The upgrade takes place in two steps.
• The first step is to update the entire camera using either Configuration Manager (CM) or the Web Browser. This uses the standard upgrade process.
• The second step requires the Web Browser to start the internal camera block FW upgrade. Once the camera block FW upgrade has started, the remainder of the upgrade takes place inside the camera.
FW upgrade to FW 7.60.0116 or higher – Using either CM or Web Browser
– These MIC cameras should never have any FW version less than 6.60.
• In order to upload version 6.51 or higher to a device running a firmware version below 6.50, you need to upgrade first to version 6.50, since older firmware versions do not support firmware file
• A video loss after the upgrade is possible. If this occurs, reset the camera again.
• It is recommended to Default the camera after the 7.60 FW upgrade is completed.
Camera block upgrade to FW 1.06 - This step must be initiated using the Web Browser.
– Neither the Live page nor the Live preview window will refresh during the camera block FW upgrade, since no video is available for during this time. Video recording is also not possible during this process.
– Make sure the camera has power continuously. (Do not remove power to the camera during the upgrade)
1. Browse to the CONFIGURATION>SERVICE>LOGGING>EVENT LOGGING; and then select NOTICE from the CURRENT LOG LEVEL drop down box. This is required to be able to see the progress of the FW upload.

3. The “Camera module upload” window appears and the current version of the camera block FW version is checked.
– If the FW upgrade isn’t needed or isn’t applicable, then the message “Camera upload possible: 0” is displayed and the Start Upload button is disabled.
– If an upgrade is required, the message “Camera upload possible: 1” will be displayed and Start Upload button will be available.
4. Click Start upload. The camera begins the firmware upload cycle which will take approximately 15 minutes.
5. The progress of the FW upload is tracked and updated in the web browser. This screen shot is the example of the beginning of the process.
6. After the upload completes successfully, the message will go back to “Camera upload possible: 0”and the Start Upload button will be disabled again. The camera will reboot automatically.
7. After the reboot cycle completes, change the EVENT LOGGING LEVEL back to WARNING.
8. If the original FW was less than 7.10 then a Factory Default is recommended. If a factory default is going to create problems with the VMS, then use the camera as is. If any video quality or focus issues occur, then do a factory default.
