Fixed Issues

MTN-4292 Acknowledgement of network settings via apply button

In version the network settings were saved immediately when pressing the Save button, which caused the device to reboot without notifying the user. This is now fixed, and as in earlier software releases, the user is redirected to a new page with an Apply button to confirm the new network configuration.

This issue also affected Zenitel IMT: In combination with version, the Zenitel IMT configuration wizard would get stuck when changing network settings and saving. This is now fixed.

MTN-4238 The Dynamic Range Compression (DRC) could cause signal clipping of the loudspeaker output when the DRC was set to a high value.

Modified how the gain is applied to the DRC to reduce the risk of signal clipping.

Note that DRC is a dynamic digital signal gain adjust function, and some signal clipping may still occur on high DRC gain configuration.


Fixed Issues

DS-706 Internal update, no impact on functionality.

Known Issues

MTN-4121 Known issue: Asterisk discards alternative profiles

Default setting for ITSV-5 sends 3 types (BP & MP & HP). However, Asterisk discards all but the first profile it receives (HP in this case). Since only the "Baseline profile" is supported on the device the video doesn't load. A workaround to this issue is to select "Baseline profile" as the H.264 profile type on the ITSV-5.

The issue has been reported and documented here:
