NEW YORK—Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. has announced the availability of CL V1.61 firmware upgrade. As of Summer 2013, with Yamaha CL V1.61, it is now possible to perform discovery and patching operations for Shure ULX-D™ digital wireless system receivers such as the ULXD4D and ULXD4Q directly from Yamaha CL Series Digital Consoles via the Dante™ network. Shure and Yamaha have worked together to provide users with more advanced, integrated control capabilities. With Yamaha CL Series firmware version 1.61 and ULX-D firmware version 1.3 now available, it is possible to control discovery and patching for Shure ULXD4D and ULXD4Q receivers directly from CL console touch panel displays without the need for the Dante Controller PC software that had been initially required.
Other new features included in CL V1.61 are Scene Preview functionality, and the Help function is further supported by an on-screen reference guide, which once loaded, resides in the console permanently. The recently launched Ri8-D, Ro8-D input/output boxes and NXAmp with NXDT104 have been added as Dante devices that can be detected/patched into the CL Series. A CUE LEVEL knob has been added to the CUE section, allowing adjustment of the CUE level and can be assigned to a custom fader or user defined knob.
The Yamaha CL V1.61 firmware upgrade is available via download at www.yamahaca.com.
