Evolutions

The Web RCS was redesigned to provide more efficiency and to enhance the user experience:
o It uses a Flat Design interface, much legible and much simple for the PC graphic board to draw. As a
consequence, the interface is up to 30% more reactive than before and the PC memory usage was
dramatically improved. The switching between EDIT and LIVE tabs is now instantaneous.

The new design is also more compact and more adapted for smaller screen resolutions.
Although they still have their own specificities, the EDIT and LIVE modes now share many features to
provide more efficiency. For example, the Memories and Layers Managements have been unified. The
EDIT mode displays one screen at a time, whereas the LIVE mode displays all the screens
simultaneously.
FIRMWARE RELEASE NOTE
o
New Cue Sequencer: this new version integrates a brand new cue sequencer with enhanced functionalities.
It comes with a built-in editor to easily create and edit cue sequences as well as a new player to control the
playback of a sequence. The number of cues in a sequence was increased to 128. Several types of cues are
available (mostly based on Web RCS shortcuts). For a better readability and understanding, cues can be
grouped into cue stacks (up to ten).
o
In the EDIT and LIVE tabs, the screen label is displayed in the selection button: the screen label, entered in
the SETUP>PRECONFIG>SCREEN menu, is available in the EDIT and LIVE tabs.
o
The Web RCS environment is managed with the new Visual Settings feature:

It is now possible to save the visual setting: ”Save” saves the Visual Settings, “Cancel” reloads the
latest saved configuration and “Reset” sets the settings to the default values.

The Web RCS can be finger-operated with touchscreen devices. Some user interface elements were
adapted to best suit the touchscreen interface.

The new T-bars panel is pinnable: it remains opened as long as the operator needs performs.
o
The Faders panel is now accessible in the LIVE tab.


The LiveCore unit equipped with the 4K option (except NeXtage 16 – ref.NXT1604) can deliver 4K content at 60Hz
on a single HDMI cable using the 4:2:0 chromaticity sub-sampling: for further information about 4K, please read the
white paper dedicated to 4K, available on our website.

A 4K 30Hz input format can now be used with an internal rate above 30Hz: this limitation is over. It is now possible to
use a 4K30p signal with a 60Hz internal rate. For further information about 4K, please read the white paper dedicated
to 4K, available on our website.

The 3G-SDI inputs now supports 3G-SDI level B sources: mainly used in broadcast applications, the 3G-SDI level B
TM
standard is now supported by LiveCore SDI inputs.

New control to remove the layer frames on Monitoring/Preview Output (Clean Preview): in the SETUP>MONITORING
menu, it is possible to partially or totally remove the layer frame on the Monitoring/Preview Output: the operator can
display a Clean Preview.

FIRMWARE RELEASE NOTE

Reset Image Settings feature is now accessible through a button in the input settings panel: it is possible to reset the
Image Settings of an input directly from its setting panel.

Better Native Background management for screen using 4K outputs: the position of the frame/input can be adjusted.
Bug fixes

Bursts of T-bar modifications using TPP protocol may reboot the device: sending too many T-Bars values with the
TM
Third Party protocol may reboot the LiveCore unit.

When linking two units, Dual Frames are not displayed correctly on the monitoring output of the slave device: this
problem was caused by a bad communication between the master unit and the slave unit.

When linking two units, the layer movements on the outputs of the slave device are not synchronized with those on
the outputs of the master unit: this problem was caused by a bad communication between the master unit and the
slave unit.

When linking two units, in the Setting panel of the outputs #6 and #8, the Output Digital Mode control (HDMI/DVI)
has no effect on the Slave output: this problem was caused by a bad communication between the master unit and the
slave unit.

Sometimes, when the device rate is frame-locked to an input, the outputs may not deliver any signal: when both the
reference input format and the output format were HDTV, the frame-lock process didn’t work and the output didn’t
deliver any signal.

Frame-locking the device internal rate to a 4K 30Hz input doesn’t work: The reference 4K 30Hz input signal was
described as invalid.

The input EDID preferred format list is not properly filled depending of the input plug type (Dual, 4K compliant …):
some input formats were proposed as EDID preferred format for a plug in spite of the fact this plug couldn’t support
them.

FIRMWARE RELEASE NOTE

Input RGsB computer signals are not recognized and centered properly: due to bad analysis of the composite sync,
the RGsB (SOG) signals were not detected properly and the active area was not centered properly because of a
blanking shift.

The front panel HMI may send commands on the Program instead of Preview: A bad analysis of the internal T-bar
position applies changes to the Program instead of the Preview.

The SETUP>BLENDING page is not updated according to output position changes in the screen: when changing the
position of an output in the screen (SETUP>PRECONFIG>SCREENS), the blending page should be updated accordingly.

An “Invalid output format” warning is raised on the Web RCS although this output is disabled: a disabled output
shouldn’t generate a warning message.

A nasty seam column appears when cropping a dual frame: when cropping a dual frame in the SETUP> LOGO>
FRAMEx>CROPPING menu, a scratched content appeared.

On the EDIT/LIVE>MONITORING page, the number of displayed resources is not refreshed properly when the widget
source is modified: depending of the source assigned to the widget, the number of used resources should be updated.

Dual inputs are not handled properly when they are unplugged: sometimes it is not possible to recover the input.

The content displayed by analog video outputs is cropped: in spite of the fact the output format was generated
properly, the content was cropped (one line missing at the bottom, and a few pixel column on the right side). The
content was displayed properly on the digital output.

On the Web RCS, the layer content is not refreshed properly when the logo/frame resource is empty: the output
layer was updated properly, but the Web RCS preview snapshot of the former source was still present. Corrected.

On the Web RCS, when switching selection from Program to Preview, the Layer status related controls are not
refreshed: some properties in the right side panel are not updated properly.

It should not be possible to activate the Dual button when uploading an image as a logo: the dual property should
only be available for frames.

In the SETUP>PRECONFIG>SCREENS menu, dropping an output over itself on the Unused Outputs section causes the
output to disappear: this was an HMI bug (workarounds were: coming back and forth to the menu or simply restarting
the Web RCS).

In the screen configuration, “Load template” doesn’t work if the outputs are in the Unused Outputs area: loading a
template was not working as the outputs in the Unused Output section were not assigned to the screens.
Restrictions

4K outputs cannot be rotated.

2048x1152 output format cannot be rotated.

No 4K frame available to be used with 4K 30Hz 4:4:4 output: Frames can only be used for 4K 60Hz 4:2:0 output: it
requires the use of four 2K Frames.

 Technical Notes:
Evolutions

4K 30Hz input and output formats are supported by 4K devices: when a LiveCore unit is equipped with its
dedicated 4K option, it can support 4K 30Hz 4:4:4 source of the HDMI plugs of input #2,#6 and #10. Moreover, it
can output 4K 30Hz 4:4:4 format on the DVI connectors of output #2 and #4. Please note that:
o These output DVI connectors are HDMI compliant
o When using either a 4K 30Hz input or output, the internal rate (and therefore the output rate) must be
30Hz. This limitation will be removed in the forthcoming updater version 2.00.xx.
Bug fixes

Screens without protected content (HDCP) are still displayed with grey on a Confidence screen: when displaying
a confidence screen on a non-HDCP display, if a program mixed HDCP and non-HDCP contents, the program was
totally greyed. This is now corrected: only layers with HDCP content are greyed.

No dual link output format available on slave monitoring output: when linking to LiveCore units together, it was
not possible to select a dual-link format on the monitoring output of the slave device.

Input Aspect ratio is not managed in a confidence screen: the input aspect ratio was not applied when a source
was displayed in a confidence monitor.

1920x1080p Input DisplayPort signal is sometimes seen as a 3840x1080p signal: 1080p formats were sometimes
not detected properly by the DisplayPort inputs. This may cause a wrong detection status “Unknown format
3840x1080p” and the content may not be displayed.
