Beta 2 Issues Resolved by Beta 3

  • VISION 24 monitors flicker on SDI video, roughly every 8 seconds

  • Resolved red boxes appearing around video on Multiview Page
  • Fixed Peaking Tool not applying when the monitor boots
  • Recommended Practices
  • Connect third-party external recorders directly downstream of your source device (i.e. camera), not downstream of the monitor
