1 Some capture cards have the same name and can only be distinguished by their internal name or driver.

 
 
Can I upgrade a Network Instruments-manufactured, blue GigaStor to Observer 17.2 or later?
Yes, if you have an active maintenance contract. No new features are available on the Gen2 capture card as a result of this name change.
 
 
Can I put a Gen3 capture card in a Network Instruments-manufactured, blue GigaStor?
No, the Gen3 capture card is only available in the GigaStor Gen3 appliance.
 
 
Are firmware upgrades separately available?
Firmware and driver updates are only provided through the Observer installation program. Not every release contains firmware or driver updates; in fact, most do not.
