Quicklink releases new version of the Midi Backpack

Quicklink have released version 4.0 of the Quicklink Midi Backpack. Version 4.0 of the Quicklink Midi Backpack hosts a variety of new features and additions.

Swansea(22 Nov 2016)

Version 4.0 of the Quicklink Midi Backpack now has a new improved, diversified antenna system, designed to improve signal strength, allowing greater available bandwidth.

The Midi Backpack now also has a new bonding algorithm. The new algorithm helps the Midi Backpack perform better on marginal 3G/4G networks, has reduced latency and is higher performing on 3G, 4G and LTE networks. Ensuring the most consistent and reliable network connection possible.

The updated version of the Midi Backpack now has a new HEVC library codec. The new HEVC library increases picture quality with enhanced packet loss concealment. As a result, more processing power is offloaded onto the GPU, resulting in reduced power usage which in-turn results in a longer battery life.

A Store and Forward file transfer feature has also been added into Version 4.0. The Store and Forward feature allows for offline encoding and transmission for later transfer when a network becomes available.
