If your VIDEOJET decoder does not seem to work properly , most likely it is because the software (SW) version used is not compatible with the firmware (FW) version of your device.
But which are the system requirements for configuration/ operation purposes of VIDEOJET decoder 3000/ 7000/ 8000?
This article aims to define the way you can display camera video via decoders. Moreover, fifteen different settings scenarios and their effects will be outlined for the live video to be displayed through the decoder.
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.

This article describes h ow to create a Monitor Group on a decoder VJD 7xxx/ 8xxx in BVMS Configuration Client.
°Each decoder requires one or two channel expansion licenses (depending on the number of monitor ports available)
The current MG implementation requires the availability of the Management server during operation
Former Digital wall implementation has been removed in BVMS >=11.0
NEW BVMS v.11.0 feature
The configuration step 9+10 from this article can be done also using the “Protect iSCSI storage with global CHAP password” (Menu item under Hardware). In case the function has been already enabled, step 9+10 is obsolete.
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.
