OnTheAir Manager is a Client-Server application designed to work with Softron Media Services OnTheAir Node and OnTheAir Server.

OnTheAir Manager is used to prepare the schedules, to preview the clips, check which clips are ready to air, and to take control of multiple OnTheAir Nodes and all this from a single networked workstation.

OnTheAir Manager uses a graphical calendar style interface presenting a unique and never before achieved ease of use for scheduling complex programming of single or multiple channels.

OnTheAir Manager can send schedules to any number of OnTheAir Nodes and it will automatically assign graphics, control video routers, and send GPI triggers while considering the different user defined categories of each event, playlist and clip.

OnTheAir Manager will work with live events that can be triggered automatically or manually (for example by GPI .) to ensure trouble free play out, OnTheAir Manager provides detailed reports of potential problems such as overrun and underrun conditions as well as offline clips.

This way the operator will be able to quickly address the possible issues before they happen.
