4.1.39
February 11, 2020

New Features

  • Support for Dante Domain Manager
  • Support for Dante Device Lock
  • Support for AES67

Improvements

  • For enhanced security, first-time user interface access will prompt the user to set up a passphrase. Users have the option of continuing without a passphrase, allowing for Shure Designer configuration software to securely configure the device within a location.
    • Passphrase length must be at least 8 characters up to a maximum of 64, all characters allowed
    • The passphrase may be disabled after the first login
    • Downgrade caution:
      • After the 4.1.37 upgrade, the device’s new passphrase (and/or its audio encryption passphrase) might exceed the allowed length of its prior firmware version. In that case, downgrading requires the following procedure to ensure passphrase compatibility:
        • Prior to downgrading, log in and disable the passphrase(s) or the change the passphrase(s) to the character length allowed by the prior firmware to be downgraded to.
        • Perform the firmware downgrade. Enable passphrase(s) as desired.
    • Using Designer software:
  • When multiple devices at different firmware levels are put into a location using Shure Designer software, the location passphrase for those devices must abide by the length and character set limitations of the older firmware. Advice: Update all devices in the location to the latest firmware in order to use a more robust passphrase.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where there was the potential for a loss of audio after a power cycle when using Static IP setting.

Known Issues

  • AES67 support is only available on UltimoX hardware
    • ANI4IN devices manufactured as of January 2018 are compatible with AES67
