ON AIR flex

"Flex" Operating philosophy

The structure of the ON AIR flex is extremely flexible and scalable. Two different types of hardware cassettes and a virtual user interface are available that are networked via IP. The system has a modular structure and can only consist of a fader cassette plus audio processor, but can also be composed of several OFAD cassettes, OMON cassettes and screen-based operation. The OFAD fader cassette consists of four channel strips each with 10 buttons, a double rotary encoder and an OLED display. The OMON monitor cassette offers two small color TFTs, two double rotary encoders and various multi-color buttons. All controls and indicators in the fader and monitor cassettes can be assigned custom functions. Both types of cassettes can be easily integrated into any studio furniture thanks to the light metal frame construction

The virtual user interface uses modern web technologies such as Javascript and Webkit. A specially developed web server establishes the connection between the screen user interface and the control logic of the mixer. The so-called RUI interface as well as the control logic of the console are freely configurable. It can be viewed on any web-enabled device that has a current web browser and does not require an app installation. It is available for Windows, OS-X as well as the mobile platforms Android, iOS, Windows Phone. A separate configuration language allows the customer to carry out the configuration himself. With ON AIR flex, the user gains a flexibility that allows him to retrospectively customize his interfaces and operating concepts without the need for time-consuming updates.
