Introduction
Digital versatile recorder for security applications
Versions
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.
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.

Setup
On-screen help
The unit is configured by an administrator. Access to the configuration functions
is normally password protected. The choices made during setup can restrict the
functions available to the operator. For example, the number of multiscreen
views can be limited.
On-screen help is available for all topics. Just press the yellow ALT key
for
at least one second to see the help text associated with your current activity.
Search and playback functions can also be password protected, so it is possible
that they are not available to the operator. All possible operator facilities are
described in this manual but some of these may not be available to you.

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.
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
