Bosch extends its range of encoders with VideoJet 8008 8-channel MPEG encoder

Product Profile

VideoJet 8008 is Bosch's high-end, multi-stream Video-over-IP CCTV network-based video surveillance encoder.  It delivers the highest quality real-time video available today and its hardware engine produces 25 images per second of pure MPEG-4 video in DVD-like quality.  This 19-inch rack-mount single unit incorporates multiple encoders delivering eight full-motion video channels, with each channel generating non-multiplexed video at 30 images per second (IPS).

The high-quality output video signals allow video to be viewed on any standard PC using Bosch's VIDOS video management software or a web browser.  Alternatively if used in conjunction with a high-performance MPEG-4 decoder a point-to-point hybrid analogue/digital solution can be created.  This technology uses the highest quality analogue cameras and analogue CCTV monitors, but with a pure IP solution in-between.

The VideoJet 8008 has Dual Streaming technology, which encodes the video input signal in two different ways but simultaneously.  So, for example, in 2CIF resolution with 6 IPS for recording, and in 4CIF with 25 IPS for live viewing at a workstation with software decoder or a hardware monitor.

The encoder features three key recording modes: continuous ring or linear recording; a continuous alarm-sensitive mode and a pre-/post-alarm option which preserves a short segment of video just before and after the alarm (up to 128 events per camera can be recorded).

The internal hard disk records weeks at a time locally, or for more extended recording periods it can use the VIDOS-NVR network video recorder, which has RAID5 disk arrays attached for maximum fault tolerance and a storage capacity of over 45 TB.

Commenting on the VideoJet 8008, Adam Breeze, Strategic Marketing Manager of Bosch Security Systems said, "Not only is it powerful enough to simultaneously allow MPEG-4 live viewing, recording and playback or backup, but combined with a complete set of security and distributed system management it is also the market's most powerful, highest quality MPEG-4 encoder and recorder."
