      Question   Which .NET Framework version is required for Configuration Manager v7.30?   Answer   .NET Framework is the original implementation of .NET. It supports running websites, services, desktop apps, and more on Windows. The system requirements for Configuration Manager state .NET 4.7.2 as necessary to be installed. .NET 4.7.2 is considered an operating system component under responsibility of Microsoft. If you operate in an offline CCTV network environment, please make sure that you have the .NET Framework 4.7.2 downloaded with the Configuration Manager v7.30 installer. Otherwise, the message below might appear and if you don’t have internet access you will be not able to use CM v7.30 WARNING: Configuration Manager v7.30 installation package does not provide .NET Framework 4.7.2.

    From this article you will find out how to set up the IP Matrix configuration on the VIDEOJET decoder 7000 (VJD-7513) using Configuration Manager.   The built-in IP Matrix functionality, together with a connected keyboard, allows VIDEOJET decoder 7000 to run as a stand-alone system. An operator can manage up to 32 cameras via the keyboard without any PC or management system required. System setup is quickly done with Configuration Manager. After that, no PC is required to run the IP Matrix   Note: According to the Release letter (Firmware 9.51) of VJD-7513, VIDEOJET decoder 7000 supports IP Matrix application as built-in feature. According to the Release letter (Firmware 54.8.02) of VJD-7000, IP matrix remote monitor is only possible with UDP. TCP not supported. ** VJD-7000 can be used as an extended monitor to IP Matrix in single and quad view. Please check also the following article and find out: Which are the system requirements for configuration/ operation of VIDEOJET decoder 3000/ 7000/ 8000?   A single system can support: 2 physical monitor displays One KBD-Universal XF keyboard 32 cameras 32 camera sequences 9 favorite views

    Question   Which is the VSG preparation to support ONVIF Profile T in BVMS 10.0?   Answer   Additionally to ONVIF profile S, BVMS 10.0 supports ONVIF profile T. Profile S concentrates on basic video streaming and configuration Profile T focuses on advanced video streaming like use of H.264, H265 encoding formats, HTTPS streaming and event definition is more precise there Profile T functionality is only supported for devices that are added over VSG For conditional and optional features please refer to the BVMS - ONVIF Device compatibility article. Functionalities available for all devices added over VSG (BVMS 10.0): The ONVIF relays are scanned automatically Relays can be added to the Logical Tree by drag& drop and triggered from there Thee relay status is automatically updated and signaled with an appropriate icon in Operator Client Status and triggering is possible over BVMS scripts Once ONVIF camera is added to VSG, its capabilities are automatically scanned In the “Add ONVIF encoder” dialog it was added a new device properties entry that shows weather AUX is supported by device. The AUX commands are sent to camera vis VSG and can be triggered for an ONVIF device on alarm. Note: most of the ONVIF cameras do not support all in Configuration Client available events   ONVIF vendor mapping:   ONVIF camera connection to VSG and BVMS Operator Client: Live video from ONVIF camera to VSG or Operator Client can be secured with a Secure connection check box in the Add/ Edit ONVIF Encoder dialog. The secure connection is not chosen by default. (Default HTTPS port is 443) If the live video does not have to be secured, it is possible to choose what protocol should be used: TCP, UDP, Multicast, UDP Unicast. Note: The protocol automatically is switched to TCP if Secure connection is chosen:   Ports used between ONVIF camera and VSG: RTP/RTSP/TCP (secured 😞 443 HTTPS: 443/ customizable (requires TCP)   RTP/RTSP/TCP (unsecured 😞 80 HTTPS: 80/ customizable (requires TCP)   Unicast/ Multicast UDP: has to be configured in a camera first control connection via http port (default port 80 or customizable/ RTSP port: 554)   Nice to know: For a better understanding of the  BVMS 10.0 - ONVIF camera integration with VSG , we   encourage  you to join our online Trainings from  Bosch Building Technologies Academy!

    Possible causes and solution(s) Causes   DIVAR IP all-in-one 5000 (DIP-5244IG-4HD) without the video card: When accessing the Operator Client from the Kiosk mode, the camera streams displayed on the cameos show a view that does not match the view from Operator Client running from desktop (Under the BVRAdmin account) or Remote Desktop. The scaling seems to be off. Note: The   DIVAR IP all-in-one 5000   (DIP-5244IG-4HD) is the model without the added video card. The production units of the DIP 5k AiO can run Operator Client locally on the DIP5k AIO without the higher end graphics card and display at least 4 1080p cameras @ 15fps as long as the I-frame distance was well over 30. The units   without a graphic   card   (like   DIP-5244IG-4HD) should not run the Operator Client locally; only remote viewing, with the Operator Client running on a Workstation or suitable PC, is recommended. Doing it any other way may produce inconsistent results, see attached pictures. ✓   You can run the Configuration Client from the Kiosk. ✓   If you logon to the desktop with the BVRAdmin account, you can run the Operator Client from the console (desktop) on the unit. On this unit this is only supported for diagnostics/ testing purposes. This falls under the same category as the Remote Access to the unit.                 ✓   The Central GUI should be used for "configuration and operation management." It does not mention watching videos from the same GUI.                   ✓   You can attach a single monitor to the AiO, in order to run the Configuration Client from the Kiosk (Management purposes).   ⚠️   When using a remote workstation/ computer, to run the BVMS Operator Client remotely, the workstation / computer should  meet the hardware and OS (Operating System) requirements  for such use.  ◦ The hardware and OS (Operating System) requirements can be found in the datasheet of each version of BVMS Operator Client you use. Select the product family from the official Bosch Security and Safety Systems   page, go to Downloads area and download the data sheet. ◦ Bosch strongly urges customers to use the driver versions mentioned in the following   BVMS Release notes. This ensures that the software can perform its task reliably and the specified performance. On the units   with Graphics Cards   you can run both: Operator Client and Configuration Client from the Kiosk and get consistent results, without any changes. ◦ Please also refer to the following   Datasheet  for the Models with and without Graphic Cards.   Solution   The attached .zip file contains a script to check for the credentials to run the script and set the proper scaling on the desktop, for the current user (even for the limited user).

    Question   Why the Windows license key and System ID are the same on all my DIVAR IP 6000?   Answer   These units come pre-licensed from the factory and they have an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) license activated. Please see more information about OEM on the Wikipedia link below:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Original_equipment_manufacturer According to its   datasheet, all components relevant to the usage of DIVAR IP 6000 as storage array in a Bosch recording solution are pre-installed and preconfigured. Simply connect to the network and power the unit up — DIVAR IP 6000 is ready to begin recording straight out-of-the-box.

    Question   Why the "Customer" user from the Bosch Remote Portal can see only few cameras in Video Security App?   Answer   Let's suppose that the "Customer" user should see 3 cameras in the Video Security App. When logging to the App, he can see only 2 of them. Why? This is because the "Administrator" user didn't grant rights to the "Customer" user to see the 3rd camera. Follow the steps from this article and find out how you can solve this issue.
