The Bosch NBC-225-P IP camera is a ready-to-use, complete network video surveillance system inside a compact camera. This camera brings Bosch’s high-performance technology into the realm of small office and retail businesses by offering a cost-effective solution for a broad range of applications.
To use the camera as a stand-alone video surveillance system, simply take it out of the box, install it, and it operates straight away. In this mode, no additional equipment is required.
For medium-to-large-scale or growing systems, the NBC-225-P IP camera easily integrates with the Bosch Divar XF Hybrid H.264 recorder. It uses H.264 compression technology to give you clear images while reducing bandwidth and storage by up to 30%.
The Bosch NBC-225-P IP camera delivers the clearest images and most accurate colours within its class. Progressive scan ensures moving objects are always sharp.
Dual streaming allows a data stream to be encoded simultaneously according to two different, individually customized settings. Two types of streams can serve different purposes. For example, use H.264 stream for local recording and viewing, and the M-JPEG stream to provide compatibility with legacy DVRs.
A removable SD/SDHC card offers edge recording inside the NBC-225-P IP camera. This SD card not only saves network “bandwidth but also reduces the requirement for a high-capacity hard disk or DVR. When used with an SD card, the NBC-225-P IP camera is a complete self-contained surveillance system without the need for additional equipment.
The NBC-225-P IP camera can also be used with an iSCSI server connected via the network to store long-term recordings.
The bundled PC surveillance software offers a user-friendly interface to support easy installation and configuration. A wizard allows the configuration of multiple cameras simultaneously using an auto detection device. Multiple cameras can be monitored in one screen and video clips on SD card can be archived and searched in a single application.
Two-way audio allows remote users to listen in on an area and communicate messages to visitors or intruders via an external loudspeaker (not included). Audio detection can be used to generate an alarm if needed.
A wide range of configuration options is available for alarms signalling camera tampering. A built-in algorithm for detecting movement in the video can also be used for alarm signalling.
The latest Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) standard ensures compatibility with other surveillance products. The NBC-225-P IP camera is ONVIF-ready. This will contribute to a reduction in a future upgrade or migration costs.
Power for the camera can be supplied via a Power-over-Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af) compliant network cable connection. With this configuration, only a single cable connection is required to view, power, and control the camera.
