We posted a new release today. It has some nice tweaks:
Beta 042218- Doubled range for HDR intensity mapping ratio setting. Modified Output HDR menu so as to not obscure view while setting Display Max LIght. Added extra check of output device EDID for 600mhz capability after seeing a couple of devices reporting 300Mhz support in one part of their EDID and 600Mhz in another section---these devices are now detected as 600Mhz capable. Added Kaleidescape setup menu under Other: I/O Setup: Kaleidescape for a Strato/Co-Star switching setup in order to automatically switch to the active device (also requires buying the "Co-Star for Lumagen" feature. Contact Kaleidescape for details). To use the Pro's Strato/Co-Star switching solution the Strato needs to be on an 18Ghz input and the Co-Star must on an input card different from the Strato. Added new input aspect ratios of 2.0 and 2.2, selectable on Lumagen remote with Alt then 4:3 and Alt then 16:9, respectively. These two new input aspects can also be detected with auto aspect feature when enabled. Also added separate sizing memory for the 2.40 input aspect (alt- 2.35) which had been sharing sizing parameters with 2.35. Added an option to reduce maximum bandwidth under Output: Styles: StyleX: HDMI Format: Reduce Max. When enabled the blanking time is reduced by ~5% so the original picture is not being resized and if the display accepts non-standard timings this can be a solution in some cases where the video connection is unreliable or slow to get picture.
We have had requests for a while to add 2.0 and 2.2 input aspects, but sounds like there is more material on Netflix using these aspects. So we added these in this release.
The ability to lower the clock rate for 18 GHz output by about 5% has helped several projector setups having issues at 18 GHz become solid due to the slightly reduced clock rate.
We have also added support for the Kaleidescape "Co-Star for Lumagen" feature. This allows a Strato to control another Kaleidescape player so they share a common control and OSD. Contact Kaleidescape for more information.
We also have added support for some devices with errors in their EDID for 18 GHz so the Pro treats them as 18 GHz (=600 MHz, even though in one EDID field they report their maximum clock rate as 300 MHz).
Some of you will be happy to hear that Patrick is now working on a HDR IM "desaturation" control.
