Review: Bosch MIC IP Starlight 7000 HD PTZ

Bosch MIC IP Starlight 7000 HD is a powerful surveillance solution
Bosch MIC IP Starlight 7000 HD is a powerful surveillance solution

Bosch’s MIC IP Starlight 7000 HD is a special video surveillance camera that puts huge power into the hands of operators. It’s flexible, easy to drive, has a quality camera and lens, does well against backlight and in low light. There are particular applications for which it’s likely no other camera will do. 

PTZ cameras are fun to review because they are so flexible in terms of their capabilities and the flexibility of this Bosch MIC PTZ made it the most fun of all. This is a strong surveillance solution, offering operation in layers. It’s tough as an old boot but there’s no scrimping when it comes to the camera system. There’s no scrimping when it comes to the lighting system, either, but more on that later.

For end users and installers, the secret to taking advantage of the changing situation is going to be about being open to the left field when meeting operational needs, about being prepared to insist on open platforms offering the most lateral integrations. For installers and integrators, it’s about being entirely immersed in the spaces between technology.

Consumers warming up to biometric authenticators

A REPORT by EyeVerify, maker of the Eyeprint ID biometric technology for smart mobile devices, found that nearly 8 out of 10 respondents want more biometric authentication methods beyond the fingerprint to access mobile banking or payment apps. 

The relevance of the report for electronic security people is that biometric authentication is seen as adding security, value and quality to providers, as well as driving increased app use – that’s vital for mobile security applications seeking a differentiator. 

“The Retail Banking Biometrics Confidence Report,” the survey was conducted to give financial institutions insight into consumer preferences and behaviour regarding various biometrics offerings, according to the company.
