We’ve posted new versions BrightAuthor and a new Beta version of firmware to the Downloads page.
This BrightAuthor version allows you to create, schedule, and publish presentations for all current BrightSign Models: HDx20 (including the AU320), XD, and 4K. Previous versions of 4.0.0.x only supported 4K models. Note that legacy HDx10 models are not supported in any versions after BrightAuthor 3.8.
Important: To use this version of BrightAuthor with HDx20 and XD players, you must update the firmware of these models to the new Beta firmware (5.1.12).
This is the new production version of BrightAuthor. It includes support for native portrait-mode HD video (1080x1920). It also fixes a bug with Media RSS Feeds and Live Text states.

We’ve posted a new Beta version of BrightAuthor to the Software Downloads page. Note that this version, 184.108.40.206, supports publishing to 4K models only (not XD or HD). We are currently developing a 4.0 version of BrightAuthor that will support 4K as well as XD and HD.
This version fixes a bug with Media RSS Feed and Live Text states: Previously, adding a Media RSS Feed containing a Dynamic Playlist to one zone would break Live Text states containing Live Data feeds in other zones.

4K1142 players that are currently shipping do not support HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection). As a result, any HDMI Input video that is encoded using HDCP will not be displayed by the player. This mostly applies to (non-4K) HD video output from a cable/satellite receiver or Blu-ray player.
We are working to implement HDCP support on the 4K1142 as soon as possible, and HDCP-compatible 4K1142 players will begin to ship mid to late Q4 2014.
In the event that it is not possible to implement HDCP compatibility for current 4K1142 units in the field; they will need to be returned to a BrightSign facility to be securely updated. If you currently have 4K1142 players and require HDCP compatibility, contact BrightSign support for further instructions.
