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.
