This firmware release is a maintenance release based on FW 6.30.0140.
It is an upgrade for CPP7 based cameras only.
• DINION IP starlight 6000
• DINION IP starlight 7000
• FLEXIDOME IP starlight 6000
• FLEXIDOME IP starlight 7000
• DINION IP thermal 8000
All CPP7 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:
C TPM second HW revision, FW >= v1.3,
global type 1 licenses up to bit 96, type 2 to 3 licenses
Since this 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.
The feature set of this CPP7 platform firmware is aligned with the feature set of CPP4 and CPP6 platforms. See below the latest feature additions in relation to former firmware 6.2x and new features specific to CPP7.
For earlier feature additions please refer to CPP4 or CPP6 release notes.
• Flexible video input orientation handling, including mirror and rotate (90°, 180° and 270°) allows corridor view applications using full resolution.
• A 1.3 MP application variant is selectable on 720p variants.
• A 1.3 MP crop is available on stream 2 on 1080p variants.
• Built-in gyro sensor is supported for automatic orientation detection.
• The user management allows 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 by default. Acceptance can be re-enabled via RCP+ command, if needed.
• Video authentication is also possible on RTSP streaming. It can be enabled with CGI parameter ‘auth=1’ which requests picture info packets (payload type 97).
• Recording to iSCSI 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 encoder profile settings can be verified via http://<ipaddress>/onvif_encoder_profiles.
• Tamper detection alarms are forwarded to and included in ONVIF event services.
• 6000 series cameras support Essential Video Analytics.
• 7000 series cameras support Intelligent Video Analytics.
For details on VCA 6.30 please refer to the release notes of Essential Video Analytics or Intelligent Video Analytics.
• 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) leads to a DownloadStore page providing latest tools, apps and supportive software.
• Unicode characters are also possible on all configuration strings.
• Time server IP address can be accepted to be overwritten by DHCP.
• Display of preposition widget on Live page can be configured.
