Bitrates with Low Storage Requirements

The very best surveillance systems are built on excellence in video security and data management. Bosch data management solutions help you reduce storage costs and network strain without compromising the video quality you rely on for effective security.

  • The all new IP 4000i, IP 5000i and IP 6000 cameras have the latest bitrate management technologies.
  • With a firmware update also the previous generation Bosch IP cameras can prosper from the new techniques.



Rapid advances in technology are driving the video surveillance industry into the arena of Big Data. Higher resolutions, higher frame rates, excellent dynamic ranges and better light sensitivity are key to capturing images that can distinguish individuals or objects for irrefutable evidence - whatever the time of day or night.

The amount of data is getting larger by the minute. This increased data needs to be managed efficiently, as well as the service, maintenance and management costs that are associated with it, without compromising image quality or making it less relevant.

Most Efficient Bitrate

At Bosch, the most efficient bitrates with the lowest storage requirements and network strain are delivered - all without compromising the exceptional quality of images. They also offer the assurance that data is always stored in the most reliable and efficient way, even in situations when the primary storage device is either full or unavailable.

Use Bandwidth Only When Needed


Quiet scenes with little or no movement require a lower bitrate, regardless of the time of day. By intelligently distinguishing between noise and relevant information, such as movement, bitrates can be reduced substantially.

  • Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction reduces image noise before encoding.
  • Intelligent streaming adjusts encoder settings based on the level of movement to achieve the most efficient bitrate.
  • Both intelligent techniques reduce noise at the source during image capture.
  • The lower bitrate does not compromise video quality.

H.265 Encoding

All Bosch cameras that feature Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction and Intelligent streaming combined with H.265 video encoding can reduce bitrates by up to 80% depending on the scene. With intelligent bitrate management techniques, storage costs can be reduced significantly, and network strain is lessened by only using bandwidth when needed.

Reliable and Easy Video Data Management

Security operation needs to be up and running no matter what. That means large volumes of video data can be hard to process and difficult to manage. Video Recording Manager (VRM) makes managing large data volumes easy with maximum reliability while lowering costs. It enables the camera to stream relevant video data directly to the available storage devices without the use of network servers. This saves costs, server maintenance, and eliminates a possible single point of failure, thereby increasing reliability.

VRM also allows you to expand your surveillance system easily by adding extra cameras or storage devices to meet your growing needs. The available storage capacity is used most efficiently because VRM automatically balances the video stream load to the free storage volumes. Less redundant storage is needed and it is easier to respect retention times with a minimal risk of overwriting.
