April 2014 – Analog Way is pleased to announce Orchestra², a revamped and improved new Remote Console designed to control a wide selection of Analog Way’s mid-range Mixers / Seamless Switchers.
Orchestra² (Ref.ORC50) allows control of several generations of Analog Way’s switchers, including the Di-VentiX II, Eikos, Pulse as well as the new Midra™ series such as the Saphyr, Pulse² and QuickVu. In total, the Orchestra² is compatible with 16 Switchers from Analog Way.
Orchestra² can manage, independently or simultaneously, several Switchers, either as stand-alone boxes or in combination, including Soft Edge Blending. It controls up to 6 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 to control the Midra™ series. Orchestra² features off-line programming enabling programming of the Console when Seamless Switchers are not connected. In addition, the Remote Console features the new Snap function, a powerful tool to help quickly position layers.
Its numerous user-friendly, 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 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 ensuring compatibility with the Midra™ series. The Quick Frame key will be available upon request by contacting Analog Way’s Technical Support teams.
