5.1 What is a FIRMWARE

In electronic systems and computing, firmware is a term often used to denote the fixed programs that internally control electronic devices. Typical end-user products such as mobile phones, digital cameras, synthesizers, etc., contain firmware to enable the device's basic operation as well as implementing higher-level functions.

The GIROCAM firmware is developped by GIROPTIC and updates are frequently available. Those updates will either correct eventual bugs or improve the GIROCAM capabilities (sound, data transfer rate,…)

The GIROCAM ships with the latest FIRMWARE version available so upgrading is usually not needed when you use your device for the first time.
