This page contains the latest versions and release notes of the Wave Player (macOS) and Wave Player (Windows) software, as well as the Wave Camera Firmware and User Guide. If you don't have a Wave yet, you can also download sample footage to try out in Wave Player.
Please note that both updates (Wave Player and Camera Firmware) may be required to take advantage of the latest features. Updating Wave Player alone does not automatically update the Camera Firmware.

Wave Player (Windows)

Latest Version

Release Notes

v1.3.0 (11 August, 2021)

    Added Amplify (Beta). This feature amplifies small movements (down to sub-pixel) to make them more visible to the naked eye, for uses such as drone vibration analysis.
    Added AI Enhance (Beta). This is a deep-learning-based 2K to 4K super-resolution network trained specifically to take into account subsampling artifacts of Wave 2K footage.
    Refactored the UI into three workflow tabs: Open, Adjust, and Export.
    Added thumbnail previews to the Open and Export tabs.
    Added an export queue for staging multiple exports.
    Added an option for exporting in camera-native format. This will create a new clip folder with *.kwi and *.kwv files for the marked portion of the clip.
    Added an option to crop to the nearest 16:9 output size for resolutions that are slightly larger than a standard format (e.g. 2176 to 2160p).
    The UI window now supports resizing and maximization (full-screen).
    Playback speed capped to the selected export FPS. (Export speed remains unlimited, for those with high-end desktops.)
    Performance and memory optimizations.
    Other bugfixes.

Camera Firmware

Latest Version

Wave Firmware v1.3.0 (ZIP, 3.12MB)

Firmware Update Instructions

The camera firmware can be updated over USB using the following procedure:
    1.
    While holding down the Scroll Wheel, press and release the Power Button to power on the camera in Firmware Update mode. Continue to hold down the Scroll Wheel until the Record LED flashes slowly.
    2.
    Plug in the USB cable. The camera will appear as a USB drive. This drive is separate from the one where clips are stored, so your footage won’t be visible but is safe and not affected by the firmware update.
    3.
    Drag the new firmware file (WAVE.BIN) into the fw folder.
    4.
    Click the Scroll Wheel. The Record LED will begin to flash quickly as the firmware is updated.
    5.
    Wait for the camera to automatically restart with the new firmware. This should take at most 30 seconds.

Release Notes

v1.3.0 (11 August, 2021)

    New default color profile (COLOR3) with gamma of 2.2, better matching Rec.709. This is only a metadata hint and does not affect the recorded data. (Applied gamma can be changed at will in Wave Player to suit the scene and exposure.)
    File format for the internal SSD changed to exFAT, which has lower overhead, improved write speed margins. (This takes effect the next time the SSD is formatted after the firmware update.)
    Internal SSD is now explicitly read-only over USB. This is to prevent cases where files added or deleted over USB create file system fragmentation that negatively impacts peak write speeds.
    Improved HDMI playback buffering and smoothness. Dropping to 1x from fast-forward will now resume 30fps playback.
    Better indication for internal SSD near-full and full.
    Other minor bugfixes and improvements.
