OnAir Radio, as a complete radio automation software system, is able to connect to both analogue and digital consoles; OnAir Radio can be connected to the Axia models from the Telos Alliance, the digital radio consoles of Wheatstone or the USB consoles of D&R. Analogue consoles can be attached with an USB Labjack.
The Axia models from the Telos Alliance and the digital radio consoles of Wheatstone are excellent examples of digital radio: Not only the music is transported over TCP/IP, also all the I/O traffic for your Faderstarts is TCP/IP based. This means that you only need a network cable from OnAir Radio and you are ready to go! OnAir Radio is fully compatible with both Axia and Wheatstone.
OnAir Radio also can be combined with the Airlite console of D&R. Transport of your audio and I/O for the faderstarts and other input or output signals is done over USB.
Of course, OnAir Radio can also combined with your analogue console.
The LabJack USB device will then handle the I/O communication and this can be used for your fader-starts.
We can connect all consoles to OnAir Radio. Just tell us what console you are using and we can connect your console to OnAir Radio in a couple of days. Of course, this service is completely free and part of our support.
Centrally operating multiple stations on remote locations
If you have multiple stations on different remote locations and want to manage them from your headquarters our remote location player solution is the way to manage all your stations centrally.
- The library is managed at the central location.
- The scheduler and the playlists are managed at the central location.
- The commercials are managed at the central location.
- The files are managed at the central location.
- After making schedules for all your remote sites in the central location they are distributed completely automatically to all your remote stations.
- All files like music, promo’s and commercials are being synchronized in the background to all remote locations using a peer-to-peer mechanism.
- If a playlist for one or more of the remote sites is changed at the central location, the playlist will automatically change in the remote sites. This will be done near real-time and the process is completely automatic.
- It is still possible to operate the players on the remote site independently. In this way, you can have a nice mix between live from the remote location and still making the playlists centrally.
