By 2017, Bosch’s will offer latest H.265 encoding together with its intelligent bitrate management techniques across the majority of its portfolio. Another step to further reduce storage costs and network strain within compromising image quality while offering higher resolutions. Besides intelligent bitrate management, all Bosch network cameras offer built-in software and hardware measures to ensure highest data security standards, and video analytics as standard as of the IP 4000 series.

H.265 is a video compression technology that should be seen as a successor of H.264. It is ideal for resolutions as of 5 megapixel and higher. To take full advantage of this latest video compression standard, it is essential that all hardware components in the complete video security solution are capable of supporting H.265. Bosch will offer recording solutions such as the DIVAR hybrid and network supporting both H.264 and H.265 video streams. In case the current video security set-up does not support H.265 yet, all H.265 cameras can still be used since they are all backward compatible with H.264 solutions.

Next to latest compression technology, the real advantage in terms of low storage requirements and network strain mainly comes from the camera’s ability to minimize image noise and dynamically adapting the encoder compression ratio for various regions of an image based on importance. Bosch’s Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction and other intelligent streaming techniques are good examples of how noise and bitrate can be effectively minimized within compromising image quality. Depending on the content of the scene bitrates can be reduced by up to 80%.
