This camera provides clear images 24/7 – even at night
or under low-light conditions.
The exceptional starlight sensitivity enables this
camera to work with a minimum of ambient light. The
extended dynamic mode provides detailed images in
scenes with challenging lighting.
The camera is available in 1080p or 720p resolution
versions and provides up to 60 images per second.
The aesthetic vandal-resistant housing makes the
camera suitable for indoor or outdoor installation.
Functions
Exceptional low-light performance
The latest sensor technology combined with the
sophisticated noise suppression results in an
exceptional sensitivity in color. The low-light
performance is so good that the camera continues to
provide excellent color performance even with a
minimum of ambient light.
Fast performance
The 60 images-per-second mode provides for optimum
performance in fast action scenes and is particularly
suitable for casino and banking applications.
u

bandwidth and storage requirements by up to 50%
u
Extended Dynamic Range mode to see details in
bright and dark areas simultaneously
u
Easy to install with auto zoom/focus SR lens, wizard
and pre-configured modes
Extended dynamic range mode
The extended dynamic range mode is based on a
multiple-exposure process that captures more details
in the highlights and in the shadows even in the same
scene. The result is that you can easily distinguish
objects and features, for example, faces with bright
backlight.
The actual dynamic range of the camera is measured
using Opto-Electronic Conversion Function (OECF)
analysis according to IEC 62676 Part 5. This method is
used to provide a standard result which can be used
to compare different cameras.
Content Based Imaging Technology
Content Based Imaging Technology (CBIT) is used to
radically improve image quality in all lighting
conditions and to identify areas for enhanced
processing. The camera examines the scene using
Essential Video Analytics and provides feedback to retune the image processing. This provides better detail
in the areas that matter and better all-round
performance. Essential Video Analytics technology, for
example, allows you to view moving objects in bright
and dark areas of a scene.

Essential Video Analytics
The built-in video analysis reinforces the Intelligenceat-the-Edge concept and now delivers even more
powerful features. Essential Video Analytics is ideal for
use in controlled environments with limited detection
ranges.
The system reliably detects, tracks, and analyzes
objects, and alerts you when predefined alarms are
triggered. A smart set of alarm rules makes complex
tasks easy and reduces false alarms to a minimum.
Metadata is attached to your video to add sense and
structure. This enables you to quickly retrieve the
relevant images from hours of stored video. Metadata
can also be used to deliver irrefutable forensic
evidence or to optimize business processes based on
people counting or crowd density information.
Calibration is quick and easy – just enter the height of
the camera. The internal gyro/accelerometer sensor
provides the rest of the information to precisely
calibrate the video analytics.
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.

Multiple streams
The innovative multi-streaming feature delivers various
H.264 streams together with an M‑JPEG stream. These
streams facilitate bandwidth-efficient viewing and
recording as well as integration with third-party video
management systems.
Depending on the resolution and frame rate selected
for the first stream, the second stream provides a copy
of the first stream or a lower resolution stream.
The third stream uses the I-frames of the first stream
for recording; the fourth stream shows a JPEG image
at a maximum of 10 Mbit/s.
Regions of interest and E-PTZ
Regions of Interest (ROI) can be user defined. The
remote E-PTZ (Electronic Pan, Tilt and Zoom) controls
allow you to select specific areas of the parent image.
These regions produce separate streams for remote
viewing and recording. These streams, together with
the main stream, allow the operator to separately
monitor the most interesting part of a scene while still
retaining situational awareness.
Intelligent Tracking can follow objects within the
defined regions of interest. Intelligent Tracking can
autonomously detect and track moving objects or the
user can click on an object which the tracker will then
follow.
Storage management
Recording management can be controlled by the
Bosch Video Recording Manager (VRM) or the camera
can use iSCSI targets directly without any recording
software.
Edge recording
Insert a memory card into the card slot to store up to
2 TB of local alarm recording. Pre-alarm recording in
RAM reduces recording bandwidth on the network,
and extends the effective life of the memory card.
Cloud-based services
The camera supports time-based or alarm-based JPEG
posting to four different accounts. These accounts can
address FTP servers or cloud-based storage facilities
(for example, Dropbox). Video clips or JPEG images
can also be exported to these accounts.
Alarms can be set up to trigger an e-mail or SMS
notification so you are always aware of abnormal
events.
Easy installation
Power for the camera can be supplied via a Powerover-Ethernet compliant network cable connection.
With this configuration, only a single cable connection
is required to view, power, and control the camera.
Using PoE makes installation easier and more costeffective, as cameras do not require a local power
source.
The camera can also be supplied with power from
+12 VDC power supplies.
3 | FLEXIDOME IP starlight 6000 VR
To increase system reliability, the camera can be
simultaneously connected to both PoE and +12 VDC
supplies. If one power source fails, the other source
takes over without a reboot so providing power
redundancy.
The automatic zoom/focus lens wizard makes it easy
for an installer to accurately zoom and focus the
camera for both day and night operation. The wizard is
activated from the PC or from the on-board camera
push button making it easy to choose the workflow
that suits best.
The AVF (Automatic Varifocal) feature means that the
zoom can be changed without opening the camera.
The automatic motorized zoom/focus adjustment with
1:1 pixel mapping ensures the camera is always
accurately focused.
Automatic image rotation
The integrated gyro/accelerometer sensor
automatically corrects the image orientation in steps
of 90° if the camera is mounted at right angles or
upside down. The sensor image can also be rotated
manually through steps of 90°.
To efficiently capture details in long hallways without
loss of resolution, mount the camera at right angles.
The image is displayed upright at full resolution on
your monitor.
Scene modes
The camera has a very intuitive user interface that
allows fast and easy configuration. Nine configurable
modes are provided with the best settings for a variety
of applications. Different scene modes can be selected
for day or night situations.
Hybrid operation
A surge-protected analog video output allows full
hybrid operation. This means that high resolution IP
video streaming and an analog video output are
available simultaneously. The hybrid functionality
offers an easy migration path from legacy CCTV to a
modern IP-based system.
Aesthetic vandal resistant design
The compact aesthetic design is suitable for
installations where housing size and appearance are
important. The cast-aluminum housing, polycarbonate
window, and hardened inner liner can withstand the
equivalent of 55 kg (120 lbs) of force (IK10). The
camera is also protected against water and dust. Using
the proprietary pan/tilt/rotation mechanism, installers
can select the exact field of view. Mounting options
are numerous, including surface, wall, corner, and
suspended-ceiling mounting.
True day/night switching
The camera is a true day/night camera with a
mechanical filter for vivid daytime color and
exceptional night-time imaging while maintaining sharp
focus under all lighting conditions. The filter can be
switched remotely, or automatically via a light level
sensor or contact input.
Data security
Special measures have been put in place to ensure the
highest level of security for device access and data
transport. The three-level password protection with
security recommendations allows users to customize
device access. Web browser access can be protected
using HTTPS and firmware updates can also be
protected with authenticated secure uploads.
The on-board Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and
Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) support, guarantee
superior protection from malicious attacks. The 802.1x
network authentication with EAP/TLS, supports
TLS 1.2 with updated cipher suites including AES 256
encryption.
The advanced certificate handling offers:
• Self-signed unique certificates automatically created
when required
• Client and server certificates for authentication
• Client certificates for proof of authenticity
• Certificates with encrypted private keys
