A quality Video Management System must be secure, resilient, scalable, reliable and open to safe integration of third-party products. Additionally, it should offer forensic search features, video analytics, bandwidth management, event alerts and device health monitoring.

VMS & Video Analytics

Bosch Video Management System (BVMS)

Bosch provides a powerful Video Management System that is extremely secure, robust and highly scalable. BVMS allows you to deploy a video surveillance solution with specialised features for any size of application: from a corner store to retail departments, commercial buildings through to entire metro systems and large airports. Bosch VMS  provides users with better situational awareness for immediate decision making as well as post recording video and data analysis.

  • Data security with encrypted live and stored data
  • Direct to iSCSI recording drastically reducing server requirements and costs
  • High scalability (from 1 to 200,000 cameras) future proofing your investment
  • Powerful forensic search delivering searched for events/criteria in seconds
  • Integration with major camera brands and models on the market
  •  Video recording with separate metadata stream to take advantage of powerful video analytics, machine learning, event alarms and data analysis
  • Value-for-money licensing options


BVMS Software Applications

BVMS is available in a number of formats including free of charge applications.

BVMS Viewer allows access to live and recorded data from Bosch video devices. It includes 16 camera channels FREE of CHARGE and can be expanded to up to 500 cameras. It is very quick and easy to install and use, features a powerful forensic search engine and can monitor up to 10,000 sites with access to HD footage even with small bandwidth.

BVMS Lite is a fully functional demo version. It includes 8 camera channels FREE of CHARGE and can be expanded to up to 42 cameras.

BVMS Plus addresses mid-sized applications such as offices or warehouses, allowing you to manage up to 256 cameras at a very competitive price.

BVMS Professional is the suitable solution for larger applications such as airports or commercial buildings with a maximum number of 2,000 camera channels.

BVMS with DIVAR IP Systems combines the full-featured software bundled-in with ready-to-use video recording and management appliances. Available as an all-in-one VMS and Recording package with DIVAR IP 5000 and DIVAR IP 7000 products.

BVMS Enterprise functionality is supported by BVMS Plus and Professional for large multisite applications. This allows connection of multiple BVMS systems (Lite, Plus, Professional) and / or DIVAR IP all-in-one units and managing up to 200,000 cameras in total.

Bosch Video Analytics

BVMS taps into metadata recorded on the edge within the analytics processors built-in all Bosch cameras. Bosch video analytics provide accurate and reliable results and are extremely cost effective, being supplied within the cost of the camera.

Video Analytics substantially improve levels of security, as well as making it possible to make smarter business decisions, reduce costs and increase efficiency with a return on investment that can be measured through tangible business results. Video analytics act as the 'brains' of a security system, using metadata to add sense and structure to captured video footage.

Two levels of Video Analytics are available: Essential Video Analytics supplied with
IP 3000, 4000, 5000 and 6000 series, and Intelligent Video Analytics supplied with 7000, 8000 and 9000 series cameras.


Essential Video Analytics

Essential Video Analytics reliably detect, track, and analyse moving objects while suppressing unwanted alarms from sources in the image. Tasks like multiple line crossing, loitering and people counting are available. Object filter based on size, speed, direction, aspect ratio, and color can be defined. For calibrated cameras, the software automatically distinguishes between a person, car, bike, and truck.


  • Essential Video Analytics for small and medium businesses, large retail stores, commercial buildings, and warehouses
  • Intrusion detection
  • Enforcing health and safety regulations: blocked emergency exits, no-parking zones
  • Business analytics: counting, queuing, crowding

Intelligent Video Analytics

Intelligent Video Analytics is the system of choice when you need mission-critical, long-distance intrusion detection in extreme weather conditions, traffic monitoring at intersections, highways or tunnel, high-performance people counting or other high-performance video analytics. Bosch IVA includes state-of-the-art artificial intelligence (AI) based detectors that reliably detects, tracks, and analyses moving objects while suppressing unwanted alarms from spurious sources in the image. Advanced tasks like multiple line crossing, route following, loitering, idle and removed object detection, counter flow detection, crowd density estimation and people counting are available. Object filter based on size, speed, direction, aspect ratio and colour can be defined for object detection and classification in crowded scenes.

  • Mission-critical, long-distance intrusion detection in extreme weather conditions
  • Traffic monitoring for intersections, highways and tunnels
  • High-performance people counting and asset protection
  • Live alarming and forensic search

Beyond Pre-set Analytics with Camera Trainer

Camera Trainer, a machine learning technology, enables system integrators to tailor the cameras’ built-in Intelligent Video Analytics to detect the things that matter most to their customers. The camera retains information on new user-defined objects and situations or any subsequent changes. It then refers to these new learnings when processing scenes and can be combined with pre-determined Intelligent Video Analytics alarm rules and object filters for even more accuracy and flexibility. A simple example is teaching the camera to differentiate an empty car par spot from an occupied one and automatically counting car park occupancy rates.
