Bosch upgrades Allegiant video control system

FAIRPORT, N.Y. – Bosch Security Systems, a full-line manufacturer of high-quality security solutions, announced today the upgrade of its LTC 8900 Series Allegiant Video Switcher/Control System with the introduction of a new PC platform that delivers higher security, greater processing power and enhanced reliability.

The LTC 8900 Series Allegiant is now based on the Windows XP operating system for support of Microsoft’s latest security features. The new PC platform also offers a Solid State hard drive, which provides greater reliability over magnetic hard drives. By upgrading to a Solid State hard drive, Bosch aims to better protect customers’ investments in the Allegiant system, which is already recognized for its dependability – functioning consistently for up to 15 years in many installations.

A flexible and scalable system, the LTC 8900 Series Allegiant supports more than 6,000 camera inputs, 512 monitor outputs and up to 120 keyboards to meet the requirements of a wide range of customer applications. The powerful full matrix switcher now offers greater processing power and can display video from any camera on any monitor connected to the system as well as provide control of PTZ camera capabilities.

The upgraded switcher/control is backward compatible with all installed LTC 8900 Series systems and uses the same amount of rack space as its predecessor – giving end users the option to easily upgrade their existing systems.
