For analog systems this is
typically measured in Television Lines or TVL. The higher the TVL rating, the higher the
resolution.
RS232/485
A communication interface for third party control and firmware upgrades to the AutoDome
products.
Rule
AutoDome’s alarm management subsystem that uses “if this, do that” rules to perform
specific actions when an event occurs.
S
Sector Blanking
The ability to blank out video in any of the 16 pan sectors.
Sensitivity
A measure of the amount of light required to provide a standard video signal. Sensitivity
values are stated in lux or foot-candles.
SensUp
Increases camera sensitivity by increasing the integration time on the CCD. This is
accomplished by integrating the signal from a number of consecutive video frames to reduce
signal noise.
Singlemode Fiber
An optical fiber with a silica (e.g. glass) core with a diameter of less than 10 microns. Used for
high-speed transmission over long distances, it provides greater bandwidth than multimode,
but its smaller core makes it more difficult to couple the light source. Singlemode fiber optic
transmission systems use more expensive laser-based light sources.
Spot Focus
Activates Auto Focus for three seconds after camera movement.
Subnet Mask
Subnetting is a method that allows one large network to be broken down into several smaller
ones. Depending on the network class (A, B, or C), some number of IP address bits are
reserved for the network address (subnet) and some for the host address. For example, Class
A addresses use 8 bits for the subnet address and 24 bits for the host portion of the address.
Class A subnet masks are denoted 255.0.0.0. Class B addresses (16 bits for both the subnet
and host address) use a 255.255.0.0 subnet mask. Class C addresses (8 bits for the subnet
and 24 bits for the host address) use a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.

T
TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol)
A communications protocol suite that provides two data transport methods. TCP is a
connection-based protocol that ensures that data arrives intact and complete. UDP is a
connectionless, best effort protocol that simply sends out packets. UDP is typically used for
streaming media, while TCP is used when error-free delivery is required.
Tilt
Camera movement in the vertical direction.
Tri-streaming
A Bosch encoding technology that generates two separate MPEG-4 video streams and one
MJPEG stream simultaneously. This advanced streaming capability enables the user to tune
live viewing and recording requirements independently to meet specific site and enterprise
requirements.
U
UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair)
A variant of twisted pair cabling UTP cable is not surrounded by any shielding. The wires in a
twisted pair cable are twisted around each other to minimize interference from the other
twisted pairs in the cable. UTP is the primary wire type for telephone usage and the most
commonly used type of networking cable.
V
Virtual Masking
A unique Bosch technology that allows for the creation of “invisible” motion masking areas.
These invisible masks are similar to privacy zones, but only the AutoDome’s AutoTrack II and
Video Motion Detection algorithms can see them. This allows the AutoDome to ignore areas of
unwanted motion.
VMD (Video Motion Detection)
An algorithm for motion detection in which the camera compares the current image with a
reference image and counts the number of pixels (see Pixel) that have changed between the
two images. An alarm is generated when the number of pixel changes exceeds a userconfigured threshold.
X
XF-Dynamic
A highly accurate 15-bit digital signal processing technology from Bosch that extends the
dynamic range of DinionXF cameras to optimally capture the detail in both the high and low
light areas of the scene simultaneously, maximizing the information visible in the picture.
Z
Zoom
Changing the effective focal length to allow different fields of view to fill the picture area.
Zoom can be optical, where the lens is adjusted, or digital, where a portion of the view
selected is magnified electronically.
