Asuhirac integrates Densitron IDS into Softron’s OnTheAir software
Densitron, a provider of display, touchscreen technology and specialised broadcast ODM (Original Design Manufacturers) solutions, has announced the sale of its IDS Control System with URready 2RU X86 touchscreen control surface to Asuhirac.
Part of the ASK Corporation, Asuhirac is a systems integrator for the broadcasting and studio market and will offer the Densitron IDS touchscreen control surfaces to broadcast customers as part of a combined package with Softron OnTheAir Video software.
With support from its long-term partner, advanced operations service provider Ahum Labs, Asuhirac is planning to offer broadcasters and media companies throughout Japan the option of a Softron OnTheAir Video solution controlled by Densitron’s IDS via a UReady 2RU X86 control surface.
Described as an “open and powerful playout solution for Mac environments”, 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 broadcasting or live shows. There is support for multiple standard video formats, whilst a Dynamic Graphics Overlay option enhances the capabilities of the Softron system.
Yoshihiro Maeda, Media & Corporate Business Unit Director, ASK Corporation, said, “We have a lot of customers who use the Softron OnTheAir Video software and as a result we have identified a demand for simple and intuitive touch-based operation.
“By combining the Densitron IDS touchscreens with the Softron system, both existing and future end-users will have the option of a powerful control solution that provides an alternative to conventional keyboard and mouse-style operation.”
