Versions

  • Improvement: Uploads automatically recover from interruptions in network connectivity or short downtimes of the upload destination.
  • New feature: Color correction with custom LUTs. Contact support for help in installing your custom LUTs on the Box.
  • New feature: Review and comment on uploaded footage in the FDX cloud. In the "file download" section, navigate to any fileset that includes a "Preview" or custom H.264 transcode. Now use the "Review" switch at the top of the screen to switch to the FDX Cloud Player.
  • Improvement: Copy Report emails now include a list file checksums in Media Hash List format.
  • New feature: Configurable directory structure for storage devices. In the project settings, choose the metadata values to use as directory names to organise your filesets by shooting date, camera type, etc.
  • Bug fix: After copying one source device, no processes could be started until the box was rebooted.
  • New feature: You can now control the FDX Box directly using a monitor, keyboard and mouse instead of a WiFi connection.
  • Bug fix: Custom H.264 transcode outputs from projects with multiple backup devices were not compatible with some players.
  • Bug fix: Custom H.264 transcode outputs had lower bitrate than configured in project settings.
  • New feature: You can now configure projects to store up to four backup copies of all data.
  • New feature: Media Hash Lists for offloaded data. Each "original" folder on the storage device now contains a MHL file which can be used to verify the integrity of the copied data later. Uploads of original data also include this file.
  • New feature: The Copy Report pdf now contains all copied files and the referring MD5 Hash checksums.
  • New feature: Copy Report emails now include an "md5sums.txt" file for verification of the copied data. The checksums in this file are calculated from the original files on the source media when they are first offloaded.
  • Bug fix: In the FDX Cloud interface, process and assigned device tickets were only visible to administrators. Now they are visible to any user with permission to view the related project.
  • New feature: Once opened, project sections on the dashboard stay open until you close them.
  • New feature: Instead of renaming storage devices to show project name and backup set, we now write a text file ("filmdatabox-info.txt") onto each storage device. The project name, backup set and device sequence number are also shown in the user interface. To manually rename a storage device, click on its device ticket and look for the pen icon beside the device name.
  • New feature: The Project Settings section now shows the list of users who are associated with each project.
  • New feature: For faster upload speeds over WiFi, you can now connect a USB WiFi dongle. Supported devices: Edimax EW-7811Un V2, TP-Link TL-WN725N.
