Following a three-month trial at Barking Station, Bosch Security Systems’ latest FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000 MP camera has achieved the Network Rail PADS (Parts And Drawings System) seal of approval.
The busy convergence of overground and underground transport networks at Barking means that over 2,000 people per hour pass through the 12-metre wide gate line at peak times. The installation of a FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000 MP camera provides operators with a full 360-degree overview of the gate line without any blind spots.
Its 12 Megapixel sensor resolution “significantly improves” the overall quality of the video surveillance system.
Dependent upon the installation situation, FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000 MP cameras deliver a full 360-degree or 180-degree field of view in a high resolution that enables people to be clearly identified.
FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000 MP cameras are one of the lowest profile panoramic cameras available, and have been designed to offer swift and easy installation via a twist-click concept. Once the mounting ring has been fixed in place, the camera is then connected and just twists and clicks into the mounting ring.
Built-in video analytics (referred to at Bosch as Intelligent Video Analysis) helps operators by raising alarms when needed and supporting them to quickly retrieve the correct data.
Content analysis information – in the form of metadata – is stored alongside the video images adding both sense and structure. Metadata contains details on all objects entering or leaving the monitored scene (full image circle) like speed, direction, colour and much more.
Since metadata is kept as a simple text string it’s much smaller and easier to search through.
The FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000 MP camera models complement Bosch Security Systems’ extensive PADS-approved products list including fixed box cameras, fixed dome cameras and moving (PTZ) dome cameras offering resolutions up to 4K ultra HD along with appropriate network video recorders and software.
