These release notes are related to FW V2.0.5 tested on IP Former TPA400

Change Log

New Features

In this update the following new features were added to the image

  • Support of HTTPS secure connection to media streaming servers to fetch audio streams
  • Support for SIPS: Secures the establishment of the connection with SIP servers using SSL/TLS
  • Support for SRTP: Encrypts the media packets transported over SIP
  • Support for SIP peer to peer calls
  • TPA400 > Amplifier gain settings configurable according to the available PoE type at the switch:
    • PoE Optimized: Maximize compatibility with switches supporting PoE IEEE802.3af standard, at maximum level the amplifier will set itself according to the available power from the switch
    • Max Power: The amplifier always sets itself at maximum capabilities despite the available power identified from the switch (use this option to get a louder volume out of your IP Former)

Fixes / Improvements

  • Fixed: SynApps automatic discovery (requires OPT72 being supported, activated and correctly configured, in the DHCP server part of the network)
  • Fixed: RTP unicast URL validation
  • Fixed: Restart services after changing configuration

Known Limitations

  • Manual reboot required when Avahi setting is enabled / disabled to activate / deactivate the function
  • When IP Address is changed from DHCP to Static and vice versa the volume of the source is restored to default (re-submit source configuration to set the real values)
  • G.711 uLaw / Mono 24kHz - G.711 aLaw / Mono 24KHz - Not handled by the playback engine
  • PCM 24 Khz 16 bit mono big endian - PCM 8 Khz 16 bit mono big endian - PCM 24 Khz 16 bit mono little endian - PCM 8 Khz 16 bit mono little endian - PCM 32 Khz 16 bit mono big endian - PCM 12 Khz 16 bit mono big endian - PCM 32 Khz 16 bit mono little endian - PCM 12 Khz 16 bit mono little endian - PCM 44.1 kHz 16bit stereo little endian - PCM 48KHz 16bit stereo little endian - PCM 48KHz 16bit stereo big endian - Not handled by the Playback engine
  • Informacast version supported and tested: 12.1.1 and 12.17.1
  • Certain HTTP playlist URLs are not parsed by the playback library, i.e.:http://www.radioswissjazz.ch/live/mp3.m3u 

Known Issues

  • Random clicks heard when notifications from Informacast 12.1.1 and 12.17.1 - The issue could be related to the InformaCast sends the RTP stream (sequence numbering is not compliant with the protocol as described in RFC 1889)
  • Syslog not sending messages to other syslog devices in the network
  • G.711 uLaw / Mono 8KHz - Handled by playback engine but audio drops and crackles may be experienced
  • Reset to factory defaults from UI (also known as soft-reset) resets also network settings
