|The Bosch HD products offer a total video IP solution integrating both HD and standard definition (SD) devices |
has launched a new portfolio of high-definition (HD) surveillance technologies for specific applications where the benefits of HD are preferred as part of an overall CCTV solution. Bosch will be promoting the new portfolio in a series of HD Roadshows throughout April and at IFSEC
in May (stand 5/D90).
The new products are described as providing a complete solution across the entire surveillance chain, according to Paul Wong, Managing Director of Bosch Security Systems: "From scene to screen, every component is designed specifically for HD technology, ensuring that ‘HD in' equals ‘HD out',
" he says.
The Bosch HD portfolio of products offers a total video IP solution from camera to monitor with software that easily integrates both HD and standard definition (SD) devices so that all video appliances can be operated using one intuitive interface.
"The level of detail in Bosch HD images captures extensive information throughout the whole scene,
" Paul continues. "CCTV operators can recognise small features, such as faces or number plates, much more easily, and all live and recorded content can be examined much more closely by zooming in whilst still maintaining a sharp image. The widescreen format also captures more useable image content, reducing the amount of empty sky or foreground in a scene.
Like all Bosch products, the HD portfolio is thoroughly tested to deliver the highest reliability, keeping maintenance costs down and the system operating 24/7: "Bosch HD systems offer solid investment protection,
" Paul says. "Intuitive video management and user software simplifies training needs, further reducing the total cost of ownership for security systems. And existing investment is protected as HD with SD devices can be added and easily mixed.
Leading the way in interoperability, all Bosch HD cameras conform to the ONVIF standard, ensuring they integrate easily with third-party security solutions. From motion detection to advanced Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA), Paul believes that Bosch' HD technology provides outstanding support to any security team: "HD-optimised video analysis reinforces your security capability, ensuring optimum monitoring and alarm performance,
" he concludes.
