Release Letter
H.264 Firmware for
Products:
CPP4 HD/MP cameras
Version:
5.80.0073
This letter contains latest information about the above mentioned firmware version.
Corrected version. Changes in blue.
1 General
This firmware release is a maintenance release based on FW 5.70.0039.
It is an upgrade to CPP4 (formerly known as IPBE4 platform) based cameras only.
The platforms have been renamed for a more generic recognition to “Common Product Platform”,
short CPP, followed by the architecture-related number or suffix.
The filenames are adapted accordingly.
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.

4 Changes
•
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).

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 AutoDomes the 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.
Please check the respective release letter of a camera for further device-specific restrictions.

•
All video, also the downscaled stream, is provided in 16:9 aspect ratio.
•
Recording of I-frames only is possible from both, stream 1 and stream 2.
•
Recordings can be exported as *.mp4 files to a FTP server, either manually or after an alarm.
The resulting file can be replayed with standard players.
•
Replay from local recording via Web interface has been re-introduced. This allows replay over
bandwidth-limited connections and connections using NAT.
•
An “early warning” message is created when the device is in danger to run out of recording
blocks. This message can also be sent as SNMP trap.
•
In alarm e-mails with JPEGs attached, JPEG name includes camera name, date and time
information for easier differentiation and archiving.
•
Privacy masks are automatically excluded from alarm creation in MOTION+ and IVA.
•
Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA) is enhanced to cover HD resolution.
•
IVA allows Crowd Level Detection in a field.
•
New IVA software framework for more reliable detection. This allows reduction of false alarms
caused by shadows or windy elements, more stable object ID, pre-estimation of trajectory of
an object, and improvement of the detection of small and slow objects.

New IVA versions can be tested during a 30-day trial period, beginning with upgrading to a
firmware including a new IVA version.
This special activation key can only be applied once per new IVA version.
To start the 30-day trial period a special Global License Activation Key must be entered via
the License page in the Web browser or the Configuration Manager:
02-08.20.2D0-C3C6D6F8-0FF05DE6-C9983538-45DB6B3F-F2A5AF58
This Global License Key is valid for all applicable and IVA-capable products.
To avoid typing errors it is recommended to copy & paste the key from this release letter.
•
MOTION+ alarms can be applied with a debounce time of 1 second to reduce event load to
management systems.
•
Multiple MOTION+ or IVA alarms can be aggregated over a configurable time period.
•
Recording of transparent (e.g. ATM or POS) data via plain TCP channel is possible.
Data is stored as metadata and can be searched later on.
•
The time limit for tamper detection with reference image has been extended to 9999 seconds.
•
RTSP audio connections use 8 kHz timestamps to allow audio with standard media players
like QuickTime or VLC.
•
L16 audio is possible in 16 kHz quality for live connections.
This mode requires approx. 500 kbps for such an audio stream.
Recording of 16 kHz audio is also possible.
•
UPnP discovery support can be enabled or disabled.
•
Extended multi-connectivity by increasing RCP+ connections to 100 minimum.
•
Decentralized event pre-processing is possible via Alarm Task scripting.
Devices can register for RCP messages and payload as input for script actions.
