The purpose of this article is to help you disabling the compass character from the Screen Display (OSD) of the PTZ camera via its web interface .
This example was troubleshooted on one AUTODOME dynamic 7000 HD camera with FW version 7.10.0076
In some cases the IVA tasks can get lost after firmware update.
There are 2 ways. In both ways it's not guaranteed that all task shall work afterwards since new firmware version can contain a new IVA version with new features. So please double check afterwards. It shall at-least save some time instead of starting from scratch.
NetApp SANtricity Dynamic Disk Pools (DDP) technology represents a significant advancement in storage system, data protection and data management. As disk capacities continue to grow without sufficient increases in data transfer rates, traditional RAID rebuild times are getting longer, even up to several days. This slow rebuild results in much more time with degraded performance and exposure to additional disk failures.
Logs are definitely important. We would even say they are the most important thing for a system to function properly.
At some point, the Central Support Team may ask you to provide them with the log files of your system.
The steps below can be used for the following models:
DIVAR AN 3000/5000 ,
DIVAR Hybrid 3000/5000,
DIVAR Network 2000/3000/5000
You can collect Service logs from the unit using two methods. Both methods will save the service logs as a password protected ZIP file ( Example: ServiceLog-20141204T172254.zip ).
Method 1 : from Local User Interface
Method 2 : remote, using a browser
The default SMTP port number for Bosch IP cameras is 25. The required SMTP port can differ depending on the service provider. From FW 5.80.0073 onwards it is possible to change the SMTP port using Alarm Task Script Language (ATSL).
Before you can operate your VIDEOJET decoder 7000/ 8000 within your network, it must have a valid IP address for your network and a compatible subnet mask.
This articles explains how you can change the IP Address of VIDEOJET decoder 7000/ 8000 using Configuration Manager.
This article explains you how and where you can get the logs of your camera. The system logs are extremely useful for troubleshooting recurring or obscure problems, as they provide a record of all work performed on the system and may shed light on hard-to-spot interactions between seemingly unrelated symptoms.
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
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 camera sequences

Perhaps you are wondering how to set the maximum retention time on a Divar Network? Some of our customers asked about this option.
Well, in DIVAR Network and Hybrid there is not retention time.
But you can set the automatically deleting time, that is more or less the same.
Open one Browser and type your device IP address
Login with the administrator account
Go to Settings > Storage > Recording
Fill in the box with the desired automatic deletion time
Another option is to make this change directly in the local interface of the unit.

This article will review the settings required to configure Windows as a NTP time server.
If you are running VRM and have the Time Server enabled, you must disable the Time Server before performing the following.

Find below Gmail SMTP settings which you have to set in your EMAIL screen of DIVAR Menu.
SMTP Server address: smtp.gmail.com
Username: Your Gmail e-mail adress
Password: Your Gmail password
Port (TLS 😞 587
Port (SSL 😞 465
TLS / SSL required: Yes
TLS : Transport Layer Security SSL: Secure Sockets Layer
What happens if you do not select either one?
If neither SSL nor TLS is used , then the communication line can easily become a party line for eavesdroppers, all data transmitted between DIVAR and e-mail account for anyone to see.
Which is the VSG preparation to support ONVIF Profile T in BVMS 10.0?
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)

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!
It is possible to add ONVIF compliant cameras to Bosch Video Management System as live only devices or as VSG devices (then the cameras will also record). This article explains how to add an ONVIF camera as VSG device in full Bosch Video Management System (BVMS 10.1).
We recommend using Bosch Workstations and Servers. They are fully tested and optimized for Bosch Video Management System.
