These ultra-compact IP video encoders support two video channels that can convert both PAL and NTSC signals into MPEG-4 video, at up to 30 frames per second on each channel. A web browser and/or the VIDOS video management software can receive and display the images. The VIP X2 is available as an audio model, VIP X2A providing bi-directional audio communication in parallel to video. Besides the standard line-level interfaces for both audio channels, it has integrated amplifiers to connect a microphone and speaker to channel 1 directly. Alarm inputs and control output
Viewing View the video on a PC using VIDOS, the Bosch comprehensive video management system, or in a web browser. Integrate it into other video management systems using the Bosch Video SDK.
Present images clearly on analog CCTVs, large, flat-screen monitors or on TVs by routing the IP video to a highperformance VIP XD video decoder, or a VIDOS monitor wall.
Recording The VIP X2 has many recording options:
• locally on a USB hard disk,
• on network-attached iSCSI devices,
• centrally, using network video recorders.
If iSCSI RAID 5 storage is available, it enables the VIP X2 to act as a conventional DVR, as well as streaming highperformance live video across the network.
Dual Streaming The VIP X2 uses dual streaming to generate two independent IP video streams per channel. This allows viewing and recording at two different quality levels, saving disk space and bandwidth. Program it to send out e-mail with JPEG images attached when triggered by an alarm.
Increased intelligence The VIP X2 supports increased intelligence at the edge that includes detection of video loss, masking, hooding, defocusing, and diverted camera. These detection features provide tamper detection for various unified picture causes. Bosch offers Intelligent Video Motion Detection (IVMD) as an additional licensable option. This provides video content analysis (VCA) directly at the video input for even more advanced VCA.
These powerful devices represent the cutting edge of high performance Video over IP for CCTV today.
