Jitter is solved during live viewing using PTZ cameras
WEB and LUI configuration export now share the same structure so they can be exported
and imported in both LUI and via Web Client
Fixed a bug where PTZ rights were required to double click a cameo in the case where a
user is only allowed to monitor cameras
Known limitations:
-
-
-
-
In firmware v2.1 it is possible to export more than one video channel. However playback of
the export from a memory device on the local unit is only possible for the first exported
video channel. With the new Export player you can play all exported video channels
simultaneously via a PC
The new features ‘Protect overwrite’ and ‘Restricted playback’ are intended to lock small
portions of a video (max. 1 to 2 hours). If a user locks larger portions of a video this will
affect the performance of the system. We strongly advise to only export large portions of
important video to a DVD or a memory device instead of locking it on the DVR
Some latency for PTZ cameras is shown using the Bosch Intui keyboard
The ‘Monitor adjust’ feature does not fully adjust the margins over the whole screen on a
monitor. However the complete camera picture is still viewable
The Export player is not able to play the second hour in DST. Playback is only possible via
the export player when the second hour has been exported. Playback is possible on the
local unit for the first and second hour
Import of a configuration is only possible when the export is made on a unit with the same
number of channels

In v2.1 it is possible to also import the network configuration. If DHCP is
enabled the IP address is also copied. This leads to an IP conflict message. The IP address
should not be copied when DHCP is enabled, or the message should be ignored
Previously some jitter was seen in live mode when controlling PTZ cameras. This is solved
in v2.1. Playback mode still shows minor jitter
When exporting files to a DVD RW, the system will first format the DVD and then write the
exported file to the disk. A warning is shown before the format process starts deleting all
files on the disk
The format button gives a ‘Format failed’ message for certain DVD brands, however the
format is still completed successfully in the background
The new restrict and protect features are only available for users with Administrator rights
PC administrator rights are required to initially load Web Client software. After installation,
the Web Client is not restricted for other users
Loading of the timelines in the Search/Play screen may take more time if a large number of
recording files are loaded for the selected day
New features in Local User Interface and Web Client are still only available in English.
Opening a very large file in the Export player may take a number of seconds
If used in combination with BVC, this firmware (v2.1.0) requires BVC v1.4 sr7 (v1.4.493) or
higher
Recommended BVC version:
-
BVC v1.7 (expected end November, 2014) is recommended for this firmware release.
Bosch strongly recommends upgrading to the latest firmware for the
best possible functionality, compatibility and performance.

There is no alarm/motion icon shown during playback of alarm/motion
recordings.
Exporting video with one or more gaps will result in one solid video track.
No text search supported on ATM/POS recordings.
Intuikey keyboard ‘search’, ‘freeze’ and ‘play’ functions are not supported.
The default for the recording schedule is set for regular recording for all inputs. This
means that all inputs are recorded, even when no camera is connected, and you may
use up extra recording space. You can avoid this by disabling the recording schedule for
a camera that is not available or not connected.
The ‘File Association’ setting in Archive player is disabled in this release.
The Archive Player will not be downloaded from the DVR when archiving is performed
via Web Client. Use the Archive Player available on the Bosch website (and on the
product CD), or download it by performing a local archive.
The DVR records to different video package files. During continuous recording, you can
set the duration for every package (‘Pack Duration’ setting). This means you can later
choose in the ‘Search/Playback’ screen to search for a video via the time line, or from a
list of all recorded files where video packages for Regular (R), Motion (M) or Alarm (A)
recordings are indicated. You can simply click on the required file to view this recording,
or you select one or more files for archiving.
Version 1.1.0
File name: DVR.V1.1.0.LB.R.20131112.bin (date 2013-11-12)
This release includes the following new features/improvement:
- Supports a full bandwidth control. This means that, when the bandwidth limitation is active,
all DVR network communication will be limited to the selected bandwidth setting.
- Bandwidth limit can be set to off (default), 256 kbps, 512 kbps and higher. For example,
when the bandwidth limitation is set to 256 kbps, than the network traffic will not exceed the
256 kbps.
- In this version the bandwidth limitation can be set active via a BVC site.xml connection.
Therefore BVC will inform DVR if it should stream with or without bandwidth limit.
- Second encoding stream will be configured automatically to accommodate the selected
bandwidth limit. For example if bandwidth limit is set to 256 kbps than encoding settings of
all cameras will be set to 64 kbps for the 2nd stream to optimize viewing of four cameras.
- BVC playback, under low bandwidth control, streams I-Frame only to save bandwidth.
- BVC export, under low bandwidth control, streams all I- and P-Frames. Even though this is
a slow process, no frames will be dropped.
- BVC software version 1.4 SR5 (v1.4.464) is supporting this firmware v1.1.0
Important behavior:
- Remote playback under bandwidth control:
o Recordings with 30IPS – 4CIF resolution could leads to a situation where playback is
quite difficult to stream in single speed I-Frames with bandwidth limit set to 256 kbps.

This because some I-Frames, especially with a lot of motion, are
already bigger than the 256 kbps.
In this release this is solved to start BVC playback with half-speed when the
recorder is under bandwidth control. This is the default playback speed and can
be changed by the user by pressing FWD so that playback goes to single speed.
Remote live viewing under bandwidth control:
o Lowest bandwidth limit can be set to 256 kbps. For live display the 2nd stream is
automatically set to 64 kbps per camera. For single view the live picture quality can
be improved to select 256 kbps per camera.
3.3
Version 1.2.0
File name: DVR.V1.2.0.R.20140126.bin
This release includes the following new features:
Bandwidth limit:
- To use this feature, firmware v1.2.0 must be installed in the DVR, and BVC software version
1.4 SR6 (v1.4.487) must be used.
- The bandwidth limit only applies to network connections outside the sub-net of the DVR
(WAN). Bandwidth limit does NOT apply to network connection on the same sub-net as the
DVR (LAN).
- The DVR will check automatically if a BVC or Web Client network connection request is sent
from a PC located in the same sub-net as the DVR (no bandwidth limitation), or from
outside its sub-net (bandwidth limitation).
- In the following Network screen, the bandwidth limits can be set to No (default), 256 Kbps,
512 Kbps, 1M, 2M, 5M or 10Mbps.

This new feature supports full bandwidth control. This means that, when the bandwidth
limitation is active, all DVR network communication outside the sub-net will be limited to the
selected bandwidth setting. For example, when the bandwidth limitation is set to 256 Kbps,
then network traffic to connections outside the DVR sub-net will not exceed the 256 Kbps.
When the bandwidth limit is set to a value, the encoding settings for the 2nd stream will be
optimized to stream live video for the selected bandwidth value. For example if bandwidth
limit is set to 256 Kbps then encoding settings for all cameras will be set to 64 Kbps for the
2nd stream to optimize viewing of four cameras. For 512 Kbps this will be 128 Kbps for all
cameras.
Check the ‘Auto encode setting for 2nd stream’ box to enable automatic selection (the 2nd
stream settings can always be manually changed).
Live display in BVC
- Under low bandwidth control, the BVC or Web Client will request the 2nd stream by default.
- Even when the operator on the BVC or Web client manually selects the main stream, the
bandwidth consumption will never be higher than the selected value. This may delay
streaming of the higher bit-rate of the main stream.
Playback in BVC
- During BVC playback under low bandwidth control, only I-Frames are streamed to save
bandwidth. In full screen, an I-Frame will be streamed every second.
- In 2x2 playback, the system streams one I-Frame every 4 seconds.
- When the recorder is under bandwidth control, BVC playback starts at half-speed by default.
Recordings with a high update rate and resolution could cause difficult playback streaming
for single speed I-Frames when the bandwidth limit is set low (e.g. 256 Kbps). Some IFrames, especially those with a lot of motion, are already bigger than the 256 Kbps.
The default playback speed can be changed by the user pressing FWD so that playback
goes to single speed.
Step-by-step playback in BVC
- When playback is paused, the P-Frames will also be loaded so that it is possible to step
forward and backward through all recorded frames.
- Because of the low bandwidth setting, it may take a number of seconds to load all additional
P-Frames. If immediate stepping is started after pausing, only I-Frames will be initially
started. After a few seconds, the P-Frames will be loaded.
Export in BVC
- BVC export, under low bandwidth control, streams all I- and P-Frames. This is a slow
process but no frames will be lost.
