When the update is complete, the encoder will reboot automatically; please do not reboot the unit yourself.
The web site will indicate that the update is complete once the encoder has rebooted. You may need to perform a "hard refresh" in your browser in order to see the latest version of the HD1492 Web Portal.
Your system software build will be either "1.3.1" or "x1.3.1", depending on what build you had before the upgrade.
Lexi Controller 2.3.0
Supports putting Lexi into a new standby/pause mode, where Lexi remains running but does not send captions to the encoder. This allows for:
faster transitions between Lexi and other sources of captioning,
scheduling Lexi jobs from EEG Cloud, whilie not running Lexi upon other caption sources
running fewer Lexi jobs, making it easier to review lists of jobs for debugging purposes.
Note: Billing of Lexi hours will still occur while Lexi is paused / in standby.
SCTE-104 triggers can now be used to block Lexi captions, such as when commercials are active
Improved status messages on encoder Lexi web page
Adds new "Instances" mode, allowing Lexi settings to managed via EEG Cloud rather than via the encoder
Maximum row width is now 36 characters (only recommended for use in OP-42/OP-47 output mode, rather than 608/708 mode)
Auxiliary SDI output now supports output of an open-captioned version of the main video output
Improved Teletext decoding in OP-42/OP-47 output mode, including support for Newfor-based workflows
