Upgrading your CCTV system
is now as simple as changing

AutoDome’s flexible, interchangeable modules allow you to make whatever changes you need without
buying a new system or installing new cameras. It’s the last camera system you’ll ever need to buy –
the only system that can future-proof your security investment. And it’s only available from Bosch.

And replace the bubble.
A 200, 300 or 500i CPU Module and PTZ Camera Module are required to add pan/tilt/zoom functionality to an AutoDome 100 Series dome.
As your security needs change, you can expand the functionality of your system by simply replacing the fully interchangeable
CPU, camera and/or communications modules. The main unit remains intact. So you can start with a 100 Series stationary
camera with the most basic features today and move up to an advanced 500i Series PTZ with image stabilization, motion
tracking and alarm handling rules engine tomorrow – all as quickly and easily as changing a lightbulb.

See it all with exceptional
clarity and control
AutoDome camera modules are available with state-of-the-art technologies that are designed to deliver
optimal image clarity, camera control and sensitivity. Whatever the situation, Bosch technology makes it
easy to capture clear images.
High-resolution optics — With horizontal resolution of up to 540 TVL, Bosch generates more TV lines than conventional
CCTV cameras, resulting in dramatically sharper images for clearer and more accurate identification.
Precise camera control — Bosch patented AutoScale
proportional zoom technology automatically reduces
pan and tilt speeds in proportion to the depth of
zoom, ensuring precise camera control regardless of
zoom level. AutoPivot automatically rotates the
camera 180° once it tilts past the vertical position to
maintain correct image orientation.
Enhanced sensitivity — SensUp shutter control
automatically slows shutter speeds to as long as one
full second, increasing sensitivity by more than
50 times for clearer images in low light.
Extended zoom — Get tight close-ups with optical zoom
lenses from 18x to 26x, or an industry-leading 36x plus a
full 12x digital zoom once the end of the optical zoom is

Advanced intelligence
for advanced capabilities
The true intelligence of the AutoDome Modular Camera System lies within the CPU module.
For the most advanced functionality of any dome camera available, turn to the 500i Series CPU.
With built-in image stabilization, motion detection, and a sophisticated alarm handling rules engine,
the AutoDome 500i is unrivaled in the CCTV industry. And even if you don’t need these advanced
capabilities now, the modularity of the new AutoDome gives you the ability to quickly and easily
upgrade to them in the future.
AutoTrack II with virtual masking accurately tracks subjects without getting confused by swaying trees or other moving objects.
AutoTrack II — The Bosch revolutionary and award-winning automated motion tracking system, AutoTrack, has been
further enhanced in the 500i Series. It contains an advanced DSP, which provides real-time video processing for
incredibly smooth object tracking. The new AutoTrack II also has the ability to continuously follow an object even if it
passes behind a privacy mask. It also uses Bosch’s unique virtual masking technology, which creates invisible masks so
the camera ignores any motion that occurs in that area. This enables AutoTrack II to ignore extraneous background
motion, making it ideal for indoor and outdoor applications.
Video Motion Detection (VMD) — With the AutoDome 500i Series, motion detection software can be configured to
create a region of interest within multiple preset positions where motion is to be detected. AutoDome VMD is much
more accurate than detection based on movement of a camera’s focus motor, which competitive cameras rely on. VMD
also takes advantage of Bosch virtual masking to ignore prescribed areas of motion.
With the advanced image stabilization software of the 500i Series, camera shake is eliminated for
exeptional clarity.
