Turn Any PC Into a Listening Station
Remember the days when giving your Sales Manager a listening station meant running cable through the ceiling, installing a selector panel in the office wall, and mounting speakers in the drop tiles? And then, he could only hear a limited number of the audio channels your plant produced.
Axia iPlay PC software does away with old-fashioned speaker wire and rotary selectors. It allows any Windows PC to listen to streamed audio directly from your Axia network — any streamed audio. Not just Program feeds, but satellite downlinks, remote hosts, news production studios, interview rooms, etc. iPlay lets you give PC monitoring capabilities to PDs, GMs and sales staff using their existing computers, with no special wiring required. Just connect their PC’s NIC to your Axia network, install iPlay, and presto! Every PC is a listening station. There’s even an on-screen level display that meters the audio you’re listening to — great for use as confidence meters for PDs or production personnel.
Users can choose from a list of all available audio, but in big plants that can be a lot to sift through. Not to worry: they can pre-set their favorite channels on the eight user-programmable preset buttons to get quick access to the streams they listen to most. And of course, you can filter out raw mic channels or other selected audio streams to prevent unauthorized listening.
