The Bosch VIP X1600 is a high-performance modular multichannel CCTV video encoder. The VIP X1600 is accommodating up to four hot-swappable video modules, each with four analog video inputs. Video-audio modules are also available. Having a modular construction, expanding a system is simple and low cost. Simply plug in additional video or video-audio modules at any time, without interrupting the operation of existing channels.
The VIP X1600 delivers MPEG-4 video over IP at a rate of 25 images (PAL) or 30 images (NTSC) per second at 2CIF or 2/3 D1 resolution, but is also capable of providing 4CIF/Full D1 resolution at 12.5/15 images per second for every video channel. For those inputs, where ultimate performance is required, full 4CIF 25/30 images per second video is available when alternate channels on an input module are used.
The video can be viewed on a PC using VIDOS, the Bosch comprehensive video management system, or in a simple Web browser such as Internet Explorer. It can also be integrated into other video management systems using the Bosch Video SDK. By routing the IP video to a high performance VIP XD video decoder or a VIDOS Monitor Wall you can present the video with ultimate clarity on an analog CCTV or large, flat-screen VGA monitor or TV.
The VIP X1600 offers unparalleled recording options - locally, short-term RAM-based, network-attached utilizing iSCSI devices, and of course centrally using Network Video Recorders. The iSCSI RAID5 storage enables the VIP X1600 to act as a conventional DVR as well as to stream high performance live video across the network.
Designed for reliability, the VIP X1600 features hot swappable video modules, dual redundant power supply inputs, dual redundant network ports and fault-tolerant mass storage via iSCSI RAID5.
Dual streamingProduct Highlights
The VIP X1600 uses dual streaming to generate two independent IP video streams per channel. This allows viewing and recording at two different quality levels to save disk space and bandwidth. On alarm, it may send out email with JPEG images attached.
