Release Letter
H.264 Firmware for
Products:
CPP4 HD/MP cameras
Version:
5.90.0112
This letter contains latest information about the above mentioned firmware version.
1 General
This firmware release is a maintenance release based on FW 5.90.0098.
It is an upgrade to CPP4 (formerly known as IPBE4 platform) based cameras only.
It is recommended to apply this firmware to cameras already running FW 5.90.0098.
Changes since last release are marked in blue.
Note:
Since FW 5.50 the products support enhanced encryption capabilities to provide compatibility to
modern browsers.
Using HTTPS (SSL) automatically encrypts all payload channels (video, audio, metadata, etc.) related
to the initiated communication.
No separate AES Encryption license is required for normal use. This might only be considered if the
product reaches its performance limits and a few more percent of computational power would help.

3 New Features
Image Processing
•
Improved color reproduction for NBN-733, NBN-832, NBN-932, NBN-71013, NBN-71022,
NBN-71027, NIN-732, NIN-832, NIN-932 and NDN-733, NDN-823 and NDN-932 cameras
o
A “dominant color auto mode” is introduced in
“Advanced mode ->Camera->Picture Settings-> Color”.
This white balance mode gives very natural colors in scenes dominated by a single color.
Use this mode for scenes like the field in a football or soccer stadium or the table cloth on
a casino table.
o
For LED lighting there is a new “Basic auto mode” white balance mode in the same drop
down box.
•
Improved control over day-to-night and night-to-day switching behavior in all NBN-733 and
NBN-71013 cameras, as well as the NIN-733 and NDN-733 cameras
Day-to-night and night-to-day switchover sliders are shown on
“Advanced Mode->Camera->Picture settings->ALC”.
One is for setting the day-to-night switchover point and one is to set the night-to-day
switchover point relative to the day-to-night point.
•
Improved saturation control on all NBN-733, NBN-832, NBN-932 and NBN-71022, NBN-71027
and NBN-71013 cameras
The Average–Peak slider on “Advanced Mode->Camera->Picture settings-> ALC” allows
image improvement when bright light sources like headlights are in view.
By adjusting the slider to Peak position, more details around the highlights remain visible.
When moving the slider position to Average, darker areas in the image will show more details.
•
NBN-832, NIN-832, NDN-832 and NBN-71022 cameras having IVA now also support
intelligent AutoExposure (iAE).
Dome Cameras
•
Controls added to “Advanced Mode->Camera->PTZ Settings”.
o
"Tracker Zoom Threshold" for zooming camera out during Intelligent Tracking.
If pan and tilt are too small during last 30 seconds the camera zooms out until it reaches
“Tracker Zoom Threshold”.
o
"Tracker Timeout" defines period of time for detecting pan and tilt movement.
If it is not significant during "Tracker Timeout" camera zooms out itself.
o
Buttons to show left and right auto pan limits.
•
A custom tour can be defined on “Advanced Mode->Camera->Scenes and Tours”.

Fix Cameras
•
Permanent analog output on the box cameras NBN-71022-B(A), NBN-71027-BA,
NBN-71013-B(A)
In the “Advanced mode-> Camera Settings-> Installer Menu” the aspect ratio of the permanent
video output signal can be switched between 4:3 letterbox (default), 4:3 crop, 16:9 and off.
The video signal standard is PAL for 25 and 50 IPS base frame rate, NTSC for 30 and 60 IPS
base frame rate.
•
1.3 MegaPixel mode on selected cameras
NBN-733, NDN-733 and NIN-733 cameras produced after June 2013, and all NBN-71013
cameras allow selection of Application Variant 1.3 MP.
When this variant is activated in “Advance Mode->Camera->Installer Menu”, the camera
supports 1.3 MP resolution (1280*1024 @ 25/30 IPS).
When switching between Application Variant selections, the camera will reboot and activate
factory default settings for the new variant.
The settings made for the other variants will be lost which makes it advisable to set the
Application Variant as first thing of a configuration.
Please note that in this firmware release IVA is not working in the 1.3 MP Application Variant.
IVA support for 1.3 MP variant is being considered for a future firmware release.
Please note that for all cameras currently in the field the sensor blemish concealment in the
factory has been performed on the sensor area used for 720p resolution. This means that,
when these cameras are put into 1.3 MegaPixel mode with the FW 5.90, there is a slight
chance that blemishes show up in the upper and lower band of 150 pixels that are available in
the new mode (1280*1024). The blemish concealment in the factory on cameras produced
from end of January 2014 onwards checks/corrects blemishes on the entire sensor area.
•
User mode scheduler on all cameras supporting User modes.
The camera can be set to switch between two User Modes at configurable times in
“Advance Mode-> Camera->Picture Settings-> User mode scheduler”.
RTSP
•
Search and playback from local recordings is possible using RTSP connections.
A tech note describing the feature and the parameters is available.
•
The multicast settings on the device are synchronized with a RTSP multicast request.
o
If a multicast group is configured on the device and the RTSP request does not specify a
multicast group, the configured session is used.
o
If no multicast group is configured on the device and the RTSP request does not specify a
multicast group, a random multicast group is used.
o
If the RTSP request does specify a multicast group, this multicast group is used.
•
CGI parameters were extended to allow playback from secondary recording, e.g.
rtsp://<ipaddress>/rtsp_tunnel?rec=1&inst=2

Recording
•
A new Automated Network Replenishment method, ANR 2.0, has been implemented to avoid
recording gaps. It provides a robust recording even on sporadic iSCSI connection loss or
network outages.
To achieve this it utilizes the devices’ dual and local recording capability. The secondary
recording, which is continuously written onto the local storage medium, functions as interim
buffer for the primary recording that transfers this to the external iSCSI storage as long and
whenever the connection is established.
The time period to cover connection interruption depends on the size of the local storage
medium and the data rate of the recorded stream.
o
Information on internal fill level of the recording buffer is provided.
o
The speed of the transfer from the secondary recording buffer to the primary recording on
the iSCSI storage in the network can be dynamically controlled via playback speed and
rate control.
Please note:
Setup of this feature is not possible via the devices’ browser-based user interface.
It can be set up via RCP commands.
Bosch VMS 5.0 will allow enabling ANR 2.0 via its Configuration Client.
•
Enhanced recording modes allow alarm recording with alarm-type specific, long pre-alarm
times. Such can be triggered via virtual alarms with pre-alarm time and alarm duration
specified. This function requires ANR 2.0 to be enabled.
o
Textual information provided with the virtual alarm command is stored as metadata.
This could be e.g. POS or ATM info.
o
Bosch VMS 5.0 will use this feature in its multiple pre-alarm duration settings.
•
Some cameras have multiple sensors such as accelerometer, temperature, or humidity
sensors. Data from these sensors are added to the metadata stream and also recorded.
•
Card media that reached maximum write cycles and would cause access errors are now
mounted as read-only to ensure accessibility of stored recordings.
This state is valid until the next media exchange, then re-checked.
•
Storage configuration of two iSCSI LUNs is possible on a device for local recording.
•
Alarm recordings can be automatically protected.
IVA
•
Smart search is now also possible for faces.
•
In all IVA-enabled cameras the default analysis type is set to IVA with default task “Detect any
object” instead of MOTION+ to provide more accurate motion detection.

Miscellaneous
•
A new media data watermarking/signing method based on certificates has been implemented.
The video stream includes signatures from the device’s certificate.
By checking the signature against the certificate it received from the device, possibly even by
a certification authority (CA), a client can prove if the received video stream or playback is
really from the original source.
o
Video authentication can be selected from Off, Classic, MD5, SHA-1 or SHA-256.
o
The signature period can be configured to balance the required computational power with
other functions required from the device to perform.
o
This new watermarking method requires VSDK 5.71 or later to be functional in the Web
browser.
•
Basic support of the Chinese standard GB/T 28181 has been implemented.
This standard is based on communication using SIP protocol for connection setup and control.
It also requires wider support of Chinese characters in name fields and on-screen display.
o
Camera name fields now directly support Unicode character input.
The selection from the graphic character table is not necessary anymore but still
functional for backward compatibility.
o
A large Chinese font providing more than 30.000 characters has been added to support
the majority of Chinese Unicode characters.
•
Display stamping can now be set to transparent background.
•
The status of the local storage medium is provided in the SNMP MIB.
•
Date and time information have been added to the beginning of each line in the maintenance
log file.
•
After a network link is re-established EAPOL communication is initiated to restart 802.1x
authentication even if the switch does not initiate this.
Cloud-based Security and Services
•
Certificate chain check has been implemented.
ONVIF conformance
•
Conformance was tested using recent ONVIF test tool 12.12.

5 Restrictions; Known Issues
•
If UAC is set to default in Windows 7, no snapshot or recording via LIVEPAGE is possible.
•
Only H.264 Main Profile using CABAC is supported. CAVLC is not supported.
•
The camera date/time will be set to default (Year 2000) after power loss exceeding the buffer
period. It is important to ensure that the date/time is correct for recording. An incorrect
date/time setting could prevent from correct recording.
•
After firmware upload while daylight saving time checkbox is activated the time zone must be
adjusted.
•
After reboot, the system time re-synchronisation may be delayed up to 9 seconds for SNTP
respectively up to 14 seconds for time server protocol.
•
LUN size for local recording via “Direct iSCSI” is limited to 2 TB.
•
VRM version 2.12 or higher is required.
•
In some cases formatting errors on external iSCSI drives may occur, which might need
multiple tries to overcome.
•
In rare cases it may happen that the owner of an iSCSI LUN is not displayed correctly.
Recording is not affected, just previous owner remains displayed.
•
If a device had primary and secondary recording running on SD card and is then added to a
VRM system, the blocks used for primary recording will not be re-used, reducing the available
recording space for the ANR recording. This can be solved by re-formatting the SD card.
•
Throughput limit for simultaneous recording and local replay at 100% playback speed is:
o maximum total recording bit rate of 7 Mbps for external iSCSI recording
o maximum total recording bit rate of 10 Mbps for SD card recording, depending on
SD card performance
•
SD card recording performance is highly dependent on the speed (class) and performance of
the SD card.
•
FTP exported files which include audio in a format other than AAC must be renamed from
.mp4 to .m4a to allow correct playback in QuickTime.
•
If the memory protection inside the Internet Explorer is enabled (default setting), the automatic
installation of Autoload Decoder will fail without producing an error message.
Consequently, the replay page will not show video.
As a work-around, two options are available:
o Disable memory protection in Internet Explorer and re-connect to the device.
o Manually download the Autoload Decoder installer from the device.
The installer can be downloaded via http://<ipaddress>/setup.exe and started manually.
•
With I-frame-only recording and audio also enabled for recording, audio will be fragmented or
not audible during replay. Please disable audio recording in case of I-frame-only recording.
•
With JPEG Posting active when device is booting, the first posted JPEG image may be a nocam logo.

•
Numbering of the recorded files on the replay page is not always contiguous.
If snippets across block borders belong together, like pre-alarm and alarm recording, the
snippets become logically united and only the lower file number is presented in the list.
•
Video and audio may be asynchronous during replay via Web page.
•
FTP posting with resolution 1080p delivers JPEG with size of 1920x1072 pixels due to 16
pixel macroblock boundary of the JPEG encoder.
•
If a VCA configuration using a rule engine is switched to a VCA configuration without using a
rule engine, e.g. MOTION+ or IVA default configuration, the saved configuration is invalid.
Forensic search with this configuration may lead to undesired search results.
•
JPEG always has HD 1080p format, although stream 1 could be set to SD (480p).
•
In rare cases it may happen that no recordings can be found on PC with Windows XP SP2
and IE6. Internet Explorer may stay in status ‘connecting on replay page’. An update of
Internet Explorer is recommended.
•
Frame rates in low light mode might vary and cause bit rate control to produce higher bit rates
than set as maximum.
•
Autopan starts outside of defined range if orientation is set to “Inverted”.
•
Tilt up limit is treated as lower tilt limit if orientation is set to “Inverted”.
•
A printout was added to telnet when sending an e-mail failed.
A more detailed printout was added for the three error cases 'could not connect to server',
'authentication failed' and 'recipient not accepted'.
•
SDXC cards are formatted to FAT32 file system and not using the exFAT file system as being
mandatory for SDXC standard compliance but fully recognized and accessible.
The maximum size of 2TB is also supported with FAT32, once SD cards of that size might
become available.
FAT32 also increases portability to other than Windows platforms.
•
Aspect ratios 16:9 and 4:3 are not combinable. Aspect ratio from stream 1 will lead.
•
With GOP structure set to IBP and IBBP the I-frame distance may not exactly correspond with
the set value.
•
Installation of Autoload Decoder fails if more than one NIC is installed in a PC.
•
For VG5, when Fast Address was changed a reboot is required to activate it.
•
Replay using Autoload Decoder may be jerky when a device is close to or in an overload
situation.
•
IVA and flow need at least 12.5 frames per second video input frame rate. If IVA or Flow are
configured, minimum frame rate of 12.5 must be set in ALC mode.
•
In Firefox, no audio is audible on the Audio Settings page.
•
Opera mini for mobile devices can not work in Intranets because it gets all pages through an
opera proxy in the Internet. If there is no Internet connection no content is provided.
•
When changing GUI language, the browser cache may have to be deleted and the web
browser be reloaded before the language will be selected correctly.

•
QoS values are set according to group Video/Audio/Control for UDP packets, but for TCP
packets, only the QoS value for Video is inserted.
•
In AUTODOMEs, blanked sector may trigger a “too dark” alarm.
•
On AUTODOMEs, privacy masking does not cover the complete configured area if privacy
mask is placed too close to the edge of a scene. Move the target position to the center of the
scene before creating a privacy mask.
•
If a local media is exchanged, existing former recordings are only discovered after rebooting
the device.
•
AAC audio timestamps for UDP live video streams as well as for recording streams are based
on 90 kHz instead of 16 kHz to ensure compatibility with VideoSDK.
AAC audio timestamps for TCP live video streams are based on the standard 16 kHz
timestamps. Standard players should connect to live video with AAC audio using TCP.
•
If LIVEPAGE is refreshed during recording of Tour A/B on AUTODOMEsthe button “Stop
display” will falsely display “Start recording” but still continue tour recording.
•
There is only one configuration for IVA. When analysis type is changed, e.g. from IVA to IVA
Flow, the former configuration is lost. Due to this, it is not possible to change the analysis type
in a VCA profile switch.
•
If FTP export files contain only a few frames some players might not correctly replay such a
file, or the replay is too quick to recognize something. The exported file is not corrupt though it
might seem so.
•
After a firmware upload it may happen that the Privacy Masks and settings from Installer Menu
are set to default. Make sure to check if Privacy Masks and Installer Menu settings are still
valid after uploading new firmware.
•
Due to a limitation of the script language that is used in the background, the delay timer for
event-triggered VCA starts immediately when the configuration is set. A trigger event during
this period does not restart the timer. Once the timer has elapsed, operation is as desired.
•
On devices with VCA FPGA an outgoing IPv6 connection fails when device is initiator, e.g.
trying to resolve a time server domain name,
•
Files exported using continuous FTP backup for Rec. 2 where stream 2 is set to I-frames only
mode contain wrong timing information and play back too fast.
•
Some online help files describe a tracking icon which is not visible, documentation obsolete.
•
IP addresses 172.20.1.0/30 which include 172.20.1.0 to 172.20.1.3 are reserved for internal
communication and must not be used as device addresses. Products without internal
communication ignore this restriction and allow the use of this range.
•
For stream setting “Dual ROI” the maximum resolution of stream 2 is 288p regardless of a
higher resolution selected in the encoder profile.
•
After changing the selectable camera mode via alarm input the switch back to a previous
mode doesn't work anymore.
•
Firmware upload stops recording when it fails or is terminated.
•
FTP export file size is always 100 MB if resolution change occurred in exported time span.

•
After downgrade configuration integrity cannot be ensured and settings need to be checked or
re-configured.
•
Google Chrome requires a plug-in for displaying TIFF images to properly show the reference
image.
•
When a configuration file is loaded to an incompatible camera, e.g. a configuration file from a
HD camera loaded onto a VGA camera, encoder settings might become invalid and need to
be re-configured.
•
IE10 by default does not allow snapshots or recording from the LIVEPAGE on local hard disk
until one of the following actions is performed:
o
- uncheck the box "Enable Protected Mode" in internet options/security
o
- add the device’s IP range to "Local intranet" zone
o
- add the device’s IP address to the trusted sites
o
- start IE as administrator
•
If an intranet site is opened, IE10 automatically runs in compatibility mode.
This leads to a misbehaviour that no timeline is shown on the PLAYBACK page.
Therefore the function "Display intranet sites in Compatibility View" must be disabled.
•
Changing audio format while audio is being recorded may cause unknown behaviour of the
device and must be avoided.
•
Since JVM 1.7.25 a „Certificate Revocation Check“ has been implemented. In networks
without access to the Internet (resulting in no access to the revocation services provided by
Certificate Authorities) Web browser pages that contain a Java applet will see a significant
delay in startup times.
To avoid such delay, you may choose to disable on line revocation checking through the Java
Control Panel (JCP).
Note that disabling on line revocation checking should only be considered in managed
environments as it decreases security protections.
•
Triggered recording (backup) tasks in buffered recording configuration are not persistent over
a power cycle. Pending backups to central recording will be lost when a device reboots.
•
For optimal image performance the user is advised not to turn off contrast enhancement
during normal camera operation.
•
Since firmware 5.90 the camera module in AUTODOME 7000 HD receives a different setting
that is persistent over a firmware downgrade as older firmware doesn’t know of this parameter
to revert it.
If it is required to downgrade a RCP CGI command needs to be applied before or after the
downgrade:
http://<ipaddress>/rcp.xml?command=0x09a5&type=P_OCTET&direction=WRITE&protocol=T
CP&payload=0x80000405300381010424560000ff&num=1
•
With HTTPS connection in MS IE and VideoSDK 5.71 installed, swapping between stream 1
and 2 may cause the watermarking icon for stream 2 disappear.
This may happen only for TCP video streams with infinite I-frame distance and B-frames on.
A fix will be delivered with VideoSDK 5.71 MR1.

Changes with 5.80.0073
•
The Encoder Profile matrix is reworked to reflect the bitrates of our modern encoders in
specific scenes and re-organized to better explain the various use cases.
•
Creation of profiles with identical name is now prohibited.
•
When recording is started GOP length is set to 60 regardless of 50 or 60 Hz base modes. The
default value of 60 can be modified.
•
Retention time on local recordings now refers to the maximum time due to legal requirements.
The former minimum retention time is not required in local recordings, thus overwrite
checkboxes are discarded.
•
Tamper alarms function as edge-triggers when starting recordings to avoid unnecessary longterm alarm recordings.
•
Live Export is removed from I-Frame tab.
•
The byte order of the command CONF_SET_VIRTUAL_ALARM_ID has been corrected to
network byte order (big endian).

Changes with 5.60.0063
•
RECORDINGS page renamed to PLAYBACK
•
Tamper alarms like too noisy, too dark, reference check could have forced alarm recording for
very long periods though no relevant material is captured. Tamper alarm recording has been
changed to edge-trigger but tamper alarms are presented as long as they persist.
•
FTP name scheme changed to allow sorting by date, new scheme like
snap_cx_YYYYMMDD_hhmmss.jpg
•
Due to legal requirements, minimum retention time has been changed to maximum retention
time for local recordings.
•
To fully comply with the RFC '_' characters are replaced by '-' in the MIB file.
