    Related Products AUTODOME 7000 HD, MIC 7000i, and MIC 9000i Question  Why is the minimum FW version 6.52.0003 for these models? Answer In November 2018 an internal hardware (HW) change was made to these models that requires this new minimum FW version. The new HW version isn't backwards compatible with older FW versions. Question If the unit has been upgraded to a higher version, how do I get the 6.52.0003 FW? Answer This FW version was only released for these three models, so it isn't available on the Bosch Download Store. At this time, please contact Technical Support to obtain this FW. It will be available on the individual Product catalog pages by March 11, 2019 (or sooner).

    This article contains detailed examples for the absolute position functions of the various IP models of the Autodome & MIC cameras. The support model series are: • Current Models: AUTODOME IP 4000/5000, AUTODOME IP 4000i/5000i, VG5 IP 7000, MIC IP 7000 & MIC IP 7000i, MIC IP 9000i • EOL models: VG5 700, VG5-800, JR HD NOTES: 1. These commands will NOT work with either the Analog cameras with the serial interface. 2. The HD cameras do not support the OSRD absolute position commands. The HD models operate using the BICOM protocol over IP.

    VCA (Video content analysis) is the process of automatically analyzing video images to alarm on predefined events like the detection of moving objects in the monitored area or tampering with the camera. It can also be used to gather statistics about the detected objects.     Depending on the camera type, the following VCA algorithm are available in Bosch cameras: –   Intelligent Video Analytics: Mission-critical, long-distance intrusion detection in extreme weather conditions. Detection and tracking of moving objects. –   Intelligent Video Analytics Flow: Basic motion detection of cells in a grid with velocity and direction. Used for counter flow detection in crowds. –   Essential Video Analytics: Reliable video analytics for small and medium businesses, large retail stores, commercial buildings, and warehouses. Detection and tracking of moving objects. –   MOTION+: Basic change detection of cells in a grid. Can be used to trigger recordings. –   Tamper detection: Detects camera occlusion, turning away from the monitored scene, extreme lighting conditions and basic idle / removed object detection.   If you would like to stop this setting, please follow the steps below.

    he Project Assistant offers two ways of importing existing project data: Option 1)   Importing a   .bpassist   file, which was exported from the app at some point and which contains all information and data ever created/entered inside the app for that specific project. Simply select the "Project Assistant" mode >> click "continue" >> and press "import". Option 2)   Importing from a   tab-separated   text   file. This option may be useful, if you have existing project data, e.g. in an   Excel   spreadsheet, which you want to transfer into the Project Assistant for further use. This article deals with   option 2   and explains the steps potentially needed before you can refer to the steps explained in the following   Youtube video   ("Import from file").

    Some devices that demand 60W or less are not powered by the NPD-9501A Midspan   Possible causes and solution(s) Some devices that demand 60W or less are not powered by the NPD-9501A Midspan The Midspan was released before the standards on mega poe were crystallized into accepted definitions at the IEEE standardization body. This device specifically targets to support power application to Bosch products that could not be served by lower capacity power source equipment. Using power devices that are not listed for this product in the datasheet migth result in power failure. Currently known   NPD-9501 Midspan  will not work with UHO-PoE-10 Housing   Solution   For products demanding 60W or less advise to use NPD-6001B Midspan.     NEW update To achieve a broader compatibility with switches and Midspans, for example the NPD-9501 Midspan and Cisco PoE+ switches (like C2960X, C3560CX and C9200). The UHO-POE-10 Outdoor housing received a product enhancement.   How to identify if UHO-PoE-10 is the new variant? The new batch contains products which contain SN starting with 404023113800040670 POE module is Blue, previous was Black!

    By default all cameras/encoders added to BVMS will be configured to start NTP synchronization against the Operating System of the Management server. Whenever a central NTP Server is available the recommendation is to   synchronize all cameras against the NTP central server.   In BVMS ≥ 11 there is a new configuration option.

    RTSP and multicast streaming There are different ways for a client to receive a multicast stream: the client can connect to the camera and request a multicast stream. In this case you would see a connection in the dashboard. If not checked, it requires at least one connected client to have the camera provide the stream into the multicast group. Clients who just joined would receive no stream if there is no client connected. the client can join an existing multicast stream without connecting to the camera. It must know the multicast group. You would not see this client on the dashboard. The streaming flag tells the camera if it should feed its stream into this multicast group, regardless of a connected client. This is an option if there are many, many clients possibly connecting to the same camera/stream. There is no difference in data amount if streaming is checked or not as long as there is at least one multicast client connected to this multicast group. Below you find a way how to pass a special connection string to request a multicast stream via RTSP from a BOSCH IP camera or IP encoder.

    S imple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a common protocol to monitor the health status of a system. Such a monitoring system typically has a central management server that collect all the data from the system’s compatible components and devices. A network management server can poll the health status of a device via SNMP requests. This article shows how to configure Bosch cameras in order to be able to answer to such requests. For more information on SNMP and supported SNMP versions please check -   What should you know about SNMP and Bosch cameras SNMP support? Note: Please keep in mind that for SNMP v3 only the the Standard MIB II file is supported. This means that only general network device performance monitoring parameters can be requested. There is no Bosch Private MIB II extension for SNMP v3. For exact support details check -  What should you know about SNMP and Bosch cameras SNMP support?

    This article will guide you to upgrade your MIC camera. This procedure is not applicable for   MIC   440 Explosion Proof version. Protocol change must be executed in our repair center, hence unit must be send to our repair center by RMA procedure.   Connected by use of USB / RS485 converter. Do not use the “Transparent” USB converter anymore as this is not compatible the latest version of Universal Camset Software 4.12 Make sure that you have the MICUSB485VTR2 (USB to RS485) Make sure you have programmed on your PC latest Firmware of Camset Software. Version 4.12 includes the MIC file 1.07 which contain all available protocols.   IMPORTANT: DO NOT connect theMIC-USBto the PCUSBport UNTIL AFTER the software has been installed. In case   Bi-phase   card has been inserted in Power Supply box, remove this PCB during upgrading of your   MIC   camera, in very few cases this could cause a connection failure.
