Ver 33.69

New Features

  1. Main-line recording onto an SDXC/SDHC memory card available on the market, which is supposed to be for use in an urgent situation, has so far been restricted to the codecs at 50Mbps or less. But, to meet the users’ demand, this restriction is removed.
    However, that is not to guarantee the recording and playback operations with SDXC/SDHC memory cards.
  2. The following dongle are supported.
    WLAN :D-Link DWA-171(Australia) , LTE :Verizon USB730L (US)

Improvement

  1. The related menus are not displayed so that microP2 B cards are not CPS-formatted by mistake.
  2. The cameras are designed to start installing the firmware update immediately after it is downloaded via P2 Cast, and an improvement is made to this current design. Menu item “Download Only” is added. This menu item can temporarily end the update process once the download is complete when the update command is received from P2 Cast.
  3. In UDP transmission, the communication process of streaming format is improved.
  4. P2 SS becomes unable to be connected, and this problem is fixed..
  5. Improvement in stability at boot-up
  6. System error may occur on rare occasions under the specific conditions, and this problem is fixed.

Ver 33.56

Improvement

  • The firmware version 33.54 released on April 25 had an error.
  • If a clip is copied using the camera, E-36 system error occurs. It was corrected.

Ver 33.54

New Features

  1. P2 Cast additional features support
    • Capability to send Proxy to a server with a specified address
    • The camera receives the location information transmitted via P2 Cast from a mobile phone.
  2. Information about a bonding device such as the state of communication, battery remaining capacity, etc. can be displayed on the camera.
    This function is extended so that the information can be obtained via Live-U central server. Network Profile data is used for this operation, so the P2 Network Setting Software is changed so that the data can be edited.
  3. Additional LTE dongle support
    PIXELA PIX-MT100 (Japan only)
  4. Additional WLAN dongle support
    AJ-WM50MC (China only) PLANEX GW-900D (Japan only)

Improvement

  1. The indicator for remaining card capacity is corrected because it has a problem when the format is AVC-G50/24PN, AVC-G25/24PN or AVC-G12/24PN.

    Symptom

    • For example:Indication of capacity in AVC-G50/24PN
      False: 178 min / True: 145 min
    • Incorrectly indicated remaining capacity on the screen or at PROPERTY
    • A card with little capacity left, normally an un-recordable card, is mistaken as recordable.
  2. The camera cannot be connected with the wireless router by DHCP. This problem is fixed.
