This article describes idle and removed object detection with Intelligent or Essential Video Analytics in FW 6.30, how to configure it and what the limitations are.
Applications: - Detect parked cars in no-parking zones - Detect blocked emergency exits - Detect the removal of museum exhibits - Detect suspiciously left packages in high-security areas - Detect idle bags in walk-through areas
Limitations: - Not available on thermal cameras - Does not work in crowds - No abandoned baggage detection - No differentiation between baggage and persons sitting or lying down - Does not work in front of moving background like wind in trees or water - Does not work during illumination changes or camera brightness adaptations
This article describes the camera tamper detection options available with FW 6.30: Scene too dark / bright, global change, reference image check.
Applications: - Detect camera blinding - Detect camera being moved away from of its view - Detect the loss of sufficient overall illumination - Detect idle / removed objects, e.g. objects in front of an emergency exit
Limitations: - Not available on thermal cameras
The museum mode of Intelligent and Essential Video Analytics is an optimized tracking mode to detect whenever someone tries to reach towards and touch a valuable asset like a museum exhibit.
It can also be used in any other application where approaching a sterile zone from a more crowded environment shall be detected.
This article describes how to set up map displays of objects detected and tracked by Intelligent Video Analytics, Essential Video Analytics or Intelligent Tracking with FW 6.4x and Video Security Client 2.1.
Never lose track of an object of interest! Intelligent Tracking automatically zooms in to and follows a selected Intelligent Video Analytics object as far as possible with the camera.
For AUTODOME / MIC IP 7000, this means automatically steering the camera to zoom in to the object and follow it.
For a FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000, Intelligent Tracking is available in the Virtual PTZ video and steers the dewarped cut-out.
For DINION / FLEXIDOME IP 7000 / 8000 cameras, Intelligent Tracking can steer a region of interest (ROI) stream. This article describes how to set Intelligent Tracking up with FW 6.30 and lists the differences based on the camera types.
The name that you assign to a camera in the Project Assistant is currently not displayed in the Configuration Manager device list. This will be fixed with the next version of the Project Assistant, which is planned to be released in November 2018.
Setting camera name in Project Assistant
Current Configuration Manager view (based on Project Assistant version 1.1)
Camera name is only displayed in the "Camera name" section on the right-hand side, not in the device list on the left. You only see the camera's IP address.
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").
In December 2017 information about two vulnerabilities in modern processors were published. These exploits are often referred to as Meltdown and Spectre. Due to the nature of the flaw, many processors(AMD, ARM, Intel, etc.) are considered vulnerable. In order to use the exploit, an attacker needs to execute malicious code on the target system. It is thus generally advised to protect systems from unauthorized access (e.g. by using a strong password policy). BOSCH IP Cameras and BOSCH Encoders are based on Common Product Platform (CPP) designs. Each CPP uses a specific System-on-Chip (SOC), or a family of SoC’s, which inherit various CPU cores. Some of them include ARM cores, which are considered vulnerable. We therefore have analyzed our Common Product Platforms if they are affected, with the result: • Our Common Product Platforms CPP-ENC, CPP3 and CPP4 are not affected by the vulnerabilities. • The processors used in the SoC’s of our Common Product Platforms CPP6, CPP7 and CPP7.3 are affected. As we do not allow 3rd party code being installed or executed on our cameras, successful exploitation is considered not possible with Meltdown or Spectre. In short, our IP cameras and encoders are not vulnerable to Meltdown or Spectre exploitations. In general we recommend to always keep your device Firmware up to date.
In the Manual of the VideoJet decoder 8000 at Point 6.1: Setting up the decoder with Configuration Manager Before you can operate the unit within your network, it must have a valid IP address for your network and a compatible subnet mask. Notice! As a default DHCP is enabled in the unit’s network settings. With an active DHCP server in the network you must know the IP address assigned by the DHCP server to operate the unit. The following default address is preset at the factory: 192.168.0.1 The correct inital IP address is: 192.168.0.200
Communication can get interrupted and configuraiton might fail if the below desribed actions are not performed. If your system is affected or not is described here as follows:
There can be authentication issues between the BVMS Central Server and the Video Recording Manager in case they are installed on different Servers.
It is possible to see reports at the BVMS 8.x system alarms that VRM reports wrong version
Please check in the VRM debug logging if the following logline indications can be found
