Overview of Bosch VCS IP network video solutions
Quite simply, Bosch VCS units are small, independent video and audio servers which plug into any CCTV camera and connect directly to an Ethernet LAN. You can then view the cameras from anywhere in the world using a networked PC, via Internet Explorer or using Bosch's own VIDOS software or NVR server. Simply call up the unit using its IP address. Alternatively you can use a VideoJet or VIP receiver to view the images on your CCTV monitor.

VCS units are economically priced and can be combined with other systems, analogue and digital hardware to quickly integrate a wide variety of legacy equipment into one single IP network.
