Vicon Firmware Update Utility_1.3.0

Vicon Firmware Update Utility

Abstract

File Name: ViconFirmwareUpdateUtility_110976h.zip

The firmware update utility provides a robust guided workflow that allows you to update your camera firmware more reliably.

When the utility is installed and started, unblock it from the Windows firewall in order for it to communicate with the cameras and reprogram them.

Note: Starting other Vicon software during the operation of the reprogramming tool may interrupt the updating process.

Requirements

Vicon system

Vicon Firmware Update Utility_1.2.1

Firmware 707 (via Reprogramming Tool)

Abstract

File Name: ViconFirmwareUpdateUtility_707.zip

The firmware update utility provides a robust guided workflow that allows you to update your camera firmware.

Version 1.2.1 of the tool has now been updated to incorporate the latest FW package(707).

Whilst this package contains changes only for Vantage cameras, it will be beneficial to install this package on all hardware to ensure compatibility and ease of upgrade with future releases.

When the utility is installed and started, unblock it from the Windows firewall in order for it to communicate with the cameras and reprogram them.

Note: Starting other Vicon software during the operation of the reprogramming tool may interrupt the updating process.

Issues Addressed:

  • Mixed system stability has been improved at specific rates (150Hz)
  • General camera stability above 200Hz has been improved
  • Cameras temperature readings from the onboard sensors are more reliable
  • Low jitter mode in supported versions of Vicon Tracker is now enabled on camera startup
  • Corrected an issue with data deliver when marker passes in or out of the top edge of the camera image
  • Cameras stability has been improved for Vantage V5 when running at less common freq (540Hz)
  • System sync is more robust at 200Hz when using multiple network switches
  • Shifting from 100fps to 250fps no longer causes the cameras to flicker grey
  • Vantage V8 are more stable after framerate changes to 500Hz
  • Cameras now more reliably release sync mastership when a Lock+ re-joins the system after a reboot

 

Requirements

Vantage, Vero or Vue camera based systems

Firmware_705

Firmware 705 (via Reprogramming Tool)

Abstract

File Name: ViconFirmwareUpdateUtility_705.zip

The firmware update utility provides a robust guided workflow that allows you to update your camera firmware more reliably.

When the utility is installed and started, unblock it from the Windows firewall in order for it to communicate with the cameras and reprogram them.

Firmware 705 fixes an issue with Vero & Vue cameras disconnecting from the system after prolonged use.

Note: Starting other Vicon software during the operation of the reprogramming tool may interrupt the updating process.

Requirements

Vero or Vue camera based systems

Firmware_704

Firmware 704 (via Reprogramming Tool)

Abstract

File Name: ViconFirmwareUpdateUtility_704.zip

The firmware update utility provides a robust guided workflow that allows you to update your camera firmware more reliably.

When the utility is installed and started, unblock it from the Windows firewall in order for it to communicate with the cameras and reprogram them.

Firmware 704 fixes several issues with Vero & Vue cameras as well as deploying previous fixes for Vantage cameras:

  • Changing from 120Hz 2:1 to 1:1 causes corrupt images in Vue
  • Vue video shutter period is not aligned with main system when running subsampled
  • Vue stops sending data when calibration mode deactivated when subsampling at 3:1
  • OLED display goes blank
  • The camera noise floor becomes visible when the threshold on a Vantage camera is set to around 0.1
  • Display freezes in pie chart during calibration
  • Torn image on display when bumped
  • 2000Hz not possible
  • Unable to run over 1935Hz in Tracker
  • OLED goes blank after camera sits for a while after being bumped
  • Nexus 2.5 sensor “block” on T-series cameras
  • Changing from 120Hz 2:1 to 1:1 causes corrupt images in Vue
  • Vue video shutter period is not aligned with main system when running subsampled
  • Vue stops sending data when calibration mode deactivated when subsampling at 3:1

 

Requirements

Vantage, Vero or Vue camera based systems & Lock/Lock+

Bonita & T-Series cameras will also benefit from having the firmware upgraded

Firmware_702

Firmware 702 (via Reprogramming Tool)

Abstract

File Name: CameraReprogrammingTool 1.1.0.94951h__r702.zip

The new firmware reprogramming tool provides a more robust guided workflow that allows users to update their firmware more reliably. This was deemed to be important due to the fact that the firmware 702 update contained many changes to camera infrastructure including filesystem changes. Going forwards, Vicon will update this tool for major changes in firmware in order to deploy new versions of firmware alongside the existing in-application firmware reprogramming functionality. This tool will provide a more convenient method for firmware updates and has the additional benefit of allowing firmware releases to be made more proactively.

Bug fixes:

  • Reboot Failure: Camera appears grey in system tree and responds to soft reboot
  • Shifting from 30Hz to 120Hz leaves system in unstable situation
  • Cameras not booting up on software launch reliably
  • Enabling genlock in Blade causes Vantage to crash
  • Framerate change causes cameras to stop sending data.
  • Vue not delivering data when Bonita 720C joins the system
  • Vero13 and Vue unreliable boot when system is at 50Hz and Nexus is started
  • Vue video calibration overlay incorrect
  • Stability issues at 250Hz
  • Strobe type is incorrectly reported for Vero cameras running firmware 700\701
  • Bonita Video one frame ahead of optical following restart
  • Vue colour balance improvement
  • Vue camera in 720p mode report incorrect image offset

 

Upgrading systems with Bonita Video cameras present may require changes to the shutter period, as there has been a change in strobe timing

Requirements

A Vicon system that includes:

Bonita B3 or B10

T-Series

Vantage

Vero

Firmware_502

Legacy Firmware 502 [T-series and Bonita]

Abstract

File Name: Firmware_502.zip

Firmware 502 is the latest embedded code for Vicon hardware components.

Requirements

Vicon Lock Vicon Giganet Vicon T-Series Cameras Vicon Bonita Optical Cameras Vicon Bonita Video Cameras

When running a mixed system please ensure that the Firmware is the same for all cameras. The Firmware version should correspond to the newest generation of camera in your system

This firmware bundle will also load and update on Pre T-Series cameras and control box but has not been formally tested. The firmware sub-files / components that are contained within the bundle that load onto Pre T-Series hardware have no functional updates and have not been changed since their previous fully tested versions. Use of this bundle on Pre T-Series hardware is at the discretion of the user.
