Video

Bosch Live Viewer can retrieve images from a camera or video server in 4 different modes:


  • 1. JPEG - one image at a time is retrieved from the camera.
  • 2. MJPEG - a nonstop stream of images is sent by the camera.
  • 3. MPEG4 - a nonstop stream of images is sent by the camera.
  • 4. H.264 - a nonstop stream of images is sent by the camera.

Highest frame rates are achieved with MJPEG, MPEG4 and H.264. If the camera is fast enough, one can get frame rates above 10 fps in JPEG mode.

With Bosch Live Viewer, one way audio (from camera to iPhone/iPod) is supported for cameras that streams MPEG4 or H.264 video with AAC or G.711 audio compression.

For any of the modes listed above, Bosch Live Viewer needs to know a URL to retrieve the video stream. Bosch Live Viewer has pre-defined URLs for cameras from Bosch.

Note that there are several variants for MJPEG and MPEG4 encoding. Bosch Live Viewer may or may not work with a particular implementation.
