It is about solutions - not just components

February 2005 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

In remote video transmission, every application is unique. Individual requirements of the user, specific site conditions and pre-installed systems constantly represent new challenges. The better and the more precisely all contributing factors are understood, the more satisfactory the results will be.

Digital technologies have already changed many aspects of our daily lives. Just think about mobile phones, CDs and DVDs, not to mention the Internet. Going digital often means new qualities or features, impossible to obtain with analog technologies. The same holds true for the area of remote video transmission, once digital, distances do not matter any more and live video streams are accessible from anywhere around the globe. What is even better, digital technology is making devices intelligent so cameras will learn to distinguish between relevant motions and they will assist you in screening visual scenes for worrisome events and let you do things more meaningful than spending your time watching. Bosch Security Systems' vision is to bring digital technology to the world of remote video surveillance.

"You can build on VCS products for large and complex digital video networks," says Tony Janse, product manager, Bosch Security Systems. Migration from analog to digital one piece at a time is also possible. "Even a single product will help to reduce cost or enable features," he explains. Should you want to transmit video to a different site, there is no need to dig the ground for dedicated video cables. Just put it on the network. Digital storage of video is affordable and maintenance free so there is no degradation in quality nor is there wear and tear on equipment. Access to archived footage is straightforward and easy so there is no wading through hours or days of recordings. Intelligent investments are the key to reducing costs.

From the ultra-compact classic line to the more intrinsic professional line it offers its transceiver modules for the integration in existing system components - the easiest way to get from analog to digital video support.
