  1. Quasar SR Module, Firmware Update v2.0.2


Quasar SR firmware v2.0.2 is a critical field update that addresses an issue with Top Channel Encoders on Quasar SR surface modules addressing the wrong channel strip.

Please follow the steps below to update the firmware of each of your surface's SR Modules, ensuring the correct operation and maximum reliability of your system.

This is a firmware update which applies to the SR modules only; this is not a System Update for the Quasar console and should not be confused with it. What some customers may refer to as 'Firmware' is in fact the system's Top-Level Software which defines the Quasar functionalities and GUI. This is what we normally refer to as 'Software' or 'System Update'
