Bosch debuts 700 HD Series video recorders

Systems provide simple set up and management


FAIRPORT, N.Y. – Bosch Security Systems, Inc. announced today the release of the 700 HD Series Hybrid and Network Recorders. The new systems support real-time recording at resolutions up to 1080p, are easy to install and manage, and provide a low cost of ownership.

For simple set up that is 50 percent faster than traditional PC-based video recording solutions, the Divar 700 HD Series recorders feature fully-automated device discovery and assignment, built-in wizards, and an embedded design. Customers can also manage IP camera profiles and features, such as motion detection, within the recorders themselves, eliminating the need for configuration through a PC.

Support for the free Bosch Video Client software enables centralized control of the 700 Series HD across up to 3,000 sites. Display live and recorded standard or high definition video as full-screen or simultaneously in multi-screen displays from any location via a local or wide area network or the Internet. With a built-in web application, customers can also view video from the recorders using a web browser for added flexibility.

The 700 Series uses H.264 compression for reduced storage requirements—lowering the cost of ownership of the recorders while maintaining maximum detail in video images. The internal hard disks, with available RAID-4 technology, assure maximum protection of recorded video and deliver uninterrupted system reliability even in the event of a drive failure. The drives are accessible from the front of the unit for easier servicing and for adding larger-capacity disks when needed.

Text data can be integrated with video recorded by the 700 Series, which is useful with license plate recognition systems for parking lot management and in stolen vehicle searches. Text support can also help end users reduce shrinkage and detect fraud through remote monitoring capabilities for ATM or point-of-sale transactions.

The 700 HD Series Hybrid Recorder is designed for applications using a mix of analog and IP cameras. A powerful and scalable video management solution, it supports up to 16 analog cameras and 16 IP cameras, including high definition and standard definition devices.

For end users with dedicated IP video applications, the 700 HD Series Network Recorder is an all-in-one IP video management solution containing everything to store and manage surveillance video in a single, easy-to-install box. This Network Recorder supports up to 32 high definition or standard definition IP cameras.

The 700 HD Series Hybrid and Network 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.
