Product Code: PB-DHR16A30A


The Divar XF offers top-of-the-line performance and adaptability. Equipped with four front-replaceable HD drives and extensive integration features, the XF is ideal for medium to large-scale or growing systems. Divar XF's superior image quality and compression gets the most out of CCTV images.

High performance:

With real-time viewing, recording, and playback in genuine 4CIF resolution, the Divar XF captures all the details. More detail typically means increased bandwidth, bigger storage requirements, and increased costs - but not with the Divar XF. Bosch's advanced H.264 compression technology used in the Divar XF reduces bandwidth and storage needs by up to 30% compared to traditional MPEG-4 systems.

Embedded design:

The embedded design of the Divar XF offers a higher level of security against network attacks than traditional systems and has lower maintenance requirements. The security of recordings remains high, while the need to install software patches and anti-virus updates is eliminated. Simple to set up and operate, the integrated architecture of the Divar XF makes life easier for both installers and users.

Power to adapt:

The world of CCTV is changing - IP is replacing the analog standard in many areas. Divar XF has the power to adapt to this changing environment. Divar XF is the ideal choice for growing applications which use a mix of analog and IP cameras. It can record 8 or 16 analog cameras and an additional 8 IP channels, all with a real-time frame rate at 4CIF resolution. With the keyboard loop-through feature, up to 16 Divar XF recorders can be controlled from a single IntuiKey keyboard, creating a cost effective solution for applications with up to 384 cameras. Bosch's VideoSDK provides a complete toolbox of modules for playback, searching, viewing live images, and more - simplifying integration to other surveillance systems. The VideoSDK even allows integration with specialized software tools such as fraud detection programs for retail applications. Controlling Divar XF can be automated using CLI (Command Language Interface) commands. This allows Divar XF to be interfaced with external software (over RS232 or IP), which is typically used to sense alarms or handle access control on an existing (embedded) computer system. Functions include front panel emulation, configuration, and viewing status information. For instructions on how to use the CLI, please refer to the documentation on the Bosch Security Systems website.


Divar XF's four internal hard drives can be accessed via the front without opening the unit, simplifying service and making it easy to add additional storage on-site when needed. The disks can also be configured as a RAID 4 array for extra reliability. Export recordings by simply downloading them to a USB memory device, burning them to the optional built-in DVD recorder, or export them remotely via the Control Center software. Divar XF makes it easy to manage and transport images. The Divar XF's intuitive interface with clear, menu-driven options is quick to learn and easy to use. Choose from a selection of control devices, including a mouse or CCTV keyboard. Flexibility is also abundant with Divar XF's extensive range of advanced functionality. Other convenient features include remote playback capability and dual VGA monitor support.
