IP AutoDome Firmware Updates via a TCP/IP Network

 

The AutoDome 700 and AutoDome 800 incorporate a network video server in the IP module.

 

The primary function of the server is to encode video and control data for transmission over a

 

TCP/IP network. The IP AutoDome also allows an operator to update the AutoDome firmware

 

via the TCP/IP network.

 

Refer to the AutoDome 700 or AutoDome 800 Installation and User Manuals for specific

 

instructions on configuring an IP AutoDome.

 

To update firmware on an AutoDome 100 or an AutoDome 600 see Section 2 Analog Camera

 

Firmware Updates via the CTFID, page 7.

1.1

Upgrading the AutoDome 700 or AutoDome 800

 

The preferred method to update an IP AutoDome is through a direct connection between the

AutoDome and a PC. This method entails connecting the Ethernet cable from the IP AutoDome directly to the Ethernet port of a PC.

If the direct-connectmethod is not practical you can also update the IP AutoDome through a Local Area Network (LAN). You cannot, however, update the IP AutoDome through a Wide Area Network (WAN) or via the Internet.

Analog Camera Firmware Updates via the CTFID

 

This chapter details the procedure to update the firmware files for an AutoDome 100,

 

AutoDome 600, a MIC Series 550 and a MIC Series 550 UIR analog camera using the

 

Configuration Tool for Imaging Devices (CTFID). The CTFID connects a computer to an analog

 

camera using a BNC to USB (Bilinx) connection or via a serial (RS232/RS485) connection.

 

Bilinx is a communication protocol that allows you to update the firmware for an analog

 

camera over the video cable (coaxial or passive UTP). For a Bilinx connection, the CTFID is

 

connected to an analog camera using a BNC to USB converter (Bosch part VP-USB).For a

 

serial connection, the analog camera is connected to a computer through the DB9 Com port.

 

The version of the CTFID software must be version 3.13 or higher to interface with an analog

 

camera. (Visit www.boschsecurity.com for the latest version of the CTFID software). For

 

further references and details, refer to the CTFID online help, to the CTFID User’s Manual and

 

to the AutoDome 600 Installation Manual.

 

The latest service pack is available on the Bosch Security Systems Web site.

 

 

 

 

 

NOTICE! Use this upgrade method with an AutoDome 100, an AutoDome 600, a MIC Series

 

550, and a MIC Series 550 IR camera only. If you are updating the AuotDome 700 Series, refer

 

to Section 1 IP AutoDome Firmware Updates via a TCP/IP Network, on page 1.

 

 

 

 

2.1

 

Selecting the Service Pack

 

The analog service packs are cumulative. Before you begin a firmware update, check the

 

version of the System Controller Main (SC) firmware currently installed in the camera. The SC

 

Main firmware version determines the service pack with which you must start. To determine

 

the SC Main firmware version, issue the ON-66-ENTER command on the keyboard or from the

 

CTFID.

 

 

 

The camera displays the current firmware levels for the camera files. The SC Main firmware

 

level is indicated as item 1 in the illustration below.

Troubleshooting

 

 

 

 

This section provides information for issues that may arise during the upgrade process of an

 

AutoDome 100, 600, 700 or 800.

 

 

 

3.1

AutoDome 600 Firmware Version Identification

 

Each service pack contains a version of the files in the illustration below. The version number

 

of the Service Pack is sequential, but the versions of the firmware modules included in the

 

service pack varies. Although all files are included in a service pack, only a few of these files

 

are upgraded with each service pack release.

 

 

To display the current versions of the AutoDome 600 firmware files:

 

Issue theON-66-ENTERcommand twice, in quick succession.

 

The AutoDome displays the current firmware levels for the AutoDome files. Compare

 

these version numbers to the latest versions identified in the Release Notes, included

 

with the Service Pack to determine if the AutoDome requires an upgrade.

AutoDome 700 / AutoDome 800

 

This section offers suggestions if a firmware upgrade fails in an AutoDome 700 or an

 

AutoDome 800.

3.2.1

Web Browser Issues

 

The browser displayed video correctly before the upgrade, but is no longer streams after com-

 

pleting the upgrade process. Do a manual refresh of the LivePage. If this does not work, check

 

to ensure the following:

 

– Microsoft® Internet Explorer® version

 

 

You must use Internet Explorer version 7.0 or higher.

 

– Bosch MPEG ActiveX version

 

 

Compare the Bosch MPEG ActiveX version number, displayed in the Internet Explorer

 

 

information bar, to the latest version available on the Bosch Security Systems Web site

 

 

(www.boschsecurity.us).

 

Java version

 

 

Microsoft Java is not longer supported. Install the latest Sun Java VM available on the V

 

 

the Bosch Security Systems Web site (www.boschsecurity.us).

 

DirectX version

 

 

The version of DirectX must be 9.0c or higher. Install the latest version available on the

 

 

Bosch Security Systems Web site (www.boschsecurity.us).

3.2.2

IP Firmware Upgrade Fails

 

If an error message appears stating that the IP firmware upgrade has failed, navigate to the

 

following special URL:

http://IP_AutoDome_IP_Address/upload.htm

Where IP_AutoDome_IP_Address is the IP address for your IP AutoDome.

The browser then displays the following window:

 

Figure 3.2 IP Firmware Upgrade URL

 

Click Browse and navigate to the IP directory. Select the IP firmware file and click OK. Then

 

click Upload to attempt the IP firmware upload again. If the upgrade fails again, contact Bosch

 

technical support for assistance.

3.3

Upgrading Firmware with the CTFID

 

These suggestions are applicable if upgrading using the CTFID software with either a Bilinx or

 

a serial hardware connection.

3.3.1

CTFID does not Connect

 

Ensure that the latest version of CTFID has been installed from a CD or downloaded from the

 

Bosch web site (www.boschsecurity.us).

3.3.2

BILINX

 

– Ensure that only one BILINX device is connected to the PC. For example, only one VP-USB

 

may be connected to a PC at one time. In addition, disconnect the video output from the

 

AutoDome from any other BILINX controller during a firmware upgrade.

 

– Confirm that all connections are correct and that the maximum recommended distance

 

has not been exceeded.

 

– Confirm that there is a direct coax connection to the dome. BILINX cannot be transmitted

 

through fiber without special fiber modules. BILINX also cannot be passed through

 

analog distribution amplifiers, with the exception to the Bosch LTC 5231/90 and

 

LTC 5234/90.

 

– Confirm that the coax signal is correctly terminated with only one 75 ohm load.

3.3.3

Serial (RS232 or RS485)

 

– Ensure that the CPU switch is set to the correct format. The factory default setting is

 

RS485. Refer to the AutoDome Series Installation Manual for more information.

 

– Confirm that the correct COM port was selected and that the cable is connected firmly to

 

the DB9 connector.

 

– Ensure that all connections are correct and that the maximum recommended distance

 

has not been exceeded.

 

– Ensure that the RS232 GROUND connection has been used.

 

– If using RS485, ensure that the termination resistor has been installed.

 

– Ensure the AutoDome AutoBaud is turned on.

3.3.4 Firmware Upgrade via CTFID Fails

Try to repeat the upgrade a second time. If the upgrade continues to fail, contact Bosch technical support.

3.4 Auto Tracker Does not Activate with ON 78 ENTER

If the Auto Tracker does not activate when you enter the ON 78 ENTER command, check the version of the VCA firmware. To determine the firmware versions installed on an AutoDome, issue the AUX ON 66 command twice.

If the version of the VCA firmware is 0.00.00.00, then the VCA firmware was not installed correctly.

To correct this issue, use the following steps:

1.Obtain the latest Service Pack from www.boschsecurity.us.

2.Connect to the AutoDome using the CTFID (RS232, RS485, or Bilinx connection).

3.Re-installthe VCA_boot.g4i and the VCA_App.g4i files from the service pack.

Refer to Section 2 Analog Camera Firmware Updates via the CTFID, page 7, OR Section 1 IP AutoDome Firmware Updates via a TCP/IP Network, page 1 for detailed steps to install the firmware updates).

4.Once the VCA_boot.g4i and the VCA_App.g4i files are successfully installed, the AutoDome will restart and the Auto Tracker will operate correctly.
