Release Letter
Product:
VIDEOJET decoder 8000
VJD-8000, VJD-8000-N
Version:
Firmware 8.22
This letter contains latest information about the above mentioned product.
1. General
This firmware release 8.22.0031 is a maintenance release based on FW 8.22.0027.
Changes since last release FW 8.21.0028 are marked in blue.
VIDEOJET decoder 8000 uses robust, fan-less technology designed for ambitious environmental
conditions while providing maximum performance on minimum space in a nicely designed industrial
housing.
VIDEOJET decoder 8000 displays video from Standard Definition (SD), High Definition (HD), 4K Ultra
High Definition (UHD), and Megapixel (MP) cameras and encoders using H.264 or MPEG-4 encoding
at up to 60 frames per second over IP networks.

4. Restrictions; Known Issues
•
IntuiKey keyboard is not supported.
•
IP Matrix license is not supported.
•
Analogue monitors are not supported.
•
Connecting encrypted streams without proper signalling may result in crashing the software
decoder instance, resulting in black video displayed.
•
Alarms will not be signaled with a red border around the cameo if connection was established
using CONNECT_PRIMITIVE.
•
Using CONNECT_PRIMITIVE via TCP is not possible.
•
CONNECT_PRIMITIVE does not support "first available" feature.
•
Audio may remain audible despite layout change to other than single view.
•
RCP+ command CONF_ALARM_CONNECT_TO_IP is not supported.
•
Alarm connection does not support audio.
•
Maximum password length is 19 characters.
•
ONVIF 2.0 conformance is not yet provided with this firmware release.
(Earlier ONVIF specifications do not include decoder support yet.)
•
With “Reconnect last devices” active camera connections are stored and automatically
reconnected after reboot. To avoid deadlock in case of an overload situation the automatic
reconnect will be deactivated after the decoder was forced into reboot for 3 times within 10
minutes.
Due to changes to the configuration file structure, statically connected video streams are
shifted to the next cameo in the layout after firmware upgrade from 8.10 to 8.2x. If required,
streams need to be re-connected to the correct video window again manually.
•
•
HD 1080p60 streams that need to be up-scaled for display on a 4Kp60 monitor are jerking due
to an issue in Intel’s HD Graphics chip. This can be avoided by either not scaling up HD
streams to full view but rather use e.g. a quad layout, or running the 4K monitor in 30 Hz.
5. System Requirements
For configuration purposes:
• Configuration Manager 5.43 or newer
For operation purposes:
•
with Bosch Video Client 1.7 or higher
•
with Bosch Video Management System 6.5 or higher

6. Previous Revisions
6.1.
New Features with 8.22.0027
•
Enhanced overlay feature has been added to display camera stamping data or externally
introduced text in various text size and color.
•
Preparation for signed firmware file upload has been implemented, making this version the
mandatory intermediate step before upgrading to a signed successive firmware.
6.2.
•
6.3.
Changes with 8.22.0027
An issue with alarm text not immediately displayed after being set has been fixed.
Features with 8.21.0028
•
GPU decoding resource management has been improved to also consider resolutions below
1080p for hardware decoding support, increasing the possible number of lower resolution
streams. See updated decoding performance table.
•
SSD write protection introduced to avoid data loss due to power loss or power cycle
while/after configuration. All relevant write-affected disk sectors are buffered in a 2GB RAM
disk. Updating the firmware may now take up to three reboots, performed automatically by the
device.
•
The physical access to the system via keyboard is now protected by a log-in dialog. As soon
as a keyboard is connected, a login message appears that can only be closed by entering the
‘service’ password or by removing the keyboard. With successful login, standard applications
like Command Shell, Explorer, Task Manager and Control Panel are automatically started,
improving support in case of issue investigation.
o A special function within this dialog allows to set the unit to factory defaults by
entering ‘factoryreset’ instead of the password.
o New tools were introduced to help tech support investigating issues.

Note: Monitor scaling influences decoding power, resulting in less streams displayed on 4K
monitors versus on HD monitors due to higher display pixel resolution.

Features with 8.20.0033
Integration of new VSDK 6.0 introduces hardware-decoding support to boost decoding
performance for high megapixel streams with resolutions of 1080p and above.
This roughly doubles the performance for those streams.
A maximum of 6 streams can be handled by the hardware accelerator.
All other streams will be decoded by software.
