Bosch Video Jet X10/X20/X40 SN Video Encoder

Bosch Encoder

Key features:

  • High quality MPEG-4 video over IP
  • Units with one, two, or four video inputs
  • Built-in intelligence at the edge
  • Network attached RAID storage via iSCSI
  • Local recording on CF card or USB hard drive

The Bosch Video Jet X SN encoders belong to a family of high performance, single, dual, or quad input CCTV video encoders that feature DVD-like quality MPEG-4 video, at up to 30 images per second, over IP networks. The units support Pal/NTSC sources and provide bi-directional audio communication in parallel to video. They are built into a housing that can be easily wall-mounted or rack-mounted. These powerful and flexible devices represent the cutting edge of high-performance video over IP for CCTV today.

View the VideoJet X SN encoder video on a PC using a Web Browser, in the Bosch Video Management system, or integrate it into another video management system. 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.

When one or two inputs are used, the encoders deliver MPEG-4 video over IP at a full frame rate of 25 (PAL) or 30 (NTSC) images per second with up to 4CIF resolution on every channel. If four inputs are used, the maximum frame rate is 12.5/15 images per second at a 4CIF resolution and no dual streaming is possible.

With built-in video content analysis, Video Jet X SN encoders reinforce the intelligence at the edge concept where edge devices become increasingly intelligent. The Video Jet X SN comes with built-in motion detection This motion detection algorithm is based on pixel change and includes object size filtering capabilities and sophisticated tamper detection capabilities.
