If you missed our last update post, take a look at 2020.1:
2020.2 pushes Limelight’s hardware even further by adding the ability to zoom and pan simultaneously. It also adds a brand new video mode and important bug fixes. Let us know what features you would like to see in future updates!
3x Hardware Zoom at 60 FPS
- Our last update added 2x Hardware Zoom for all Limelight models at no cost whatsoever. We’ve managed to push our hardware zoom even further with 3x Hardware Zoom. All Limelight models are now capable of 3x Hardware Zoom at 60fps. This makes full-court tracking even easier for every team.
The following gif shows 1x, 2x, and 3x Hardware Zoom from the sector line (full court shot line):

- Robots capable of shooting from both long and short distances in 2020 would have found it difficult to use Hardware Zoom on their Limelights without the use of an active, adjustable Limelight mount. We have incorporated Hardware Panning to solve this problem.
This gif shows Hardware Panning while using 3x Hardware Zoom. This should simplify mounting for teams who wish to use Hardware Zoom:

- Address driver issues that were breaking the color balance sliders
- Revert all networking-related drivers to 2019 season variants to address a small number of network performance reports from teams
