Bosch pushed boundaries of technology at IFSEC 2008

Product Profile

At IFSEC 2008, Bosch Security Systems demonstrated its total security solutions capability with its complete range of proven, reliable CCTV, intruder and communications technologies.

Seen for the first time in the UK was the Bosch Divar MR, a new generation CCTV management technology that combines the very highest quality digital video recording with the ability to view and control cameras, handle alarms and monitor device status all through a common interface.

The Divar MR is well suited to a wide range of retail, education and leisure applications.  At its core it provides simultaneous, real-time recording on up to 16 channels and it uses MPEG-4 compression technology to significantly reduce bandwith and increase storage capability (whilst reducing the overall storage costs).  

Both the both eight and 16-channel versions of Divar MR are standard, and a variety of control and input options are available including mouse, CCTV keyboard, front panel (which includes a jog dial for even faster access) and IR remote control.  The unit is compatible with all other Bosch CCTV technology as well as third-party domes and PTZ cameras.

Also on show was the innovative Bosch Video Management System (BVMS) - the enterprise IP video security solution that provides seamless management of digital video, audio and data across any IP network.  It is designed to work with Bosch CCTV products as part of a total video security management system, and provides system-wide user management, alarm handling, health monitoring and configuration.

During the course of IFSEC, Bosch Security Systems held a series of seminar sessions entitled ‘Beyond the NVR - a look at the next generation of IP surveillance technologies' given by Dr Bob Banerjee, Product Marketing Manager for IP video products in North America.

During the seminars, Dr. Banerjee provided his perspective on several topics, including the benefits of open systems; the most effective architectures for typical IP video surveillance installations; and important aspects of the demo, spec and quote cycle for these solutions.

These interactive sessions shed light on the advantages and drawbacks of each type of technology used for digital video recording and the factors to keep in mind when installing or upgrading a surveillance solution.
