CHAPTER 1
Introduction
Digital video recorder for security applications
The Divar is a video recording system that can record multiple camera signals
while simultaneously providing live multiscreen viewing and playback. It
combines the functionality of a digital recorder with a multiplexer and a
switcher.
The unit has comprehensive search (including a smart motion search) and
playback facilities for viewing stored video. Once set up, all recording takes
place in the background without requiring operator intervention. Maximum
recording rates of 60 (NTSC) and 50 (PAL) images per second in total are
guaranteed with unsynchronized cameras. The recording rate and quality are
selectable per camera.
All models have extensive alarm handling functions and telemetry control.
Alarm functions include motion detection in user-definable areas of the image
on any camera input.
The unit can be easily operated and programmed via the front panel control
keys and on-screen display menu system. One monitor output provides fullscreen, quad and multiscreen viewing; another spot/alarm monitoring. A
keyboard can be connected for PTZ control and to improve the ease-of-use.
Via a network, the Control Center PC-application can be used for live viewing,
playback and configuration. Six simultaneous users can control multiple Divars.
The Divar includes an authenticity check for both local and remote playback. A
dedicated PC player is provided for playback of secure video files. Additionally,

triple (***) asterix respectively. If your unit has neither of these facilities, then
please skip these instructions.
ATM/POS transaction data can be recorded and viewed if the Divar is
connected to an ATM or POS device via an ATM/POS bridge unit and has a
license installed.
Features
Looping auto-terminating video inputs, video outputs, alarm inputs and outputs,
and remote control connectors are on the rear panel. The two monitor outputs
provide CVBS video signals in either NTSC or PAL. Monitor A displays fullscreen or multiscreen digital pictures that can be frozen and zoomed. Monitor B
displays live full-screen pictures.
Versions
There are various Divar models; 6-channel, 9-channel and 16-channel, each with
various storage capacities. In addition, a Divar can have one or both of the
following:
• An internal DVD writer
• Bilinx-enabled camera inputs
A Divar with an internal DVD writer allows you to make archives locally
without the need for a PC. The writer supports DVD+RW, DVD+R, CD-R and
CD-RW media.
A Divar Bilinx supports the use of Bilinx cameras. Bilinx technology embeds
control commands in the video signal enabling direct camera access and control
through a single video coaxial cable.
This manual describes the 16-channel version with an internal DVD writer and
Bilinx-enabled camera inputs.
Both 6-channel and 9-channel versions operate in exactly the same way except
that fewer cameras can be connected, there are fewer camera keys and the
number of multiscreen views is reduced. Instructions that only apply to the
internal DVD writer or Bilinx functionality are indicated by a double (**) or

Triggers and alarms
Various types of events can change the way the unit works. These events can be:
Background events
•
•
•
•
Triggers and alarms can change background tasks that you, as user, may not
even notice. Unit responses that are not visible to the user are, for example, a
change in recording speed, the activation of the output relay and event logging.
The unit can also be configured to record and automatically protect video clips
upon the activation of an alarm input. A trigger may change the way the camera
images are displayed on the monitors without requiring your intervention.
An alarm input signal applied to the unit.
Motion detection in a camera signal.
A loss of video from one of the cameras.
An internal alert from the unit itself.
The way the unit reacts to events depends on how it has been programmed.
An event can cause either a trigger or an alarm. A trigger can change the way
the unit works but does not require a response from the user. An alarm can also
change the way the unit works but, in addition, it usually activates several
indicators and requires that the user acknowledges the alarm situation.
The unit can react to an event in any one of the following ways:
Alarms

Hardware setup
This chapter contains detailed information about the connection of external
equipment to the unit. The connector types and their pin signals are described.
All the connectors are located at the rear panel of the unit.
Bosch Security Systems
Divar | Installation Manual | Hardware setup
Rack mounting
The Divar can be mounted in a 19-inch rack. A rack mounting kit is supplied
with the unit that includes:
• left and right rack mount ears
• four Torx screws with integrated lock washers.
• a Torx screwdriver
Mounting
1. Remove the four Torx screws (two on each side) located near the front panel
on the right and left side of the housing.
2. Attach the mounting ears to each side ensuring that the lip is under the unit.
Use the four Torx screws with lock washers and tighten securely.
EN | 4-2
Camera connections
Connect cameras to the unit using 75-ohm video coaxial cables with BNC
connectors. There are two BNC connectors for each camera. Either connector
can receive a camera's signal. This signal is looped-through (directly connected)
to the other connector, so that you can send the camera's signal to other
equipment. The camera input connectors are auto-terminating, so you do not
need to add a terminator to the output connector if no additional equipment is
connected.
If the camera signal is looped-through to additional equipment, make sure that
the end of the video line is terminated with a 75-ohm termination.
The Divar automatically configures itself as a PAL or NTSC unit. The unit
determines the standard by detecting the signal format of the first connected
camera (lowest camera input number).
Cameras that support the Bilinx communications standard can be directly
connected to the BNC connectors if your Divar version is Bilinx-enabled.
If Bilinx cameras are looped-through to multiple Divars, only one Divar is
allowed to have Bilinx enabled!
Specification
Input signal:
Embedded Bilinx command protocol (Divar Bilinx only).
3. Install the unit into the rack using the rack manufacturer’s supplied hardware.
When installing the assembly into the rack, be careful not to restrict airflow
around the vent holes located in the side panels or to exceed the recommended
operating temperature.

Monitor connections
Console port connection
Connect the unit to the monitors using 75-ohm video coaxial cables with BNC
connectors. The unit provides a 1Vpp CVBS signal.
The serial RS232 console port connector is used to connect a PC to the unit for
configuration or service purposes. Use a null-modem cable to connect the serial
port of the PC to the unit. The Baud rate can be selected in the menu system.
If the monitor has a loop-through connection and you are not using the loopthrough output, then select the 75-ohm impedance setting on the monitor. If the
monitor's loop-through output is connected to an additional device, the device's
termination is set to 75 ohms and the monitor's termination is set to high
impedance. (Note that this is not necessary on devices with automatic
termination.)

Keyboard connections
The keyboard input and output connectors are used to connect an external
keyboard to the unit. Connect the keyboard to the KBD IN connector. Up to 4
external keyboards can be connected when the optional keyboard port
expander (LTC2604) is used.
For short distances (up to 30m), standard 6-core telecom flat cable can be used
to supply power and signal connections for the keyboard.
For distances over 30m between keyboard and Divar, the Keyboard Extension
Kit (LTC 8557) must be used. This kit provides junction boxes, cables and the
appropriate power supply for the external keyboards. The recommended cable
type is Belden 9841 or equivalent.

Power Supply
Testing
Power is supplied to the unit via the IEC-style socket. The unit has no on/off
switch for security reasons. This means that the unit is always powered as long as
the power cable is connected from the unit to a live power socket.
In Live mode, select full-screen display for each camera and check the picture
quality. If the quality is poor, check:
Specifications:
• The BNC connections.
• Loop-through terminations.
• Video levels of incoming signals and the possibility of ground loops.
Input Voltage:
100 - 240 Vac ±10%
Current:
0.7A - 0.3A
Input Frequency:
50/60 Hz
Record for at least three minutes at the highest recording speed Then play back
the recording, selecting each camera for full-screen display in turn. Check the
playback picture quality. Check to see whether the programmed quality setting
is adequate.

CHAPTER 5
Menu system
You access all the parameters used to set up the unit via the menu system. The
large number of parameters available gives you the opportunity to program an
extensive functionality.
There are two ways of accessing the menu system, via the keys on the front of
the unit itself or via the PC-based Configuration Tool application. Using the
keys on the unit has the advantage of not requiring a PC and is the
recommended method if you are using the unit in a stand-alone configuration. If
you do have a PC connected to the unit or the unit is used in a network
environment, then the Configuration Tool offers a more convenient way of
accessing and using the menu.
In both cases the parameters available are the same. Slight differences in
navigation and selection are only due to the differences between the keys on the
unit and the keyboard and mouse interface of the PC. The menu structure is the
same in both cases.
This chapter explains how to use the keys on the unit to access the menus. It also
documents the full structure of the menu system. To find out how to use the PCbased Configuration Tool refer to Chapter 6.

Divar | Installation Manual | Menu system
EN | 5-2
Overview of the menu system
The main menu consists of six menu groups:
History. The History menu allows you to trace all events that have occurred on
the unit.
Disk manager. The Disk Manager menu provides information and functions
that relate to the maintenance of the storage system including internal and
external hard disks.
Time/Date. The Time/Date menu is used to set the actual reference time and
date for the unit and the format that is used to display them.
A profile determines how a unit behaves when that profile is active. Unit
behavior includes how events are handled. It also defines recording rates both
under normal conditions and in response to input and motion events.
Unit behavior can be set up differently for each of the six profiles. Profiles can
be named and copied to facilitate their setup and management.
Accessing the menu from the unit
To open the menu:
1. Press the ALT key
View settings. The View Settings menu is used to program how the individual
cameras are displayed on the monitors.
to enter the alternate function mode.
> The ALT indicator lights.
2. Press the menu
key.
> The main menu appears full-screen on monitor A.
System settings. The System Settings menu is where most of the static
parameters for the unit are set.
Profiles. The Profiles menu is used to set up and store the dynamic
characteristics of the unit.
Navigating
• Use the arrow keys to move through a menu or list.
• Use the select key
• Use the escape key
to select a submenu or item.
to go back.
Setting the dynamic characteristics
The settings in the Profiles menu provide the opportunity to tap the powerful
functionality of the unit. By spending some time in planning and setting up the
six profiles available, you can provide efficient use of resources while
maintaining effective cover for most types of working situations.
Profiles are usually based on a calendar, switching on and off at a particular date
or time (for example, weekends or night). Profiles can also be switched by an
input signal based on an external switch or armed alarm system.

CHAPTER 6
Using the
Configuration Tool
The Configuration Tool is a software application that makes the installation and
configuration of a unit faster and easier. The Configuration Tool runs on a PC
that is connected to the Divar either directly via an RS232 serial connection or
via an Ethernet network connection.
Although all settings can also be configured with the on-screen display menu of
the Divar itself, the Configuration Tool offers a very user-friendly alternative. It
also allows configuration settings to be saved on the PC hard disk. These can be
restored later and used to configure other units.
Bosch Security Systems
Divar | Installation Manual | Using the Configuration Tool

Control Center, place a check mark in the Save login information box.
3. Click Login.
Bosch Security Systems
• The Disk manager submenu is replaced by the Storage setup item of the
menu tree structure in the Configuration Tool.
As a result of the windows interface, selection and editing of some functions with
the Configuration Tool is different to the methods used on the unit itself. For
example, scroll bars are used instead of the arrow keys, the motion area
selection interface is simpler, and the Calendar edit item of the Profiles menu
uses a color code to add profiles to the calendar. The Configuration Tool
interface, although different, is intuitive and does not change the functionality of
the menu items.
