The DIVAR AN 3000 Series 8-Channel DVR from Bosch is used for analog camera video management. It employs 960H high-resolution video recording, H.264 video compression, and G.711 audio compression to reduce bandwidth and storage requirements while delivering good image and audio quality. This digital recorder can capture multiple video and audio signals, and simultaneously provides live multi-screen views and playback. It also has expansive search and playback functions for quick recall and viewing of recorded video.

Simply connect the cameras and power, and the unit will record automatically with no further intervention required. H.264 compression significantly reduces file size of recordings without sacrificing image quality. It can record up to 25 (PAL) / 30 (NTSC) images per second, per channel at 960H resolution. 1
Dome control
Controls PTZ (Pan/Tilt/Zoom) equipment via RS 485 / RS 232 serial communication ports. Other PTZ devices, including the AutoDome PTZ Cameras from Bosch and a number of third-party domes, are supported.
Extensive alarm functions and telemetry controls, including local inputs and relay outputs, and motion detection in user-defined areas. If an alarm is detected, the device can send an e-mail notification and/or FTP push, display an on-screen message, and sound a buzzer and/or show a warning.
Local control
Can be operated and programmed via the on-screen display menu system using the supplied mouse, the front panel control keys, and the supplied remote control. Video, audio, and alarm inputs/outputs are located on the rear panel. The monitor outputs provide full screen, multi-screen, and sequenced viewing via three video connectors (BNC/VGA/HDMI) that provide simultaneous output for live display (with zoom) and playback (display can be frozen and zoomed), and a single BNC connector outputs to a separate monitor for live viewing.
Network Control
Provides software and a built-in web application for live viewing, playback, and configuration.
Includes an authenticity check for both local and remote archives, ensuring recording integrity. Has an Archive Player for playback of secure video files and to check if video is authentic.
