Browser connection
A computer with Microsoft Internet Explorer is used to receive
live images, control the unit, and replay stored sequences. The
unit is configured over the network using the browser.
1.1
System requirements
–
Network access (Intranet or Internet)
–
Microsoft Internet Explorer version 9 (32-bit)
–
Screen resolution at least 1024 × 768 pixels
–
16- or 32-bit color depth
–
JVM installed
The Web browser must be configured to enable Cookies from
the IP address of the unit.
In Windows Vista, deactivate protected mode on the Security
tab under Internet Options.
To play back live video images, an appropriate ActiveX must be
installed on the computer. If necessary, install
Bosch Video Client. This can be downloaded from the following
address:
http://downloadstore.boschsecurity.com/
1.2
Establishing the connection
The unit must have a valid IP address to operate on your
network and a compatible subnet mask. By default, DHCP is preset at the factory to On and so your DHCP server assigns an IP
address. With no DHCP server the default address is
192.168.0.1
1.
Start the Web browser.
2.
Enter the IP address of the unit as the URL.
3.
During initial installation, confirm any security questions
that appear.

Note:
If you cannot connect, the unit may have reached its maximum
number of connections. Depending on the device and network
configuration, each unit can have up to 50 web browser
connections, or up to 100 connections via Bosch Video Client or
Bosch Video Management System.
1.2.1
Password protection in camera
A unit offers the option of limiting access across various
authorization levels. If the unit is password-protected, a
message to enter the password appears.
1.
Enter the user name and the associated password in the
appropriate fields.
2.
Click OK. If the password is correct, the desired page is
displayed.
1.3
Protected network
If a RADIUS server is used for network access control (802.1x
authentication), the unit must be configured first. To configure
the unit, connect it directly to a computer using a network cable
and configure the two parameters, Identity and Password. Only
after these have been configured can communication with the
unit via the network occur.

Password
A password prevents unauthorized access to the device. You can
use different authorization levels to limit access.
Proper password protection is only guaranteed when all higher
authorization levels are also protected with a password.
Therefore, you always have to start from the highest
authorization level when assigning passwords.
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.
The maximum password text length is 19 characters and no
special characters are allowed.
The device has three authorization levels: service, user, and live.
–
service is the highest authorization level. Entering the
correct password gives access to all the functions and
allows all configuration settings to be changed.
–
user is the middle authorization level. At this level you can

The encoder settings determine the characteristics of the four
streams generated by the camera. The types of streams that can
be generated are:
–
HD streams
–
SD streams
–
I-frame only streams for recording
–
M-JPEG streams
The bit rates, the encoding interval, and the Group-of-Pictures
(GOP) structure and quality, are defined and stored for eight
different profiles on the Encoder Profile page. The SD
(Standard Definition) resolution is also selected here.
The resolution of the two H.264 streams and the pre-defined
profile to be used for each stream is selected on the Encoder
Streams page. The maximum frame rate and quality of the JPEG
stream is also selected here.
The streams and profiles for recording are selected on the
Recording Profiles page.
The Encoder Regions page allows you to select different quality
levels for various areas of the image. This can help in reducing
the bit rate. For example, important objects can be selected to
provide higher quality encoding than selected background areas.

Encoder Profile
Profiles are rather complex and include a number of parameters
that interact with one another, so it is generally best to use the
pre-defined profiles. Only change a profile if completely familiar
with all the configuration options.
8.1.1
Pre-defined profiles
Eight definable profiles are available. The pre-defined profiles
give priority to different parameters.
–
Profile 1
High resolution for high bandwidth connections
–
Profile 2
High resolution with lower data rate
–
Profile 3
High resolution for low bandwidth connections
–
Profile 4
Standard resolution for high bandwidth connections
–
Profile 5
Standard resolution with lower data rate
–

8.1.4
Target bit rate
To optimize use of the bandwidth in the network, limit the data
rate for the device. 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 bit rate field.
8.1.5
Maximum bit rate
This maximum data rate is not exceeded under any
circumstances. Depending on the video quality settings for the Iframes 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.
8.1.6
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.
8.1.7
Standard definition video resolution
Select the desired resolution for the standard definition video
image.
Note:
These resolutions are not used by a HD stream.
8.1.8
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).

GOP structure
Select the structure you require for the Group-of-Pictures
(GOP). Depending on whether you place greater priority on
having the lowest possible delay (IP frames only) or using as
little bandwidth possible, you choose IP, IBP or IBBP. (GOP is
not available for megapixel cameras.)
Averaging period
Select the appropriate averaging period as a means of stabilizing
the long term bit rate.
I-frame distance
Use the slider to set the distance between I-frames to Auto or to
between 3 and 60. An entry of 3 means that every third image is
an I-frame.The lower the number, the more I-frames are
generated.
Min. P-frame QP
In the H.264-protocol, the Quantization Parameter (QP)
specifies the degree of compression and thus the image quality
for every frame. The lower the QP value, the higher the encoding
quality. A higher quality produces a higher data load. Typical QP
values are between 18 and 30. Define the lower limit for the
quantization of the P-frames here, and thus the maximum
achievable quality of the P-frames.
I/P-frame delta QP
This parameter sets the ratio of the I-frame QP to the P-frame
QP. For example, you can set a lower value for I-frames by
moving the slide control to a negative value. Thus, the quality of
the I-frames relative to the P-frames is improved. The total data
load will increase, but only by the portion of I-frames.
To obtain the highest quality at the lowest bandwidth, even in
the case of increased movement in the picture, configure the
quality settings as follows:
1.
Observe the coverage area during normal movement in the
preview images.

2.
Camera Browser
Interface
Set the value for Min. P-frame QP to the highest value at
which the image quality still meets your needs.
3.
Set the value for I/P-frame delta QP to the lowest possible
value. This is how to save bandwidth and memory in normal
scenes. The image quality is retained even in the case of
increased movement since the bandwidth is then filled up
to the value that is entered under Maximum bit rate.
Background delta QP
Select the appropriate encoding quality level for a background
region defined in Encoder Regions. The lower the QP value, the
higher the encoding quality.
Object delta QP
Select the appropriate encoding quality level for an object
region defined in Encoder Regions. The lower the QP value, the
higher the encoding quality.

Recording
Images can be recorded to an appropriately configured iSCSI
system or, for cameras with an SD slot, locally to an SD card.
SD cards are the ideal solution for shorter storage times and
temporary recordings. They can be used for local alarm
recording or to improve the overall reliability of video recording.
For long-term authoritative images use an appropriately sized
iSCSI system.
Two recording tracks are available (Recording 1 and Recording
2). The encoder streams and profiles can be selected for each of
these tracks for both standard and alarm recordings.
Ten recording profiles are available where these recording
tracks can be defined differently. These profiles are then used
for building schedules.
A Video Recording Manager (VRM) can control all recording
when accessing an iSCSI system. The VRM is an external
program for configuring recording tasks for video servers. For

Video Content Analyses (VCA)
The camera has integrated Video Content Analyses (VCA) which
detects and analyzes changes in the picture using image
processing algorithms. Such changes can be due to movements
in the camera's field of view. Detection of movement can be
used to trigger an alarm and to transmit metadata.
Various VCA configurations can be selected and adapted to your
application, as required.
Refer to Setting up VCA for more information on setting up
video content analyses.
Note:
If there is not enough computing power, priority is given to live
images and recordings. This can lead to impairment of the VCA
system. Observe the processor load and optimize the encoder
settings or the VCA settings if necessary, or turn off VCA
completely.

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.

Note:
For suitable devices, additional analysis algorithms with
comprehensive functions, such as IVMD and IVA, are also
available. Refer to the IVA documentation for more information
on using these.
11.2.3
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.
Minimum object size
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.

Debounce time 1 s
The debounce time prevents very brief alarm events from
triggering individual alarms. If the Debounce time 1 s option is

an alarm.
Selecting the area
Select the areas of the image to be monitored by the motion
detector. The video image is subdivided into square sensor
fields. Activate or deactivate each of these fields individually. To
exclude particular regions of the camera's field of view from
monitoring due to continuous movement (by a tree in the wind,
for example), the relevant fields can be deactivated.

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.

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) 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.

Disappearing edges
The area selected in the reference image should contain a
prominent structure. If this structure is concealed or moved, the
reference check triggers an alarm. If the selected area is too
homogenous, so that concealing and moving the structure would
not trigger an alarm, then an alarm is triggered immediately to
indicate the inadequate reference image.

SNMP
Camera Browser
Interface
The camera supports the SNMP V1 (Simple Network
Management Protocol) for managing and monitoring network
components, and can send SNMP messages (traps) to IP
addresses. It supports SNMP MIB II in the unified code.
If On is selected for the SNMP parameter and a SNMP host
address is not entered, the device does not send the traps
automatically and will only reply to SNMP requests. If one or
two SNMP host addresses are entered, SNMP traps are sent
automatically. Select Off to deactivate the SNMP function.
SNMP host addresses
To send SNMP traps automatically, enter the IP address of one
or two target devices here.
SNMP traps
To choose which traps are sent:
1.
Click Select. A dialog box appears.
2.
Click the check boxes of the appropriate traps.
3.
Click Set to close the window and send all of the checked
traps.
13.4.2
UPnP
Select On to activate UPnP communication. Select Off to
deactivate it.
When the Universal Plug-and-Play (UPnP) function is activated,
the unit responds to requests from the network and is
automatically registered on the requesting computers as a new
network device. This function should not be used in large
installations due to the large number of registration
notifications.

Note:
To use the UPnP function on a Windows computer, both the
Universal Plug-and-Play Device Host and the SSDP Discovery
Service must be activated.

Quality of Service
The priority of the different data channels can be set by defining
the DiffServ Code Point (DSCP). Enter a number between 0 and
252 as a multiple of four. For alarm video you can set a higher
priority than for regular video and you can define a Post Alarm
Time over which this priority is maintained.

Multicast
The camera can enable multiple receivers to receive the video
signal simultaneously. The stream is either duplicated and then
distributed to multiple receivers (Multi-unicast), or it is sent as a
single stream to the network, where it is simultaneously
distributed to multiple receivers in a defined group (Multicast).
Multicast operation requires a multicast-enabled network that
uses UDP and the Internet Group Management protocol
(IGMP V2). The network must support group IP addresses.
Other group management protocols are not supported. The TCP
protocol does not support multicast connections.
A special IP address from 225.0.0.0 to 239.255.255.255 (class D
address) must be configured for multicast operation in a
multicast-enabled network. The multicast address can be the
same for multiple streams, however, it is necessary to use a
different port in each case.
The settings must be made individually for each stream. Enter a
dedicated multicast address and port for each stream. Switch
between the streams by clicking the appropriate tabs.
13.5.1
Enable
Enable simultaneous data reception on receivers that need to
activate the multicast function. To do this, check the box and
enter the multicast address.
13.5.2
Multicast Address
Enter a valid multicast address to be operated in multicast mode
(duplication of the data stream in the network).

With a 0.0.0.0 setting, the encoder for the stream operates in
multi-unicast 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.
13.5.3
Port
Enter the port address for the stream here.
13.5.4
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.)
13.5.5
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.
