The Bosch MBV-BPRO-40 Video Management System v0.4 (Professional Edition) is an enterprise IP video security solution that allows for seamless management of digital video, audios, and data across any IP network. This 8-channel system is compatible with 2 workstations (sold separately) and comes with a DVR and a keyboard. 

The Bosch Video Management System is installed on a Microsoft Windows operating system. The included software components can be run together on a single PC for small systems or on separate PCs and servers for large systems. The Bosch VRM (Video Recording Manager) provides a distributed network video recorder solution, eliminating the need for dedicated NVRs. The VRM provides load balancing and failover for the iSCSI storage and makes it easy to add additional iSCSI storage later on. It also introduces the concept of a storage virtualization layer. This abstraction layer enables the VRM to manage all 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. The Bosch VMS (Video Management System) is a compact, single site system with support for 1 to 2,000 IP cameras / encoders per management server (up to 10,000 in enterprise systems). The VMS supports 100 workstations. This system supports BIS-BVMS connectivity. With support for up to 10,000 cameras, this multi site-single customer system is suitable for metro, airport, and other large industrial facilities. It comprises individually configured servers and combined monitoring in Operator Client.
