Bosch introduces HD video portfolio

Company offers complete HD solution: cameras, recording and monitors


FAIRPORT, N.Y. – Delivering on its uncompromising vision for high-quality security solutions, Bosch Security Systems, Inc. is launching a high definition (HD) video portfolio to address the growing demand for HD surveillance systems. Complete with fixed and pan-tilt-zoom cameras, video management software, storage solutions, and monitors, this new portfolio takes image quality to the next level. With Bosch HD video from scene to screen, operators can distinguish small features that are important for facial recognition and similar applications.

“Now is the ideal time for introducing a complete HD solution for capturing, viewing, storing and managing HD video,” said Gert van Iperen, director of Bosch Security Systems. “And, all the products in our Bosch HD portfolio are specifically designed to deliver HD image quality. They feature advanced H.264 video compression, intuitive operator software, ONVIF conformance and a 16:9 aspect ratio.”

Bosch HD cameras – including the AutoDome pan-tilt-zoom family, the Dinion and FlexiDome series of day/night fixed cameras, and the IP Camera 200 Series for small businesses – provide 720p or 1080p resolution and offer Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA) software to automatically process video signals and alert operators to potential security risks. The higher pixel densities captured by the HD cameras enables optimized performance of IVA with improved detection for loitering, line crossing and other potential threats.

The intuitive software offerings from Bosch allow security personnel to manage both HD and standard definition (SD) appliances seamlessly in the same system, providing ease of use for operators and allowing integrators to choose the appropriate imaging solution for each location in an application. For small systems, Bosch Video Client is provided free for up to 16 cameras and can be expanded to up to 64 channels with add-on licenses. The Bosch Video Management System is a comprehensive solution for large demanding deployments that integrates, manages and simplifies all surveillance functions and operations.

The scalable recording solutions from Bosch allow customers to easily extend their security systems to support HD, keeping initial investment costs down and allowing for further expansion. Customers can add the Bosch Recording Station to simultaneously support HD and SD video sources. Video Recording Manager allows video to be sent directly to an iSCSI storage array without any intervening hardware or software. H.264 Main Profile compression reduces storage consumption by up to 50 percent, compared with MPEG-4, while ensuring every detail in the image is captured without any compromise in frame rate.

For viewing video, Bosch professional HD LCD monitors automatically adapt to the input resolution of the incoming video signal, provide full HD resolution and support a 16:9 image format for improved situational awareness.
