Bosch launches storage calculator

Calculating storage for a CCTV application is always a challenging job. To ease this challenge, Bosch Security Systems is launching an easy-to-use tool to calculate the storage needed to record video via its range of CCTV recorders. The updated storage calculator offers easy storage calculation for the:

- 400 Series Video Recorder
- 600 Series Video Recorder (Divar MR)
- 700 Series Hybrid and Network Recorder
- DiBos Hybrid Recorder.

The storage calculator offers the possibility to calculate storage based on a number of advanced or basic settings such as number of cameras, image resolution, images per second, audio recording, number of hours for recording, and retention time for IP and analog cameras.

For example, it shows that for 8 TB of internal storage the new 700 Series H.264 Hybrid and Network Recorder can have an estimated 45 days of continuous recording at the highest possible resolution (4CIF/D1) for a total of 32 cameras.

The Bosch storage calculation and selection tool can be downloaded free of charge from the Bosch Security Systems online product catalog at
