Recorders & Servers

Controlware provides an extensive range of reliable recording solutions that cover small businesses through to large enterprise multi-site systems. From a few video channels all the way to thousands, we have you covered.

Video Recorders

Bosch video recorders offer seamless analog and IP camera support, a wide variety of storage options, optimisation for Bosch analytics cameras and BVMS and integration with third party cameras.

DIVAR Hybrid and Network Recorders – for Small to Medium Applications

The Bosch DIVAR Network 2000 and 3000 series and the DIVAR Hybrid 3000 are primarily standalone recording solutions for businesses with one location, such as independent retailers, convenience stores or medium sized hotels, restaurants and other small to medium businesses.

The DIVAR network 5000 and DIVAR hybrid 5000 models are designed to be easily mounted in a 19” rack, making them suitable for medium businesses and chains of stores that prefer hideaway installation below the counter, in a separate server room or another suitable location.

The DIVAR network and hybrid recording solutions help to construct future-proof IP video surveillance systems for small and medium businesses, allowing them to shift to a full IP video surveillance system, or expand it, step by step.

DIVAR all-in-one Appliances – for Medium to Enterprise Solutions

DIVAR IP all-in-one units combine recording, video management and local operation, providing you with a complete, easy-to-install video recording system.

The DIVAR IP all-in-one units are specifically designed to work with BVMS including the Video Streaming Gateway that enables integration with third-party cameras, and the Video Recording Manager. Consequently, these devices eliminate the need for a separate Network Video Recording service and storage hardware, reducing the total cost of the system.


BVMS provides seamless management of digital video, audio and data across an IP network. It includes standard features such as viewing, recording, replaying and exporting, as well as advanced video management functions such as event and alarm handling, or forensic searches to retrieve evidence in seconds.

Due to its load balancing capabilities, the pre-installed Video Recording Manager makes managing large volumes of data extremely efficient. It ensures recorded video streams are distributed equally among the units, meeting retention times and minimizing the chance of over-writing, and eliminating bottle-necks in the network. This means there is no single point of failure to compromise availability, even when part of the system goes down.


DID YOU KNOW that Bosch cameras have Direct-to-iSCSI technology? The camera has a memory location that can be populated with the location of the ISCSI storage address from a storage manager device. The advantage with this, is the camera and recording manager handles which ISCSI device to connect to. This allows for a more robust availability for the storage and reduces the cost of the complete system.


Three different All-in-One Appliances are available to satisfy a range of video system sizes and storage requirements.
