Bosch DVR-650-16A overview

  • 1Description

The Bosch DVR-650-16A 16-Channel Real-Time DVR (Base Unit, No HDD) is a fully integrated, standalone recording solution that captures footage from up to 16 cameras. Thanks to a highly reliable embedded design, this DVR ensures reduced operational costs and is suitable for medium-sized applications.

This 650 series DVR can record multiple video and audio signals while simultaneously providing live multi-screen viewing and playback. H.264 compression technology allows you to save on storage space while also minimizing the bandwidth requirement for operations. The DVR is capable of recording real-time CIF resolution video at 30 IPS, and with reduced frame rates, it can also record 2CIF and 4CIF videos.

Multiple recording modes like motion detection, schedule, continuous, and manual recording allow you to easily configure your security system to record based on your requirements. With this DVR, no manual setup of the camera is required. You simply need to connect the camera to the DVR and it will automatically start recording. Furthermore, the recorded video feeds are displayed immediately on a connected monitor in full-screen, quad, multi-screen, and sequenced viewing modes.

When connected to a network via the Ethernet port, this real-time DVR allows you to remotely manage monitor, record, and change system settings from any PC on the network. Remote viewing of video feeds is possible via a compatible Web browser, and you can even control the DVR or monitor your premises when you’re away via your iDevice using the DVR viewer iPhone App provided.

This 16-channel DVR allows you to quickly locate a specific video clip with multiple search modes, and with the ability to search for motion within recorded footage, it lets you quickly scan through the day’s recording in a matter of minutes. Extensive alarm handling and telemetry control allow recording only when a user-defined alarm is triggered, such as on detection of motion in user-defined areas. Plus, it is also capable of sending notifications via email with a 10 sec video clip attached for your reference. Furthermore, you can create separate partitions for storing regular recorded material and for alarm-triggered video clips.

This DVR is not only extremely easy to install and configure, but also simple to operate; its intuitive on-screen display menu system can be operated via the front panel control keys, a mouse, an IntuiKey series keyboard (not included), or the supplied remote control. Loaded with an array of features such as 2 USB ports for backup, email notification, motion detection recording, comprehensive search and playback functions for quick recall, etc., this DVR adds to the operator’s convenience.
