Bosch Security Systems, Inc. has introduced a scalable internet-protocol (IP) video management solution that records up to 32 high definition (HD) or standard definition video sources per station, the company says in a written statement.
The new Bosch Recording Station also integrates access solutions, alarm panels and external components such as license plate capture equipment, into a complete solution, the firm says.
In addition, the system’s software and seamless interfacing with security and building management systems makes the Bosch Recording Station ideal for many applications, including banks, large retail stores, airports, railway stations, city centers and industrial facilities, it says.
With flexible network access options, including unlimited remote receiver stations, the Bosch Recording Station is ideal for distributed network surveillance, the company says. Live and recorded video can be retrieved from anywhere in the network to give authorized personnel access to the information they need, whether on site or at a remote location.
The intuitive user interface allows images from multiple remote stations to be viewed from a single receiver station, allowing security managers to supervise various locations simultaneously via “local area network” (LAN) or low bandwidth “wide area network” (WAN) connections, the company says.
Recordings from different stations can be replayed simultaneously in one interface, and functions like the “smart motion search” will help locate important video quickly. Operators can export video to an archive by pressing a single button, and digital watermarks ensure recording credibility and scheduled exports also enable regular back up of recordings on various storage devices, including external disk arrays and network attached storage, the company says.
The Bosch Recording Station supports H.264, MPEG-4 and JPEG IP video sources and is capable of displaying video at any resolution up to 3 megapixel, including HD widescreen.
