Upcoming with FW 7.10 and CM 6.20, Camera Trainer is a licensable Intelligent Video Analytics module that allows uses to define objects of intereste and train their own detectors for them based on examples of target objects and non-target objects. In contrast to the moving objects detected in general by IVA 7.10, Camera Trainer allows detection of both moving and non-moving objects, separates and immediately classifies them. Training can be done both on live video as well as on recordings available through the respective camera. The resulting detectors can be down- and uploaded for distribution to other cameras.
Camera Trainer configuration should be done in Configuration Manager.
The attached fact sheet lists the cameras that support Camera Trainer. The attached technical note describes in-depth what Camera Trainer is, how it works, what to use it for and what not, and how to configure it. The configuration is also shown in the following how-to videos:

please find the release information about Configuration Manager 7.00.0111.
Configuration Manager 7.0 introduces a complete rework of the user interface, following the latest Bosch application style guide, with many improvements in readability, compactness and improved navigation for a better user experience.
Look-and-feel according to latest Bosch style guide, improvements on readability of form elements.
Screen space optimization due to higher density of presented information, optionally vertical navigation bar.
Scaling invariant user controls enable smooth support for high DPI screens.
Avoiding horizontal scrolling by adaptive column reduction.
New easy to use filters, supporting “Google”-like free text matching on various identifiers as well as down into device properties.
VCA pages with new sub-navigation, larger video presentation for easier task setup, improved calibration and Camera Trainer pages, in-field editing, object filter page, and providing tooltips and direct links to help pages.
Strong password demand during first start of the program. Working without password prompts extra warning pop-up and requires specific user action.
Certificate creation now allows including usage. This enables fully automated batch certificate creation for larger sets of devices. The creation dialog shows the progress of key creation.
Support for new AUTODOME IP 7000i and MIC IP 7100i with firmware 7.52, introducing changes and enhancements on picture settings and pre-position settings pages.
Setting an alternate home position is now possible for applicable moving cameras.
Support for new DINION and FLEXIDOME IP 3000i series with firmware 7.51.
An RCP+ message and/or a SNMP trap from cameras, if time sync fails, can be configured.
Assignment option for CHAP password on DSA E series storages added. Password must be from 12 to 16 characters long.
Playback permission is configurable for IP Matrix since decoder firmware 9.60.
Support for Bosch Video Client (BVC) and BVIP Lite Suite is excluded.
The configuration backup of the Configuration Repository is now referring to the MAC address of a device instead of the IP address.
Network scan is now also possible for IPv6 networks.
Context menu and some configuration pages cleaned-up for decoders.
Improved feedback on firmware upload status and errors.
The character ‘+’ is not allowed anymore for camera passwords since it is also blocked in cameras from firmware 7.50 onwards.
The image posting tab is moved from ‘Network’ to ‘Recording’, and a link to configure accounts was added.
Secure crypto-coprocessor version is now displayed on camera’s compatibility tab.
Configuration Manager 7.0 has excluded support for Bosch Video Client and BVIP Lite Suite. Installing it over an existing installation of a previous version will encrypt the database with strong encryption and thus render it unusable for the older software.
Please refer to the release notes for details:
The software package will be loaded into ST4 the next days and uploaded to the product catalogue with the next sync.
It has already been uploaded to DownloadStore as well.

There are several Video Content Analysis (VCA) algorithms available in Bosch IP cameras: Tamper Detection, MOTION+, Essential Video Analytics, Intelligent Video Analytics and Intelligent Tracking. To receive alarm events from them and visualize the results, a client is needed. Each client can choose to present only a part of information and in a different way. The attached technical note gives a high-level overview of the clients supplied by Bosch and the different integration possibilities into 3rd party systems available today.
Further information concerning integration into 3rd party software can be found at the Integration Partner Program (IPP) webpage.
