Qognify announces deeper integration with Bosch’s suite of network cameras

PSIM pioneer Qognify has expanded the integration of its Situator and VisionHub platforms with Bosch’s network security cameras.

Operators can control and manage Bosch cameras centrally through Situator, including PTZ and PTZ-like control for moving and fixed cameras, automatic triggering of processes when predefined incidents occur based on pre-defined alarm rules. These rules are based on video analytics built into the camera, playback via local camera storage and camera tampering detection.

The integration of Bosch’s FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000 camera with Qognify VisionHub gives customers access to dewarping technology that eliminates fish eye lens distortion, provides 360° of view without blind spots, and an undistorted overview image.

Customers can digitally pan, tilt and zoom to focus on details without sacrificing the bigger picture, says Qognify. A single device can accommodate wide coverage and achieve a ‘normal’ view from an otherwise distorted or reversed image.

Bosch intelligent dynamic noise reduction, meanwhile, optimises storage capacity and eases network load.

Distinguishing between noise and relevant information, it only uses bandwidth when required and slashes the camera’s bitrate by up to 50% – and therefore the total cost of ownership.

VisionHub also helps security departments avoid network overload during working hours thanks to the automated, scheduled transfer from camera on-board storage to the centre. It also restores missing video from the camera’s on-board storage.

Qognify’s VisionHub integrates with the video analytics platform built-in to Bosch cameras. The integration also supports the central operation, on the recorder, of Qognify’s video analytics suite. Qognify says the combination of edge-based analytics (courtesy of Bosch) and server-based analytics (from Qognify) gives designers of CCTV solutions maximum flexibility.

“When mission-critical solutions are involved, it is essential that stringent quality checks are taken. Qognify’s solutions were tested to excel in multiple integrations,” said Rudolf Spielberger, head of the integration partner program at Bosch Security Systems. “Our strategic cooperation with Qognify is substantially enhancing the levels of security and delivering clear and quantifiable business advantages to our customers.”

Eran Noam, VP of global strategic partnerships of Qognify, said: “We are committed to advancing integration with leading technology partners and are proud of our integration with Bosch to yield a complete, tested and field-proven solution. It’s important that organizations have confidence in integrations so they can leverage the broad range of excellent, integrated products in today’s security marketplace.”
