Bosch adds new model to digital video recorder range

Product Profile

Bosch Security Systems’ new DVR1A Digital Video Recorder is a cost-effective replacement for traditional video recorders in CCTV surveillance systems.  It makes the recording, storage, retrieval and viewing of images much easier, faster and more efficient.  It is more reliable than a conventional recorder and, with no tape usage or regular maintenance required, its cost of ownership is significantly lower.  The DVR1A has a recorder hard disk capacity of 80 GB that offers much greater capacity than VHS-based systems.  The hard disk eliminates the need for frequent and costly maintenance of read / write heads and, with images stored digitally.  Searching through recorded footage by date/time or alarm events is easy, with the facility to retrieve images almost instantly.

Simple front panel controls – including jog/shuttle – make it straightforward to navigate through the on-screen menu, select options and view images.  For greater flexibility in viewing, storing and sharing, individual frames or video can be exported to a Compact Flash card and then transferred to a PC.  The DVR1A records video signals from a single camera input or multiple camera inputs, routed via a multiplexer.  It offers consistently superior image quality when compared to traditional time-lapse recorders, with no degradation of recorded images.
