System Information
3.1
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 H.264 encoding, it is ideally suited
for IP communication and for remote access to digital video
recorders and IP systems. 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.
3.1.1
Progressive scan
The camera captures and processes progressively scanned
images. When there is fast motion in a scene, progressively
scanned images are generally sharper than interlaced images.
3.1.2
Tri-streaming
Tri-streaming allows the data stream to be encoded
simultaneously according to three different, individually
customized profiles. This creates two full H.264 streams that
can serve different purposes and an additional M-JPEG stream.
3.1.3
ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum)
The camera complies to the ONVIF standard which means that
it is easier to install and integrate into larger systems. The
ONVIF standard is a global standard for the interface of network
video products.
3.1.4
Audio
Two-way duplex audio is available in the unit for live voice
communications or audio recording.
3.1.5
Alarm I/O
The alarm input can be used to control the functionality of the
unit. An alarm output can control external devices.

Tamper detection 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.
3.1.7
Video encoding
The camera uses the H.264 compression standards. 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.
3.1.8
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.
3.1.9
Power-over-Ethernet
Power for the camera can be supplied via a Power-overEthernet compliant network cable connection. With this
configuration, only a single cable connection is required to
view, power, and control the camera.
3.1.10
Data interface
An external communications port with RS485/RS422/RS232 is
available to provide data to external devices, such as pan and
tilt heads, for full PTZ control via the Ethernet interface.
3.1.11
Encryption
The unit offers a variety of options for protection against
unauthorized reading. Web browser connections can be
protected using HTTPS. Protect the control channels via the
SSL encryption protocol. With an additional license, the user
data itself can be encrypted.

installed, can also be used as receivers.
3.1.13
Recording
The camera can be used with an iSCSI server connected via the
network to store long-term recordings.
3.1.14
Snapshots
Individual video frames (snapshots) can be called up as JPEG
images, stored on the hard drive, or displayed in a separate
browser window.
3.1.15

Device Access
Camera name
Assign a name to assist in identification. This name simplifies

The name is used for remote identification, for example, in the
event of an alarm. Enter a name that makes it as easy as
possible to identify the location unambiguously.
8.2.2
Password
A password prevents unauthorized access to the device. The
device recognizes three authorization levels: service, user, and
live.
–
service is the highest authorization level. Entering the
correct password gives access to all the functions of the
camera and allows all configuration settings to be
changed.
–
user is the middle authorization level. This user can
operate the device, play back recordings, and also control
a camera but cannot change the configuration.
–
live is the lowest authorization level. It can only be used to
view the live video image and switch between the different
live image displays.
Use the various authorization levels to limit access. Proper
password protection is only guaranteed if all higher
authorization levels are also protected with a password. For
example, if a live password is assigned, a service and a user
password should also be set. When assigning passwords,

Date/Time
Device date, time and zone
If there are multiple devices operating in the system or
network, it is important to synchronize their internal clocks. For
example, it is only possible to identify and correctly evaluate
simultaneous recordings when all devices are operating on the
same time.
As the device time is controlled by the internal clock, it is not
necessary to enter the day or date of the week. These are set
automatically. The time zone in which the system is located is
also set automatically.
1.
Click Sync to PC to apply the system time from your
computer to the device.
Time server IP address
The camera can receive the time signal from a time server using
various time server protocols and then use it to set the internal
clock. The device polls the time signal automatically once every
minute. Enter the IP address of a time server.
Time server type
Select the protocol that is supported by the selected time
server. It is recommended to select the SNTP server protocol.
This protocol provides high accuracy and is required for special
applications and future function extensions. Select Time server
if the server uses the RFC 868 protocol.
Note:
It is important to ensure that the date/time is correct for
recording. An incorrect date/time setting could prevent correct
recording.

Note:
Certain applications (for example, Bosch Video Management
System) use the IP address for the unique assignment of the
device. If using these applications, the DHCP server must
support the fixed assignment between IP address and MAC
address, and must be appropriately set up so that, once an IP
address is assigned, it is retained each time the system is
rebooted.

values within a profile.
Profiles are rather complex. They include a number of
parameters that interact with one another, so it is generally
best to use the default profiles. Only change a profile if
completely familiar with all the configuration options.
The parameters as a group constitute a profile and are
dependent on one another. If a setting outside the permitted
range for a parameter is entered, the nearest valid value is
substituted when the settings are saved.
Profile name

Target data rate
To optimize utilization of the bandwidth in the network, 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
up to the value entered in the Maximum data rate field.
Maximum data rate
This maximum data rate is not exceeded under any
circumstances. Depending on the video quality settings for the

I-frames and P-frames, this can result in individual images being
skipped.
The value entered here must be at least 10% higher than the
value entered in the Target data rate field. If the value entered
here is too low, it is automatically adjusted.
Encoding interval
The Encoding interval slider determines the interval at which
images are encoded and transmitted. This can be particularly
advantageous with low bandwidths. The image rate in ips
(images per second) is displayed next to the slider.
Video resolution

704 × 576/480 pixels
Expert Settings
if necessary, use the expert settings to adapt the I-frame quality
and the P-frame quality to specific requirements. The setting is
based on the H.264 quantization parameter (QP).
I-frame quality
This setting adjusts the image quality of the I-frames. The basic
setting Auto automatically adjusts the quality to the settings for
the P-frame video quality. Alternatively, use the slider to set a
value between 9 and 51. The value 9 represents the best image
quality with, if necessary, a lower frame refresh rate depending
on the settings for the maximum data rate. A value of 51 results
in a very high refresh rate and lower image quality.
P-frame quality
This setting adjusts the maximum image quality of the P-frames.

Aggregation time (s)
Set an aggregation time of between 0 and 20 seconds. The
aggregation time always starts when an alarm event occurs. It
extends the alarm event by the value set. This prevents alarm
events that occur in quick succession from triggering several
alarms and successive events in a rapid sequence. No further
alarm is triggered during the aggregation time.
The post-alarm time set for alarm recordings only starts once
the aggregation time has expired.
Analysis type
Select the required analysis algorithm. By default, only Motion+
is available — this offers a motion detector and essential
recognition of tampering.

Metadata is always created for a video content analysis, unless
this was explicitly excluded. Depending on the analysis type
selected and the relevant configuration, additional information
overlays the video image in the preview window next to the
parameter settings. With the Motion+ analysis type, for
example, the sensor fields in which motion is recorded are
marked with rectangles.
Note:
Additional analysis algorithms with comprehensive functions,
such as IVMD and IVA, are available from Bosch Security
Systems.
Motion detector
Motion detection is available for the Motion+ analysis type. For
the detector to function, the following conditions must be met:
–
Analysis must be activated.
–
At least one sensor field must be activated.
–
The individual parameters must be configured to suit the
operating environment and the desired responses.
–
The sensitivity must be set to a value greater than zero.
Note:
Reflections of light (from glass surfaces, etc.), lights switching
on and off, or changes in the light level caused by cloud
movement on a sunny day can trigger unintended responses
from the motion detector and generate false alarms. Run a
series of tests at different times of the day and night to ensure
that the video sensor is operating as intended. For indoor
surveillance, ensure constant lighting of the areas during the
day and at night.
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.

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.
Debounce time 1 s
The debounce time prevents very brief alarm events from
triggering individual alarms. If the Debounce time 1 s option is
activated, an alarm event must last at least 1 second to trigger
an alarm.
Selecting the area

Sensitivity and Trigger delay (s) can only be changed if
Reference check is selected.
Sensitivity
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 (s)
Set delayed alarm triggering here. 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 avoids false alarms triggered by short-term
changes, for example, cleaning activities in the direct field of
vision of the camera.
Global change (slider)
Set how large the global change in the video image must be for
an alarm to be triggered. This setting is independent of the
sensor fields selected under Select Area. Set a high value if
fewer sensor fields need to change to trigger an alarm. With a
low value, it is necessary for changes to occur simultaneously in
a large number of sensor fields to trigger an alarm. This option
allows detection, independently of motion alarms, manipulation
of the orientation or location of a camera resulting from turning
the camera mount bracket, for example.
Global change
Activate this function if the global change, as set with the
Global change slide control, should trigger an alarm.
Scene too bright
Activate this function if tampering associated with exposure to
extreme light (for instance, shining a flashlight directly on the
objective) should trigger an alarm. The average brightness of
the scene provides a basis for recognition.

interference (noisy scene as the result of a strong interference
signal in the vicinity of the video lines) should trigger an alarm.
Reference check
Save a reference image that can be continuously compared with
the current video image. If the current video image in the
marked areas differs from the reference image, an alarm is
triggered. This detects tampering that would otherwise not be
detected, for example, if the camera is turned.

9.10.3
Multicasting
In addition to a one-to-one connection between a camera and a
single receiver (unicast), the camera can enable multiple
receivers to receive the video signal simultaneously. This is
either done by duplicating the data stream in the device and
then distributing it to multiple receivers (multi-unicast), or by
distributing an individual data stream in the network itself to
multiple receivers in a defined group (multicast). Enter a
dedicated multicast address and port for each stream. Then
switch between the streams by clicking the associated tabs.
The prerequisite for multicast operation is a multicast-capable
network that uses the UDP and IGMP protocols. Other group
membership protocols are not supported. The TCP protocol
does not support multicast connections.
A special IP address (class D address) must be configured for
multicast operation in a multicast-enabled network. The
network must support group IP addresses and the Internet
Group Management Protocol (IGMP V2). The address range is
from 225.0.0.0 to 239.255.255.255. The multicast address can
be the same for multiple streams. However, it is then necessary
to use a different port in each case so that multiple data
streams are not sent simultaneously using the same port and
multicast address. The settings must be made individually for
each stream.
Enable
Enable simultaneous data reception on several receivers that
need to activate the multicast function. To do this, check the
box and then enter the multicast address.
Multicast Address
Enter a valid multicast address to be operated in multicast
mode (duplication of the data stream in the network). With the

setting 0.0.0.0 the encoder for the stream operates in multiunicast mode (copying of data stream in device). The camera
supports multi-unicast connections for up to five
simultaneously-connected receivers.
Duplication of data places a heavy demand on the CPU and can
lead to impairment of the image quality under certain
circumstances.
Port
Enter the port address for the stream here.
Streaming
Click the checkbox to activate multicast streaming mode. An
activated stream is marked with a check. (Streaming is typically
not required for standard multicast operation.)
Multicast packet TTL
A value can be entered to specify how long the multicast data
packets are active on the network. If multicast is to be run via a
router, the value must be greater than 1.

Maintenance
12.1
Testing the network connection
The ping command can be used to check the connection
between two IP addresses. This allows testing whether a device
is active in the network.
1.
Open the DOS command prompt.
2.
Type ping followed by the IP address of the device.
If the device is found, the response appears as " Reply from ... ",
followed by the number of bytes sent and the transmission time
in milliseconds. Otherwise, the device cannot be accessed via
the network. This might be because:
–
The device is not properly connected to the network.
Check the cable connections in this case.
–
The device is not correctly integrated into the network.
Check the IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address.
12.2
Communication with Terminal Program
Data Terminal
If a camera cannot be found in the network or the connection to
the network is interrupted, you can connect a data terminal to
the camera for initial setup and for setting important
parameters. The data terminal consists of a computer with a
terminal program.
You require a serial transmission cable with a 9-pin Sub-D plug
to connect to the computer.
HyperTerminal, a communications accessory included with
Microsoft Windows, can be used as the terminal program.
1.
Disconnect the camera from the Ethernet network before
working with the terminal program.
2.
Connect the serial interface of the camera using any
available serial interface on the computer.

If necessary, turn off the local echo so that entered values
are not repeated on the display.
2.
3.
Enter one command at a time.
When you have entered a value, such as the IP address,
check the characters you have entered before pressing
Enter to transfer the values to the camera.
Assigning an IP Address
Before you can operate a camera in your network you must first
assign it an IP address that is valid for your network.
The following default address is preset at the factory:
192.168.0.1
1.
Start a terminal program such as HyperTerminal.
2.
Enter the user name service. The terminal program
displays the main menu.
3.
Enter command 1 to open the IP menu.
4.
Enter 1 again. The terminal program displays the current IP
address and prompts you to enter a new IP address.
5.
Enter the desired IP address and press Enter. The terminal
program displays the new IP address.
6.
Use the displayed commands for any additional settings
you require.
