Release Letter
H.264 Firmware for
Products:
CPP4 HD/MP cameras
Version:
6.10.0128
This letter contains latest information about the above mentioned firmware version.
1 General
This firmware release is a feature release based on FW 5.93.0025 respectively a maintenance release
based on the formerly released FW 6.10.0126.
It is an upgrade to CPP4 based cameras only.
Changes since last release FW 6.10.0126 are marked in blue.
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 anymore.
Important 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.

5 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.
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.
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.
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.
Fixed cameras
•
In case if there is no image displayed after upgrade to new firmware, please re-power the
camera. Applicable cameras :
o FLEXIDOME IP INDOOR 5000
o FLEXIDOME IP OUTDOOR 5000

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 AUTODOMEsthe 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.

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 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.
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.

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.
Please note:
Setup of this feature is not possible via the devices’ browser-based user interface.
It can be set up via RCP commands.
Bosch VMS 5.0 will allow enabling ANR 2.0 via its Configuration Client.
•
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 colour.
•
An alarm is created if recording stops, usable in Alarm Task Scripting.

IPv6 stateless autoconfiguration 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.
•
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.
•
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
•
Conformance was tested using recent ONVIF test tool 13.12 SR1.
•
A timeout range for continuous move has been added.
•
ONVIF GetDigitalInputs is now implemented.
Miscellaneous
•
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.
•
Platform type (CPP) is now displayed in System Overview page.
•
Maintenance page has been reworked to not require Java components any more.

Wireless LAN configuration
•
The Wireless LAN camera TINYON IP 2000 W is equipped with a WPS push-button but also
allows other ways of configuration.
These are the ways to configure the wireless LAN interface and run the camera on wireless
network:
o Manually, using Web browser via Ethernet cable connection:
1. Enter SSID
2. Enter password
3. Press „Set“ button
4. Unplug Ethernet cable and reboot the camera.
o
By scan, using Web browser via Ethernet cable connection:
1. Execute scan
2. Select access point (AP)
3. Enter password
4. Press „Set“ button
5. Unplug Ethernet cable and reboot the camera.
o
By WPS push-button, no network connection::
1. Push WPS button on camera. The blue LED blinks slowly.
2. Push WPS button on AP.
3. Wait until blue LED lights continuously.
o
By WPS PIN:
1. Execute scan
2. Select AP
3. Click „Connect with PIN“.
4. At the access point, select the function „Add client with WPS PIN” or similar and
enter the camera PIN within 2 minutes.
5. Wait until the AP shows successful connection. At the same time, the blue LED
lights continuously.
6. Unplug Ethernet cable and reboot the camera.
If a wireless connection already exists while WPS PIN is being activated, the
existing connection will be interrupted during connection attempt to the new AP.
On success, the new AP will be connected.
On failure, connection to the former AP will be resumed.
During the attempt the Web browser page cannot receive status updates and will
simply count down until connection re-establishment.
Generally, if the camera was first connected via Ethernet cable, the camera must be rebooted
without Ethernet cable connected to switch to wireless LAN connection.

NBN-71027, NIN-732, NIN-832, NIN-932 and NDN-733, NDN-823 and NDN-932 cameras
o
A “dominant color auto mode” is introduced in
“Advanced mode ->Camera->Picture Settings-> Color”.
This white balance mode gives very natural colors in scenes dominated by a single color.
Use this mode for scenes like the field in a football or soccer stadium or the table cloth on
a casino table.
o
For LED lighting there is a new “Basic auto mode” white balance mode in the same drop
down box.
•
Improved control over day-to-night and night-to-day switching behavior in all NBN-733 and
NBN-71013 cameras, as well as the NIN-733 and NDN-733 cameras
Day-to-night and night-to-day switchover sliders are shown on
“Advanced Mode->Camera->Picture settings->ALC”.
One is for setting the day-to-night switchover point and one is to set the night-to-day
switchover point relative to the day-to-night point.
•

and NBN-71013 cameras
The Average–Peak slider on “Advanced Mode->Camera->Picture settings-> ALC” allows
image improvement when bright light sources like headlights are in view.
By adjusting the slider to Peak position, more details around the highlights remain visible.
When moving the slider position to Average, darker areas in the image will show more details.
•
NBN-832, NIN-832, NDN-832 and NBN-71022 cameras having IVA now also support
intelligent AutoExposure (iAE).
Dome Cameras
•
Controls added to “Advanced Mode->Camera->PTZ Settings”.
o
"Tracker Zoom Threshold" for zooming camera out during Intelligent Tracking.
If pan and tilt are too small during last 30 seconds the camera zooms out until it reaches
“Tracker Zoom Threshold”.
o
"Tracker Timeout" defines period of time for detecting pan and tilt movement.
If it is not significant during "Tracker Timeout" camera zooms out itself.

Fix Cameras
•
Permanent analog output on the box cameras NBN-71022-B(A), NBN-71027-BA,
NBN-71013-B(A)
In the “Advanced mode-> Camera Settings-> Installer Menu” the aspect ratio of the permanent
video output signal can be switched between 4:3 letterbox (default), 4:3 crop, 16:9 and off.
The video signal standard is PAL for 25 and 50 IPS base frame rate, NTSC for 30 and 60 IPS
base frame rate.
•
1.3 MegaPixel mode on selected cameras
NBN-733, NDN-733 and NIN-733 cameras produced after June 2013, and all NBN-71013
cameras allow selection of Application Variant 1.3 MP.
When this variant is activated in “Advance Mode->Camera->Installer Menu”, the camera
supports 1.3 MP resolution (1280*1024 @ 25/30 IPS).
When switching between Application Variant selections, the camera will reboot and activate
factory default settings for the new variant.
The settings made for the other variants will be lost which makes it advisable to set the
Application Variant as first thing of a configuration.
Please note that in this firmware release IVA is not working in the 1.3 MP Application Variant.
IVA support for 1.3 MP variant is being considered for a future firmware release.
Please note that for all cameras currently in the field the sensor blemish concealment in the
factory has been performed on the sensor area used for 720p resolution. This means that,
when these cameras are put into 1.3 MegaPixel mode with the FW 5.90, there is a slight
chance that blemishes show up in the upper and lower band of 150 pixels that are available in
the new mode (1280*1024). The blemish concealment in the factory on cameras produced
from end of January 2014 onwards checks/corrects blemishes on the entire sensor area.
•
User mode scheduler on all cameras supporting User modes.
The camera can be set to switch between two User Modes at configurable times in
“Advance Mode-> Camera->Picture Settings-> User mode scheduler”.
RTSP
•
Search and playback from local recordings is possible using RTSP connections.
A tech note describing the feature and the parameters is available.
•
The multicast settings on the device are synchronized with a RTSP multicast request.
o
If a multicast group is configured on the device and the RTSP request does not specify a
multicast group, the configured session is used.
o
If no multicast group is configured on the device and the RTSP request does not specify a
multicast group, a random multicast group is used.
o
If the RTSP request does specify a multicast group, this multicast group is used.
•
CGI parameters were extended to allow playback from secondary recording, e.g.
rtsp://<ipaddress>/rtsp_tunnel?rec=1&inst=2

Recording
•
A new Automated Network Replenishment method, ANR 2.0, has been implemented to avoid
recording gaps. It provides a robust recording even on sporadic iSCSI connection loss or
network outages.
To achieve this it utilizes the devices’ dual and local recording capability. The secondary
recording, which is continuously written onto the local storage medium, functions as interim
buffer for the primary recording that transfers this to the external iSCSI storage as long and
whenever the connection is established.
The time period to cover connection interruption depends on the size of the local storage
medium and the data rate of the recorded stream.
o
Information on internal fill level of the recording buffer is provided.
o
The speed of the transfer from the secondary recording buffer to the primary recording on
the iSCSI storage in the network can be dynamically controlled via playback speed and
rate control.
Please note:
Setup of this feature is not possible via the devices’ browser-based user interface.
It can be set up via RCP commands.
Bosch VMS 5.0 will allow enabling ANR 2.0 via its Configuration Client.
•
Enhanced recording modes allow alarm recording with alarm-type specific, long pre-alarm
times. Such can be triggered via virtual alarms with pre-alarm time and alarm duration
specified. This function requires ANR 2.0 to be enabled.
o
Textual information provided with the virtual alarm command is stored as metadata.
This could be e.g. POS or ATM info.
o
Bosch VMS 5.0 will use this feature in its multiple pre-alarm duration settings.
•
Some cameras have multiple sensors such as accelerometer, temperature, or humidity
sensors. Data from these sensors are added to the metadata stream and also recorded.
•
Card media that reached maximum write cycles and would cause access errors are now
mounted as read-only to ensure accessibility of stored recordings.
This state is valid until the next media exchange, then re-checked.
•
Storage configuration of two iSCSI LUNs is possible on a device for local recording.
•
Alarm recordings can be automatically protected.
IVA
•
Smart search is now also possible for faces.
•
In all IVA-enabled cameras the default analysis type is set to IVA with default task “Detect any
object” instead of MOTION+ to provide more accurate motion detection.

Miscellaneous
•
A new media data watermarking/signing method based on certificates has been implemented.
The video stream includes signatures from the device’s certificate.
By checking the signature against the certificate it received from the device, possibly even by
a certification authority (CA), a client can prove if the received video stream or playback is
really from the original source.
o
Video authentication can be selected from Off, Classic, MD5, SHA-1 or SHA-256.
o
The signature period can be configured to balance the required computational power with
other functions required from the device to perform.
o
This new watermarking method requires VSDK 5.71 or later to be functional in the Web
browser.
•
Basic support of the Chinese standard GB/T 28181 has been implemented.
This standard is based on communication using SIP protocol for connection setup and control.
It also requires wider support of Chinese characters in name fields and on-screen display.
o
Camera name fields now directly support Unicode character input.
The selection from the graphic character table is not necessary anymore but still
functional for backward compatibility.
o
A large Chinese font providing more than 30.000 characters has been added to support
the majority of Chinese Unicode characters.
•
Display stamping can now be set to transparent background.
•
The status of the local storage medium is provided in the SNMP MIB.
•
Date and time information have been added to the beginning of each line in the maintenance
log file.
•
After a network link is re-established EAPOL communication is initiated to restart 802.1x
authentication even if the switch does not initiate this.
Cloud-based Security and Services
•
Certificate chain check has been implemented.
ONVIF conformance
•
Conformance was tested using recent ONVIF test tool 12.12.
