VIP X1600 M4S
Overview of Functions
Network Video Encoder
The VIP X1600 M4S encoder module is a network video server for up to four independent
video channels. It is primarily designed for encoding video and control data for transfer over
an IP network. The audio version of the module also allows the transmission of audio signals
to compatible units. The use of existing networks means that integration with CCTV systems
or local networks can be achieved quickly and easily. The module offers a 2/3 D1 or 2CIF
resolution at a complete image rate of 25 (PAL) or 30 (NTSC) images per second for up to
four channels. Video images from a single sender can be received simultaneously on multiple
receivers.
The VIP X1600 M4S encoder module is designed for installation in the VIP X1600 XF base.
Installing the units is a quick and easy operation that does not require any additional tools. All
modules are hot swappable and can be exchanged while the system is running.
Receiver
Compatible MPEG-4 enabled hardware decoders (for example the VIP XD) can be used as
receivers. Computers with decoding software such as VIDOS or computers with the Microsoft
Internet Explorer Web browser can also be used as receivers.
Video Encoding
The VIP X1600 M4S encoder module uses the MPEG-4 video 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.
Dual Streaming
Dual Streaming allows the incoming data stream to be encoded simultaneously according to
two different, individually customized profiles. This feature creates two data streams that can
serve different purposes, for example one for recording and one optimized for live
transmission over the LAN.
Multicast
In suitably configured networks, the multicast function enables simultaneous real-time video
transmission to multiple receivers. The UDP and IGMP V2 protocols must be implemented on
the network for this function.
Encryption
The VIP X1600 M4S encoder module offers a variety of options for protection against
unauthorized reading. Web browser connections can be protected using HTTPS. You can
protect the control channels via the SSL encryption protocol. With an additional license, the
user data itself can be encrypted.

Remote Control
For remote control of external units such as pan or tilt heads for cameras or motorized zoom
lenses, control data is transmitted via the module's bidirectional serial interface. This
interface can also be used to transmit transparent data.
Tamper Detection and Motion Detectors
The VIP X1600 M4S encoder module offers a wide range of configuration options for alarm
signaling in the event of tampering with the connected 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.
Snapshots
Individual video frames (snapshots) can be called up as JPEG images, stored on the
computer's hard drive or displayed in a separate browser window.
Backup
A function for storing the video images displayed on the hard drive of your computer is
available on the LIVEPAGE as well as on the RECORDINGS page. Video sequences can be
stored by means of a mouse click and can be redisplayed using the Player supplied as part of
the scope of delivery of the base.

To configure the unit, you must connect the VIP X1600 XF directly to a computer using a
network cable. This is because communication via the network is not enabled until the
Identity and Password parameters have been set and successfully authenticated (see
Section 5.38 Advanced Mode: Advanced, page 77).
CAUTION!
!
5.2
The switch used for the network must support the multi-host operation when using 802.1x
authentication and must be configured so that a VIP X1600 XF with several modules can try
several hosts for communicating over the network.
Configuration Menu
The SETTINGS page provides access to the configuration menu, which contains all the unit's
parameters arranged in groups. You can view the current settings by opening one of the
configuration screens. You can change the settings by entering new values or by selecting a
predefined value from a list field.
There are two options for configuring the unit or checking the current settings:
–
Basic mode
–
Advanced mode
In Basic Mode the most important parameters are arranged in seven groups. This allows you
to change the basic settings with just a few entries and then put the device into operation.
Advanced Mode is recommended for expert users or system support personnel. You can
access all unit parameters in this mode. Settings that affect the fundamental functionality of
the unit (such as firmware updates) can only be altered in the advanced mode.
All parameter groups are described in this chapter in the order in which they are listed in the
configuration menu, from the top of the screen to the bottom.
!
CAUTION!
The settings in the advanced mode should only be processed or modified by expert users or
system support personnel.
All settings are stored in the module's memory so that they are retained even if the power
supply is interrupted.

Device name
You can give the module a name to make it easier to identify. The name makes the task of
administering multiple units in larger video monitoring systems easier, for example using the
VIDOS or Bosch Video Management System programs.
The device name is used for the remote identification of a module, in the event of an alarm for
example. For this reason, enter a name that makes it as easy as possible to quickly identify the
location.
CAUTION!
!
Do not use any special characters, for example &, in the name.

Password
A module is generally protected by a password to prevent unauthorized access to the unit.
You can use different authorization levels to limit access.
The module operates with three authorization levels: service, user and live.
The highest authorization level is service. After entering the correct password, this user name
allows you to use all the functions of the module and change all configuration settings.
With the user authorization level, you can operate the unit and also control cameras, for
example, but you cannot change the configuration.
The lowest authorization level is live. It can only be used to view the live video image and
switch between the different live image displays.
You can define and change a password for each authorization level if you are logged in as
service or if the unit is not password protected.
Enter the password for the appropriate authorization level here.
NOTICE!
i
Proper password protection is only guaranteed when all higher authorization levels are also
protected with a password. If a live password is assigned, for example, a service and a user
password must also be set. When assigning passwords, you should therefore always start
from the highest authorization level, service, and use different passwords.
Confirm password
In each case, enter the new password a second time to eliminate typing mistakes.

Advanced Mode: Encoder Profile
For the video signal encoding, you can select two profiles and a code algorithm for each video
input, and you can change the presets for the profiles.
You can adapt the video data transmission to the operating environment (for example network
structure, bandwidth, data load). To this end, the module simultaneously generates two data
streams (Dual Streaming). You can select the compression settings of these data streams
individually, for example one setting for transmissions to the Internet and one for LAN
connections.
Pre-programmed profiles are available, each giving priority to different perspectives.

Select the required profile for every data stream.
2.
Select the required code algorithm for every data stream.
You can change individual parameter values of a profile and you can also change the name.
You can switch between profiles by clicking the appropriate tabs.
CAUTION!
The profiles are rather complex. They include a large number of parameters that interact with
!
one another, so it is generally best to use the default profiles.
Change the profiles only once you are fully familiar with all the configuration options.
In the default setting, Stream 2 is transmitted for alarm connections and automatic
connections. Bear this fact in mind when assigning the profile.
NOTICE!
i
All parameters combine to make up a profile and are dependent on one another. If you enter a
setting that is outside the permitted range for a particular parameter, the nearest permitted
value will be substituted when the settings are saved.

Details
Clicking the Details >> button displays further details on image quality and data transmission.
These settings require extensive knowledge of the MPEG standard and video data
compression. Incorrect settings can render the video images unusable.
Maximum data rate
This maximum data rate is not exceeded under any circumstances. Depending on the video
quality settings for the I- and P-frames, this fact 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 will automatically be adjusted.
I-frame distance
This parameter allows you to set the intervals in which the I-frames will be coded. 0 means
auto mode, whereby the video server inserts I-frames as necessary. An entry of 1 indicates
that I-frames are continuously generated. An entry of 2 indicates that only every second image
is an I-frame, and 3 only every third image etc.; the frames in between are coded as P-frames.
Video quality
This setting allows you to adjust the image quality. The Auto option automatically adjusts to
the optimum combination of movement and image definition (focus). Alternatively, you can
use the slide control to select a value between 1 and 100. A value of 100 results in a very high
refresh rate and lower image quality.
H.264 deblocking filter
You can activate a filter that reduces blocking in the image in the case of H.264-encoded video
streams, thereby providing a smoother image. Please note that this option requires additional
computing power.

Priority
In the default configuration None, the computing power provided for individual tasks is
negotiated dynamically. This ensures the best possible video quality at all times. With the
MPEG-4/H.264 setting, video transmissions are given a higher priority and only a small
amount of power remains available for JPEG images. The JPEG setting is suitable for
applications that primarily require JPEG images, for example JPEG recordings. When this
setting is made the amount of power available for video images will be reduced.

Advanced Mode: Audio (Audio Version Only)
You can set the gain of the audio signals to suit your specific requirements. The current video
image is shown in the small window next to the slide controls to help you check the audio
source and improve assignments. Your changes are effective immediately.
If you connect via Web browser, you must activate the audio transmission on the LIVEPAGE
Functions page (see Section 5.15 Advanced Mode: LIVEPAGE Functions, page 40). For other
connections, the transmission depends on the audio settings of the respective system.
Audio
The audio signals are sent in a separate data stream parallel to the video data, and so increase
the network load. The audio data are encoded according to G.711 and require an additional
bandwidth of approx. 80 kbps for each connection. If you do not want any audio data to be
transmitted, select Off.
Line In 1 to Line In 4
You can set the gain for the line inputs. Make sure that the display does not go beyond the
green zone during modulation.

Select Area (MOTION+ only)
The areas of the image to be monitored by the motion detector can be selected. The video
image is subdivided into 858 square fields. Each of these fields can be activated or
deactivated 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.

Tamper detection
You can reveal the tampering of cameras and video cables by means of various options. Run a
series of tests at different times of the day and night to ensure that the video sensor is
operating as intended.
NOTICE!
i
The options for tamper detection can only be set for fixed cameras. Dome cameras or other
motorized cameras cannot be protected in this manner as the movement of the camera itself
causes changes in the video image that are too great.
Sensitivity
i
NOTICE!
This and the following parameter are only accessible if the reference check is activated.
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)
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.
Global change
You can 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 you to detect, independently of motion alarms, manipulation of the
orientation or location of a camera resulting from turning the camera mount bracket, for
instance.
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.
Scene too dark
Activate this function if tampering associated with covering the lens (for instance, by spraying
paint on it) should trigger an alarm. The average brightness of the scene provides a basis for
recognition.
Scene too noisy
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), as an example, should trigger
an alarm.
Reference check
You can save a reference image that is 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 allows you to detect tampering that would otherwise not be detected, for
example if the camera is turned.

Path costs
One way of prioritizing within the network is to define path costs. As required, define
different path costs for each Ethernet interface of the VIP X1600 XF. The path costs are used
for the evaluation of the data transfer routes.
LACP key
The LACP key is an identifier for using the interface and must be compatible with the setting
on the network switch. Only interfaces with the same key are used for bundling.
IGMP snooping
If you activate IGMP snooping, the switch assigns the multicast data traffic to the relevant
interfaces. This function can reduce data traffic in the network as well as within the individual
modules, and can respond when the network is overloaded, particularly when numerous

option can be useful if the connection to the central unit is lost. Once activation is complete,
you must enter the required IP address.
IGMP source IP
Enter the IP address that you want to use here. The IP address that you use should be as high
as possible and at least higher than that of the standard IGMP querier.

Advanced Mode: Multicasting
In addition to a 1:1 connection between an encoder and a single receiver (unicast), the
module can enable multiple receivers to receive the video signal from an encoder
simultaneously. The device either duplicates the data stream itself and then distributes it to
multiple receivers (Multi-unicast) or it sends a single data stream to the network, where the
data stream is simultaneously distributed to multiple receivers in a defined group (Multicast).
For each encoder (video input) you can enter a dedicated multicast address and port for each
stream. You can switch between the streams by clicking the appropriate tabs.
NOTICE!
i
Multicast operation requires a multicast-enabled network that uses the UDP and the Internet
Group Management IGMP protocols. Other group management 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 will be 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.
i
Bosch Security Systems
NOTICE!
You must set the parameters for each encoder (video input) and for each stream individually.
The numbering follows the labeling of the video inputs on the actual unit.

Enable
To enable simultaneous data reception on several receivers you need to activate the multicast
function. To do this, check the box. You can then enter the multicast address.
Multicast address
Enter a valid multicast address for each stream from the relevant encoder (video input) to be
operated in multicast mode (duplication of the data streams in the network).
With the setting 0.0.0.0 the encoder for the relevant stream operates in multi-unicast mode
(copying of data streams in the unit). The module supports multi-unicast connections for up
to five simultaneously connected receivers.
i
NOTICE!
Duplication of data places a heavy demand on the module and can lead to impairment of the
image quality under certain circumstances.
Port
Assign a different port to each data stream if there are simultaneous data streams at the same
multicast address.
Enter the port address of the required stream here.
Streaming
Click the checkbox to activate multicast streaming mode for the relevant stream. An enabled
stream is indicated by a check mark.
Multicast packet TTL
You can enter a value to specify how long the multicast data packets are active on the
network. This value must be greater than one if multicast is to be run via a router.

Maintenance and Upgrades
7.1
Testing the Network Connection
You can use the ping command to check the connection between two IP addresses. This
allows you to test whether a unit in the network is active.
1.
Open the DOS command prompt.
2.
Type ping followed by the IP address of the unit.
If the unit is found, the response appears as Reply from ... followed by the number of bytes
sent and the transmission time in milliseconds. If not, the unit cannot be accessed over the
network. This might be because:
–
The VIP X1600 XF is not correctly connected to the network. Check the cable
connections in this case.
–
The module is not correctly integrated into the network. Check the IP address, subnet
mask and gateway address.
7.2
Unit Reset
You can use the Factory Reset button to restore a module to its original settings. Any changes
to the settings are overwritten by the factory defaults. A reset may be necessary, for example,
if the unit has invalid settings that prevent it from functioning as desired.
CAUTION!
!
All configured settings will be discarded during a reset.
If necessary, back up the current configuration using the Download button on the
Maintenance configuration page (see Section 5.43 Advanced Mode: Maintenance, page 84).
NOTICE!
i
After a reset, the module can only be addressed via the factory default IP address. The IP
address can be changed as described in the Installation chapter (see Section 4.4 Setup Using
the Configuration Manager, page 21).
1.
If necessary, back up the current configuration using the Download button on the
Maintenance configuration page (see Section 5.43 Advanced Mode: Maintenance,
page 84).
2.
Using a pointed object, press the Factory Reset button located below the orange terminal
block until the module's LED on the front panel of the VIP X1600 XF flashes red. All
module settings will revert to their defaults.
