Overview of functions
The camera incorporates a network video server. Its primary
function is to encode video and control data for transmission
over an IP network. With its MPEG-4 encoding it is ideally suited
for IP communication and for remote access to digital video
recorders and multiplexers. The use of existing networks means
that integration with CCTV systems or local networks can be

achieved quickly and easily. Video images from a single camera
can be simultaneously received on several receivers.
1.4.1
Wide dynamic range
The digital signal is automatically processed in the camera to
optimally capture the detail in both the high and low light areas
of the scene simultaneously, maximizing the information visible
in the picture.
1.4.2
Power-over-Ethernet
Power for the camera can be supplied via a Power-over-Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af) compliant network cable connection. With
this configuration, only a single cable connection is required to
view, power and control the camera.
1.4.3
Receiver
MPEG-4 compatible hardware decoders (for example VIP XD)
can be used as a receiver. Computers with decoding software
such as VIDOS or computers with the Microsoft Internet
Explorer web browser installed can also be used as receivers.
1.4.4
Video encoding
The camera uses the MPEG-4 compression standard. Thanks to
efficient encoding, the data rate remains low even with high
image quality and can also be adapted to local conditions
within wide limits.
1.4.5
Tri Streaming
Tri Streaming allows the incoming data stream to be encoded
simultaneously according to three different, individually customized profiles. This creates two MPEG4 streams per camera
that can serve different purposes, for example, one for local
recording and one optimized for transmission over the LAN, and
an additional JPEG stream for use with a PDA.
1.4.6
Recording
The camera can be used with an iSCSI server connected via the
network to store long-term recordings.
V 2.5 | 2007.6
Operating Instructions
Bosch Security Systems
Dinion IP
1.4.7
Introduction | en 19
Multicast
In suitably configured networks, the multicast function enables
simultaneous, real time transmission to multiple receivers. The
prerequisite for this is that the UDP and IGMP V2 protocols are
implemented on the network.
1.4.8
Encryption
The data transmissions and the authentication channel can be
encrypted to prevent unauthorized access. Web browser connections can be protected using HTTPS.
1.4.9
Configuration
The camera can be configured using a browser on the local network (Intranet) or from the Internet. Similarly, firmware
updates and rapid loading of device configurations are also possible. Configuration settings can be stored as files on a computer and copied from one camera to another.
1.4.10
Tampering recognition and motion detectors
The camera offers a wide range of configuration options for
alarm signaling in the event of tampering with the camera. An
algorithm for detecting movement in the video image is also
part of the scope of delivery and can optionally be extended to
include special video analysis algorithms.
1.4.11
Snapshots
Individual video frames (snapshots) can be called up as JPEG
images, stored on the hard drive or displayed in a separate
browser window.
1.4.12
Backup
The browser application Livepage has an icon for saving the
video images provided by the unit as a file on your computer's
hard drive. Clicking this icon stores the video sequences and
they can be replayed with the Player from

The user name service represents the highest authorization
level. After entering the corresponding password, you can
use it to access all the functions of the camera and change
all configuration settings.

The user name user represents the middle authorization
level. You can use it to operate the unit and also to control
cameras, but you cannot change the configuration.
–
The user name live represents the lowest authorization
level. It can only be used to view the live video image and
switch between the different live image displays.
Password
You can define and change a separate password for each user
name if you are logged on as Service or if the unit is not protected by a password. Enter the password for the selected user

substituted when the settings are saved.
Profile name
You can enter a new name for the profile here. The name is then
displayed in the list of available profiles in the Active encoder
profile: field.
Target data rate
To optimize utilization of the bandwidth in your network, you
can limit the data rate for the camera. The target data rate
should be set according to the desired picture quality for typical scenes with no excessive motion.
For complex images or frequent changes of image content due
to frequent movements, this limit can temporarily be exceeded
as far as the value you enter in the Max. data rate: field.
Encoding interval
The figure selected here determines the interval at which
images are encoded and transmitted. For example, entering 4
means that only every fourth image is encoded, the following
three images are skipped – this can be particularly advantageous with low bandwidths. The image rate in IPS (Images Per
Second) is displayed next to the text block.
Video resolution
Here, you can select the desired resolution for the MPEG-4
video image. The following resolutions are available:
–

alarm recording begins, a recording is continuously made on
one segment, which is the size of a complete alarm sequence
(pre- and post-alarm time). This segment in the partition functions in a similar manner to a ring buffer and is overwritten until
an alarm is actually triggered. Recording occurs on the segment
only for the duration of the preset post-alarm time and a new
segment is subsequently used in the same manner.

Sensitivity
Sensitivity is available for the Motion+ analysis type. The basic
sensitivity of the motion detector can be adjusted for the environmental conditions to which the camera is subject. The sensor reacts to variations in the brightness of the video image.
The darker the observation area, the higher the value that must
be selected.
Min. object size
You can specify the number of sensor fields that a moving
object must cover to generate an alarm. This setting prevents
objects that are too small from triggering an alarm. A minimum
value of 4 is recommended. This value corresponds to four sensor fields.
Global change %
You can define the percentage of sensor fields that must register a change simultaneously before generating an alarm. This
setting is independent of the sensor fields selected under
Select area. This option allows you to detect, independently of
motion alarms, manipulation of the orientation or location of a
camera resulting from turning the camera mounting bracket, for
instance.
Selecting the area
The areas of the image to be monitored by the motion detector
can be selected. The video image is subdivided into 858 square
sensor fields. You can activate or deactivate each of these fields
individually. If you wish to exclude particular regions of the
camera's field of view from monitoring due to continuous movement (by a tree in the wind, etc.), the relevant fields can be
deactivated.

The basic sensitivity of the tamper detection can be adjusted
for the environmental conditions to which the camera is subject. The algorithm reacts to the differences between the reference image and the current video image. The darker the
observation area, the higher the value that must be selected.
Trigger delay
You can set delayed alarm triggering. The alarm is only triggered
after a set time interval in seconds has elapsed and then only if
the triggering condition still exists. If the original condition has
been restored before this time interval elapses, the alarm is not
triggered. This allows you to avoid false alarms triggered by
short-term changes, for example cleaning activities in the direct
field of vision of the camera.

IEEE 802.3 specification for 10 or 100 MBit/s Ethernet
The IEEE standard, 802.1x, provides a general method of
access control and authorization for IEEE 802-based networks. An authenticator provides authentication by accessing an authentication server (see RADIUS server) to check
connection requests, and grants or refuses access to the
available services (LAN, VLAN, WLAN).

A communications network serving users within a limited
geographical area, such as a building or a university campus. It is controlled by a network operating system and
uses a transfer protocol.
MAC
Media Access Control
MPEG-4
Further development of MPEG-2, designed for transmission
of audiovisual data at very low transfer rates (for example
via the Internet).
Net mask
A mask that explains which part of an IP address is the network address and which part comprises the host address. It
is usually written in dotted decimal notation with full stops
separating the bytes, for example "255.255.255.192".
NTP
Network Time Protocol is a standard for synchronizing the
system clocks in computers in packet switching networks.
NTP uses the stateless protocol, UDP. NTP was designed to
provide dependable time synchronization in networks with
variable latency (ping times).
