REVISED TIMELINE: Important Notice for the Core 110f

A new feature enabling improved camera imaging and USB video bridging performance has been moved to Q-SYS Designer Software v9.3.0. In order to take advantage of these new features using the Core 110f’s on-board AV USB bridge, the cable infrastructure between the Core 110f's USB Device Port (Type B) and the PC's USB Host Port (type A) must be USB 3.0 compatible, including the cable, port, and anything in between. If you choose to use USB 2.0 infrastructure after updating to v9.3.0, AV bridging performance will be limited to 540p. Note that this does not affect other Q-SYS bridging devices.
