Bosch introduces Video Management System 8.0

Bosch Video Management System 8.0

The new Video Management System 8.0 (BVMS 8.0) from Bosch offers stitching, GPU (Graphics Processor Unit) decoding and 64-bit function, to allow surveillance-operators to respond faster to incidents by monitoring a greater number of video cameras at the same time.

The Bosch Video Stitcher, part of BVMS 8.0, combines video from multiple cameras into a single. It stitches multiple high-resolution cameras into a single panoramic view, allowing operators to monitor, for example, the stand in a stadium or airfield in an airport, as a single camera.

The user can still zoom in and out as needed, but does not need to switch back and forth from one camera to another. Additionally he or she does not need to know which camera is tracking what specifics or where a camera is located and how it is linked to the surveillance network. The user can configure the stitched view; up to 16 cameras can be stitched together. 

BVMS 8.0 runs as a 64-bit application, up from 32-bit in its previous versions. This raises the maximum capacity of a single BVMS from 30 management servers with 100 cameras per server to 50 management servers with 200 cameras per server. 

With the introduction of Bosch H.265 video compression, cameras can reduce bitrates. With BVMS 8.0, users are able to configure Bosch H.265 enabled cameras, allowing them to reduce greatly bandwidth and storage needs.  

Bosch’s new MIC IP Fusion 9000 camera combines an optical lens with a thermal lens so surveillance can continue even in a smoke-filled room (with the thermal lens giving video while the optical lens is blocked out). BVMS 8.0 allows operators to switch between the optical and thermal view. Additionally, one of the two streams (depending on which one is open) can be dragged and dropped into a new cameo. 

The BVMS Viewer also benefits from the GPU decoding, 64-bit platform and is able to display H.265 cameras.
