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

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

Bosch VIP X1 XF single-channel video encoder
Bosch VIP X1 XF single-channel video encoder

The Bosch VIP-X1XF Main Profile encoder delivers real-time H.264 compressed video over IP. Delivering two independent streams per camera, each stream delivers full frame rate at best quality and are adjustable to allow viewing and recording at different quality levels. Equipped with a hardware accelerator for Bosch IVA functions, VIP-X1XF takes Intelligence-at-the-Edge to the next level. Same bandwidth, twice the resolutionThe implementation of main profile encoding gives users the benefit of DVD image quality video (4CIF) at the same bandwidth as MPEG-4 half resolution video (2CIF)*. Furthermore Bosch's low latency implementation of this main profile technology offers all the compression benefits of live video without sacrificing image quality, for top-of-the-line H.264 implementation.Designed for IVADesigned for intelligence from the ground up, VIP-X1XF brings you virtually unlimited performance for best quality video at 25/30 images per second@4CIF and full Intelligent Video Analytics. Adding VIP-X1XF, complete with optional IVA licence, to your existing analogue cameras transforms them into powerful, automated detectors that help operators to stay focused. The encoder brings a new level of automation to your CCTV monitoring. Edge-based, real-time processing instantly identifies and warns security teams of alert conditions, giving them the information they need to act quickly.SD card and iSCI recordingRecord two video streams independently on different media. Video can be recorded centrally on iSCI drives managed by Bosch VRM (Video Recording Manager) and redundantly on local media. If networks fail, Bosch VRM fills in gaps in the central recording via automatic network replenishment (ANR).Bilinx supportWith built-in Bilinx support, VIP-X1XF ensures optimum investment protection when migrating to IP. Existing cameras can stay in place, remote configuration functions and PTZ controls keep working without extra cabling, simply connect the coax to the encoder and its done.BenefitsUltra compact size for easy installation close to the cameraH.264 Main Profile encoding for double the resolution with the same bandwidth requirement*Two independent IP video streams per channel allow viewing and recording at two different quality levels ONVIF compliant, compatibility between manufacturers provides customers with open systemsDesigned for IVA, transforms your analogue cameras into powerful automated detectorsCompatible with Bosch Forensic Search which allows you to scan hours of video in just secondsSet adjustable privacy masks, a major benefit for urban surveillance applicationsDirect to iSCI recording and Bosch VRM support eliminates the need for NVR's, significantly reducing cost of ownershipBosch ANR support enables video recording even during network outages * In comparison to MPEG-4, depending on scene and quality settings

Bosch's new VIP X1600 XF series offers decoding as well as encoding functionality

Multichannel encoders plus new decoder module capable of decoding MPEG-4 and MPEG-2 video streams Second-generation VIP X1600 XF base unit with conventional and fibre network capabilities Bosch Security Systems has added important enhancements to its VIP X1600 video-over-IP series which as well as video encoding functionality now also provides video decoding functionality.  In the VIP X1600 XF series, Bosch has introduced a new switch platform in the rack-mount base unit that accommodates multichannel video and audio encoder modules as well as the new VIP X1600 XFMD decoder modules.  Bosch has also introduced several other enhancements in the VIP X1600 XF base unit.  The two 1 Gbps Ethernet ports on the front of the base unit, originally included to provide network port redundancy, are now supplemented by an additional 1 Gbps Ethernet port on the rear.  This provides a greater choice of network connectivity and allows for easier inside-rack cabling like, for example, direct connection to an iSCSI storage array (Internet Small Computer System Interface).  The new base unit also features a 1 Gbps small form factor pluggable (SFP) optical transceiver slot on the front to enable direct fibre connection to a remote Storage Area Network. As with the original series, the VIP X1600 XF base unit can accommodate up to four encoder modules, with each four analogue video inputs or combined analogue video/audio inputs and redundant power supply.  Additionally, the VIP X1600 XF base unit can accommodate up to four of the new VIP X1600 XFMD multichannel decoder modules featuring four analogue video outputs plus bi-directional audio. Encoder and decoder modules can be mixed and matched within the base unit and the modules are also "hot swappable", allowing modules to be added or exchanged at any time without interrupting transmission to the existing channels. Featuring four analogue BNC video outputs with bi-directional audio, the VIP X1600 XFMD decoder module is capable of decoding up to four MPEG-2 video streams without audio or up to 10 MPEG-4 video streams each at a maximum resolution of 4CIF@25/30 ips.  The decoder can also be set up to display 4 full screen video signals or 2 full screen and 2 quad views.  This allows the 10 MPEG-4 live video streams from a single decoder to be displayed on a compact monitor wall.  If 4 decoder modules are used, the system can serve a monitor wall of up to 16 analogue monitors displaying the live video from up to 40 cameras. Changing the setup and camera selection in small installations is easy with the decoder's highly intuitive web-based user interface (which can be accessed via a video management system).  The system administrator can set up a network scan to identify all cameras on the network, then assign the output of each camera to a specific analogue monitor using either on-screen selection buttons or a drag & drop function.  The interface also features an on-screen auto connect switch that allows the system configuration to be stored and automatically re-established in the event of a power cut to the system or in the event of any network failure.
