Analog Way has announced the Orchestra², what the company calls a revamped and improved new Remote Console. The console can manage, independently or simultaneously, several switchers, either as stand-alone 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 console comes with a new design and a Quick Frame button was added for control. Orchestra² features off-line programming, enabling programming of the console. In addition, the Remote Console features the new snap function, a powerful tool to help quickly position layers. Its customizable and configurable presets enable the set-up of the screen configuration, so that they are easily accessible during the presentation. A last minute modification is easy thanks to the direct input/output selection access. Also equipped with a USB port, the complete configuration of the event can be saved both internally and externally for future use.
Analog Way says it will start shipping the Orchestra² in May 2014. Orchestra and Axion² owners will be able to download the new firmware on Analog Way’s website.
