The following is a short summary of each update. For a more comprehensive list of new features, improvements, and bug fixes, please view the release notes, which are located on the Software Downloads page and contained in each download file.
Firmware Version 4.4.44
This firmware update is intended for the following BrightSign models:
Note that the update files for XD and HD players are different. Make sure to use the download link that corresponds to your player model.
Both XD and HD updates enable new negative time-code events, which allow events to trigger from the end of a video clip (this feature is only available in BrightScript).
The XD firmware update corrects issues with the CVBS (composite video) output through the VGA port. It also fixes a bug that caused HTML5 <video> elements that had looping parameters to not loop.
BrightAuthor Version 188.8.131.52
This version of BrightAuthor is a companion release with the above firmware, so it requires version 4.4.44 to be installed on the players listed above before you publish to them.
This update provides a fix for the Advanced Network Setup issue that we outlined in a previous post. Also, touch-screen events now work in HTML5 zones regardless of whether you check the Display Cursor option or not.
