Camera IP support
The recorder supports native camera integration with Bosch IP cameras which provides easy installation,
configuration and maintenance options. This allows plug-and-play connectivity as the installer can connect
and configure the cameras to the recorder without having to open every camera individually on a web
client. For further configuration 3rd party cameras are supported through the ONVIF Profile S protocol.
Simultaneous record and view The DIVAR records multiple video and audio signals
while simultaneously providing live multi-screen viewing and playback. Comprehensive search and
playback functions provide quick recall and viewing of recorded video.

The DIVAR has a real-time display resolution of 1080p for 16 channels simultaneously, or 4K for 4 channels.
PoE+ switch The recorders with a built-in PoE+ switch can supply power to a maximum of 16 connected cameras. Each camera automatically receives its IP address from the recorder for simple plug-and-play operation.

Simple operation
The DIVAR is very easy to install and use. Simply connect the cameras, apply power, and follow the
simple Install Wizard steps for initial setup. The unit can then record automatically with no further
intervention required.

Bosch offers its customers free Dynamic Domain Name Services (DDNS) for access to network-connected
devices via a ”friendly” hostname without the need for costly static IP addresses. This makes it easier for
uninterrupted access to important video from devices regardless of their location.
All models have extensive alarm handling functions and telemetry control. Alarm functions include local
inputs and relay outputs, plus motion detection in user-defined areas. If an alarm is detected, the DIVAR
• send an e-mail notification and/or FTP push
• sound a buzzer and/or display a warning
• activate local alarm output

Local control
The unit can be easily operated and programmed via the on-screen display menu system using:
• the supplied mouse
• the front panel control keys
• the supplied remote control
• push notification

Inputs and outputs
Video inputs, audio inputs/output, and alarm inputs/ outputs are located on the rear panel.
Two video connectors (VGA/HDMI) provide simultaneous output for monitor A for live display
(with zoom) and playback (display can be frozen and zoomed). The displays allow full-screen, multi-screen,
and sequenced viewing.
A second HDMI connection provides custom camera views for a monitor B.
Network control
Use the PC software or built-in web application via a network for live viewing, playback, and configuration.
The DIVAR includes an authenticity check for both local and remote archives, ensuring recording
integrity. An Archive Player is provided for playback of secure video files and to check if video is authentic.
Smartphone App

A DIVAR Viewer App from Bosch for iOS and Android
devices is available for:
• live and playback viewing
• recorder configuration
• PTZ control

This means you can watch live video from cameras connected to the DVR from anywhere in the world. You can also control focus, pan, tilt and zoom on PTZ-enabled cameras.

Furthermore, the smartphone App supports remote push notifications. In this way you are automatically
notified if an alarm occurs on the device and can take immediate action, even if you are not actively
monitoring the system at that moment.
Dome control
The DIVAR can control pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) equipment using commands sent via IP connection. It also
supports Focus, Iris and Aux commands for Bosch cameras.
Intuikey keyboard
One Bosch Intuikey keyboard can be connected to this unit to control dome cameras.
RAID software
Units installed with 2 HDDs can support RAID 1 software for mirroring drives. Units installed with
4 HDDs can support RAID 5 software.
Using RAID has a large impact on the system performance. To keep the playback smooth, Bosch
recommends to limit the playback to 4 channels.
