Software update June 2023

Software update Nov 2023 (see update procedure below)

 
 
Upgrade procedure:
 
  • Select Advanced Control Menu and Click Save to SD
  • Note any connections to Fx Outputs.  These crosspoints may be lost and are not included in the SD save for your version
  • Select Local System Information – Module Operating Logs
  • Check the System Notices for the All system data successfully archived to SD card message before proceeding
  • Select Local System Information – Router Firmware Control
  • Click Choose File and Select the correct file.  Make sure to select the correct file for the device to be upgraded.
  • Click Upload Image
  • A new window will open and after a few moments a message will appear that should indicate the firmware image was uploaded and stored in flash.
  • Click Close This Window
  • When ready, click Reboot and the device will restart.
  • After a minute, select Local System Information – Module Operating Logs.
  • Check the status of the memory check.
  • If you see MAIN_SystemInit() – All MRAM data objects tested OK, you should be good to go.
  • If you see MAIN_SystemInit() – All MRAM reset to default values, you will need to restore configuration from the SD card.
  • There is as good chance that a reset will happen based on the current firmware version
  • Go to Advanced Control and Select Restore from SD and confirm.
  • Select Local System Information – Module Operating Logs.
  • You can monitor the status of the restore.
  • Add back any Fx output connections.
  • Test the upgraded unit

Broadcast Studio Application

Eliminate Costly Sound Cards

This small module can save you up to $6,000 in a typical studio setting. No more expensive sound cards on your automation, editor and various studio PC’s. With the Dante Virtual Sound Card, for the price of lunch, you can have 64 channels in/out in ASIO mode (16 in WDM). The Nucleus IP Engine will also connect to any AES67 device and SMPTE 2110 compliant equipment. True to the SAS philospohy of “Keep Calm and Have a Backup” the Nucleus IP Engine provides dual AoIP ports with a built in switch for redundancy against network switch lockup and failures.
