    Intelligent Insights makes use of Bosch cameras’ built-in Video Analytics to interpret video images and collect metadata from cameras. This metadata is collected, aggregated, and displayed using a series of pre-defined widgets within a user defined dashboard to visualize the data. Read on to learn how to add these widgets to the Bosch Video Management System (BVMS) for monitoring. The Intelligent Insights widgets can be visualized in BVMS Operator Client. In this article we are going to show you how to add a widget to Bosch Video Management System (BVMS). Step-by-step guide   1. Access the Use cases menu and select the use case to add to BVMS. In this example we’ll use the “Crowd detection graph”   2. Click the "Copy link" button   3. Next, access the BVMS Configuration Client and select Maps and Structure > Click Manage Resources   4. Click URL > Add a resource name and paste the URL copied from Intelligent Insights > Replace the text "localhost" with the IP address of the Intelligent Insights machine and click OK > OK   5. Click Add Document   6. Select the URL and click OK. The URL should appear under the Logical Tree   7. Click Save and Activate configuration   8. Next, access the BVMS Operator Client and select the tile where you want the widget to be displayed. Double click the widget to assign it 9. After signing in to Intelligent Insights, the widget will be visualized in the tile   Useful links:    YouTube video   Learn more about Intelligent Insights

    In terms of license activation process and compared to other versions of BVMS (<v11.0), the Bosch Remote Portal replaces the Bosch Software License Manager System (SLMS), starting with BVMS v11.0. A new user registration is required in Bosch Remote Portal and the mandatory information for license activation is the System Info file (generated in the Configuration Client) and the Software order ID (received from the Bosch order desk by e-mail → ordering remains unchanged: still utilizes the Bosch Order Desk) The remote portal will then provide a   "Activation file" which includes all activation details. It needs to be uploaded to the newly installed BVMS system. The activation process defines the start date of the software maintenance agreement (SMA - software assurance) period. The end date is shown on the License manager of the BVMS Configuration Client after activation NEW:  Software version-less ordering process: Ordering a BVMS Base or Expansion licenses is not software dependent anymore starting with BVMS 11.0 upwards. During license activation only "non End of Life" (EOL) versions are assigned to the license.   Follow this article and find out the steps that need to be performed when activating a new BVMS 11.0 license.

    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!
