Release Letter
H.264 Firmware for
Products:
CPP4 HD/MP cameras
Version:
6.32.0111
This letter contains latest information about the above mentioned firmware version.
1 General
This firmware release is a maintenance release based on FW 6.32.0109.
It is an upgrade for CPP4 based cameras only.
Changes since last release FW 6.32.0109 are marked in blue.
Note:
Due to an internal file system being introduced since firmware 6.1x and architectural changes thereof,
an upgrade to firmware 6.20 and higher is only possible from firmware 6.1x versions or higher.
Cameras with previous firmware versions below 6.1x first need to upgrade to firmware 6.1x.
Note:
Since firmware 5.92 no Autoload Decoder can be installed from the camera anymore. This video
decoder, used in browsers to view the video stream, had to be taken out of the firmware content due
to size limitations, favouring the new features. Instead, a download link to get the more feature-rich
MPEG-ActiveX has been inserted, requiring Internet access for immediate installation.

Note:
All CPP4 devices incorporate a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) with own firmware.
This TPM hardware and firmware have been enhanced over time to allow for additional
security features.
Due to security reasons, the firmware or functionality of the TPM cannot be altered in the field.
Thus, not all new security features become available on devices with older TPM hardware or
firmware revisions.
Also, license types are related to the TPM version and can only be applied when matching.
The TPM version can be derived from a few bits in the Installation Code, to be found on the
Service->Licenses page.
The bits are encoded in the 17th digit and have the following meaning:
0
8
C
TPM first HW revision, type 1 licenses
TPM second HW revision, FW < v1.3,
global type 1 licenses up to bit 96, type 2 licenses
TPM second HW revision, FW >= v1.3,
global type 1 licenses up to bit 96, type 2 to 3 licenses
Note:
Since firmware version 6.30 all cameras are prepared to receive a unique Bosch certificate
during production, assigned and enrolled by Escrypt LRA. These certificates prove that every
device is an original Bosch-manufactured and untampered unit.
Escrypt is a Bosch-owned company, providing a public certificate authority (CA).
Enrollment of the certificates in production is asynchronous to this firmware release.

3 New Features
Imaging
• Lens settings Near Focus Limits for day and night have been added.
•
Sectors in dome cameras can be more flexible set to 4, 8, 12 or 16 (default).
Security
• Strengthened password policy:
o
New passwords must now be a minimum of 8 characters including special characters.
o
Passwords are continuously demanded; message cannot be hidden anymore.
•
For full support of HSTS, an option “HSTS plus HTTP redirection” has been added.
•
Fallback to TLS 1.0 can be disabled.
VCA
• JPEG with VCA overlay is now also available in full screen view.
For details on VCA 6.30 please refer to the release notes of Essential Video Analytics or Intelligent
Video Analytics.
Miscellaneous
• Improved user interface for 802.1x settings. Interface shows an EAP-MD5 password field and
lists the EAP-TLS certificates with a link to the certificate store.
•
Security coprocessor (TPM) version is listed in system overview.
•
Aux and preposition widgets on Live page can be completely disabled in Web appearance
settings.
•
New capability “cluster group” has been introduced. MIC integrators can get the audio back
channel capability on VIDEOJET connect 7000 from this cluster group.
AUTODOME 7000
• Mosaic privacy masks are supported in AUTODOME IP 7000 series.

4 Changes
•
Limited frame rate stream capability names are presenting the frame rate as “skip” value,
which is used as divisor in relation to the base frame rate.
A value “skip 5” results e.g. in 12 fps if base frame rate is set to 60 fps, or in 5 fps if base
frame rate is set to 25 fps.
•
In preparation for ONVIF Profile Q support, planned for next major firmware release, the
default setting for Automatic IPv4 address assignment has changed from “On” to “On plus
Link-Local”, a setting that had already been in the option list before.
Though this might seem a small change, it may have an impact:
The former default IP address 192.168.0.1 will virtually become obsolete.
Instead, the camera will assign itself an auto-IP address out of the range 169.254.1.0 to
169.254.254.255 as long as there is no other IP address assigned by a DHCP server.
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Link-local_address)
The advantage is that there are no more duplicate IP addresses, which is considered
prohibited in a network.
•
VCA overlays are drawn after scaling to improve visibility.
•
An issue has been fixed where the maintenance log could not be downloaded.
•
An issue has been fixed where the wrong SD card recording status was displayed.
•
A security leak, which allowed to extract critical data from the device, has been fixed.
•
A problem with incorrect time zone info in recording packets causing gaps in timeline has
been fixed.

6 Restrictions; Known Issues
User Interface
•
If UAC is set to default in Windows 7, no snapshot or recording via LIVEPAGE is possible.
•
Video and audio may be asynchronous during replay via Web page.
•
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.
•
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.
•
In Firefox, no audio is audible on the Audio Settings page.
•
Opera mini for mobile devices cannot 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.
•
Google Chrome requires a plug-in for displaying TIFF images to properly show the reference
image.
•
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.
•
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 is available since VideoSDK 5.71 MR1.
•
Upgrading the firmware to version 6.10 may require clearing the Web browser cache to have
the new user interface style appear.
Encoding
•
Only H.264 Main Profile using CABAC is supported. CAVLC is not supported.
•
JPEG always has HD 1080p format, although stream 1 could be set to SD (480p).
•
Frame rates in low light mode might vary and cause bit rate control to produce higher bit rates
than set as maximum.

•
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.
•
For stream setting “Dual ROI” the maximum resolution of stream 2 is 288p regardless of a
higher resolution selected in the encoder profile.
•
If bit rate is already reaching maximum level due to image content to be encoded, encoder
quality regions with setting “object” cannot be improved for quality anymore and differences
will gradually be reduced.
Network
•
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.
•
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.
IVA
•
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.
•
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.
•
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,
•
For 720p cameras, when switched to 1.3MP application mode, IVA does not work. As a result
also iAE does not work, as IVA is needed for that. And therefore also User Mode “Intelligent
AE” does not work optimally (it is using BLC).
•
After firmware upgrade to version 6.10 the minimum object size seems being reset when
editing 'motion in field' task. As a proposed workaround check minimum object size and
correct value as applicable.
•
“Too dark” alarm is not triggered under normal conditions due to the cameras low-light
capabilities.

MOTION+
•
An alarm recording configured to be triggered by MOTION+ with masks may not be
operational after reboot. Saving MOTION+ configuration without any changes recovers from
that. Alternatively masks may not be used with MOTION+.
Recording
•
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.
•
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.
•
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.
•
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.
•
If a local media is exchanged, existing former recordings are only discovered after rebooting
the device.
•
Physically removing the local storage media while recording causes the device to reboot.
Recording must be stopped before removal.
•
Changing audio format while audio is being recorded may cause unknown behaviour of the
device and must be avoided.
•
5MP and larger JPEG streaming via RTSP is only possible with decoders supporting the
ONVIF extensions.

JPEG streaming via RTSP is based on RFC 2435. This RFC only allows for a maximum JPEG
size of 2048 by 2048.
With ONVIF, the original, larger JPEG headers can also be transmitted via RTP header
extensions. Unfortunately, this only works with decoders using these extensions, i.e. it does
not work with a standard VLC.
•
After modifying account settings, e.g. FTP server address, to get the changes applied either
switching posting off and on or restarting the device is required.
•
The storage system indicator status must be ignored during formatting of an SD card.
•
Forcing the camera into an overload situation may cause undesired behaviour and in worst
cases even recording gaps. It should always be ensured that the CPU load is not consistently
around or at its maximum. This can be achieved by adapting encoder settings or avoiding too
many tasks, e.g. client sessions, in parallel.
•
Sporadically occurring incorrect time zone info in recording packets may lead to gaps
displayed in the playback timeline. The video footage within the gap cannot be replayed but
becomes accessible via exporting the affected period. This may happen with firmware 6.32
below built 111.
Export
•
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.
•
With JPEG Posting active when device is booting, the first posted JPEG image may be a nocam logo.
•
FTP posting with resolution 1080p delivers JPEG with size of 1920x1072 pixels due to 16
pixel macroblock boundary of the JPEG encoder.
•
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.
•
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.
•
FTP export file size is always 100 MB if resolution change occurred in exported time span.
•
Getting the file list from Dropbox may fail if there are too many objects (files and folders).
Limit is approximately higher than 500 objects but also dependent on file name length etc.

Dome cameras
•
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”.
•
For VG5, when Fast Address was changed a reboot is required to activate it.
•
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 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.
•
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.
•
Some online help files describe a tracking icon which is not visible, documentation obsolete.
•
For optimal image performance the user is advised not to turn off contrast enhancement
during normal camera operation.
•
To improve Recorded (Guard) tour playback accuracy, Bosch recommends users record tours
using the User Interface (UI) instead of using a keyboard. In the event that the Recorded
(Guard) tour loses position accuracy during playback, users should re-home the camera using
the “Find home” button on the Live page.
•
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
•
MIC 7000 orientation can be switched between normal and canted.
•
When the user changes orientation from normal/canted to inverted (or vice versa), MIC 7000
will tilt itself up and over so that the visor and wiper are on top. If there is an attached
illuminator this would result in the illuminator hitting the MIC's body. To avoid this, MIC 7000
will not allow an orientation change while the illuminator is attached. A warning message with
“Yes/No” selection will be displayed when the user clicks the orientation radio button and the
MIC has an illuminator.
•
On AUTODOME 7000 and MIC 7000 “HDR” can be selected in the preposition mapping but
has no effect as it is not supported in these models.
•
NTCIP requires to have the SNMP port enabled to become functional. As the SNMP port,
amongst others, has been closed by default if not needed due to security improvements, it
must be re-enabled to allow NTCIP to work.

Miscellaneous
•
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.
•
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'.
•
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 Video SDK.
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.
•
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.
•
After downgrade configuration integrity cannot be ensured and settings need to be checked or
re-configured.
•
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.
•
If it shall be checked if the image is not frozen, use milliseconds timestamp to verify.
•
Intelligent Defog default is OFF under “Low bitrate” scene mode.
•
When combining CPU-intensive functions like e.g. encryption, watermarking, or dual
recording, with high quality and high frame rate encoder settings, tuning of encoder profile
settings might be required to avoid overload situations.
•
No time change is allowed during the time when the "hour is repeated".
•
Maintenance log file creation and download requires some time, though there is no progress
indication, and needs to be waited for completion.
ONVIF conformance
•
When using GetPresets command preset names are not set for scene1 to scene6.
Please check the respective release letter of a camera for further device-specific restrictions.
