Cambridge, UK, 18th October 2011 - JoeCo Limited has announced a major  
software update for its award-winning BlackBox Recorder series. 
Version 2.2 contains a number of features designed to give the user 
greater working efficiency and includes many benefits inherited from 
the development of the BlackBox BBR64-MADI and Dante Recorders. These 
include enhancements to the underlying bespoke operating system 
alongside improved methods of displaying critical information to the 
user whilst maintaining the conceptual simplicity of the user interface.

Simple interface changes, from clarifying clock sources to flashing 
the transport controls while an operation is pending, provide a much 
slicker user experience, imparting more information to the user with 
greater speed and clarity. The Pre Fade Listen system, introduced in 
the BBR64-MADI development, now allows more rapid sweep through the 
channels with a quick return to "mix" output.

It's also faster to enter record and to finalize the Broadcast WAV 
files thus created; timecode reading is quicker and more accurate; 
master/slave performance has been enhanced and further support has 
been added for particular drive types. Additionally, the software now 
runs background checks on the drive to create a more accurate map of 
free space to further speed entering record.

The Player software add-on has taken advantage of improvements to 
triggering and now also supports v0 BWF files, which some older DAWs 
still produce. These and more enhancements are encapsulated in an 
upgraded field update manager.

"With reliability and speed key to the BlackBox, we are constantly 
working to ensure that our users can achieve maximum working 
efficiency from their recorder" said Joe Bull, JoeCo's Managing 
Director. "Having worked hard to develop the new BBR64-MADI and Dante 
systems, we like to share the benefits of these developments with our 
existing customers wherever possible."

The new Version 2.2 software update can be downloaded free of charge 
from the End User area of the JoeCo website: www.joeco.co.uk.
