This article lists how to configure ANR feature in BVMS and how correctly to set up iSCSI and direct replay.
Configuration of ANR in BVMS system
Insert SD card into camera and power it on.
In Configuration Client, select Devices page.
Device password and CHAP password. There are two possible configuration set ups - to configure password for both device and iSCSI connection or to leave both without password. Choose and configure one of them (3.1 or 3..2).
3.1. Set device user password and CHAP password
3.2. No CHAP password for ANR
Note: Mixing the parameters between the two options 3.1 and 3.2 will lead to issues in direct replay from SD card.
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
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
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.
Each camera imager can be configured separately and therefore many settings can be made and checked separately.
Settings in the Installer Menu can be made on a per-camera basis, including sensor mode, image rotation & lens settings with the lens wizard.
Please find in this article some settings you can do separately for each FLEXIDOME multi 7000i camera imager on the camera’s web page.
Traffic detector has been developed to cope with all traffic densities up to high density like congestions and queues in front of traffic lights. It also detects non-moving vehicles and is thus applicable for smart parking. In addition to vehicles, it also detects pedestrians.
Tunnels & Highways: o Collection of traffic statistics o Detection of congestions for automatic speed signaling o Detection of wrong way driving
Intersections: o Detecting presence and volume of vehicles
Smart parking: o Detect parked cars
Which CPP corresponds to certain cameras and encoders?
The capability of a Bosch IP camera or encoder is driven by two forces: One is the hardware capability, defined by the Common Product Platform (CPP) itself and the combined components of the product. The other is the firmware that drives this hardware. The firmware is developed on a common code basis and derived from there for the active platforms, making the feature sets of various platforms fairly similar within a certain firmware version.
This article gives an overview of CPPs that correspond to certain types of cameras and encoders. Here you can search by the CTN of the camera and find out the CPP of it. Thus, you will know which firmware you should use for upgrading your device.
A) If you would like to search for the BVMS version that can be used according to the firmware version of your DSA E2800, please check the following link:

Bosch Cloud-based Services (CBS) supports to connect 3rd party cameras from version 2.11.0 onwards. Depending on the cameras’ capabilities, there are different ways of adding such cameras to Bosch Cloud VMS.
HD Decoders are not downgrade-able lower than the factory default version.
All Video Management Systems should not have issues with newer Firmware. All their implemented functions should work.
NOTE: All new stock of VJD-8000 gets version 9.51 due to Security Vulnerabilities.

Which Bosch encoders and decoders are compatible with BVMS?
According to the BVMS 11. Release notes > 2.2. Removed functionality chapter > The digital monitor wall functionality has been removed.
This removal has impact on the BVMS Viewer → Decoders are not supported anymore in BVMS Viewer starting with version 11.0
Other devices and functions that have been removed to ensure software security:
Map migration (removed Autodesk design review installation)
Note: The Monitor Group functionality is still available in BVMS Professional/ Plus/ Lite.
The MegaRAID controller will automatically detect if a disk has errors causing the RAID volume to be degraded. An error message will appear on the desktop of that system.
The system will also generate a beeping sound indicating it needs attention:

With the DSA E2800 Bosch introduced Multipathing. It is a fault-tolerance technique that defines more than one physical path between the camera and its iSCSI storage devices through redundant network connections.
When using this feature, recording of video data and replaying video data is possible even in case of an iSCSI controller failure. To ensure also that outages of infrastructure equipment (e.g. Switch) could be covered, we recommend following Interconnection.

BVMS v10.1 and BVMS v11.0 come with a checkbox where you can logon to the Operator Client with Windows Credentials.
If you want to use this function, you need to set up the BVMS Configuration Client and browse the AD users-groups. Then, the users can sign in to Operator Client with their Windows-Credentials.
What to do when MIC IP camera is unable to perform the Object Classification in IVA detection?
Based on examples of target objects and non-target objects, the Camera Trainer program uses machine learning to allow the user to define objects of interest and generate detectors for them.
Using Configuration Manager, you can configure the Camera Trainer program using both live video as well as recordings available through your MIC IP cameras.
The camera also includes the latest release of Intelligent Video Analytics application for use on prepositions. Designed for mission-critical applications, the video analytics can reliably detect, track, and analyze moving objects while suppressing unwanted alarms from spurious sources in the image, even in harsh weather conditions. Advanced tasks like multiple line crossing, loitering, idle / removed object detection, crowd density estimation, occupancy and people counting are available for live alarming and forensic search. Object filters based on size, speed, direction, aspect ratio, and color can be defined.
In order to perform Object Classification correctly, please make sure that you have correctly:
set the correct Orientation
Save all the pre-positions again if the orientation stetting is changed
calibrated the camera
A simplified calibration mode reduces installation time significantly because you only need to enter the installation height once for each camera, independent of pre-positions.
After the camera is calibrated, the analytics engine can automatically classify objects as upright person, car, bike, or truck.)
enabled 3D tracking
set it up the tasks and followed the VCA manual.
