New generation Bosch digital recorders

February 2008 Surveillance

The Divar MR digital versatile recorder (DVR), delivers realtime recording and playback in CIF resolution, as well as high resolution live viewing. 4CIF can also be used for applications where even greater detail is needed. Excellent image quality is complemented by highly efficient MPEG-4 compression, reducing storage space and cost when saving video. Video can be archived to memory devices such as USB sticks or an optional DVD writer. An archive player allows exported video to be played back on any PC without installing additional software. Image authentication means archived video can be used in court.

Whether part of an integrated or standalone system, the Divar MR offers trouble-free installation, operation and management. Numerous methods for control and customisation include the Bosch IntuiKey keyboard, a mouse, an IR remote control and the unit's front-panel controls, which include a convenient jog dial. In addition, the system includes Divar MR Control Center software for complete remote management of the system including live viewing and control, playback, configuration and remote alarm notification. With Divar MR Control Center all operation and control can be centralised to create a highly scalable video management solution. For added convenience, users can also view live images using Internet Explorer.

A host of useful features include instant playback functions, one-touch record, e-mail-on-event, and overwrite protection to keep important recordings safe. Past and present events can be compared easily by viewing live pictures and playback simultaneously. And searching through recorded video is aided by a 'Smart Search' feature, which automatically looks for changes within a selected part of a scene.

The embedded design of the Divar MR offers a higher level of security against network attacks than traditional systems and has a lower maintenance requirement. Divar MR maintains the security of recordings while eliminating the hassle of software patches and anti-virus installs.

The Divar MR's integrated architecture is simple to set up and operate. Interface options for various external devices cover both Bosch and third-party PTZ cameras.

The Bosch Divar MR family comprises eight and 16 channel models with a variety of hard drive capacities and, if required, an internal DVD writer. Affordable yet packed with convenient and powerful features, the Divar MR makes an efficient DVR management solution for schools, hotels, apartment buildings, retail premises and many other applications.
