How to Check your MCU
and AD-1 Firmware

The following guide applies to the following units:
MCU-100, MCU-200, MCU-100P, MCU-200P, MCU-100S, MCU-200S,
MCU-100J, MCU-200J, AD-1, AD-1P, AD-1S, AD-1J, RMC-230

Please note that the optional RMC-230 controller currently only works with the Sony MCU system and cameras and there is not a function to verify the firmware version. It is recommended to run the latest firmware update and note on your unit that it was updated

To check your current firmware versions:

-Connect an AD-1 and camera to your MCU unit
-Power on the camera and MCU unit
-Select the camera using the Cam select buttons
-Move those 5 three-way switches to their center position

-Power on the unit
-Move the knee switch to the down position
-Press and hold menu for 3 seconds

-When you see "F1-1" on the LCD, press the small select knob
-The LCD will display the firmware version of the MCU unit

-Press the small select knob and rotate it until you see "F1-2" on the LCD, then press it again
-The LCD will display the firmware version of the AD-1 unit for the active camera

-Power off and on your unit again to return to normal operation

Note that the camera needs to be connected and powered on in order to read the firmware

Please e-mail with your camera
model and we will send the latest firmware version that
best supports your cameras
