System overview
Bosch VMS contains the following software
• Management Server software provides management,
monitoring, and control of the entire system
• Enterprise Management Server provides access to
multiple Management Servers
• Video Recording Manager (VRM) provides recording
and playback management of video, audio, and data
• Configuration Client software provides the user
interface for system configuration and management
• Configuration Wizard software provides easy and fast
setup of a small recording system

for system monitoring and operation
2 | Bosch Video Management System v.4.5.5
• Mobile Video Service provides a transcoding service.
It transcodes the live and recorded video stream from
a configured camera according to the available
network bandwidth. This service enables video clients
like an iPhone or a Web client to view high-quality
images via low bandwidth.
• Mobile App: You can use the Mobile App on iPhone or
iPad to access live and playback video.
• Web Client: You can access live and playback videos
via Web browser.
• Bosch Video Streaming Gateway: Provides the
integration of ONVIF cameras.

Bosch Video Recording Manager (VRM) provides a
Distributed Network Video Recorder solution,
eliminating the need for dedicated NVRs.
VRM provides load balancing and failover for the iSCSI
Storage System and makes it easy to add additional
iSCSI Storage Systems later on. VRM introduces the
concept of a storage virtualization layer. This
abstraction layer enables VRM to manage all of the
individual disk arrays in the entire system as various
“virtual” pools of storage, which are intelligently
allocated as needed.
The usage of multiple client workstations offers great
