The Bosch Divar digital versatile recorder series are extremely compact, low profile units that combine advanced digital recording and multiplexing, not only saving space, but ensuring integrated functionality. The Divar has been designed with both operator and installer in mind, by making the unit easy to use and install, and maintenancefree. The Divar allows simultaneous recording and playback of video images. “Overwrite protection” of marked video clips prevents the loss of vital material.

The images per second (IPS) record rate and image quality are selectable for each connected camera. This makes it possible to prioritize recording between high-risk areas and low risk areas. By having a higher refresh rate only for critical or high-risk security areas, considerable hard disk space can be saved. Recording rates of 50 IPS (PAL) or 60 IPS (NTSC) are guaranteed, without the need for synchronization.

As well as control of external alarm inputs, the Divar's motion detector triggers an alarm when movement in a user-definable area of the image is detected.

Smart motion search can be used for easy retrieval of motion that has taken place within a user-specified part of the image during a specified time-span.

The Divar is expandable with an optional keyboard, allowing AutoDome control as well as enhanced playback control.

Where video is required for evidence of an incident, it is simple to archive the video with a dedicated PC player for playback of the secure video files to a DVD or CD with the internal DVD writer. The Divar uses video authentication that can automatically detect any alteration of the recorded video.

For easy installation, a “Quick install” feature is included. Additionally, on-screen menus are provided in eight languages and context sensitive help is always available by just pushing the yellow button. A configuration tool is supplied to simplify setting up a system using a PC.

Owing to its high degree of integrated functionality, the Divar can be the central element in a self-contained security system with up to 256 cameras. Because the Divar is fully compatible with any standard 10/100 Base-T network, it is ideal for distributed security surveillance systems.

An optional ATM/POS bridge enables financial transaction details to be recorded together with video. This makes the Divar suitable for use at cash dispensers, check out desks and other similar applications where it is sometimes necessary to verify or identify what happened during a particular transaction.

Full control is also possible when using the user-friendly Control Center software that allows remote viewing of live and recorded video from multiple Divars at the same time. This makes it ideal for multiple location systems such as chains of shops or fast food outlets.

Where additional storage is required, optional storage arrays can be connected to expand the storage capacity. It is even possible to calculate the required capacity by visiting and use the Divar storage calculator.
