If you have CPP4 cameras with 6.11 firmware (FW) version and you need to upgrade them to the latest version, normally you have to upgrade to an intermediate firmware version first.
But where you can find this firmware ?
Did you try to upgrade the firmware of your camera and the message below was displayed?
Find out from this article what might be the cause that could lead to this message being displayed:
“error 18: wrong or no signature”
Let’s suppose that you have one setup which consists in an Adam 6060 I/O module, BVMS 10.1 and a DINION IP thermal 8000 camera.
Can the state of an ADAM relay module be changed when the IVA from the camera generates an alarm?
Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) is a security guard for your server. Some primary functions of IMPI are to monitor hardware status (including temperatures, power consumption, voltage, etc.), log server data, and allow access to the server even when an operating system is not installed or is malfunctioning.
IPMI gives you the ability to manage servers in remote physical locations regardless of the installed operating system.
This procedure is applicable for DIVAR IP 6000/7000.
Follow the steps from this article and find out how you can remotely view and collect the system's event log through IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management Interface).
If your VIDEOJET decoder does not seem to work properly , most likely it is because the software (SW) version used is not compatible with the firmware (FW) version of your device.
But which are the system requirements for configuration/ operation purposes of VIDEOJET decoder 3000/ 7000/ 8000?
Do you want to configure Video Content Analysis of your device and "VCA: Authorization required" message is displayed in Configuration Manager?

DIVAR network 5000 / DIVAR hybrid 5000 support configuration of 3rd party cameras through the ONVIF Profile S protocol.
Let's suppose that y ou have ONVIF cameras connected to a DIVAR network 5000 / DIVAR hybrid 5000 on your site and you are using Bosch Video Management System (BVMS) Viewer.
Can BVMS Viewer monitor those cameras at the same time?
When you open BVMS Viewer Configuration Client for the first time, the following message is displayed:
"The system is running in an unregistered mode. Please activate your license package"
For a proper use of BVMS Viewer you need to activate the MBV-BVWR-100 License Viewer base, which is FREE! This can be found on the Bosch Security Systems Software License Manager (SLMS) platform.
Follow the steps below and find out how you can license BVMS Viewer for free.
This guide is meant to help you adding new cameras in VRM in Configuration Client and display their images in Operator Client.
Before adding a new camera there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration:
You are not exceeding the maximum number of channels allowed. Each unit has a maximum number of channels. For example:
DIP 5000 AIO the maximum number of channels is 42
DIP 6000/ 7000 AIO the maximum number of channels is 128
You have the neccesarry number of licenses installed on the system
The units come with 8 channels pre-licensed. If you want to add more cameras or encoders/ decoders, you need first to make sure that licenses have been purchased.
The system has enough storage to cover the retention time of the cameras. If there is no storage available, there is a risk that your system will stop recording.
The bandwidth available of the unit is not exceeded. For example:
Bandwidth DIP 5000 AIO: 170 Mbit/s
Bandwidth 6000/ 7000 AIO: 550 Mbit/s
PC/ Server/ Workstation
Depending on the license type you have installed in the Bosch Video Management System (BVMS), you can add a certain number and different types of cameras/ encoders. BVMS s upports 3 rd party cameras as well, but they need to be compliant to ONVIF Profile S.
This article explains how to add new ONVIF cameras to a system that runs in full Bosch Video Management System (BVMS) via the Configuration Client. We recommend using Bosch Workstations and Servers. They are fully tested and optimized for Bosch Video Management System.

Operator Client helps you display the original full image circle of a panoramic camera, its image dewarped or you can select a point of interest of the image. Cropping and using ePTZ in a cropped image is possible in Live and Playback Mode. The Image window allows a flexible resizing of the Image pane that displays a panoramic camera or any other camera.
This article provides you information on how you can switch the view mode of panoramic camera in Operator Client.

Bosch Video Streaming Gateway (VSG) is a separate “Sub-Service” of VRM that can run independently, or in conjuction with VRM. VSG acts as an iSCSI NVR for non iSCSI capable devices.
VSG is specifically designed to provide integration for 3rd party ONVIF, JPEG, RTSP, and legacy H.263 Bosch devices.
The base functional capabilities of VSG are as follows:
One VSG Server Platform can support 7 VSG Worker Instances
Each Worker Instance can support 32 Cameras
The total supported cameras for one VSG server is 224 Cameras
This article describes you how to determine the Video Streaming Gateway (VSG) throughput and performance.
The Dashboard of Bosch cameras shows a lot of data points and general information about them, including details about their temperature as well.
Is it a cause for concern if the temperature of Flexidome IP 5000i IR (NDI-5503-AL) is higher than other cameras?
Was the following message displayed when you tried to enter the product key?
"This key didn't work, please check it and try again, or try a different key."
Please find here what can you do if the Windows product key cannot be activated on your DIVAR IP.
Often, the camera image is running fine, then begins to stutter when the objects are in moving scene or in a complex environment. Your view starts looking like a slideshow, things get visibly choppy and swaying objects start to move less fluidly.
This behaviour can be controlled by changing the frames per second (FPS) value or upgrading the Firmware of your camera.
❓ But where can you find or change the frame rate & Firmware settings of Bosch cameras?
If you want to improve the image quality of your Bosch camera and you did not find the FPS option in the Web User Interface, please follow this article and you will find the answer.
So, keep reading this article and find out where you can get multiple information including the Firmware version of your camera, from a single comprehensive system overview page.
A possible situation can occur when you have, for example, one DIP 3000 with BVMS 8.0 and CPP7.3 cameras. The cameras are not working because the firmware is old.
The problem that might arise could be:
Configuration Client will display a message like: "unknown platform"
Gaps in recordings or not recording at all
VCA settings cannot be changed
Logs warning: "2020-11-22 04:49:29.339;cameraId=10.13.22.98\0\1;Sender;Error;This device has an abnormal high storage consumption. To protect other recordings, storage allocation is reduced. But this may result in recording gaps for this device"
This article aims to define the way you can display camera video via decoders. Moreover, fifteen different settings scenarios and their effects will be outlined for the live video to be displayed through the decoder.
