I posted this earlier.
Auto tone mapping with brightness slider
No E-shift noise with 4K
Reduced sync time
Greatly improved lens memory (explained below)
Improved image processing
Beefed up lens supports, so less image drift and more accurate lens memory
Vertical stretch with 4K 60P sources
USB firmware updates
Lens Memory on the RS540/640:
10 memories let you save:
Installation Mode/Lens Memories on the RS1000/2000/3000/4500:
10 installation modes/memories let you save:
Anamorphic Mode (A/B/C). Very useful with compression lenses which require zoom.
Installation Style: Not many situations for this, but I can think of a possible use.
Pixel Align: So you can have one pixel alignment for the 16x9 setting and a different if needed for the 2.35, or one for no anamorphic lens, and a different for with anamorphic lens
Screen Mode: Auto switch between two different screen materials. If using two screens and they are different material, this would be very useful.
Masking: Good for those changing aspect ratio movies.
Keystone: Not sure why you need to memorize this, when you should not even be using it.
Pincushion: Maybe you have a curved 2.35:1 screen and want Pincushion on with 2.35:1 lens memory, but you want it off with 16x9 lens memory. Another one, I think should never be used.
Aspect: Maybe you want 17:9 chip usage with 2.35:1 lens memory to get a little more brightness, but only 16x9 chip usage with 16x9 to have 1 for 1 mapping.
One of the memories can be selected to activate the 12V trigger: With a Motorized Sled for an Anamorphic Compression lens you could set a memory to zoom to screen width, engage Anamorphic mode, do the pixel adjust for that size, and then activate the 12V trigger to move the lens into place.
Easy to copy one mode to another position so you have a starting point for the next memory. Each memory name can be edited.
The same 10 discrete codes for the previous lens memory system are also used to control the 10 installation modes.
