Shipping Version Release Notes
Your new Solo PRO will arrive with version 9.7.0.C2696.G48092d6a0.
This initial version has a few limitations that the now available 9.7.2. If you receive your new Solo PRO on a version less than 9.7.2 please contact support for an upgrade!
See the article on the LiveU Net for a note about plugging/unplugging them when using the Y-Cables.
Solo PRO can use any existing Solo LRT Zone (such as US_East_NorthVirginia, etc.) to send RTMP, including up to 4K (see limitation above for a note on 4K support however).
However, for SRT support (and therefore HEVC support), new zones will be deployed. With the launch of 7.2 firmware for Solo (the previous generation, before Solo PRO), Solo can also use the listed zones below for SRT support.
Over an initial launch timeline, these zones will eventually replace all worldwide zones, but for now both will run in parallel using different versions of the cloud software. Look for sometime in 2023 for the new zones to become the only supported zones.
The new zones will have simplified naming, look for these new zones in the LRT selection dropdown:
|Ireland_Dublin||Canceled and will be replaced with UK_Newport|
