New features to Bosch Security Systems’ DiBos family of Digital Video Recorder and Transmission Systems for CCTV surveillance have enhanced performance and ease of use.
The new MPEG-4 technology provides smaller file sizes with higher frame rates and better image quality. Data storage efficiency has increased providing substantial savings in archiving costs.
The new Pentaplex feature allows the connection of a total of 62 cameras to one DiBos system to give maximum flexibility – the DiBos can view live images, record, search and view recorded images and download via local network or Internet and export images to external recording devices.
The new user interface not only gives a sophisticated ‘look and feel’, but also improves ease of use. DiBos is designed for fast and convenient installation with ‘plug-and-play’ set-up – simply unpack the system from its box, connect the cameras and switch on. DiBos then shows all cameras connected to it and recording can start.
An additional feature is the unique Bilinx interface. Bilinx uses conventional coax, unshielded twisted pair (UTP) and fibre-optic video transmission links. DiBos has the Bilinx capability integrated: it enables the user to remote customize camera settings and to control Autodome cameras, only via coax cable. No additional control cables or converters are necessary. This saves installation, set-up time and costs too. These are also major advantages in installations where cameras are mounted in difficult-to-access places or where operation would otherwise be interrupted by servicing.
DiBos is available in two main versions. The 19-inch rack-mount version is for larger installations requiring up to 62 video channels (30 analogue and 32 network), up to 42 audio channels (10 analogue and 32 network) and up to 1,600 GB internal storage capacity. The DiBos Micro is a desktop unit for installations that require up to 20 video channels, 12 audio channels and 400 GB internal storage capacity. The DiBos Receiver/IP-Recorder receives alarm images from remote DiBos units or IP network devices over a LAN, ISDN or the public telephone network.
