Device Access
5.2.1
Camera name
The camera can be assigned a name to assist in identifying it.
The name simplifies the management of multiple devices in
more extensive systems.
The camera 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.
5.2.2
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,
always start from the highest authorization level, service, and
use different passwords.
Password
Define and change a separate password for each level while
logged in as service or if the device is not protected by a
password. Enter the password (19 characters maximum) for
the selected level.

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.

Click Sync to PC to apply the system time from your
computer to the device.
Note:
It is important to ensure that the date/time is correct for
recording. An incorrect date/time setting could prevent correct

If the network has a DHCP server for dynamic IP address
allocation, set this parameter to On to activate the automatic
acceptance of DHCP-assigned IP addresses.
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.
IP address
Enter the desired IP address for the camera. The IP address
must be valid for the network.
Subnet mask
Enter the appropriate subnet mask for the set IP address.
Gateway address
Enter the IP address of the gateway to establish a connection to
a remote location in a different subnet. Otherwise, this field can

Profile Configuration
Profiles can be configured for use with the H.264 settings of
encoder streams. Select a profile by clicking the appropriate
tab. Change the name of a profile and individual parameter
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
Enter a new name for the profile here.
Target bit rate
To optimize utilization of the bandwidth in the network, limit
the bit rate for the camera. The target bit 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 bit rate field.
Maximum bit rate
This maximum bit 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 bit 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

recognition of tampering.
Metadata is always created for a video content analysis, unless

operating environment and the desired responses.
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.

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.

Activate this function if tampering associated with EMC
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

Multicast
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.)

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.
