We are pleased to announce the release of a new Firmware (version 5).
This update represents the biggest one done to date, with over 70 listed items including new and improved features, reworked systems, and debugging, to name a few. We have focused on the radio communication and the Remotes’ functionalities to deliver more stability at all times.
This update will also prepare your Phase for the future Phase x Serato integration.
Get the new firmware version by downloading our new configuration software, Phase Manager, launch it and update your Phase! We have released Phase Manager parallel to this firmware update to take the Phase experience even further. If you have questions on how to update, check this video tutorial contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here’s what’s new:
1. An extensive rework of the radio communication protocol:
Providing a reliable and robust radio communication protocol is one of the top priorities for the Phase team as it represents one of our biggest challenges in product development. To always meet the expected quality and stability of our users, we constantly need to add improvements to our radio communication protocol in order for it to evolve. As our range for improvement on this feature is almost unlimited, for this firmware we decided to totally rework the radio communication between the Remotes and Receiver to ensure a stronger signal, and to maintain a seamless experience while using Phase regardless of the environment.
2. A new Remote shutdown feature:
After several users’ inquiries regarding the Remotes’ shutdown, now the Remotes will turn off immediately when they are placed in the Receiver decks and this gets disconnected. Instead of the previous 1 minute timer, you can now simply place your Remotes in the Receiver and unplug it for an immediate Remote shutdown.
3. More stable pairing and Remote detection systems:
These improvements guarantee fast data processing between the Receiver and the Remotes, help to solve the occasional issue of unrecognized Remotes and provide a more accurate connection status of the Remotes in real-time.
4. A more reliable calibration process:
We have applied a new process to fix issues with Remotes undergoing calibration randomly both within the Receiver or while being used. This will help us guarantee a more reliable performance.
5. Resolution of minor issues and bugs:
This firmware update also allowed us to fix minor bugs and issues occasionally experienced by users such as unresponsive Remotes and problems with Phase detection when connected via USB, which have been taken care of.
|Preparing the field for the Phase x Serato integration|
This firmware update represents an important first step in technical terms to prepare Phase for the future Phase x Serato collaboration by adding custom coding that will facilitate the integration once it is released later this year.
(Stay tuned on the Phase x Serato integration)
