Bosch 700 Series Hybrid Recorders supported by Genetec software

The Bosch 700 Series Hybrid Recorders are now supported by the latest versions of Genetec’s advanced IP video surveillance solutions—Omnicast 4.8 and the soon to be released Security Center 5.1. This integration allows customers to view live and recorded standard definition video from the 700 Series recorders within the Omnicast and Security Center user interfaces. Customers can see live and recorded video, control pan-tilt-zoom cameras connected to the 700 Series, and manage video quality settings of live streams using Omnicast and Security Center.

"Bosch works closely with Genetec to ensure a variety of hardware offerings are supported by the Omnicast and Security Center software platforms—providing customers with greater choice in video system design. Genetec is the first third-party VMS to support the 700 Series," said George Maroussis, product marketing manager, Bosch Security Systems.

The 700 Series H.264 digital recorders support up to 32 IP or 16 analog cameras. With real-time 4CIF recording, the recorders are ideal for applications where end users require a high level of detail in their surveillance images, including retail, banking, corrections, and transportation and commercial buildings.

The recorders also feature fully-automated device discovery and assignment, built-in set-up wizards and an embedded design to make system installation 50 percent faster than traditional PC-based video recording solutions.

They join a broad range of IP products from Bosch—including high definition cameras, video encoders and Intelligent Video Analysis software—that are supported by the Omnicast and Security Center platforms.

"Genetec is very proud to be the first VMS provider to support the 700 Series. Genetec and Bosch will continue to work together on the evolution of our product lines to continue to offer wider possibilities to our customers," said Morgan Pasnon, senior technology alliance manager at Genetec.
