Software updates

Please make sure to keep all your devices up to date with latest software for their best performance. Use Robe Uploader to update your fixtures, it provides you with a detailed changelog for each update. Here we lis some notable updates:

Dedicated Tint channel for ESPRITE™

There have been many software improvements since the last newsletter, including the REAP™ - Robe Ethernet Access Portal. Newly, we have also added remote Green correction (Tint) adjustment settings for all ESPRITE™ models. In order to keep existing programming intact, we had to add two new DMX Modes in which this new channel is included.

RoboSpot™ updates

  • FORTE™ has been added into RoboSpot™.

  • New additional RoboSpot™ MotionCamera settings for automatic or manual Color/BW mode in low light situations are now provided.

  • Saving showfile with “Manual RDM Discovery” now also saves DMX channels’ default values for better results when using in a standalone setup without DMX console.

  • We have also implemented green correction feature into RoboSpot. Operator can now use this channel directly from RoboSpot and map it on the screen, fader or roller wheels. This feature gives the operator even better control and more flexibility to adjust tint, independently of the DMX console. Available for all Robin fixtures with the Green correction channel.

Extra Quiet mode for FORTE™

Software update for FORTE™ is bringing especially fine-tuned Quiet mode for silent operation (including a setting for Fans off during blackout), smoother framing shutter movement, improved gobo rotation and many other improvements.

PixelPatt improvements

Many small but important changes have been done in the pixelPATT™ software improving initial effect values and Power channel handling (affecting for example remotely adjustable DMX Input switch).

Robe Uploader update brings Important Updates indication

We have added a way to indicate that a fixture software update brings some “Important Updates” in situations, where the software change could affect existing programming. Fixtures marked with a !read changelog! label in the ROBE Uploader now require an additional press of the “Perform Update” icon, to allow the operator to review these changes before proceeding with the update. This feature is fully documented in section 8.8. Important Updates of Technical Bulletin 54 – ROBE Uploader, version 1.0.7.
