Note:
All CPP6 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:
8
C
FW < v1.3, global type 1 licenses up to bit 96, type 2 licenses
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

Flexible video input orientation handling has been added, including mirror and rotate (90°,
180° and 270°). This allows corridor view applications using full resolution.

[CPP4] Flexible video input orientation handling has been added, including mirroring and 180°
rotation. This allows to correct the view of e.g. panoramic cameras if wall-mounted headfirst.

FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000 cameras now allow reduced base frame rate of 12.5 fps to
increase streaming capabilities for the second stream.

[CPP4] A 1.3 MP application variant is now selectable for DINION IP bullet 4000 cameras.

[CPP7] Built-in gyro sensor is supported for automatic orientation detection.
Security

The user management has been extended to allow free assignment of usernames.
Each user can be assigned a user group representing live, user, or service level.

New user management system allows to dynamically create a user for whom the password
can be treated as token. Also timeout before user account expires is possible.

Token-based authentication implemented to allow user management based on communication
with Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services.

Secure FTP connection (FTP over TLS) is implemented.

ICMP redirect messages are not accepted anymore by default. Acceptance can be re-enabled
via RCP+ command, if needed.

Video authentication is now also possible on RTSP streaming. It can be enabled with CGI
parameter ‘auth=1’ which requests picture info packets (payload type 97).
Recording

Recording to iSCSI now supports LUN size up to 64 TB.

A PTZ preposition can be stored in a recording profile, allowing to record only a ‘region of
interest’ (ROI) of the full image.
ONVIF

ONVIF encoder profile settings can be verified via http://<ipaddress>/onvif_encoder_profiles.

Manual focus and iris control is now supported via ONVIF command.

Tamper detection alarms are now forwarded to and included in ONVIF event services.

Video Fire Detection

Automatic mask detection has been added to AVIOTEC IP starlight 8000 camera.

Relay 1 automatically follows video fire detection alarm on AVIOTEC IP starlight 8000 camera.
VCA

Web page layout has been improved for better usability and larger video for configuration.

Video analytics now fully support 16 tasks in RCP+ and IVA Task Script Language.

Intelligent Tracking is now also available on cameras 2 and 3 of FLEXIDOME IP panoramic
7000 cameras in dewarping mode.

JPEGs can now include VCA overlays in Live page, alarm e-mails and JPEG Posting.
For JPEG snapshot a new query parameter ‘VCAOverlay’ can be added to the URL, e.g.
http://<ipaddress>/snap.jpg?VCAOverlay=1.

Video can now be paused during VCA configuration.

Reference image is now stored as JPEG instead of TIFF for broader compatibility.

Tamper detection “too bright / too dark” was no more functional due to too high dynamic on
our cameras.
To solve this issue, sliders for the brightness level have been added for manual adjustment.
For details on VCA 6.30 please refer to the release notes of Essential Video Analytics or Intelligent
Video Analytics.
Miscellaneous

HTML5 video tag is used to display a continuous MP4 video file from the camera on browsers
not supporting NPAPI plug-ins (MPEG-ActiveX) like Firefox, Chrome and MS Edge.

A “Links” section in the main navigation (blue top bar) has been added, leading to a
DownloadStore page providing latest tools, apps and supportive software.

4 Changes

Due to the introduction of image rotation, the high-resolution/low-framerate capability for
stream 2 is conflicting and thus no more available on FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000
cameras.

“Image too noisy” is removed as it never occurs due to the high dynamic of image processing.

Downscaled images 4CIF/CIF are now encoded as PAL resolution (704x576 resp. 352x288)
when camera is set to 25/50 fps base frame rate.

Fixed a potential recording issue which could cause recording to stop due to insufficient
storage error handling under rare error conditions, like e.g. massive irregular network
connection interrupts to storage system.

Removed non-supported mirroring option from FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000 MP cameras
in dewarping mode.
5 System Requirements

6 Restrictions; Known Issues
User Interface

If UAC is set to default in Windows 7, no snapshot or recording via LIVE page is possible.

Video and audio may be asynchronous during replay via Web page.

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 LIVE page 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.

Upgrading the firmware to version 6.10 may require clearing the Web browser cache to have
the new user interface style appear.

In dewarped multi cameo views (like quad and double panoramic), selection of cameo can be
done in the scene and ROI menu only, not by clicking in the video

Encoding
 Only H.264 Main Profile using CABAC is supported. CAVLC is not supported.

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 432p regardless of a
higher resolution selected in the encoder profile.

Limited frame rate stream capability names are based on 25/30 fps and rounded for better
readability. On devices running with 60 fps encoding and stream capability of e.g. 720p6/7
selected for stream 2, the resulting frame rate will be double, namely 12.5 respectively 15 fps.
Image Processing

For optimal image performance the user is advised not to turn off contrast enhancement
during normal camera operation.

In cases where the camera is configured to do very little noise filtering (far lower than default
settings of the camera), in a low-light scene the bit rate needed for encoding the unfiltered,
low-noise image is high. If the target and maximum encoding bit rate values do not match this
bit rate requirement, blockiness or stuttering images may result. On these occasions please
apply stronger temporal or spatial filtering and/or reduce sharpness.

When resolution 3840x2160 or 3584x2016 is selected, no B frames are supported and the
GOP structure is always IP despite B frames can be configured in the encoder profile.

ROI PTZ combined with IDNR enabled may blur image when no motion is present in the
scene.
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+.
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.

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.


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,

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.

IVA configuration is lost during upgrade from FW 5.9x to FW 6.1x.
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.

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.

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.

When local SD-card recording is active, both live Stream1 and the recorded stream will use
Encoder Profile parameters of Profile 3. The default profile 3 parameters may in certain
conditions lead to encoding artefacts in the recorded stream and live Stream1. In this case,
consider the following changes: Lower the resolution, lower the frame rate, lower the
sharpness and/or raise temporal/spatial filtering.

Physically removing the local storage media while recording causes the device to reboot.
Recording must be stopped before removal.
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.

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.

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.

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.

Link-local addresses from the Auto-IP range (169.254.1.0/16) must not be entered manually.

Reboot will not be performed automatically after uploading a SSL certificate or SSL key; must
be done manually.
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 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.

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 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.

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.

After changing the application variant in the Installer menu, the camera reboots and starts
counting down time until it tries to reconnect to the rebooted camera, IE doesn't always

reconnect so it keeps showing only the waiting circle (named hourglass in earlier times) In this
case resetting the browser with ctrl+F5 will re-establish connection with the camera..

Please take note that, whenever you change the application variant, the camera resets to
factory defaults.

Analogue output does not support 90° and 270° rotation.

FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000 and AVIOTEC cameras only support 180° rotation.

7.2
17.08.2016
A high-resolution/limited-frame-rate capability has been introduced for stream 2 on various
cameras.
Changes with FW 6.22.0008

Writing to ONVIF MaxFrameRate is now possible to improve compatibility with clients not
using encoding interval. Written values are presented in same format when read.

The microphone can be permanently blocked, irreversibly for users, via a global license key to
allow use of the cameras in countries where audio input is legally not permitted.
License type 2:
o
12-01.63.01-380AAC7E-B71E0D3D-6ADCC50C-6F296E08-F3AFBB71
The permanent block can only be lifted by releasing this license via our service organization.
If not legally required to completely disable the audio function, audio can simply be switched
off, or the microphone sensitivity set to zero, always reversible through configuration.
The global license type 1 as being presented with release notes of FW 6.00.0079 is not
functional on CPP6 platform devices.

New Features with FW 6.21.0008

7.4
DINION IP panoramic 7000 has been enhanced with a high-resolution/low-frame-rate mode
for stream 2, providing 2640x2640 pixels at 5 frames per second while the first stream
provides the same resolution at full frame rate.
Changes with FW 6.21.0008

An issue with fragmented EAP-TLS transfer has been fixed, allowing support for Microsoft
Windows NPS and RADIUS.

An issue with ONVIF Analytics Service has been fixed.

GUI translations and some embedded help files have been updated.

Wrong wording on time protocol settings has been fixed.
Note:
To avoid a potential timing issue with older bootloader firmware that, in combination with the
actual FW 6.21 load pattern, may very rarely lead to a camera reboot, this firmware release
includes an updated bootloader that is applied if an outdated bootloader is being detected
during firmware upgrade, opening a short window of approximately one second of vulnerability
against power loss.
Be especially careful that the camera does not lose power during firmware upgrade.

With FW 6.10 necessary files can be installed by uploading a supplementary firmware file.
For successive firmware versions the sections will be recombined.

A customer logo up to 128x128 pixels with a depth of 256 colors can be uploaded as BMP file
to be displayed in the camera name block. Options for placement are left, right or logo only.
7.10 Changes with 6.10.0129

IPv6 operational improvements, e.g. netmask extended to 64 bit.

Reference image is deleted when device is set to factory default.

Larger font used for display stamping creates better visibility on large resolution.

7.11 Changes with 6.01.0008

Various small bug fixes and improvements.

ONVIF conformance was tested using recent ONVIF test tool 14.12SR1.
7.12 Features with 6.00.0079
Image Processing

Support of FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000 12MP 360° and 180° cameras.
New Web browser user interface

A new style and new colors are being introduced, according to the latest Bosch User Interface
Style Guide for Software User Interfaces. Together with usability improvements this provides a
completely new and improved user experience.

Easier navigation is possible due to the main topics in the blue bar in the header of the Web
pages as well as icon-supported navigation through the configuration pages.

Live and replay pages have been enhanced with more intuitive controls and a new timeline
which is easier to handle and better recognizable.

Live video preview is shown on most configuration pages whenever sufficient space available.

Privacy masks, encoder quality regions and IVA fields can be drawn as polygons instead of
rectangles, all with the same controls.

No Java applets are used on the Web pages anymore.
IVA

Object classification added with the classes "upright person", "bike", "car", "truck".

Mounting position and angle of panoramic cameras can be added to aid calibration for
dewarping in the client software.

Geolocation parameters can be added which are passed into metadata. This allows
management systems to directly position the camera, or objects tracked by this camera into a
map.

Recording

Automated Network Replenishment (ANR) 2.0 has been enhanced to provide more
robustness against SD card failures, including the possibility to add alternative storages.

ANR can be configured through the Web interface with a single click.

In ANR mode, SD card fill level is shown on recording status page.

SD cards are automatically detected, prepared for use, and recording started without
configuration required. SD card is added to managed storage media even if not inserted.

A storage system indicator icon has been added to the Web page’s title, providing a quick
indication about the health status of SD card recording by green, yellow, or red color.

An alarm is created if recording stops, usable in Alarm Task Scripting.
Network

Auto-IP assignment for IPv4 (aka Link local, APIPA) has been added as an alternative setting
to pure DHCP. In this mode, if no DHCP server is responding after 10 seconds, a link-local
address will be chosen.

IPv6 stateless auto-configuration has been enabled to allow IPv6 routability. The Auto-IPv6
address is displayed in Web browser menu below the manual IPv6 address, but is not
configurable.

802.1x has been enhanced by EAP/TLS using specific certificate. Certificates for client and
server side can be uploaded to be used for authentication.

After a network link is re-established EAPOL communication is initiated to restart 802.1x
authentication even if the switch does not initiate this.

Secure SMTP over Transport Layer Security (TLS/SSL) is supported according to RFC-3207.
Connection is established using plain text on port 25; then TLS is negotiated with “StartTLS”
command.
ONVIF conformance

A timeout range for continuous move has been added.

ONVIF GetDigitalInputs is now implemented.

CONF_ONVIF_STREAM_URI_EX allows storing a stream URI extension that is appended to
the ONVIF stream URI.

ONVIF can be switched off, advantageous in installations that have native RCP integration to
avoid accidental access through ONVIF clients. ONVIF remains enabled by default, of course.
