Bosch's newest digital video recorder is made for closed-circuit television surveillance and security. It takes both analog cameras and IP network video, can be a network video recorder or a stand-alone unit, and can keep data on a built-in hard drive or optional external RAID. It can manage more than 60 incoming video streams with one to 30 images per second frame rates and 1, 2 or 4-CIF resolution. It supports JPEG compression, and also the newer MPEG-4 video compression, which allows better image quality, smaller file sizes, and more simultaneous network image transmission. It works with Bosch's MPEG-4 hardware video-over-IP encoders. It is installed with a "plug-and-play" configuration wizard. Hard-to-reach cameras are easily adjusted with Bosch's Bilinx bi-directional interface.
The new composites manufacturing innovation center is intended to be a source of grand challenges for industry, like the kind that got us to the moon under JFK. These aren't the words its new CEO Craig Blue used, but that's the idea and the vision behind the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI).
