ONVIF conformant

VIP-X1XF Description

The VIP X1 XF encoders feature DVD-like quality H.264 video, at up to 25/30 images per second, over IP networks. The devices support PAL and NTSC sources and are available in a standard version that supports Bosch VCA (video content analysis) algorithms. The encoders provide bidirectional audio communication in parallel to video.

They also provide Dual Streaming and therefore are able to generate two independently configurable video streams. The devices are ultra-compact, so they are perfect for any application that depends on spacesaving solutions.

VIP-X1XF Functions


The encoders offer unparalleled recording flexibility. Record on network-attached RAID iSCSI storage devices or locally on SD cards. The built-in iSCSI support enables the devices to act as conventional DVRs while streaming high-performance live video across the network.

Triple streaming

The encoders use Dual Streaming to generate two independent H.264 video streams per channel. This allows viewing and recording at two different quality levels to save disk space and bandwidth. As a third stream for easier third-party integration they provide an independently configured M‑JPEG stream. On alarm, they can send an e‑mail with JPEG images attached.

Dual H.264 recording

You can record the streams independently on different media. Thus video can be recorded centrally on iSCSI drives managed by VRM Video Recording Manager and redundantly on the local media.

Recording profiles

The encoders feature a highly flexible recording scheduler, providing up to ten programmable recording profiles and allowing individually assigned camera profiles. With these profiles, you can accelerate the frame rate as well as increase the resolution on alarm, saving recording space during non-alarm periods.

Access security

The devices offer various security levels for accessing the network, the unit, and the data channels. As well as password protection with three levels, they support 802.1x authentication using a RADIUS server for identification. You can secure Web browser access by HTTPS using a SSL certificate that is stored in the unit. For total data protection, each communication channel — video, audio, or serial I/O — can be independently AES encrypted with 128‑bit keys, once the Encryption Site License has been applied.


With built-in VCA, the VIP X1 XF encoders reinforce the Intelligence-at-the-Edge concept where edge devices become increasingly intelligent. The encoders come with built-in MOTION+ video motion detection. This motion detection algorithm is based on pixel change and includes object size filtering capabilities and sophisticated tamper detection capabilities. Bosch offers more advanced VCA applications with its IVA (Intelligent Video Analysis). A licensable option, it bases the IVA algorithm on digital imaging technology that uses multi-level image analysis of pixel, texture, and motion (trajectory) changes.


View the encoder video on a PC using a Web browser, in the Bosch Video Management System, or integrate into another video management system. By routing the IP video to a high-performance VIDEOJET decoder device you can present the video with ultimate clarity.

Camera control

Configure and control your camera or dome using one of the various pre-defined control protocols. VIP X1 XF encoders provide a serial interface and alternatively support Bilinx communication over coax cable.

Easy upgrade

Remotely upgrade the encoders whenever new firmware becomes available. This ensures up-to-date products, thus protecting investment with little effort.

ONVIF conformance

Conformance to ONVIF 1.02 and ONVIF Profile S provides interoperability between network video products regardless of manufacturer. In addition, the firmware of the device supports all applicable features of the ONVIF 2.2 specification.

ONVIF conformant devices are able to exchange live video, audio, metadata, and control information and ensure that they are automatically discovered and connected to network applications such as video management systems.
