It combines the functionality of a digital recorder with a multiplexer and a switcher. 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: 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, a web browser on a PC can be used to view live images or playback recordings from a Divar. 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. Bosch Security Systems • 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 triple (***) asterix respectively. If your unit has neither of these facilities, then please skip these instructions.

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. A motion detection signal from a camera. 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 causes 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 • • • • A beeper sounds A status message is displayed An alarm icon is displayed The border around a cameo can change color • An alarm indicator , , or flashes • The indicator flashes • An output relay is activated Alarms and Triggers • • • • The view modes on the monitors change A controllable camera is moved to a pre-defined position.
