DDN-2516 Series Description

Connect this recorder to a maximum of 16 IP cameras that use the latest H265/H264 high-resolution video technology and state-of-the-art compression techniques.

The recorders can be installed with a maximum of 2 internal HDDs for video storage. Another option is a single HDD for storage, plus a DVD burner for video export.

DDN-2516 Series Functions

Latest video compression technology

The DIVAR supports H.264 video compression technology and is H.265-ready for the newest H.265 technology cameras to be released by Bosch. This technology dramatically reduces bandwidth and storage requirements while still delivering superb image and audio quality. Equipped with this newest video technology, DIVAR gives you the full benefits of the latest high-resolution cameras. The proof is in the pixels.

Camera IP support

The recorder supports Bosch IP cameras (and 3rd party IP cameras) complying to the ONVIF Profile S specifications.

The recorder only supports IP cameras with a firmware version 6.30 or higher.

Simultaneous record and view

The DIVAR records multiple video and audio signals while simultaneously providing live multi-screen viewing and playback. Comprehensive search and playback functions provide quick recall and viewing of recorded video.

The DIVAR has a real-time display resolution of 1080p for 8 channels simultaneously, or 4K for 2 channels.

PoE+ switch

The recorders with a built-in PoE+ switch can supply power to a maximum of 16 connected cameras. Each camera automatically receives its IP address from the recorder for simple plug-and-play operation.

Simple operation

The DIVAR is very easy to install and use. Simply connect the cameras, apply power, and follow the simple Install Wizard steps for initial setup. The unit can then record automatically with no further intervention required.


Bosch offers its customers free Dynamic Domain Name Services (DDNS) for access to network-connected devices via a ”friendly” hostname without the need for costly static IP addresses. This makes it easier for uninterrupted access to important video from devices regardless of their location.


All models have extensive alarm handling functions and telemetry control. Alarm functions include local inputs and relay outputs, plus motion detection in user-defined areas. If an alarm is detected, the DIVAR can:

• send an e-mail notification and/or FTP push
• sound a buzzer and/or display a warning
• activate local alarm output

Local control

The unit can be easily operated and programmed via the on-screen display menu system using:

• the supplied mouse
• the front panel control keys
• the supplied remote control

Inputs and outputs

Video inputs, audio inputs/output, and alarm inputs/outputs are located on the rear panel. Two video connectors (VGA/HDMI) provide simultaneous output for monitor A for live display (with zoom) and playback (display can be frozen and zoomed). The displays allow full-screen, multi-screen, and sequenced viewing.

Dome control

The DIVAR can control pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) equipment using commands sent via IP connection (using ONVIF protocol for supported devices).

Network control

Use the PC software or built-in web application via a network for live viewing, playback, and configuration. Watermark

The DIVAR includes an authenticity check for both local and remote archives, ensuring recording integrity. An Archive Player is provided for playback of secure video files and to check if video is authentic. Smartphone App

A DIVAR Viewer App from Bosch for iOS and Android devices is available for:

• live and playback viewing
• recorder configuration
• PTZ control

This means you can watch live video from cameras connected to the DVR from anywhere in the world. You can also control focus, pan, tilt and zoom on PTZenabled cameras.
