Bosch Divar XF Series hybrid digital video recorder

Product Profile

  • Real-time recording and playback in genuine 4CIF resolution
  • Advanced H.264 hardware compression - Image quality improvement on recording of scenes with fast moving objects
  • Improved operation through low-bandwidth networks
  • Integration with the Bosch Video Management System and third party management software using VideoSDK
  • Local storage on four front-accessible hard drives
  • Control Centre software for centralized remote viewing, play-back, and configuration

The Bosch Divar XF digital video recorders offer top-of-the-line performance and adaptability. Equipped with four front-replaceable HD drives and extensive integration features, the XF is ideal for medium to large-scale or growing systems. Divar XF's superior image quality and compression gets the most out of CCTV images.

With Firmware 1.2, the company is taking another important step to improve image quality even further. With the improvement, images taken from scenes with fast moving objects are even clearer than before.

"The use of H.264, the new standard in video compression, gives us the perfect tool to put even more focus on image quality, with the additional benefit that H.264 requires less bandwidth and subsequently less storage," says Bosch's Vincent Bos, Product Manager of Digital Recording products.

As well as the considerable image quality improvements, the new Divar XF firmware offers improved operation through low bandwidth networks, runs more smoothly on low performance PCs and has optimized support for Windows Vista. The Divar XF is intended primarily for medium- to large-scale or growing surveillance systems in, for example, shopping centres, banks and financial institutions, city centres, casinos and hotel complexes.
