The Bosch Recording Station software is pre-installed on a dedicated Appliance that is ready to go out of the box. The application provides a simple to install and intuitive to use solution for managing multiple locations.

The BRS Appliance is available as stand-alone, all-inone tower PCs and rack-mounted server units supporting RAID5 redundancy, and comes pre-licensed for 8 IP cameras. Tower units support recording and playback. Rack versions provide recording only, playback is possible via a separate viewing station' on a standard PC with BRS Viewer installed.

Building on DiBos technology the Recording Station uses Bosch's proven video management, recording and communications technology and takes IP based video surveillance to a new level. It forms an integral part of overall security solutions for many applications - including banks, large retailers, railway stations, city centers, industrial facilities and office buildings.

With Recording Station you can retrieve live and recorded video from anywhere in the network. Whether they are on site or at a remote network location, authorized personnel have quick, convenient access to all information making Recording Station the perfect solution for surveillance over distributed networks. Recording Station supports live viewing and recording at any resolution up to 2048 x 1536 pixels (3 Megapixel) including HD widescreen resolutions. It manages up to 64 IP video sources (Bosch and 3rd party) that are compatible to the following video compression standards: Bosch H.264, Bosch MPEG-4, Axis MPEG-4, MJPEG via HTTP and TFTP.

The unique, scalable GUI allows live and recorded images from multiple remote stations to be viewed from a single PC (receiver station). With this powerful function, security managers can monitor and supervise multiple locations simultaneously even if remote stations are connected through a WAN. Each camera offers in-window pan/tilt/zoom functionality from local or remote facilities. Images are displayed with date/time, location, camera name and the status of connected devices such as detectors and sensors.

Recording Station can be programmed to respond to specific situations and events automatically. In response to alarms, the system can be programmed to record at a higher quality and to transmit images or messages to security personnel. Playback is easy thanks to familiar search and navigation functions using a graphical timeline control. Users can playback recordings from multiple stations simultaneously and synchronously on one interface. Fast, powerful image search functions like the Smart Motion Search eliminate time consuming manual searches.

Export the video to an archive with the push of a single button - all digitally watermarked to ensure the credibility of your recordings. You can even export multiple cameras from different recorders. Use the scheduled export to recurrently backup your recordings on various storage devices, such as external disk arrays and NAS (network attached storage).

To ensure the highest security, all system access is controlled by multiple user authorization levels which determine individual permissions for each user to a very high level of detail. These authorization levels determine what a user can do in the system. Elements such as camera viewing and control, playback and export of recordings, as well the types of system configuration settings that are allowed can be individually configured.

Events, such as login, log-off, status changes, image transmission, video export, and system shutdown are logged in a database and can be easily imported to spreadsheet programs like MS Excel. Video authenticationis built-in to detect any attempt to alter the recorded images.

Recording Station provides various interfaces to other systems such as Bosch access solutions and alarm panels, as well as external systems like ATM and POS terminals, fire alarm systems, number plate capture equipment and video content analysis solutions. Integration with other security and building management systems can be accomplished using the VideoSDK providing a complete toolbox of modules for playback, searching, viewing and much, much more. Use Recording Station in a LAN environment with Bosch Video Management System to advance to a true enterprise solution which provides a comprehensive feature set such as centralized user, event and alarm management, multi-monitor workstations with zoom able sitemaps and CCTV keyboard control.
