Bosch HDR HD Dinion Test

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jan 29, 2013

In this report, we share our results of the BOSCH HDR HD Dinion, NBN-932V. Compared to the Bosch NBN-832 we tested last year, the 932 adds in WDR (which Bosch refers to as HDR).

We tested the 932 against offerings from Arecont, Avigilon, Axis, Panasonic and Sony in WDR, indoor and outdoor scenes. Additionally, we measured comparative bandwidth consumption.
