Flexidome IP panoramic cameras, by Bosch Security Systems, is the latest in the range of panoramic IP cameras to get integrated with Milestone’s XProtect® video management software (VMS). Additionally, Bosch is releasing these cameras with a dewarping plug-in which allows multiple detailed-views from the 360° overview, when presented in the XProtect® Smart Client. The detailed-views look similar to the views generated by traditional cameras as they eliminate the image distortion created by the fish-eye lens.

“In the recent years, the market has seen a steady shift towards 360° or panoramic cameras that provide all round coverage and show everything from a single view. With the Flexidome IP cameras from Bosch, users get cameras that come integrated with Milestone VMS and a new plug-in which allows efficientclient side dewarpingof various simultaneous regions of interest. This leverages Bosch’s high resolution stream even with higher framerates.” – states Rudi Spielberger, Head of Integration Partner Program at Bosch Security Systems.

The plug-in expands the capability in the XProtect Smart Client to view the surveillance video, as the algorithm is calibrated automatically once a pre-configured stream is received.

Installing the Flexidome IP cameras with the dewarping plug-in and the Milestone’ VMS in a security system offers the following attributes:


  • With the Flexidome IP cameras, there will be no more blind spots and users get enhanced and more detailed images that are easier to manage
  • The plug-in processes data on the GPU and reduces the system reliance on the CPU, which also operates as fallback mode.
  • As the plug-in detects the lens on the camera and automatically configures the stream, nothing further needs to be done in the smart client.


The solution is available with the release of the latest device pack from Milestone.
