What to do when MIC IP camera is unable to perform the Object Classification in IVA detection?
Based on examples of target objects and non-target objects, the Camera Trainer program uses machine learning to allow the user to define objects of interest and generate detectors for them.
Using Configuration Manager, you can configure the Camera Trainer program using both live video as well as recordings available through your MIC IP cameras.
The camera also includes the latest release of Intelligent Video Analytics application for use on prepositions. Designed for mission-critical applications, the video analytics can reliably detect, track, and analyze moving objects while suppressing unwanted alarms from spurious sources in the image, even in harsh weather conditions. Advanced tasks like multiple line crossing, loitering, idle / removed object detection, crowd density estimation, occupancy and people counting are available for live alarming and forensic search. Object filters based on size, speed, direction, aspect ratio, and color can be defined.
In order to perform Object Classification correctly, please make sure that you have correctly:
set the correct Orientation
Save all the pre-positions again if the orientation stetting is changed
calibrated the camera
A simplified calibration mode reduces installation time significantly because you only need to enter the installation height once for each camera, independent of pre-positions.
After the camera is calibrated, the analytics engine can automatically classify objects as upright person, car, bike, or truck.)
enabled 3D tracking
set it up the tasks and followed the VCA manual.
Please see an overview of object classification in the following article:
How to set up object classification with video analytics
Each camera imager can be configured separately and therefore many settings can be made and checked separately.
Settings in the Installer Menu can be made on a per-camera basis, including sensor mode, image rotation & lens settings with the lens wizard.
Please find in this article some settings you can do separately for each FLEXIDOME multi 7000i camera imager on the camera’s web page.
A) If you would like to search for the BVMS version that can be used according to the firmware version of your DSA E2800, please check the following link:
Fix random reboot of NETAPP DSA E2800 (dual controller) by updating its Firmware
HD Decoders are not downgrade-able lower than the factory default version.
All Video Management Systems should not have issues with newer Firmware. All their implemented functions should work.
NOTE: All new stock of VJD-8000 gets version 9.51 due to Security Vulnerabilities.
Please also see:
Which Bosch encoders and decoders are compatible with BVMS?
According to the BVMS 11. Release notes > 2.2. Removed functionality chapter > The digital monitor wall functionality has been removed.
This removal has impact on the BVMS Viewer → Decoders are not supported anymore in BVMS Viewer starting with version 11.0
Other devices and functions that have been removed to ensure software security:
Map migration (removed Autodesk design review installation)
Note: The Monitor Group functionality is still available in BVMS Professional/ Plus/ Lite.
With the DSA E2800 Bosch introduced Multipathing. It is a fault-tolerance technique that defines more than one physical path between the camera and its iSCSI storage devices through redundant network connections.
When using this feature, recording of video data and replaying video data is possible even in case of an iSCSI controller failure. To ensure also that outages of infrastructure equipment (e.g. Switch) could be covered, we recommend following Interconnection.
BVMS v10.1 and BVMS v11.0 come with a checkbox where you can logon to the Operator Client with Windows Credentials.
If you want to use this function, you need to set up the BVMS Configuration Client and browse the AD users-groups. Then, the users can sign in to Operator Client with their Windows-Credentials.
If you have the option "Extended (security)/configuration mode" active on a VIDEOJET decoder 7000 (VJD-7513) in Configuration Manager, then no video image will be shown and the BOSCH logo will be displayed at the cameo of the monitor output of the decoder.
This is as designed in Configuration Manager, and this mode is to give you the opportunity to enable the SSD Encryption and to disable the USB ports.
Once you are finished changing the extended security features, you must uncheck the check box and the decoder will go back to normal functioning.
If the administrator account (which was originally created when initial setup wizard was run) has been deleted locally and another new administrator account was created, then it is not possible to create user via web. Only locally is possible, as the application is still looking for the original admin account.
A workaround here would be to default your Divar Network and follow the setup wizard > this will create the administrator user again and will let you create new users again.
Or create the new users locally on your Divar.
Bosch strongly recommends upgrading to the latest firmware for the best possible functionality, compatibility, performance and security.

The BVMS Logbook database can be moved to another SQL Server.
This article describes the steps that are necessary to migrate the database and describes how to confirm if the migration was successful.
BVMS is using Microsoft SQL Server Express to store its logbook. Based on the information provided by Microsoft (Compare SQL Server 2017 editions), SQL Server Express is limited to a 10GB database size.
This could be insufficient for larger installations or installations that require a very long logbook retention time. Additionally, some organizations have a dedicated SQL server environment which should be utilized by all applications. The BVMS Logbook database can be moved to another SQL Server. This guide describes the steps that are necessary to migrate the database and describes how to confirm if the migration was successful.
You can find it in the Configuration Client > Main window > Settings menu > Remote Access Settings... command > Show Port Mapping... button > Port Mapping Table dialog box
Port Mapping Table dialog box displays the port mapping for the IP addresses of the configured devices in your BVMS.
You can find here the private and public ports that are in use in the BVMS system.
All local ports that must be open on the computer where the server is installed or on the router/ level 3 switch that is connected to the server can be found in Help section (F1) from Configuration Client or you can see some useful examples, Q&A and specific cases in the following Knowledge Base article:
Which are the ports that must be open within a LAN for all BVMS components?
