Quasar Science has released Firmware v0.9a for its Double Rainbow and Rainbow 2 RGBX linear LED fixtures.


The update introduces new advanced routing modes and the ability for any RR or R2 fixture to be a CRMX transmitter, as well as improvements to the dimming engine. It also expands networking options by adding new signal-routing options, allowing RR and R2 fixtures to bridge a variety of wired and wireless lighting protocols from within the fixture, including ethernet-to-DMX node, Wireless DMX transmitter or Wireless RX to wired output.


Firmware v0.9a introduces the ability for any RR or R2 fixture to route a wired input signal and send it out as Wireless DMX. When using sACN or Art-Net, the input and output universe can be independently assigned. Users can now also assign a universe color to the wireless status LED to provide a visual reference for which fixtures are linked to which RR-R2s when in TX mode.


Another new feature is Latest Takes Precedence merging, which allows two control devices on the same local network to send Multicast sACN at the same priority.


Improvements in the firmware update include smoother low-end dimming in the 0-30 percent range.
