I'm just trying this out actually... finally had some quiet time to tinker with my PAL version of the 4300S.
After flashing, the firmware reports itself as:
Software Version: 2.420.0000.0.R, build : 2014-04-19
WEB Version: 188.8.131.52667
ONVIF Version: 2.4.1
So that's up from the other one which said:
Software Version 2.400.0000.0.R, build : 2013-12-31
WEB Version 184.108.40.206826
ONVIF Version 2.3
I haven't noticed a whole lot of differences in the GUI. Comparing the backup files before and after, I see that for the most part they actually *removed* some stuff that didn't really belong in a bullet camera. Things like PTZ preset stuff, and a few alarm related things.
In the video settings, there are some minor interface changes to the new 2.4 day/night settings. I think they're making it clearer that the new "sensitivity" and "delay" settings are specifically for the day/night sensitivity and delay (those 2 settings are prefixed with the text "D&N" now, and delay is a drop-down box, not a slider).
There are some other slight rearranging of things on that screen, nothing too drastic (mirror and flip moving above the 3D NR settings for example).
One big thing I see is that the new "Interest Area" tab in the video settings is missing... I don't know if it moved somewhere else or if it's just gone from the UI, but I can clearly see that the interest area I created previously is still in effect. So the feature itself still works, you just can't adjust it. Peculiar. I can see in the page source where that tab *should* be, but the tab itself doesn't show up.
Maybe they ran into some feedback about problems with it, so they're hiding it for now but the functionality is still in place apparently. So if you like that feature, you're better off giving this version a pass... but who knows what other kinds of under-the-hood fixes are present.
What else... ONVIF authentication settings moved to a sub-tab of Connections, and that's probably a better place than it's own "Access Platform" screen.
That's about all I could tell from just poking around... like I said, probably some other fixes and stuff, but the big things were the removal of the "Interest Area" settings itself, and just general re-arranging of a few screens, minor layout changes.
Hello. I have a number of the following 4300C cameras:
- Software Version 2.400.0000.0.R, build : 2013-12-31
- WEB Version 220.127.116.11826
- ONVIF Version 2.3
1. Does anybody know if they are supported by this firmware?
2. ONVIF Snapshot seems to broke very often when resolution is set to 3MP - no data is returned by http://IP:9989... Does anybody noticed the same problem? Does anybody know the solution?
3. Is it possible to downgrade to 2.4 after upgrade to 2.42?
I've found the solution myself. If you set resolution to 3MP, do not set up snapshot quality higher than "4". It seems that camera buffer is to small to generate higher quality snapshot for 3MP resolution,especially in environment with many details.
