Bosch Video Management System 9.0

February 2019 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Integrated Solutions

Originally launched in 2007, the Bosch Video Management System (BVMS) provides seamless management and interpretation of digital video, audio and security data transmitted across IP networks in over 17 000 installations worldwide. BVMS offers full scalability, enabling the expansion of video surveillance systems according to specific requirements and the management of up to 200 000 cameras. The system also features technology that keeps operations functioning even when management and recording servers fail, so it is resilient and can be trusted. With the release of BVMS 9.0, Bosch is putting the operator first with an enhanced user experience, and reduced storage consumption.

Reduced storage consumption

BVMS 9.0 fully supports intelligent streaming, an advanced technology developed to substantially reduce bitrates without compromising image quality. This intelligent data management technology is offered built-in as standard in the majority of Bosch IP camera portfolios. Enabled by the camera’s built-in video analytics, intelligent streaming smartly adjusts encoder settings based on movement in the whole, or in sections of the scene, to achieve the most efficient bitrate. Combined with built-in Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction and H.265 video encoding, bitrates can be reduced by up to 80 percent. As a result, security managers or IT managers can substantially lower their storage costs and network strain.

Enhanced user experience

BVMS 9.0 introduces a completely renewed graphical user interface (GUI), including a unified colour scheme that sees alerts, maintenance messages and notifications clearly displayed in colour against a dark grey background. This development improves the levels of security considerably having been designed to ensure the operator’s attention is directly drawn to objects or events of significance. An additional advantage is the improved contrast between text (alerts, messages and notifications), camera footage and background (controls and operator menus) which relieves eye strain and reduces operator fatigue.

Another innovation of BVMS 9.0 to enhance viewer options, is the ability to display individual alarm set-ups, whereby alarms can be sequenced in priority then automatically appear on-screen, providing the operator with a complete overview of a situation and the ability to react quickly by eliminating the need to search through a list view with multiple alarms.

The ability to limit the amount of camera views (cameos) on a single screen also saves time, as it avoids operators being overloaded with information. Moreover, BVMS 9.0 improves mouse-based control of pan-tilt-zoom cameras via a straightforward drag and drop mode, which simplifies the pursuit of moving objects. This new interface and enhanced controls have been specifically designed around the user, improving effectiveness, reducing fatigue-related errors and improving security and safety.

BVMS Plus

The introduction of BVMS 9.0 will coincide with the renewal of the licence model. In addition to the existing licences, BVMS Plus will be introduced to make it easier and more flexible to scale up and meet new demands and expansions as they happen. BVMS Plus is recommended for the video management of mid-sized applications, with up to 256 video channels which need the flexibility to grow. When customer needs exceed 256 video channels BVMS Plus can be upgraded to BVMS Professional (up to 2000 video channels), or BVMS Enterprise (up to 200 000 video channels).
