Bosch VIP X1 XF E Single-channel Video Encoder

  • Single-channel H.264 encoder with Dual Streaming
  • SD card and iSCSI recording
  • Multicast and Internet streaming
  • Alarm input and relay output
  • ONVIF conformant

The VIP X1 XF E encoders feature DVD-like quality H.264 video, at up to 25/30 images per second, over IP networks. The devices support PAL and NTSC sources and offer a basic motion detector. The encoders provide bidirectional audio communication in parallel to video.
They also provide Dual Streaming and therefore are able to generate two independently configurable video streams. The devices are ultra-compact, so they are perfect for any application that depends on spacesaving solutions.
