When a cart is used, use caution when moving the cart/
apparatus combination to avoid injury from tip-over.
13. Unplug this unit during lightning storms or when unused for long periods of
time.
14. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing is required when
the apparatus has been damaged in any way, such as power-supply cord or plug
is damaged, liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the apparatus, the
apparatus has been exposed to rain or moistue, does not operate normally, or
has been dropped.

electrode.
CAUTION
Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than
those specified herein may result in hazardous radiation exposure.
ATTENTION
Video loss is inherent to digital video recording; therefore Bosch Security
Systems cannot be held liable for any damage that results from missing video
information. To minimize the risk of lost digital information, Bosch Security
Systems recommends the implementation of multiple, redundant recording
systems and a procedure to backup all analog and digital information.

CHAPTER 1
Introduction
Digital video recorder for security applications
The Divar - Easy 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 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.
All models have extensive alarm handling functions and telemetry control. The
unit can be easily operated and programmed via the front panel control keys
and on-screen display menu system. One monitor output provides full-screen,
quad and multiscreen viewing. 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. Two 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. The PC-based Configuration Tool facilitates
the setup of the unit.
Auto-terminating video inputs, alarm inputs and outputs, and remote control
connectors are on the rear panel. The monitor output provides a CVBS video
signal in either NTSC or PAL. Monitor A displays full-screen or multiscreen
digital pictures that can be frozen and zoomed.

Triggers and alarms
Various types of events can change the way the unit works. These events can be:
•
•
•
•
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
•
•
•
•
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
• The
indicator flashes
• An output relay is activated

flashes
Alarms and Triggers
• The view modes on the monitors change
• A controllable camera is moved to a pre-defined position.
• Recording speed changes
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.
A trigger may change the way the camera images are displayed on the monitor
without requiring your intervention.

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.

Profiles. The Profiles menu is used to set up and store the dynamic
characteristics of the unit.
Access to some menu items can be password protected.
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
three 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). 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.

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.

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.
