Analog Way has announced Orchestra², an updated remote console designed for 16 of the company's mid-range mixers and seamless switchers.
Orchestra² can control of several generations of Analog Way switchers, including the Di-VentiX II, Eikos and Pulse, as well as the new Midra series such as the Saphyr, Pulse² and QuickVu.
It can manage several switchers simultaneously, either as standalone boxes or in combination, including soft edge-blending. It controls up to six independent screen configurations in different locations and stores up to 64 presets per screen configuration.
The new design includes a Quick Frame button to control Midra series products. Orchestra² features off-line programming, so the console may be programmed when seamless switchers are not connected. A powerful new Snap function helps to position layers quickly.
Numerous customisable and configurable presets can be used to set up the screen configuration, and are easily accessible during the presentation. Direct input/output selection access makes last-minute modification easy. The complete configuration of the event can be saved both internally and externally (via the USB port) for future use.
Orchestra and Axion2 owners can download the new firmware from Analog Way’s website for compatibility with the Midra series.
Orchestra² will be available in May.
