OnTheAir Video can be used for automated playout using its own scheduler or it can serve as a clip store for live news operations, local broadcast or live shows. Schedules can be created weeks in advance.
Thanks to its powerful and reliable playback engine, OnTheAir Video supports within the same playlist many video formats such as Apple ProRes, MPEG-4, MPEG IMX, DVCam, DV, DVCProHD, DVCPro, DVCPro 50, DV50, Photo JPEG, M-JPEG etc... OnTheAir Video can support full HD (optional) resolution playback using Apple ProRes, DVCProHD or uncompressed video clips. All codecs can be mixed but the frame size must be identical. Soon, you'll be able to mix not only codecs, but also different frame size (SD, HD1440, HD1920...) in a playlist. Downscaling and upscaling will be automatic.
OnTheAir Video is an open solution. It does not require any proprietary hardware as it uses the AJA, Blackmagic Decklink or Matrox video cards. Its playlists are XML based meaning that they can be created by an external automation application. OnTheAir Video also supports GPI (optional software), and external Actions via AppelScript.
No need to be a computer specialist to run your own TV station! Simply create a few playlists using video files exported from Final Cut Pro (or any editing software) and you'll be broadcasting in minutes!
The overlay module (optional) allows the use of your graphics, for your station identification (that can be different for each clip). OnTheAir Video CG is a more complex Character Generator. OnTheAir Video CG can handle simultaneously various tickers, animated image sequence.
This software is compatible with: Blackmagic Design, AJA, Matrox
