Bosch introduces new VIP X series of IP network video encoders and decoder

Product Profile

Bosch Security Systems’ new VIP X series of IP network MPEG-4 video encoders and decoder offer 4CIF real-time video using less than half the bandwidth and storage space of earlier models.

At a maximum frame rate of 30 frames/s, the series’ high-resolution real-time MPEG-4 compressed video offers virtually the same quality as the more space-hungry MPEG-2 compression.  The Flexible MPEG-4 compression algorithm also gives users the choice of different frame rates, ranging from 1 up to the maximum of 30 frames/s, to optimise bandwidth and storage space.

The VIP X encoders offer dual-streaming capability which enables them to provide two parallel digital video streams encoded with different video quality settings.  The VIP X1 offers full-motion video for a single camera, while the VIP X2 works with two cameras and offers greater convenience, cost-savings and ease of installation than a separate encoder for each camera.  Both encoders also feature fully-interlaced video, alarm inputs and relay outputs, and pan/tilt/zoom control.

The new high-performance Single/Quad Stream VIP XD decoder allows video to be received and displayed on analog or computer VGA monitors.  The cost-effective design features a robust MPEG-4 engine to convert high-quality 4CIF resolution digital-video streams at up to 30 frames/s into analog video for viewing.  The decoder can decode up to 4 streams at once, delivering a quad view on the operator’s monitor.

The VIP XD is definitely the most powerful decoder in Bosch’s family of IP products and is compatible with all VIP and VideoJet encoders. 

These products are ideal for a wide range of security applications where the highest quality video is needed, bandwidth is limited and storage needs to be saved.
  • Reduced data storage and system costs
  • Seamless integration with existing analog systems
  • Highest resolution video for half the storage (compared with MPEG-2)
  • Single/Quad stream decoding
