Bosch launches Video Recorder 400 Series

Fairport, N.Y. - Bosch Security Systems, Inc. announces the Video Recorder 400 Series - an affordable, easy-to-use video recorder that is ready straight from the box. Supporting up to four analog cameras, the recorder is ideal for residences, small retail shops and offices that require a professional CCTV system without high installation costs.

The Video Recorder 400 Series is a complete video management solution with intuitive menus and setup wizards for easy operation with no training required. Simply connect the cameras and power, enter the local time and language, and the unit begins recording automatically.

Customers can operate the Video Recorder 400 Series off-site using a built-in web viewer, which allows for remote viewing, playback, control and configuration. In the event of an alarm, the system automatically sends an instant alert via email - helping customers respond faster to security concerns. In addition, comprehensive search and playback functions, including a Smart Search utility, quickly locate recorded events by looking for changes in selected areas.

The 400 Series uses H.264 compression technology, making it possible for customers to store at least 30 days of video at the highest recording quality. An optional DVD burner also enables video clips to be burned directly to disk without the need for a PC.
Recording rates and quality settings up to 4CIF are configurable per channel to meet customer's specific needs. Dual streaming capability supports multiple video and audio signals for greater flexibility when viewing over a network or the Internet, while simultaneously providing live multi-screen viewing and playback.

The 400 Series can also control pan/tilt/zoom equipment, including Bosch AutoDome Modular and AutoDome Easy II cameras, and supports the Bosch WZ series of affordable day/night cameras for a complete, cost-effective solution.
