The DVR-451-04A050 from Bosch is a 451 Series DVR, DVD, 4 channel, 500 GB. The Bosch Video Recorder 400 Series is a 4 channel digital recorder that uses the latest H.264 compression technology. With a built-in web server for browser-based video management, the 400 Series is a fully integrated, stand-alone video solution that's ready to go, straight out of the box.

Available in basic and advanced versions, the 400 Series features a highly reliable embedded design that minimizes maintenance and operational costs. The basic version provides one audio input, while the advanced version has four audio inputs and a DVD writer.

The Bosch 400 Series takes advantage of the latest H.264 compression technology that allows for more efficient video compression. This reduces the amount of storage and bandwidth needed while also producing better image quality. The 400 Series records multiple video and audio signals while simultaneously providing live multi-screen viewing and playback. Comprehensive search and playback functions provide quick recall and viewing of recorded video.


Ease of use is key to the 400 Series design. Simply connect the cameras, apply power, and the unit begins recording automatically. All recording takes place in the background with no operator intervention required.

The use of H.264 compression reduces the file size of recordings by as much as 30% compared to standard MPEG-4, without sacrificing image quality. The Bosch Video Recorder 400 Series can record at up to 25 (PAL) / 30 (NTSC) images per second, per channel at CIF resolution. Recording at 2CIF and 4CIF resolution is also possible by reducing the recording image rate settings. The recording rate and quality are individually configurable per channel for maximum flexibility.

The recording archives are split into two partitions. Alarm recordings (input and motion) are stored on one partition, while continuous recordings are stored on a separate one. An overwrite mode can be selected separately for each partition if required.

Dome Control:

The 400 Series can control pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) equipment via RS-232 and RS-485 serial communications. PTZ devices, including the Bosch AutoDome Modular and AutoDome Easy II, are supported.


All models have extensive alarm handling functions and telemetry control. Alarm functions include motion detection in user-definable areas of the image on any camera input.

Local control and operation:

The unit can be easily operated and programmed via the onscreen display menu system using either the front panel control keys, the mouse, or the remote control. Two monitor outputs provide full-screen, quad (main monitor only), and sequenced viewing.

Looping auto-terminating video inputs and outputs, audio inputs and output, and alarm inputs and outputs are located on the rear panel. The VGA connector provides an output for monitor A (main monitor). A CVBS video output is also provided for monitor B (spot monitor). Monitor A displays live and playback in full-screen or quad digital pictures that can be frozen and zoomed. Monitor B displays live fullscreen pictures.

Remote control and operation:

Use the built-in web application via a network for live viewing, playback, and configuration; there is no need to install any additional software for viewing. Four users can control the Bosch 400 Series simultaneously. The Bosch 400 Series includes an authenticity check for both local and remote playback, ensuring recording integrity. The Bosch 400 Series Archive Player is provided for playback of secure video files.
