Configuring Intelligent Tracking
The AutoDome utilizes the built-in Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) to continuously follow an
individual or object even if it passes behind a Privacy Mask or a stationary object. The
AutoDome uses objects detected by IVA in a stationary preset position to activate the
Intelligent Tracking feature. Intelligent Tracking controls the pan/tilt/zoom actions of the
camera to keep the selected object in the scene.
To activate the Intelligent Tracking feature, one of the following conditions must be met:
–
The Silent IVA option must be selected in the VCA page on the Settings tab. Refer to
–
IVA must be active for at least one preset scene in the VCA page on the Settings tab. If
Section 7.40 VCA, page 97.
IVA is configured for one scene, then all other scenes have Intelligent Tracking enabled by
default. If a scene, however, has Motion+ of IVA Flow activated then the Intelligent
Tracker is disabled for these scenes.
NOTICE!
The following actions occur if Intelligent Tracking is active:
–
–
All other IVA objects are disabled in scenes with Intelligent Tracking.
The camera automatically disables the display of compass headings. Refer to Page 88 for
details of the Compass feature.
6.5.1
Intelligent Tracking Operation
The Intelligent Tracking feature behaves in one of the following ways:
–
A user controls the pan/tilt/zoom while the AutoDome is in Intelligent Tracking mode.
User actions always take precedence over Intelligent Tracking. If the AutoDome is actively
tracking an object and a user takes control, the AutoDome will attempt to track the
object after a period of inactivity.
–
An IVA alarm can trigger Intelligent Tracking to track a detected object.
A rule that triggers an IVA event must be set. The following standard tasks can be set
Object in field, Crossing Line, Loitering, Condition change, Following route, Entering
field, and Leaving field. Refer to the Intelligent Video Analysis Operation Guide for
complete details about using IVA.
–
A user manually selects an object in the live image area to track.
Intelligent Tracking allows a user to click a moving object in the live image display inside
the Livepage to identify an object to track.

Guidelines for Implementing Intelligent Tracking
Factors such as the viewing angle and unwanted motion (from trees, for example) may
interfere with Intelligent Tracking operation. Use the following recommendations to ensure
smooth Intelligent Tracking operation:
–
Mount/Mounting Surface Stability
–
Mount the camera in the most stable position. Avoid locations affected by vibrations,
such as those caused by a roof-top air conditioner. These vibrations may cause
complications when the camera zooms-in on a target.
–
Use the pendant arm mount, if possible. This mount option provides the most
–
Use guy wires to protect against strong winds if using the parapet mount.
stability for the camera.
–
Field of View
–
Select a location and viewing angle that allows the flow of people to move across
the camera’s field of view.
–
Avoid motion that moves directly towards the camera.
–
Avoid locations that attract large numbers of people, such as retail stores or
intersections. Intelligent Tracking is optimized for scenes with very few moving
objects.
–
Unwanted Motion
–
Avoid neon lights, flashing lights, night time lights, and reflected light (from a
window or mirror, for example). The flickering of these lights can affect the
Intelligent Tracking operation.

Using Intelligent Tracking
Intelligent Tracking continuously follows an individual or an object. Intelligent Tracking
operates by recognizing an object in motion and zooms-in to approximately 50% of the field of
view for an average target height of six feet. Refer to Section 6.5 Configuring Intelligent
Tracking, page 60, for details about activating the Intelligent Tracking feature.
Note: If you do not see these controls on the Livepage, ensure that the Enable AutoTrack
option is selected on the Livepage Functions page in the Settings tab. Refer to
Section 7.15 Livepage Functions, page 78.
Use the following options to control Intelligent Tracking:
–
Off: Disables Intelligent Tracking.
–
Auto: Enables Intelligent Tracking. Constantly monitors for and actively tracks motion.
–
Click: Click on a moving target in the live video image to enable the AutoDome to track
the movement of the selected target.
NOTICE!
When Intelligent Tracking is activated, the AutoDome disables the display of the compass
heading. Once Intelligent Tracking is set to Off, the AutoDome resumes display of the
compass heading. Refer to Page 88 for details of the Compass feature.
If the Intelligent Tracking feature is set to Auto or Click, the live video image displays an eye
icon in a color that conveys the state of the Intelligent Tracking:
–
White: SEEK mode
Intelligent Tracking is actively seeking a target to follow.
–
Pink: IDLE mode
Intelligent Tracking lost the selected target and will wait for the target to reappear using
the last known trajectory.
–
Black: ACTIVE mode
Intelligent Tracking is actively tracking a target.
–
Yellow: PASSIVE mode
Intelligent Tracking attempts to passively track a target while a user has camera control.
Several reasons may cause the Intelligent Tracking to stop tracking a target:
–
The target has stopped moving while being followed by Intelligent Tracking.
–
The target has moved behind a static object in the scene.
In these instances Intelligent Tracking switches to the IDLE mode (pink eye icon) and waits
for the target to reappear in the scene. The camera will restart tracking if a target starts
moving in the same area where the initial target stopped moving or if the camera detects an
object moving along the last known trajectory.

CAUTION!
Do not use any special characters, for example &, in the name.
Special characters are not supported by the system's internal recording management and may
therefore result in the Player or Archive Player being unable to play back the recording.
Password
An AutoDome 800 Series is generally protected by a password to prevent unauthorized access
to the unit. You can use different authorization levels to limit access.
The AutoDome 800 Series operates with three authorization levels: service, user and live.
The highest authorization level is service. After entering the correct password, you can access
all the functions of the AutoDome 800 Series and change all configuration settings.
With the user authorization level, you can operate the unit and also control cameras, for
example, but you cannot change the configuration.

switch between the different live image displays.
You can define and change a password for each authorization level if you are logged in as
service or if the unit is not password protected.
Enter the password for the appropriate authorization level here.
NOTICE!
Proper password protection is only guaranteed when all higher authorization levels are also
protected with a password. If a live password is assigned, for example, a service and a user
password must also be set. When assigning passwords, you should therefore always start
from the highest authorization level, service, and use different passwords.
Confirm password
In each case, enter the new password a second time to eliminate typing mistakes.
NOTICE!
A new password is only saved when you click the Set button. You should therefore click the

You can change individual parameter values of a profile and you can also change the name.
You can switch between profiles by clicking the appropriate tabs.
CAUTION!
The profiles are rather complex. They include a large number of parameters that interact with
one another, so it is generally best to use the default profiles.
Change the profiles only once you are fully familiar with all the configuration options.
In the default setting, Stream 2 is transmitted for alarm connections and automatic
connections. Bear this fact in mind when assigning the profile.
NOTICE!
All parameters combine to make up a profile and are dependent on one another. If you enter a
setting that is outside the permitted range for a particular parameter, the nearest permitted
value will be substituted when the settings are saved.
Profile name
You can enter a new name for the profile here. The name is then displayed in the list of
available profiles in the Profile name field.
Target data rate
You can limit the data rate for the AutoDome 800 Series to optimize utilization of the
bandwidth in your network. The target data rate should be set according to the desired
picture quality for typical scenes with no excessive motion.
For complex images or frequent changes of image content due to frequent movements, this
limit can be temporarily exceeded up to the value you enter in the Maximum data rate field.
Maximum data rate
This maximum data rate is not exceeded under any circumstances. Depending on the video
quality settings for the I- and P-frames, this fact can result in individual images being skipped.
The value entered here must be at least 10% higher than the value entered in the Target data
rate field. If the value entered here is too low, it will automatically be adjusted.
Video resolution
Here you can select the desired resolution for the video image. The following resolutions are
available for standard definition settings only:

The figure selected here determines the interval at which images are encoded and
transmitted. The image rate in ips (images per second) is displayed next to the text field.
Use the slide bar to select a frame rate from 30.00 ips to 1 ips.
Expert Settings
Use the expert settings to adapt the I-frame quality and the P-frame quality to specific
requirements, if necessary. The setting is based on the H.264 quantization parameter (QP).
GOP Structure
Select the structure you require for the Group of Pictures here. Depending on whether you
place greater priority on having the lowest possible delay (IP frames only) or using as little
bandwidth possible, you can choose between IP, IBP, and IBBP.
I-frame Distance
This parameter allows you to set the intervals in which the I-frames will be coded. 0 means
auto mode, whereby the video server inserts I-frames as necessary. An entry of 1 indicates
that I-frames are continuously generated. An entry of 2 indicates that only every second image
is an I-frame, and 3 only every third image etc.; the frames in between are coded as P-frames.
I-frame Quality
This setting allows you to adjust the image quality of the I-frames. The basic setting Auto
automatically adjusts the quality to the settings for the P-frame video quality. Alternatively,
you can use the slide control to set a value between 9and51. The value 9 represents the best
image quality with, if necessary, a lower frame refresh rate depending on the settings for the
maximum data rate. A value of 51 results in a very high refresh rate and lower image quality.
P-frame Quality
This setting allows you to adjust the maximum image quality of the P-frames. The basic setting
Auto automatically adjusts to the optimum combination of movement and image definition
(focus). Alternatively, you can use the slide control to set a value between 9and51. The value
9 represents the best image quality with, if necessary, a lower frame refresh rate depending
on the settings for the maximum data rate. A value of 51 results in a very high refresh rate and
lower image quality.

Audio
You can set the gain of the audio signals to suit your specific requirements. The current video
image is shown in the small window next to the slide controls to help you check the audio
source and improve assignments. Your changes are effective immediately.
If you connect via Web browser, you must activate the audio transmission on the Livepage
Functions page (see Section 6.6 The Livepage, page 61). For other connections, the
transmission depends on the audio settings of the respective system.
Audio
The audio signals are sent in a separate data stream parallel to the video data, and so increase
the network load. The audio data are encoded according to G.711 and require an additional
bandwidth of approx. 80 kbps for each connection. If you do not want any audio data to be
transmitted, select Off.
Line In
You can set the line input gain. Make sure that the display does not go beyond the green zone
during modulation.
Record Format

desired responses.
CAUTION!
Reflections of light (off glass surfaces, etc.), switching lights on or off or changes in the light
level caused by cloud movement on a sunny day can trigger unintended responses from the
motion detector and generate false alarms. Run a series of tests at different times of the day
and night to ensure that the video sensor is operating as intended.
For indoor surveillance, ensure constant lighting of the areas during the day and at night.
Sensitivity (MOTION+ only)
The basic sensitivity of the motion detector can be adjusted for the environmental conditions

Tamper detection
You can reveal the tampering of cameras and video cables by means of various options. Run a
series of tests at different times of the day and night to ensure that the video sensor is
operating as intended.
NOTICE!
The options for tamper detection can only be set for fixed cameras. Dome cameras or other
motorized cameras cannot be protected in this manner as the movement of the camera itself
causes changes in the video image that are too great.
Sensitivity
NOTICE!
This and the following parameter are only accessible if the reference check is activated.
The basic sensitivity of the tamper detection can be adjusted for the environmental conditions
to which the camera is subject.
The algorithm reacts to the differences between the reference image and the current video
image. The darker the observation area, the higher the value that must be selected.
Trigger delay (s)
You can set delayed alarm triggering. The alarm is only triggered after a set time interval in
seconds has elapsed and then only if the triggering condition still exists. If the original
condition has been restored before this time interval elapses, the alarm is not triggered. This
allows you to avoid false alarms triggered by short-term changes, for example cleaning
activities in the direct field of vision of the camera.
Global change
You can set how large the global change in the video image must be for an alarm to be
triggered. This setting is independent of the sensor fields selected under Select Area. Set a
high value if fewer sensor fields need to change to trigger an alarm. With a low value, it is

necessary for changes to occur simultaneously in a large number of sensor fields to trigger an
alarm.
This option allows you to detect, independently of motion alarms, manipulation of the
orientation or location of a camera resulting from turning the camera mount bracket, for
instance.
Global change
Activate this function if the global change, as set with the Global change slide control, should
trigger an alarm.
Scene too bright
Activate this function if tampering associated with exposure to extreme light (for instance,
shining a flashlight directly on the lens) should trigger an alarm. The average brightness of the
scene provides a basis for recognition.
Scene too dark
Activate this function if tampering associated with covering the lens (for instance, by spraying
paint on it) should trigger an alarm. The average brightness of the scene provides a basis for
recognition.
Scene too noisy
Activate this function if tampering associated with EMC interference (noisy scene as the result
of a strong interference signal in the vicinity of the video lines), as an example, should trigger
an alarm.
Reference Check
You can save a reference image that is continuously compared with the current video image. If
the current video image in the marked areas differs from the reference image, an alarm is
triggered. This allows you to detect tampering that would otherwise not be detected, for
example if the camera is turned.
1.
Click Reference to save the currently visible video image as a reference.
2.
Click Select Area and select the areas in the reference image that are to be monitored.

image is displayed in black and white below the current video image, and the selected
areas are marked in yellow.
4.
Select the Disappearing edges or Appearing edges option to specify the reference check
once again.
Disappearing edges
The area selected in the reference image should contain a prominent structure. If this
structure is concealed or moved, the reference check triggers an alarm. If the selected area is
too homogenous, so that concealing and moving the structure would not trigger an alarm,
then an alarm is triggered immediately to indicate the inadequate reference image.
Appearing edges
Select this option if the selected area of the reference image includes a largely homogenous
surface. If structures appear in this area, then an alarm is triggered.
Select Area
You can select the image areas in the reference image that are to be monitored. The video
image is subdivided into 858 square fields. Each of these fields can be activated or
deactivated individually.

Alarm Rules
The AutoDome 800 Series features an alarm rule engine. In its simplest form, an alarm rule
can define which input(s) activate which output(s). Basically, an alarm rule allows you to
customize an AutoDome 800 Series to automatically respond to different alarm inputs.
To configure an alarm rule specify one input from either a physical connection, a motion
detection trigger, or from a connection to the camera’s Livepage. The physical input
connection can be activated by dry contact devices such as pressure pads, door contacts and
similar devices
Next, specify up to two (2) rule outputs, or the camera’s response to the input. Outputs
include a physical alarm relay, an AUX command, or a preposition scene.

Quality of Service
The AutoDome offers Quality of Service (QoS) configuration options to ensure fast network
response to PTZ data and images. Quality of Service (QoS) is the set of techniques to manage
network resources. QoS manages the delay, delay variation (jitter), bandwidth, and packet
loss parameters to guarantee the ability of a network to deliver predictable results. QoS
identifies the type of data in a data packet and divides the packets into traffic classes that can
be prioritized for forwarding.
Consult with your network administrator for assistance configuring the Audio, Video, Control,
and the Alarm Video settings.
7.51
Multicast
In addition to a 1:1 connection between an encoder and a single receiver (unicast), the
AutoDome 800 Series can enable multiple receivers to receive the video signal from an
encoder simultaneously. The device either duplicates the data stream itself and then
distributes it to multiple receivers (Multi-unicast) or it sends a single data stream to the
network, where the data stream is simultaneously distributed to multiple receivers in a
defined group (Multicast). You can enter a dedicated multicast address and port for each
stream. You can switch between the streams by clicking the appropriate tabs.
NOTICE!
Multicast operation requires a multicast-enabled network that uses the UDP and the Internet
Group Management IGMP protocols. Other group management protocols are not supported.
The TCP protocol does not support multicast connections.
A special IP address (class D address) must be configured for multicast operation in a
multicast-enabled network.
The network must support group IP addresses and the Internet Group Management Protocol
(IGMP V2). The address range is from 225.0.0.0 to 239.255.255.255.

The multicast address can be the same for multiple streams. However, it will be necessary to
use a different port in each case so that multiple data streams are not sent simultaneously
using the same port and multicast address.
NOTICE!
The settings must be made individually for each stream.
Enable
To enable simultaneous data reception on several receivers you need to activate the multicast
function. To do this, check the box. You can then enter the multicast address.
Multicast Address
Enter a valid multicast address for each stream to be operated in multicast mode (duplication
of the data streams in the network).

Firmware
The AutoDome 800 Series is designed in such a way that its functions and parameters can be
updated with firmware. To do this, transfer the current firmware package to the unit via the
selected network. It will then be automatically installed there.
In this way, an AutoDome 800 Series can be serviced and updated remotely without a
technician having to change the installation on site.
Refer to Section 9 BVIP Firmware Updates, page 115, for firmware upgrade instructions.

CAUTION!
Before launching the firmware upload make sure that you have selected the correct upload
file. Uploading the wrong files can result in the unit no longer being addressable, in which
case you must replace the unit.
You should never interrupt the installation of firmware. An interruption can lead to the flashEPROM being incorrectly programmed. This in turn can result in the unit no longer being
addressable, in which case it will have to be replaced. Even changing to another page or
closing the browser window leads to an interruption.
Refer to Section 9 BVIP Firmware Updates, page 115, for firmware upgrade instructions.

Bubble Handling and Cleaning | en 113
Bubble Handling and Cleaning
The bubble is made of acrylic for excellent optical clarity. Special care is required when
handling and cleaning the bubble to avoid scratching it.
8.1
Handling
The bubble is packaged with a protective plastic sheet. It is recommended that the bubble
remain stored this way until it is ready to install. Limit handling the bubble, as any scratches
can quickly affect visibility.
8.2
Cleaning
If cleaning the bubble is required, use the following procedures and comply with all the
warnings listed below.
8.2.1
Cleaning the Bubble Interior
The extremely soft interior surface should not be cleaned by rubbing or dusting with a cloth.
Use clean dry compressed air, preferably from a spray can, to remove any dust from the
interior surface.
WARNING!
Do not use alcohol-based solutions to clean the bubble. This will cause the bubble to cloud
and over time cause stress aging, which makes the bubble brittle.
Removing the Pendant Bubble
Use the following procedure to remove the bubble:
1.
Using both hands, apply a counterclockwise (looking up at the dome) rotational force on
the Pendant Bubble Assembly to set the bubble latch.
2.
Insert a small (2 mm) straight blade screwdriver into the latch opening of the bubble
trim-ring to release the latch. Then remove the screwdriver. See the figure below.
Figure 8.1 Pendant Bubble Release Opening
3.
Rotate the bubble assembly counterclockwise approximately 20 degrees until the bubble
assembly releases from the pendant housing and remove the bubble.
4.
To replace the bubble, insert the bubble assembly into the pendant housing, and rotate it
clockwise (looking up at the dome) until it locks. The latch mechanism makes a click
when it locks.

AutoDome 800 Series HD PTZ Camera
Cleaning the Bubble Exterior
The exterior of the bubble is hard coated for extra protection. If cleaning becomes necessary,
only use cleaning solutions and cloths suitable for cleaning safety glass lenses. Dry the bubble
thoroughly with a dry nonabrasive cloth to prevent water spots. Never scrub the bubble with
any abrasive material or cleaners.
Do Not:
–
Do Not use abrasive or highly alkaline cleaners on the bubble.
–
Do Not scrape the bubble with razor blades or other sharp instruments.
–
Do Not use Benzene, Gasoline, Acetone, or Carbon Tetrachloride on the bubble.
–
Do Not clean bubbles in the hot sun or on very hot days.

BVIP Firmware Updates | en 115
BVIP Firmware Updates
The AutoDome 800 Series incorporate 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. The AutoDome 800 Series also allows an operator to update the BVIP firmware via
the TCP/IP network.
The latest BVIP firmware is available on the Bosch Security Systems Web site. To download
the service pack from the Web, navigate to www.boschsecurity.us, click the CCTV link, then
click Cameras, PTZ and navigate to the product page for the AutoDome 800 Series. Then click
the Software tab on the product page.
9.1
Upgrading the AutoDome 800 Series
The preferred method to update an AutoDome 800 Series is through a direct connection
between the camera and a PC. This method entails connecting the Ethernet cable from the
camera directly to the Ethernet port of a PC.
If the direct-connect method is not practical you can also update the AutoDome 800 Series
through a Local Area Network (LAN). You cannot, however, update the AutoDome 800 Series
through a Wide Area Network (WAN) or via the Internet.
9.2
Beginning the Firmware Update Process
Use this procedure to connect to your AutoDome 800 Series and to navigate to the Firmware
Update page.
1.
Launch Internet Explorer and type the IP address for the AutoDome 800 Series in the
Address bar and click Go.
Internet Explorer opens the Livepage view.
2.
Click the SETTINGS link, located at the top of the page.
3.
Click the Service link in the left pane.
4.
Click the Maintenance link below the Service link.
5.
Click the Search button and navigate to the firmware file (*.fw). Then, click OK.
6.
Click the Upload button.
7.
Click OK to the warning message to continue the firmware upload, or Cancel to stop the
upload.
The page displays a progress bar as the firmware is uploaded.
Note: Once the progress bar reaches 100% the system opens the reset page. Allow the
reset page to complete its action.
8.
Bosch Security Systems, Inc.
Once the reset is complete the upgrade is complete.
