Bosch MBV-XCHAN-30 overview

  • 1Description

The Bosch MBV-XCHAN-30 1CH Expansion for Video Management System Software v3 is a unique enterprise IP video security solution that provides seamless management of digital video, audio, and data across any IP network. It is designed to work with Bosch CCTV products as part of a total video security management system. You can integrate your existing components into one easy-to-manage system, or use our full-line capabilities and benefit from a complete security solution based on cutting-edge technology and years of experience. The Bosch Video Management System is installed on a Microsoft Windows Operating System. 

The Bosch Video Management System contains the following software components: 

• Central Server software provides management, monitoring, and control of the entire system 

• Video Recording Manager (VRM) and Network Video Recorder (NVR) services provide recording and playback management of video, audio, and data 

• Configuration Client software provides the user interface for system configuration and management 

• Operator Client software provides the user interface for system monitoring and operation 

These software components can be run together on a single PC for small systems or on separate PCs and servers for large systems. Bosch Video Recording Manager (VRM) provides a Distributed Network Video Recorder solution, eliminating the need for dedicated NVRs, and signaling the second generation of IP Network video recording. The VRM provides load balancing and failover for the iSCSI storage and makes it easy to add additional iSCSI storage later on. VRM introduces the concept of a storage virtualization layer. This abstraction layer enables VRM to manage all of the individual disk arrays in the entire system as a single “virtual” common pool of storage, which is intelligently allocated as needed. The usage of multiple client workstations offers great scalability.
