Wave Player (Windows)

Release Notes and Previous Versions

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.

v1.2.1 (15 June, 2021)

WavePlayer_v1_2_1.zip
16MB
Binary
Wave Player v1.2.1 (Windows)
  • Fixed a bug that would offset codec compression state by one frame. This is necessary to support Camera FW v1.2.1's faster adaptation rate for the constant-bit-rate codec.

v1.1.1 (18 March, 2021)

WavePlayer_v1_1_1.zip
16MB
Binary
Wave Player v1.1.1 (Windows)
  • Fixed a bug in the 2K shader pipeline introduced in v1.1.0 that was causing some over-sharpening and edge artifacts.

v1.1.0 (9 March, 2021)

WavePlayer_v1_1_0.zip
16MB
Binary
Wave Player v1.1.0 (Windows)
  • Support for Camera FW v1.1.0.
  • Color processing pipeline updated to better match the on-camera HDMI preview. Image adjustment order of operations and settings are now common to both, with settings values stored in clip metadata.
  • New export options: Adjustable frame rate (24/25/30fps) and H.264.
  • Support for 1920x1080 display resolution.
  • GPU compatibility and performance improvements.
  • Minor bugfixes.

Camera Firmware

Release Notes and Previous Versions

v1.4.0 (18 October, 2021)

Wave Firmware v1.4.0 (ZIP, 3.12MB)
  • Minor tweaks to COLOR3 profile: decreased black level and increased shadow saturation rolloff in 4K to reduce magenta-tinted shadows in underexposed conditions. This is only a metadata hint and does not affect the recorded data. (Applied black level and shadow saturation rolloff can be changed at will in Wave Player to suit the scene and exposure.)
  • Added level-triggered mode for General Purpose Input (GPI), for easier remote start/stop control in cases where the Record LED or HDMI preview are not being monitored.
  • Added STANDBY fan speed setting.

v1.3.0 (11 August, 2021)

Wave Firmware v1.3.0 (ZIP, 3.12MB)
  • 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.

v1.2.1 (15 June, 2021)

WaveFirmware_v1_2_1.zip
3MB
Binary
Wave Firmware v1.2.1
  • Increased the adaptation rate of the constant-bit-rate codec to accommodate more rapid changes in scene contrast with less RAM buffering. Wave Player v1.2.1 or newer is recommended for use with this firmware as it addresses a bug that the faster adaptation rate exaggerates.

v1.2.0 (12 May, 2021)

WaveFirmware_v1_2_0.zip
3MB
Binary
Wave Firmware v1.2.0
  • Loads camera settings on boot from the most recently recorded clip.
  • Continuously update HDMI black level based on sensor temperature when in STANDBY. (Previously required menu interaction to update.)
  • Fixed a bug that was referencing incorrect dark frame calibration data at low temperatures (<10ºC ambient). As a result, low-temperature black level and FPN is improved.
  • Added support for factory defect pixel mapping and correction.

v1.1.0 (9 March, 2021)

WaveFirmware_v1_1_0.zip
3MB
Binary
Wave Firmware v1.1.0
  • Updates to compression and color pipeline.
  • Improved out-of-the-camera color profile (closer to Rec.709). This does not affect recorded data, but provides a more color-accurate HDMI preview and matching starting point for the Wave Player image adjustments.
  • Improved highlight handling, approximately 1/2-stop more dynamic range. This is done by allowing some sensor clipping and using the unclipped channels to recover highlight detail, aided by a smoother highlight desaturation curve. New image adjustments are available in the latest Wave Player to expose these settings.
  • Improved match between HDMI preview and Wave Player image adjustment starting point. Image adjustment order of operations and settings are now common to both, with settings values stored in clip metadata.
  • Added more scroll wheel filtering to prevent jumpy menu scrolling.
  • Moved Shutter Line Artifact compensation to on-camera.
  • Additional minor bug fixes and error handling.

v1.0.1 (27 January, 2021)

WaveFirmware_v1_0_1.zip
3MB
Binary
Wave Firmware v1.0.1
  • Improved compensation for Shutter Line Artifact. This sensor artifact shows up as a dark row across the frame when one frame's exposure starts while the previous frame is still being read out, and is most severe in underexposed conditions. This firmware synchronizes exposure start to an exact row and, together with the latest Wave Player version, uses that information to better compensate for the artifact.
  • Fixed a bug that could, in rare cases, cause image corruption after switching between 4K and 2K mode that would persist until the next power cycle. Momentary HDMI preview glitches during the 4K/2K mode switch are normal as the pipeline is reconfigured.

v1.0.0 (10 December, 2020)

Wave Firmware v1.0.0
