What's new or fixed in Project Assistant 1.2.2?
Next to general stability improvements and bug fixes, version 1.2.2 of the Project Assistant introduces the following new feature on all three platforms: Allow re-configuration of a camera, e.g. wirelessly adjust the field of view of a FLEXIDOME IP starlight 8000i , while local recording is running. One bug fix worth mentioning explicitly is that we addressed a connectivity issue, which was faced, when connecting wirelessly to multiple FLEXIDOME IP starlight 8000i cameras one after another.
We have published a new Excel template file that makes the import of existing information into the Project Assistant even easier. Feel free to check out the updated Knowledge Base article.
Further information can be found in the release letter attached.

The Bosch VRM Monitor page does not open correctly, but instead displays an Error.
Any Replay client requesting video from the Bosch Video Recording Manager service, only receives the Time-Line but the video is alway Black.
Bosch VRM by default uses Ports 80 & 443.
In most cases the problem is caused by another web server (e.g. IIS) that is installed on the same machine and is also making use of the default web ports 80 & 443.
Bosch Video Recording Manager (VRM)
Bosch Video Managment System (BVMS)
Bosch Video Client (BVC)
Bosch Video Security Client (VSC)
Any Replay Client/ Managment System which accesses recorded video data via HTTP/HTTPS
Disable any of the other web services or change the default Ports they are using.
Which Bosch encoders and decoders are compatible with BVMS?
Up until some years ago, new released cameras, encoders, domes and decoders that are introduced into market after a BVMS release could not be connected to an existing BVMS version because these cameras where not known to the BVMS. In the BVMS 4.5.1, a new concept was introduced. This concept treats Bosch video encoders and decoders as generic devices, and automatically recognizes specific device functionality (for example the number of streams, relays and inputs). Based on this information the, at that time, unknown device is added to the system and can be used by the operator. The attached document provides a detailed description of this functionality.
Bosch ST has sold the HP Workstations and the HP Enterprise Servers and is responsible to provide the required Service & Support for these products regardless of the SLA in place with HP. Therefore, the customer always will contact the Bosch After Sales organization in case of any problems encountered with one of these products. The customer must never been told to contact HP or HPE directly if he seeks support from Bosch. In this solution article a questionnaire for a first basic analysis of a reported issue is described. This checklist is intended to help to identify and resolve known issues immediately and to collect relevant data in case of an unknown issue.
Standard Service Documents The calculation of the storage capacity is done in different way in Configuration Client and VRM Monitor: - In BVMS Configuration Client Capacity (GB) stands for the available physical capacity of the storage, as calculated and provided by the storage vendor (for example NetApp). -In VRM Monitor – under Target Overview – Total is listed the number of all available blocks multiplied by the size of the blocks that is by default 1GB. This calculation concerns the logical storage and depends on the way the storage is used (for example how many Luns are imported in the system).
Related Products Bosch Recording Station Video Jet X Series BRS Question Is it possible to control an AutoDome connected to VideoJet X Series via Bilinx? Answer In BRS 8.8.1 Bilinx over Encoder only works for devices connected via VSDKPluginModule. Current supported devices are VIP-X1600-XFM4B and VIP-X1XF. VideoJet X series are connected per default via VCSModule, which does not support Bilinx communication. To be able to control Bilinx devices on VideoJet X series please configure the following work around: 1. In BRS Configuration > IP Cameras and encoders > Scan network (VideoJetX is found) and add VideoJetX device to BRS 2. Click VideoJetX and click Edit 3. In tab General settings select Device Type BVIP H.264 4. In tab Dome settings mark Activate and select Connection Bilinx/IP Dome Now the AutoDome can be controlled via Bilinx. Note: Due to performance reasons do not change the encoder stream from MPEG-4 SH++ to H.264 streaming! Only change the device type in BRS.
How to terminate a M12 connector for FLEXIDOME micro 5000 MP?
Both RJ45 and M12 plug connectors are available with IEC 11801:2002 Cat5 compliance. This further simplifies the concurrent use of both connector types within a single system. Assembly consists of three easy steps, none of which require specialist tools. The plug connectors, compliant with all standards and fully shielded against EMC interference, are available in four-pin and eight-pin configurations. They can be connected to flexible or rigid wires, with sizes ranging from AWG 26 to AWG 22. This makes the connectors suitable for all Industrial Ethernet transmission systems, Ethernet-based fieldbus systems such as Profinet, and EtherNet/IP up to gigabit speeds. The M12 Quickon connector provides a sturdy metal housing with a plug-and-turn mechanism. A 360 degree shielding connection with an iris spring means the connector is well suited to system environments with large amounts of EMC interference. The compact design of the RJ45 Quickon connector, on the other hand, makes it suitable for horizontal or vertical multi-port connection (as is frequently required by switches, for example). Connector ID rings are available in eight colors to visually aid patch-bay layout.

Related Products BVMS OPC Server Question List with restricted symbols when using BVMS OPC Server. Answer BVMS OPC server restricts the use of some symbols in the camera names. We can divide them into 3 groups: - XML restricted symbols. For the OPC server the device configuration is exported in a XML file. So no reserved XML characters should be used as they will be replaced by blanks when exporting the OPC file. XML restricted characters: : & < > " ' - OPC Specification restricted symbols. OPC Specification restricts the use of: " ´ ` ' # - OPC namespace delimiters: . , /
