Easy integration with other applications
- Control many matrix video switchers through RS232
- Control Blackmagic-Design Videohub or AJA Kumo through Ethernet
- Can be controlled directly from OnTheAir Video or OnTheAir Node for automatic switching
OnTheAir Switch can control many matrix video switchers through RS232 or Ethernet. The application is AppleScriptable, and has a REST API, allowing it to be controlled from any application (even applications from third parties). It can be used as a standalone application or integrated with OnTheAir Video, MovieRecorder or OnTheAir Node. Check the specifications page to see which router is supported.
We can theoretically support any video router, but we need to implement the protocol for it of course. Before buying OnTheAir Switch, you can check the specifications page to check which Matrix Video Switcher is already supported and if yours is not in the list, simply contact us to ask if your Switcher can be supported and how to proceed.
