Pearl River, NY (February 28, 2017) – With the release of Ocularis Video Management Software (VMS) 5.3, OnSSI introduces a Smart Driver that ensures immediate support of current and future Bosch IP cameras. As a result, mutual customers can take advantage of new IP camera releases from Bosch without the need to wait for updated drivers as traditionally required in the VMS industry.
The Smart Driver supports Bosch IP cameras running firmware version 6.3 or higher. Supported Bosch camera features include video analytic events that alert operators when pre-defined alarms are triggered, edge recording for preventing loss of video during network or server failures, multi-streaming, pan-tilt-zoom control, and more.

“At Bosch, we are focused on delivering the highest quality of relevant IP video images anytime, anywhere, and this drives continual innovation and regular releases of new cameras,” said Brad Eck, Integration Manager, North America, Bosch Security Systems. “The new Smart Driver from OnSSI makes it easier for customers to benefit from our imaging advancements. Combining detailed video from Bosch cameras with the event fusion capabilities of the Ocularis platform enables faster validation of alerts and more efficient handling of security risks.”
The driver simplifies installation, providing seamless integration and easy setup of Bosch cameras within the Ocularis VMS. This reduces installation time for integrators and lowers costs for end users. With support for both existing and future cameras from Bosch, the driver enables integrators to select the best camera model for each area of an application without the need to verify that the latest cameras are supported.
