Bosch Security Systems announces an interactive website that details the IP Video Surveillance devices, firmware versions and features supported by a variety of software offerings from Bosch and other suppliers. The new IP Video Compatibility Zone provides customers with the information they need to
design dependable surveillance systems using best-of-breed CCTV products that integrate seamlessly.

Customers accessing the site will find the products and features ­ such as tamper detection, streaming capabilities and alarm notifications ­ that are
supported by 12 head-end systems from Bosch and third-party suppliers. Customers can select multiple products and systems at once, allowing them to
compare compatibility across a customized set of suppliers and devices.

“Seamless integration is just one step in Bosch’s efforts to advance the science of surveillance, which focuses on image usability,” said Dieter
Jöcker, senior product manager for IP products, Bosch Security Systems. “The result of our efforts are security products that provide comprehensive
integration and exceptional image quality.”

Two powerful planning tools are also provided on the new site. The Firmware Compatibility matrix identifies the firmware versions that are ideal for
Bosch IP cameras, encoders, digital video recorders, and software. In addition, an Encoder-Decoder Compatibility chart outlines compatibility
between camera/encoder configurations and decoders for both H.264 and MPEG-4 compression. Customers can download the Firmware and Encoder-Decoder Compatibility charts for easy offline reference.
