Video | AUTODOME IP 5000 IR
Keep your security in focus with the many features of
the AUTODOME IP 5000 IR with integrated IR
technology from Bosch. The camera is carefully tuned
to deliver detailed HD images during daylight and full
details under low-light or no-light conditions with the
integrated IR illuminator. The intelligent IR illuminator
automatically adjusts the IR intensity according to
zoom and field of view to ensure that the scene is
illuminated uniformly. When connected using Bosch
transcoder technology, the AUTODOME IP 5000 IR can
stream through a low-bandwidth connection with fullscene awareness and is accessible through mobile
devices such as smart phones. The camera also
features the innovative Intelligent Digital Noise
Reduction (IDNR) algorithm, which reduces the video
bit rate up to 50% less than any other HD PTZ dome
The new AUTODOME IP 5000 and 5000 IR have a
three-step installation process that allows a single
person to assemble the complete PTZ camera,
potentially saving up to five minutes per camera
installation compared to the installation of a
conventional PTZ camera.
High-performance HD outdoor PTZ dome camera
with integrated IR illumination for scenes with low
or no ambient lighting
Long distance illumination up to 150 m allows easy
detection and following of moving targets
Variable illumination ensures that IR light is
uniformly distributed in the field to avoid dark spots
or over illuminated scene
See in the dark
The camera operates with Bosch’s smart variable IR
illumination technology resulting in outstanding lowlight video performance. Adding the Intelligent Digital
Noise Reduction (IDNR) algorithm, the video bit rate is
up to 50% lower than standard technology.
The camera offers unique flexibility that offers
configuration of IR on a per-zone basis. This ensures a
single dominant illumination source in a specific
scene, avoiding focus instability due to mixed lighting
Superior imaging performance
Designed using Bosch’s imaging platform, the
AUTODOME IP 5000 IR delivers high-resolution,
zoomed-in views with large coverage areas.
The camera comes with three (3) pre-tuned scene
modes to match various lighting conditions. Users can
complete the configuration without going through
multiple imaging settings.
Sodium vapor lamp white balance
The camera is an exceptional performer when
capturing video under a sodium vapor lamp (a street
lamp or tunnel lamp, for example). Uncorrected
images under these conditions have a yellowish tint,
which can make identification difficult. In the Sodium
Vapor White Balance mode, the camera automatically
compensates for the light from a sodium vapor lamp to
restore objects to their original color.
Three (3) pre-programmed user modes
• Indoor: general day-to-night changes without sun
highlights and street lighting
• Outdoor: general day-to-night changes with sun
highlights and street lighting
• Vibrant: enhanced contrast, sharpness and saturation
Superior privacy masking
For installations in public places where privacy of
private property is of high concern, the camera
provides 24 individual, easy-to-configure privacy
masks, with up to 8 displayed in the same scene. As
the camera is zoomed, each mask changes size
smoothly and quickly, ensuring that the covered object
cannot be seen in most cases.
PTZ drive and mechanism
The camera supports 256 pre-positions and two styles
of Guard Tours: Preset and Record/Playback. The
preset tour has capability for up to 256 pre-positions
with a configurable dwell time between pre-positions
and can be customized as to the order and frequency
each preset is visited. The camera also provides
support for two (2) recorded tours, which have a total
duration of 30 minutes of movements. These are
recorded macros of an operator’s movements,
including pan, tilt, and zoom activities, and can be
played back in a continuous manner.
Pan and tilt preset repeatability are accurate to within
±0.2 degrees to ensure that the correct scene is
captured every time. The camera delivers maximum
pan speed of 300 degrees per second and maximum
tilt speed of 160° degrees per second. The camera is
capable of manual speeds (pan and tilt) of 0.1 to 120
degrees per second. The camera provides a pan range
of up to 360 degrees continuous rotation.
The camera’s tilt angle is from 0° to +90°.
Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction reduces
bandwidth and storage requirements
The camera uses Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction
which actively analyzes the contents of a scene and
reduces noise artifacts accordingly.
The low-noise image and the efficient H.264
compression technology provide clear images while
reducing bandwidth and storage by up to 50%
compared to other H.264 cameras. This results in
reduced-bandwidth streams that still retain a high
image quality and smooth motion. The camera
provides the most usable image possible by cleverly
optimizing the detail-to-bandwidth ratio.
Area-based encoding
Area-based encoding is another feature which reduces
bandwidth. Compression parameters for up to eight
user-definable regions can be set. This allows
uninteresting regions to be highly compressed, leaving
more bandwidth for important parts of the scene.
User can configure area-based encoding for every
configured preset, allowing important parts of the
scene to be encoded at high resolution and
unimportant parts (such as the sky, trees in the
background, etc.) to be encoded at lower quality.
Intelligent Defog
Users can configure the mode to be active
continuously, or to activate automatically when the
video analytics in the camera detect fog and add light
to the video image (and then deactivate when the fog
clears or the scene changes).
Advanced streaming
The camera offers advanced streaming capabilities so
that you can configure the camera to take advantage of
the latest network technology.
The camera is designed on the most efficient and
powerful H.264 encoding platform capable of
delivering high-quality HD video with very low network
load. The new intelligent encoding capabilities drops
the bandwidth consumption to extremely low levels if
the camera detects no motion in the scene.
The camera is capable of quad streaming which allows
the camera to be configured to deliver independent,
configurable streams for live viewing, recording, or
remote monitoring on constrained bandwidths.
Recording and storage management
A memory card (a maximum of 32GB microSDHC /
64GB microSDXC)" can be used for local alarm
recording or for scheduled local recording to improve
the overall recording reliability. Recording
management can be controlled by the Bosch Video
Recording Manager (VRM), or the camera can use
iSCSI targets directly without any recording software.
Alarm handling and Motion Detection
A wide range of configuration options is available for
alarms signaling the camera. A built-in algorithm for
detecting movement on presets can also be used for
alarm signaling, or the camera can interface to an
external alarm source using the built-in alarm I/O
ports. In addition, a user can also schedule virtual
alarms. Any of the available external alarm, motion
alarm or scheduled virtual alarms can then be used to
trigger a relay output or to force the camera to do
certain tasks (for example, to start a guard tour or to
go to a preset location).
Access security
Password protection with three levels and 802.1x
authentication is supported. To secure Web browser
access, use HTTPS with a SSL certificate stored in the
camera. The video and audio communication channels
can be independently AES encrypted with 128-bit keys
by installing the optional encryption site license.
Complete viewing software
There are many ways to access the camera’s features:
using a web browser, with the Bosch Video
Management System, with the free-of-charge
Bosch Video Client, with the video security mobile
app, or via third-party software.
Video security App
The Bosch video security mobile App has been
developed to enable Anywhere access to HD
surveillance images allowing you to view live images
from any location. The App is designed to give you
complete control of all your cameras, from panning
and tilting to zoom and focus functions. It’s like taking
your control room with you.
This App, together with the separately available Bosch
transcoder, will allow you to fully utilize our dynamic
transcoding features so you can play back images even
over low-bandwidth connections.
System integration
The camera conforms to the ONVIF Profile S and
Profile G specifications. This guarantees
interoperability between network video products
regardless of manufacturer.
Third-party integrators can easily access the internal
feature set of the camera for integration into large
projects. Visit the Bosch Integration Partner Program
(IPP) website ( for more
Ease of installation and servicing
The camera has been designed for quick and easy
installation, a key feature from Bosch CCTV products.
Bosch designed the camera with the knowledge that
field cables and mounts are installed before the
camera is mounted. The new installation concept
allows a single person to connect the cables directly
to the camera without re-routing cables. The camera is
easily secured to the mount with a single screw. The
three-step installation process can save up to 5
minutes per camera installation compared to any
conventional PTZ dome.
The camera is rated to provide IP66 protection and
offer an operating temperature range down to -40 °C
(-40 °F). The housing comes fully assembled with a
sunshield and ready for wall or pipe applications with
the proper mounting hardware (sold separately).
Dual power options
All models can be powered by a High Power-overEthernet (Bosch High PoE)-compliant network using a
Bosch High PoE Midspan (sold separately) over a
single network cable and/or a 24VAC power supply.
When powered using High PoE or PoE+ (IEEE 802.3at
class 4) configuration, only a single cable connection
is required to power and to control the camera while
also viewing images from the camera. For additional
system reliability, users also have the option to
connect the 24 VAC power supply to the camera while
using High PoE.
Easy upgrade
Remotely upgrade the camera whenever new firmware
becomes available. This ensures up-to-date products,
thus protecting investment with little effort.
Unsurpassed reliability
As with all Bosch products, the camera is designed
using the industry’s best design process and is
subjected to the most stringent testing standards such
as HALT (highly accelerated life testing), which pushes
the limits of products to ensure reliability throughout
their lifetime.
