Teradek has released RT firmware package v1.1.5 is for the CTRL.3, CTRL.1, MK3.1 controllers, and MDR.X.

I reviewed Teradek’s RT system on the site earlier in the year.

Key new features are:

  • Ability to save and transfer lens maps using the RT iOS App
  • Massively reduced boot time for MDR.X, CTRL.3, CTRL.1Option to reverse input direction (in addition to motor flip)Motor class indication on response/accuracy menus
  • If you’ve never upgraded your RT device firmware before, familiarize yourself with the upgrade process by reading the article linked below.

NOTE: The SmallHD overlays configuration option has moved out of the ‘ADV’ menu and into a new menu called I/O Config. After updating, to enable SmallHD overlays again, open the I/O Config menu and select SmallHD.
