For all you ARRI users out there here is their latest software update for the Wireless Video System (WVS).
The WVS Software Update Package (SUP) 4.3.26 is now shipping with all ARRI Wireless Video System components: integrated HD video transmitters inside ALEXA LF and ALEXA SXT W cameras, Wireless Video Transmitter WVT-1 and Wireless Video Receiver WVR-1.
Overview of Changes with SUP 4.3.26
Improvement of reliability and signal robustness WVS SUP 4.3.26 improves the reliability and signal robustness of the integrated wireless video transmitters within ALEXA LF and ALEXA SXT W cameras. Due to a faulty calibration, these transmitters were not able to supply full transmission power to the antennas with software before WVS SUP 4.3.26. The stand-alone Wireless Video Transmitter WVT-1 and the Wireless Video Receiver WVR-1 are not affected by this.
Correct VPID within SDI Signal The SDI OUT 1/2 of the Wireless Video Receiver WVR-1 now include the correct VPID (Video Payload Identifier). This allows using the output of WVR-1 with a variety of monitors and converters with automatic signal detection. To benefit from this bug fix, the WVR-1 needs WVS SUP 4.3.26 installed.
Important Information Cameras and electronic devices should always run the latest SUP so you can benefit from the latest improvements, features and bug fixes. All Wireless Video System devices are shipping with WVS SUP 4.3.26 installed from August 27th. Since the pairing between devices will be deleted when a new WVS SUP is installed, it is necessary to pair transmitter and receivers again after installation. WVS SUP 4.3.26 is backwards compatible with “Update-Starlite-ARRI-WVS-Build-05-0308” of Transvideo Starlite ARRI-WVS devices. The software for Transvideo Starlite ARRI-WVS devices is available at here
The WVS SUP 4.3.23 remains compatible with the new WVS SUP 4.3.26. However,since WVS SUP 4.3.26 also contains a bug fix, we recommend updating all units to WVS SUP 4.3.26. WVS SUP 4.3.26 is not compatible with versions of the WVS software older than 4.3.23.
Please be aware that devices with older software versions than WVS SUP 4.3.23 will not pair, hence please ensure that all devices are running compatible software.
The WVS Software Update Package (SUP) 4.3.26 is now available for:
- ARRI WVS transmitters in ALEXA LF and ALEXA SXT W cameras
- ARRI Wireless Video Transmitter WVT-1
- ARRI Wireless Video Receiver WVR-1
