Benefits

 

Intuitive to use

The Configuration Manager Wizard lets you quickly and easily configure your cameras for most common lighting conditions. However, should you have specific requirements, you can still adjust the individual settings on each camera to obtain optimized results for your application. The drag and drop interface makes it easy to set up your camera views. In addition, cameras with PTZ capability can be controlled simply by clicking and dragging the mouse in the cameo or by using the PTZ control console.

Live video and recording

On a single PC monitor, BVC can display live video from up to twenty SD (Standard Definition) and HD (High Definition) cameras simultaneously. Your control extends to recording video, either locally on a camera’s memory card or via the Bosch VRM (Video Recording Manager). BVC’s configuration wizard also helps you to set up VRM recording. In playback mode you can display recordings of up to four cameras simultaneously, search for alarm and motion events, and export relevant video footage.

Find events fast

BVC’s electronic zoom can be used to examine critical areas of recorded scenes more closely. You can carry out motion, alarm and forensic search on recorded video and export important video: either in WMA format or in the native Bosch format, which benefits from having legal authentication status.

 

Application

 

Any entry-level installation up to 64 IP channels can benefit from the simple, intuitive surveillance viewing solution offered by Bosch Video Client software. Typical applications include retail stores and petrol stations.
