The new Video Management System 8.0 (BVMS 8.0) from Bosch offers stitching, GPU (graphics processor unit) decoding and 64-bit function — all of which allows surveillance operators to respond faster to incidents by monitoring a greater number of video cameras concurrently. The BVMS 8.0 offers additional cost efficiency, and it supports the latest “fusion” dual-sensor technology. The Bosch Video Stitcher, part of BVMS 8.0, seamlessly stitches multiple high-resolution cameras into a single panoramic view, allowing operators to monitor, for example, 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. The user can configure the stitched view; up to 16 cameras can be stitched together. GPU decoding gives the user more video for less power. Security and IT departments typically equip security operators with multi-monitor workstations or video walls for maximum situational awareness. The need to render more cameras on multiple displays usually places additional strain on a workstation’s performance, with more processing power needed to decode video images as the number of cameras increases. Now, superior client performance is possible by using the decoding capacities of the GPU. In this way, multiple ultra-high resolution (UHD) videos can be displayed in parallel without consuming CPU power.
