14-Nov-2018 Dante Firmware Updates Model 391

New Model 391 Firmware Released

Version 1.2 of the Main Firmware for the Model 391 Dante Alerting Unit has been released. It adds some nice enhancements to what’s already a very interesting and useful product.

A major new feature allows the unit to simultaneously monitor Dante receive channels 1 and 2 for the presence of a call signal. When a call signal is detected (typically 20 kHz in the audio channel) the visual indicator will respond with a different color depending on which channel the call signal was received.

Dante Ultimo Subscription Issue Corrected!

 

 

In a previous Tech Note (https://studio-tech.com/tech-notes/problem-with-dante-subscriptions-re-establishing/) an issue was described that impacted certain of our Dante products. In some cases Dante subscriptions (“routes”) would not re-establish upon a power cycle or when disconnecting and reconnecting to the Ethernet network. Over the past several months some of our customers have experienced this issue and we simply couldn’t offer a good solution. It was stressful for everyone involved and sometimes lead to less-than-optimal operation.

Problem with Dante Subscriptions Re-establishing

Over the past few months the Studio Technologies support team has received reports from users in the field who’ve had issues with Dante subscriptions not correctly re-establishing upon device power up. This always involved Studio Technologies products that used the Audinate Ultimo X2 or Ultimo X4 integrated circuits to support their Dante interface. Specific products that were involved in the field included the Models 214, 215, and 216 Announcer’s Consoles, Models 370, 370A, 374, 374A Intercom Beltpacks,

06-Sep-2018 Dante Firmware Updates Model 48D

New Firmware for Model 44D Interface – Now Generates 18 kHz and 20 kHz tones.

In August 2018 version 2.2. of the Model 44D Interface’s application firmware was released. This new firmware revises the tone generation capability, keeping the 18 kHz sine-wave but replacing the 1 kHz with 20 kHz. This change was made so that the Model 44D can better assist a matrix intercom and related audio devices in generating intercom user “call” signals. The change may appear to be fairly subtle, but it continues to expand the ability of Studio Technologies’

New Video about the Model 5422 Dante Intercom Audio Engine

Our friend Matt Mayer created a nice introduction and training video for our Model 5422 Dante Intercom Audio Engine. You can find it on our website at https://studio-tech.com/model-5422-dante-intercom-audio-engine-introduction-tutorial-video/.

It’s short and moves fast but we hope it provides some nice background, application, and how-to-use information. You might need to watch it a couple of times to allow all the content to sink in.

If you have a Model 5422 ensure that you’ve loaded the latest firmware.

New Remote Control Feature for Models 214/215/216

In late April 2018 new application firmware for the Model 214, Model 215, and Model 216 Announcer’s Console was released. Each is version 2.2 and they are available for download on the Studio Technologies website. This version adds the ability to use STcontroller (1.05.00 and later) to remotely observe and, if desired, revise the headphone output gain range. This can be very useful, especially in situations where headphone performance requirements change on an event-to-event basis.
