We have a new update for Airtame’s firmware (that nifty software that runs on your Airtame device) and it includes some improvements that we can’t wait for you to try out. The last 1.6 update focused on stability. This 1.7 update continues on that track to keep improving the foundation before we move on to begin adding new features.

Highlights

The 1.7 firmware update includes:

  • Improved WPA2-Enterprise support
  • Expanded support for older TVs (CEA/VESA)
  • Other bug fixes and improvements

WPA2-Enterprise support

We have added further support for WPA Enterprise EAP-TLS (certificates). This is something that was specially requested by larger enterprises. We are therefore very happy to announce that it is now possible to upload your own custom WiFi certificates to your Airtame and thereby allow the device onto your certificate-based network.

As you can see in the image below, this means in your Airtame’s settings, you will now have the choice between Automatic mode or EAP-TLS mode.

General Fixes

CEA/VESA video support modes

We’ve added CEA and VESA video modes for older displays and resolutions. Some customers experienced issues when plugging Airtame into the HDMI port of older TVs and computer monitors. This added support should fix most instances.

In general, Airtame can be configured to a 16:10 aspect ratio that many computer monitors and projectors use today. The two resolution settings we’ve added are:

  • 1920×1200
  • 1280×800

To find out how to adjust the output resolution, read our help article here.

Bug fixes and improvements

In general, there were various bug fixes that have improved the stability of the device.

Go update your firmware

Now that you’re caught up on the changes included in this new product update, make sure your firmware is updated to 1.7! Your firmware should update automatically when it is connected to the internet.

You should expect the update to take around 15 minutes to complete, depending on your network.
