Leap Second Addition for Video VBOX and VBOX LapTimer Firmware

on .

On 1st July a second was added to the Satellite Navigation Network – called a Leap Second. This is an event that occurs every two or three years and is necessary to keep the operational time used by GPS satellites in line with the Earth’s rotation, which alters very slightly from year to year.

Consequently we have made a small alteration to the Video VBOX and VBOX LapTimer firmware to take the leap second into account, to ensure that the UTC time remains consistent and correct when recording data. You can download this firmware from here.
